Are issuers able to submit separate Prescription Drug, Network ID, Network Adequacy/ECP, Service Area, and Accreditation Templates?
Yes. However, if an issuer does provide separate templates, the items used by both markets must be provided in each market’s templates and be exactly the same. For example, if an issuer’s individual and small group market both use a service area MIS001 then that service area must be exactly the same on both the individual and small group template. Issuers may not change the templates after the initial submission unless requested by DIFS or CMS.
