The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires every state to establish a health insurance exchange (also called Health Insurance MarketplaceSM) to facilitate the purchase of health insurance for individuals and small businesses. Through the Center of Program Integrity (CPI), CMS has strong oversight and internal controls to protect consumers enrolled in the Marketplaces and safeguard taxpayer dollars. CMS develops and enforces rules for insurance agents, and brokers and others who assist with FFM enrollments.  The Marketplace Program Integrity Contractor (MPIC) is designed to support this oversight. Through research, investigation and data analysis, the desired outcomes of the MPIC efforts are to prevent, detect, and resolve noncompliance with Marketplace rules, requirements, and laws; recommend administrative action to CMS; and recommend referral to law enforcement if potential fraud and abuse is identified.
