The Affordable Care Act (ACA). The ACA creates new competitive private health insurance markets - referred to as State-based Marketplaces (SBMs) - that will give millions of Americans and small businesses access to affordable healthcare coverage. HHS provides oversight and monitoring of SBMs to ensure they maintain adequate operational systems. Effective and efficient oversight of Marketplaces will help ensure that affordable and quality health coverage is available to all Americans through monitoring, reporting, and oversight of financial and other Marketplace activities. The SMAR is the primary vehicle to insure comprehensive compliance with all reporting requirements contained in the ACA and applicable Federal Regulations. It is specifically called for in Section 1313(a)(1) of the Act which requires an SBM to keep an accurate accounting of all activities, receipts, and expenditures, and to submit a report annually to the Secretary concerning such accounting. Instructions governing specific facets of the activities covered by the report are contained both in the Act and in various sections of applicable Federal Regulations. CMS has designed the SMAR to reduce the data collection to the maximum extent possible. While it is intended as a comprehensive compliance review to ensure SBM are fulfilling their statutory requirements, very little additional data gathering is required to complete the form. The respondents can answer most questions by attestations and uploading existing documents. Respondents complete the report entirely online.

Miscellaneous Actions
The overall burden hours for this approval increased because the number of SBEs/SPE-FPs increased from 17 to 21, and an additional hour of burden has been included in the new calculation to account for additional burden based on the new required Redeterminations Plan Template for SBEs. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) previously approved this information collection in June 2019, with a total of 3,415 burden hours for 17 SBEs/SBE-FPs. CMS estimates the burden for this approval to be 4,281 hours for 21 SBEs/SBE-FPs.
