RESOURCES

Adding Assister Credit

  • It is very important for consumers to capture an assister’s identification number if an assister helps the consumer with their Marketplace application. If a consumer seeks the help of an assister after already completing a portion of the Marketplace application the consumer has the option to “Go Back” in the application to give an assister credit for assisting them with their application. HERE are instructions for how to “Go Back” and input assister information.
