ACA shopping log-in changes

Beginning on Monday, April 4, the way you’ll access the shopping pages for ACA medical plans in Blueprint for Agents will change. After clicking the “Shopping” button and then the “Medical Plans Shopping and Enrollment” link, you’ll be directed to a landing page listing instructions on how to access HealthSherpa’s shopping site.
