Question: Can privately held for-profit companies become enrollment agents for ACA?

Answer: The ACA does not rule out the option of for-profit assister entities. Covered California was considering the option of certifying large retail stores like CVS Pharmacy, Costco, Wal-Mart, etc. to be enrollment assister entities They recently decided not to go there. That does not mean that they are not open to the possibility of working with other for-profit businesses to boost enrollment.

Just like the answer says, YES, for-profit organizations can become enrollment agents for Covered California. These organizations probably will not charge a fee for enrolling individuals into the exchange since they get paid by the insurance companies for each person that they enroll..
