Session Description

U.S. states are grappling to establish their health insurance exchanges (HIX) by Jan 2014. They also face the need to upgrade the Medicaid eligibility and the enrollment systems, at a minimum, to support the huge increase in supported individuals. States that integrate the systems with HIX will encounter the significant challenge of bridging the platforms to achieve interoperability, realize 'No Wrong Door' promise, and deliver improved healthcare in a sustainable ecosystem. Drawing from experience with multiple state Medicaid systems, expertise in systems modernization and developing an industry-leading HIX platform, this session will discuss orchestration of the following:

  • IT modernization for Medicaid systems, and application of commercial best practices for cost reduction, predictable delivery, and flexible deployment
  • Deployment of zero-operating cost HIX with business and technology architecture that is flexible with evolving federal regulations
  • Integration of Medicaid systems with HIX to meet the requirements and timelines, in addition to leveraging HIX grants and enhanced federal match, for eligibility and enrollment
