Deltek Pulse: Health care and social services – February 2012 recap

Deltek Analyst Aila Altman reports.

As the January 2014 implementation deadline fast approaches, February was yet again chock-full of news surrounding health insurance exchanges (HIXs). While some states continue to make progress toward meeting the deadline, others are still contesting the federal HIX mandate and plan to wait out the results of this month’s Supreme Court case surrounding its legality.
On Feb. 22, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) awarded additional Level One and Two establishment grants to 10 states, totaling nearly $230 million. Among them, Colorado, awarded $18 million, completed proposal submissions for two HIX-related procurements: HIX Services and HIX Operational Services. Other consulting and quality assurance-related procurements are in the pipeline. Nevada, awarded its second Level One grant worth $15.3 million, will use the funding to build a rules-based eligibility engine, to develop an operational plan, and to determine certain business and IT requirements unrelated to eligibility.
