Exploring the evolution of insurance exchanges: The final installment
Deltek Analyst Amanda White reports.
Today marks the final day of Deltek’s health care and social services team’s blog series centered on the recently-released report, “Evolving Health Insurance Exchanges.” The report takes a nationwide dive into implementation processes and state statuses in instituting these novel systems. It also provides high-level advice for government contractors for getting ahead in the game. This week’s blog series covered several topics including integrated eligibility, procurement, all-payer claims databases and quality assurance. Here are a few more notable highlights across the states:
District of Columbia: The D.C. Office of Contracting and Procurement, on behalf of the Department of Health Care Finance (DHCF), released a request for task order proposal (RFTOP) on Jan. 17 for the development and design of its insurance exchange. The selected vendor will assist the state in developing a request for information (RFI) to obtain information regarding technology solutions available to support the implementation of the HIX, in addition to developing a request for proposals (RFP) for system implementation. According to DHCF, the RFP statement of work will be due by May 1, 2012. Also, the state recently passed legislation to create the DC Health Benefit Exchange Authority.
Mississippi: The state has been taking a four-phase approach and is currently evaluating proposals received for phase 1 – the Web Portal and Compare Functionality for the HIX. According to the Mississippi Comprehensive Health Insurance Risk Pool Association, the contract is expected to be awarded by the end of this month.
