Hyderabad: IT service provider Mahindra Satyam on Tuesday announced the launch of 'HealthConnection', a health insurance exchange (HIX) solution that complies with US Affordable Care Act requirements for establishing health insurance exchanges for businesses, employers and individuals by January 1, 2014 deadline.
According to a release issued by MSat, HealthConnection incorporates "solution accelerators" automated tools to help plan and deploy rollouts for key components.
This includes enrollment, plan comparison, and premium billing both for the individual market and Small Business Health Options Programme (SHOP) to ease implementation.
HealthConnection is based on proven components from hCentive's WebInsure state platform and CSC's Premium Billing System 360?SM with a consumer-centric focus to ease the insurance purchasing process from both agency and consumer points of view, it said.
HealthConnection enables government agencies to focus efforts on helping citizens rather than technical complexities of implementation and provide an easy-to-use self-service portal and a multi-channel system that enable citizens to choose the right plan for individual situations.
Arvind Malhotra, Senior Vice President, Strategic Accounts, Mahindra Satyam, said with the US Supreme Court ruling, the race is on to build state-wide health insurance exchanges by the deadline.
"HealthConnection allows government agencies to rapidly and reliably meet ACA requirements with the flexibility to adjust to evolving federal requirements. By partnering with industry-leading software and solution vendors, we have developed a low-risk, robust approach to implement an exchange," Malhotra added.
