The outcome of the 2012 presidential election eliminated many of the immediate uncertainties surrounding implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA)– and the state health insurance exchanges that are integral to expanding access to coverage under the law. For HealthPlan Services (HPS), President Obama’s victory and the Democrat’s retention of Senate control means the gamble we took pushing forward with an exchange solution, despite nagging industry uncertainty, will ultimately pay off for our clients.
Exchange deadlines are rapidly approaching. Carriers are under enormous pressure to build the technical infrastructures and put in place the administrative processes necessary connect, recruit, manage and retain customers acquired through state exchanges.
While other organizations waited in the wings, HPS focused on eliminating barriers to entry into the potentially lucrative exchange market. We deployed our IT resources and industry expertise to create a toolset and playbook that allows carriers to quickly ramp up state exchange operations. The end result is our Go-To-Exchange™ strategy, an innovative platform that provides comprehensive management of the administrative and technical needs of health plans participating in state exchanges, speeding deployment and reducing costs.
The Go-To-Exchange technology framework provides carriers with an end-to-end solution that combines proven technology and business processes. It leverages industry best practices and advanced web-based technologies to deliver a scalable, powerful platform that integrates seamlessly with state exchanges and provides comprehensive management of health plans’ administrative and technical needs.
But we didn’t stop there. We also have established relationships with other strategic partners that, if needed, will help ensure rapid ramp-up and response to the sharp volume fluctuations many anticipate when exchanges open on October 1, 2013.
By working with a qualified partner like HPS, even those carriers that have delayed exchange planning won’t be left on the sidelines. Our Go-To-Exchange strategy lets them launch quickly, effectively and compliantly—regardless of how many states they have targeted for exchange participation.
