Health Insurance Exchange Solutions

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) establishes health insurance exchanges as state-based entities that create a more organized, competitive and accessible health insurance market  for individual consumers and small businesses. Exchanges offer a choice of plans and establish common rules regarding the offering and pricing of insurance. They also provide information to help consumers better understand the options available so they can choose the best plan for them and their families.

Leveraging Your State’s Existing Infrastructure

As your state’s programs have grown, you’ve continually improved the operational functions and invested in critical technology.
