HealthPlan Services Affirms its Strategy to Support Health Insurance Exchanges
TAMPA, Fla., June 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthPlan Services (HPS), the nation's leading technology and administrative services provider for the insurance and managed care markets, affirms its Go-To-Exchange strategy in the wake of today's Supreme Court ruling upholding the entire Affordable Care Act (ACA).
Go-To-Exchange provides comprehensive management of the administrative and technical needs of health plans participating in state exchanges. A critical technology component is ExchangeLink, which facilitates the technical connections necessary to link carriers to exchanges.
"HPS has been actively engaged with industry groups and State and Federal agencies to stay informed on the technology needs required for exchange connections. HPS will now move forward to complete the integration necessary to successfully administer the new members that purchase health insurance via the public exchanges," said HPS Senior Vice President of Healthcare Reform Dennis Prysner.
"Our early actions and development of thought leadership around the complexities of exchange integration and QHP administration have positioned us as a leader in reform readiness. We look forward to working with our healthcare carrier partners as we prepare for open enrollment on Oct. 1, 2013," said Jeff Bak, HPS President and CEO.
