Mahindra Satyam Announces HealthConnection™ -- A Rapidly Deployable Health Insurance Exchange for State Governments

Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) Solution Meets U.S. Affordable Care Act Requirements for January 1, 2014 Deployment

PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwire - Sep 10, 2012) - Mahindra Satyam, a leading global consulting and IT services provider, today announced the launch of HealthConnection™, a health insurance exchange (HIX) solution that complies with U.S. Affordable Care Act requirements for establishing health insurance exchanges for businesses, employers and individuals by the January 1, 2014 deadline. Designed to scale for states with small, medium or large populations, HealthConnection™ incorporates "solution accelerators" -- automated tools to help plan and deploy rollouts -- for key components including enrollment, plan comparison, and premium billing both for the individual market and Small Business Health Options Program (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. HealthConnection enables government agencies to:

  • Focus efforts on helping citizens rather than technical complexities of implementation
  • Provide an easy-to-use self-service portal and a multi-channel system that enable citizens to choose the right plan for individual situations
  • Allow for rules-based eligibility determination and verification of data using interfaces to other state systems and federal data hub services
  • Implement a "No Wrong Door" system -- a virtual single point of access for users -- via a secure electronic interface that connects eligibility systems for disparate programs and directs individuals to the appropriate "door" based on income
  • Use extensive reporting features to meet evolving standards and ACA reporting requirements
  • Build extensions to call center operations, document management and output management.

"With the Supreme Court ruling in the summer, 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," said Arvind Malhotra, Senior Vice President, Strategic Accounts, Mahindra Satyam. "By partnering with industry-leading software and solution vendors, we've developed a low-risk, robust approach to implement an exchange."
