Obama Victory Reinforces Need for Insurers to Prepare for Healthcare Exchange 2013 and 2014 DeadlinesNovember 8, 2012 | Industry News Release
With the reelection of President Barack Obama announced yesterday, hCentive, Inc., the leader in post-PPACA healthcare exchange technology, encourages insurers to expedite preparations to achieve compliance with the state exchange requirements as directed by the law.
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA) requires states to implement health exchanges by January 1, 2014, with open enrollment occurring on October 1, 2013. hCentive recommends insurers have functional state exchange integrations by June 2013.
The WebInsure Exchange Manager is a platform that effectively integrates private health plans with PPACA-mandated state exchanges. It offers a significant competitive advantage to health insurers needing to meet aggressive goals and operate more efficiently. The product offers myriad benefits, including automated plan management, enrollment management, financial & enrollment reconciliation, workflow & queue management and correspondence management.
"With Obama's reelection, the requirements for state exchanges under PPACA will remain," Manoj Agarwala, President of Chief Operating Officer of hCentive. "For insurers looking to quickly earn compliance with a large number of state exchanges, the time to market is critical. Insurers need a product that can integrate not only with state exchanges, but also billing, claims, and the federal hub and exchange. Our out-of-the-box WebInsure Exchange Manager product is able to handle the necessary point-to-point connections and complexity that is involved in state exchange integration. We enable companies to stay in compliance and leverage public exchanges as a new sales channel."
