MAXIMUS Awarded Contract For Minnesota Health Insurance Exchange

MAXIMUS (NYSE: MMS), a leading provider of government services worldwide, today announced that it has been awarded a $41 million contract by the State of Minnesota to design and develop the technical solution, including a consumer-friendly website, for Minnesota’s statewide health insurance exchange and Medicaid modernization. Following a competitive bid process, MAXIMUS was selected as the prime contractor to design and develop the Minnesota health insurance exchange, and to deliver major technology improvements to Minnesota’s Medicaid systems to provide streamlined eligibility determinations, enhance customer service, allow for timely eligibility changes, and promote ongoing program integrity.

As the prime contractor, MAXIMUS will lead a team of specialized technology firms in designing and developing the Minnesota health insurance exchange, which will establish a consumer-friendly website for the state’s population, enabling Minnesotans to determine their eligibility for subsidized health insurance benefits online, as well as shop, compare and enroll in health insurance plans, with access to dedicated customer support along the way. MAXIMUS will have responsibility for managing the project, serving as the client liaison, documenting all business requirements, overseeing integration testing, developing an array of reports for the exchange, and delivering an exceptional customer service experience for users of the system.

The Minnesota health insurance exchange development will include the deployment of StateAdvantage, a complete health insurance exchange solution developed through an alliance between Connecture, Inc. and MAXIMUS. Other MAXIMUS subcontractors include IBM, utilizing the IBM Curam solution for healthcare reform, and EngagePoint (formerly known as Consumer Health Technologies).

“This contract is a significant milestone in the design and development of a Minnesota health insurance exchange,” said Commerce Commissioner Mike Rothman. “We can now move forward on developing the technology backbone of the exchange, a user-friendly tool that will help more than 1.2 million Minnesotans choose the quality coverage they need at a price they can afford.”
