Xerox wins $72M Nevada health exchange contract

Xerox Corp. has won a $72 million contract with the state of Nevada to design and implement a health insurance exchange and help the state meet federal deadlines under the Affordable Care Act.

“The exchange we’re designing in Nevada uses proven solutions from the commercial marketplace and will create a more consumer-friendly experience, similar to comparison shopping that is so common with other online purchases,” said Will Saunders, group president, Government Healthcare Solutions, Xerox

The company’s exchange solution is cloud-based, and will provide an online portal for individuals and small businesses to compare and purchase health plans. Xerox will also manage a customer contact center to share information with participants about the price and quality of health services, the company said.

“There is very little margin for error in getting an exchange fully operational by 2014 and self-sustainable by 2015,” said Jon Hager, executive director, Silver State Health Insurance Exchange. "The Xerox service gives Nevada the flexibility to maintain control over our exchange and our insurance market and build in customizations without sacrificing timeliness."
