Orange-based CHOICE Administrators is partnering with Social Interest Solutions to provide a comprehensive Web-based health-care coverage portal for consumers, employers and brokers.

CHOICE, a leader in developing and administering health insurance exchanges, currently serves more than 10,000 employers and 150,000 members. Social Interest Solutions – or SIS – is a Northern California-based nonprofit that helps connect consumers with appropriate federal and state social service programs through its online program.

“The common connection between CHOICE Administrators and SIS is that we each bring proven, currently operational systems to the relationship,” said CHOICE President Ron Goldstein. “That eliminates guesswork, trial and error, and wasted resources. As states look for efficient ways to organize, market and operate their exchange as mandated by Congress, we can offer state governments a turnkey solution that is flexible and configurable to a specific state and backed by an unmatched track record of success.”

The 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requires states that establish a health insurance exchange by January 1, 2014, or default to a federal fallback program. The exchanges are a key element of health-care reform because they could potentially create more efficient markets, provide for coverage to the uninsured and achieve a more value-based approach to purchasing of health insurance.

Readers Feedback:

Should employees get healthcare through employers or should employers help them get it through the state exchange? http://www.healthcaretownhall.com/?p=3416
