Softheon Marketplace Connector Cloud Offers Reprieve to Oregon Based Health Plans to Assist with Migration to the Federally-Facilitated Marketplace
STONY BROOK, N.Y. April 25, 2014 – , a proven leader for health insurance marketplace integration and business operation, has announced that Softheon Marketplace Connector (MC2) platform – the platform currently utilized to connect Oregon’s Health CO-OP to Cover Oregon – can assist Oregon-based health plans in their transition to connect to the Federally-Facilitated Marketplace and Federal data hub. This innovative integration platform provides health plan payers the ability to align and have qualified health plans (QHPs) up and running in 30 days, with minimal risk and full PPACA regulatory compliance.
Federal and Cover Oregon Board Officials have announced, today, that the state’s health insurance exchange, Cover Oregon, will be taken over by the Obama Administration. Cover Oregon is the first state to migrate to the Federally-Facilitated Marketplace (FFM). Softheon recognizes the uncertainty this transition has caused for Oregon residents and Oregon-based health plans, alike. To date, approximately 242,000 Oregonians have enrolled in coverage through Cover Oregon, with nearly 70,000 of those enrolled in private health plans – together accounting for approximately 3% of all ACA enrollments.
Having achieved exchange connectivity in 23 FFM operated Exchange states, Softheon is uniquely qualified being the Exchange Integration Partner of more than 40 health plans, several of which are Oregon-based. Remaining at the forefront of Health Insurance Marketplace Integration, Softheon retains in-depth knowledge inclusive of 834 intake and payment reconciliation. Softheon looks forward to the opportunity of working with health plans, Co-Ops and ACOs, of all sizes, in tackling future PPACA challenges and optimizing new healthcare opportunities.
“We chose Softheon because of its excellent track record and well-crafted design,” said Rod Meyer, director of Information Services for CareOregon. “We’re very committed to the success of Oregon’s Health CO-OP and are choosing partners that will help us serve the CO-OP and its members with great care.”
“Having been working with many Insurers in Federally Facilitated Marketplaces across multiple states, as well as Oregon based health plans, Softheon is uniquely qualified and ready to assist all Carriers in Oregon”, stated Eugene Sayan, Softheon Founder & CEO.
