Xerox has won a $72 million contract from the state of Nevada to design and implement a Health Insurance Exchange, allowing the state to meet the Affordable Care Act deadlines.

“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 of Government Healthcare Solutions at Xerox.

Xerox’s cloud-based HIX Solution Suite is expected to provide an online portal where individuals and small businesses can compare and purchase health plans.

“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.

Hager added that Xerox’s solution will allow Nevada to control and customize its HIX and insurance market without sacrificing timeliness.

Xerox is also tasked with providing customer service to participants inquiring about the price and quality of health services.
