CGI Wins $53M to Construct Online Marketplace for Hawaii’s HIX; Pete Ihrig Comments

CGI_logoCGI Group Inc. has won a $53 million contract from the Hawaii Health Connector to construct the online marketplace for its state-based health insurance exchange, according to a company statement.

“The Connector’s goal is to link Hawaii’s people, particularly individuals and small businesses, with access to affordable health care coverage,” said Rose Hughes, Connector director of communications.

“To do that, the Connector requires a sophisticated system that lays out the health benefits, choices and costs available and is easy to understand and navigate,” she added.

Under the four-year contract, CGI will lead a team of 50 plus locally based information technology professionals in Hawaii, including local Hawaii-based partners that will construct and maintain the online marketplace and associated financial and plan management systems for Hawaii’s exchange.

Pete Ihrig, CGI senior vice president and general manager, said CGI’s work experience with Massachusetts and Utah, other states and the federally facilitated exchange gives the company an understanding of the Affordable Care Act program and state requirements.

CGI is doing exchange implementation work for California, Colorado, Kentucky, Massachusetts and Vermont.

The company has also partnered with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to develop and implement the Federally Facilitated Exchange.
