Maryland Picks Optum for Health Care Portal; Matt Stearns Comments

healthcare itOptum has won a $4 million project to help the Maryland state government update its health care exchange, MedCity News reported Sunday.

Group spokesman Matt Stearns told the publication the two-month project involves performance and stability upgrades on the Marylandhealthconnection.gov website.

Meredith Cohn writes the Columbia-based company is a subsidiary of UnitedHealth Group, the same corporate parent of an insurer who sells policies under the Affordable Care Act.

Stearns also said that Optum/QSSI is a separate operation from the insurance firm.

“Optum/QSSI is not involved in any policy determination or judgment related to the site or the exchange. It is a distinct free-standing health services business.”
