MAXIMUS has won a $36 million contract to operate a contact center for Maryland’s Health Benefit Exchange over four years.
Maryland intends for the center to help Health Connection customers explore health insurance plans, compare rates, and determine their eligibility for benefits, Maximus said Friday.
“This latest contract award is part of our growing portfolio of work related to the Affordable Care Act, which includes our selection as the vendor of choice to support state health insurance marketplaces in Minnesota, New York, Connecticut, Vermont and Hawaii,” said Richard Montoni, MAXIMUS president and CEO.
MAXIMUS will work to provide customers information on health insurance plans, rates, tax credit eligibility, public assistance programs and cost sharing reductions.
The company will also serve as the enrollment broker for Maryland’s Medicaid program and Maryland Children’s Health program.
