Xerox to Process Benefit Claims for 2 Health Cooperatives; Jeff Hechemy Comments

Xerox_LogoXerox has been selected by two state health cooperatives to process benefit claims for health plan holders as part of the government’s healthcare reform initiatives.

Connecticut’s HealthyCT and Wisconsin’s Common Ground Healthcare Cooperative intend to implement health insurance plans for the Consumer Operated and Oriented Plan program, Xerox said Tuesday.

Xerox will use Healthation’s administrative platform to administer claims and manage premium collection and registration with the goal of fulfilling the requirements of the Affordable Care Act.

Jeff Hechemy, group president of healthcare payer and pharmaceutical services at Xerox, said the company works to help consumer groups, membership associations and nonprofit organizations sponsoring the program to operate the health coverage.

Hechemy added Xerox will serve as a third-party administrator for the co-op programs.

States are receiving federal funds to establish the co-op programs.
