Tom Romeo, president of federal services business at Maximus, told USA Today new tools that HHS introduced to the health insurance exchange are similar to those found on online shopping sites.

“They are focused on making the experience more of a parallel to what people expect when they get on an Amazon,“ Romeo said.

“They had a rocky start and they're making improvements.“

Maximus provides Medicare appeals process support and call center services for HealthCare.gov and other state-run health insurance exchanges.
