The US District of Columbia awarded Infosys Public Services, a US-based subsidiary of Infosys, a global consulting and technology leader, a one-year contract valued at $49.5 million to develop its new health benefit exchange, a crucial component of the Affordable Care Act.

Infosys Public Services is the prime systems integrator of this healthcare system transformation that will bring critically important benefits to nearly one quarter million District residents. Individuals, families, and small businesses can purchase healthcare coverage through an online marketplace. The Exchange, known as the District of Columbia Access System (DCAS), is a state-of-the-art health and human services solution that will provide seamless healthcare coverage while minimizing risks.

Program highlights

• As the prime systems integrator, Infosys Public Services is currently designing and implementing the new health benefit exchange, and replacing the District’s legacy Medicaid and eligibility systems with new technology that will provide a wide array of services in compliance with the new healthcare law.

• The District of Columbia and Infosys Public Services have successfully completed a federal review of this web-based Marketplace Exchange portal, which will allow consumers to access, research, and choose affordable health coverage. The District’s Exchange is the first of the nation’s state-based marketplaces to gain federal approval in the second phase or “wave” of required tests.

• The new system will also deliver new case management capabilities that span a wide range of the District’s programs and agencies.

• DCAS will provide the District with an integrated eligibility system supporting Medicaid, private health insurance and other health programs.

• The system includes key capabilities for providing health insurance to the uninsured and underinsured, including:
- managing qualified health plans from insurers
- determining program eligibility
- enabling shopping for qualified health plans for participating insurers
- supporting enrollment in a specific plan, and
- managing billing for premiums, aggregation of payments, and facilitating payments to insurers

• Infosys Public Services partnered with industry leaders and other specialists in key functional areas to bring best-in-class solutions to the District for integrated eligibility, plan management and shopping, billing, aggregation and payment.
