Infosys Public Services, a U.S.-based subsidiary of Infosys, today announced that it has successfully implemented a premium billing and payments solution for L.A. Care Health Plan, the largest publicly operated health plan in the U.S. serving more than 1.6 million members. This solution will help improve access to health benefits for 24,000 members on its L.A. Care Covered™ plan offered through the Covered California health insurance marketplace.
Infosys Public Services implemented Benaissance® ExchangePointSM financial management platform to simplify the user experience. It also integrated the new system with L.A. Care’s existing TriZetto® QNXT™ application to enable smooth data exchange. The solution modernizes L.A. Care’s billing and payment processes to better serve members in the Los Angeles community. It ensures easier access to subsidized health benefits that are offered through Covered California, under the Affordable Care Act.
• As part of the project, Infosys Public Services implemented key business functions including Invoicing, Member Effectuation, Payment Collections, Member Outreach, Grace Period Handling for Advanced Premium Tax Credit (APTC) and non-APTC members
• The solution was implemented in a stringent 12-week timeframe. Infosys Public Services pooled its state marketplace experience, premium billing and payment functions expertise, and its knowledge on Benaissance® ExchangePointSM and TriZetto® QNXT™ platforms to achieve these results. The accelerated rollout enabled L.A. Care to comply with the California state timeline for member renewals and open enrollment for 2015
• By employing an iterative data migration approach for go-live, Infosys Public Services helped L.A. Care avoid business discontinuity and disruption due to the system switchover
