Cognosante Releases New White Paper: Successfully Implementing a Federally Facilitated Exchange

Leading up to November 16 Deadline, Paper Outlines Key "On-Ramp" Strategies for States Opting to Implement the FFE

November 14, 2012 --

MCLEAN, VA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/14/12 -- Cognosante, a leading provider of IT services for healthcare organizations, today released a new white paper, "Successfully Implementing a Federally Facilitated Exchange."

The passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) resulted in significant changes to the ways Americans will access and purchase health insurance. A key feature of ACA, and one that may have the biggest impact on state budgets and personnel, is the requirement for states to decide whether they will connect to the Federally Facilitated Exchange (FFE) or to establish a State-Based Exchange (SBE) by January 1, 2014.

With the November 16, 2012 deadline quickly approaching for states to send the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) declaration letters on whether they will implement a FFE or establish a SBE, Cognosante's latest white paper offers states strategies and key areas of engagement to consider if they choose to implement and operate a FFE.

"While there are still many unknowns, there are a number of steps that states can take now to better prepare for the FFE. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has repeatedly stated it is preparing for 'Day One' FFE implementation, meaning that CMS is working toward critical FFE functionality to be ready by the deadlines. States need to begin preparing now," reads an excerpt from Cognosante's white paper which provides states a check-list of key activities and strategies to consider in implementing a FFE.
