A consultant has told directors of Minnesota’s health insurance exchange that the troubled system has enough horsepower as the fall open enrollment period approaches.
Consultants have told the board that governs Minnesota’s health insurance exchange that there is a lot of work ahead to get ready for open enrollment in November. Brian Keane of Deloitte Consulting gave the MNsure board an initial assessment Wednesday of what needs to be done to fix the troubled system.
The operators of Minnesota’s state-run health exchange say a little more than 200,000 people have signed up for coverage through the exchange.
Minnesota’s online health insurance marketplace announced Deloitte Consulting on Wednesday as the lead manager to overhaul its troubled website and computer systems, citing the company’s record of success in other states. MNsure’s contract with Deloitte is worth $4.95 million and will run for nine months.
