Xerox Corp. announced Tuesday a $68 million contact with Florida Health Choices, a company created by the state to improve access to health care.
Under the deal, Xerox will administer the firm’s Insurance Marketplace program, which is designed to give small businesses and eligible individuals more flexibility in finding health care and other services.
With a partner, Xerox is to provide a Web portal and online plan selection tool to give consumers and employers more information when making health insurance selections. It preserves the benefits of employer-sponsored insurance and eases the administrative burden for small businesses, Xerox said.
“We’re designing and supporting programs that increase access to health coverage for consumers,” said Will Saunders, group president for government healthcare solutions at Xerox, in a statement. “The solution we create in Florida will serve citizens and small business owners and help position the state as a leader in establishing a competitive and voluntary health insurance marketplace for small employers.”
Xerox also will provide eligibility determination and enrollment management services for the program, and operate a customer contact center to share information on marketplace offerings, the company said.
Xerox is partnering on the project with California-based Choice Administrators.
