New technology increases operational efficiency and smooths enrollment process for Minnesotans seeking health coverage
Mountain View, Calif. – Nov. 4, 2019 – GetInsured, a health insurance marketplace platforms provider, partnered with MNsure, Minnesota’s health insurance exchange, and Minnesota IT Services, to upgrade MNsure’s enrollment and back-end record-keeping functionality, as well as improve data transfers between MNsure and insurance carriers. The window to decide on health insurance in Minnesota will close on December 23, 2019.
“GetInsured’s technology upgrade increases operational efficiency and makes it easier for thousands of Minnesotans to find and sign up for health coverage,” said Chini Krishnan, CEO and co-founder of GetInsured. “After a smooth transition, the exchange is benefitting from streamlined operations, enabling MNsure to manage the healthcare enrollments for Minnesotans more effectively.”
There are 122 health plans and seven dental plans currently available on MNsure for plan year 2020. The core functionality put in place by GetInsured includes a comprehensive decision support system, sophisticated back office tools, and an improved online shopping experience. In addition, a new platform provides Minnesotans with quicker enrollment processing and faster access to care – greatly benefiting those seeking coverage for urgent medical needs.
“We’re excited about the service improvements MNsure consumers will see this year,” said Nate Clark, CEO of MNsure. “For Minnesotans seeking to sign up for medical or dental coverage, the transition to GetInsured’s state-based marketplace technology has made the health insurance selection process easier than ever.”
Last year, GetInsured began the first stage of implementing decision support technology for MNsure to help Minnesotans find qualified health insurance plans that match their budget, as well as fit their individual healthcare needs. This included a shopping tool on MNsure.org to preview and compare the various plans ahead of the open enrollment period.
