HIX Set to Go Live October 1st

Date: August 8, 2013||   0  Comments

Health insurance exchanges (HIX), the online marketplaces for consumers seeking to evaluate and purchase health plans, are on target to make their October 1st roll out date, according to a recent update from HHS Secretary Katherine Sebelius.

“We are on target and ready to flip the switch on Oct. 1,” Sebelius said at a recent press conference.

The federal budget sequester cut $15.5 billion from the budget of Health and Human Services, and Sebelius lamented the lack of outreach funding to raise awareness for consumers.

Outreach efforts are currently focused on rebranding the “exchanges” as “marketplaces,” in hopes to find terminology that better resonates with the general public.
