Request for Information overview
The Oregon Health Insurance Marketplace (Marketplace) requested information about an integrated online health insurance marketplace technology platform and associated consumer assistance center. This request was issued as part of a value analysis to determine the cost-effectiveness and feasibility for Oregon of a transition to a fully state-based marketplace. There is no anticipated date for a transition at this time.
Background, timelines, and documents
The request was divided into two parts. Part one was intended to gather information about existing online health insurance marketplace platforms that are currently in use by at least one state-based marketplace (SBM). Information on systems whose real-world operability has not been proven was neither requested nor desired.
Part two was intended to gather information about consumer-assistance solutions (including call centers) for state-based marketplaces. A high level of integration and interoperability with the health insurance marketplace platform was desired, but direct affiliation/integration with the health insurance exchange platform was not required.
Respondents were invited to provide information in response to one or both parts of this request.
