Board OKs $43.5M In Contracts On Health Exchange

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The board overseeing Maryland's badly flawed health exchange web site has approved $43.5 million in contracts to facilitate the move to new technology to fix the problems.
    
The Maryland Health Benefit Exchange Board voted Friday for a five-year contract with Xerox totaling $29.3 million to host new technology used in the more successful health exchange web site used in Connecticut.
    
The board also voted for a three-year contract with Deloitte totaling $14.2 million. That contract is for software licenses, both for development and production.
    
Dr. Joshua Sharfstein, the state's health secretary, says the arrangement does not require additional federal grant funding. He says the state plans to support the new system from savings in the existing grant budget and through the Medicaid program.
