​State health agencies are facing enormous pressure to improve upon their existing health care delivery system, while being mindful of budget constraints, new regulations, and increased transparency. As part of the complex, challenging, multi-faceted health care ecosystem, states play an integral role as both enabler and overseer in care quality and delivery. With more than 35 years of experience in assisting state health and human services agencies in 44 states, Deloitte understands how delivery works—and how it can work better. Our State Health team offers industry-leading insights, solutions, and business practices to help state health agencies solve their most difficult challenges, ranging from modernization of eligibility determination systems and compliance with Federal Health Insurance Exchange requirements to innovative Medicaid tools and services that can help states serve their constituents more effectively.

State Health Insurance Exchanges

The end of the 2014 health insurance exchange (HIX) open enrollment season represented a major milestone in the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. For the first time, individuals could purchase health insurance through federally-facilitated or state-based HIXs. What do stakeholders need to consider as they look to the 2015 HIX season and beyond? What steps should health care providers, health plans, public sector agencies, and other health care stakeholders consider to succeed in a consumer-centric market? Deloitte is a national leader in implementing HIX solutions and providing related services. Deloitte offers end-to-end solutions that span design, development, implementation, operations, and advisory services.
