Experian Healthcare launches tool to enable providers to identify and help enroll eligible individuals for health insurance exchange (HIX) subsidized programs
Date:9/23/2013

AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Experian Healthcare, a leading provider of revenue cycle products; consultative services; and data for health systems, hospitals and medical groups, today announced the launch of a new tool that helps healthcare providers identify patients who meet the income requirements to receive health insurance exchange (HIX) tax credits and federal subsidies, and assists with the automation of the enrollment process by prepopulating the state's HIX application form.

As part of the Affordable Care Act individual mandate, U.S. citizens and legal residents will be required to have qualifying health coverage starting in 2014. Those who do not have insurance through their employer or through Medicaid or Medicare will have the option to go to a new HIX marketplace in their state to enroll in a private healthcare plan. Open enrollment in the exchanges will last from Oct. 1, 2013, through March 31, 2014; coverage will begin as early as Jan. 1, 2014.

"Medical bills can sometimes be difficult to collect, especially when treating patients with minimal to no health insurance," said Dan Buell, general manager of Experian Healthcare. "As a result, we've developed HIX Screening and Enrollment to support healthcare providers as they assist their patients to obtain adequate medical coverage. By helping patients enroll into the appropriate plans, healthcare organizations will be better positioned to reduce bad debt and create an enhanced patient experience."

Within HIX Screening and Enrollment, healthcare providers can educate patients on their out-of-pocket expenses under their new health plan. With access to secondary tools, such as the subsidy calculator, healthcare providers can enter different income levels, ages and family sizes to estimate the patient's eligibility for subsidies. Additionally, a health benefits comparison chart will enable healthcare providers to go over the patient's health plan benefits from a state's HIX program.
