Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont (BCBS of VT) has chosen Edifecs Inc., a health care information management and compliance technology company, as its technology integration partner. The partnership is in anticipation for preparing to integrate with Vermont Health Connect, the state’s health insurance exchange (HIX).

Edifecs says that, beginning in October 2013, more than 100,000 Vermont residents, individuals and small groups with 50 or fewer employees will be required to transition to Vermont Health Connect for their health care. Health insurance exchanges are mandated as part of the Affordable Care Act.

BCBS of VT is deploying the Edifecs HIX Integration Solution, a hosted solution that integrates member enrollment and billing transactions among insurers, state health insurance exchanges and the federal government, says Edifecs. This reduces the implementation and operational risk of participating on an HIX.
