Vienna, Va. - June 19, 2017 – Solutions By Design II, LLC (SBD) is pleased to announce it was awarded a task order to support the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight (CCIIO) Health Insurance Oversight System Portal (HIOS).

The complex, tightly integrated set of application modules continues to evolve as new provisions of the Affordable Care Act are implemented. SBD supports the comprehensive design, development, test, and implementation of new functionality and required enhancements for the HIOS system. Today, the systems that SBD manages for CMS support 22,085 active users, data from 6,090 issuers and 11,064 Health Plan Identifiers (HPID).
"As the FFM evolves in support of the Affordable Care Act with significant increases in volume of users, data and submissions, CCIIO is facing increased pressure to expand the capabilities and scope of HIOS to meet the growing needs of its many stakeholders," said Doug Brown, Vice President, Solutions By Design II, LLC. "SBD is pleased to support CCIIO and committed to producing transformative, agile, cost-effective, interoperable, and seamless system results."
SBD has supported HIOS since 2015. The contract is for a five-year period of performance ending in April 2020. SBD continues to mix our deep customer expertise with innovative, high-quality, and value-driven solutions enabling CMS to focus on their very important mission.
