CRANFORD, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Paragon Solutions, an advisory consulting and systems integration
firm, today released a statement that says it predicts an increase in
information-related projects as health plan firms look to comply with
the new regulations imposed by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The ACA
legislation was upheld yesterday by the Supreme Court in a much-awaited
ruling on the law’s constitutionality.
“No matter which side of the aisle you identify with, we all agree that
the decision to uphold The Affordable Care Act will have a ripple effect
across the healthcare industry," said Michael Cloutier, vice president
and insurance industry leader. “What this legislation means for the
health plan companies is there will be roughly 50 million Americans who
are uninsured today and will have to buy insurance or be faced with
potential fines,” Cloutier said.
Paragon, a firm that specializes in providing consulting to the
healthcare market throughout the U.S., points out that health plan firms
have been holding the reins on spending for initiatives impacted by
regulatory changes until there was a definitive decision on ACA. All
that changed yesterday.
“Healthcare companies will be required to provide ‘dollar one’ coverage
for preventive care and screening, which a number of folks forgo in
today’s co-pay environment. As a result of this added cost, healthcare
companies will continue to look for ways to reduce administrative costs
associated with managed care,” added Richard Pachler, Senior vice
present of Financial Services and Insurance for Paragon.
