CORMAC as a Team member of Booz Allen Hamilton, has been awarded a contract by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to become the Marketplace System Integrator (MSI).  The MSI program covers system integration, release management, and environment management activities, as well as facilitating communication and participating in the change control process for Marketplace environments. The Marketplace is the primary implementation of the ACA and is a complex “system of systems” built and supported by many contractors with interfaces to several other Federal Agencies and all 50 states. The Federally Facilitated Marketplace (FFM) and State Based Marketplaces (SBM), known as the Health Insurance Marketplace systems, were established through the ACA in 2010 and began operations on October 1, 2013. These Marketplaces allow individuals and small business employers to shop for and compare competitive private health insurance options, known as Qualified Health Plans (QHP), on the basis of price, quality, and other factors.
