Illinois SBM Project Management Services

The Illinois Department of Insurance (IDOI) is soliciting proposals to select a Contractor to provide Project Management (PM) services to support implementation planning for the development of a State Based Marketplace (SBM) in Illinois. Illinois Public Act 101-0649 required the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services, in consultation with IDOI, to oversee a feasibility study that explored policy options to make health insurance more affordable and accessible for low- and middle-income residents. The development of an Illinois specific state-based exchange was one of the feasibility studies recommendations. As a result of P.A. 103-0103, Illinois is transitioning from a Federally Facilitated Marketplace for Plan Year 2024 to an SBM-Federal Platform for Plan Year 2025 to an SBM by Plan Year 2026. This initiative is new to Illinois, and this procurement will solicit the experience and expertise of a contractor that has previously worked in this space.
