MNsure board approves extra $3.16M for consultants

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota's health insurance exchange plans to pay another $3.16 million to get more work from a consulting firm that's helping to fix its troubled information technology system.

MNsure awarded a $4.95 million contract this spring to Deloitte Consulting LLP for help in assessing problems with its system plus project management work.

The additional funds approved by the MNsure board Wednesday will pay for improvements to the MNsure website and related systems before most consumers start using it again on Nov. 15.

Officials say the action doesn't raise the overall price tag for MNsure because the funds are coming from $155 million in federal grants. Federal grants also paid for the original $4.95 million contract with Deloitte.
