We are looking for a graduate level intern interested in improving health care access and affordability through digital transformation to join the CoverME team and assist in Maine’s transition from healthcare.gov to its own state-based health insurance marketplace.
This is a full-time, remote internship, with flexible start and end dates (preferred length of internship is at least 75 days)
In August 2019, Governor Janet Mills signed legislation to establish a state-based health care exchange for Maine. This legislation was passed with the aim of increasing the rate of insurance in the State and expanding residents’ access to affordable, quality care.
Implementing the resulting marketplace, CoverME, requires thoughtful coordination across a wide number of governmental, technological, and consumer stakeholders.
CoverME is seeking a motivated and organized individual to work across departments and teams in support of a smooth transition to the state-based marketplace. The Social Impact Project Manager will support implementation for the CoverME marketplace, ensuring milestones are met on-time, and that CoverME delivers an optimal enrollment experience for Maine residents.
In this position, you will:
· Work directly with the Executive Director and the COO of the Office of the Health Insurance Marketplace (OHIM) to ensure accountability for the functionality, stability, and effectiveness of the launch of the marketplace.
· Manage project tasks and issues based on the objectives and requirements for the transition to a state-based marketplace;
· Help create and support processes to better manage project tasks and a system to maintain accurate progress and escalation of high-priority issues.
· Create high level visualizations of project progress with status levels highlighted for respective audiences.
· Perform research and collect and analyze data to make policy and operational decisions for the marketplace.
· Participate in calls with department leaders to collect, report on, and escalate project components and milestones.
· Support the OHIM COO in carrying out critical path workstreams, removing project risks, and engaging stakeholders, as necessary.
