The federal government is set to implement the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act on Oct. 1 to start accepting millions of enrollees to the insurance program, The Washington Post reported Sunday.

Sarah Kliff writes the administration needs to stand up infrastructures designed to link the Health and Human Services, Treasury, Homeland Security and other agencies to help transmit information about an applicant’s eligibility.

Kevin Walsh, Xerox senior vice president and managing director, said the company will work on the program implementation and test the integration, The Washington Post reported.

Kliff writes that aside from the infrastructure, the federal government also needs to complete the online portal to enable residents in various states to buy health plans, as well as reach out to these citizens to ensure they visit the marketplace setup for the program.

Enroll America will help the administration educate residents about their health insurance options with a marketing campaign, according to the report.
