Vet-owned firm lands $15M CMS contract

Data Computer Corporation of America, a veteran-owned IT government consulting firm, has been awarded a five-year, $15 million contract by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

The contract, awarded through the Enterprise Systems Development indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity vehicle, calls for DCCA to provide support for CMS’ Medicare Advantage program reimbursements, according to a Nov. 16 DCCA announcement.

Under the terms of the agreement, the Ellicott City, Md., company will provide analytical and technical services in support of generating and verifying monthly payments to organizations associated with CMS’ Medicare Advantage program.

Medicare Advantage includes health and prescription drug plans offered by approved private insurance companies. CMS provides over $12 billion in monthly payment reimbursements through this program, the announcement said.

DCCA has been supporting CMS’ Medicare Advantage and other Managed Care programs for more than 15 years.

This year, the company completed a legacy system redesign that not only brought CMS’ Plan Payment System software and hardware up-to-date with its technical architecture standards, but also provided a new user interface that helps CMS perform more efficient payment validations and adjustments, the announcement said.
