New MMIS for Washington

The Washington Social and Health Services Department's Medical Assistance Administration is considering a new Medicaid management information system. Affiliated Computer Services Inc. of Dallas operates the current system. The company first won the work in 1982 and serves as the fiscal agent responsible for operation and maintenance of the MMIS mainframe claims processing operation.

The system has been modified several times over the years, and this has caused challenges with its continued use. These include increasing cost, increasing time to test systems, data not being relationally stored, payment data being stored in several systems, and poor ability to interface with other systems. The state wants to award a new contract by the end of the year. An RFI is expected in April and an RFP in July.
