Under the contract, ACS of Dallas will provide eligibility, enrollment, marketing and member services for the state's Child Health Plan Plus program.

The company also will operate a customer call center, perform marketing and outreach for the program and provide support for community-based organizations in their outreach programs.
More than 48,000 children are enrolled in the Colorado Child Health Plan Plus program. ACS' solution will feature a document imaging system that will improve the efficiency and accuracy of administrative processes, while enhancing customer service for the program, company officials said.
