Indiana awards Medicaid work to EDS

Electronic Data Systems Corp. won an $83 million, three-year contract from the Indiana Medicaid Policy and Planning Office to continue processing health care provider claims and expedite other Medicaid services, the company said Monday.

The contract extends a 12-year relationship between EDS and the Indiana Medicaid office, which provides more than $4 billion in medical services a year to 750,000 low-income people.

Indiana's Medicaid Management Information System, known as interChange MMIS, processes more than 45 million claims from providers each year. It integrates policy changes while administering multiple health care plans, including Indiana's Children's Health Insurance Program.

The Indiana network processes claims in less than four days and issues weekly payments to more than 30,000 enrolled doctors, nurse practitioners, hospitals, nursing homes and other health care providers.

"EDS has provided Indiana with the technology, people and processes necessary to help us provide quality health care while reducing administrative costs to our taxpayers," said Melanie Bella, Indiana's Medicaid program director. Alabama and California also awarded continuing multiyear Medicaid services contracts to EDS this year.

EDS of Plano, Texas, performs all claims processing, provider enrollment, provider and member relations, managed care, financial management, data center management and technical support. Employees also stay in contact with beneficiaries and health care providers through help desks, training seminars, onsite visits and Web functions.
