Maximus inks Massachusetts Medicaid services deal

Maximus Inc. won a four-year, $72 million contract from Massachusetts to provide a full range of customer services for the state's Medicaid program, the company announced today.

The contract contains options which, if exercised, would raise the total value to $168 million over 10 years.

Under the contract, Maximus of Reston, Va., will operate a contact center, enroll managed-care members and obtain transportation authorization. The company also will process provider claims, enroll and credential providers, and create and maintain self-service options for providers and members through the Internet.

The project will shift providers to a paperless, Web-based environment that is compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.

The MassHealth program, as the state's Medicaid program is known, provides comprehensive health insurance or help in paying for private health insurance to nearly 1 million residents through Medicaid, state children's health insurance program and other state funded health initiatives.

Maximus' team includes EDS Corp. of Plano, Texas, and Vecna Technologies Inc., of College Park, Md.

Maximus has more than 5,100 employees and annual sales of $603.8 million.
