ACS gets Colorado Medicaid renewal

Affiliated Computer Services Inc. of Dallas will continue operating Colorado's Medicaid management information system through a three-year, $67 million contract.

The Colorado Health Care Policy and Financing Department awarded the contract to the Dallas-based technology and outsourcing company.

Under the contract, ACS will continue to provide systems development and maintenance support and modifications. In addition, the company will design, develop and install enhancements to the system.

ACS also will serve as the fiscal agent. Among its fiscal agent duties are processing claims from medical providers, managing pharmacy benefits, running the call center and providing program policy support.

As fiscal agent for the Colorado Medicaid program, ACS processes more than 25 million claims for the state annually. The company has held the contract since 1996.

ACS has about 58,000 employees and had annual sales of $5.3 billion in 2006. The company ranks No. 48 on Washington Technology's 2006 Top 100 list of the largest federal IT contractors. The 2007 Top 100 list is due out May 14.
