CGI builds better billing system for buckeye state

The Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation has awarded CGI Group Inc. a seven-year, $52 million contract to replace the bureau's current claims and billing systems.

Under the award, which includes an initial two-year performance period and seven one-year renewal options, CGI will deliver a new integrated technology solution for claims, policy management and billing.

CGI will replace the bureau’s aging application portfolio, disparate systems and limited automation with a modern, integrated technology with enterprisewide functionality, including user self-service, collaboration and notification tools, and reporting to better support the bureau's constituents, a May 2 company announcement said.

Last year, the bureau managed 1.2 million open claims, funded by assets totaling $26 billion, according to the announcement.

Employers in Ohio will benefit from access to accurate and real-time data in addition to more efficient claims and billing processing.

“BWC was impressed with CGI’s successful track record of delivering large-scale, complex projects in the state of Ohio and across the nation on time and on budget,” said Steve Buehrer, administrator/ and CEO for the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation.

CGI Group Inc., of Montreal, Que., ranks No. 41 on Washington Technology’s 2011 Top 100 list of the largest federal government contractors.
