N.Y. Health Dept. signs $351 million deal with CSC for Medicaid system

The New York Health Department has signed a six-year, $351 million contract with Computer Sciences Corp. to revamp the state's Medicaid services system.

Company will build the Replacement Medicaid System. For the RMS project, CSC will deliver four things:

•'A 7T data warehouse to hold information about the 230 million claims the state processes annually

•'New software to handle claims processing, payment and reporting, which the Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) now handles

•'An electronic eligibility verification system to let medical providers verify Medicaid eligibility, accept claims electronically, let pharmacies check for potential drug interactions and speed preauthorizations

•'Internet-accessible versions of the state's provider manuals.

CSC, which has held two other Medicaid services contracts with New York, currently runs MMIS and will continue to do so until RMS is complete.

Subcontractors include Bull HN Information Systems Inc. of Billerica, Mass., for data warehouse services and Consultec Inc. of Atlanta for development assistance using the company's advanced database architecture.
