MAXIMUS scored an Eligibility Support Services contract with the Texas Health and Human Services Commission.
The three-year base contract is worth $315.3 million, with an option for two additional years.
According to the company, the award consolidates work MAXIMUS performed under two previous contracts: Children’s Health Insurance Program and Eligibility Support Services.
MAXIMUS will continue to provide support services for many of the state’s programs, including Medicaid, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, Children’s Health Insurance and others.
“We are excited to continue to administer these vital programs for the people of Texas under this combined contract,” MAXIMUS CEO Richard Montoni said. “MAXIMUS has partnered with Texas HHSC for more than 10 years, and we are proud of our track record of continuous program improvements and efficiencies. We have helped the state improve access by implementing technological enhancements, such as auto-linked documents, and establishing multichannel access with self-service options, including a user-friendly CHIP website to allow families to renew their coverage easily and quickly. Our more than 1,500 Texas-based employees are proud to continue providing high-quality customer services to their fellow Texans.”
