CNSI won a $185 million contract develop and implement Louisiana’s new Medicaid management information system by the end of 2014, CNSI announced Thursday.
The state selected the Gaithersburg, Md.-based information technology firm in June 2011 to replace the state’s current system and fiscal agent operations.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services approved the contract in early February and Maryland’s Division of Administration executed the contract on Feb. 27.
The contract contains a 36-month development and implementation period for the new Medicaid platform and the company will also maintain systems operations.
CNSI will incorporate provider re-enrollment and outreach during the system’s development process.
The new system will include a call center to provide Medicaid enrollees with access to a complete view of healthcare services.
The Medicaid portal will be a public website for communicating with providers through bulletins, frequently asked questions, contact information, Medicaid program and policy information and upcoming events.
Noridian Administrative Services and Magellan Medicaid Administration Inc. are partnering with CNSI provide administrative and healthcare operations and pharmacy benefit administration support.
Maryland approved a potential $297 million contract with CSC in February to operate that state’s system of managing Medicaid claims and patients.
That contract has five base years and three two-year options.
