MAXIMUS was awarded a five-year extension on its Healthy Families contract, which will begin Jan. 1, 2011, and is worth approximately $360.3 million.
MAXIMUS will continue to provide administrative services to give uninsured children access to health, dental and vision coverage. MAXIMUS provides administrative support for publicly funded health insurance programs, including CHIP administration for five states.
“This contract extension reflects our successful partnership with MRMIB in administering the Healthy Families Programs since 2004 and achieving the best CHIP payment error rate measurement in the nation,” said Richard Montoni, MAXIMUS CEO. “We look forward to continuing to support the MRMIB in its mission to safeguard the health of Californians by increasing access to affordable, comprehensive and quality healthcare.”
