HP Enterprise Services has signed a three-year $172 million renewal extension contract with the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration to manage the state's Medicaid management information system.
HP will help the state transition to a managed care environment and keep a lid on costs in its preparation for pending program changes. This includes implementing federal HIPAA 5010 requirements and supporting the move to ICD-10 procedure coding.
The agreement extends HP's contract through June 2016. The company has supported the agency since 2008.
“As a state with one of the largest and most complex Medicaid programs, Florida needs the flexibility to address future issues including increases in demand and regulatory changes without service interruptions,“ said Susan Arthur, vice president of U.S. healthcare industry at HP Enterprise Services. “HP built and manages a system for Florida based on the most advanced and proven technology to streamline Medicaid procedures while providing the state with vital information about health care trends and the medical needs of Florida's Medicaid beneficiaries.“
