The company will replace the original 30-year old system just as the state is looking to see an influx of between 400,000 to 500,000 Medicaid enrollees in 2014.
GovWin reports the new system has a proposed cost of $54,891,806, with federal funding covering 90 percent of the cost.
The new MEDS system will work with the state’s children's health insurance program to interface with Alabama's future health insurance exchange.
GovWin reports the system will be built within a service-oriented architecture to meet future exchange interoperability standards.
Recently Deloitte was recognized with a national award from the Center for Digital Government.
North Carolina awarded HP Enterprise Services a $122 million contract extension in February to support that state’s Medicaid program with fiscal agent and business process outsourcing services.
