CGI Federal Inc. (CGI), a wholly-owned subsidiary of CGI Group, Inc., has partnered with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to redesign and launch Medicare.gov, the U.S. government website for the Medicare program.

The new website lets the current 47 million Medicare beneficiaries and their families more easily navigate the CMS website and access the online presence from mobile devices and tablets, according to a CGI statement,

“Mobility is the new norm,” said Cheryl Campbell, senior vice president for health and compliance programs at CGI. “The way people use technology today has changed the way government delivers citizen services.”

The website was built under a five-year task order awarded in 2010, part of the enterprise system development indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract vehicle.

“The re-launch of Medicare.gov is the first in a series of planned upgrades to CMS’ public-facing websites that will improve user experience and ensure important information is accessible through mobile devices,” said Jon Booth, director, web & new media group, CMS.

“This work aligns CMS with global trends toward mobility and ensuring our customers can find what they are looking for no matter where they are or what device they choose to use,” he added.

The CMS website had more than 27 million unique visitors over the past year and the new website ensures beneficiaries can access critical information such as coverage and cost details with any device that has access to the Internet.
