The Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services has agreed to issue Reston-based MAXIMUS Inc. a follow-on contract to provide education and enrollment services, the company said earlier today.
MAXIMUS will continue to provide call center operations in Richmond, Va. for the Virginia Managed Care Program, under the terms of the three-year base contract. The company will also develop and maintain a Virginia Managed Care website to assist and educate consumers about their health care options.
“The Virginia Managed Care Program provides critical medical services to the Commonwealth’s most vulnerable populations,” stated Susan Offie, Contract Monitor for the Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services. “Our partnership with MAXIMUS allows us to continue to improve the efficiency, quality and access to care for our Medicaid recipients.”
There are nearly 525,000 residents in the Commonwealth eligible for Medicaid. According to the company, MAXIMUS administers a greater number of Medicaid managed care enrollment services projects than any other vendor, with operations in thirteen states.
“We are delighted to continue providing key enrollment broker and education services to Virginia residents through this long-standing program,” MAXIMUS CEO Richard Montoni, said in a statement issued by the company this morning. “Over the past six years, we have completed over 225,000 enrollments in our home state of Virginia through this highly successful public-private partnership.”
Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
