RESTON, Va. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- MAXIMUS (NYSE:MMS), a leading provider of government services worldwide, announced today that it has released a new set of solutions, called DecisionPointTM, to help states navigate the complexities of Medicaid Expansion. The formal debut of these solutions will begin today at the Medicaid Enterprise Systems (MES) Conference in Denver, Colorado.
DecisionPoint combines comprehensive data with proven processes and technology to empower states to make fast, accurate Medicaid program decisions. DecisionPoint is designed to efficiently close information gaps across all subsidy categories at every stage of the Medicaid lifecycle. The DecisionPoint solutions address areas such as program integrity, provider management services, premium assistance, informal dispute resolution, and business intelligence.
“Health care reform brought millions of new beneficiaries into the Medicaid system. States are striving to efficiently and accurately provide health insurance to this influx of people, while complying with a new set of mandates,” said Bruce Caswell, President and General Manager of MAXIMUS Health Services. “In this time of complex challenges, we designed DecisionPoint to arm Medicaid Directors with the tools they need to simplify program management and ensure the right people get the right services, all while maximizing use of taxpayer dollars.”
The catalyst for the rapid growth in Medicaid applicants and beneficiaries is the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The Act includes changes to eligibility requirements, along with increased public awareness that has attracted beneficiaries who were previously eligible, but had not applied. This surge in activity has resulted in large amounts of inaccurate and incomplete member data pouring into legacy state Medicaid systems that were not built to handle today’s increased volumes or updated requirements. To help Medicaid Directors scale to meet current demand and maintain long-term program sustainability, DecisionPoint from MAXIMUS delivers a set of solutions for various stages of the Medicaid lifecycle:
During the Medicaid Enterprise Services Conference this week, MAXIMUS Vice President Pat Aguilar and Dennis Elliott, Director of Provider Services for TennCare, will be sharing their success with the DecisionPoint for Provider Management solution for Tennessee’s Medicaid managed care program. The MAXIMUS exhibit booth will also feature a demo of the DecisionPoint for Program Integrity solution, as well as in-depth information for all five solutions. MAXIMUS experts will be present to discuss how the solutions can help states improve their Medicaid programs.
