Palo Alto, Calif.-based HP Enterprise Services today announced it has been awarded a contract worth up to $200 million by the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to provide application services that improve Medicare Part B claims processing as well as the delivery of healthcare services to beneficiaries.

The Medicare Part B Shared System Maintainer contract is for one base year with seven one-year renewal options. Medicare's Multi-Carrier System (MCS) is utilized by CMS' Carriers and Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) to process approximately 750 million Medicare Part B claims annually.

Under the contract, HP will provide applications support and maintenance services, including full development life cycle support for system maintenance and enhancements. HP services will deliver production and user support for the processing of an ever-increasing volume of Medicare Part B claims, as well as MAC transition support.

Additionally, HP will deliver related system maintenance and transition support to the Healthcare Integrated General Ledger Accounting System. This system exchanges data with the MCS for the processing of claim billing information, provider profile information, beneficiary profile information, check reconciliation, payment information, and other claim-related data.
