Indianapolis-based Electronic Data Systems Corp. (EDS), Indiana's Medicaid partner since 1991, has been awarded a $209.9 million, six-and-a-half-year contract to upgrade and continue to maintain the state's Medicaid management information system.
The new contract will leverage EDS' interChange Health System. Among the upgrades are a Web-based tool that will enable healthcare providers to electronically enroll in the Medicaid program, as well as a number of internal processes.
The agreement includes a seven-month phase to design, develop, test and implement the additional features followed by a six-year management term. The contract, which was signed in late December, extends a 16-year relationship between EDS and Indiana.
