The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare has awarded Unisys Corporation two seven-year, firm-fixed price contracts to provide systems and operational services as fiscal agent for the state’s Medicaid program.
According to Blue Bell, Pa.-based Unisys, the contracts consist of a two-year system design, development and implementation phase, followed by five years of operations totaling $116.5 million. There is an additional three-year option, exercisable by mutual agreement, worth $51 million.
The company says it will design, develop and implement a state-of-the-art healthcare information management system for Idaho Medicaid. The new system, Health PAS, is a healthcare payer administration solution.
