ACS Facilitates Emergency Prescription Assistance Program Now Activated in Southern Louisiana
Date:9/11/2008

DALLAS, Sept. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Affiliated Computer Services, Inc. (NYSE: ACS) today announced that it is facilitating the Emergency Prescription Assistance Program (EPAP), now activated for residents in southern Louisiana in the wake of Hurricane Gustav.

The EPAP program, established by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), processes claims for prescription medication and qualifying medical equipment to individuals without health insurance living in, or evacuated from, declared federal disaster areas. Prescriptions and medical equipment are available through a robust nationwide network of participating pharmacies.

To receive assistance, eligible Louisianans must provide one of the following: a new prescription from a licensed health care practitioner, a current prescription bottle, a prescription phoned in by a licensed health care practitioner or proof of an existing prescription. Claims made between September 2, 2008 and October 2, 2008 are eligible under the EPAP program.

ACS' innovative technology and systems ensures that individuals who qualify for the program get real-time support and can quickly receive assistance.

"A real benefit to the EPAP program is that people who are affected by an emergency have one less thing to worry about when disaster strikes because wherever they are evacuated to, their prescriptions will be readily available," said Tim Conway, senior vice president and managing director of ACS Federal Solutions. "ACS is uniquely positioned to offer such a service and be an operational partner with CMS to deliver on its goal."

Because the EPAP program uses existing channels of how people receive their prescriptions, it is seamless to users and can be instantane
