Date:10/29/2007

Informed Health Navigator(TM) unveiled at the World Research Group

Healthcare Management Conference in Chicago

DALLAS, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Affiliated Computer Services, Inc. (ACS) today launched Informed Health Navigator(TM) to help large employers meet the changing healthcare needs of retirees, including millions of Baby Boomers about to enter their retirement years.

Informed Health Navigator is an innovative product that analyzes retirees' medical and drug claims, identifies Medicare enrollment options, and makes plan recommendations, said Will Saunders, ACS senior vice president. Saunders introduced the product at the World Research Group Healthcare Management Conference, held Oct. 29-30 in Chicago.

"Informed Health Navigator has the potential to reduce contributions and lower out-of-pocket expenses for members, and lower overall costs to plan sponsors," said Saunders. "Retiree healthcare costs make corporations less competitive in a global market, and Informed Health Navigator provides companies a solution once they have made the decision to change retirement benefit structures."

Informed Health Navigator helps plan administrators and retirees navigate extremely wide-ranging and complex healthcare choices. The product supports retiree health plan sponsors in managing competing Medicare plan options. It provides retirees personalized information about the plans available in their geographic area and how they compare with the retiree's specific medical and drug utilization, and helps them select the most cost-effective plans for their needs. Informed Health Navigator also offers access to a customer care center with trained representatives who can assist the retiree in making healthcare decisions.
