ACS Signs $27 Million Contract with Alaska to Transition Fiscal Agent Services for State Medicaid Program
Date:10/15/2008

DALLAS, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Affiliated Computer Services, Inc. (NYSE: ACS), today announced the award of a $27 million, 21-month contract for the transition of the Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) for the state of Alaska's Department of Health and Social Services.

Previously in October 2007, ACS signed a $130 million, 10-year contract with Alaska to design, develop, implement and operate a new MMIS system. Now, as part of a separate transition contract, ACS will assume all fiscal agent services included in the state's former MMIS vendor's contract. ACS now will administer claims processing, recipient helpline, pharmacy drug rebate and retrospective drug utilization review, system enhancement, EDI support, pharmacy help desk and preferred drug list services.

"I am extremely pleased with ACS' responsiveness to our needs. The department sees ACS as a strong partner in fulfilling our vision of maintaining access to health care and providing health coverage to Alaskans in need," said Bill Streur, Deputy Commissioner for Alaska's Medicaid and Health Policy. "ACS demonstrates full understanding and joins us in our sense of urgency to improving administration of the medical assistance program, particularly in serving the needs of our residents and the dedicated provider community."

With more than three decades of fiscal agent operations experience, ACS has considerable expertise in transitioning existing vendors' MMIS systems. However, unique in this situation is that the previous vendor's employees also will transition to ACS.

"This contract is recognition by the state of Alaska of ACS' strong commitment to providing quality services and systems for Medicaid programs across the country," said
