BurgessGroup Announces Contract Renewal and Software Upgrade by CalOptima

ALEXANDRIA, Va., April 1, 2008 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- BurgessGroup, a leading Medicare-based data and information technology solutions firm, announced today the signing of a three-year contract renewal with CalOptima, a client since June 2005. CalOptima is an Orange County, California-based public agency created by the state of California's Medicaid program, Medi-Cal.

CalOptima is one of five County Organized Health Systems (COHS) in the country, and is authorized by federal law to administer Medi-Cal benefits. Through the efficient use of available state and federal funds and the assessing of needs on a local community basis, CalOptima has the ability to provide its members wider access to healthcare providers.

Under the renewed contract, CalOptima will continue to be a licensed user of the Burgess Reimbursement System (BRS), integrating solutions for Inpatient Hospital (DRG-based) and Home Health provider payments and adding BurgessGroup's automated BRS BatchPricer. BurgessGroup will also continue to provide ongoing technical and Medicare payment policy support and education. Historically, CalOptima has utilized BRS for fee schedule creation, Medicare Advantage claims reimbursement, and provider relations purposes. BRS is the only Medicare-based pricing and analysis software in the industry covering all major prospective payment systems.

"One of the primary reasons we are continuing to work with Burgess is the ease of their tool. It's very user friendly, which is a huge asset for claims processing," stated Cara Chastain, Strategic Communications Manager, CalOptima. "Their BatchPricer solution will allow us the ability to build and improve auto-adjudication of claims."
