Government services provider Perspecta Inc. has received a follow-on task order award to continue work on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Virtual Data Center Prime contract to host and improve efficiency of Medicare Part A and Part B Common Working File claims processing.
“As the hosting provider of all four claims processing environments, we appreciate our customers’ confidence in selecting us to perform this follow-on work,” said Bill Lovell, senior vice president and general manager of Perspecta’s health group. “CMS is one of Perspecta’s longest-standing customers and this award is a true testament of our unrelenting innovation and success. We look forward to continuing our partnership with CMS in support of its mission to modernize its systems and processes.”
Under this task order, Perspecta will process Medicare eligibility claims/queries daily from three shared systems, send claims to the Fraud Prevention System for fraud pre-screening and then return CWF responses back to the shared systems with the current Medicare beneficiary eligibility information.
The Perspecta Medicare CWF workload includes the processing for more than 44 million Medicare Fee-For-Service beneficiaries in the U.S. and its territories, representing an average processing volume of 6.5 million claims daily.
The task order has a 1-year base period plus four option years and is valued at $36.4 million. Work on this federal program will be performed in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
