Government services provider MAXIMUS has been awarded a contract from the Office of Personnel Management for the Federal Annuitant Health Benefits Open Season Services, which allows federal annuitants and their eligible dependents to make changes to their health, vision and dental insurance benefits.
The contract is for one year, with four 1-year options, and is valued at $13 million for the total contract period.
The company is excited to continue its 35-year partnership helping OPM in supporting federal retirees, said MAXIMUS President and CEO Bruce Caswell.
“Federal employees, retirees and their dependents will benefit from our intelligent assistant solution which simplifies and streamlines the customer experience,” he said. “We’re pleased to provide a critical step forward in ensuring these citizens quickly and effectively receive the benefits and services they deserve.”
The award enables MAXIMUS to continue its long-term support of OPM’s Retirement and Insurance Services. MAXIMUS will support OPM’s ability to provide federal annuitants and their dependents, who are of retirement age and those with medical disabilities, the opportunity to change their health, vision and dental insurance benefits enrollments via an online enrollment portal, over the phone or via paper enrollment form.
