NCI Information Systems, Inc. announced it has won a $112 million prime contract extension from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Under the Comprehensive Error Rate Testing contract, NCI will expand the deployment of artificial intelligence solutions, robotic process automation and machine learning to help advance the agency’s monitoring, measuring and reporting of Medicare Fee-for-Service improper payments.
“As federal agencies continue to embrace artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies, they will become more efficient and enable their workforce to focus on more mission-critical work,” said NCI President and CEO Paul A. Dillahay.
The contract extends NCI’s more than 20-year history of supporting the CERT program.
“We are honored that CMS continues to entrust its CERT program to our team,” Dillahay said. “We’re proud to leverage our broad array of proven AI technology solutions to drive new levels of financial management efficiency and accuracy for this important program.”
With the 5-year contract extension, NCI will expand its capabilities already deployed for the Medicare payment integrity program.
