HIT: EDS wins Fla. Medicaid contract

EDS said it has been awarded a $253 million contract to develop and manage a new system for Florida's Medicaid program. The news follows the announcement earlier in the week that the company had signed a similar deal with Oklahoma. The news shows that EDS is continuing to maintain its core healthcare business, processing claims and providing technology support for state Medicaid programs. It also has significant business as a technology sub-contractor for several Blues and regional Medicare processors.
