HP Enterprise Services has signed a five-year, $176 million services agreement with the Nevada Division of Health Care Financing and Policy to provide IT and management support to the state's Medicaid program. HP also will serve as the Nevada program's fiscal agent.
Under the agreement, HP is expected to enhance service delivery to Medicaid clients, improve staff productivity, detect Medicaid fraud, perform prior authorization and utilization management, and help providers improve the quality of care.
Nevada's Medicaid agency provides benefits to almost 300,000 people and processes about 12 million claims per year.
Including Nevada's program, 22 Medicaid programs contract with HP for various services. The relationships with some of these programs were initiated years ago by EDS, which HP acquired in 2008.
Recently, HP announced a new agreement with the Texas Medicaid program. Under that $30 million, 52-month contract, HP will provide an electronic health history for all Medicaid recipients and will provide web-based tools to streamline provider interaction and increase access to health information.
