Rockville, MD – October 2, 2018 – CNSI, a leading business solutions provider with vast experience developing and delivering innovative health care management technology, announced today that it has been awarded a three-year, $16.4 million contract by the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System Administration (AHCCCS).

CNSI’s scope of work includes developing a system for Arizona to consolidate multiple provider enrollment applications currently in use into a single enrollment process that electronically collects and processes information needed to support provider screening, enrollment, verification and registration. Under the contract, CNSI will work to streamline and reduce the burden of the enrollment process for providers to ensure compliance with Medicaid requirements for program participation.

Currently, AHCCCS provides coverage to approximately 1.9 million members in Arizona and has more than 70,000 active providers in Arizona.

“Over the last decade, CNSI has consistently developed cutting-edge health IT solutions that substantially improve efficiencies at the state and federal level,” said Sharif Hussein, CNSI Chief Strategy Officer and President HHS. “We are thrilled to work with the state of Arizona to modernize their systems to the benefit of providers and patients alike.”

By developing this new system, CNSI will help AHCCCS begin the process of updating a 30-year-old Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) through modular system development and integration. CNSI previously developed a similar MMIS shared between Michigan and Illinois. The initial term of the contract will be for three years, with two one-year options to extend.

“Since developing the nation’s first completely automated real-time and cloud-based MMIS in Michigan, we have been expanding our partnerships with states to increase efficiency, reduce costs, and improve health care delivery to millions of Americans,” added Hussein. “We look forward to leveraging our strong domain expertise, unparalleled experience, and world-class team to help Arizona do just that.”
