The Tennessee Bureau of TennCare intends to award Affiliated Computer Services (ACS) a $156 million contract for the TennCare Management Information System (TCMIS). The proposed contract has a length of five years and must be negotiated and executed prior to ACS commencing operations.
The proposed contract calls for ACS to assume responsibility for the current TCMIS used by the state for the management of its Medicaid program. In addition to the takeover, ACS will be responsible for data management, as well as ongoing systems modifications and day-to-day operations. ACS currently supports Medicaid programs in 13 states and Washington, D.C., in addition to the proposed contract with Tennessee.
ACS will also assess current TennCare business processes and collaboratively work with TennCare in making business process improvement recommendations. Additionally, ACS will perform multiple enhancement projects, including the development of an enterprise Project Management Office and several other projects that will enable TennCare to leverage technology in the most effective manner.
