News : Xerox Wins Medicaid Contract
Rochester, NY, USA, April 20, 2015 -- Xerox Corp. will work with New York to update its Medicaid claims processing system, a move that will help manage expanding Medicaid rolls, the company said Monday.
Under a five-year contract with the state Department of Health, Xerox can manage all aspects of Medicaid programs, including the new strategies in population health management, managed care, care coordination and other areas that are needed to meet Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act objectives.
To support the project, Xerox said it will add 400 jobs, including clerical staff, call-center positions, health care professionals and technical positions, in Albany and other New York locations.
"Xerox is giving New York the flexibility to customize our Medicaid program so we can best serve both the people who rely on this system and the health care providers who are on the front lines of caring for them every day," said state Medicaid Director Jason Helgerson, in a statement.
