The CMS has awarded General Dynamics Information Technology, a business unit of Fairfax, Va.-based General Dynamics Corp., a claims-processing contract worth up to $95 million.
General Dynamics wins CMS contract
General Dynamics IT will provide software services to support the CMS' durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics and supplies claims system, according to a news release from the company. General Dynamics will issue software releases quarterly in response to CMS mandates, according to the release. The contract's ceiling value of $95 million will be reached if all options are exercised over five years.
In February, General Dynamics signed a letter of intent with a division of San Francisco-based McKesson Corp. to work jointly in developing an electronic health-record product for the U.S. Defense Department. In addition, last August, the company received an HHS contract to develop applications and payment systems for the department's early-retiree reinsurance program.
