ACS Lands $48M Contract Renewal from Wyoming
Dallas-based business process outsourcing firm Affiliated Computer Services Inc. announced Tuesday that it has renewed a service contract with Wyoming's Health Department worth an estimated $48 million. Specifically, ACS said it will provide fiscal agent services for the department's Medicaid and Dental program. According to ACS, the five-year contract represents the third-consecutive win for ACS in the Cowboy State. Teri Green, Wyoming's state Medicaid agent, said ACS has helped the state provide a "user-friendly, data-driven and cost-effective" program. ACS added that, as a result of the extended contract, it will establish a call center to address provider questions from the dental community.
