CNSI Awarded Seven Year, $166 Million Department of Labor Contract
Rockville, MD – CNSI, a leading business solutions provider with vast experience developing and delivering innovative healthcare management technology, announced today that it has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL)’s Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP).
CNSI’s scope of work includes the creation and operations of a centralized workers’ compensation medical bill processing solution for four OWCP programs: the Division of Federal Employees’ Compensation (DFEC), the Division of Coal Mine Workers’ Compensation (DCMWC), the Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation (DEEOIC), and Division of Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation (DLHWC).
This $166M contract for delivering a Workers Compensation Medical Bill Process (WCMBP) system will include the processes associated with OWCP and its constituent programs for the receipt of the medical bills and attachments, review of medical bills and attachments against program-specific authorizations, handling of inquiries related to medical services from claimants and providers, and fraud and abuse detection, while adjudicating medical bills utilizing business rules established by each OWCP program.
“CNSI has a long and overwhelmingly positive relationship with the federal government,” said CNSI Senior Vice President of Federal Programs Vijay Mishra. “We are excited to help the federal government in leveraging a modern healthcare solution and providing a flexible, scalable and secured solution that helps the DOL achieve better results at a lower cost. We couldn’t be more pleased to have another opportunity to serve the Department of Labor.”
The project will be CNSI’s second engagement with the DOL, having previously provided software development support for the Department’s Mine Safety and Health Administration. CNSI – known nationally for its implementation of state Medicaid Management Information Systems and Claims processing platform – has supported more than 15 federal agencies.
“We first began working with the DOL in 2007,” added CNSI’s President, Adnan Ahmed. “Since that time, we have revolutionized health IT with the development of the nation’s first completely automated real-time and cloud-based Medicaid Management Information System. The cutting-edge medical claims solutions we’ve developed on the state level give us the experience and expertise to customize a product that will substantially improve efficiencies for a very important function. We can’t wait to get started.”
