MAXIMUS Call Centers Recognized For Superior Performance

Stocks in this article: MMS

MAXIMUS (NYSE: MMS), a leading provider of government services worldwide, announced today that its Massachusetts Health Benefits (MassHealth) Customer Service and Georgia Families call center operations have once again been recognized as “Certified Centers of Excellence” by BenchmarkPortal in collaboration with the Center for Customer-Driven Quality (CCDQ) at Purdue Research Park.

Both call centers received the award certification following a rigorous review by BenchmarkPortal. To earn the Center of Excellence designation, the call centers had to meet objective and quantitative criteria, as well as pass audits conducted by BenchmarkPortal researchers. The call centers were evaluated across several key indicators, including operational efficiency, service level standards, process management, customer satisfaction, leadership resources and employee training.

MAXIMUS has provided services for MassHealth participants since 1998. Through its Boston-based call center, the Company enrolls Medicaid participants into managed care health plans, processes provider claims, enrolls and credentials providers, and maintains self-service online options for both providers and participants. The Company has operated the Georgia Families Program for the Georgia Department of Community Health since 2005, facilitating program enrollment for eligible members of Medicaid and PeachCare for Kids, Georgia’s Children’s Health Insurance Program.

“Efficient and effective call center operations are a critical component to connect consumers to health insurance coverage. Our customer care representatives provide choice counseling to help Medicaid and CHIP participants evaluate and select the health insurance plan that best meets their needs,” commented Bruce Caswell, President and General Manager of the MAXIMUS Health Services Segment. “We are pleased to see that our MassHealth and Georgia Families customer service operations are once again recognized for providing a superior level of service to public health insurance program participants.”
