FAIRFAX, Va., April 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services' Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to support the Beneficiary Eligibility Suite of Systems Transactions (BESST) program.  The BESST systems maintain Medicare beneficiary eligibility information and support critical components of CMS's core healthcare mission.  This contract has a potential value of $19.9 million over five years.
