HMS Commercial Solutions, a part of HMS Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ:HMSY), announced today that it has been awarded a contract by Boston Medical Center Health Plan, Inc. (BMCHP) in Massachusetts to provide comprehensive fraud, waste, and abuse services, including retrospective and pre-payment reviews.

“The detection and prevention of fraud, waste, and abuse is a paramount concern for Medicaid health plans,” said Ronald Singh, HMS Executive Vice President. “HMS looks forward to working with BMCHP to implement a scalable and flexible solution to enhance the Plan’s program integrity efforts and reduce improper spending.”

HMS has provided services to BMCHP since 2007, delivering more than $40 million in savings during that time.
