MAXIMUS To Manage West Virginia’s In-Person Assister Program

MAXIMUS (NYSE: MMS), a leading provider of government services worldwide, announced today that it has signed a new contract with the West Virginia Offices of the Insurance Commissioner (OIC) to develop, manage and maintain an In-Person Assister (IPA) program to support the state’s health insurance marketplace. The $4.5 million contract began on July 15, 2013 and will run through July 15, 2014.

Under the contract, MAXIMUS hires, trains and manages approximately 60 in-person assisters who are located in each of the state’s 55 counties. The assisters help educate consumers on their options for health insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act and also provide one-on-one enrollment assistance. The West Virginia marketplace is run in partnership with the federal government.

“We are very pleased that our relationship with West Virginia has expanded beyond providing full-service child support for Kanawha County,” commented Richard A. Montoni, Chief Executive Officer of MAXIMUS. “This new contract underscores the state’s satisfaction with our past work and its confidence in our ability to help its residents secure health insurance coverage.”

MAXIMUS brings unrivaled experience and reliability in helping states administer and operate large-scale government health benefits programs. The Company helps 19 states and the District of Columbia operate their Medicaid programs. Having managed large-scale program operations on behalf of states, MAXIMUS offers West Virginia a deep understanding of the local community, as well as the capacity and scalability to support long-term efforts in helping individuals and families secure health insurance through the federal marketplace.


MAXIMUS is a leading operator of government health and human services programs in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and Saudi Arabia. The Company delivers business process services to improve the cost effectiveness, efficiency and quality of government-sponsored benefit programs, such as Medicaid, Medicare, Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), Health Insurance BC (British Columbia), as well as welfare-to-work and child support programs around the globe.
