-MAXIMUS to Present at the 5th National Medicaid Congress-

RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MAXIMUS (NYSE:MMS), a leading provider of government services worldwide, announced today that Bruce Caswell, President and General Manager of MAXIMUS Health Services, will present at the upcoming Fifth National Medicaid Congress in Washington, D.C.

Mr. Caswell will provide an overview of the current and future challenges that impact the efficiency of Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and offer practical suggestions for innovative solutions that states can implement for both programs. His presentation titled “Administrative Innovations for State Medicaid and CHIP Programs” will be part of the “Children and Family Issues” mini summit on Tuesday, June 8.

“As Medicaid and CHIP have evolved, so have the technology and business processes that support these programs,” commented Mr. Caswell. “States must find and implement best practices that capitalize on the new opportunities created by this evolution, especially for administering the outreach, eligibility and enrollment functions. States are improving the overall efficiency and effectiveness of public health insurance programs through modernization and simplification of administrative processes. These actions can place states on a path to successfully address the expansion of insured individuals under Health Care Reform.”

As the President and General Manager of the Company’s Health Segment, Mr. Caswell is responsible for overseeing the development, growth, and operations of the Company’s largest business segment, which includes program administration for Medicaid, CHIP, the MAXIMUS Center for Health Literacy, and the Company’s Canadian health operations. Mr. Caswell has nearly 20 years of experience providing consulting, systems integration, and program operations services primarily to public sector clients.

The Fifth National Medicaid Congress will be held June 7–9, 2010, at the Washington Marriott in Washington, D.C. The three-day session features preconferences on dual eligibles and the medical home, followed by two days of plenary and concurrent sessions. Streamed live over the Internet, the Congress will address questions about the current state of Medicaid and its prospects as health care reform moves forward.
