08/10/2015

RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MAXIMUS (NYSE: MMS), a leading provider of government services worldwide, announced today that Clint Fuhrman, Vice President, Program Integrity, will be a featured presenter at the 31st Annual National Association for Medicaid Program Integrity (NAMPI) Conference.

Mr. Fuhrman will present during the session titled “Effective Member Integrity: How the Use of Enhanced, Continuous Eligibility Verification and Risk Scoring Can Reduce Costs and Improve Service Delivery.He will highlight how states can maximize efforts to address fraud, waste and abuse at the member level and will provide real-world examples from successful projects, including those operated by MAXIMUS. Mr. Fuhrman will share how states have used data aggregation, analytics and flexible staffing models to improve eligibility processes, reduce waste, and identify potential instances of fraud, and therefore improving their member integrity.

“The need for better eligibility verification has become very clear over the past few years,” said Bruce Caswell, President of MAXIMUS. “Several states have conducted audits that showed health coverage was provided to citizens who had moved out of state or who were deceased. Mr. Fuhrman will discuss how states can achieve a more efficient eligibility validation process that could potentially save millions of dollars for taxpayers, while ensuring that citizens in need are receiving the right benefits.”

In addition to the presentation, MAXIMUS will be a featured exhibitor at the conference. MAXIMUS program integrity experts will highlight the DecisionPoint for Program Integrity solution and demonstrate the solution’s software tool. DecisionPoint for Program Integrity is part of the DecisionPoint set of solutions, which provide states with actionable information to make better, faster and more accurate program decisions. The DecisionPoint for Program Integrity exhibit will be located at booth #209.

NAMPI encompasses all 50 states and has members from various professional disciplines, all working together to focus on limiting fraud and abuse in the National Medical Assistance Program. The 31st Annual NAMPI Conference will take place August 9-12, 2015 at the New Orleans Marriott in New Orleans, Louisiana. To learn more, visit https://nampi.net.
