As noted above, we made changes to our business segments in fiscal year 2019. Since October 1, 2018, we conducted our operations through three business segments: U.S. Health and Human Services, U.S. Federal Services and Outside the U.S.
•Our U.S. Health and Human Services Segment provides a variety of business process services such as program administration, appeals and assessments work and related consulting work for U.S. state and local government programs. These services support a variety of programs including the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). We also serve as administrators in state-based welfare-to-work and child support programs.
•Our U.S. Federal Services Segment provides business process solutions, including program administration, appeals and assessments services and system and software development and maintenance services for various U.S. federal civilian programs. The segment also contains certain state-based assessments and appeals work that is part of the segment's heritage within the Medicare Appeals portfolio and continues to be managed within this segment.
•Our Outside the U.S. Segment provides BPS solutions for governments and commercial clients outside the United States, including health and disability assessments, program administration for welfare-to-work services and other related services. We support programs and deliver services in the United Kingdom, including HAAS, the Work & Health Programme and Fair Start; Australia, including jobactive and the Disability Employment Service; Canada, including Health Insurance British Columbia and the Employment Program of British Columbia; Saudi Arabia and Singapore.
Expenses which are not specifically included in the segments are included in other categories, including amortization of intangible assets, costs incurred in restructuring our U.K. business, the direct costs of acquisitions and the gain on sale of the K-12 Education business. These costs are excluded from measuring each segment's operating performance.
