States and territories can streamline procurement of Conduent’s Medicaid services through a NASPO ValuePoint contract
FLORHAM PARK, N.J., Feb. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Conduent Incorporated (Nasdaq: CNDT), a business process services and solutions company, today announced it has been selected by NASPO ValuePoint’s multistate sourcing team to provide government agencies with Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) Claims Processing and Management Services. Under the agreement, states and territories now can procure Conduent’s services through ValuePoint, including Medicaid claims processing, financial management, and solutions for customer service and reporting of federal data.
NASPO ValuePoint, the contracting arm of the National Association of State Procurement Officials, facilitates agencies’ solicitations and coordinates open competitions for contracts, enabling states to lower administrative costs and share resources. NASPO is a non-profit organization comprised of chief procurement officials from all 50 states.
“We provide the highest standard of excellence for public cooperative contracting, and we’re pleased to add Conduent as a qualified vendor for Medicaid,” said Sarah Hilderbrand, Chief Operations Officer at NASPO ValuePoint. “Our mission is to deliver the most valued, reliable and competitively sourced contracts. Using a Lead State™ model and supported by a Sourcing Team™ comprised of state procurement representatives and subject matter experts, we leverage the expertise and buying power of states and other participating entities.”
Conduent’s selection comes at just the right time, as states across the country are preparing to pivot to next-generation Medicaid systems, capabilities and technologies. Many agencies are moving away from a monolithic MMIS approach to implement an integrated suite of services that are modular and flexible.
Conduent Medicaid Suite
The Conduent Medicaid Suite (CMdS) is a modular, end-to-end solution to meet states’ needs.

“Our team continues to innovate for states to move Medicaid forward, and NASPO ValuePoint’s selection makes it easier for agencies to procure our services,” said Pat Costa, Group President, Healthcare Solutions at Conduent. “Our CMdS solution is production-ready to support states as they migrate from a legacy MMIS to a digital, interoperable and scalable solution.”
