A CNSI subsidiary has secured a $113 million contract from the Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services to provide utilization management, behavioral health utilization and case management services in support of the Cardinal Care Medicaid program.
Kepro will manage authorizations for inpatient, outpatient, specialty and non-traditional level of care services as well as Medicaid waivers, residential treatments and mental health rehabilitation, CNSI said Wednesday.
The contractor will also provide call center services, a behavioral health crisis line and care coordination for medical and behavioral health matters.
The award, which extends Kepro’s UM services for DMAS since 2006, has a five-year base period and includes five option years.
In November, Carlyle‘s portfolio company CNSI moved to acquire health care management services provider Kepro and merge operations via the transaction. The M&A, which was completed the following month, is a push to deliver technology and service offerings to government-sponsored health agencies and payers.
