After 10 years and millions of dollars, one of the state’s biggest IT projects has now been certified.
It’s called the “Medicaid Management Information System.”
"It was quite the project," said the assistant Medicaid director for the state Department of Human Services, Erik Elkins.
The MMIS system processes claims and pays providers.
"The entire process is to provide a better, more economical and more efficient system," Elkins said. "That should help both providers and recipients."
