Business Description

Industry: Business Services » Business Services
Compare:ADP, G, ENV, CMPGY, SGSOY » details
Traded in other countries:MMY.Germany
Maximus, Inc. was formed in 1975. It provides business process outsourcing services to government health and human services agencies under its mission of Helping Government Serve the People. Its business is primarily focused on administering government-sponsored programs such as Medicaid, the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), health care reform, welfare-to-work, Medicare, child support enforcement and other government programs. It is one of the largest pure-play health and human services administrative providers to governments in the United States, Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom. Its core health and human services business has benefited from steady demand over the last five years. Following this reorganization, the Company conducts its operations through two business segments: Health Services and Human Services. The Health Services Segment provides a variety of business process managed services and administrative support services for state, federal, national and local government programs, including: Medicaid, Medicaid Managed Care, CHIP, Health Care Reform, Medicare and Health Insurance BC (British Columbia). The Human Services Segment provides a variety of administrative support and case management services for federal, national, state and county human services agencies including welfare-to-work programs, child support enforcement, higher education services and K-12 special education services. Its primary customers are government agencies at the federal and state level and, to a lesser extent, at the county and municipal level. In the United States, while certain of its direct customers may be state governments, a significant amount of its revenue from states is ultimately provided by the federal government in the form of cost sharing arrangements with the states, such as is the case with Medcaid programs. Its primary competitors in the Health Services Segment in the United States are ACS, a Xerox Company (ACS); EDS, an HP Company and specialized private service providers. Its primary competitors in the Human Services Segment market include Serco, Atos Origin, private services and specialized consulting companies and non-profit organizations.
