PPS and its partners awarded the Common Working File (CWF) Redesign Project

PPS InfoTech LLC and its partners IBM, Palmetto (GBA), deNovis, and American Management Systems were awarded a contract by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services agency. CMS awarded the Common Working File (CWF) Redesign Contract under a Cost Plus award fee contract to the IBM team.

CWF is the core system for processing the entire Medicare claims that service over 39 million elderly and disabled Americans. The current CWF system is being replaced by the newly redesigned system to take the nation's Medicare claims processing into the 21st century. The redesign will utilize software by deNovis that allows code to be developed from English language requirements. PPS InfoTech LLC provides senior management expertise along with great depth in Medicare claims processing experience to this 5-year contract. Its staff will be working out of offices in Linthicum and Columbia in Maryland.
