4/18/2019 4/28/2019 Administrative Services Organization Contract (PCG) • The District of Columbia (District) Department of Health Care Finance (DCHF) has a need for (PCG) to verify Medicaid claims from Partner Agencies before submission to the Fiscal Agent for processing as well as conduct quarterly audits of the paid Medicaid claims and associated documentation. In addition add the operations and the implementation of Administrative Service Organization (ASO) functions for the Office of the State Superintendent for Education (OSSE) to review Medicaid claims submitted by non public schools and early intervention programs administered by OSSE.The current vendor, Public Consulting Group (PCG), verifies these claims via an automated process using software that is proprietary to PCG. • PCG Software must be used for the contract services referenced above because PCG designed and built PCG Software to the District’s specifications for the contract services. As a result, PCG Software is necessary to meet the District’s needs for the contract services. For example, PCG designed PCG Software to ensure that in the course of processing the Medicaid claims disallowances are reduced, and the monies provided to each agency are appropriate. In addition, PCG Software can be augmented to increase or decrease the number of validations of Medicaid claims as needed. • It would be prohibitive in terms of time and cost for the District to use software other than PCG software for the work at issue here. In order to use off the shelf software instead of PCG software, the District would have to pay a vendor to significantly modify the off the shelf software to meet the District’s needs and specifications for the contract services. This would result in significant costs to the District, and delays in providing the contract services. • The District agreed that only PCG will be permitted to perform contract services that require use of PCG Software as it is proprietary to PCG, while a competitively procurement award is sought.
