Growth on existing contracts, new work and the company’s April 2012 acquisition of PSI helped drive the increase, Maximus said.
Revenue in the health services segment grew 11 percent to $176 million over the $158 million for the prior period because of expansion in existing contracts and increased volumes in the Medicare appeals business line, the company said.
“We experienced strong volumes from our federal Medicare appeals business and we also made steady progress in winning new work in the emerging health insurance exchange market, ” said Richard Montoni, president and CEO.
“The company is starting to see revenue materialize from health insurance exchange support operations sooner than expected, ” he added.
The human services segment saw a 35-percent increase in revenue for the quarter, reporting $110.3 million over the $81.6 million in the prior year period.
New work in Canada and Saudi Arabia helped drive the increase as well as payments in a domestic welfare-to-work program that the company does not expect to have higher payments for going forward.
