Human Service Eligibility Determination Software

A Project Kickoff meeting was held today at the State Heritage Center for the new integrated human service eligibility determination software system.  DHS Executive Director, Maggie Anderson, began the meeting by stressing the importance of the counties to a successful outcome, and noting the help given by NDACo and the county social service directors in urging the Legislature to fast track the funding approval.Deloitte, the project consultant, will be directing the modification of software already implemented in Michigan and Montana, and currently being modified for use in five other states. Project goals include a "Release 1" implementation to address 'Expanded Medicaid' eligibility before the end of 2015.  Implementation of this piece is critical to address the increased caseloads that counties have been experiencing, and to triggering enhanced federal administrative reimbursement.  Efforts will then shift to Release 2 which will incorporate all other state/federal programs involving eligibility determination.
