Medicaid Claims Administration and Financial Solution

​​​​What is MCAFS?

The Department for Medicaid Services (DMS) is in the process of replacing the current Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS), which was implemented in 2007.  The MMIS is a key system for DMS and it accomplishes many things, with one of the primary functions of processing Medicaid claims and paying providers for the services rendered.   The new system is called MCAFS.  The MCAFS will take over the claims processing for the Fee-For-Service (FFS) Medicaid population.  Some of the improvements DMS expects to see from MCAFS are:

  • More automated claims and encounter processing with less manual intervention
  • The ability to more quickly implement Medicaid policy changes 
  • Simpler and easier to use and understand
  • An enhanced Portal for Providers, Members, and Managed Care Organizations which will provide a robust set of self-service capabilities. 
As development continues, the DMS will provide updates on this site.  We encourage you to come back periodically to review those updates.
