Infocrossing Awarded Multiple-Year Contract to Provide
Fiscal Agent Services to MO HealthNet Program

New Contract Ensures Uninterrupted Support to Providers and Beneficiaries and for
New MO HealthNet Program

LEONIA, New Jersey, December 4, 2007 - Infocrossing Healthcare Services, Inc., a leader in providing Medicaid and Medicare services to insurers, today announced that it has been awarded a multiple year contract to provide fiscal agent services to Missouri's MO HealthNet program. The contract also calls for Infocrossing to update Missouri's legacy-based Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) and ensure that it is equipped to administer the new MO HealthNet program, which is responsible for purchasing and monitoring health care services for the state's low income and vulnerable citizens.

The agreement provides for a one year development period followed by up to nine years of operational support (six years plus three optional years). The value of the contract with all renewal options exercised is $407 million.

In order to transform the administrative, operational and system processes that support the state's new MO HealthNet program, Infocrossing will reengineer Missouri's legacy-based MMIS into a dynamic rules-based system with increased functionality and performance and complete internet accessibility. Service highlights include:

   Multiple Tiered Benefit capability that provides the flexibility to administer and maintain benefit packages based on health risk management, reform and cost-containment;
   Enterprise Service Bus middleware that allows multiple state systems and vendors to share data quickly and easily;
   Browser based functionality that provides access to the system via the internet or hand held devices;
   Rules Engine that optimizes the State's need for flexibility, rapid solutions to Healthcare reform, and pro-active response to budget fluctuations;
   Metadata access that allows quick and easy access to MO HealthNet data for the collection of analytical and statistical reporting.

"As the federal government, states, insurers and health care providers all expect faster, broader access to health data, it has become imperative for Medicaid systems to provide pervasive, real-time data access to all of its constituencies," said Diane Twehous, Vice President, Missouri Operations, Infocrossing Healthcare Services. "Our contract renewal with the State of Missouri allows Infocrossing to build upon a successful relationship and develop the IT framework that MO HealthNet will need to service the citizens of Missouri for years to come."

Services to Missouri, including system development, system reengineering and all processing operations will be delivered through Infocrossing's existing offices in Missouri, Florida and New Jersey.

Approximately 828,000 MO HealthNet participants are eligible to receive services each month from approximately 38,900 enrolled health care providers.
