GDIT is looking for a Senior Quality Analyst / Test Team Lead to provide the technical and functional oversight of the test team. You will be part of a 6 member test team supporting CMS’ Medicare Part D Prescription Drug program. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) implemented the Drug Data Processing System (DDPS) to support CMS’ implementation of a new prescription drug benefit program for Medicare mandated by the Medicare Prescription Drug Improvement and Modernization Act (MMA) of 2003.

The DDPS project consists of operational and business related technical changes to the Drug Data Processing System which processes all drug events covered by the Medicare Prescription Drug Benefit of the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement and Modernization Act (MMA) of 2003, particularly all drug event transactions covered under Part D. Data stored by the DDPS can be analyzed for evidence of fraud, waste, and abuse, as well as for risk adjustment, drug utilization, auditing, trends, payment, and benefit adjustments and reporting.

The DDPS also stores the drug events to effect payment reconciliation through the PRS, a system for payment management of the MMA Part D Prescription Drug Program. The payment management process helps to ensure that the Government is fiscally responsible and the participating Part D plans are compensated appropriately for their participation in providing drug benefits. The PRS compares Part D prospective payment information to actual cost in order to perform three required payment reconciliations: Low-income cost-sharing subsidy (LICS) reconciliation, Reinsurance reconciliation, Risk-sharing/risk corridor reconciliation.
