MAXIMUS in Canada

MAXIMUS was first established in Canada in 2002 with the acquisition of Themis Program Management & Consulting Ltd. Under the Themis banner, MAXIMUS Canada manages and conducts full day-to-day administration of the Province of British Columbia’s Family Maintenance Enforcement Program through the Ministry of Attorney General.

In 2004, MAXIMUS Canada was selected by the Province of British Columbia to provide program management and administration services under the Health Insurance BC brand for both PharmaCare (the province’s drug benefit program) and the Medical Services Plan (MSP, the province’s medical insurance program). Under this 10-year contract, we provide full program support for citizens and health care providers including enrolment, account maintenance, claims processing services, document management and associated IT systems maintenance and production support.

In February 2010, MAXIMUS Canada added to our healthcare services portfolio with the acquisition of Atlantic Canada-based DeltaWare Systems. DeltaWare is a market leader in the development and deployment of medical and drug claims software, and its cornerstone product — Medigent® — is in use in nine provinces and territories in Canada.

The Government of Ontario’s Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care selected MAXIMUS Canada in 2012 to provide administrative services for the Ontario Drug Benefit (ODB) Program. The ODB program provides support to nearly three million Ontario citizens with drug benefit coverage under the Seniors Co-payment Program or Trillium Drug Program.
