MAXIMUS (NYSE: MMS), a leading provider of government services worldwide,
announced today that its Vermont Health Connect and Green Mountain Care
Customer Support Center has been recognized as a “Certified Center of
Excellence” by BenchmarkPortal. MAXIMUS also received the added distinction of
being recognized as one of the top 100 small call centers studied by
BenchmarkPortal across North America.

The MAXIMUS customer support center achieved the Center of Excellence
distinction based on best-practice metrics drawn from the world’s largest
database of objective and quantitative performance data collected from
thousands of contact centers. Performance data from the MAXIMUS customer
contact center achieved BenchmarkPortal’s recognition in areas such as
operational efficiency, service-level standards, process management, customer
satisfaction, leadership resources and employee training.

BenchmarkPortal also named the MAXIMUS customer support center in its top 100
small call centers. A small call center is defined as having between 5 and 99
employees, and centers with the highest statistical levels for efficiency and
effectiveness were recognized.

The MAXIMUS customer support center supports the Vermont Health Connect and
Green Mountain Care programs, the state’s health benefits exchange marketplace
and portfolio of public health insurance programs. MAXIMUS customer support
representatives help Vermonter’s navigate the health care marketplace,
understand their health care options, and select a health plan that best fits
their health insurance needs.

“We applaud the Vermont Health Connect and Green Mountain Care Customer
Support Center team for their ongoing dedication to meeting performance-based
metrics for high quality customer service,” commented Bruce Caswell, President
and General Manager of MAXIMUS Health Services. “Our contact center will also

plan that best meets their needs.”
