The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has awarded CGI Federal Inc. (CGI), a wholly-owned U.S. operating subsidiary of CGI Group Inc., a $8.9 million, two-year contract to develop and implement the CMS Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight's Rate and Benefits Information System (RBIS). CGI Group is an information technology and business process services firm.

CGI says that, under the contract, it will design, develop and implement the RBIS, which collects rate and benefits data from health insurance providers. Through RBIS, this information will be made available on the Department of Health and Human Services' website, providing consumers with resources to make health and health insurance-related decisions. Consumers are able to review benefit, cost sharing and basic price comparison information for the health plans locally available to them.
