NEW YORK, March 3, 2017 – Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. is investigating potential claims against HMS Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: HMSY). Our investigation concerns potential violations of the federal securities laws.

On November 9, 2016, HMS revealed that there could be a material negative impact on the Company’s future revenue due to disputes over the Company’s Medicare Recovery Audit Contractor contract with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”).

Following this news, HMS shares fell $4.61 per share, or approximately 21.5%, to close at $16.80 per share on November 9, 2016.

On March 2, 2017, HMS filed a Form NT 10-K with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission, stating that the Company would postpone the filing of its 2016 annual report and that the Company has identified a material weakness in its internal controls over financial reporting related to the CMS reserves.  HMS also stated that it is “continuing to evaluate whether this issue affects its consolidated financial results, primarily focusing on prior periods in which revenue relating to the CMS business was recorded.”

Following this news, HMS shares fell $0.47 per share, or approximately 2.5%, to close at $18.50 per share on March 3, 2017.
