• CMS Reprocessing All Submitted Medicare Claims for First Quarter of 2018

    The Academy has learned that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has instructed its Medicare administrative contactors to reprocess all claims submitted between Jan. 1 and April 1, 2018. This results from legislation passed in February that changed the work geographic practice cost index. Contractors will process all claims, but will change only some. Claims will be processed automatically; no action is necessary. For more information, the Academy urges you to read CMS’ announcement (PDF),which will show how your area is affected.
