Aug 1, 2012
(Via CMS.gov) On August 1, CMS released the Provider Compliance Interactive Map, a new tool for providers and stakeholders. The purpose of the map and new webpage is to give providers and stakeholders information on the following Contractors: Payment Error Rate Measurement (PERM), Comprehensive Error Rate Testing (CERT), Medicare Recovery Audit Operations (RACs), and Medicare Administrative Contractor (MACs). In addition, the map and website will contain contact information for various state organizations; emails and websites for the different organizations within the state selected; as well as information on other U.S. territories.
The Interactive Map webpage will apply to all 50 states as well as U.S. territories Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Guam, Northern Mariana Island, and American Samoa. The webpage features benefits that allow not only physicians, but beneficiaries, to gather information about CMS review contractors in a specific state. The Interactive Map will simplify concerns regarding who to contact with questions or concerns about Medicare and Medicaid services. The Interactive Map includes vital telephone numbers and email addresses to several key organizations.
