CMS Provides New Details On Contractors/Auditors With New Website

In response to recent criticism on the lack of information and oversight of contractors, The Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) recently unveiled a new website to provide providers and stakeholders the most up-to-date information on the following CMS contractors: Payment Error Rate Measurement (PERM), Comprehensive Error Rate Testing (CERT), Medicare Recovery Audit Operations (RACs), and Medicare Administrative Contractor (MACs).

The Provider Compliance Interactive Map provides detailed summaries in all 50 states and US territories of the duties of each type of contractor as well as contact information for contractors in your state/region. OPGA Government Relations can provide guidance on which type of contactor you need to contact depending on the issue you are experiencing and assist you with contacting these contractors and other government agencies.  Click here to view the new interactive compliance map.

Questions about the map or information about individual type of contractors listed can be asked here.
