The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is beginning their Payment Error Rate Measurement (PERM) review of Med-QUEST Fee-For-Service providers for services paid between July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020.
Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services uses contractors to perform the PERM review. CMS review contractor NCI, will be sending out requests for medical records and/or documentation.
Please respond to the medical record request letters within the timelines to avoid any errors. If a provider fails to submit all of the requested information, the claim will be considered an error and may result in an overpayment recouped by the State.
