OUR SUCCESS STORIES
Developing Auditing Protocols to Review Medicare Appeals Decisions
CMS needed auditing protocols to evaluate the accuracy, timeliness and quality of the Medicare appeals decisions made by the Qualified Independent Contractors (QICs).
As the Evaluation & Oversight (E&O) contractor, NHA developed auditing protocols for each discrete workload and implemented a consistent auditing approach that was approved by CMS. When CMS later identified the need to perform similar audits on the Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) appeals decisions, they approached NHA to perform this work.
Our Success by the Numbers
