OUR SUCCESS STORIES
Instructing Medicare Administrative Contractors on Medicare Cost Reports
CMS needed to train the Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) on the processes for auditing annual cost reports and reimbursements from Medicare-certified institutional providers.
NHA developed computer-based trainings (CBTs) for the MACs that are playable on demand, allowing the MACs to train new staff as well as provide refresher training to current staff on an ongoing basis.
Educating Insurers Across the Nation on Federal Reporting Requirements
In 2007, Congress passed a law requiring private insurers to report cases when Medicare beneficiaries were covered under Group Health Plan and Non-Group Health Plan arrangements. To implement this broad-sweeping new law, CMS needed to educate a very large audience on how to report information to the Federal Government.
NHA produced CBTs to instruct thousands of insurers on the new mandatory reporting requirements. These CBTs are still in use by CMS to this day.
