Heard the news? Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) recently introduced the CERT A/B Contractor Task Force during a national teleconference on August 20, 2013. The task force is a new collaboration of all Part A and Part B MACs to educate providers on national issues of concern regarding improper payment errors. The goal is to reduce the national payment error rate, as measured by the Comprehensive Error Rate Testing (CERT) program. This new partnership affords providers the benefit of a collaborative, consistent voice to reduce costly claim denials as well as the CERT error rate.
