Jurisdiction J A/B MAC Transition

Transition Information for AL, GA, and TN Medicare Providers

Periodic Interim Payments (PIP) and Pass-Through Payments scheduled to be issued on Monday, February 19, 2018, will be issued on Tuesday, February 20, 2018, due to Presidents' Day which is a bank holiday.

As a result of the JJ transition occurring in two segments, Part A on January, 29, 2018, and Part B on February 26, 2018, the ability to submit documentation through esMD is temporarily unavailable for Jurisdiction J Part A providers. Providers may resume submission through esMD on February 27, 2018. As an alternative, providers may use Palmetto GBA eServices, fax or hardcopy methods to submit necessary documentation.

On September 7, 2017, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has selected Palmetto GBA as the A/B Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) for Jurisdiction J (JJ), which includes the states of Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee. Part A providers transitioned on January 29, 2018, and Part B providers will transition on February 26, 2018. We anticipate a smooth transition and assure you that we are taking measures that will provide the least disruptive impact to day-to-day operations of the provider community.
