Jurisdiction A and Jurisdiction B Contractor Changes
CMS has awarded new contracts for the administration of Medicare DMEPOS FFS claims in Jurisdiction A (JA) and Jurisdiction B (JB). Noridian Healthcare Solutions (Noridian) will be the new contractor for Jurisdiction A and Cigna Government Services (CGS) will be the new contractor for Jurisdiction B effective July 1, 2016.
On the effective date, OmniSYS will transition claim submissions to the new contractor. All pending workloads including claims, payments, appeals, and audits will be transferred to the new contractor and resubmissions will not be required. If you have already enrolled in electronic funds transfer, EFT information will also be transferred on your behalf without any additional paperwork required. Payment delays are not expected.
Each jurisdiction will continue to maintain their own website, articles, etc. Although much of the information to suppliers will be the same, CGS and Noridian will be using the same content to post to both jurisdictions when appropriate. Following the contract transition, the current NHIC and NGS DMEPOS websites are expected to be removed.
As the implementations progress, new information will be posted on the CGS and Noridian websites. The links to the implementation information are: http://cgsmedicare.com/jb/ and https://med.noridianmedicare.com/web/jadme.
