The high acceptance rate by CMS demonstrates PMSI’s regulatory knowledge and technical expertise, and reinforces our belief that MedicareConnect is one of the most comprehensive MMSEA Section 111 compliance tools available
Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) June 15, 2011
PMSI, one of the nation’s largest and most experienced companies focused on workers’ compensation and liability markets, today announced a 95% acceptance rate on Mandatory Insurer Reporting (MIR) submissions through its MedicareConnectSM solution. MedicareConnect is PMSI’s comprehensive platform for MIR compliance requirements related to the Medicare, Medicaid and SCHIP Extension Act (MMSEA) of 2007.
The reporting required by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to fulfill MIR requirements went live on January 1, 2011. The processes to achieve full compliance are complex and require extensive technology, data scrubbing and timely submission for entities that must report claims. Many reporting entities have encountered difficulties, including significant issues with data validation—resulting in either not reporting eligible claims or unnecessarily reporting ineligible claims to CMS. These data issues can increase risk for payers, as data reported with errors can result in temporary suspension of reporting with CMS, increasing the risk of non-compliance penalties.
“To date, PMSI has queried and/or reported over 1 million claims. The high acceptance rate by CMS demonstrates PMSI’s regulatory knowledge and technical expertise, and reinforces our belief that MedicareConnect is one of the most comprehensive MMSEA Section 111 compliance tools available,” says Pat Sullivan, PMSI’s President of Settlement Solutions. “Mandatory Insurer Reporting is one of the most critical issues we face in the industry today and PMSI has addressed these issues with a robust reporting solution that ensures compliance while minimizing the impact to client workflows and processes.”
The MedicareConnect system contains an advanced library of MMSEA Section 111 regulatory business rules that are consistently reviewed and maintained by PMSI’s regulatory specialists. MedicareConnect offers flexible options to meet the needs of Responsible Reporting Entities (RREs) of any size. Significant benefits of MedicareConnect include:
