PAYMENT ERROR RATE MEASUREMENT (PERM) 2017 IS NOW IN PROGRESS
Louisiana Medicaid is mandated to participate in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) Payment Error Rate Measurement (PERM) program which will assess our payment accuracy rate for the Medicaid and CHIP programs. If chosen in a random sample, your organization will soon receive a Medical Records Request from the CMS review contractor, CNI Advantage.
Please be advised that sampled providers who fail to cooperate with the CMS contractor by established deadlines may be subject to sanctioning by Louisiana Medicaid Program Integrity through the imposition of a payment recovery by means of a withholding of payment until the overpayment is satisfied, and/or a fine.
Please be reminded that providers who are no longer doing business with Louisiana Medicaid are obligated to retain recipient records for 5 years, under the terms of the Provider Enrollment Agreement.
For more information about PERM and your role as a provider, please visit the Provider link on the CMS PERM website: http://www.cms.gov/Research-Statistics-Data-and-Systems/Monitoring-Programs/PERM/Providers.html.
