NCI expands AI work with Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services

NCI Information Systems is continuing its long-time relationship with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services with a five-year, $112 million extension of the Comprehensive Error Rate Testing contract.

The extension allows NCI to expand the use of its artificial intelligence solutions including robotic process automation and machine learning for monitoring, measuring and reporting on improper payments under Medicare Fee For Services program.

NCI has supported the CERT program for 20 years.

“As federal agencies continue to embrace artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies, they will become more efficient and enable their workforce to focus on more mission-critical work,” said NCI CEO Paul Dillahay.

NCI will help CMS with the selection and review of Medicare FFS claims to determine whether each claim was paid properly under Medicare coverage, coding and billing rules. Total and partial payment errors are used to calculate and report the improper payment rate to Congress as part of the Health and Human Services Department's annual financial report.
