NCI subsidiary nabs $87M contract to support CMS claims program

AdvanceMed, an NCI Inc. subsidiary, has won an $87 million contract to support a Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services program.

Under the contract, AdvanceMed will support CMS’ Comprehensive Error Rate Testing program, which was developed to calculate the Medicare Fee-for-Service program’s improper payment rate using a sample of claims to determine whether the claims have been paid properly based on Medicare coverage, coding and billing rules, the company said in a release.

Under the contract, AdvanceMed will utilize the medical review tracking, reviewing and reporting system it built for CMS, CERT360, which integrates and controls all aspects of the CERT program's medical review activity.
