WPS Medicare is pleased to announce the 2012 schedule for our Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Ask-the-Contractor Teleconference (ACT). The calls will be for Part B (IL, WI, & MN) as well as MAC J5 A and B states (IA, KS, MO & NE), Mac J5 National Part A and Mac J8 A and B states (MI & IN).
We will approach the call much in the same way CMS approaches their valuable Open Door Forums, promoting a forum that is less structured, and encourages participants to ask whatever they choose, as long as it pertains to Medicare EDI. We look forward to your participation in these calls!
The Medicare Modernization Act (MMA) requires Medicare contractors to hold Ask-the-Contractor Teleconferences (ACTs). This requirement is based on CMS' goal of giving those who provide service to beneficiaries, the information they need to: understand the Medicare program; be informed often and early about changes; and, in the end bill correctly.
The ACT promotes valuable interaction between the Medicare Contractor (WPS) and EDI customers. As stated previously, we modeled our ACTs after CMS Open Door Forums. Participants are encouraged to ask questions and raise concerns regarding EDI. EDI staff is available during the call to provide education, program updates, answer questions, and take feedback. In addition, we will provide necessary follow-up to any issues that cannot be resolved during the call time.
WPS Medicare encourages providers to participate in this important educational activity. You can access a recording of the EDI ACT teleconference on this website approximately one week following the event.
