The Minnesota Department of Human Services is currently the middle of the Payment Error Rate Measurement cycle for Minnesota. PERM is a Medicaid audit conducted by CMS. Director Christina Baltes, RN, PHN, BSN, MA, Manager, Program Compliance and Audits, contacted MPhA to provide pharmacists will information regarding this process. “I wanted to make sure that our providers here in MN have a chance to listen in on the following webinar series that the states and CMS are putting on together. I would also appreciate a reminder to the providers to call me at the number below with any questions small or big-I want to be able to assist them as much as possible ahead of time rather than see them face an error. Could you kindly publish an article in your provider newsletter with the following information and also ask them to call me if they have any questions.” Christina’s direct number is 651-431-4279.
