Medicaid Audit Information Webinar

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.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is hosting six Payment Error Rate Measurement (PERM) Provider Education Webinar/Conference calls during PERM Cycle 1 (2012). The purpose is to provide an opportunity for the providers of the Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) communities to enhance your understanding of specific Provider responsibilities during PERM.
The PERM program is designed to measure improper payments in the Medicaid and CHIP programs, as required by the Improper Payments Information Act (IPIA) of 2002 (amended in 2010 by the Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Act or IPERA).

Webinar/Conference call participants will learn from presentations that feature:

  • The PERM process and provider responsibilities during a PERM review
  • Frequent mistakes and best practices
  • The Electronic Submission of Medical documentation (esMD) program
