CGS Won Jurisdiction B Contract

Posted on in Billing/Reimbursement

Every five years, the DME MAC contractors have to bid on their contract. NGS Medicare’s Jurisdiction B contract was up for bid in 2015. CGS Medicare, currently running Jurisdiction C DME MAC, won the contract for Jurisdiction B DME MAC.

Suppliers in Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Minnesota will be transitioning into CGS Medicare. The deadline for NGS to be completed with work is June 24, 2016. CGS will take full controls of Jurisdiction B DME MAC on June 27, 2016. 

Suppliers in Jurisdiction B can start signing up for emails with CGS by going to www.cgsmedicare.com

Within that website there are menu options for DME MAC Jurisdiction C and DME MAC Jurisdiction B Implementation. Go ahead and sign up for the Jurisdiction B Implementation Listserv in order to stay up-to-date with the transition and to become familiar with the website.

CGS will make every attempt to pull over all NGS reference documents in the transition. It’s important to know that suppliers will be moving from Connex to myCGS, but it’s too early to sign up now.
