Fee-For-Service Claims Processing and Payment to Continue During Shutdown

October 1, 2013

According to an email blast sent out this morning, Medicare Administrative Contractors (MAC) “will continue to perform all functions related to Medicare fee-for-service claims processing and payment” during the time that the partial government shutdown is in effect.

ASCA staff is in constant communication with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) payment policy staff, and will update our membership of the impact a prolonged shutdown might have on our payment system.
