Noridian Awarded MAC for California

Noridian Administrative Services has received the Medicare Administrative Contractor award for processing Medicare Part A and Part B fee-for-service claims in Jurisdiction E, which includes California. The award was contested in October 2012; however, the U.S. Government Accountability Office has denied those protests. Hospitals should continue to call the Palmetto GBA Provider Contact Center and continue to send claims and appeals to Palmetto GBA until further notice. CHA will continue to update members on the transition as additional information becomes available.
