Payment Error Rate Measurement (PERM)
The Payment Error Rate Measurement (PERM) is a federal Medicaid audit program that was developed and implemented by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) that measures the accuracy of program payments.
On 08/17/2017, Payment Error Rate Measurement (PERM) review contractor, Chickasaw Nation Industries (CNI) Advantage began contacting Alaska Medicaid providers on behalf of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to request records that have been randomly selected for PERM review.
CNI Advantage representatives will explain the PERM process, the authority for CMS to collect medical records for audit purposes, and identify the appropriate point of contact for each provider.
Providers will have 75 calendar days from the date of the request letter to submit requested records to CNI Advantage.
Additional PERM information is available at http://dhss.alaska.gov/Commissioner/Pages/ProgramIntegrity/perm/Default.aspx and https://www.cms.gov/ PERM.
