CMS to Host PAID Act Webinar Next Month
by Frank Fairchok, Vice President of Medicare Reporting Services
CMS is hosting a webinar on June 23, 2021 to discuss upcoming changes to Section 111 Reporting for Non-Group Health Plan entities. These changes are related to the PAID Act, which was signed into law on December 11, 2020 and gave CMS one year to begin providing Part C and Part D enrollment information in the query response file. The intent of these changes is to allow Responsible Reporting Entities to better coordinate benefits and recovery processes where a beneficiary has been on a Part C or Part D plan in the last three years.
The webinar will occur on Wednesday, June 23, 2021 at 1:00 pm ET and will cover:
- PAID Act overview
- File specification changes
- Scheduled testing period information
- Implementation timeline
For more details and to register, see the memo from May 24, 2021.
The webinar will follow an anticipated revision to the NGHP User Guide, which is expected to be released on June 11, 2021. If you have questions regarding the Mandatory Insurer Reporting process or the PAID Act, please contact us at [email protected].
