CMS discontinued the RY2020 Payment Error Rate Measurement (PERM) Audit for Medicaid and CHIP due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and will not report state specific errors for this cycle. Providers may close any pending requests for medical records received from NCI AdvanceMed, Inc.

Attention ACHN Providers: Changes have been made to the bonus payment distribution. See the “Changes to the Alabama Coordinated Health Network (ACHN) Bonus Payment Distribution” ALERT on the Medicaid website for more details.

Effective January 1, 2021, Medicaid will no longer print and mail paper Provider ALERTS and Provider Insider newsletters; however, the publications will continue to be distributed in electronic form from the Alabama Medicaid Agency.

Refer to the October 2020 Provider Insider for detailed information.
