The latest on competitive bidding

Here’s the lastest news on round one of competitive bidding, courtesy of Don Clayback, The MED Group’s vice president of government relations. Clayback had a call with the Competitive Bidding Implementation Contractor (CBIC) earlier today. Here’s what he found out:

1.) The CBIC will send out notices to all Round 1 bidders within the next two weeks. That could mean this week or next; they would not be more specific.
2.) All letters (winners and losers) will be sent out the same day via Certified Mail. That means everyone should get their letter within a day or two of each other.

3.) Winners will receive a contract to be signed along with the new fee schedule. They will have 10 days from the mailing date to respond.
4.) The contract will be for a three year period commencing July 1, 2008.
5.) Unsuccessful bidders will also receive a letter stating they were not selected.
6.) Despite Clayback's additional inquiries, the CBIC would not share more specific information at this time.
