QIC will transition from C2C to Maximus

Friday, June 28, 2019

WASHINGTON – C2C Innovative Solutions has lost its bid to remain CMS’s Qualified Independent Contractor for HME, according to AAHomecare.

Jacksonville, Fla.-based C2C has popularized a demonstration project that allows HME providers to speak with reconsideration professionals by phone to try and resolve their cases.

Last year, when CMS awarded the new QIC contract to Reston, Va.-based Maximus, C2C protested.

C2C will offer its last phone discussion on Sept. 15 and will complete all decisions by Dec. 31, AAHomecare reports.

Industry stakeholders have expressed concerns with the switch, noting Maximus’ lack of experience with DME.
