QIC demonstration to wrap by year end

QIC demonstration to wrap by year end

WASHINGTON – The Qualified Independent Contractor (QIC) will begin winding down the demonstration that ends Dec. 31, 2021.  

The demonstration project allows HME providers to speak with reconsideration professionals by phone to try and resolve their cases. Providers are being asked not to delay in returning participation forms or documentation. 

The Medicare Councils will be convening a workgroup to put together communications to CMS on the concerns over the demonstration ending that for the most part has been beneficial for all providers, according to a bulletin from MAMES. 

The demonstration was originally launched in 2016 by Jacksonville, Fla.-based C2C Innovative Solutions. 

In 2018, CMS awarded the contract to Reston, Va.-based Maximus, leading to a protest from C2C, which it ultimately lost.
