First Coast Service Options Announces Start up of New Medicare Contract
Date:1/29/2009

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- First Coast Service Options (FCSO), one of the nation's largest fee-for-service Medicare administrators, announced today that it is prepared to implement the first two phases of the new Medicare administrative contract the company was awarded by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) last September. Specifically, the Florida Part B and Florida Part A segments of FCSO's new contract will be implemented on Feb. 1 and 13, respectively. The remaining phases of the contract involve Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands and will be implemented on March 1, 2009.

With these initial implementations, FCSO will be responsible for processing Florida Medicare Part A and B claims and performing other claim-related administrative services. Since FCSO has served as the primary fee-for-service Medicare contractor in Florida for over a decade, these implementations will largely mean "business as usual" for Florida's health care providers.

There are, however, several transition-related changes, primarily concerning payment policies and electronic claim filing procedures and formats, which will be implemented as part of the new contract. FCSO has communicated these changes extensively, using a variety of outreach and educational processes, to ensure Florida's provider community understands them and is ready on Feb. 1 and 13. FCSO's contact information will remain the same for providers following these February cutover dates.

FCSO has been working closely with CMS and health care providers in Florida since being awarded the new Medicare administrative contract last September. "Priority one is ensuring that these implementations maintain the high service levels Medicare beneficiaries and providers in Florida expect and deserve," Curtis Lord, FCSO's vice chairman, said. "We consider it an honor and a privilege to be able to play such an important role
