DALLAS, Feb. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- TrailBlazer Health Enterprises, LLC today released notice of the final implementation schedule outlining its plan for assuming responsibility for processing all Part A and Part B fee-for-service Medicare claims in Colorado, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Texas.

TrailBlazer also reiterated the availability of its Jurisdiction 4 (J4) Web site, which is being used to communicate details of the implementation to health care providers in those states. Providers may access the J4 Web site at http://www.trailblazerhealth.com/J4/Default.aspx .

According to the schedule, which has just been finalized by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), TrailBlazer will cut over the workloads from current Medicare contractors in the four-state region to its own offices beginning March 1. The four-state implementation is slated to be completed by mid-June 2008.
