Palmetto has also designated May 28, 2011 as its Operational Date – the date on which outgoing contractor, CIGNA Government Services, will transfer all pending and in-process Part B operations to Palmetto, including claims, appeals, and enrollment applications. It is also on this date that physicians and practices will be required to use a New Payer ID Number when filing Part B claims. Read more in Palmetto’s first major statement to NC physicians and other Part B providers.
As mentioned in the statement, it’s important for physicians and their practice staff to register to receive e-mail updates through the Palmetto GBA listserv, for the latest news regarding the transition. Register for the listserv by clicking here.
Palmetto will also provide information updates on its dedicated Part B transition websites as they become available.
