The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently announced the re-compete award of MAC Jurisdiction 5 (J5) to WPS. This new contract includes the current J5 A/B MAC workload.
With this award, WPS will continue to administer the Part A and Part B benefits for the J5 providers. The contract serves approximately 41,147 physicians, 885 hospitals, and slightly over 2.0 million Medicare beneficiaries. This jurisdiction represents approximately 5.7% of the overall national Part A and Part B claims volume. As the incumbent contractor for J5, there will be no changes to our internal operations or the administration of the Part A and Part B Medicare benefits. As a result, we anticipate implementation of the new contract will go smoothly, with minimal, if any, disruptions in service for Medicare beneficiaries and providers.
WPS remains committed to delivering outstanding customer service to our J5 provider community.
