WPS GHA Re-awarded CMS J8 Contract
Last updated Jan 08 2019
Jurisdictions:

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced the re-compete award of MAC Jurisdiction 8 (J8) to WPS GHA. This new contract includes the current J8 A/B MAC workload for the states of Indiana and Michigan.  

With this award, WPS GHA will continue to administer the Part A and Part B benefits for the J8 providers in Indiana and Michigan. The contract serves approximately 48,000 physicians, almost 300 hospitals, and 2.1 million Medicare beneficiaries. This jurisdiction represents approximately 5.9% of the overall national Part A and Part B claims volume. As the incumbent contractor for J8, there will be no changes to our operations. This includes no changes to edits, audits, current Local Coverage Determinations (LCDs), or policies. 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 GHA remains committed to delivering outstanding customer service to our J8
provider community.
