Today, October 26, 2015, CMS released a Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) document on the new Commercial Repayment Center (CRC) (click here). The FAQ provides the same/similar guidance previously provided on CMS webinar held on September 17th. However, of particular mention in the FAQ not previously brought to light is that the CRC will generally not issue correspondence/CPNs when the conditional payment amount is zero. The FAQ document is helpful for quick reference on this new transition of some the NGHP recovery threshold to the CRC. For more information on the CRC transition, please see our prior blog.
