Sneak peek: CMS answers questions about the second IM

Case Management Weekly, April 13, 2011

The ACMA has received a document from CMS that answers questions that ACMA members posed to the agency about delivering the Important Message from Medicare (IM).

The document is a result of the ACMA's efforts to clarify the cumbersome second delivery requirement.

ACMA CEO L. Greg Cunningham presented ACMA members' concerns to a group of CMS administrators, who then asked the association to create a prioritized list of the most pressing issues and concerns about the second delivery of the IM. The document addresses many of those pressing concerns.

CMS plans to revise sections of the Medicare manual to include some of the questions in the document. The agency will release the revised manual later this year.
