CMS issues final rule for payment error rate measurement for Medicaid and CHIP

Recovery Auditor Report, August 19, 2010

On August 10, CMS released the final regulations that will fully implement improvements to the payment error rate measurement (PERM) for Medicaid and the children’s health insurance program (CHIP).

PERM measures improper payments in Medicaid and CHIP and produces national-level error rates for each program. These reviews are conducted to determine whether the sampled cases meet applicable Medicaid and CHIP fee-for-service, managed care, and eligibility requirements.
