While the Review Choice Demonstration (RCD) is slated to launch in Illinois on June 1, providers must make their choice selection by May 16.
If they don’t, Medicare Administrative Contactor (MAC) Palmetto GBA will automatically enroll them in post-payment review.
Palmetto mailed each Illinois agency an April 11 letter that included the agency's affirmation rate during the prior pre-claim review demonstration. Providers with a 90% or greater affirmation rate during that demonstration are able to select from the RCD’s subsequent review options during the selection period.
