The Medical Review (MR) mission is to reduce supplier billing errors and ensure that Medicare claims are paid correctly while maintaining the Medicare Program integrity. To reduce claim submission (coverage/coding) and payment errors, and increase timely payments, data is gathered and errors are identified and addressed. It is our philosophy to educate early and often; therefore, the MR and Provider Outreach and Education (POE) team creates coverage and guideline related articles, informational materials, and provide education on claims denied through MR and/or other review contractors. View the CMS Medical Review and Education webpage for details.
