Medical Record Review Results

Targeted Probe and Education (TPE) Reviews - CMS is resuming the Targeted Probe and Educate (TPE) program to help educate providers and reduce future denials and appeals. For more information on the TPE process, refer to the Targeted Probe and Educate page.

Service Specific Prepayment Reviews - Noridian has no current active Service Specific Prepayment Reviews. Prepayment reviews occur when a reviewer makes a claim determination before claim payment has been made. Prepayment reviews always result in an “initial determination.”

Service Specific Post-Payment Reviews - All post-payment reviews will be closed. Post-payment reviews occur when a reviewer makes a claim determination after the claim has been paid. Post-payment reviews result in either no change to the initial determination or a “revised determination” indicating that an overpayment or underpayment has occurred.

Supplier compliance results for all TPE reviews completed from January 2022 - March 2022 included:

  • 10-Claim Preview - 14% compliance
  • Round 1 - 67% compliance
  • Round 2 - N/A
