Nordian granted five year Medicare Claims processing contract

Posted Jan 31 2013 12:00am

This week, Nordian was granted a new Medicare contract. The contract, which will last for five years, will be responsible for 15 % of the claims, and in turn create 200 + jobs, making it the largest contractual agreement known to date.

Under the five-year contract, Noridian will administer claims for Medicare Part A, which includes hospitals, and Part B, which includes physicians, for a region that includes California, Nevada, Hawaii, Guam and American Samoa. The area, which includes more than 3.5 million covered beneficiaries, represents almost 9 percent of the total volume of Medicare fee-for-service claims administration business nationwide .

In this case, Medicare is creating jobs, what other ways do you see it impacting the health care industry in 2013?

For the first time ever, government-supported healthcare expenditures are expected to outpace private insurance. It's imparative to build a long-term, post-election strategy in a time of tighter budget constraints and a growing medicare population. So where do you start? With us!
