Provider Outreach and Education Advisory Group

CGS invites interested parties to participate in our A/B Provider Outreach and Education Advisory Group. The primary function of the Advisory Group is to assist the contractor in the creation, implementation, and review of provider education strategies and efforts. The Advisory Group provides input and feedback on training topics, provider education materials, and dates and locations of provider education workshops and events. The group also identifies salient provider education issues, and recommends effective means of information dissemination to all appropriate providers and their staff, including the use of the PCC to disseminate information to providers. Reference: CMS Medicare Contractor Beneficiary and Provider Communications Manual (Pub. 100-09), chapter 6, section 20.6.1External PDF.

Going forward, the Advisory Group will be a combination of both Part A and Part B providers (Facility/hospital/physician association representatives, compliance officers, key personnel who submit Part A or Part B claims). The membership will consist of two year commitment. CGS has created the Provider Outreach & Education Advisory Group CovenantPDF that summarizes the purpose and goals of the group. The covenant also details the responsibilities of CGS as the MAC and you as an active member.
