G2X TAKE: Adding to what has been a string of wins at CMS in recent months, new CMS MIDS Prime and CMS SPARC Prime RELI Group has just added a new two-year task to provide CMS with administrative, operational and program management support services for the settlement of appeals for Medicare claims and related activities. The work may also involve efforts in conjunction with HHS, the Office of Medicare Hearings and Appeals and the Medicare Appeals Council. This task was awarded as an 8(a) sole source action.
- Other recent wins at CMS include a $23.6M CMS Medical Review Accuracy Contract Award; a 3-year contract to deliver mission-critical support to two websites owned and managed by CMS, Medicaid.gov and InsureKidsNow.gov; two Risk Adjustment Data Validation Medical Record Review Contractor A support tasks; a task award to support end-stage renal disease quality incentive program data validity and reliability; a 5-year award to provide support to CMS for Comparative Billing Reports (CBR); and a 2-year task to provide CMS Audit Administrative Tracking Tool Support in support of the Medicare Part A Provider Appeals program.
- This small business made a number of key hires to help kick off 2018, to include recruiting two former CMS leaders – Michael Reinhold as their new Chief Technology Officer and Sean Rutherford as their new Senior Proposal Manager.
- With more than 100 employees now on staff, this fast-growing small business, who seemingly came out of nowhere, has clearly earned the confidence of CMS decision makers on several fronts, not just IT, and as such this team, led by President and CEO, Sam Elias, continues to be one to watch.
