G2X TAKE: The most recent task award to woman-owned small business Signature Consulting is just the latest in a string of wins for this CMS SPARC and 8(a) STARS Prime thus far in 2018.
Through the use of medical record reviews, the risk adjustment data validation (RADV) project provides audits to validate the accuracy of risk adjustment data submitted to CMS by MA organizations for Part C payments.
Awarded as an 8(a) sole source task under CMS SPARC, this 3-year effort by Signature Consulting will focus on providing independent testing of the systems developed to complete these audits in support of CMS primary RADV objectives to: 1) Estimate national payment error; and 2) Estimate contract-level risk adjustment payment error for payment adjustment and payment recovery efforts.
Said Signature Consulting Group’s COO, Pat Eglin, “SCG looks forward to entering into our 5th year of continuing support to CMS in ensuring quality on the RADV IV&V project.”
This recent task award builds on several awards Signature has added thus far in 2018 in support of CMS, to include a 5-year BPCI Advanced Model management and technical support services task; a task to provide Medicaid.gov & InsureKidsNow.gov Website DevOps Support; and a SPARC Task Order for the development, implementation, and O&M activities on the shared services Quality Measurement Assessment Tool (QMAT). Whatever SCG is doing is apparently working and they are likely to be on more firms’ radar as both a potential partner and competitor.Tags: CMS RADV Signature Consulting Group
