TMA will hold a tele-town hall meeting at 8 pm CDT on Oct. 25 as part of its ongoing efforts to help physicians prepare for the Nov. 19 switch from TrailBlazer Health Enterprises to Novitas Solutions for processing Medicare claims. Novitas representatives will join TMA physician and staff experts to give you a quick overview of what the transition means to you and to field your questions.
TMA will call you at your home phone number. If you would prefer TMA to call you at another number or if you would like to include your office administrator or another staff member, contact the TMA Knowledge Center by phone at (800) 880-7955 or by email.
TMA's Novitas Resource Center tells you what you need to do right now, provides links to the Novitas transition website, gives you a heads-up on training events such as the upcoming webinar in mid-October, and lists the Novitas toll-free phone number established to answer your questions. That number is (855) 252-8782.
While Texas physicians switch to Novitas on Nov. 19, hospitals and skilled nursing facilities will switch Oct. 29. Novitas will also handle Medicare claims in Arkansas, Colorado, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, and Oklahoma.
