Medicare Providers OK With New MACs

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) says the annual satisfaction survey [ PDF] of physicians and other health care professionals in the Medicare system shows they are satisfied with services provided by Medicare fee-for-service contractors. The average score was 4.51 on a scale of 1 to 6, compared with last year's average score of 4.56.

CMS says the survey indicates "a relatively smooth transition" to the new Medicare administrative contractors (MACs).

The survey gives CMS objective, quantifiable data on provider satisfaction with the fee-for-service contractors who process and pay Medicare claims.
