FARGO, N.D. – (July 23, 2018) Noridian Healthcare Solutions, LLC (Noridian) has been re-awarded the Part A and Part B Medicare Administrative Contractor Jurisdiction F (JF) contract by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), concluding a full-and-open competitive procurement. Under this re-award, Noridian will continue to perform the JF contract which it was first awarded in 2011.
“The re-award reflects NHS’s strong performance as a Medicare contractor, as well as our ability to implement innovations and enhancements to provide the best value throughout the contract,” said Paul Wilson, President and CEO. “This is a direct reflection of the great work of our employees.”
Under the JF contract, NHS processes claims for Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. The contract serves 74,000 physicians and over 500 hospitals. Jurisdiction F represents 6.2% of the national Part A and B claims volume.
