What We’re Reading – Medicare Pilot Project for Electronic Submission of Medical Documentation

CMS is launching the Electronic Submission of Medical Documentation (esMD) pilot project for providers to submit medical documentation in electronic fashion when responding to requests from Recovery Audit Contractors.  The new system is expected “to reduce provider costs and cycle time by minimizing and eventually eliminating paper processing and mailing of medical documentation to review contractors. A secondary goal of esMD is to reduce costs and time at review contractors.”
