June 8, 2019 Levanta will no longer be accepting Medicare appeals for home health and hospice clients in New Hampshire. Under the new 5-year contract between CMS and the Beneficiary and Family Centered Care Quality Improvement Organization (BFCC-QIO) KEPRO will now be the BFCC-QIO for appeals in NH and the rest of New England.
Each agency that bills Medicare will need to update their Notice of Medicare Non-Coverage with KEPRO’s phone number. A Memorandum of Agreement (MOE) will also be needed by each agency to complete and submit to KEPRO.
Levanta should have already reached out to the agencies regarding the transition in BFCC-QIOs.
