Nordian granted five year Medicare Claims processing contract

This week, Nordian was granted a new Medicare contract. The contract, which will last for five years, will be responsible for 15 % of the claims, and in turn create 200 + jobs, making it the largest contractual agreement known to date.

Under the five-year contract, Noridian will administer claims for Medicare Part A, which includes hospitals, and Part B, which includes physicians, for a region that includes California, Nevada, Hawaii, Guam and American Samoa. The area, which includes more than 3.5 million covered beneficiaries, represents almost 9 percent of the total volume of Medicare fee-for-service claims administration business nationwide.

In this case, Medicare is creating jobs, what other ways do you see it impacting the health care industry in 2013?

For the first time ever, government-supported healthcare expenditures are expected to outpace private insurance. It's imparative to build a long-term, post-election strategy in a time of tighter budget constraints and a growing medicare population. So where do you start? With us!
