ADR, Redetermination, Reconsideration, ALJ Analysis – Palmetto GBA, RAC, MAC and ZPIC

ADR probe cycle is a review of a minimum of 20 and up to 40 episodes, per agency, to determine the agency’s denial rate. The denial rate determines if the agency is released from the probe or has to continue another quarter, this cycle can continue for some time.

From the charts we have reviewed, we estimate only 50% will be paid. The first probe cycle, is a tool to assist agencies moving forward as well as getting paid for the episode under review. If Palmetto GBA denies an episode, and the patient is recertified, when the episode is billed Palmetto will also call for that episode. When they say cycle it’s more like a domino effect, even if they release the agency form the probe, ZPIC will have copies of all results and may trigger Health Integrity for episodes that are deemed as denied.

JCC strongly suggests that you contact us immediately upon receipt of an ADR. This request can obviously affect your agency’s billing right now and in the future. Let JCC assist you in maintaining compliance. Redetermination Analysis Reconsideration Analysis ALJ Analysis
