Comprehensive Error Rate Testing (CERT) Program

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services established the Comprehensive Error Rate Testing (CERT) program to monitor and report the accuracy of Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) payments. The CERT program measures the error rate for claims submitted to Medicare contractors. One of the major outcomes of the CERT program is an annual paid claims error rate (percentage of dollars paid incorrectly). CGS uses information about top error categories to develop materials for providers, to help increase the accuracy of submitted claims.
