Targeted Probe and Educate (TPE) for Jurisdiction C

Beginning October 2, 2017, CGS Jurisdiction C DME MAC will begin the TPE program. TPE will include up to three rounds of supplier-specific prepayment probe reviews followed by education to improve identified errors. The goal of TPE is to improve the claims payment error rate and reduce the volume of appeals through claim review and education.

If a high error rate persists following the maximum of 3 rounds of review and education, CGS will refer the supplier to CMS for possible further action. In addition, discontinuation of TPE may occur at the conclusion of any round if sufficient improvement is achieved through claim review.

Jurisdiction C suppliers can expect the following:

If selected for review, suppliers are not excluded from other Medical Review activities, such as, automated reviews, other pilot review programs, prior authorization, etc., as directed by CMS or other contractor reviews. Additionally, CGS will continue to work with other CMS contractors and collaborate with referrals back and forth to the UPIC for concerns related to potential fraud/abuse and Recovery Auditor (RA) for collaboration of vulnerability and to prevent duplication of reviews.
