CMS Final Rule: Obtaining Final Conditional Payment Amount from Web Portal and Multi-Factor Authenti

On May 17, 2016, CMS published a final rule in the Federal Register specifying procedures for parties to obtain a final conditional payment amount from the Medicare Secondary Payer web portal and to permit authorized users to view unmasked conditional payment claim information on the web portal through a multi-factor authentication process. The development of these features was required by the SMART Act and had previously been addressed in an interim final rule with comment period issued by CMS in September 2013. CMS first implemented the multi-factor authentication process in July 2015 and the process for obtaining a final conditional payment amount in December 2015. The final rule did not substantively change either process. A copy of the final rule is available here.
