Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee Medicare Claims Processing to Merge

 Cahaba GBA, the J10 A/B Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) for the states of Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee, announced in a recent email notification that they will merge three claims processing environments by August 3.  Below is their notification:

       Dear Medicare Part B Providers,

       Multi-Carrier System Merge for J10 Providers (Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee)

Cahaba Government Benefit Administrators,® LLC currently has three Multi-Carrier System (MCS) claims processing environments, which were inherited when we transitioned to the  Jurisdiction 10 A/B Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC). The three regions or segments are:

  • Alabama
  • Georgia
  • Tennessee

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has instructed Cahaba GBA to merge these environments. The transition to the new MCS claim processing environment is scheduled to begin on Saturday, July 31, 2010 and be fully operational on Tuesday, August 3, 2010.

The purpose of this merge is to unify all of the Part B claims processing functions into a single claims processing environment. This includes all data values and files, such as procedure code files and claims history. The merger will result in significant administrative savings while having virtually no impact upon beneficiaries or providers following the merge.

Cahaba GBA is committed to providing the Medicare community we serve with the highest    level of service. Our goal is to make this a seamless transition with as few disruptions as possible. In the event we identify changes that will affect the provider community, we will communicate these changes through our website, via e-mail communications, and in our monthly newsletter, the Medicare B Newsline. In addition, we have established a dedicated section on our website at

We encourage the provider community to visit our website, to receive current and up to date information quickly.

Thank you,

Provider Outreach & Education (POE)
