Better manage Medicare claims, audits and appeals
Participate in the esMD program and submit Medicare pre- and post-payment audits and level one appeals electronically.
The FastAttach software can help you manage Medicare claims, audits and appeals.
Eliminate faxing and mailing of audit responses by using FastAttach for a more secure, timely way to respond to CMS-approved Review Contractors.
The FastAttach software enables you to create a more secure electronic envelope that contains all the requested medical documents required for audit review. You can then easily import documents using a variety of acquisition methods including scan, screen capture, file import, FastKapture® and a unique print capture method that enables you to capture documents from multiple programs with a “print” function. The FastAttach software accepts most file types and performs the necessary file conversion prior to routing the information electronically to the appropriate Review Contractor.
What is esMD?
Electronic Submission of Medical Documentation (esMD) is a program developed by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The purpose of esMD is to enable providers to electronically respond to RAC, MAC, CERT, PERM, ZPIC, SMRC audits and Level One Appeals. Prior to esMD providers responded to requests for medical records by faxing or mailing the documentation to the Review Contractor.
To learn which Review Contractors accept esMD as a method of transmission, please visit cms.gov/ESMD.
