New Mexico Human Services Department Awards Fairbanks LLC Multi-Program Contract for RMS and Administrative Claiming

Chicago, Illinois, October 1, 2020

The New Mexico Human Services Department (HSD) awarded a competitively bid contract to Fairbanks for the implementation of Random Moment Time Study (RMTS) and Administrative Claiming for 11 non-school-based programs through the New Mexico Department of Health. Some of the agencies included are the Department of Health (DOH), Aging & Long-Term Services Department (ALTSD), Children, Youth & Families Department (CYFD), and University of New Mexico.

Fairbanks initially partnered with HSD in 2010 to implement RMTS and Administrative Claiming for their statewide school-based program, including drafting a revised New Mexico MAC Claiming Guide for CMS approval. Similar to the school-based program, Fairbanks will support HSD in the creation and submission of MAC Claiming Guides for these 11 programs. This will include policy negotiation and program approvals with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). With this new contract, Fairbanks will continue to partner with HSD in enhancing and improving the reimbursement process for Medicaid reimbursement programs within the state of New Mexico.
