CORMAC is awarded a five-year contract by HHS/CMS for O&M and enhancement of CMS National Claims History (NCH), Medicare Provider Analysis and Review (MEDPAR), Common Working File Medicare Quality Assurance (CWFMQA), Standard Analytical Files (SAF), and other auxiliary applications (COBOL). The various systems are critical to CMS core functions. For example, CWFMQA receives daily batches from Common Working File (CWF) of Medicare Part A and Part B claims data (Inpatient/SNF, Outpatient, Home Health, Hospice, Carrier and DMERC). NCH is CMS’ data repository housing all Medicare Parts A and B claims transactions data processed since 1991 through the CWF. MEDPAR is a COBOL file that is a representation of beneficiaries’ final action claims for stays in inpatient hospitals and Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs).
