Get to Know Your MAC Calls & New OTP Webpage Information

To help Opioid Treatment Programs (OTPs) understand Medicare billing, each CMS Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) company will host a teleconference to introduce themselves and educate OTPs on the functions MACs perform; these teleconferences will include information on billing, claims processing, and payment. Find the dates and registration information (PDF) associated with your MAC jurisdiction based on the state of your location. Only register for the MAC call(s) that will process your claims based on your practice location(s).
