The Cohen Report: Analysis and “Quickinar” of the NCCI 17.1 Changes Effective April 1, 2011

There are 11,831 new edit pairs, which pushes the total for effective edits to 709,527.  There were 346 terminations for a net gain of 11,485.  In this release, we find that there are around 350 edit pairs that have termination and/or effective dates retroactive to an earlier period with some going as far back as October, 2001.  In fact, all but 10 of the terminated edit pairs are retroactive, adding to the complexity of billing and possible targets for RAC auditors.

If you would like to get a copy of his summary report along with a couple of worksheets that detail these changes, go to www.frankcohengroup.com and click on the Download tab.  There is no charge for the analysis or the worksheets.
