Florida Payment Error Rate Measurement (PERM)

Florida is one of 17 States in a three-year cycle randomly selected by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for the Payment Error Rate Measurement (PERM) initiative for Federal fiscal year (FFY) 2014 (October 1, 2013 - September 30, 2014). This will be Florida’s third time participating in the PERM initiative.  (The two previous cycle measurements were in FFY 2008 and FFY 2011.) For FFY 2014, CMS will measure Medicaid fee-for-service (FFS) claim payments, managed care capitation and premium payments made on behalf of beneficiaries. Florida Medicaid will conduct the measurement to estimate the level of error in its eligibility determinations for Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

PERM is designed to comply with the Improper Payments Information Act of 2002 (IPIA; Public Law 107-300).
