Several ambulance services across the country recently received erroneous letters from CMS Supplemental Medical Review Contractor (SMRC), StrategicHealthSolutions, LLC. These letters suggest that the ambulance service has been selected for review.
Please note that StrategicHealthSolutions, LLC has confirmed that these letters were sent in error, and were intended only for physical therapy providers.
Letters informing impacted ambulance services of the mistake are set to be mailed November 16.
