Transition of Medicare Part A and B Workload Serviced by TrailBlazer Health Enterprises, LLC (TrailBlazer) to Novitas Solutions Inc.

Dear TrailBlazer Providers:

Welcome to Novitas Solutions, Inc., the Jurisdiction H (JH) Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC).  The JH region encompasses the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas, as well as including providers in these states that were previously processed by Wisconsin Physician Services (WPS).

Our mission is to ensure a smooth transition of your services from your current contractor, TrailBlazer, to Novitas Solutions.  The transition of workload for CO, NM, OK, TX and WPS Legacy Part A providers is scheduled for October 29, 2012.  The transition of workload for CO, NM, OK and TX Part B providers is scheduled for November 19, 2012.  Providers physically located outside of JH that are currently serviced by TrailBlazer will also be transitioned to Novitas as part of the JH implementation.

Upon completion of the transition, Novitas will be responsible for providing all of your Medicare Part A and B services, which include, but are not limited to enrollment, electronic billing and data interchange, claims processing, provider contact center, appeals, medical review, audit and reimbursement/settlement, and outreach and education activities.
