New Name for CBIC Ombudsmen
CMS is changing the name of the Competitive Bidding Implementation Contractor (CBIC) ombudsmen to CBIC liaisons. This change will help distinguish the CBIC liaisons from the CMS Competitive Acquisition Ombudsman. The CBIC liaisons are now available to assist suppliers, referral agents, and other key stakeholders with questions and concerns about the program, provide assistance locating contract suppliers, and participate in educational events. There is a dedicated CBIC liaison assigned in each of several regional geographic territories consisting of Round 1, Round 2, and National Mail-Order competitive bidding areas. A list of CBIC liaisons and their contact information is available at www.dmecompetitivebid.com under ‘Contact Us.’
