CGS to Convert to New Accounting System

Beginning June 18, 2015, CGS Administrators, LLC, will convert to a new version of the CMS financial accounting system called the Health Care Integrated General Ledger Accounting System, or HIGLAS. This activity will not impact claim processing activities in the Part B Multi-Carrier System (MCS) or Part A Fiscal Intermediary Shared System (FISS), but will result in dim days where payments will not be issued. 

To ensure that providers do not experience disruption during this timeframe, CGS will be implementing a pay forward action for all J15 workloads. Because this will involve early payment of claims, providers may experience some larger payment days to offset those on which payments will not be processed. Part A PIP and Pass-Through payments scheduled for the week of June 22, 2015, will also be eligible for the pay forward action.
