The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) extended for another six months its moratoria on new Part B non-emergency ground ambulance suppliers in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The extended moratoria will run through July 29, 2018. The extension also applies to new non-emergency ground ambulance suppliers in Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) in those states. CMS implemented the moratoria on newly enrolling Medicare providers and suppliers after it identified patterns of fraud, waste or abuse among these particular provider types and geographic locations.
