Payment Error Rate Measurement (PERM)

Payment Error Rate Measurement (PERM) is a federal Medicaid audit program that was developed and implemented by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) that measures the accuracy of program payments.

The Reporting Year (RY) 2024 PERM review results will be released November 2024.  The review included Alaska Medicaid payment dates of July 2022 through June 2023.

The PERM contractors conduct reviews of claims and payments in an effort to identify any improper payments. Providers enrolled in the Alaska Medical Assistance program may be contacted by a PERM contractor informing them that a claim submitted has been selected for a federal audit program called Payment Error Rate Measurement.

This website contains PERM resources and information for providers, and additional information is available from CMS.
