Cycle Coordinator

GDIT is preparing to support the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) Office of Financial Management (OFM). The CMS OFM is responsible for reducing healthcare exchange errors by establishing a measurement for the improper payment of Advanced Payments of the Premium Tax Credit (APTC) in a given benefit year while accounting for changes in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA or ACA) policy and regulations.

The ACA is a comprehensive health care reform law enacted in March 2010. The law makes affordable health insurance available to more people, provides consumers with subsidies (“premium tax credits”) that lower costs for households with incomes between 100% and 400% of the federal poverty level, and supports the expansion of the Medicaid program to cover all adults with income below 138% of the federal poverty level.

Job Overview

An opportunity is expected for a Cycle Coordinator to audit sample Marketplace applications to identify improper payments of the APTC. The sample universe for review may range from approximately 2,600 to 10,000 per evaluation cycle.

In this role you will:

  • Establish the sample universe based on the program’s operating plan
  • Prepare comprehensive reports that outline the results of the eligibility review samples for the customer
  • Report lessons learned and use that information to update “best practices” quarterly
  • Make significant contributions to the Difference Resolution and Appeals process, corrective action plans, and other related progressions
  • Create substantial narrative reports which concisely describe factual findings, applicable rules and reasoning employed to arrive at conclusions to support administrative recommendations
  • Use project management skills and workflow tracking tools
  • Oversee ACA Analysts and QA Analysts, ensure the correct samples are being run for each cycle, and communicate trend analysis, per review sample cycle
  • Stay abreast of State-Based Marketplaces guidelines, eligibility, and consumer-facing webpages
  • Perform root cause analyses for eligibility review and reporting business processes
  • Liaise between EIPM’s Functional Manager, eligibility analysts, data analysts, and quality analysts, especially to facilitate information sharing and problem solving.
  • Perform statistical data inspections based on random sampling
  • Confirm payment accuracy to identify improper APTC payments
  • Prepare Error Confirmation Packages. Create an audit trail of the review procedures performed, data and records reviewed, and findings
  • Draft final EIPM Cycle report containing detailed descriptions of all support activities, including a summary of QA and QC activities (i.e., audits and surveys) as well as results and follow-up actions
  • Present current and cumulative data, as well as plans for future performance monitoring and forecasts
  • Build case files for each grievance and ensure compliance with organizational and regulatory guidelines
  • Attend and participate in meetings, training, work groups and quality initiatives as assigned
  • Articulate findings to recommend impactful corrective actions
  • Additional strategic planning duties as assigned 
  • Knowledge of ACA enrollment criteria, ACA legislation, federal guidelines, standard payment measurement procedures, and understand related regulatory and healthcare policy changes at the national level
  • 5 or more years of related experience

Preferred Experience:

  • Foreign language proficiency a plus
  • Knowledge in public health
