CMS has finalized the testing phase of the new WCMSA Submission Portal. CMS will be announcing a town hall meeting for Nov 29, 2011 to introduce the WCMSA Submission Portal to the general public. An announcement will be posted on the CMS website: http://www.cms.gov/WorkersCompAgencyServices/12_WCMSAP.asp
As the portal is now open for unlimited submissions for the testers and will be open to the general public in the near future, reviews submitted through the portal will no longer be handled as a priority. The submissions will be reviewed on a first come basis.
On another note, the current WCRC will be doing overtime to catch up on the backlog.
