Ghostbusters and QIO Program Turn 30: Who You Gonna Call for Medicare Concerns?

Primaris will no longer handle Missouri Medicare case reviews beginning August 1

Thirty years ago, Ghostbusters made the question “Who you gonna call” go viral long before the days of social media.

1984 was the same year Quality Improvement Organizations (QIOs), like Missouri-based Primaris, began answering the call of Medicare patients.  Primaris serves Missourians with Medicare by examining concerns about their care, or by reviewing cases where patients feel services ended too soon – for example, an early discharge from a hospital.

Beginning August 1, 2014, Missourian patients and providers will no longer call health care quality-improvement consulting company Primaris.  All current and future beneficiary quality review case work and appeals will be conducted by KEPRO, located in Seven Hills, Ohio.
