History

Cahaba has been a Medicare contractor since the program began in 1966. Cahaba initially processed Part A and Part B claims for Alabama. In 1997, Cahaba took over the Georgia Part B workload. Cahaba acquired the Part A workloads for South Dakota and Iowa, and one of four Regional Home Health and Hospice workloads in 2000. Later that same year, Cahaba became the processor for the Mississippi Part B claims. In 2003, the passage of the Medicare Prescription Drug Improvement and Modernization Act (MMA) mandated that all Medicare claims processing be done by MACs. Cahaba has continued to be a prominent Medicare contractor and is one of only nine contractors in the nation with experience processing Medicare claims.
