Request for Response Information
The PERAC Disability Unit schedules Comprehensive Medical Evaluations (CME's) for public sector disability retirees. PERAC recruits occupational health physicians for these services through an open enrollment process.
A Medical Review Organization (MRO) is a health organization that provides medical services within a medical community (examples: hospital-based occupational health unit, independent occupational health clinic, etc.).
In order to work with PERAC, physicians for CME and MRO must respond to our Comprehensive Medical Evaluation RFR. Physicians must meet the criteria described in the PERAC CME RFR and adhere to the conditions, follow procedures, and ensure the quality of the physician reports. Physicians within an MRO must also operate within the mandates of the RFR.
Attachments to the RFR:
- Attachment A
- Attachment B
- Attachment C
- Attachment D (Mandatory Forms)
- Standard Commonwealth Contract and Instructions
- Commonwealth Terms & Conditions
- W-9 Taxation Form
- Authorization for Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)
- Contractor Authorized Signature Verification Form
- Prompt Pay Discount
- Consultant Contractor Mandatory Submission
- PROSPER Business Associate Agreement
- Prosper Account Approval for Medical Vendors
- Attachment E
Responding to the RFR
Responses will be reviewed by PERAC staff. If approved, physicians will be asked to perform objective evaluations and appropriate medical testing (approved by the PERAC Nurse Case Manager), and advise PERAC as to a retiree's continuing disability or ability to be restored to service.
If you have any questions concerning the process, please contact Jane Carritte, Clinical Nurse Case Manager at (617) 591-8953.
