ANOC: The Point of No Return

Well, well, well. Here we are with the calendar just about to flip to June and 2015 Annual Notice of Changes (ANOC) gathering mass like a Category 5 hurricane in the South Indies, and you’re still deciding whether to go with a manual or automated system?

We’ve got news for you: if you haven’t decided yet, it’s too late to go with automation. Why? Because “automated” doesn’t mean “shortcut.” To get a successful ANOC campaign in the mail with auto-compiled books, you still have to perform months of scrupulous set-up work just to get started.

For starters, you’ll need to have your ANOC model already formulated and all data input completed. And even if you do have your ducks in a row, you can never account for late changes that may come down the pike from CMS (which you’ll have to account for in your software), or the inevitable glitches and breakdowns that can occur when you use any sort of automated system.

Add in extensive quality control reviews (translation: “real human eyes on the data”) before you’re ready to finally run the program, and you’ll notice that it’s hardly as automated as advertised anyway.

But the good news is that there is still plenty of time to get a manually produced ANOC campaign off the ground that is both on-deadline and accurate to the last letter—provided that you don’t wait any longer.

Contact us today to learn more about creating a one-time or ongoing ANOC partnership and let our team that eats, breathes and dreams ANOC shoulder the load. Believe us, it’s better than sweating it out in the trenches yourself, and it’s too late to go the digital path with any sense of security. We’ve reached the point of no return, people! Buckle up!
