Welcome first-tier, downstream, and related entities!

Thank you for your partnership with ApexHealth to help us provide exceptional service to our Medicare members. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) refers to our contracted partners as First-tier, Downstream, and Related entities, or FDRs. We are required to effectively manage and oversee our FDRs who assist us in providing administrative and/or healthcare services for our Medicare members. We maintain the ultimate responsibility for fulfilling the terms and conditions of our contract with CMS. CMS may hold us accountable for the failure of our FDRs to comply with Medicare program requirements.

We value you as a trusted partner and rely on you to fulfill the requirements of our contract with CMS. In turn, you can rely on us for the teamwork and support you need. To that end, this website provides the tools to help ensure that we meet Medicare program requirements. We make compliance easy!
