Suspended September Claims

Posted Wednesday, October 7, 2015

Attached you will find CMS notice SE1408. This notice includes guidance on billing for residents who discharge from the facility on Oct 1 and have billable services in Sept. Per the guidance if the resident discharges on Oct 1 the entire bill should be billed using ICD10 codes NOT ICD9. Remember that you cannot bill both 9 and 10 codes on one bill. These claims have been put into suspense in the system with a notice that this is a temporary issue and the provider does not need to do anything. We are currently attempting to speak with someone regarding the extent of this suspended status.
