Notice to Providers about New Medicare Advantage Coding Requirement

Beginning July 1, 2014, CMS is requiring Medicare Advantage Organizations (MAOs) to submit Health Insurance Prospective Payment System (HIPPS) codes with all of their claims for care delivered to skilled nursing facility (SNF) and home health agency (HHA) patients. It may have an impact on the data SNFs will be required to submit to their plan partners. Click here for a link to AHCA’s member notice for helpful information about submission of claims.
