CGS, a Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC), recently announced a new website for the submission of claims for untimely notices of election (NoE). The new website, Submitting Claims for Untimely Notices of Election (NOEs), will assist hospice providers with determining the receipt date of the NOE, and it also provides details on how to submit a hospice claim when the NOE is untimely.
According to the new CGS website:
“Effective for hospice admissions on/after October 1, 2014, the hospice notice of election (NOE) must be submitted to and accepted by CGS within 5 days after the hospice admission to be considered timely…
If the NOE is not received timely, those days from admission to the day before the NOE was received, are considered noncovered, and the provider is financially liable for those days.”
For more coverage on hospice NOEs, including a Q&A section that is available on NAHC’s website, please see NAHC Report, September 24, 2014.
