Getting patient information to us in a timely manner, as well as day sheets, is an important component of being paid for services rendered. Many insurance companies enforce strict guidelines for timely filing (there are exceptions).
Providers: If you are uncertain about a particular insurance company, please give us a call. We are here to help! Also, please remember that in many cases state laws govern timely filing rules.
Compliance Time Has Arrived
A reminder: The new Medicare ID system will become fully operational on January 1, 2020. The new Medicare Beneficiary Identifier features a unique identification number which will enhance subscriber security. A beneficiary’s social security number will no longer be used. Avoid delays in processing Medicare claims. Please provide us with the new ID number ASAP. This will ensure the expedient processing of claims with CMS.
