Palmetto GBA released an update on hospice claims that are being returned to providers in error with the reason code 36188. CMS has issued Change Request (CR) 9042 to correct the issue (scheduled to be released in July 2015). In the meantime, hospices can remove the Value Code 78 and amount from the claim and resubmit the claim through the DDE system.
CMS has announced dark days for FISS and Common Working File Hosts on July 2 and 3. This means that a Notice of Election (NOE) will not process on these days. NHPCO has verified with CMS that all MACs will consider the dark days as a qualifying exception request for a late NOE submission.
On June 4–5, 2015, mumms Software clients, business partners and team members from across the United States and the Caribbean gathered at the Sheraton Hotel in New Orleans to celebrate our 25th anniversary and learn all about Hummingbird, our latest innovation in hospice software. As they wrapped up their conference experience, longtime mumms clients reflected on what their relationship with mumms has meant for their organizations.
We're glad so many of you were able to join us for mumms Silver Conference in New Orleans! Our team had a great time reconnecting with longtime friends in the hospice industry and getting to know so many of the new and future members of our user community. By all accounts, the event was a huge success.
mumms Silver Conference is made possible with the support of our sponsors and exhibitors. Join us June 4th and 5th in New Orleans to meet the wonderful business partners who help make our conference a success, and learn how they can help your hospice grow and thrive.
