mumms Software is proud to be a part of the IV 100, a select group of forward thinking corporations, foundations, and individuals who have committed over $4.5 million from 2015-2017 to support The Idea Village's efforts to drive a self-sustaining entrepreneurial ecosystem in New Orleans by 2018. The IV 100 was announced leading up to the 2015 New Orleans Entrepreneur Week.
The mumms Team will be at the AAHPM & HPNA Annual Assembly in Philadelphia this week. We're looking forward to seeing some familiar faces and meeting new friends at the conference. The AAHPM Annual Assembly brings together hospice and palliative care nurses, physicians and healthcare providers interested in aquiring new skills or expanding their current skillset.
Since the implementation of CR 8358 in April 2014, CGS has identified several claims being delayed due to non-valid HCPCS. Save this quick reference to the 2015 list of valid HCPCS from the CMS website and review theses reminders to help eliminate HCPCS errors.
Palmetto GBA has found that some hospice claims which requested late NOE exceptions did not receive an initial determination on the request.
At this time, no provider action is necessary to resolve this issue. Palmetto GBA is reprocessing these requests for a new initial determination and will update you on the status of the request as soon as it is available.
Palmetto GBA has identified that some hospices are receiving late filing appeal submission dismissal letters after filing an appeal for an untimely Notice of Election (NOE). These letters state that Palmetto GBA is unable to process your claims due to “Our records indicate you have the ability to enter/adjust claims in DDE and/or EMC…” or “Other reason: Invalid use of Redetermination Form. Contact the PCC for assistance.”
At this time, no provider action is necessary. Palmetto GBA is reprocessing these requests and, once the review is complete, will adjust the claim appropriately.
