Notes from the 9/21 MMSEA CMS Conference Call
- There are a lot of beneficiaries who are experiencing denials on unrelated claims. CMS isn’t taking much of a position but is lecturing that this is why accuracy of coding is so important. They are advising that the beneficiary should contact the COBC directly if claims are being inappropriately denied.
- During Q&A someone asked whether rumors that liability reporting might be delayed beyond 10/1/11 were true. Barbara Wright responded that there have been several requests. CMS is considering those requests but no decision has been made.
