AAHomecare publishes Monday that CMS has advised State Medicaids to abandon the long time practice of requiring that Providers first bill Medicare for rejection on routinely non-covered items in order to receive payment from Medicaid secondary. FINALLY!
Especially wasteful for those Providers in the incontinence business, hundreds and thousands of claims pass through Medicare daily just for the stamp of "this is not a covered benefit" to keep Medicaid paying.
As we wait to see how each State program will react, we'd love to hear from you! DOES THIS CHANGE AFFECT YOUR BUSINESS?
