At this meeting, accounts receivable bookkeepers have the opportunity to discuss with their peers the billing and collections issues that they experience on a daily basis. The goal of the group is to share our collective knowledge and experiences to improve all of our collection efforts.

9/22/15 ICD-10 Program Follow Up Alert

  • Click here to find CMS notice SE1408. This notice includes guidance on billing for residents who discharge from the facility on Oct 1 and have billable services in Sept. Per the guidance if the resident discharges on Oct 1 the entire bill should be billed using ICD10 codes NOT ICD9. Remember that you cannot bill both 9 and 10 codes on one bill. These claims have been put into suspense in the system with a notice that this is a temporary issue and the provider does not need to do anything. We are currently attempting to speak with someone regarding the extent of this suspended status.
