On February 1, 2013, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released a transmittal regarding new information that is required on claim forms. The change requires home health agencies to report new codes indicating the location where services were provided and indicating whether the services were added to the home health plan of care by a physician that did not certify the plan of care. These changes are to be implemented with home health episodes beginning on or after July 1, 2013.
The full transmittal can be found on the CMS website.
Until next time,
