Submitting Paper Claims

The Administrative Simplification Compliance Act (ASCA) requires that as of October 16, 2003, all initial Medicare claims be submitted electronically, except in limited situations. Medicare is prohibited from payment of claims submitted on a paper claim form that do not meet the limited exception criteria.

CMS has provided a listing of exceptions to electronic claim submission on its Administrative Simplification Compliance Act Self-AssessmentExternal Website Web page. Some of these include:

  • Small provider claims
  • Claims from providers that submit fewer than 10 claims per month on average during a calendar year
  • Claims for payment under a Medicare demonstration project that specifies paper submission

Prior to submitting any paper claims to CGS, providers should conduct a self-assessment to determine if they meet one of the exceptions for electronic claim submission by accessing the CMS Administrative Simplification Compliance Act Self-AssessmentExternal Website Web page.

When appropriate, paper claims should be mailed to:

CGS Administrators, LLC
J15 Part A Claims
PO Box 20211
Nashville, TN 37202
