Attention Part B Providers – 06/12/18 Reducing Overlapping Claims - A Collaborative Effort Between CGS and WPS

Overlapping claims continue to be a top claim rejection for providers. Medicare often receives multiple claims for the same beneficiary with the same or similar dates of service. An overlap occurs when the date of service or billing period of one claim seems to conflict with the date on another claim, indicating that one of the claims may be incorrect. Often, overlapping claims can be prevented by knowing how to properly submit claims in these situations.

CGS and WPS GHA are coming together to provide a unique opportunity for our provider communities in the Louisville, KY, area. We would like to invite all Part B providers (billing on a CMS-1500) to join us in this joint endeavor to offer an educational event like no other.

During this half day seminar, Part B providers will join Part A providers while the MACs go over the most common reasons for overlapping claims and steps providers can take in an overlapping claim situation. (Please only register for Reducing Overlapping Claims (For Part A) or Reducing Overlapping Claims (For Part B), not both.)

Some of the topics to be covered include:

  • 3/1 day payment window
  • End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Consolidated Billing
  • Home Health Consolidated Billing
  • What Place of Service (POS) Part B providers should use
  • Steps you can take to resolve overlapping claim issues with another provider

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to collaborate and learn with the MACs processing your claims and help reduce your workload.

Please Note: Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Consolidated Billing is the number one cause of overlapping claim issues. We will be hosting a full day seminar devoted to just this topic the following day. We encourage you to register for both days; however, it is not a requirement.

Registration will close 06/05/18 or when capacity of 60 is met.
