The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued Change Request (CR) 12657, removing the requirement to submit a Notice of Admission (NOA) before billing for home health denials. CMS will process home health claims without an election period on file if the following are present:
- Type of bill 0320
- Condition code 21
- From date on or after January 1, 2022
CMS revised edit criteria to make sure Medicare systems calculate 60-day gaps in service consistently.
