Claim Page 01 – Entering a Notice of Termination/Revocation - NOTR (8XB)

Change Request 8877External PDF requires that a Notice of Termination/Revocation (NOTR), also known by its type of bill - 8XB must be submitted to, and accepted by, CGS within 5 calendar days after the hospice discharge or revocation, unless a final hospice claim has already been submitted. To be accepted by CGS, the NOTR must be free of billing or keying errors that would cause the NOTR to be returned or rejected.

An NOTR may be submitted to CGS via direct data entry (DDE), meaning it can be keyed directly into the Fiscal Intermediary Standard System (FISS). To submit a NOTR, providers may use FISS Option 49 (NOE/NOA), and complete information on Claim Page 01 and Claim Page 03. You may also submit NOEs via Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) effective with the January 2, 2018, implementation of Change Request (CR) 10064. Refer to CMS 837I NOE Companion Guide for the required elements. 

CMS is aware of cases where the NOTR is returned to the provider (RTPd) when the date of discharge/revocation is beyond the posted hospice benefit period at Common Working File (CWF). CMS issued an MLN Connects Provider eNews article on November 26, 2014External Website, which states that Medicare considers hospices to have met the filing requirement of a timely-filed NOTR if the NOTR they submit is returned for this reason.

The screenprints and tables below indicate what fields are required, and what data is required in each field. If information is not entered correctly, your NOTR will be returned to you for correction (RTP).



  • RED = Required field
  • BLUE = Optional field
  • GREEN = Conditional field, dependent on the type of claim
  • PURPLE = System generated field
  • BLACK = Not required field
