New Month! New CGS Medicare Bulletin!

The August 2020 Medicare BulletinPDF is now available in its new all line of business format. Starting with this issue, CGS has consolidated the Part A, Part B, and Home Health & Hospice (HHH) bulletins into one, the J15 Medicare Bulletin. In this new format, you will be able to identify articles that are specific to your Part A, Part B, or  HHH provider type by the clear headings that group articles together. The J15 Medicare Bulletin includes Medicare Learning Network (MLN) articles issued by the Centers of Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and articles from CGS staff providing you with resources and guidance.  A great source of information for your entire staff.

All bulletins are located on the following web pages.

The August 2020 J15 Medicare BulletinPDF is now available on our website. Articles include:

  • Advance Beneficiary Notice of Noncoverage (ABN), Form CMS-R-131 Renewal
  • Update to the Interest Paid on Clean Non-PIP Claims Not Paid Timely
  • Reducing Denials through Correct Coding

Remember, the "Test your Knowledge"External Website exercise is also available, where you may earn education credit for reviewing the August 2020 edition of the J15 Medicare Bulletin!

If you correctly answer eight of the ten questions, you will receive a Certificate of Completion that may be used to obtain education credit through your associations and societies! Good luck!
