By Far the Quickest Way to Submit Notices of Election

As a hospice provider, you know that one of the greatest obstacles to getting your claims paid is the requirements for submitting Notices of Election (NOEs). Hand-keying NOEs into the Medicare system is horribly inefficient. And if your NOEs aren’t submitted within five days of the date of service, your claims will be rejected. The filing requirements alone can prevent you from getting paid.

We want to make slowdowns a thing of the past.

HOSPICE PROVIDERS: Notice of Election Submission is inconvenient, but it doesn't have to be.

Just because you’re used to something doesn’t mean you have to like it.  Now that Notice of Election (NOE) has to be submitted within five calendar days of admission date, you’ve probably had to make some changes to how you bill. There’s no getting around it. If your NOE is submitted and accepted by CGS outside of the five-day window, it’s no longer considered timely.

In case you were unaware of what this means, if an NOE isn’t timely-filed, Medicare will not pay for the days of hospice care from the hospice admission date to the date the NOE is accepted by the Medicare contractor. These days will be your liability, and you won’t be able to bill the beneficiary for them.
