1/11 New CfC: 3rd-Party Payment

CMS has published a new rule in the Federal Register pertaining to Conditions for Coverage for ESRD Facilities – Third Party Payment.  Comments can be made until January 11, 2017.  The new Conditions will be effective January 13, 2017.  Because CMS has determined that current practices can significantly harm patients, they have shortened both the public comment period and the effective date of the rule.  Find the new rule at https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2016/12/14/2016-30016/medicare-program-conditions-for-coverage-for-end-stage-renal-disease-facilities-third-party-payment .

11/1 SSN Removal Call

On November 1, 2016 CMS will hold an Open Door Forum conference call on the removal of Social Security Numbers from Health Insurance Claim Numbers (HICN).  HICNs will be replaced by randomly created Medicare Beneficiary Identifiers (MBIs) starting in 2018.  For more information see https://nwrnbulletins.wordpress.com/2016/09/29/mbi-replaces-hicn/ .  

The call well be held at 11am PDT, 800-837-1935, conference ID 98745631.  For TTY services, dial 800-855-2880.  CMS requests that participants dial in at least fifteen minutes before the scheduled start time.  

CMS has also advised that between now and 2018, all patients and facilities should make sure that their mailing addresses are kept current.  MBIs will be mailed to patients, and facilities will have to ask patients for their MBI.  Patient addresses in the Medicare, SSA, and CROWNWeb databases should all agree, with a correct and complete address to which the US Postal Service delivers.
