Just look at an example of our instructions vs. the Medicare website!
A Comparison of Medicare Directions and Our Instruction Manual
From The Medicare Website
Item 24C – Medicare providers are not required to complete this item
What does this tell you? What if Blue Cross requires it? What is that box actually calling for?
Here’s how we explain it in our CMS 1500 Instructions ebook.
Box 24C – is to indicate if the services were EMG or emergency. Enter ‘Y’ for yes, or leave blank for no.
From The Medicare Website
Item 22 – Not Required by Medicare – Leave Blank
Well, that’s fine if you are billing only Medicare, but what about the commercial insurance companies? We explain what information goes into each box, where to find that information, and when it is necessary to put that information on the claim form.
Box 22 – is for Medicaid re-submission claims only. If your Medicaid office allows you to submit claims on CMS 1500 forms (NYS requires us to use a separate Medicaid CMS form for billing paper claims) then you would use this field to indicate that the claim was a re-submission.
You would enter the appropriate 3-digit re-submission code in the first part of the box. This code can be obtained from your Medicaid Provider Manual. (If you don’t know where your Medicaid Provider Manual is most of them are available online. Check with your local Medicaid office.)
The second part of the box is for the 17-digit TCN number which would be located on the Medicaid eob. You would take the TCN number for the claim that you are resubmitting and enter it here.
We go on to list many common modifiers in our CMS 1500 Instructions Ebook.
