Physician Practice Insider, July 28, 2015

On July 2, CMS rescinded Transmittal 1481, dated March 27, 2015, and replaced it with Transmittal 1517 to remove the requirement for report files to be password protected and clarify how files shall be sent to CMS. All other information remains the same. The original transmittal requires Medicare Administrative Contractors to produce a report for each tester that provides the final status of each claim that was submitted.
