Dedicated Mailbox Set Up for J6 Home Health & Hospice Providers.
Medicare Administrative Contractor NGS recently created a dedicated mailbox for J6 providers to submit their cost report information electronically. All J6 Home health and Hospice providers should receive a copy of the following letter in the mail, if they have not already.
NGS noted in the letter that it will still be necessary for providers to mail in their signed certification page with encryptions and the signed 339 questionnaire. Your cost report will still not be deemed as received until NGS receives the signed signatures in the mail.
HEALTHCAREfirst will continue to monitor if the other Medicare Administrative Contractors CGS and Palmetto GBA plan on following suit.
CGS’ website contains the following current FAQ regarding cost reports.
