Following up on an item shared earlier this month, Medicare has resolved its issue with beneficiary entitlement date errors causing incorrect claim denials. Last week, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services approved a corrective process for impacted Medicare Part-B claims, including those filed by physicians.
Medicare administrative contractors (MACs) will reprocess previously denied Part-B claims affected by this issue. The MACs began reprocessing claims and making adjustments early last week. Physicians and others who file Part-B claims don’t need to take any further action.
