The Region B RAC Contractor revealed their website capabilities while posting 3 CMS approved issues for automated review in Region B states of Indiana, Michgan and Minnesota. This time the previously CMS approved issue of “Untimed Code” for rehab is not among them. Visit the site for CGI to see how it is formatted. Notice that on the page where the issues are posted that there are links directly to the CMS references.
While rehab providers in the three states can breathe a sign of relief, consider it temporary, and strive to review your claims history for billing of untimed codes in units greater than one. Now that this issue is published other reviewers, including the CERT contractor, and the Program Safeguard Contractors will be on the outlook.
