What is the best way to tell if CGS has received my claims?
There are a few options for accomplishing this.
Use the CGS Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system to get in touch with someone. The IVR can tell you whether your claim is in process, on the payment floor, or paid/denied. 1-866-290-4036 is the IVR number.
To double-check these details, go to CGS’s website, myCGS (you have to be a registered user to do this).
Your clearinghouse/submission software may contain information or confirm electronically submitting claims if your office digitally processes claims.
Why is it taking more than 14 days for my electronic Medicare claim submissions to be processed?
CGS has 14 days from the date of filing to release a claim for payment (this involves the day of submission and 13 days after that date). The payment floor is another name for this. According to the CMS Medicare Claims Processing Manual, Medicare Administrative Contractors, including CGS, have up to 30 days to process clean claims without paying interest (Pub. 100-04, chapter 1, section 22.214.171.124).
A clean claim does not have any circumstances or defects that would prevent the payment from being completed on time. In other terms, it is accurate, complete, and has all of the information required by CGS to manage it.
Why did CGS abandon LCDs?
It’s becoming more challenging to figure out which diagnostic codes are approved.
The LCD process was changed as part of the 21st Century Cures Act, a CMS requirement. Medicare Contractors must segregate insurance coverage data from payment details to comply with the 21st Century Cures Act and the Medicare Program Integrity Manual (PIM) Chapter 13 External download. A separate article covers diagnosis codes and other billing information.
