I just wanted to put this on CareStream's radar in case you haven't seen it yet. With the new Medicare numbers coming out, Medicare is requiring that we update the Identification Code Qualifier in Data Element NM108 in the 2100 Loop, NM1- Patient Name Segment of the 835 Electronic Remit from HN to MI. The memo doesn't say if it has to be done ON Oct 1 or BY Oct 1, though I get the impression they will be changing it internally up to Oct 1 unless we submit it that way? Either way, could matt.ackerman look into this further so everyone's Medicare claims don't get denied come October? Thanks!!!
