Beginning in April 2019, CMS started returning OPPS claims where the Hospital Outpatient Department address on the claim does not match the exact address appearing on the hospital’s Medicare Form 855A.

These include claims returned for using “Ste.” instead of “Suite” or “St.” instead of “Street.”

Be sure the practice locations listed on your Medicare Form 855A are correct and current and that any claims submitted exactly match the address on file with CMS.

For more information, please contact Thomas N. Hutchinson or Meghan M. Linvill McNab.
