Reminder: Special Instructions for October Billing

As previously reported in The Source, the Department of Medicaid (ODM) has shared special instructions for October billing, which will require providers to bill two different rates on October claims: those for October 1-16, and another for October 17-31. On October 23, ODM uploaded the October 17 rates to the MITS portal. 

Nursing facilities are encouraged to share this information with their hospice partners, who may not be aware of the rate change.
