RE:          Novitas Solutions Publishes New Ambulance Billing Rules

Novitas Solutions, the Medicare Administrative Contractor covering Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas and the District of Columbia has issued their future Local Coverage Determination documents in anticipation of the October 1, 2015 implementation date for the new ICD-10 coding initiative.

These documents*, Future of Local Coverage Determination (LCD) for Ground Ambulance (L35162) and Future Local Coverage Article (LCA) for Ground Ambulance (A54574) provide insight into the new rules for Medicare ambulance billing that will take effect October 1, 2015 and thereafter.

*Note: In order to access these documents, you must accept the licensing information provided on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) website.

Guaranteed cash flow during transition.
