A hospice claim was received; however, no Notice of Election (NOE) is on file.
Before submitting the hospice claim, use FISS Option 12 to verify the NOE has been submitted and processed. To be considered processed, an NOE must appear in status/location P B9997.
Example: The NOE has been submitted, but did not process; it appears in the return to provider (RTP), status/location T B9997.
- Never submit a NOE and claim on the same day
- Using FISS Option 12 (Claims), verify the “Admit” date on the NOE and claim are the same
