Co-management claims: DATE ASSUMED CARE

Re: KIP 10.3.36

Co-management claims require you to attach the date you assumed care of the patient to each claim.

An example of this type of claim would be an optometrist who begins caring for a patient who had a surgical procedure by an ophthalmologist.

If you send the claims electronically, you will need to add the Date Assumed Care to your claim.

To enter the DATE ASSUMED CARE, open the invoice entry screen and click the SUPPLEMENTAL DATA tab. You will see the field COMGT CLAIMS: DATE ASSUMED CARE field.

Be sure to click OK to save the invoice after entering this date.

Paper claims require this data to be entered in BOX 19 of the CMS-1500 claim form.
