Starting May 1, 2013, Medicare administrator Novitas Solutions will return all faxed or mailed documentation that is not submitted with approved Novitas forms for:
- Information submitted when Novitas requests additional documentation via its Additional Documentation Response letter,
- Medical records requested during a post-pay review; or
- The submission of PWK (paperwork) documentation to support an electronic claim.
Note that only the PWK forms are located on the Novitas website (on the Electronic Billing Center website under Reference Materials/Publications). Notivas will send you the other forms when requesting additional documentation.
Read this bulletin from Novitas for details.
