MLN Updates Medicare Claim Submission Guidelines
A September 2011 “Medicare Claim Submission Guidelines” fact sheet is now available on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) website.
This Medicare Learning Network® (MLN) fact sheet offers providers and suppliers up-to-date guidance on how to:

- File Medicare claims
- Opt out of Medicare and arrange private contracts with Medicare beneficiaries
