Regulatory News Topic
On March 9, 2012, CMS issued Internet Only Manual 100-04 (Medicare Claims Processing Manual) Transmittal 2423, Change Request 7751. This instruction informs the Fiscal Intermediaries (FIs), A/B MACs, and the Fiscal Intermediary Standard System (FISS) that the I/OCE was updated for April 1, 2012. The I/OCE routes all institutional outpatient claims (which includes non-OPPS hospital claims) through a single integrated OCE which eliminates the need to update, install, and maintain two separate OCE software packages on a quarterly basis.
