GLMI would like to remind all agencies that Medicare is requiring that the name of the certifying physician, as well as the name of the physician who signs the plan of care be listed on all electronic and paper bills for dates of service starting on July 1st. If the bill does not contain both of the physician’s names, the billing program will produce an error and not allow users to proceed. Please note that users should complete both fields, even if the certifying physician is the same as the physician that signs the plan of care. The billing program will also verify that the physician(s) has a valid NPI and that the PECOS check box is selected. If not, the system will produce and error.
