The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has once again postponed the exact match requirement implementation date “until further notice”. That’s good news for providers. Our nation’s hospitals can continue to best focus their efforts on the COVID-19 outbreak.

As a quick reminder, CMS is requiring that hospitals include the actual service facility address for certain hospital outpatient departments and remote inpatient locations in Loop 2310E of the 837I electronic institutional claims transaction. These addresses must exactly match to an address registered on the hospital’s Medicare 855A enrollment record. Without a set enforcement date, Advis recommends providers continue to update their systems in preparation of that eventuality. Please ensure you are prepared for when the exact match requirement is finally implemented by CMS.
