Mary Madison, RN, RAC-CT, CDP
Clinical Consultant – Briggs Healthcare

On May 15, 2023, CMS issued Transmittal 12037 with this message (in red ink): Transmittal 12032 issued May 10, 2023, is being rescinded and replaced by Transmittal 12037, dated May 15, 2023, to make a minor clarification (that claims will be adjusted/denied if an improper payment is identified) and remove the confidential designation. All other information remains the same. (I provided a blog on May 4th to announce the original transmittal. Transmittal 12032 was up briefly – blink of an eye – before being marked CONFIDENTIAL and removed from the CMS Transmittal website.)
