In Person – 09/11/18 Reducing Overlapping Claims (For Part B) - A Collaborative Effort Between WPS and NGS


This training is intended for WPS and NGS Part B providers billing on a CMS-1500 or electronic equivalent.  Part B providers will join Part A providers who bill on a UB-04 for an afternoon session.  Please only register for Reducing Overlapping Claims (For Part A) or Reducing Overlapping Claims (For Part B), not both.


Overlapping claims continue to be a top claim rejection for providers. Medicare often receives multiple claims for the same beneficiary with the same or similar dates of service. An overlap occurs when the date of service or billing period of one claim seems to conflict with the date on another claim, indicating that one of the claims may be incorrect. Often, overlapping claims can be prevented by knowing how to properly submit claims in these situations.


WPS GHA and NGS are coming together to provide a unique opportunity for our provider communities. We would like to invite all Part B providers (billing on a CMS-1500) to join us in this joint endeavor to offer an educational event like no other. 


During this half day event, Part B providers will join Part A providers while the MACs go over the most common reasons for overlapping claims and steps providers can take in an overlapping claim situation. Some of the topics to be covered include:


  • 3/1 day payment window
  • End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Consolidated Billing
  • Home Health Consolidated Billing
  • What Place of Service (POS) Part B providers should use
  • Steps you can take to resolve overlapping claim issues with another provider


Take advantage of this unique opportunity to collaborate and learn with the MACs processing your claims and help reduce your workload.


Please Note: Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Consolidated Billing is the number one cause of overlapping claim issues. We will be hosting a full day event devoted to just this topic the following day. We encourage you to register for both days; however, it is not a requirement.


Registration will close 09/05/18 or when capacity of 60 is met.


Time of Event:
: 12:00 - 12:30 PM
Event: 12:30 - 4:00 PM ET


Training materials will be offered only in an electronic format. Registrants are responsible for printing and bringing their own handouts. To access, choose the Additional References tab in the Learning Center course 1 week prior to the event.
