Clinics and Other Outpatient Facility Services Handbook : 2. Birthing Center : 2.4 Claims Filing and Reimbursement

2.4 Claims Filing and Reimbursement
2.4.1
Claims for birthing center services must be submitted to TMHP in an approved electronic format or on the CMS-1500 paper claim form. Providers may purchase CMS-1500 paper claim forms from the vendor of their choice. TMHP does not supply the forms.
When completing a CMS-1500 paper claim form, providers must include all required information on the claim, as TMHP does not key any information from attachments. Superbills or itemized statements are not accepted as claim supplements.
Refer to:
Section 3: TMHP Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) (Vol. 1, General Information) for information on electronic claims submissions.
Section 6: Claims Filing (Vol. 1, General Information) for general information about claims filing.
Subsection 6.5, “CMS‑1500 Paper Claim Filing Instructions” in Section 6, “Claims Filing” (Vol. 1, General Information) for instructions on completing paper claims. Blocks that are not referenced are not required for processing by TMHP and may be left blank.
