Claim Reopening Gateway: History correction feature is here

The “history correction” feature is here! The new feature allows you to easily reprocess claims that previously denied based on the beneficiary’s file and due to the file being updated, can now be considered for payment. This feature is specific to file updates for the beneficiary’s Medicare Part B entitlement, Medicare secondary payer, health maintenance organization/Medicare Advantage plan, and hospice periods. This feature also allows a claim to be reprocessed that is denied for Medically Unlikely Edits due to a claim being submitted to Medicare twice in error. As a reminder, the gateway is a free, web-based application that allows for automated submission of claim corrections with no enrollment process.
