Reassignment to Part A Critical Access Hospitals (CAH) billing under Method II (CAH II)

On November 7, CMS issued a rescind and replace transmittal to: (1) Explain the purpose of this change request, (2) Remove federally qualified health centers and rural health clinics as entities eligible to accept reassignments, and (3) Clarify that Part A reassignments only apply to CAHs billing under Method II (CAH II) Also, since all legacy contractors have now transitioned to MACs, the FIs and Carriers have been unchecked from the business requirements. All other information remains the same.
