Below information from National Government Services, Inc. for current NGS customers.
As of April 24, 2015, National Government Services (NGS) J6 has created a dedicated mailbox for providers to submit their cost report information electronically. Sending the electronic cost report files and any other electronic support files will save on postage costs and also save valuable time in the acceptance of the cost report as well.
Electronic copies can be emailed to J6HHA-HospiceMedicareCR (at) anthem.com. The mail box will not allow any files with the extension of .exe to be transmitted to it. If your PI file (print image) has the extension .exe, double click on it and it will self-extract into the file you can transmit and will have the proper encryption codes attached to it. If you have any questions, please email J6HHA-HospiceMedicareCR (at) anthem.com.
At this time, it is still necessary to mail in the signed certification page with encryptions and the signed 339 questionnaire. The cost report will still not be deemed as received until NGS receives the signed signatures in the mail.
Providers that have less than $200,000 of Medicare reimbursement may qualify for filing less than a full report. For more information, please go to the cost report section of the NGS website at www.ngsmedicare.com. Low or no cost report submissions cannot have a balance, if you wish to claim bad debts, vaccines or other cost reimbursed items you will need to complete the full cost report and acquire vendor approved software. If you still have questions, please send them to J6HHA-HospiceMedicareCR (at) anthem.com.
Please do not send any PHI information to the above e-mail boxes. Any PHI information should be sent either through Connex or regular mail and password protected in a separate email.
