CMS OKs Electronic Filing of NOEs

Effective January 1, 2018, hospice providers will be able to submit the Notice of Election (NOE) for each patient electronically, using the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). This change will virtually eliminate the manual filing of the NOE using the Direct Data Entry (DDE) process, and will help to reduce errors that have occurred in the past with DDE submission.
