Note: CMS revised this article to reflect an updated CR 11945. The CR revision added part of a sentence that had been left out of manual Section 20.2.2 of the Medicare Secondary Payer Manual, which is part of the CR. The correction of the CR had no impact on the substance of the article. In the article, CMS revised the CR release date, transmittal number, and the web address of the CR. All other information remains the same.

CR 11945 informs you that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is modifying and streamlining the model admission questions for providers to ask Medicare beneficiaries or authorized representatives upon admission or start of care. No other updates have been made to the hospital admissions or billing process.
