Billing reminders and updates

The HSN issues regular billing updates. Please review these updates carefully. They may impact how your facility bills HSN now or in the future!

Please share these updates with anyone who assists your facility in billing, including your billing intermediaries. Each reminder or update indicates the effective date for these guidelines and which 837 category they impact (i.e., 837I, 837P, or 837D).
