CMS Releases Claim Hold

Today, CMS directed contractors to lift the hold that affected claims with dates-of-service June 1 or after.  These claims were being held until June 17, now contractors are to begin processing claims on a first-in/first-out basis. 

Per this release from CMS:

Congress continues to debate the elimination of the negative update that took effect June 1, 2010.  The CMS is hopeful that Congressional action will be taken to avert the negative update.  We continue to monitor Congressional actions, and if Congress changes the negative update that is currently in effect, we are prepared to act expeditiously to make the appropriate changes to Medicare claims processing systems.
