E. Sterilization and Tubal Ligation Consent Form – DHMH 2989 75
INTRODUCTION This manual was prepared to provide proper billing procedures and instructions for Maryland Medicaid providers who bill using the CMS-1500 form. This includes Certified Nurse Midwives, Certified Nurse Practitioners, Certified Registered Nurse, Anesthetists, Free-Standing Clinics, Physicians, Podiatrists and DME/DMS providers.
The Medical Assistance Program has made numerous revisions to the billing procedures for all Medicaid Programs in order to adhere to the standards created under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). As a result of the requirement for standardization of code sets and forms, Maryland Medicaid has replaced all local procedure codes to nationally accepted codes. This includes standardization in the way providers transmit claims electronically.
