Rejected Medicare Claims May Have a Linkage Problem

With the implementation of the HIPAA 5010 standard for submitting electronic claims, some practices are running into a “linkage problem” with Medicare claims, which results in rejected claims.

This error will appear on your 277 Claims Acknowledgement as a 496 edit (submitter not approved for electronic claim submissions on behalf of this entity) in the message “A8:496:85.” TrailBlazer Health Enterprises says this edit can result from one of two types of errors, which you can correct on your end.
