Community Health Plan of Washington is updating our claims system in May 2017 with the current Date Sensitive Code Editor (DSC) for all Medicare inpatient services.

The DSC editor is part of the Optum claims editing system for facility claims. This update will ensure facility-based rules are followed from sources such as the Definitions of Medicare Code Editor (MCE). Please go to FY 2017 Final Rule and Correction Notice Data Files on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services website for the MCE.
