    Hi Shon,

    I understand that you're seeing the error codes: 163 and 164 when you're trying to submit electronic claims. The reason why your Florida Medicare claims are being rejected is because your Claim Filing Enrollment for Florida Medicare hasn't been accepted yet. I have asked our clearinghouse check on the status of your Claim Filing Enrollment with this payer, which means they will manually review your enrollment and contact the payer for an update on the status of the enrollment.

    Please keep in mind that we can't guarantee a completion date because that's still ultimately up to the payer. Please refer to the following article for a detailed explanation of the process: Average payer enrollment approval times

    We will email you when your enrollment has been completed or if there are any other steps needed from you in order to complete this process. However, please let me know if you hear back directly from the payer on this enrollment; I will do the same on my end. If you do receive a notice from the payer stating that they've accepted your enrollment, please share it with me and I'll make sure we get it to our clearinghouse. Sometimes payers will update clinicians directly but not our clearinghouse.

    After your Claim Filing Enrollment is accepted by the insurance payer, you'll be able to file electronic claims through your SimplePractice account. 

    In the meantime, I recommend that you continue to file your claims to this payer outside of SimplePractice so you don't experience any further delay. 

    Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any further questions.

    Why was the Medicare claim rejected. This is the notation I got.

    Rejected due to the following error: Insured or Subscriber's contract/member number. (164)

     

    I have been accepted with Medicare for a while now. Also I ma fully enrolled with EDISS and Eligible and Simple Practice has authorized me to move forward and bill.
