Ambulance claim billing guidelines

Billing Guidelines

• Use the “GM” modifier to identify a multiple transport.

• Submit documentation to specify the particulars of a multiple transport. The documentation must include the total number of patients transported in the vehicle at the same time and the health insurance claim numbers for each Medicare beneficiary.

• Submit the charges applicable to the appropriate service rendered to each beneficiary and the total mileage for the trip.

• Submit all associated Medicare claims for the multiple transports within a reasonable number of days of submitting the first claim.

• If there is only one Medicare beneficiary in the multiple patient transports, the supplier must document this.
