Older Americans Month

May 10, 2023

“Older Americans should be able to live, work, and participate in their communities with dignity,” President Biden said in his Proclamation on Older Americans Month 2023. Celebrated annually in May, Older Americans Month is a great time to ensure our seniors have affordable and quality healthcare to live life to the fullest possible, which means now is also an excellent time for providers with private patients to check their inventory of Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) forms to be sure their patients receive affordable healthcare.

The Health Insurance Claims Forms (CMS-1500) is the standard claim form used by all non-institutional medical providers or suppliers to bill Medicare carriers and durable medical equipment regional carriers (DMERCs) when a provider qualifies for a waiver from the Administrative Simplification Compliance Act (ASCA) requirement for electronic submission of claims. It is also used for billing of some Medicaid State Agencies.

The Administration for Community Living theme for Older Americans Month 2023 is Aging Unbound. Let’s join them in honoring our seniors in promoting “flexible thinking about aging – and how we all benefit when older adults remain engaged, independent, and included” in our communities.
