MIHMS Anesthesia Claims Submission

MIHMS has been updated so providers can report anesthesia minutes for professional claim submissions via Direct Data Entry (DDE). The DDE screen will display the total number of minutes entered (field located next to the units field) as well as the number of units, in the claim total box.

Minutes can also be submitted using the ANSI 837 electronic claim format. To submit anesthesia minutes, element SV103 must contain a value of ‘MJ’ (minutes) with the number of minutes residing in SV104. The minutes should be submitted as whole numbers (1 through 9999).

Claims and claims adjustments can now be submitted using either the DDE Portal or the ANSI 837 electronic claim format.

Paper claims can NOT be used to submit anesthesia claims at this time. We will notify you as soon this is possible.

Providers should contact Provider Services at 1-866-690-5585 for any questions.
