Thought this might be helpful... I've added the authorization # of 88888888888 to the authorization field for our MA payer and submitted claims for Direct Access services, and they show as set to pay. I know from talking with others there were ideas around adding a new payer in order to accommodate one payer that can include authorization numbers on claims (Rule 25 clients with SA #s) and a separate payer that can exclude authorization numbers on claims (Direct Access clients)..
DAANES authorization numbers default to 8888888888 and using that on claims seems like it will work, allowing one MA payer, where Rule 25 clients can have actual SA #s (as they always did) and Direct Access clients can have the default authorization number of 88888888888.
