    Hospital discharge notice The An Important Message From Medicare About Your Rights form, along with additional information can be obtained from Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

    Notice of Medicare Non-Coverage (NOMNC) forms

    CMS requires the Notice of Medicare Non-Coverage (NOMNC) form to be issued for every discontinuation of SNF level of care, two days prior to the end of services. The NOMNC form informs the member of the date he or she meets criteria for SNF care and describes the member’s appeal rights if they disagree with that decision.

    It is important to use the correct form based upon the member’s coverage and location of services being rendered. Use of another health plan’s notification form for Regence members is not considered valid by CMS. The NOMNC should be faxed to Regence at 1 (855) 240-6498 as soon as possible after the form is signed.

    Members have the right to a fast track review by a Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) if they appeal the discontinuation of their SNF coverage.
