what is claim certification in Medical billing

Claim Certification 

Because an electronic claim cannot be submitted with a signature, the
provider’s endorsed signature on the back of the remittance check issued by the
Medicaid fiscal agent takes the place of a signature on a paper claim form. It
acknowledges the submission of the claim and the receipt of the payment for
the claim. It certifies that the claim is in compliance with the conditions stated
on the back of the paper claim form, and with all federal and state laws.

Any provider who utilizes the electronic funds transfer system is certifying with
each use of the system that the claim(s) for which the provider is being paid is
in compliance with the provisions found on the back of the paper claim form and
with all federal and state laws.

questions about electronic claims submission. The fiscal agent’s EDI Technical
