      RE:             2004 Billing Schedule


      Attached is the 2004 Billing Schedule for Nursing Home Services. Please note the billing deadlines
      are scheduled earlier in the month.

      Claims must be received by the fiscal agent on or before the billing deadline. Electronic claims
      submitted prior to and including March 8, 2004 (February dates of service and before), will be
      processed by ACS. Unisys will be processing claims beginning March 29, 2004. The last day for
      accepting paper claims, including adjustments, will be Wednesday, March 3, 2004. Claims received
      after the monthly billing deadline will be processed in the following billing cycle (i.e., the following
      month). There will be no exception made to these dates.

      It is strongly recommended that each facility submit claims as early as possible each month so
      delays in reimbursement will not occur.

      Feel free to call if you have questions.
