The purpose of this field is to ensure compliance with the CPO requirement that the beneficiary must be receiving covered HHA or Hospice services during the billing period. There can be only one CPO provider number per claim, and no other services but CPO physician services are to be reported on the claim. This field is only present on the non-DMERC processed carrier claim.
