(1) Types of services. The services must be -

(i) Covered services, as specified in part 409 or part 410 of this chapter; or

(2) Sources of services. The services must have been furnished by a provider, nonparticipating hospital, or supplier that was, at the time it furnished the services, qualified to have payment made for them.

(3) Beneficiary of services. Except as provided in § 409.68 of this chapter, the services must have been furnished while the individual was eligible to have payment made for them.

(5) Claim for payment. The provider, supplier, or beneficiary, as appropriate, must file a claim that includes or makes reference to a request for payment, in accordance with subpart C of this part.

(6) Sufficient information. The provider, supplier, or beneficiary, as appropriate, must furnish to the intermediary or carrier sufficient information to determine whether payment is due and the amount of payment.
