Here's the question:
For a medicaid case what two blocks on the CMS-1500 (08-05) form need to be completed for emergency services?

The story line is a lady has lab verified ruptured appendix, immediate surgery is recommended. No prior auth was gotten.

Please help with the two blocks for emergency services thing. No one explains this, just expected to figure it out. Thank you if you can help!
