Medicaid Provider Payment Suspension

DMA shall suspend payment to all N.C. Medicaid providers that currently have outstanding (i.e., thirty days or more past due) balances owed as a result of DMA actions to recoup assessments, overpayments or improper payments until such outstanding balances are either paid in full or the provider enters into an approved payment plan, in accordance with N.C. Session Law 2009-451, Section 10.73A (a) (b) (c), which states:

SECTION 10.73A.(a) The Department of Health and Human Services may suspend payment to any North Carolina Medicaid provider against whom the Division of Medical Assistance has instituted a recoupment action, termination of the N.C. Medicaid Administrative Participation Agreement, or referral to the Medicaid Fraud Investigations Unit of the North Carolina Attorney General's Office. The suspension of payment shall be in the amount under review and shall continue during the pendency of any appeal filed at the Department, the Office of Administrative Hearings, or State or federal courts. If the provider appeals the final agency decision and the decision is in favor of the provider, the Department shall reimburse the provider for payments for all valid claims suspended during the period of appeal.

SECTION 10.73A.(b) Entering into a Medicaid Administrative Participation Agreement with the Department does not give rise to any property or liberty right in continued participation as a provider in the North Carolina Medicaid program.

SECTION 10.73A.(c) The Department shall not make any payment to a provider unless and until all outstanding Medicaid recoupments, assessments, or overpayments have been repaid in full to the Department, together with any applicable penalty and interest charges, or unless and until the provider has entered into an approved payment plan.

For additional information on a repayment plan, please contact DMA Budget Management at 919-855-4140.

Risperidone, Long Acting, 0.5 mg (Risperdal Consta, HCPCS Code J2794):  Additional Coverage Guidelines

Effective with date of service May 15, 2009, the N.C. Medicaid Program added the following ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes to the coverage of risperdone, long acting, to align with the recent FDA approval for the indication of bipolar disease, type 1.  Medicaid already covers Risperdal Consta for the indication of schizophrenia.  The diagnoses that were added for coverage of bipolar disease are:

  • 296.0 (bipolar 1 disorder, single manic episode)
  • 296.4 (bipolar 1 disorder, most recent episode [or current] manic)
  • 296.5 (bipolar 1 disorder, most recent episode [or current] depressed)
  • 296.6 (bipolar 1 disorder, most recent episode [or current] mixed)
  • 296.7 (bipolar 1 disorder, most recent episode [or current] unspecified)

Providers who received denials for J2794 on claims submitted with a diagnosis of bipolar disease, type 1, for dates of service on and after May 15, 2009, may file the denied charges as a new claim.  Refer to the March 2009 Special Bulletin, National Drug Code Implementation, Phase III, for additional instructions.

Updated EOB Code Crosswalk to HIPAA Standard Codes

The list of standard national codes used on the Electronic Remittance Advice (ERA) has been cross-walked to EOB codes as an informational aid to adjudicated claims listed on the Remittance and Status Report (RA).  An updated version of the list is available on DMA’s HIPAA web page.

With the implementation of standards for electronic transactions mandated by HIPAA, providers now have the option to receive an ERA in addition to the paper version of the RA.

The EOB codes that providers currently receive on a paper RA are not used on the ERA.  Because the EOB codes on the paper RA provide a greater level of detail on claim denials, all providers will continue to receive the paper version of the RA, even if they choose to receive the ERA transaction.  The crosswalk is current as of the date of publication.  Providers will be notified of changes to the crosswalk through future general Medicaid bulletins.

New Option for Submitting Recipient Commercial Insurance Information Updates

Federal regulations (42 CFR 433.138 and 139) require Medicaid to be the payer of last resort.  For this reason, providers must determine if a recipient has commercial health insurance coverage.  If the recipient’s eligibility information indicates a commercial health insurance carrier, the provider must bill the carrier before billing Medicaid.

Occasionally, a carrier has terminated coverage but the recipient’s eligibility information still indicates commercial health insurance.  If the insurance information is not updated, a provider’s claim will deny for third party liability when the claim is submitted to Medicaid.  To prevent this denial and to allow the claim to be processed, the provider must submit a request for an update to the recipient’s health insurance information.  The request must be completed and the eligibility information must be updated before the provider’s claim can be processed.

Medicaid providers now have the option of submitting requests for updates to a recipient’s commercial insurance information electronically via secured Internet connection.  The existing paper Health Insurance Information Referral Form (DMA-2057) will continue to be available to providers who choose that process, but electronic submission is preferred by DMA. 

The new electronic option expedites the processing of commercial insurance information updates and eliminates the need to attach a paper claim to the referral form.  Providers can now submit claims electronically.  Because electronic requests are completed within two  business days, providers will be able to submit claims immediately upon receipt of the confirmation e-mail from the vendor managing this update process, hms.

To submit a request, follow these easy steps:

  • Complete information in all fields:
    • Recipient Information
    • Provider Contact Information
  • Click Submit Query and the information will be sent over a secure channel to hms.

The provider will receive an email from hms indicating what action has been taken on the insurance information received.

North Carolina Medicaid Preferred Drug List

DMA established a N.C. Medicaid Preferred Drug List (PDL) on March 15, 2010.  The N.C. General Assembly [Session Law 2009-451, Sections 10.66(a)-(d)] authorized DMA to establish the PDL in order to obtain better prices for covered outpatient drugs through supplemental rebates.  All therapeutic drug classes for which the drug manufacturer provides a supplemental rebate are considered for inclusion on the list with the exception of medications used for the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). 

Initially there will not be any changes in the drugs that are currently covered.  In the future, selected therapeutic drug classes will be reviewed by DMA and the Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee of the N.C. Physicians Advisory Group.  Specific drug products within the selected therapeutic drug classes will be “preferred” based on therapeutic effectiveness, safety and clinical outcomes.  Generally, these drugs will not require prior authorization (PA) unless there are other clinical PA requirements such as step therapy or quantity limits. 

“Non-preferred” drugs (drug products not included in the therapeutic drug classes listed on the PDL) will be available if prior authorization criteria are met.  The prior authorization process will be the same process as it is today.  If a prescriber deems that the patient’s clinical status necessitates therapy with a “non-preferred” drug, the prescriber will be responsible for initiating a prior authorization request.

For therapeutic drug classes that do not appear on the PDL, nothing has changed.  Prescribers can prescribe drugs in these classes as in the past, unless existing prior authorization criteria exists.

The PDL is posted on DMA’s Outpatient Pharmacy Program web page.

Enrollment of Medicare/Medicaid Recipients into Community Care of North Carolina/Carolina ACCESS

The N.C. Medicaid Program is making a targeted effort to enroll recipients who are dually eligible for Medicaid and Medicare into Community Care of North Carolina/Carolina ACCESS (CCNC/CA).  Medicaid recipients who are Medicare-eligible are an optional group for enrollment into CCNC/CA and can choose to opt out of enrollment at any time.

During January and February, letters were mailed to all dually eligible recipients seen between January 2009 and December 2009 by a provider who is participating as a CCNC/CA primary care provider.  The letter informed these recipients that they were being enrolled as a CCNC/CA member with the last primary care provider that they had seen during this time frame.  Recipients were informed to contact their county department of social services if they did not wish to be enrolled with the provider identified in their letter.

If you are a CCNC/CA provider who is interested in enrolling a dually eligible Medicaid/Medicare patient that you are seeing in your practice, complete the CCNC/CA Enrollment Form for Medicaid Recipients.

When enrolling recipients, you must inform them of their right to opt out or to choose another provider.  They must also be informed of their right to disenroll from the program at any time.  Disenrolling from the program does not terminate their Medicaid benefits. 

Providers who are not currently participating in CCNC/CA as a primary care provider who would like to have more information about becoming a provider with the program may contact the managed care consultant serving their county.  The list of consultants can be found on the DMA CCNC/CA web page.

Helpful Hints to Ensure a Provider Enrollment Application is Processed Without Delay

On April 20, 2009, CSC took over the provider enrollment, credentialing, and verification functions from DMA’s Provider Services unit.  In the past six months, the Provider EVC Center has handled over 12,000 applications from providers who applied for participation in the North Carolina Medicaid Program.

Most applications move quickly through the EVC process but occasionally an application is deemed incomplete and processing is suspended until the issue is resolved with the provider.  Our goal is to ensure your application is processed in a timely fashion to allow you to become a participating provider with the N.C. Medicaid Program.  

To avoid delays in processing provider applications

  1. Complete the W-9 form correctly.
  2. Provide all of the ownership and managing employee information in the Managing Relationships section of the application.
  3. Complete all of the required fields on the application.
  4. Provide all of the titles and signatures where required on the application.
  5. Review all of the required supplemental documents before the application is submitted.
  6. Verify that the signer is an authorized agent for the provider.
  7. Submit the correct type of application.
  8. Submit the most recent version of the application.  The most current version is located on the NC Tracks Provider Enrollment web page.
  9. When submitting a request for a change in provider status, verify that the change should be requested using a Medicaid Provider Change Form.  Some changes require the provider to submit a new Provider Enrollment Application but most only require the Medicaid Provider Change Form.  Refer to the Report a Change in Provider Status section of the NC Tracks website.

To assist providers in preparing their enrollment application, the Provider Qualifications and Requirements Checklist is available on the NC Tracks Provider Enrollment web page.

Flu Testing:  CPT Code 87804

The December 2009 Medicaid bulletin article titled Flu Testing:  CPT Codes 87400 and 87804 instructed providers to bill two units of CPT code 87804 (infectious agent antigen detection by immunoassay with direct optical observation; influenza) with the QW modifier for flu testing.  However, claims have continued to deny.  Providers who wish to bill for two influenza tests should now bill CPT code 87804:  one unit with the QW modifier and one unit with QW modifier along with 76 modifier.

Providers who have billed more than one flu test on the same day of service and received a denial with EOB 5201 (Diagnostic procedure allowed once per day unless billed with appropriate modifier) or EOB 7701 (Combination of billed modifiers is invalid, please review and resubmit with the correct billing combination) may correct and resubmit the denied claim for payment if they have filed their claims timely.

North Carolina Electronic Claims Submission/Recipient Eligibility Verification Web Tool:  Medicare Indicators

The NCECS Web Tool provides recipient eligibility information.  A recipient’s Medicare information, including enrollment for Part A, Part B or both, is available.  Refer to the illustrations below for examples of the Medicare information.

If the health insurance claim (HIC) number is displayed on the screen without showing Part A and/or Part B coverage, it may mean that the recipient is not eligible for Medicare.  In this case, providers should use another method to verify Medicare eligibility.

For additional information on verifying recipient eligibility, refer to the Basic Medicaid Billing Guide and the January 2010 Medicaid Bulletin.  For detailed information on the NCECSWeb Tool, refer to the September 2009 Special Bulletin, North Carolina Electronic Claims Submission/Recipient Eligibility Verification Web Tool Instruction Guide.

DHHS/DMA Program Integrity Contract with Public Consulting Group

Medicaid services are provided to recipients in all 100 North Carolina counties.  In accordance with 42 CFR Part 455, which sets forth requirements for a State fraud detection and investigation program, DMA’s Program Integrity Section investigates Medicaid providers when clinically suspect behaviors or administrative billing patterns indicate potentially abusive or fraudulent activity.

The review of providers of community behavioral health services has presented unique challenges.  These challenges and the related volume of cases have resulted in a backlog that requires immediate attention.  Program Integrity is committed to initiating these reviews and safeguarding against unnecessary or inappropriate use of Medicaid services and against excess payments. 

In accordance with 10A NCAC 22F.0202, a Preliminary Investigation shall be conducted on all complaints received or aberrant practices detected, until it is determined that there are sufficient findings to warrant a full investigation; or there is sufficient evidence to warrant referring the case for civil and/or criminal fraud action; or there is insufficient evidence to support the allegation(s) and the case may be closed.

Effective January 28, 2010, Public Consulting Group (PCG),  will assist the DMA’s Program Integrity Behavioral Health Review Section in eliminating the backlog of cases and prospectively maintaining a steady state of case reviews, preventing a future backlog of cases from accumulating.  For assigned cases, PCG will absorb the full scale of operations, beginning with the receipt of a case file, conducting the clinical review, establishing a statistically valid claim review sample for review, and extrapolating these findings to calculate the recoupment.

PCG will initiate contact with the provider, inform the provider of the post payment review process requirements, and work closely with the provider and DMA.  PCG will advise the provider where and how to submit records for the review, and will address provider questions regarding the post-payment review process.   If the provider is out of compliance, a recoupment letter shall be forwarded to the provider in the amount of the overpayment.  The provider will have reconsideration and appeals rights if the provider does not agree with the findings of the review.  Reconsideration and appeal rights instructions will be sent out with the recoupment letter. 

If the preliminary investigation supports the conclusion of possible fraud, the case shall be referred to the appropriate law enforcement agency for a full investigation.

C1 Esterase Inhibitor (Human) Injectable, 10 Units (Berinert, HCPCS Code J3590):  Revised Billing Guidelines

Billing guidelines for the injectable drug C1 esterase inhibitor were published in the February 2010 Medicaid Bulletin and indicated that billing with HCPCS code J0598 applied to both Cinryze and Berinert.  The article is being republished to document that the use of HCPCS code J3590 for C1 esterase inhibitor must be used to bill for Berinert.  Refer to the article on Cinryze for guidelines on billing for Cinryze.

Effective with date of service January 1, 2010, the N.C. Medicaid Program covers C1 esterase inhibitor (human) injectable (Berinert) for use in the Physician’s Drug Program when billed with HCPCS code J3590 (unclassified biologics).  Berinert is available as single-use vials for reconstitution containing 500 units of lyophilized concentrate with 10 ml of diluent per vial.

Berinert is a plasma-derived C1 esterase inhibitor (human) indicated for the treatment of acute abdominal or facial attacks of hereditary angioedema (HAE) in adult and adolescent patients.

Treatment with Berinert should be through intravenous injections of 20 units per kg of body weight at a rate of 4 ml per minute.

For Medicaid Billing

  • The ICD-9-CM diagnosis code required when billing for Berinert is 277.6 (other deficiencies of circulating enzymes – hereditary angioedema).
  • Providers must bill Berinert with HCPCS code J3590 (unclassified biologics).
  • Providers must indicate the number of HCPCS units used.
  • One Medicaid unit of coverage is 10 units. Berinert is supplied as a single-use vial; therefore, billing of a whole vial, including wastage, is permitted.  The maximum reimbursement rate, per 10 units, is $35.92.  The maximum reimbursement rate, per single-use vial containing 500 units, is $1,795.75.
  • Providers must bill with the 11-digit National Drug Code (NDC) and appropriate NDC units.  When calculating the NDC units used, the drug in its original state must be considered, NOT the reconstituted amount. The NDC units for Berinert should be reported as “units.”  If billing for the entire single-dose vial of Berinert, report the NDC units as “UN1.”  If the drug was purchased under the 340-B drug pricing program, place a “UD” modifier in the modifier field for that drug detail.
  • Refer to the March 2009 Special Bulletin, National Drug Code Implementation, Phase III, for additional instructions.
  • Providers must bill their usual and customary charge.

The new fee schedule for the Physician’s Drug Program is available on DMA’s Fee Schedule web page.

Effective with date of service January 1, 2010, the N.C. Medicaid Program covers C1 esterase inhibitor (human) (Cinryze), for use in the Physician’s Drug Program when billed with HCPCS code J0598.  Cinryze is available as 8-ml single-use vials with approximately 500 units of lyophilized powder per vial.

Cinryze is indicated for routine prophylaxis against angioedema attacks in adolescent and adult patients with hereditary angioedema (HAE).  Cinryze is a replacement product, working on one’s own natural C1 inhibitor to regulate clotting and inflammatory reaction that, when impaired, can lead to tissue swelling.

The recommended dosage of Cinryze is 1,000 units (2 vials) of Cinryze administered intravenously every
3 or 4 days.  Cinryze is administered at an injection rate of 1 ml per minute.

For Medicaid Billing

  • The ICD-9-CM diagnosis code required for billing Cinryze is 277.6 (other deficiencies of circulating enzymes, hereditary angioedema).
  • Providers must bill Cinryze with HCPCS code J0598.
  • Providers must indicate the number of HCPCS units.
  • One Medicaid unit of coverage is 10 units.  Providers may bill for an entire single-use vial.  The maximum reimbursement rate, per 10 units, is $41.98.  The maximum reimbursement rate, per single-use vial containing 500 units, is $2,098.99.
  • Providers must bill 11-digit National Drug Codes (NDCs) and appropriate NDC units.  The NDC units for Cinryze should be reported as “units.”  The drug in its original state must be considered, NOT the reconstituted amount.  If billing for the entire single-dose vial, report the NDC units as “UN1.”  If the drug was purchased under the 340-B drug pricing program, place a “UD” modifier in the modifier field for that drug detail.
  • Refer to the March 2009 Special Bulletin, National Drug Code Implementation, Phase III, for additional instructions.
  • Providers must bill their usual and customary charge.

Medical Supplies Provision for Recipients Approved for Private Duty Nursing Services

Home health skilled nursing services are not covered on the same day as private duty nursing (PDN) services.  The PDN nurse must provide all of the nursing care needed in the home for the PDN recipient.  The PDN provider assumes the responsibility for providing medical supplies and billing Medicaid for the supplies as part of the PDN service.  This guideline also applies to CAP/C Nursing (HCPCS code T1000) under the CAP/C program.

Specialized therapies may be provided during the same time period that a PDN recipient is receiving PDN services.

Refer to Section 7.3.1 of Clinical Coverage Policy 3A, Home Health Services.

Clarification on Provision of Medical Supplies for Recipients Without Private Duty Nursing Coverage

Effective September 1, 2009, private duty nursing (PDN) providers can provide incontinent, ostomy, and urological (IOU) medical supplies to any eligible Medicaid recipient regardless of whether the recipient has been approved for PDN services.  Providers were notified of this provision in an article published in the September 2009 Medicaid Bulletin.  This article provides additional information and further clarification of the criteria for providing this service.

The provision of medical supplies to Medicaid recipients without PDN coverage is limited to IOU supplies.  Providers must adhere to the criteria outlined in the September 2009 bulletin article.  Clarification to the criteria for this provision is as follows.

  • The limitations apply to recipients 21 years of age and older.  Supplies for recipients under 21 years of age have no monthly maximum limits.  The monthly limits on these supplies should be based on medical necessity and physician orders as documented in the plan of care.
  • The PDN provider is required to meet all of the home care needs of the PDN-approved recipient when agreeing to provide care for the recipient.  The PDN provider musts determine if it can provide all of the skilled nursing care and medical supplies needed by the recipient prior to accepting a recipient for PDN services.  Home health skilled nursing visits and provision of supplies are not allowed when the recipient is receiving PDN nursing services (see EPSDT exception below).  This provision would include specimen collection for laboratory test (i.e., blood draws).
  • The reference in the September bulletin to a referral to a home health agency for medical needs that exceed the quantity limits pertains to only recipients with no PDN approval and cannot be applied to PDN-approved recipients.

Providers are reminded that under EPSDT, the policy limits do not apply to recipients under 21 years of age.  Services can be provided to these recipients to the extent of medical necessity, or to correct or ameliorate the recipient’s condition as long as all of the EPSDT criteria are met.  A request for coverage under EPSDT to exceed the policy limits is required prior to exceeding the limits.  The request is submitted to DMA using the Non-Covered State Medicaid Plan Services Request Form for Recipients under 21 Years of Age or a letter of medical necessity from the provider that addresses all of the EPSDT criteria.  The EPSDT coverage criteria can be found on the DMA EPSDT web page.

The limitations on the IOU supplies listed below have been increased to allow more flexibility in meeting the medical needs of the recipient.  These limits apply to only the recipients 21 years of age and older regardless of whether they are PDN-approved or non-PDN-approved recipients.

Providers should be cautioned that there is no entitlement for the recipient to receive the maximum quantity available.  The quantity of medical supplies provided should be based solely on medical necessity for each individual recipient.

Outpatient Specialized Therapies Prior Authorization Process:  Post-Payment Validation

Beginning April 2010, The Carolinas Center for Medical Excellence (CCME) will implement post-payment validation on paid therapy claims.  Validation will initially occur for service dates July 1, 2009, through November 30, 2009.  Providers will be notified of recipients selected in the sample and documentation for those recipients, such as the therapy order, evaluation, and progress notes, will be requested.  This documentation will be reviewed for compliance with policy requirements.  If documentation for service dates is found to be non-compliant with policy requirements, recoupment of monies paid will be determined and providers will be notified of overpayment.

An informational power point presentation and additional details about the post-payment validation process are posted on CCME’s prior authorization website, http://www.medicaidprograms.org/nc/therapyservices.  Providers who billed for therapy services between July and November 2009 are encouraged to register for secure web access on CCME’s prior authorization website (http://www.medicaidprograms.org/nc/therapyservices) to view information about the post-payment validation process.

Transition to Annual Authorization for Non-Waiver TCM/DD Services

Effective May 1, 2010, all requests for non-waiver targeted case management services for developmental disabilities will be authorized on an annual schedule rather than the current process of quarterly authorizations.  The annual schedule is based on the recipient’s birth month.  The effective date of the annual authorization period will be the first day of the month following the recipient’s birth month and the end of the authorization period will be the last day of the recipient’s birth month.

Example 1

If the recipient’s birthday is in June, the annual authorization period will be July 1, 2010, through June 30, 2011.

Any request submitted to ValueOptions on, or after, May 1, 2010, will be authorized through the last day of the recipient’s birth month.

Example 2

A request with a start date of May 1, 2010, with the recipient’s birth month of November, will have an authorization period of May 1 through November 30, 2010.

Requests received by ValueOptions prior to May 1, 2010, will be authorized for 90 days.  Prior to the end of the 90-day period, the case manager is to submit a request with an end date of the last day of the recipient’s birth month.

Example 3

A request with a start date of April 1, 2010, with the recipient’s birth month of November will have an authorization period of April 1, 2010, through June 30, 2010.  The case manager will then submit a request, prior to June 30, 2010, with a start date of July 1, 2010, and an end date of November 30, 2010.

Extension of Coverage for Provisionally Licensed Providers Billing Outpatient Behavioral Health Services through the Local Management Entity

The March 2010 Medicaid Bulletin and Implementation Update #70 (on the DMH Enhanced Services Implementation Updates web page) reported on the extension of coverage of provisionally licensed providers delivering outpatient behavioral health services as a reimbursable service under Medicaid and state funds and billed through the Local Management Entity (LME) to June 30, 2011.  This bulletin article listed the HCPCS procedure codes that could be utilized to bill for services delivered by the provisionally licensed individuals.  These codes were codes H0001, H0004, and H0005.  HCPCS procedure code H0031 was inadvertently omitted and should be added to the above list of procedure codes.

Clarification of Suspension of Mandatory Cost Reporting for Rate Adjustments

Effective January 1, 2010, mandatory Medicaid cost reports for the above mentioned providers are suspended until rescinded by the Secretary of the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).  The official DHHS notification can be found on DMA’s Cost Report web page.  Specific questions may be addressed to the contacts identified in the notification.

It is important to note that any outstanding cost reports due prior to December 31, 2009, are due and must be filed with the appropriate DHHS Division.  This suspension is for cost reports only; cost settlements will continue on the filed cost reports for those providers that are part of the cost settlement process.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Should any adult care homes that filed PCS settlement forms due January 31, 2010, ask that these forms be returned and any funds that were paid as a result of the filing of these forms be refunded?
    The memo published suspended the cost reports due on or after January 1, 2010; not the settlements associated with cost reports due on or before December 31, 2009.  Therefore, DMA shall continue the settlement process for adult care home providers whose cost report was due prior to the suspension.  The settlement forms that were due on January 31, 2010, are associated with those cost reports due on or before December 31, 2009, that have not yet been returned.  If the settlement form due on January 31, 2010, showed monies due to DMA, those monies are required to be paid if the provider has not already done so.  For amounts due to DMA as calculated on the settlement forms due January 31, 2010, and have been paid will not be returned to the provider since it was a settlement for the cost report due on December 31, 2009.
  1. For adult care homes that have not filed personal care service settlement forms that were due January 31, 2010, should they file them at this point?
    The memo published suspended the cost reports due on or after January 1, 2010; not the settlements associated with cost reports due on or before December 31, 2009.  Therefore, DMA shall continue the settlement process for adult care home providers whose cost report was due prior to the suspension.  If a provider has not sent DMA the settlement form associated with the cost report due on or before December 31, 2009, they should do so now.
  1. How will the State settle future personal care services payments if cost reports are not required; or, will they be settled?
    We have several clients whose buildings are heavy Special Care Unit (SCU) buildings.  We have been preparing interim payback calculations for these clients.  They are asking us if these calculations should be performed.  Although it is clear cost reports are not required, most of our heavy SCU clients, due to the size of their paybacks in the past (some over $100,000), are reluctant to accept these paybacks will simply “go away” without further definitive guidance from the State.  There is significant planning that occurs relative to these paybacks and our clients are unwilling to just hope there will be no more paybacks.  Additional written guidance relative to this matter is appreciated.
    DMA will not do cost settlements associated with cost reports that are suspended.

Implementation of Independent Assessment, Prior Authorization, and New Personal Care Services and PCS-Plus Clinical Coverage Policy

Independent assessment of personal care services (PCS) recipients is being implemented in response to Session Law 2009-451 (Senate Bill 202), Section 10.68A.(a)(3).  The Carolinas Center for Medical Excellence (CCME)was awarded the contract to conduct PCS independent assessments.

All PACT forms received by CCME on or before March 19, 2010 have been reviewed.  Denial of service notifications will be mailed by April 9, 2010, to recipients and providers regarding recipients who do not meet program qualifying criteria.  Requests for additional information will be mailed to providers regarding recipients whose PACT forms lack critical information or documentation.  The timeline for mailing requests for additional information will be announced on the Independent Assessment website. Payments for prior services not provided in compliance with program policy are subject to recoupment.

Independent assessment, prior authorization, and the new clinical coverage policy for PCS and PCS-Plus will be implemented April 1, 2010.  Effective April 1, 2010, the following changes will occur:

  1. New Referrals and Admissions
    All individuals applying for admission to PCS or PCS-Plus must obtain a referral through their primary care or attending physician.  New referral forms and instructions may be accessed on the DMA PCS services web page and the Independent Assessment website

    CCME will contact individuals applying for admission to schedule appointments for independent assessments.

    Between April 1 and April 16, 2010, providers may conduct only those new referral assessments that were scheduled prior to April 1, 2010.
  1. Change of Status Reviews
    CCME will conduct all change of status reassessments.  Referral forms and instructions for requesting change of status reviews may be accessed on the DMA PCS services web page and the Independent Assessment website. 
  1. Continuing Service (Annual) Reassessments
    CCME will conduct PCS and PCS-Plus continuing service reassessments. During April 2010, CCME will begin conducting reassessments of recipients whose PACTs expire in May 2010.  CCME will notify providers and contact recipients to schedule these reassessments. CCME may request assistance from providers if recipients cannot be reached.

    During April 2010, providers should conduct reassessments for PCS and PCS-Plus recipients as their assessment dates come due.  The last day providers will conduct continuing service reassessments is April 30, 2010.  Beginning May 1, 2010, CCME will conduct all reassessments.
  1. Recipient Choice of Provider
    Individuals approved for PCS may choose any qualified home care agency licensed to provide PCS in the recipient's county. CCME assessors will provide recipients with randomized lists of licensed providers from which to choose. It is the responsibility of the provider agency to ensure that its provider enrollment information is current with DMA.  
  1. Prior Authorization
    All assessments and reassessments conducted by CCME will determine recipient eligibility and authorized service levels.  Prior approval of these recipients’ claims will be required.  Claims for services that exceed levels authorized by CCME will be denied.
  1. Claims Processing Requirements
    Implementation of independent assessment will involve additional claims processing requirements.  In order to process PCS claims, a complete roster that identifies each provider’s Medicaid PCS recipients is required.  To ensure prompt claims processing and payment, providers who have not previously submitted PACT forms for all current recipients should submit recipient information immediately.  Use one of the following two methods:
    1. Submit PACT forms for all current recipients using and following instructions on the PACT Face Sheet (see the Independent Assessment website).
    2. In lieu of submitting recipient PACT forms, providers may prepare and submit to CCME a summary that includes the following:
      1. Agency name;
      2. Medicaid provider number;
      3. Agency physical address;
      4. Agency contact person, telephone number, and e-mail address; and
      5. A list, alphabetized by recipient last name, of each PCS recipient’s Medicaid identification number, date of birth, date of current PACT form, and first and last name.

    Beginning April 1, 2010, please allow two weeks after sending recipient information before submitting claims for new recipients, as payments will be delayed until CCME receives and transmits this information to the claims vendor.  Once recipient information has been processed by the claims vendor, unprocessed claims may be re-submitted for payment. 
  1. Weekly Summaries
    Continue to submit to CCME updates of new recipients you assess and admit through April 16, 2010, and of continuing recipients you reassess through April 30, 2010.  Either use and follow instructions in Part 1 of the Weekly Summary Form (see the Independent Assessment website), or use the method described in paragraph 6.b., above, to submit information for newly admitted and reassessed recipients.

    Until further notice, continue to submit weekly discharge updates to CCME, using and following instructions in Part 2 of the Weekly Summary Form (see the Independent Assessment website).

    Providers will not be required to submit new admission or reassessment updates for recipients assessed by CCME.
  2. Compliance with New PCS Clinical Coverage Policy
    The new PCS and PCS-Plus Clinical Coverage Policy 3C is in effect.  The policy includes changes required by Session Law 2009-451 (Senate Bill 202), Section 10.68A.(a)(3), including changes in Non-Covered Tasks.  Providers must update Plans of Care (POCs) to comply with the new policy and must implement the revised POCs by April 30, 2010. POC revisions made in response to policy changes in Non-Covered Tasks may be signed as RN update. DMA will not require physician signature or approval of these changes. Further guidance on updating POCs t comply with the new policy will be available on the Independent Assessment website.

Refer to the Independent Assessment website and future bulletin articles for additional information and updates.  Questions also may be directed to the CCME Independent Assessment Help Line at 1-800-228-3365 and by e-mail to PCSAssessment@thecarolinascenter.org.

Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment and Applicability to Medicaid Services and Providers

Service limitations on scope, amount, duration, frequency, location of service, and other specific criteria stated in this publication may be exceeded or may not apply to recipients under 21 years of age if the provider's documentation shows that

  • the requested service is medically necessary to correct or ameliorate a defect, physical or mental illness, or health problem; and
  • all other Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT) criteria are met.

This applies to both proposed and current limitations. Providers should review any information in this publication that contains limitations in the context of EPSDT and apply that information to their service requests for recipients under 21 years of age. A brief summary of EPSDT follows.

EPSDT is a federal Medicaid requirement (42 U.S.C. § 1396d(r) of the Social Security Act) that requires the coverage of services, products, or procedures for Medicaid recipients under 21 years of age if the service is medically necessary health care to correct or ameliorate a defect, physical or mental illness, or a condition [health problem] identified through a screening examination (including any evaluation by a physician or other licensed clinician).

This means that EPSDT covers most of the medical or remedial care a child needs to

  • improve or maintain his or her health in the best condition possible OR
  • compensate for a health problem OR
  • prevent it from worsening OR
  • prevent the development of additional health problems

Medically necessary services will be provided in the most economic mode possible, as long as the treatment made available is similarly efficacious to the service requested by the recipient's physician, therapist, or other licensed practitioner; the determination process does not delay the delivery of the needed service; and the determination does not limit the recipient's right to a free choice of providers.

EPSDT does not require the state Medicaid agency to provide any service, product, or procedure that is unsafe, ineffective, experimental, or investigational; that is not medical in nature; or that is not generally recognized as an accepted method of medical practice or treatment.

If the service, product, or procedure requires prior approval, the fact that the recipient is under 21 years of age does not eliminate the requirement for prior approval.

For important additional information about EPSDT, please visit the following websites:
