IHCP CoreMMIS billing guidance: Part I
Today Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP) announced that on December 5, 2016, the IHCP will replace the current information processing system, IndianaAIM, with a new system called CoreMMIS, which stands for Core Medicaid Management Information System. Along with CoreMMIS, a new provider interface called the Provider Healthcare Portal (Portal) will replace Web interChange.
Indiana Disability Rights Visits
Over the past few months, Indiana Disability Rights (IDR) has visited work centers operating under the Department of Labor 14(c) sub-minimum wage certificate program. IDR did not provide any information or feedback on these site visits to work centers; however, IDR indicated a “white paper” would be issued in October of this year which would provide information regarding these visits.
The Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division is seeking input from FLSA section 14(c) certificate holders as they work to develop an online application to replace their current paper-based system. Moving to a digital format will streamline the process, and make the transmission of information more convenient, efficient and secure for everyone.
