The Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP) posted the following important information to the provider website at https://www.in.gov/medicaid/providers/ on December 4, 2018, (unless alternate date is noted).
• IHCP to revise rates for select clinical laboratory services based on 2019 Medicare rates
• IHCP corrects rate for HCPCS code C9031
• IHCP reminds dental providers that transition to the ADA 2012 claim form will be fully implemented January 1, 2019
• IHCP requests providers submit enrollment transactions via the Portal
Important to Note:
The Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP) is requesting that providers submit all provider enrollment transactions electronically using the IHCP Provider Healthcare Portal (Portal), rather than mailing paper applications and forms. Transactions that can be submitted via the Portal include enrollment applications, changes of ownership applications, revalidation applications, recertifications, rendering linkages, and Provider Profile updates.
In particular, providers that receive notice that their IHCP enrollment is due for revalidation are strongly encouraged to use the Portal to submit the revalidation application along with all required supporting documentation and the signed agreement. A complete revalidation application (including all required attachments) must be submitted in advance of the provider’s revalidation due date to prevent a provider’s enrollment from being end dated. Federal regulations do not permit the IHCP to reimburse for services rendered once a provider’s enrollment is end dated due to failure to revalidate by the specified date.
