INARF's consultant, Tracy Mitchell, has indicated that the following announcement, from the Indiana Health Coverage Programs, of delayed claims processing will impact INARF members doing ICF/IDD and HCBS waiver billing.
Processing of Medical and Outpatient Claims to be Minimally Delayed
Processing of Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP) medical and outpatient claims submitted beginning January 1, 2017, will be minimally delayed. The delay is necessary so that system upgrades related to National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI) edits can be completed.
Claims submitted for processing beginning January 1, 2017, will be held until January 6, 2017, at which time claim processing will resume. Claims will be processed in the order they are received. All delayed claims are expected to be processed by January 10, 2017.
Register on the New IHCP Provider Healthcare Portal!
Attention, providers! Web interChange will be retired soon. To avoid interruptions, you must register on the new Provider Healthcare Portal before CoreMMIS implementation. A link to the Portal is provided on the Indiana CoreMMIS web page. Providers will need to create a unique, secure Provider account for each IHCP-enrolled service location to conduct business with the Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP) when the new CoreMMIS system is implemented.
A designated representative must be assigned to create the Provider account. This Provider account representative will also assign and manage all other staff with Portal access for that service location. See CoreMMIS Bulletin BT201661 for more information and for links to web-based training on the registration process.
We hope this information is helpful. If you have questions or need additional assistance, please contact the INARF office.
