Who is responsible for pharmaceutical costs as it relates to the terminal illness?

The hospice agency is responsible for pharmaceutical costs related to pain management and symptom control of the terminal illness.


Why would a Nursing Facility provider receive a 951 rejection if the beneficiary had always been eligible for NF Medicaid since entering the facility?

A 951 Edit Code means the beneficiary was not eligible for Medicaid on the date of service. The beneficiary and/or responsible party for the beneficiary might not have completed the annual Medicaid eligibility review. Inform the nursing facility caller to contact the beneficiary’s eligibility caseworker.                                                                                                                                                                                


Will every Nursing Facility or Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) / Mental Retardation (MR) have the same rate?

No.


Will the hospice agency receive a copy of the DHHS Form 181 when the recurring income changes?

Yes, they will receive a copy of the 181 to verify the income change. It is recommended that the NF or ICF/MR attach a copy of the most current 181 when invoicing the hospice. Recurring income is noted in Section III of DHHS Form 181. Medicaid Eligibility is responsible for determining recurring income.


REVALIDATION

Can a customer service advocate tell me if another provider has started and saved a provider revalidation application?

No. The only information that the provider service center has is if a provider revalidation application has been completed and submitted. The provider service center cannot see if a provider has started the application process but not completed it. If you have the revalidation reference number, NPI and Medicaid ID of the provider in question, you can access the application to see if there is any work in progress. Revalidation FAQs PDF
