What happens when Medicaid recoups for retro-health recovery and it is outside of the timely filing window?

Professional billers do not receive retro health letters. Medicaid contacts or solicits billing payments from the private health plan.

What if a claim is created, but the beneficiary says that he/she no longer has the insurance on file?

If a beneficiary no longer has the insurance policy that is seen on the Web Tool, the provider can refer the beneficiary to their eligibility counselor/worker, or complete the Health Insurance Information Referral Form (HIIRF) to update the beneficiary’s third party payer information. Making a change to a policy that already exists in the Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) takes five days. The HIIRF Form can be faxed to 803-252-0870.


What if I do not complete my provider revalidation within 30 days?

If you do not fully complete the provider revalidation process within 30 days from the date on the notification letter, it is considered voluntary termination from South Carolina Healthy Connections Medicaid. You will need to enroll as a new provider. Revalidation FAQs PDF


What if my address is correct, but other information needs to be updated?

If any information that you used for your provider enrollment has changed and you have not informed SCDHHS of the change, you will need to follow the standard procedure to update your information. Please go to www.scdhhs.gov/Provider and select “FAQ Guide” for instructions on how to update information in your profile. Revalidation FAQs PDF


What if my revalidation notification letter is returned due to an incorrect address?

If the revalidation notification letter is returned to South Carolina Healthy Connections Medicaid as undeliverable mail, we will call you using the phone number on file in order to update your address. You will need to follow the standard procedure to update your address. To update your address, please fax or mail a letter requesting an address change to MCCS Provider Enrollment on company letterhead. The Provider Enrollment fax number is (803) 870-9022. The address is Medicaid Provider Enrollment, P.O. Box 8809, Columbia, SC 29202-8809. The letter should include the provider’s legacy and NPI numbers, as well as the new address, along with the provider’s or an authorized person’s signature and a contact person’s name and telephone number in case there are any questions. Once the address information is updated and the revalidation notification letter is re-sent, the provider will still have 30 days from the date on the original revalidation notification letter to fully complete the provider revalidation process.

If you are unable to be reached using the phone number on file, your inability to complete the provider revalidation process means that you have voluntarily terminated as a South Carolina Healthy Connections Medicaid provider and will need to enroll as a new provider.

What if my revalidation reference number does not work on the website?

What if there are NPIs associated with my Medicaid ID that I do not want to revalidate?

If there are NPIs associated with your Medicaid ID that you do not want to revalidate, do not complete an enrollment application for them. No action is needed on your part. Revalidation FAQs PDF


What if you know any other office has a claim waiting to be filed that uses the same visit counts you will be using to file a claim for a beneficiary?

You should also file right away. Area representatives can approve a few extra visits, but not every time.

What information will the provider revalidation process require?

A checklist of the documentation that you will need for the provider revalidation process can be found by copying and pasting this link you’re your browser https://www.scdhhs.gov/sites/default/files/Online%20Enrollment%20Application%20Visual%20Guide.pdf or by visiting https://www.scdhhs.gov/Provider and selecting “Online Application Visual Guide” from the “Provider Enrollment Information” section. This is currently a link to the Provider Online Enrollment Application Visual Guide. The information needed for enrollment is very similar to the information needed for revalidation. Revalidation FAQs PDF


What is a credit balance?

A credit balance is a positive amount that remains in a patient’s account which may have resulted from multiple reimbursements from several payers, adjustments to previously paid claims of a provider, duplicate payment, or subrogation events due to accidents and other injury cases. When another third party payer reimburses a provider for claims that Medicaid paid, either in part or in full, a refund is due to the Medicaid Program.
