Medicaid Electronic Claims Required March 1

According to a recent Medicaid ALERT to all providers, effective March 1, 2010, all Medicaid claims must be submitted electronically unless they require attachments or Administrative Review override by Medicaid.  Paper claims received after February 30 which do not require an attachment will not be processed by Medicaid.

In addition, beginning March 1, calls to Medicaid’s Provider Assistance Center regarding patient eligibility will be directed to an electronic verification process or transferred to their Automated Voice Response System.

Direct electronic claims to Medicaid, electronic eligibility and electronic remittances are all available from within MediSYS PM.  For more information contact us.
