CLIA UA testing reimbursement MNMA?

Teri 2 lat temu w Codes/Rates/Diagnosis Modules Ostatnio zmodyfikowane przez Heather L. Heim 1 rok temu 3

Does anyone out there know how to submit CLIA UAs for MNMA clients? 

I am told that because we are not a lab, we cannot submit UAs to them. 

Has anyone else had this issue? If so, who do I submit to? 

We are not a lab but we do perform UA quick dips and cups. We are only getting reimbursed by a few MCOs.

Thanks for your help, Teri

Here is the link that is associated with my question: Regarding MA/PMAP Plans.

How are OPMH practitioners billing these events? It appears authorizations might be required.
Has anyone billed these types of sessions in the past? If so, how would we do this?



Comprehensive Assessment Update Billing

Dawn 11 miesięcy temu w Codes/Rates/Diagnosis Modules Ostatnio zmodyfikowane przez Heather L. Heim 10 miesięcy temu 1

Hi, we are running into issues when billing the SUD Comprehensive Assessment Update.  The update is normally an hour long appointment as opposed to the two hour long Comprehensive Assessment.  We are wondering what code people are using when billing for the update or are updates not being billed for at all.  Thank you so much in advance for any advice that you have!


Drug Testing Billing Code Question - Saliva

Does anyone bill for drug testing using saliva samples instead of urine? We are presently using 80305 and 80307 for urinalysis. It looks to me like we can use the same codes for saliva testing but I am posting this question to see if other providers have had to code for this method. 



Hey Everyone! We started billing Psych testing codes and I am needing some help. When billing a 96131 I know with Blue Plus you are only able to bill 7 units per date of service. Does anyone know about Ucare or other PMAPS rules?




New E/M coding criteria for 2021

We do not have professional billers at our organization.  It is required that our providers have an understanding of the codes they are selecting to bill.  With the new changes to the E/M coding we are wondering if we are selecting the E/M level based on Medical Decision Making can we bill both the E/M plus an add on psychotherapy code if the prescriber is providing psychotherapy during the session.  Client is scheduled for 30min appointment the prescriber selects a 99214 based on MDD and provides 20 minutes of psychotherapy can they bill both 99214 and 90833?  Can we bill a 99213 +90833 for a client who is seen for 40 min when selecting the E/M based on MDM? We appreciate any information that may be provided.  


PMAP vs MA Reimbursement

Does anyone know why some PMAPs pay different rates from MA for the same service/provider? 

It seems like they should be the same since the PMAPs follow MA guidelines. 



Value Code 24 Room and Board Billing MN State

Jen 2 lat temu w Codes/Rates/Diagnosis Modules Ostatnio zmodyfikowane przez SEHowes 2 lat temu 4


We are having claims deny using the Value Code 24 (99920) that we were first instructed to use for SUD Room and Board claims back in 2019.  All claims have paid up until now, all are now denying as a non covered charge.  I have spoke with the provider help desk and they do not see the code we are using on the list.  They also said there have been no updates to the list since it came out in 2019.  I do have the code that they are saying we should be using and will be updating our system and I have set up a case with the state to review.  

I wanted to know anyone else is having this same issue?  We were thinking that it may have something to do with direct access starting 10/01/2020,

Thank you!
