2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 1: Introduction to Billing Instructions General Information This chapter provides a comprehensive explanation of billing instructions for each claim form used by the Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP). The IHCP uses the following claim forms: • UB-04 Claim Form • CMS-1500 Claim Form • American Dental Association (ADA) 2006 Claim Form • National Council for Prescription Drug Programs (NCPDP) Drug Claim Form • Indiana Medicaid Compound Prescription Claim Form Note: Claims related to Hoosier Healthwise risk-based managed care (RBMC) plans may use the above forms where applicable. Contact the appropriate managed care organization (MCO) for specific instructions. Providers can also bill claims using the 837I, 837P, or 837D transactions. This chapter includes specific guidelines for each of these transaction types. Billing instructions for the NCPDP Drug Claim Form and Compound Prescription Claim Form are available on the IHCP Web site at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com by clicking Forms on the right side of the page. The explanation of each claim form includes the following: • Types of providers using the form • Form sample • Field descriptions and field requirements • Field coding information • Unique billing instructions for each type of service billed on the form Providers can find detailed information about covered services and policy guidelines in the Indiana Administrative Code on the Web at www.state.in.us/legislative/iac/title405.html. Some supplemental programs have substantial requirements that are too lengthy to be included in this chapter. The supplemental provider manual for each program contains information about these programs. The IHCP supplemental provider manuals are available for download from the IHCP Web site at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com/general-provider-services/manuals.aspx: • Hospice Provider Manual • Medicaid Rehabilitation Option (MRO) Provider Manual • 590 Program Provider Manual • HealthWatch/Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis, and Testing (EPSDT) Provider Manual Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-17 Chapter 8 Section 1: Introduction to Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual • Home and Community-Based Services Waiver Provider Manual • Qualified Provider Presumptive Eligibility Manual Ordering Claim Forms Providers can order UB-04, CMS-1500, and ADA 2006 Dental Claim Forms from a standard form supply company. They can also download and print UB-04 and CMS-1500 version 08-05 forms from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Web site at www.cms.hhs.gov. HP does not distribute supplies of these forms. Providers can download drug and compound prescription claim forms from the http://provider.indianamedicaid.com Web site in the Forms section or order them by writing to the following: HP Forms Request P.O. Box 7263 Indianapolis, IN 46207-7263 National Provider Identifier and One-to-One Match Beginning March 1, 2008, claims are denied if healthcare providers submit a claim without a billing provider National Provider Identifier (NPI). Only atypical provider claims are exempt from this requirement. Effective May 23, 2008, providers’ IHCP Legacy Provider Identifier (LPI) may appear on the claim but will not be used to process the claim. Providers are encouraged to bill with the NPI only. All healthcare providers must report their NPI on all claims and establish a one-to-one match with the service location where the patient was treated, or the claim will be denied. Three data elements are used for the standard NPI crosswalk: • Billing NPI • Billing taxonomy code • Billing provider office service location ZIP Code + 4 on file in IndianaAIM The crosswalk attempts to establish a one-to-one match with the following data elements in the following sequence: • NPI only • NPI to billing taxonomy • NPI to billing provider office service location ZIP Code + 4 • NPI to billing provider office service location five-digit ZIP Code • NPI to billing taxonomy and five-digit ZIP Code Note: Providers can view their provider profile on the Web interChange. Additional information about the Web interChange can be found in Chapter 3 of this manual. 8-18 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 1: Introduction to Billing Instructions Use National Provider Identifier for Referring, Rendering, or Attending Provider when Submitting Claims via Web interChange Nonatypical providers that submit medical (CMS-1500 format) claims via Web interChange receive an error message when the LPI and NPI are entered for the referring or rendering provider. To resolve the error, remove the LPI from all fields on Web interChange; report only the NPI for the referring or rendering provider. Nonatypical providers that submit institutional (UB-04 format) claims via Web interChange have encountered an error message when entering the attending physician license number in the Attending Prov NPI field. Please note that only the NPI is accepted in this field; the license number of the attending physician should not be entered on the claim. Types of Services Billed on Each Claim Form Tables 8.1 to 8.3 illustrate the types of services billed on each claim form. Table 8.1 – UB-04 Claim Form Provider Types Types of Services Ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs) Outpatient surgical services End-stage renal disease (ESRD) clinics Renal dialysis services Home health agencies (HHAs) Home health services Hospices Hospice facility services (except waiver services) Hospitals Inpatient facility services (acute, psychiatric, and rehabilitation) Outpatient facility services Renal dialysis services Outpatient radiological services (technical component) Outpatient laboratory services (technical component) Long-term care (LTC) facilities Nursing facility (NF) services Intermediate care facility for the mentally retarded (ICF/MR) facility services Community residential facility for the developmentally disabled (CRF/DD) facility services (this type of facility may also be called a small ICF/MR) Long Term Acute Care (LTAC) Rehabilitation hospital facilities Rehabilitation facility services Traumatic brain injury services Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-19 Chapter 8 Section 1: Introduction to Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Table 8.2 – CMS-1500 Claim Form Provider Types 8-20 Types of Services Advanced practice nurses Midwife services Nurse practitioner services Nurse anesthetist services Audiologists Audiology services Case managers Care coordination services Chiropractors Chiropractic services Clinics Family planning services Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) services Medical services Nurse practitioner services Rural health clinic (RHC) services Therapy services Surgical services Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) Nurse anesthetist services Dentists Oral surgery Durable medical equipment (DME) and home medical equipment (HME) dealers DME/HME Medical supplies Oxygen Freestanding radiology facilities Radiological services, professional component, technical component, or global component Hearing aid dealers Hearing aids Laboratories Laboratory services-professional component Mental health providers Medicaid Rehabilitation Option (MRO) services Outpatient mental health services Mid-level practitioners Anesthesiology assistant services Physician assistant services Advanced practice nurse credentialed in psychiatric or mental health nursing Opticians Optical services Optometrists Optometric services Physicians – Medical Doctor (MD) and Doctor of Osteopathy (DO) Anesthesia services Laboratory services Medical services – professional component Mental health services Radiological services Renal dialysis services Surgical services Podiatrists Podiatric services Public health agencies Medical services Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facilities (PRTF) Behavioral Health Residential Treatment Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 1: Introduction to Billing Instructions Provider Types Types of Services School corporations Therapy services – physical, occupational, speech, and mental health Therapists Therapy services – physical, occupational, speech, and audiology Transportation providers Transportation services Waiver providers Waiver services Table 8.3 – ADA 2006 Dental Claim Form Provider Types Types of Services Dentists Dental services Medical Clinics Dental services Dental Clinics Dental services Other Dental Providers Dental services Paper Claim Requirements This section describes revisions to paper claim submission requirements that are applicable to more than one claim type. These changes are required to bring paper claim requirements into compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) electronic claim transaction requirements. Modifiers The paper CMS-1500 and UB-04 claim forms and the electronic 837P and 837I transactions accept four modifiers per procedure code. There are currently no modifiers approved for use with the Current Dental Terminology (CDT®) code set on the dental claim form. National Drug Code Billing The Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 mandates that IHCP require the submission of National Drug Codes (NDCs) on claims submitted with certain procedure codes for physician-administered drugs. This mandate affects all providers submitting electronic or paper claims for procedure-coded drugs. Because the State may pay up to the 20 percent Medicare B copayment for dually eligible individuals, the NDC will also be required on Medicare crossover claims for all applicable procedure codes. Please contact your vendor to make the necessary software changes. The NDC is required on the CMS-1500 paper claim form, Web interChange, and 837P electronic transactions for submission on all claims. Requirements for the CMS-1500 paper claim form are explained in Section 4 of this chapter. The NDC is required on the UB-04 paper claim form, Web interChange, and 837I electronic transactions for submission on all claims. Requirements for the UB-04 paper claim form are explained in Section 2 of this chapter. All providers are encouraged to monitor future bulletins and banner pages for updates about NDC reporting. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-21 Chapter 8 Section 1: Introduction to Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual The IHCP is not changing reimbursement policy pertaining to procedure-coded, physicianadministered drugs at this time. Claims for such drugs continue to be priced by using the submitted procedure code and procedure code units. The sole exception is that manually priced J and Q codes will be priced by using the submitted NDC. Procedure Code Partial Units The ADA 2006 and CMS-1500 paper claim forms and the 837 Dental (837D) and 837P transactions allow partial units for procedure codes that accommodate fractional units. Each procedure code quantity allows for two decimal places when submitting partial units. Note: Providers can submit Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) and Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes on the UB04 claim form or 837I transaction using only whole units. Date of Service Definition All claims must reflect a date of service. The date of service is the date the specific services were actually supplied, dispensed, or rendered to the patient. For example, when rendering services for space maintainers or dentures, the date of service must reflect the date the appliance or denture is delivered to the patient. This requirement is applicable to all IHCP-covered services. Electronic Standards HIPAA specifically names several electronic standards that must be followed when certain healthcare information is exchanged. These standards are published as National Electronic Data Interchange Transaction Set Implementation Guides. They are commonly called Implementation Guides (IGs). An addendum to most IGs has been published and must be used to properly implement each transaction. The IGs are available for download through the Washington Publishing Company Web site at http://wpc-edi.com. Companion Guides The IHCP has developed technical companion guides to assist application developers during the implementation process. Information contained in the IHCP Companion Guides is intended only to supplement the adopted IGs and provide guidance and clarification as it applies to the IHCP. The IHCP Companion Guides are never intended to modify, contradict, or reinterpret the rules established by the IGs. The Companion Guides are located on the IHCP Web site at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com in the EDI Solutions section. Paper Attachment Requirements The IHCP accepts paper attachments with electronic claims (837I, 837P, and 837D). Web interChange claims follow the same attachment requirements. 8-22 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 1: Introduction to Billing Instructions Paper Attachments with Electronic Claims When an 837 or Web interChange claim transaction requires the submission of additional documentation, providers can submit the documentation as a paper attachment. When a provider elects to send a paper attachment with an 837 or Web interChange transaction, the provider must include the following information: • Attachment Transmission Code – Required to indicate whether an electronic claim has paper documentation to support the billed services. This code defines the timing and transmission method or format of reports and how they are sent. Attachment Transmission Code, Data Element 756, on the 837 transaction provides this value. The IHCP only accepts paper attachments for electronic or paper claims by mail. This Attachment Transmission Code is BM (by mail). • Attachment Report Type Code – Indicates the type of attachment that the provider is sending to the IHCP to support the 837 or Web interChange claim data. The code indicates the title or contents of a document, report, or supporting item. Enter this code in Report Type Code, Data Element 755. For a complete listing of Attachment Report Type Codes, refer to the specific 837 or Web interChange claim transaction implementation guide. • Attachment control number (ACN) – This code identifies each attachment. The ACN is created by the provider and can be numbers, letters, or a combination of letters and numbers. ACNs can be up to 30 characters in length. Enter this code in Attachment Control Number, Data Element 67. Providers must adhere to the following instructions when submitting paper attachments for electronic claims: • Each paper attachment submitted for an 837 or Web interChange transaction must include a provider-assigned ACN. Assign a unique ACN for each type of attachment within a claim. Write the corresponding ACN on each page of the document. Once an ACN has been used, it cannot be used again, even if the same claim is resubmitted at a later date. • Providers must send an IHCP Claims Attachment Cover Sheet for attachments associated with a specific claim. Each claim must have its own attachment cover sheet. Providers can find a copy of the IHCP Claim Attachment Cover Sheet on the IHCP Web site at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com in the Forms section. The provider must complete the following information on the IHCP Claims Attachment Cover Sheet: - Billing provider name and service location address and ZIP Code + 4 - Billing provider National Provider Identifier (NPI) or Legacy Provider Identifier (LPI) and service location • Only atypical providers can use LPI and service location - Date(s) of service of the claim - IHCP member identification number (RID) - The ACN for each attachment for the claim - Number of pages associated with each attachment (not including the cover page) • Providers can submit a maximum of 20 ACNs with each attachment cover sheet. • The ACN must be unique per document type. Documents cannot be shared between claims. • Attachments not processed within 45 calendar days of the date posted on the provider’s Remittance Advice will be denied. Providers must mail paper attachments to the IHCP at the following address: HP Claims Attachments P.O. Box 7259 Indianapolis, IN 46207 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-23 Chapter 8 Section 1: Introduction to Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual The HP Claims Support Unit reviews each Claims Attachment Cover Sheet for completeness and accuracy of the number of ACNs to the number of attachments. If errors are found, HP returns the cover sheet and attachments to the provider for correction and resubmission. If the provider does not mail the attachments within 45 days of claim submission, the claims are automatically denied. If the provider has submitted the attachments, but one specific attachment needed for processing is missing from the batch, the claim or service line denies. Report Type Code For processing, providers must also use the Report Type Code indicating the type of attachment that they are sending. Report Type Codes are as follows: • B4 – Referral Form – Used by Surveillance and Utilization Review (SUR) for the Right Choices Program • DA – Dental Models – Used by SUR and submitted only upon request • DG – Diagnostic Report – Used by PA and SUR • EB – Explanation of Benefits – Used by TPL, Resolutions, and SUR • OB – Operative Note – Used by PA, Resolutions, Medical Policy, and SUR • P6 – Periodontal Charts – Used for specific periodontal procedures • RR – Radiology Reports – Used by PA, Medical Policy, and SUR • RB – Radiology Films – Used by PA and SUR • OZ – Support Data for Claim – The following are uses for progress notes: - Invoices (Manual Pricing) - Durable Medical Equipment delivery tickets - Transportation run tickets - Sterilization/Hysterectomy consent forms - Spend-down Form 8A - Past filing limit documentation - PA request/response copies - Environmental modification service requests - Consultation reports Claim Notes IndianaAIM accepts claim note information in electronic 837 claim transactions and retrieves the information for review during processing. This feature reduces the number of attachments that must be sent with claims. Also, in some instances, use of the claim note may assist with the adjudication of claims. For example, when postoperative care is performed within one day of surgery, providers can submit supporting information in the claim note segment rather than sending an attachment. When a provider submits claims electronically via an 837 transaction or Web interChange claim submission, the following is true for claim notes: • 8-24 At the header level, the IHCP accepts 20 claim notes for the 837D transaction, 10 claim notes for the 837I transaction, and one claim note for the 837P transaction. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 1: Introduction to Billing Instructions • At the detail level, the IHCP allows 10 claim notes on the 837D transaction and one claim note on the 837P transaction. • The IHCP does not support detail level claim notes on the 837I transaction. • Claim note codes identify the functional area or purpose for which the note applies: - ADD – Additional Information - CER – Certification Narrative (header only) - DCP – Goals, Rehabilitation Potential, or Discharge Plans - DGN – Diagnosis Description (header only) - PMT – Payment - TPO – Third Party Organization Notes Number of Details IndianaAIM complies with HIPAA standards for details as follows: • 837I – 450 details (the maximum number of details for Medicare) • 837D – 50 details • 837P – 50 details Note: The IHCP accepts as many as 5,000 Claim (CLM) segments per ST – SE. Web interChange also accommodates these limitations. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-25 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Providers Using the UB-04 Claim Form The following types of providers use the UB-04 claim form when billing services to the Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP): • Ambulatory surgery center (ASC) • End-stage renal disease (ESRD) clinic • Home health agency (HHA) • Hospice provider • Hospital • Long-term care (LTC) facility • Rehabilitation hospital facility Note: Hospital pharmacy take-home, direct care services performed by a physician, and transportation services provided in a hospital are not billed on a UB-04 claim form. UB-04 Claim Form Requirements This section provides a brief overview of the requirements to complete the UB-04 claim form. The IHCP no longer accepts the UB-92 claim form. These instructions are effective for paper claim submission starting April 1, 2007. Noncompliant UB04 paper claims submitted for processing after March 1, 2008, will be returned to the provider. Providers that have been assigned a National Provider Identifier (NPI) should include their NPI on the paper claim form. For more instructions about NPI requirements, see the National Provider Identifier and One-to-One Match section. Description of Fields on the UB-04 Claim Form This section explains the completion of the UB-04 claim form. Some information is required to complete the claim form, while other information is optional. Note: These instructions apply to the IHCP guidelines only and are not intended to replace instructions issued by the National Uniform Billing Committee (NUBC). The NUBC instruction manual can be accessed at http://www.nubc.org. With the implementation of the UB-04 paper claim form, the IHCP accepts as many as 66 lines for any one paper claim. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-26 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions The UB-04 paper claims form does not have a designated signature field. Therefore, all providers must have the Claim Certification Statement for Signature on File form with the IHCP for the UB-04 claim form to be processed. The Claim Certification Statement for Signature on File form can be obtained on the Forms page of the IHCP Web site at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com/general-provider-services/forms.aspx. Table 8.4 indicates in bold type if a field is Required or Required, if applicable. Optional and Not applicable information is displayed in normal type. Specific instructions applicable to a particular provider type are included. The table describes each form locator by referring to the number found in the left corner of each box on the UB-04 claim form. These boxes contain the data elements. The chart provides basic information about UB-04 claim fields. Where necessary, the chart notes specific directions applicable to a particular provider type: • Accommodation rates are always in units of full days. • A day begins at midnight and ends 24 hours later. • Any part of a day, including the day of admission, counts as a full day, except the following: - The day of discharge is not counted as a day unless the member is readmitted by midnight on the same day. - The day of death is the day of discharge and is not counted. • A period of inpatient care that includes at least one night in a hospital and is reimbursable under the IHCP is considered an inpatient stay; however, if fewer than 24 hours, then outpatient observation should be billed. Providers should use the UB-04 billing manual conventions unless otherwise specified. Table 8.4 gives field information for the UB-04 claim form. Table 8.5 lists revenue codes with descriptions.

Therapeutic Services, the IHCP does not reimburse revenue codes 920, 929, 940, 941, 942, 944, 945, 946, 947, or 949. Providers must use an appropriate revenue code that is descriptive of the service or where the service was performed. Table 8.6 shows a list of nonreimbursable codes under 92x and 94x. Table 8.6 – Diagnostic and Therapeutic Services Not Reimbursable by the IHCP Revenue Code Description 920 Other Diagnostic Services – General 929 Other Diagnostic Service – Other Diagnostic Service 940 Other Therapeutic Service – General 941 Other Therapeutic Service – Recreational Therapy 942 Other Therapeutic Service – Education/Training 944 Other Therapeutic Service – Drug Rehabilitation 945 Other Therapeutic Service – Alcohol Rehabilitation 946 Other Therapeutic Service – Complex Medical Equipment – Routine 947 Other Therapeutic Service – Complex Medical Equipment – Ancillary 949 Other Therapeutic Service – Additional Therapeutic Services Therapeutic and diagnostic injections are performed within a number of treatment centers in a hospital, including but not limited to an operating room (360), emergency room (450), or clinic (510). Similar to Medicare policy, IHCP policy requires that hospitals report these injections under the revenue code for the treatment center where injections are performed. This is also consistent with rate setting for treatment rooms as costs for injections were considered when establishing treatment room rates. Injections are included in the reimbursement of the treatment room when other services are provided. However, if a patient is treated and only received the injection service, the provider will be reimbursed the flat fee of the appropriately billed treatment room revenue code. Claims using the 8-54 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions revenue codes in the 92x and 94x series listed above may have previously denied with Explanation of Benefits (EOB) code 4014 – No pricing segment on file. Claims billed with these revenue codes now deny with EOB code 4107 – Revenue code is not appropriate or not covered for the type of service being provided. UB-04 Claim Types When billing National Drug Codes (NDCs) that have one procedure code but that involve multiple NDCs, providers will no longer need to use the KP and KQ modifiers. Providers will bill the claim with the appropriate NDC for the drug they are dispensing on separate detail lines. For example, if a provider administers 150 mg of Synagis, most likely a 50 mg vial plus a 100 mg vial would be used. These two vials have different NDCs but one procedure code; therefore the item would be billed with two detail lines for the same procedure code and the corresponding NDCs. This change includes crossover claims as well. Compounds – Outpatient/Outpatient Crossover When billing any compound drugs that require an NDC, providers must bill the appropriate NDC for each procedure code. Providers will receive payment for all valid NDCs included in the compound drugs. Home Health Services Coverage Home health services are available to IHCP members medically confined to the home, when services are ordered in writing from a physician and performed in accordance with the written plan of care. It is important to note that there is a distinction between the Medicare home health definition of “homebound” and Indiana Medicaid’s definition of “homebound.” The Medicaid program serves a more expansive age range than the Medicare program. Home health services may be provided to those who are medically confined to the home, including IHCP members who, because of illness or injury, are unable to leave home without the assistance of another person or an assistive device, or for whom leaving home is contrary to medical advice. As such, Medicaid members may work, attend school outside the home, and leave the home with assistance of another person or an assistive device, such as a wheelchair or walker. Home health services can be provided if medically necessary to assist in these day-to-day functions. The following sections provide specific billing procedures for home health services. Providers should refer to Rule 16, 405 IAC 5-16-3, home health agency services limitations, for detailed information about coverage and PA requirements. Billing Procedures Submit home health claims electronically, or mail to the following address for processing: HP Home Health Claims P.O. Box 7271 Indianapolis, IN 46207-7271 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-55 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Note: For risk-based managed care (RBMC) members, bill the appropriate managed care organization (MCO). Contact information can be found in Chapter 1 of this manual. Home health providers follow the general billing directions for completing the UB-04 claim form with the exception of the service date, local codes, and the additional type of bill codes. In field 44, HCPCS/RATES, providers must enter the HCPCS/CPT code for the service provided, not the rate. Table 8.7 lists revenue codes and the crosswalked HCPCS/CPT codes. Table 8.7 – Revenue Codes/HCPCS/CPT Codes Revenue Code HCPCS/ CPT Code Revenue Code HCPCS/ CPT Code Revenue Code HCPCS Code 420 G0151 421 G0151 422 G0151 423 G0151 424 97001 429 G0151 430 G0152 431 G0152 432 G0152 433 G0152 434 97003 439 G0152 440 G0153 441 G0153 442 G0153 443 G0153 444 92506 449 G0153 552 99600 TE 552 99600 TD 559 S9349 559 99601, 99602 572 99600 Unit of Service Each line item identifies services billed using HCPCS codes and service dates. Providers must bill each date of service as a separate line item and bill each level of service, such as registered nurse (RN) or licensed practical nurse (LPN), provided on the same date as a separate line item. The procedure code description defines the unit of service. When home health providers perform the same service, such as multiple RN visits on the same date of service, they must bill those services on the same claim form and on one detail with the total number of units of services provided. Billing separate lines for the same service with the same date of service causes claims to be denied as exact duplicates. The Office of Medicaid Policy and Planning (OMPP) sets the rate for each procedure code. The billing units of home health visits for therapists, home health aides, LPNs, and RNs are as follows: • For therapy visits – If the therapist is in the home eight minutes or more, the provider can round the visit up to the 15-minute unit of service. If the therapist is in the home for seven minutes or less, the provider cannot round this up and therefore cannot bill for it. Therapy codes are measured as one unit equals 15 minutes. • For home health aides, LPN, or RN visits – If the home health aide, LPN, or RN is in the home for fewer than 29 minutes, providers can bill for the entire first hour only if they provided a service. For subsequent hours in the home, providers should use the partial unit procedure as outlined in the subsection of this chapter titled Partial Units of Service. Nursing services are measured as one unit equals one hour. If the therapist, home health aide, LPN, or RN enters the home and the member refuses service, providers cannot bill for any unit of service. Overheads are linked with reimbursement for services provided. Because providers rendered no service, they cannot be reimbursed for the overhead. 8-56 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Overhead Rate For services rendered prior to July 1, 2008 – for each encounter at the home, regardless of the type of service provided or the number of members serviced – home health providers receive an overhead rate for administrative costs and a staffing reimbursement component, depending on the type and number of units of service provided. The OMPP calculates the overhead rates and staffing reimbursement. These rates are the same for all agencies. An encounter occurs when an RN, LPN, home health aide, or therapist enters a home, provides services to one or more members within that home, and then leaves, thereby completing the encounter. When more than one member receives home health services in a single household, providers must coordinate care in the most efficient manner. Providers must report multiple-care member situations on PA requests. Providers may only bill one overhead per provider, per recipient per day. Effective for claims with dates of service on or after July 1, 2008, occurrence codes 62 – 66, are no longer active. Home health claims billed with occurrence codes 62 – 66, and a date of service on or after July 1, 2008, will be denied with the following Explanation of Benefit (EOB) code: 0515 - The overhead fee is not on file for the dates of service indicated or the home health occurrence code is invalid for the date of service. Please verify and resubmit. Occurrence codes 62 – 66 are active for claims that are billed or adjusted with dates of service through June 30, 2008. Providers use the UB-04 occurrence code, occurrence date, and occurrence span for fields 31-34, a–b, on the UB-04 to indicate the appropriate overhead fees. Use the following six codes to identify the overhead rate: • Code 61 indicates that one encounter with the member occurred on the date shown. • Code 62 indicates that two encounters occurred on the date shown: - These may be the same service or a combination of services provided on one day. - Example: One skilled nurse encounter and one home health aide encounter, or two home health aide encounters of care. Occurrence code not valid for dates of service on or after July 1, 2008. • Code 63 indicates that three encounters occurred on the date shown: - These may be the same service or a combination of services provided on one day. - Example: One physical therapy encounter, one skilled nurse encounter, and one home health aide encounter. Occurrence code not valid for dates of service on or after July 1, 2008. • Code 64 indicates that four encounters occurred on the date shown: - These may be the same service or a combination of services provided on one day. - Example: In limited pediatric cases, the need for more than three overhead charges in one 24hour period may occur. Occurrence code not valid for dates of service on or after July 1, 2008. • Code 65 indicates that five encounters occurred on the date shown: - These may be the same service or a combination of services provided on one day. - Example: In limited pediatric cases, the need for more than four overhead charges in one 24hour period may occur. Occurrence code not valid for dates of service on or after July 1, 2008. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-57 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions • Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Code 66 indicates that six encounters occurred on the date shown: - These may be the same service or a combination of services provided on one day. - Example: In limited pediatric cases, the need for more than five overhead charges in one 24hour period may occur. Occurrence code not valid for dates of service on or after July 1, 2008. Note: Use codes 64–66 only in exceptional circumstances. The OMPP closely monitors these codes. If the OMPP overpays a provider for overhead component occurrences, the provider is responsible for completing a paper adjustment form or an electronic void or replacement. Occurrence codes 64, 65, and 66 are not valid for dates of service on or after July 1, 2008. • If the dates of service billed are not consecutive, the provider should enter the correct occurrence code corresponding to each date of service billed on the UB-04 in the occurrence code and occurrence date fields 31-34 (a-b on the paper UB-04 claim form). • If the dates of service billed are consecutive, and one encounter was provided per day, enter occurrence code 61 and the dates of service being billed in the occurrence span code field 35 a-b. • Providers cannot use occurrence codes 62 - 66 in the occurrence span code field. Providers that submit more than one UB-04 claim form in a multiple-member care situation should submit only one form with the overhead attached. As long as the overhead is attached to only one member, it does not matter to which member it is attached. Note: Providers should not add the dollar figures associated with the overhead rates to the claim when calculating total charges. The Remittance Advice (RA) or the 835 transaction automatically reflects the appropriate overhead amounts. Home Health Rule Changes Effective July 1, 2008, pursuant to 405 IAC 1-4.2-4 (a) (1) home health agency reimbursement for State fiscal year 2009 forward will result in one overhead cost rate per provider, per recipient, per day. Home health agency rates for State fiscal year 2009 and after will be based on a new rate-setting methodology that is based on 95 percent of the unweighted median as the basis for rates. See 405 IAC 1-4.2-4 (b). The State fiscal year 2008 reimbursement methodology expired June 30, 2008. (LSA Document #07-31, Section 5.) Table 8.8 – Home Health Services Code 8-58 Service No Code Overhead 99600 TD Registered Nurse (RN) 99600 TE Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) 99600 Home Health Aide G0151 Physical Therapy G0152 Occupational Therapy G0153 Speech Therapy Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Multiple Visit Billing When providers make multiple visits for the same prior authorized service to a member in one day, providers should bill all visits on the same claim form and on one detail with the total number of units of service provided. If providers bill these services on separate claim forms or on separate claim details, the IHCP denies one or more of the services as a duplicate service. In the event additional hours of the same service are identified after a claim has been adjudicated and paid, providers must submit a paid claim adjustment. Procedures for submitting a paid claim adjustment are in Chapter 11 of this manual. Home health agency providers should be aware that rotating personnel in the home merely to increase billing is not appropriate. Example A home health agency sent an RN to a member’s home in the morning and an LPN to the same home in the evening of July 15, 2009. The nurse performed two hours of RN services in the morning, and a second nurse performed two hours of LPN services in the evening of July 15, 2009. Detail 1: Revenue Code 552 with HCPCS 99600 TD. Date of Service is 7/15/09 and 2 in the units of service. Detail 2: Revenue Code 552 with HCPCS 99600 TE. Date of Service is 7/15/09 and 2 in the units of service. Note: In this example, providers will bill for only one overhead for dates of service July 1, 2009, and after, by entering a 61 occurrence code with a corresponding date of 7/15/09 in fields 31a-34b and 35a-36b on the UB-04 claim form. Partial Units of Service Providers must round partial units of service to the nearest whole unit when calculating reimbursement. Round up any partial unit of service of 30 minutes or more to the next highest unit, and round down any partial unit of service of 29 minutes or less to the next lowest unit. Nursing services are measured as one unit of service equals 60 minutes, while therapies are measured as one unit equals 15 minutes. • Example 1: 85 minutes spent on billable patient care activities is rounded down to one unit. • Example 2: 95 minutes spent on billable patient care activities is rounded up to two units. Hospital Discharge Providers can perform certain services without PA following IHCP member discharge from a hospital, if the parameters meet those outlined in the IAC. Within the constraints in several IAC rules, the following apply: Note: For members enrolled in Hoosier Healthwise or Care Select, providers should refer to Chapter 6 for additional information about PA. • Providers may perform home health services without PA when an RN, LPN, or home health aide performs the service, if the service does not exceed 120 units within 30 calendar days following hospital discharge. - The physician must order services in writing prior to the patient’s hospital discharge. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-59 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions - Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual The patient must be homebound. • Any combination of therapy services ordered in writing by a physician cannot continue beyond 30 units in 30 calendar days without PA. - The physician must order services in writing prior to the patient’s hospital discharge. - The patient must be homebound. • Services must be within the limits specified in 405 IAC 5-16-3. • Providers should use occurrence code 50 with the corresponding date of discharge in the occurrence code and occurrence date fields 31-34, a–b on the UB-04, to bypass PA requirements associated with the previously mentioned parameters. • Use occurrence code 53 to show HHA billing for initial therapy evaluations. This code exempts evaluations from PA editing. Providers must bill revenue codes specific to therapy evaluations. • When a provider bills for services exceeding the aforementioned parameters, and the provider has not received PA for additional units, IndianaAIM automatically denies or cuts back units on the RA. • The IHCP does not require PA for an emergency visit, but providers must request a Prior Authorization System Update from the PA Department to continue service provision. Billing Procedures for Home Infusion and Enteral Therapy Services Four provider types may bill for home infusion and enteral therapy services and supplies: • Durable medical equipment (DME) • Home medical equipment (HME) • Home health agencies (HHAs) • Pharmacies Home infusion includes the following: • Enteral feeding within, or by way of, the intestine • Enteral tube feeding that includes the provision of nutritional requirements through a tube into the stomach or small intestine • Parenteral therapy that includes any route other than the alimentary canal such as intravenous, subcutaneous, intramuscular, or mucosal • Total parenteral nutrition therapy (TPN) When providers bill for home infusion and enteral therapy, they should bill the following three components separately: 8-60 • DME and HME providers bill all supplies, equipment, and formulas required to administer home infusion and enteral therapy on a CMS-1500 claim form or 837P transaction using the appropriate HCPCS code. • HHAs bill only for services provided in the home by an RN or LPN on the UB-04 claim form or 837I transaction using the appropriate HCPCS codes. • Pharmacies bill for compound drugs or any drugs used in parenteral therapy on an IFSSA Drug Claim Form using the appropriate National Drug Code (NDC). Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Billing Procedures for Home Tocolytic Infusion Therapy Using a Home Uterine Monitoring Device HHAs may bill all three components using the proper billing forms and appropriate codes if the HHA maintains multiple enrollments as an HHA, Pharmacy and DME, or HME provider. Only those HHAs that meet the following guidelines are allowed to bill for home tocolytic infusion therapy using a home uterine monitoring device. At a minimum, the HHA must have staff that can perform the following: • Contact the patient’s physician at least weekly for updates on patient condition and compliance. • Provide home health care to pregnant women 24 hours a day, seven days a week. • Provide patient education about uterine contractions and other subtle symptoms of preterm labor. • Provide pharmacological consultation about the use of tocolytics and individualized patient dosing 24 hours a day, seven days a week. • Provide the patient with a tocolytic infusion pump and a uterine monitoring device, including setup and delivery; provide patient education about the use of the equipment; and be available to troubleshoot the equipment 24 hours a day, seven days a week. To qualify for this therapy, the member must meet the following conditions: • Be at least 24 to 34 weeks gestation. • Be in current preterm labor. Preterm labor is defined as greater than or equal to six contractions per hour. • Have a cervical dilation of greater than or equal to one centimeter, or an effacement of greater than or equal to 75 percent. • Have direct home telephone access to providers, which means having a working telephone. • Have experienced secondary failure to wean from infused tocolytics, or have failed oral therapy and requires continued infusion therapy. • Have an obstetrician or gynecologist (OB/GYN) as the referring physician or if not, have had a consultation with an OB/GYN. Three codes, S9349, 99601, and 99602, are assigned to home tocolytic infusion therapy using a home monitoring device. Code S9349 denotes the total global package of services with home health agencies providing all the components under home tocolytic infusion therapy. S9349 covers the following items: • Home uterine monitor • Skilled nursing services that include the following: - Initial nursing assessment - Instructions given to the patient about the proper use of the monitoring equipment - Home visits as needed to monitor signs and symptoms of preterm labor - Twenty-four-hour telephone support for troubleshooting on the monitoring equipment, for pharmacological support, and for patient symptoms • Ambulatory infusion pump Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-61 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual • Tocolytic drugs • All other supplies necessary to maintain a patient at home on this therapy including the following: - Conductive paste or gel - Dressings - Extra batteries for infusion pump - Sharps container - Site kits - Syringes - Tubing - Other supplies This global package also includes any costs involved in transmitting reports to the physician electronically, such as a fax or telephone modem. Codes 99601 and 99602 are used if a member meets the criteria for home tocolytic infusion therapy and the agency is providing the home uterine monitoring and skilled nursing components of the therapy only (rather than the entire package noted in S9349). When the home health agency bills 99601 and 99602, the tocolytic drugs and other supplies must be supplied and billed separately through another provider. The home health agency should provide only the home uterine monitor and the skilled nursing components of the home tocolytic infusion therapy. The home health agency may bill 99601 for the first two hours of therapy and bill 99602 for each additional hour of therapy, up to 22 additional hours for each 24-hour period. Codes 99601 and 99602 cover the following items: • Home uterine monitor • Skilled nursing services that include the following: - Initial nursing assessment - Instructions given to the patient about the proper use of the monitor - Home visits to monitor signs and symptoms of preterm labor - Twenty-four hour telephone support for troubleshooting the monitoring equipment and for reporting patient symptoms • This package also includes any costs involved in transmitting reports to the physician electronically, such as fax or telephone modem.

All supplies for each therapy are bundled into a daily rate, and HHAs are not allowed to bill separately for any supplies associated with these therapies and are not allowed to bill an overhead charge when daily infusion services do not include an actual encounter in the home. Providers are allowed to bill one unit of service daily and should use revenue code 559 when billing S9349, 99601, and 99602. Cases of premature labor treated with oral medication only, or requests for home uterine monitoring devices alone for the purpose of screening high-risk pregnancies, do not qualify for inclusion under the established criteria and are not approved. Members who receive only oral medications or who require only home uterine monitoring devices do not qualify for inclusion under the established criteria for tocolytic infusion therapy. Note: The OMPP closely monitors overhead billing associated with these procedure codes and where abuse is found, initiates recoupment efforts. Hospice Care Coverage IHCP members in need of hospice care must be eligible for program services, must have a prognosis of six months or less to live, and must elect hospice services. Available hospice services include, but are not limited to, palliative care for physical, psychological, social, and spiritual needs of the patient. Hospices can provide hospice care to an IHCP member in an inpatient setting or in the member’s home. Hospice providers must first be enrolled in the IHCP before the IHCP can reimburse them for services rendered. Note: Hospice providers should ensure that Hoosier Healthwise and Care Select members disenroll from the respective program before the member elects the hospice benefit. Billing Procedures Mail hospice claims to the following address for processing: HP Hospice Claims P.O. Box 7271 Indianapolis, IN 46207-7271 Hospice providers follow the general directions for completing the UB-04 claim form and use the following hospice-specific information to fill in the claim form.

Hospice providers are paid a per diem at the hospice level of care they are providing. Hospice providers should bill only one hospice revenue code per day. Revenue codes 183, 185, and 657 are the only revenue codes that can be billed on the same day as another hospice revenue code. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-63 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Revenue Codes Providers should use a code from the following applicable revenue codes for hospice care: Revenue Code 183: Nursing Facility Bed Hold for Hospice Therapeutic Leave Days • The hospice provider receives 50 percent of the 95 percent nursing facility (NF) case mix rate for the room and board rate associated with therapeutic leave of absence days. • A total of 18 therapeutic leave of absence days are allowed per patient, per calendar year. • One day equals one unit of service. • Revenue code 183 may be billed on the same day as other hospice revenue codes Revenue Code 185: Nursing Facility Bed Hold Policy for Hospitalization for Services Unrelated to the Terminal Illness of the Hospice Member • The hospice provider receives 50 percent of the 95 percent NF case mix rate associated with each hospitalization up to 15 days per occurrence. • One day equals one unit of service. • Revenue code 185 may be billed on the same day as other hospice revenue codes. Revenue Code 651: Routine Home Care Delivered in a Private Home • The IHCP pays the hospice at the routine home care rate for each day the member is at home, under the care of the hospice provider, and not receiving continuous home care. • The IHCP pays this rate without regard to the volume or intensity of routine home care services on any given day. • One day equals one unit of service. Note: When an IHCP-only hospice member, residing in his or her private home, is admitted to an NF for treatment of a nonterminal condition, the hospice provider must continue to bill for hospice services using revenue codes 653 or 654 while the hospice member is in the facility. When the hospice patient has resumed residence in his or her private home, the hospice provider must bill the IHCP using hospice review codes 651 or 652 for those dates of service following the discharge from the facility. Revenue Code 652: Continuous Home Care Delivered in a Private Home 8-64 • The provider gives continuous home care only during a period of crisis. • A period of crisis occurs when a patient requires continuous care, primarily nursing care, to achieve palliation and management of acute medical symptoms. • The provider must provide a minimum of eight hours of care during a 24-hour day that begins and ends at midnight. • An RN or LPN must provide care for more than half the total time. This care need not be continuous and uninterrupted. • Less skilled care needed continuously to enable the member to remain at home is covered as routine home care. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions • Divide the continuous home care per diem rate by 24 hours to calculate an hourly rate. For every hour or part of an hour of continuous care furnished, the IHCP reimburses the hourly rate to the hospice provider, up to 24 hours a day. • One hour equals one unit of service. Revenue Code 653: Routine Home Care Delivered in a Nursing Facility • The IHCP pays the hospice provider at the routine home care rate for each day the member is in an NF under the care of the hospice provider and not receiving continuous home care. • The IHCP pays this rate without regard to the volume or intensity of routine home care service on any given day. • In addition, the IHCP pays the hospice provider 95 percent of the lowest NF per diem to cover room and board costs incurred by the contracted NF. The provider should bill only normal and customary routine home care amounts as the billed amount; IndianaAIM calculates 95 percent of the lowest NF per diem and pays accordingly. • Nursing facility room and board are not billable for the date of death. • Providers also cannot bill for NF room and board for the date the member is physically discharged from the NF. • One day equals one unit of service. Revenue Code 654: Continuous Home Care Delivered in a Nursing Facility • As in the private home setting, divide the continuous home care rate by 24 hours to calculate an hourly rate. For every hour or part of an hour of continuous care furnished, the IHCP reimburses the hourly rate to the hospice provider, up to 24 hours a day. • All limitations listed for the private home setting also apply in the NF setting. • In addition, the IHCP pays the hospice an additional 95 percent of the NF case mix rate to cover room and board costs incurred by the contracted NF. • Providers cannot bill for NF room and board for the date of death. • Providers also cannot bill for NF room and board for the date the member is physically discharged from the NF. • One hour equals one unit of service. Revenue Code 655: Inpatient Respite Care • The IHCP pays the hospice provider at the inpatient respite care rate for each day the member is in an approved inpatient facility and is receiving respite care. • Respite care is short-term inpatient care provided to the member only when necessary to relieve the family members or other people caring for the member. Respite care may be provided only on an occasional basis. • The IHCP pays for respite care for a maximum of five consecutive days at a time, including the date of admission but not counting the day of discharge. • The IHCP pays for the sixth and any subsequent days at the routine home care rate. • This service applies only to members who normally reside in private homes. • The additional amount for room and board is not available for members receiving respite care. • One day equals one unit of service. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-65 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions • Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual According to 405 IAC 1-16-2(i), when a recipient is receiving general inpatient or inpatient respite care, the applicable inpatient rate (general or respite) is paid for the date of admission and all subsequent inpatient days except the day on which the patient is discharged. For the day of discharge, the appropriate home care rate is paid unless the patient dies as an inpatient. In the case where the member is discharged deceased, the applicable inpatient rate (general or respite) is paid for the date of discharge. Revenue Code 656: General Inpatient Hospice Care • The IHCP pays the hospice provider at the general inpatient hospice rate for each day the member is in an approved inpatient hospice facility and is receiving general inpatient hospice care for pain control, or acute or chronic symptom management, that cannot be managed in other settings. • This service applies only to members who normally reside in private homes. • The additional amount for room and board is not available for members receiving respite care. • One day equals one unit of service. • According to 405 IAC 1-16-2(i), when a recipient is receiving general inpatient or inpatient respite care, the applicable inpatient rate (general or respite) is paid for the date of admission and all subsequent inpatient days except the day on which the patient is discharged. For the day of discharge, the appropriate home care rate is paid unless the patient dies as an inpatient. In the case where the member is discharged deceased, the applicable inpatient rate (general or respite) is paid for the date of discharge. Revenue Code 657: Hospice Direct Care Physician Services • The IHCP reimburses on a fee-for-service (FFS) basis for physician services provided by a physician who is an employee of the hospice provider or subcontracted by the hospice. The hospice provider bills for these services under the hospice NPI. • Providers can bill this revenue code on the same day as other hospice revenue codes. • One day equals one unit of service. Revenue Code 659: Dually Eligible Nursing Facility Members Only • Use this revenue code for dually eligible members residing in an NF. • This code represents the room and board portion of the hospice per diem. • The IHCP pays the hospice provider an additional 95 percent of the NF case mix rate to cover room and board costs incurred by the contracted NF. • Revenue code 659 must not be billed with the following hospice-related revenue codes: 651, 652, 653, 654, 655, and 656. • Providers cannot bill for NF room and board for the date of death. • Providers also cannot bill for NF room and board for the date the member is physically discharged from the nursing facility. • One day equals one unit of service. Use of Condition Code 07 by Nonhospice Providers Billing Medicare for Nonterminal Conditions for a Medicare Hospice Beneficiary For Medicare beneficiaries, the Medicare Program specifies that nonhospice providers bill Medicare directly by using condition code 07 when the nonhospice provider delivers Medicare-covered services 8-66 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions to treat the nonterminal condition of a Medicare hospice beneficiary. This policy also applies to dually eligible Medicare and IHCP hospice members because the IHCP is the payer of last resort. The nonhospice provider must bill Medicare using condition code 07 in fields 18-24 on the UB-04. The Medicare Program stipulates that nonhospice providers are subject to recovery of overpayments and possible referral for fraud and abuse investigation if a pattern of incorrect use of condition code 07 is determined. Hospice or NF providers with questions about proper use of condition code 07 or a case-specific question involving a Medicare hospice beneficiary, whether the member is Medicare only or a dually eligible Medicare and IHCP hospice member, may contact the Medicare Part A Intermediary for Indiana at 1-800-633-4227. Because the IHCP is the payer of last resort, hospice providers and nursing facilities serving dually eligible Medicare and IHCP hospice members must bill Medicare first for nonhospice services, according to the parameters established by Medicare. Hospice Care in Group Homes Medicaid-eligible group home members can elect the Medicaid hospice program per the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The hospice should bill Medicaid for the hospice services and the group home can bill Medicaid directly for the group home per diem rate. Claims for Group homes were denied by IndianaAIM with error code 2027 – Hospice Recipient Being Billed for Non-Hospice Services. IndianaAIM has been updated and group homes should not encounter any denials for error code 2027. Hospice and group home providers should coordinate the overall care for the group home member. It is the responsibility of the hospice to provide all hospice-covered services in frequency and scope to care for the terminal illness and related conditions. Furthermore, the hospice should not delegate any hospice core services to group home staff. Any questions about the Medicaid hospice program should be directed to Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) Division of Aging at (317) 233-1956. Physician Services under Revenue Codes 651 through 655 Reimbursement for Physician Services The basic payment rates for hospice care represent full reimbursement to the hospice provider for covered services related to the treatment of the patient’s terminal illness. Covered services include the administrative and general activities performed by physicians who are employees of, or working under arrangements made with, the hospice provider. The physician who serves as the medical director and the physician member of the hospice interdisciplinary group generally performs the following group activities: • Establishment of governing policies • Participation in the establishment of plans of care • Periodic review and update of plans of care • Supervision of care and services The costs for these services are included in the reimbursement rates for the following: • Continuous home care, revenue code 652 or 654 • Inpatient respite care, revenue code 655 • Routine home care, revenue code 651 or 653 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-67 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Physician Services under Revenue Code 657 Bill reimbursement for a hospice-employed physician’s direct patient services, not rendered by a hospice physician volunteer, as an additional service by the hospice provider, using the hospice NPI. The hospice may bill only direct patient care physician services. Laboratory and X-ray services are included in the hospice daily rates. Prior-Authorized Physician Services The IHCP reimburses a physician’s direct patient services not rendered by a hospice physician volunteer as an additional payment, in accordance with the usual IHCP reimbursement methodology for physician services. The hospice must not bill these services under the hospice NPI. An attending physician may bill only the physician’s personal professional services. Do not include the costs for services, such as laboratory or X-ray, on the attending physician’s billed charges when those services relate to the terminal condition. Include these costs in the daily hospice care rates because they are expressly the responsibility of the hospice provider. Providers may bill independent physician services on the CMS-1500 claim form or 837P transaction. Hospice Contracts with Other Entities for Hospice-related Services State statute requires the IHCP hospice program to mirror the coverage and reimbursement methodology of the Medicare hospice program. Medicare and Medicaid certified hospice providers must be certified by Medicare and licensed by ISDH before enrollment in the IHCP. They are required to comply with the the Medicare hospice Conditions of Participation at 42 CFR Part 418. The hospice provider is required to adhere to certain contractual responsibilities when entering a contract with a nonhospice provider for a service related to the member’s terminal illness or related conditions. The contract requires the nonhospice provider to bill the hospice for those services at the fair market value rate noted in the contract. The nonhospice provider must not bill the IHCP for those services separately, because this would be duplicate billing and subject the nonhospice provider to recoupment. Volunteer Physician Services Volunteer physician services are excluded from reimbursement. However, a physician who provides volunteer services to a hospice may receive reimbursement for nonvolunteer services provided to hospice patients. In determining which services are furnished on a volunteer basis and which are not, a physician must treat IHCP patients on the same basis as other hospice patients. For example, a physician cannot designate all physician services rendered to non-IHCP patients as volunteer services, and at the same time seek payment for all physician services rendered to IHCP patients. Emergency Services If emergency services are related to the terminal illness, and the hospice member has not revoked the hospice benefit, the hospice provider is responsible for hospital and transportation charges associated with all emergency services provided. If the emergency services are unrelated to the terminal illness, the IHCP may reimburse the transportation and hospital claims associated with the emergency services. 8-68 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Billing the Programs as the Payer of Last Resort The IHCP is always the payer of last resort. Therefore, the hospice provider must first bill other payer sources before billing the IHCP. The following scenarios for Traditional Medicaid-only hospice members and dually eligible Medicare and Traditional Medicaid hospice members provide guidelines for hospice providers. Traditional Medicaid-Only – Hospice Member Residing in the Private Home If the Traditional Medicaid-only hospice member has private insurance, the hospice provider must first bill the private insurance for hospice services. When the private insurance company denies or partially pays the claim, the hospice provider can bill the IHCP for the remaining balance for hospice services. If the private insurance company has denied payment for hospice services, in whole or in part, the hospice provider must complete a UB-04, and send, as an attachment to the claim, a copy of the notice from the private insurance company that outlines the denial of payment for those dates of service. On receipt of the attachment, the IHCP processes the claim for payment. Traditional Medicaid-Only – Hospice Member Residing in a Nursing Facility If the Traditional Medicaid-only hospice member has private insurance, the hospice provider must bill the private insurance company first for the hospice services and the room and board services. When the private insurance company denies or partially pays the claim, the hospice provider bills the IHCP for the remaining balance of the hospice services and the room and board services. The hospice provider must attach to the UB-04 a copy of the notice from the private insurance company that outlines denial of payment for those dates of service. On receipt of the UB-04, the IHCP processes the claim for payment. If the member has private insurance, the hospice provider must bill the private insurance company first, and then bill Medicare for the outstanding balance, according to the guidelines established by Medicare. When billing for a date of service that is the same as the date of death, hospice providers must bill occurrence code 51 in field 31 of the UB-04 claim form, along with the date of death. The IHCP only pays for hospice services for the date of death when the services are billed with occurrence code 51 and revenue codes 653 and 654. If providers bill revenue codes 653 and 654 without occurrence code 51, the claim denies. When providers bill revenue code 659, the claim denies even if it is billed with occurrence code 51. Dually Eligible Medicare and Traditional Medicaid – Hospice Member Residing in a Private Home For the dually eligible Medicare and Traditional Medicaid hospice member, the hospice provider must bill Medicare for the hospice services and the IHCP for the outstanding balance. Dually Eligible Medicare and Traditional Medicaid Hospice Member Residing in a Nursing Facility If a dually eligible Medicare hospice member has private insurance, Medicare and Traditional Medicaid require that the hospice provider bill the private insurance company first for the hospice services and the room and board services. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-69 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual If the private insurance company denies payment, in whole or in part, for the hospice services, the hospice provider must then bill Medicare for the outstanding balance according to the billing guidelines established by Medicare. If the private insurance company denies payment, in whole or in part, for the NF room and board services, the hospice provider must bill the IHCP for the outstanding balance. The hospice provider must attach to the UB-04 a copy of the notice from the private insurance company that outlines denial of payment for those dates of service. CHOICE and Hospice Members The Community and Home Option to Institutional Care for the Elderly and Disabled (CHOICE) Program is a state-funded program administered by the Division of Aging (DA). Because CHOICE is funded 100 percent by the state of Indiana, DA stipulates that CHOICE is the payer of last resort. Providers must bill the IHCP and any other insurance carrier prior to submitting charges to the CHOICE Program. Medicare and Traditional Medicaid Eligibility Changes during the Month A Traditional Medicaid-only hospice member residing in an NF may become Medicare-eligible during a one-month billing period. Inversely, a dually eligible Medicare and Traditional Medicaid hospice member residing in an NF may become a Traditional Medicaid-only hospice member during a onemonth billing period. The change in eligibility status changes how the hospice provider completes the UB-04 for those dates of service. Traditional Medicaid-Only – Hospice Member Who Becomes Medicare-Eligible in Nursing Facility The hospice provider must complete the necessary paperwork to enroll the Traditional Medicaid-only hospice member in the Medicare hospice benefit once the member has become Medicare eligible. The hospice provider must also submit the Change in Status of Medicaid Hospice Patient form to the appropriate MCO or care management organization (CMO) Hospice Authorization Unit to inform the IHCP that the member has become Medicare eligible. The following example provides guidelines for completing the UB-04 claim form for this scenario. For this example, July 15 is the date the individual is considered dually eligible for Medicare and Traditional Medicaid. The hospice provider plans to bill the IHCP for the entire month of July. From July 1 to July 14, the hospice member was a Traditional Medicaid-only member, so the hospice provider must bill using revenue code 653 or revenue code 654 for those dates of service. Revenue codes 653 and 654 include the additional room and board per diem to cover costs incurred by the contracted NF. From July 15 to July 31, the hospice member is considered dually eligible for Medicare and Traditional Medicaid, and the hospice provider must bill using revenue code 659 for the additional room and board per diem for those dates of service. The hospice provider must bill Medicare for the hospice services. 8-70 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Dually Eligible Medicare/Traditional Medicaid – Member in a Nursing Facility Who Becomes Traditional Medicaid-Only The hospice provider must complete the Change in Status of Medicaid Hospice Patient form to inform the IHCP that the individual is no longer Medicare-eligible. The hospice provider must submit the Change in Status of Medicaid Hospice Patient form to the appropriate MCO or CMO Hospice Authorization Unit. The following example provides guidelines for completing the UB-04 for this scenario. For this example, July 15 is the date the member is eligible for Traditional Medicaid only. The hospice provider plans to bill the IHCP for the entire month of July. From July 1 through July 14, the hospice member is dually eligible for Medicare and Traditional Medicaid, so the hospice provider must bill the IHCP using revenue code 659 for the additional room and board per diem for these dates of service. The hospice provider must bill Medicare for the hospice services. From July 15 through July 31, the hospice member is eligible for Traditional Medicaid only, so the hospice provider must bill the IHCP for the hospice services and the additional room and board per diem for these dates of service. The hospice provider must use revenue codes 653 or 654 for those dates of service. Revenue codes 653 and 654 include the additional room and board per diem to cover costs incurred by the contracted NF. Billing a Continuation Claim Using UB-04 Claim Form The UB-04 claim form has 22 lines; therefore, providers cannot bill an entire month on one page. The hospice provider can prepare a continuation claim, which is a claim with more than one UB-04 claim form completed as if it is one claim, to be processed for payment by the IHCP. Continuation claims cannot be more than three pages long and contain 66 detail lines. The hospice provider must complete the continuation claim as follows: • Mark the UB-04 claim form page numbers in the area provided on line 23. • Complete the first 22 lines on page one of the UB-04 claim form. • Do not subtotal the first page of the claim. Total only the last page of the continuation claim, or IndianaAIM reads the claim as two claims rather than one. • Complete the subsequent UB-04 claims form for the remaining dates of service of the month. • Provide a grand total for the continuation claim on the last page of the UB-04 claim form in the space provided at the bottom of field locator 47. If hospice providers prefer not to complete a continuation claim, they can complete separate UB-04 claim forms. The hospice provider completes a second UB-04 claim form for the remaining days of service of the month, totals the daily amounts, and enters the total charges in the space provided for a grand total on each form. Hospice Provider Reimbursement Terms It is not mandatory for nursing facility (NF) providers to reserve beds; however, the OMPP continues to reimburse hospice providers at one-half the NF case mix reimbursement rate for reserving NF beds for hospice members, when the occupancy criteria are met as set forth in 405 IAC 5-34-12. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-71 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual It is the hospice agency’s responsibility to confirm the NF occupancy percentage on the date that the leave of absence begins. Hospice providers can bill the IHCP for leave days only when the NF occupancy percentage is at 90 percent or greater on the day the leave begins. If the NF occupancy percentage falls below 90 percent following the date the leave began, the hospice provider can continue to bill the 50 percent of the NF’s case mix reimbursement rate for the entire hospital or therapeutic leave. When the NF occupancy is below 90 percent on the date that the leave of absence begins, the hospice agency should use revenue code 180 to bill the IHCP for leave days. Revenue code 180 is a nonpaid revenue code used to generate an IHCP denial, and it can be used when charging a resident or legal guardian for nonreimbursed bed-hold days. The explanation of benefits (EOB) detail for revenue code 180 lists the claim as denied, with EOB 4215 – Leave days not a covered service for this bill type – nursing facility occupancy less than 90 percent. When a member who receives hospice services and resides in a nursing facility has dual eligibility, the hospice provider must bill claims to the IHCP using revenue code 659 – Hospice services/other/dual eligibility NF recipients only. A member is considered dually eligible if he or she is enrolled in both Medicare and Medicaid. The member may also have other commercial insurance. When verifying member eligibility, members who are dually eligible will be listed as being qualified Medicare beneficiaries (QMB-Also). When a member who receives hospice services and resides in a nursing facility is not dually eligible (not a QMB), the hospice provider must bill claims to the IHCP using revenue code 653 – Hospice services/routine home care delivered in a nursing facility or 654 – Hospice services/continuous home care delivered in a nursing facility. The provider must use revenue code 653 or 654 even if the member has other commercial insurance and Medicaid. If other insurance pays for the hospice care services in full, the hospice provider shall only receive payment from the IHCP for room and board services. If other insurance and the IHCP reimbursed the provider for hospice care services, the provider was overpaid and must refund the overpayment to the IHCP. To refund the overpayment, the provider must complete a Hospice Accounts Receivable Refund Adjustment form. The form is located on the following page of the IHCP Web site: http://provider.indianamedicaid.com/provider-specific-information/hospice/forms.aspx. Mail the completed form and a check for the overpayment amount to: HP Refunds P.O. Box 2303 Dept. 130 Indianapolis, IN 46206-2303 The following example shows how to calculate the amount of an overpayment for revenue code 653 or 654.

The IHCP should have reimbursed the provider $3,539.55 (Total Medicaid Reimbursement for Room and Board, $3,015.03, plus the Total Medicaid Reimbursement for Hospice, $524.52). The provider was overpaid and must refund the IHCP $394.97 ($3,934.52 minus $3,539.55). Note: An individual form must be completed for each claim that is being refunded. Inpatient Hospital Services Coverage Inpatient services, such as acute care, mental health, and rehabilitation care, are covered when the services are provided or prescribed by a physician, and when the services are medically necessary for the diagnosis or treatment of the member’s condition. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-73 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Billing Procedures Mail inpatient hospital claims to the following address for processing: HP Inpatient Hospital Claims P.O. Box 7271 Indianapolis, IN 46207-7271 Note: For RBMC members, bill the appropriate MCO. Specified Coding Level The IHCP adheres to the coding guidelines published in the Coding Clinic for ICD-9-CM, a publication of the American Hospital Association, Central Office. The following clarifications may assist providers using the UB-04 claim form: • Use the highest level of specificity when billing diagnostic and procedure codes. • Assign three-digit codes only if no four-digit codes are within that code category. • Assign four-digit codes only if no fifth-digit subclassification is available for that category. • Assign the fifth-digit subclassification code for those categories where a fifth digit exists. • Use the codes labeled other specified or not elsewhere classified (NEC), unspecified, or not otherwise specified (NOS) only when the diagnostic statement or a thorough review of the medical record does not provide adequate information to permit assignment of a more specific code. • Use the code assignment for other or NEC when the information at hand specifies a condition but no separate code for that condition is provided. • Use unspecified or NOS when the information at hand does not permit either a more specific or other code assignment. Revenue Code Itemization Although the IHCP reimburses inpatient hospital services using a diagnosis-related group (DRG)/Level of Care (LOC) methodology, the IHCP requires a complete itemization of services performed using appropriate revenue codes in field 42. The revenue code reveals crucial information about the type of service provided during the inpatient stay. Therefore, providers need to ensure that each claim properly identifies the appropriate revenue code. The revenue code that is used must reflect the setting in which the care was delivered. For example, providers must use revenue code 20X to submit a claim for services provided to patients admitted to an Intensive Care Unit. Continued Bill If a complete itemization of services requires multiple UB-04 claim forms, providers must enter the total charges on the last page of the bill, not at the bottom of each UB-04 claim form: 8-74 • Mark the UB-04 claim form page number in the area provided on line 23. As many as three pages can be submitted as one claim. • Complete the first 22 lines on page one of the UB-04 claim form. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions • Do not subtotal the first page of the claim. Total only the last page of the continuation claim, or IndianaAIM reads the claim as two claims rather than one. • Complete the subsequent UB-04 claim forms for the remaining dates of service of the month. Provide a grand total for the continuation claim on the last page of the UB-04 claim form in the space provided at the bottom of field 47. Medical Education Reimbursement The change in medical education reimbursement is effective for encounter or shadow claims (claims that are forwarded to HP after being adjudicated by a managed care organization) received from the MCOs with a From Date of Service of January 1, 2010, and after. Based upon shadow claims data received from the MCOs, HP Enterprise Services processes and issues the medical education payments to the hospitals. All medical education payment calculations are made once the MCO has posted the claim payment information, and the shadow claim has been posted to IndianaAIM. Providers should allow 30 – 45 calendar days from the time the MCO has processed the claim for the medical education payment to be posted to the fee-for-service Remittance Advice from HP. Definition of Principal Diagnosis The principal diagnosis is defined as the condition established, after study, that is chiefly responsible for the admission of the patient to the hospital. When providers bill for inpatient services, form field 69 requires the principal diagnosis. Note: The IHCP prohibits use of V codes as a principal diagnosis on a UB-04 claim form, except when using V codes as a principal diagnosis code for newborns, rehabilitation, or chemotherapy. Reporting Other Diagnoses Providers can enter additional diagnosis codes in fields 67 A-Q to indicate all conditions that coexist at the time of admission, that develop subsequently, or that affect the treatment received or length of stay. Providers must exclude diagnoses that relate to an earlier episode and have no bearing on the current hospital stay. The IHCP defines other diagnoses as additional conditions that affect patient care in terms of requiring the following: • Clinical evaluation • Diagnostic procedures • Extended length of hospital stay • Increased nursing care or monitoring • Therapeutic treatment Inpatient Blood Factor Claims Indiana Medicaid will reimburse providers for claims for blood factor products administered during inpatient hospital stays at the lowest of the following: • Estimated Acquisition Cost (84 percent of the Average Wholesale Price) Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-75 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual • Inpatient blood factor – State maximum allowable cost (MAC) • Submitted charge Effective for claims with administration dates on or after October 12, 2008, blood factor that is used during inpatient hospital stays should now be billed separately from the inpatient hospital diagnosisrelated group or Level of Care claim. If a patient is admitted prior to October 12, 2008, and blood factor is administered prior to October 12, 2008, the charges should remain on the inpatient claim. Hospitals are prohibited from submitting any charges for blood factor administered on or after October 12, 2008, during inpatient hospital stays on their UB-04 claims. Instead, hospitals should submit their claims for blood factor used during inpatient hospital stays on the CMS-1500 claim form and should include both the NDC and the NDC quantity of the blood factor on the claims. Hospitals should use their NPIs for their facility on their CMS-1500 claim forms. Claims with quantities greater than 9,999.99 units must be special batched because the NDC code will be the same for each detail and will deny for duplicates. These claims must be sent to the following address for special handling: HP Provider Written Correspondence P.O. Box 7263 Indianapolis, IN 46207-7263 The Place of Service (POS) entered in field 24B must be 21 – Inpatient Hospital for blood factor administered during an inpatient hospital stay. If Medicare covers the blood factor product, the provider cannot bill it separately. If Medicare does not cover the blood factor product, the provider needs to attach documentation, such as an MRN, to the claim to show where the factor charges are denied or not covered under Medicare.

Hospital-Acquired Conditions Effective for inpatient and inpatient crossover claims with a ‘From’ date of service on or after October 1, 2009, the IHCP adopted a hospital-acquired conditions (HAC) policy for Medicaid claims using our existing version 18.0 of the All Patient Diagnosis-Related Group (AP DRG) grouper. Hospitals are required to report whether each diagnosis on a Medicaid claim was present on admission. Claims submitted without the required present on admission (POA) indicators will be denied. For claims containing secondary diagnoses that are included in the list of HACs in Table 8.12 and for which the condition was not present on admission, the HAC secondary diagnosis will not be used for AP DRG grouping. That is, the claim will be paid as though any secondary diagnoses included in Table 8.12 were not present on the claim.

The OMPP will not pay the complicating condition/major complicating condition (CC/MCC) for HACs. The POA indicator of “1” is only applicable to diagnoses exempt from POA reporting and should not be applied to any codes on the HAC list. Any claims using the POA indicator of “1” with a nonexempt diagnosis will deny, and providers will need to correct and resubmit the claim for reimbursement. Claims containing HAC diagnoses with POA indicators of “Y” or “W” will process through the AP DRG grouper and process per normal inpatient policy. Claims submitted by a nonexempt hospital that do not include a POA indicator for the principal and any secondary diagnoses will be denied. The provider will need to correct and resubmit the claim. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-81 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Exempt Hospitals POA indicator reporting is mandatory for all Medicaid claims involving inpatient admission to general acute care hospitals with a primary specialty of Acute Care – 010. However, the following types of hospitals are EXEMPT from the Medicaid HAC policy and POA indicator reporting: • Critical access hospitals (CAHs) • Long-term acute care hospitals (LTACs) (primary specialty 013) • Inpatient psychiatric hospitals (primary specialty 011) • Inpatient rehabilitation facilities (primary specialty 012) Psychiatric or rehabilitation units of acute care hospitals, also known as a distinct part of an acute care hospital, enrolled with primary specialty 010 are required to submit the POA indicator on their claims. The list of critical access hospitals was identified using information obtained from Medicare. Hospitals that are not sure of their CAH status should contact the HP Provider Enrollment Department at 1-877707-5750 for confirmation. Present on Admission Indicator POA is defined as “present” at the time the order for inpatient admission occurs. Conditions that develop during an outpatient encounter, including emergency department, observation, or outpatient surgery, are considered POA. A POA indicator must be assigned to principal and secondary diagnoses (as defined in Section II of the Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting). The CMS does not require a POA indicator for an external cause of injury code unless it is being reported as an “other diagnosis.” Therefore, the IHCP does not require a POA indicator in the External Cause of Injury field locator 72. If a POA indicator is entered in the External Cause of Injury field, it will be ignored and not used for AP DRG grouping. Common POA Explanations of Benefits The following table lists common POA explanations of benefits (EOBs). Table 8.13 – Common POA EOBs EOB Code EOB Description 4250 The Principal Diagnosis POA Indicator is Missing or Invalid – this edit will post to the claim when the provider has omitted the POA or submitted an invalid POA indicator. 4251-4275 The Secondary Diagnosis POA is Missing or Invalid – these EOBs will post to the claim for secondary diagnoses 1-24 if the POA is missing or invalid. The specific diagnosis field will be identified in the EOB message. Example: • 4251 – First Secondary Diagnosis POA Missing or Invalid • 4252 – Second Secondary Diagnosis POA Missing or Invalid Hospital Acquired Condition List The current list of HACs was published by the CMS in the August 19, 2008, FFY 2009 Inpatient Prospective Payment System final rule (73 FR 48471) and includes diagnoses listed in Chapter 8. The IHCP will continue to follow CMS’ HAC determinations, including any future additions or changes to 8-82 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions the current list of HAC conditions, as well as diagnosis codes that are exempt from HAC reporting. The list of exempt diagnosis codes can be found in the ICD-9-CM Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting, effective October 1, 2008, at http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/icd9/icdguide08.pdf. Medicare Exhaust Claims Benefits Exhausted Prior to Inpatient Admission The IHCP reimburses acute care hospitals for dually eligible (Medicare and Medicaid) IHCP members who exhaust their inpatient hospital Medicare Part A benefits prior to admission to acute care hospitals. When a Medicare Part A stay is exhausted by Medicare prior to admission, providers must bill the date of admission through the date of discharge on the UB-04 claim form. Do not bill the IHCP for partial inpatient stays. The Medicare Remittance Notification (MRN) must be submitted with the claim to show benefits were exhausted prior to the date of admission. Providers must bill services payable to Medicare Part B before billing the exhaust claim to Medicaid. Because these claims are considered Medicaid primary claims, all IHCP filing limit rules apply. Refer to Chapter 10 for information about waiving filing limit procedures and supplying appropriate documentation for claim adjudication. Benefits Exhausted During an Inpatient Stay When a dually eligible member exhausts Medicare Part A benefits during an inpatient stay, the claim automatically crosses over from Medicare and adjudicates according to the IHCP inpatient crossover reimbursement methodology. Once the coinsurance and deductible amounts are considered, no additional payment will be made on the claim. This is also true for claims that do not automatically cross over but are submitted via the Web or paper. The IHCP will continue to reimburse Medicare Part B charges, as long as the revenue codes billed on the Medicare Part A and B claims are not the same. If the same revenue codes appear on both claims, the claim will deny for duplicate billing. Medicare Replacement Plans Claim Submission Instructions The following instructions apply when submitting claims for service adjudicated by a Medicare health maintenance organization (HMO) replacement plan: • Submit claims to the regular IHCP claims process address. Do not send the claims to the medical or institutional crossover post office boxes. - CMS-1500 claims: Enter the payment received from the Medicare replacement plan in field 29, not field 22. Do not enter any amounts in field 22. - UB-04 claims: Enter the payment received from the Medicare replacement plan in the Prior Payment form locators 54 A through C, as appropriate. Enter the words “Replacement Plan” in the Payer Name form locators 50A through 50C, as appropriate. Do not enter any reference to Medicare in Payer Name form locators, as this causes the claim to be treated as a crossover claim. - With every claim form, submit a copy of the Medicare replacement plan Remittance Advice (RA), Medicare Remittance Notice (MRN), or the explanation of payment/benefits from the replacement policy carrier. - The words “Medicare Replacement Policy” must be written on the top of the claim form and on the top of the attachments submitted with the claim. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-83 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions • Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Claims may be submitted electronically using the above process. The words “Medicare Replacement Policy” must be written at the top of the attachment. These claims are processed as third-party liability (TPL) claims. Standard Medicaid prior authorization rules apply to these claims, as do timely filing limits. Observation Billing Providers can retain members for more than one 23-hour observation period when the member has not met criteria for admission but the treating physician believes that allowing the member to leave the facility would likely put the member at serious risk. This observation period can last not more than three days or 72 hours and is billed as an outpatient claim. For all services rendered as outpatient procedures and prior to admission, providers must bill with a date of service corresponding to the date the procedure was performed in fields 74 and 74a-e of the UB-04. Transfers Because special payment policies apply to certain transfer cases that are to be reimbursed using the DRG payment methodology, it is important for providers to identify the transferring hospital on the UB-04 claim form. Indicate the following to identify the transferring hospital in field 17: 8-84 • Patient status 02 – Discharged or transferred to another short-term general hospital for inpatient care. • Patient status 03 – Discharged or transferred to skilled nursing facility (SNF). • Patient status 04 – Discharged or transferred to an intermediate care facility (ICF). • Patient status 05 – Discharged or transferred to a designated cancer center or children’s hospital. • Patient status 06 – Discharged or transferred to home under care of organized home health service organization. • Patient status 08 – Discharged or transferred to home under care of a home intravenous provider. • Patient status 43 – Discharged or transferred to a federal healthcare facility. • Patient status 61 – Discharged or transferred within this institution to hospital-based Medicare swing bed. • Patient status 62 – Discharged or transferred to another rehabilitation facility including discharge planning units of hospital. • Patient status 63 – Discharged or transferred to a long-term care hospital. • Patient status 64 – Discharged or transferred to a nursing facility – Medicaid-certified but not Medicare-certified. • Patient status 65 – Discharged or transferred to a psychiatric hospital or psychiatric distinct part unit of a hospital. • Patient status 66 – Discharged or transferred to a critical access hospital. • Patient status 70 – Discharged or transferred to another type of healthcare institution not defined elsewhere in code list. • Patient status 71 – Discharged, transferred, or referred to another institution for outpatient services when specified by the discharge plan of care. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions • Patient status 72 – Discharged, transferred, or referred within this facility for outpatient services when specified by the discharge plan of care. • Providers are not to bill separately for two DRG reimbursed inpatient stays when a member is transferred from one unit of the hospital to another unit within the same inpatient facility. Inpatient transfer claims from one inpatient unit of the hospital to another inpatient unit should be billed on one claim form as they are to be considered part of the same episode of care. Exclusions to this policy are claims priced according to the Level of Care (LOC) reimbursement methodology. Providers must combine the original admission and subsequent return stay on one claim for billing purposes. Transfer claims continue to be subject to retrospective review to ensure appropriate billing and payment. Also, claims for patients that are transferred within 24 hours of admission are to be billed as outpatient claims. Claims grouping to DRG 639 – Neonate, transferred < 5 days old, born here, and DRG 640 – Neonate, transferred < 5 days old, not born here, are exempt from this policy. Special payment policies apply to transfer cases paid using the DRG methodology. The receiving hospital, or transferee hospital, is reimbursed according to the DRG or Level of Care (LOC) methodology, whichever is applicable. Transferring hospitals are reimbursed a DRG-prorated daily rate for each day, not to exceed the full DRG amount. The IHCP calculates the DRG daily rate by dividing the DRG rate by the average length of stay. The full payment to the transferring hospital is the sum of the DRG daily rate, the capital per diem rate (up to the DRG average length of stay), and the medical education per diem rate (up to the DRG average length of stay). Transferring hospitals are eligible for outlier payments. To ensure accurate reimbursement for transfer cases, the appropriate discharge status code of 02, 05, 62, 63, 65, 66, and 70 must be placed in the UB-04 form locator 17 on the claim form. For detailed reimbursement information about transfers and readmissions, refer to Chapter 7 of this manual. Inpatient Claims for Spend-down Members Spanning Multiple Months When a spend-down member has an inpatient stay that spans multiple months, and the date of the discharge is the first day of a month, the claims are denied for explanation of benefits (EOB) 3005 – The claim covers multiple months and spend-down has not been met for all months billed on the claim. Submit these claims to the Written Correspondence Unit for processing along with an attached cover letter referencing this process. Submit claims that span multiple months with a date of discharge that is not the first of the month to the normal claims address. For dates of service prior to January 1, 2006, submit an 8A Form attached for each month in which the member was in the facility on the spenddown met date. Effective January 1, 2006, inpatient claims with dates of services that span more than one month are prorated on a daily basis, not counting the discharge date. Spend-down is credited in each month based on the number of days of service reported on the claim for each month minus the day of discharge. The reimbursement is based on the total claim allowed minus the sum of the spend-down credits. Inpatient Mental Health 405 IAC 5-20-1 (b) (c) (d) states that PA is required for all inpatient psychiatric admissions, including admissions for substance abuse. The IHCP reimburses providers for inpatient psychiatric services provided to an eligible individual between 22 and 65 years old only in a certified psychiatric hospital of 16 beds or less. If the member is 22 years old, and began receiving inpatient psychiatric services immediately before the member’s 22nd birthday, inpatient psychiatric services are available. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-85 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual According to 405 IAC 5-20-3, a psychiatric hospital must meet the following conditions to be reimbursed for inpatient mental health services: • The facility must be enrolled in the IHCP. • The facility must maintain special medical records for psychiatric hospitals as required by 42 CFR 482.61. • The facility must provide services under the direction of a licensed physician. • The facility must meet federal certification standards for psychiatric hospitals. • The facility must meet utilization review requirements. The IHCP also reimburses providers for reserving beds in a psychiatric hospital but not in a general acute care hospital for hospitalization of Traditional Medicaid members, as well as for reserving beds for a therapeutic leave of absence. In both instances, the IHCP reimburses the facility at one-half the regular per diem rate. 405 IAC 5-20-2 provides specific criteria about the reservation of beds in an inpatient psychiatric facility in Appendix A, Rule 20. The IHCP reimburses for inpatient psychiatric services provided by facilities that are freestanding, or distinct parts at an all-inclusive, statewide per diem rate that includes routine, ancillary, and capital costs. The IHCP bases reimbursement for substance abuse and chemical dependency admissions on DRG payment methodology. Direct care services of physicians, including psychiatric evaluations, are excluded from the per diem rate and are billable separately by the rendering provider on the CMS-1500 claim form or 837P transaction. The per diem rate includes all other supplies and services provided to patients in inpatient psychiatric facilities, including services of health service providers in psychology (HSPP), clinical psychologists, and clinical social workers, regardless of whether salaried, contracted, or independent providers, and providers cannot bill these supplies and services separately. All mental health service admissions, including admissions for substance abuse and chemical dependency regardless of the setting, require a Certification of Need, Form 1261A. For nonemergency admissions, the IHCP must receive the 1261A form within 10 working days of the admission. For emergency admissions, the IHCP must receive the 1261A form within 14 working days of the admission. The 1261A form must include detailed information to document the admission. If the 1261A form does not meet the requirements, any claim associated with the admission is denied. Chapter 6 provides specific information about obtaining PA for inpatient psychiatric admissions. Providers must submit inpatient psychiatric claims using the revenue code that has been authorized for this admission. Up to and including date of service December 31, 2006, the IHCP carves out of the RBMC network any mental health services, including substance abuse treatment, rendered in freestanding psychiatric hospitals and pays them on an FFS basis. The carved-out definition in the Carved-Out Services subsection later in this chapter provides additional information. Providers should bill claims for mental health services in a freestanding psychiatric hospital on a UB-04 claim form; these claims are not the financial responsibility of the MCO. Inpatient mental health services, including substance abuse treatment, provided to RBMC network members in acute care facilities are the responsibility of the MCO in which the member is enrolled. On and after January 1, 2007, these services are the responsibility of the MCO in which the member belongs, excluding PRTF services and MRO services, which will continue to be carved out. 8-86 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Inpatient Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services Package C The IHCP covers inpatient mental health and substance abuse services when the services are medically necessary for the diagnosis or treatment of the member’s condition, except when provided in a mental health institution with more than 16 beds. Coding Claims for Premature Newborns Coding claims for premature newborns requires birth weight for the proper DRG assignment. The fifth digit of diagnosis codes 764 and 765 indicates birth weight. Use the following fifth-digit subclassification with categories 764 and 765 to denote birth weight. Table 8.14 lists birth weight codes. Table 8.14 – Birth Weight Codes Code Birth Weight 0 Unspecified weight 1 Less than 500 grams 2 500 grams – 749 grams 3 750 grams – 999 grams 4 1,000 grams – 1,249 grams 5 1,250 grams – 1,499 grams 6 1,500 grams – 1,749 grams 7 1,750 grams – 1,999 grams 8 2,000 grams – 2,499 grams 9 2,500 grams and over Do not use these codes as principal diagnosis codes. When a premature infant transfers to another hospital for observation, not for treatment for a specific illness, the receiving provider must enter the diagnosis code V71.8 – observation for other suspected conditions as the principal diagnosis. Unit and Age Limitations on Inpatient Neonatal and Pediatric Critical Care Services Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) Code 99298 – Subsequent intensive care, per day, for the evaluation and management of the recovering very low birth weight infant (present body weight less than 1500 grams). This CPT code is limited to one unit per day.

CPT Code 99294 – Subsequent inpatient pediatric critical care, per day, for the evaluation and management of a critically ill infant or young child, 29 days through 24 months of age. This code has an age limit of 0-2 years of age. This CPT code is limited to one unit per day. Providers rendering services under the RBMC program should also follow IHCP policy and CPT coding guidelines when billing these procedure codes. Stereotactic Radiosurgery The IHCP currently covers several types of Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) as represented by HCPCS codes G0173, G0251, G0339, G0340, and 77301U5. In addition, the IHCP covers preoperative planning under HCPCS code G0243 and 77301U5. Reimbursement for physician services is bundled into the preoperative planning service. Ventricular Assist Devices The IHCP has instituted changes to the medical necessity criteria for ventricular assist devices (VADs) and considers them medically necessary under the following conditions: 8-88 • The IHCP covers treatment of postcardiotomy cardiogenic shock when ventricular dysfunction continues after maximum medical therapy or as a means of myocardial recovery support for individuals who are unable to be weaned from cardiopulmonary bypass with maximal inotropic support and use of an intra-aortic balloon pump. • The IHCP covers bridge-to-transplant for members who meet the following criteria: - The member must be at risk of imminent death from nonreversible left ventricular failure (NYHA Class III or IV). - The member has received prior authorization for a heart transplant (excluding dual eligible members). - The member is listed as a candidate for heart transplantation by a Medicare- and Medicaidapproved heart transplant center. - If the VAD is implanted at a different site than the Medicare- and Medicaid-approved transplant center, the implanting site must receive written permission from the Medicare- or Medicaid-approved center where the patient is listed for transplant prior to implantation of the VAD. • The IHCP covers destination therapy for members who meet the following criteria: - The member must not be a candidate for a heart transplant. - The member must have chronic end-stage heart failure (NYHA Class IV) for at least 90 days, and have a life expectancy of fewer than two years. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual - - - Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions The member’s Class IV heart failure symptoms must have failed to respond to optimal medical therapy for at least 60 of the last 90 days. Medical therapy must include salt restriction, diuretics, digitalis, beta-blockers, and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) or angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors (if tolerated). Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction (LVEF) must be less than 25 percent. The member has demonstrated functional limitation with a peak oxygen consumption of less than 12ml/kg/min; or continued need for IV inotropic therapy due to symptomatic hypotension, decreasing renal function, or worsening pulmonary congestion. The member has the appropriate body size (greater than or equal to 1.5m2) to support the Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) implantation. VAD implantation must occur at a Medicare- and Medicaid-approved heart transplant center. A VAD is a covered service for postcardiotomy cardiogenic shock or bridge-to-transplant only if it has received approval from the FDA for the intended purpose, and only if it is used according to the FDAapproved labeling instructions for that intended purpose. A VAD is a covered service for destination therapy only if it has received approval from the FDA for destination therapy or as a bridge-totransplant, or has been implanted as part of an FDA investigational device exemption trial for one of these two indications. Noncovered Services • VADs are noncovered for all conditions not listed above. • Use of a non-FDA-approved VAD is considered investigational and is a noncovered service. • The artificial heart (for example, AbioCor, CardioWest) as a replacement heart for a diseased heart is noncovered by the IHCP. Prior Authorization VADs and their surgical implantation do not require PA. However, members who receive bridge-totransplant or destination therapy, and who can continue therapy on an outpatient basis, require accessory equipment for use with the VAD. The patient supplies and replacement equipment for the VAD require PA. Coding and Billing Instructions Tables 8.15 to 8.17 list the appropriate codes for billing implantation and removal of the VADs. The tables include the following: • Table 8.15 lists the diagnosis codes appropriate for implantation of a VAD. The diagnosis code should be billed on the UB-04 claim form with the corresponding ICD-9-CM procedure code. • Table 8.16 lists the applicable ICD-9-CM procedure codes for implantation, repair, and removal of a VAD. The ICD-9-CM code must be billed on the UB-04 claim form and is incorporated into the DRG payment. • Table 8.17 lists the applicable CPT codes for the physician component of the implantation and removal of a VAD. The CPT code should be billed on a CMS-1500 claim form or 837P electronic transaction.

The billing provider must use the revenue code 101 – All-inclusive room and board for the PA process and include it on the UB-04 claim form. The discharging hospital must enter the patient status code 63 in field 17 on the UB-04 claim form. This indicates the status of the patient as of the ending service date when the patient was discharged or transferred to a long-term care facility. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-91 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Coverage Inpatient long-term care (LTC) services are available to IHCP members who meet the threshold of nursing care needs required for admission to, or continued stay in, an IHCP-certified nursing facility. Additional information about LTC coverage and billing procedures is located in Chapter 14 of this manual. Billing Procedures Instructions for billing LTC facility services are separated into two subsections, based on the type of facility rendering the service. This section outlines billing instructions for NFs and intermediate care facilities for the mentally retarded (ICFs/MR). For detailed information about reimbursement for LTC facilities, refer to Chapter 7. Providers should mail LTC paper claims to the following address for processing: HP Nursing Home Claims P.O. Box 7271 Indianapolis, IN 46207-7271 NFs and ICFs/MR may bill using the UB-04, electronic 837I transaction, or Web interChange claim formats. If submitting paper claims, NFs must follow the general instructions for completing the UB04 claim form, as well as the specific instructions that follow. Package C LTC facility services are not covered for Package C members. Nursing Facility Services NFs bill for room and board charges using the applicable room and board revenue code. Acceptable room and board revenue codes include 110, 120, and 130. Revenue codes 180, 183, and 185 for leaveof-absence days are also acceptable. The OMPP uses a case mix reimbursement methodology based on the Resource Utilization Group (RUG)-III Classification of that member. The facility must maintain documentation in the medical record that substantiates the physical or behavior needs of the member as identified on the minimum data set (MDS). The RUG-III Classification is based on the MDS. All longterm care providers must have a State-approved Form 450B or OMPP Form 450B SA/DE on file in IndianaAIM for the appropriate provider number before billing services provided to a member. Nursing facilities cannot bill separately for medical and nonmedical supply items, personal care items, or therapies. Providers can bill parenteral or enteral services and therapies received by Medicare- and Traditional Medicaid-eligible members to Medicare and, subsequently, the IHCP as crossover claims on the appropriate claim form for these services. Inpatient care crossover services must be billed on the UB-04, 837 electronic, or Web interChange institutional claim format. Any inappropriate billing and reimbursement is subject to recoupment by the Surveillance and Utilization Review (SUR) Department. Providers can bill short-term stays of less than 30 days on discharge of the patient. Providers can bill long-term stays of 30 days or more monthly, or more frequently if desired. 8-92 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Member Liability Member liability is the term applied to the monetary amount that a Traditional Medicaid resident must contribute toward monthly care in the NF. The term personal resource contribution also indicates member liability. Calculating and assigning the member liability amount is a function of the local county office of the Division of Family Resources (DFR). Member information, including member liability or personal resource contribution reflected in IndianaAIM, is updated daily from the information relayed by the Indiana Client Eligibility System (ICES) at the county offices. Providers must apply current income to current needs. As an example, a Social Security benefit check received in October must be applied to October charges. The only exception is the direct deposit benefit check that is sometimes recorded by the bank at the end of one month instead of early in the next month when it would normally be received. Because most resources are available on a calendar month basis, all accounts that involve resource deductions must be billed on a calendar month basis, for example, June 1 through June 30, or July 1 through July 31. Note: Deduct patient resources from the payment in the month that the resources are received. The IHCP automatically deducts the member’s liability amount from the total reimbursement of the claim. The provider must not indicate the resource contribution anywhere on the claim form. When a member transfers between facilities during a billing period, the member liability is deducted from the first claim received and processed by IndianaAIM. Therefore, the facilities involved in the transfer must coordinate any liability deductions. Leave Days The IHCP reimburses for reserved beds for members provided that the criteria in 405 IAC 5-31-8 is met. Providers should use the appropriate room and board revenue code for the days the member was a patient in the NF, and they should use the applicable leave-of-absence revenue code for the days the member was out of the NF. The IHCP only reimburses for bed-hold days to nursing facilities that have occupancy rates of 90 percent or greater. This policy change is addressed in 405 IAC 5-31-8. To determine eligibility for IHCP payment for bed-hold days, each nursing facility must determine the occupancy rate as of the date that an IHCP resident leaves the facility for hospital or therapeutic leave. If the facility’s occupancy rate is equal to or greater than 90 percent as of the date the IHCP resident leaves the facility for hospital or therapeutic leave, the facility is permitted to receive IHCP reimbursement for the bed-hold days for the duration of that resident’s leave of absence, subject to the limitations prescribed by 405 IAC 5-31-8. If the facility’s occupancy rate is less than 90 percent, the facility is not permitted to receive IHCP reimbursement for any bed-hold days for the duration of that resident’s leave of absence. The facility must code for leave days using the revenue codes as indicated in Table 8.18. For internal recordkeeping purposes, facilities must continue to submit claims for bed-hold days regardless of whether those leave days are eligible for IHCP payment. Bed-hold days not eligible for payment must be billed using revenue code 180. The bed-hold days appear on the explanation of benefits (EOB) as a payment denial but still allow the OMPP to track unpaid leave days. Bill bed-hold days eligible for IHCP payment pursuant to 405 IAC 5-31-8 using either revenue code 183 or 185, as applicable. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-93 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Code any leave day, whether eligible for payment or not, on the claim using one of the codes listed in Table 8.18. Table 8.18 – Bed-Hold Revenue Codes Revenue Code Description 180 Bed-hold days not eligible for payment 183 Therapeutic bed-hold days eligible for payment 185 Hospital bed-hold days eligible for payment The types of reimbursed leave days are as follows: • Hospitalization – Must be ordered by the physician for treatment of an acute condition that cannot be treated in the NF. The total length of time allowed for payment of a reserved bed for a single hospital stay is 15 consecutive days. Providers must use revenue code 185 to denote a leave of absence for hospitalization. The IHCP reimburses leave days at one-half the case mix room and board rate. To determine the leave day rate, divide the case mix per diem rate in half. • Therapeutic Leave of Absence – Must be for therapeutic reasons, as prescribed by the attending physician and as indicated in the member’s plan of care. The maximum total length of time allotted for therapeutic leave in a calendar year is 30 days for any NF resident. Providers must use revenue code 183 to denote a therapeutic leave of absence. Autoclosure Billing To ensure that IHCP members receive all benefits to which they are entitled, it is the responsibility of each LTC provider to properly document the discharge of residents in a timely manner. Since January 1998, IndianaAIM has used the patient status code from the UB-04 claim form (locator box 22, STAT) to close the member’s Level of Care (LOC) segment. This eliminates the need for submitting written discharge information to the OMPP. If the LOC is not updated, it prevents members from receiving services, such as supplies and pharmacy prescription fulfillment, upon discharge from LTC facilities. Providers should be aware that overpayments to facilities are subject to recoupment. The following discharge status codes are the only valid codes for members who are discharged from LTC facilities: • 01 – Discharged to home or self-care, routine discharge • 02 – Discharged or transferred to another short-term general hospital for inpatient care • 05 – Discharged or transferred to a designated cancer center or children’s hospital • 07 – Left against medical advice or discontinued care • 08 – Discharged or transferred to home under care of a home intravenous provider • 20 – Expired LTC providers do not receive reimbursement for the date of discharge. Therefore, it is imperative that LTC providers carefully complete the UB-04 claim form to ensure that the “Through Date of Service” (TDOS) in field locator 6 on the claim form accurately reflects the actual date of discharge for the member. 8-94 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Medicare Crossover Payment Policy The IHCP makes a payment only when the Medicare payment amount is less than the IHCP rate on file at the time HP processes the crossover claim. This change in payment policy for Medicare crossover claims is addressed in 405 IAC 1-18-2. A paid claim can have an amount of $0. See Chapter 14 of this manual for more information. When a nursing facility resident elects Medicare benefits for room and board at the beginning of the month, the nursing facility collects liability at the beginning of the month, as if the resident was not using Medicare days. If the resident uses Medicare room and board benefits for the entire month, the nursing facility places the liability collected at the beginning of the month in the resident’s personal needs allowance account. If the resident uses Medicare benefits for room and board for several months, this may put the resident over personal resources. In this case, the nursing facility must notify the county caseworker, who will redetermine the financial eligibility of the resident and may end-date the resident’s IHCP eligibility until personal resources are again exhausted. The resident may then reapply for Medicaid and must complete a new Form 450B. If the resident uses only a portion of the month for Medicare room and board benefits, the liability collected by the nursing facility is only for the days that Medicaid paid the nursing facility room and board. The nursing facility places the remaining liability in the resident’s personal needs allowance account. If the dollar amount in the personal needs account exceeds the limit allowed, the nursing facility must notify the county caseworker. Nursing Facilities Not Medicare-Certified IHCP-enrolled nursing facilities that are not Medicare-certified must comply with the following: • The nursing facility must use the Certification Statement available on the Web at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com to certify to the OMPP that it will not request payment from the IHCP for services rendered to dually eligible IHCP members who are eligible to receive Medicare Part A nursing facility benefits. For as long as a nursing facility elects not to become Medicare-certified, the NF must submit this certification annually to the OMPP’s rate-setting contractor, Myers and Stauffer, LC. NFs must send the Certification Statement with the facility’s regularly scheduled cost report submission. • The nursing facility must maintain clinical, payment, and benefit records in sufficient detail to substantiate to the OMPP that a member for whom IHCP payment was requested is not also entitled to or eligible for Medicare Part A nursing facility benefits. The facility must contact the Medicare fiscal intermediary to determine the availability of Medicare. Intermediate Care Facility for the Mentally Retarded Services Intermediate care facilities for the mentally retarded (ICFs/MR) are divided into three distinct categories: • Small ICF/MR – Four to eight beds and are commonly referred to as community residential facilities for the developmentally disabled (CRF/DD) - Basic developmental - Child rearing - Child-rearing residences with specialized programs - Developmental training - Intensive training - Sheltered living - Small behavioral management residences for children - Small extensive needs medical residences for adults Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-95 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions • Large, private ICF/MR – More than eight beds • State-operated facilities – More than eight beds Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual ICFs/MR bill for room and board charges using the applicable room and board revenue code. Acceptable room and board revenue codes include 100, 110, 120, and 130. The ICF/MR reimbursement rate is an inclusive rate. Therefore, ICFs/MR cannot bill separately for medical and nonmedical supply items, personal care items, or therapies. The small ICF/MR reimbursement rate also includes day services as part of the inclusive rate. However, ICFs/MR can bill separately when billing crossover claims. Any inappropriate billing or reimbursement is subject to recoupment by the SUR Department. Type of Bill Providers must use type of bill 66X in form field 4 of the UB-04 claim form to denote a large or Stateowned ICF/MR. Type of bill 67X denotes a group home or small ICF/MR. Leave Days Reimbursement is available for reserving beds for members in a private or State-operated ICF/MR, provided that the criteria set out in 405 IAC 5-13-6 is met. Providers must use the appropriate room and board revenue code for the days the member was a patient in the ICF/MR and use the applicable leave of absence revenue code for the days the member was out of the ICF/MR. The two types of reimbursed leave days are as follows: 8-96 • Hospitalization – Must be ordered by the physician for treatment of an acute condition that cannot be treated in the facility. The total time allowed for payment of a reserved bed for a single hospital stay is 15 consecutive days. If the member requires hospitalization longer than 15 consecutive days, then the member must be discharged from the ICF/MR. If the member is discharged from the ICF/MR following a hospitalization in excess of 15 consecutive days, then the ICF/MR is still responsible for appropriate discharge planning. Discharge planning is required if the ICF/MR does not intend to provide ongoing services following the hospitalization for those members who continue to require ICF/MR Level of Care services. The facility must maintain a physician’s order for hospitalization in the member’s file at the facility. Providers must use revenue code 185 to denote a leave of absence for hospitalization. • Therapeutic Leave of Absence – Must be for therapeutic reasons, as prescribed by the attending physician and as indicated in the member’s habilitation plan. The maximum total length of time allotted for therapeutic leaves in any calendar year is 60 days per member residing in an ICF/MR. The leave days need not be consecutive. If the member is absent for more than 60 days per year, then no further reimbursement is available to reserve a bed for that member in that year. The facility must maintain a physician’s order for the therapeutic leave in the member’s file at the facility. Providers must use revenue code 183 to denote a therapeutic leave of absence. • Use Revenue code 180 when the hold days are not eligible for payment. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Outpatient Services Coverage Outpatient services are services provided to members who are not registered as inpatients in an acute care or psychiatric hospital. Outpatient services include surgery, therapy, laboratory, radiology, chemotherapy, renal dialysis, clinic, treatment room, and emergency department care. The IHCP covers outpatient services when such services are provided or prescribed by a physician and when the services are medically necessary for the diagnosis or treatment of the member’s condition. The member’s medical condition, as described and documented in the medical record by the primary or attending physician, must justify the intensity of service provided. The four categories of service within the defined outpatient hospital prospective payment system are as follows: • Outpatient surgeries • Treatment room visits • Stand-alone services • Add-on services Medicare and Medicaid The IHCP developed the coverage policies, reimbursement policies, and billing requirements of the Outpatient Prospective Payment System. The IHCP does not intend for these policies and requirements to mirror the policies and procedures of the Medicare program. Billing Procedures Mail outpatient claims to the following address for processing: HP Outpatient Claims P.O. Box 7271 Indianapolis, IN 46207-7271 Note: RBMC members must bill the appropriate MCO. The following clarifications may assist providers using the UB-04 claim form. Detailed information about reimbursement for outpatient services is in Chapter 7 of this manual. Package B Billing Services for Hoosier Healthwise Package B must comply with the following restrictions: • The IHCP does not reimburse for any services other than pregnancy-related services. • The IHCP pays for drugs prescribed for indications directly related to the pregnancy in accordance with IAC restrictions. In addition to drug coverage, transportation, family planning, routine prenatal care, delivery, and postpartum care, the IHCP reimburses providers for a condition that may complicate the pregnancy. In other words, the IHCP covers a service provided to a pregnant woman for the treatment of a chronic or Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-97 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual abnormal disorder, as identified by ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes 649.00 – 649.04, 649.10 – 649.14, 649.20 – 649.21, 649.23 – 649.24, 649.30 – 649.34, 649.40 – 649.44, 649.50 – 649.51, 649.53, 649.60 – 649.64, 649.70 – 649.71, and 649.73, as well as urgent care. The IHCP defines a condition that may complicate the pregnancy as any condition manifesting itself by symptoms of sufficient severity that the absence of medical attention could reasonably be expected to result in a deterioration of the patient’s condition or a need for a higher level of care. The IHCP does not dictate to physicians conditions that may or may not complicate a pregnancy. Therefore, if the physician determines that the illness or injury could complicate the pregnancy or have an adverse effect on the outcome of the pregnancy, the IHCP covers the care provided for that illness or injury. Providers should list a pregnancy diagnosis code as the primary diagnosis code and identify the illness or injury being treated as the secondary diagnosis code if the condition is considered a risk of complication of the pregnancy. When billing for emergency services, providers must appropriately code claims as emergency. The primary diagnosis code must be pregnancy-related, or IHCP denies the claim. Providers must indicate the pregnancy-related diagnosis code in primary diagnosis field 67 on the UB-04 claim form. If the pregnancy diagnosis does not adequately address the specific reason for the visit or care, providers must also include the visit or care diagnosis as a secondary or tertiary diagnosis on the claim form. If a Package B member receives a sterilization procedure following delivery, the primary diagnosis code must be pregnancy with voluntary sterilization as a secondary diagnosis. The member must complete consent forms, and the provider must send them with the claim. See Informed Consent Claim Attachment Instructions section. Notification of Pregnancy Billing Effective December 1, 2009, hospitals can submit claims for Notification of Pregnancy (NOP). Submit claims for NOP using the UB-04 claim form to the appropriate managed care organization following the guidelines below for reimbursement. To be eligible for reimbursement of an NOP: 1. The NOP must be submitted via Web interChange no more than five calendar days from the date the risk assessment was completed. The NOP cannot be a duplicate of a previously submitted NOP, and the member’s gestation must be 29 weeks or less. 2. NOP claim forms from hospitals must be coded with the following: - Revenue Code 960 - CPT® code 99354 and modifier TH Note: The revenue code, CPT code, and modifier must be billed together to be reimbursed the NOP fee when billed on the UB claim form. Duplicate NOPs will not be reimbursed. For more information on submitting a NOP through Web interChange, see the Process for Completion of the Notification of Pregnancy section. 8-98 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Outpatient Surgeries The IHCP reimburses an all-inclusive flat fee that includes all related procedures for outpatient surgeries provided in either a hospital or an ambulatory surgical center (ASC) . The IHCP reimburses for outpatient surgeries provided in a number of settings including an operating room, treatment room, emergency department, or clinic. Surgical Revenue Codes Surgical revenue codes are generally defined as 36X and 49X. The revenue codes for treatment rooms, such as 45X, 51X, 52X, 70X, 71X, 72X, and 76X, are defined as surgical revenue codes when accompanied by a surgical CPT or HCPCS code. The IHCP then reimburses these revenue codes at the appropriate ASC rate. If the provider performs no surgical procedure, the provider must submit the revenue code without a CPT or HCPCS code. The IHCP then reimburses these services at the treatment room rate. Providers combine all charges and services associated with the surgical procedure as an all-inclusive charge on one line item. Component billing of any related services is not appropriate and is denied. Note: The IHCP does not allow add-on or stand-alone services with any surgical revenue codes. Reimbursement is based on the assignment of the CPT code to one of 16 ASC groups. Reimbursement rates have been established for each ASC group that is reflective of the average cost for procedures within the group. Please note that the assignment of CPT codes to ASC groups may not be the same as the assignment formally used by the Medicare program. Table 8.19 identifies the ASC groups. Table 8.19 – ASC Groups ASC Group Group 1 Group 2 Group 3 Group 4 Group 5 Group 6 Group 7 Group 8 A – Extensive B – Complicated C – Intermediate D – Simple E – Moderate F – Minimal G – Drug Eluting Stents T – Telemedicine Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-99 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual The IHCP reimburses a maximum of two units of service regardless of the number of incisions. The IHCP reimburses the procedure with the highest ASC rate at 100 percent of that rate, and it reimburses the procedure with the second highest ASC rate or bilateral procedure at 50 percent of the respective ASC rate. All other procedures are denied. To denote multiple surgeries, the provider must list the appropriate revenue code and CPT code as two separate detail line items on the claim form. Providers must bill outpatient surgeries provided in either a hospital or an ASC on a UB-04 claim form. Combine all charges and services associated with the surgical procedure as an all-inclusive charge on each line item. The appropriate CPT surgical procedure code (10000 through 69999) must accompany one of the revenue codes listed in Table 8.20: Table 8.20 – Revenue Codes Revenue Code Description 36X Operating room services 45X Emergency department 49X Ambulatory surgical care 51X Clinic 52X Freestanding clinic 70X Cast room 71X Recovery room 72X Labor/delivery room 76X Treatment/observation room Providers must include all outpatient services provided on the day of the surgery on a single claim. Include the charges for any other services provided on the day of the surgery with the charge for the surgery, as described above. Add-on or stand-alone services are not separately reimbursable. Implantable DME The cost of certain implantable durable medical equipment is separately reimbursable for outpatient claims. Some of these items require prior authorization (see Chapter 6 for more information about PA). Providers should submit claims for these items on the CMS-1500 claim form or 837P transaction. Submit only these items on the CMS-1500 claim form or 837P transaction. The IHCP permits only these items to have separate reimbursement. Table 8.21 lists the implantable durable medical equipment.

Corneal Tissue The cost associated with corneal tissue acquisition, HCPCS code V2785 – Processing, preserving, and transporting corneal tissue, is separately reimbursable from the ASC rate for outpatient corneal transplant procedures. Submit claims for this item on the CMS-1500 claim form or through the 837P transaction. Make sure to attach a copy of the invoice from the eye bank or organ procurement organization showing the actual cost of acquiring the tissue. Providers must follow current policy for submitting paper attachments with the 837P transaction. Effective December 15, 2006, HCPCS code V2785 is reimbursed 100 percent of the cost invoice. Pacemakers Effective December 15, 2006, when the implantation is performed in an outpatient surgical setting, IHCP reimburses the cost of single- and dual-chamber pacemakers identified in Table 8.21 in addition to the ASC rate. The facility purchasing the pacemaker must submit, as an attachment to the CMS1500 or 837P electronic transaction, a manufacturer’s cost invoice showing the purchase price for the pacemaker. The IHCP reimburses the provider at 100 percent of the cost invoice for this device. Phrenic Nerve Stimulator (Breathing Pacemaker) IHCP began covering the phrenic nerve stimulator (breathing pacemaker) effective for claims with dates of service of October 26, 2000. Specific coverage criteria have been developed and must be met for reimbursement to be made. This section provides coverage and billing information to allow providers to submit claims for this device. This device is an electrophrenic pacemaker for pacing the diaphragm. The device consists of an external radio frequency transmitter, an antenna, a subcutaneous radio receiver, and a bipolar platinum nerve electrode. Diaphragmatic pacing (intermittent electrical stimulation of the phrenic nerves) offers freedom from mechanical ventilation for patients who need long-term ventilation, and have a functionally intact phrenic nerve and chest-wall stability. Prior Authorization Prior authorization (PA) is required for this device and its implantation, whether the device is implanted on an inpatient or an outpatient basis. One or more of the following ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes must be used when submitting requests for PA. Members with these diagnoses who are Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-101 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual ventilator dependent and have a tracheostomy due to partial or complete respiratory insufficiency are considered candidates for this device, subject to review. • 344.0-344.9 includes quadriplegia and quadraparesis of all types • 780.51 and 780.53—nonobstructive sleep apnea • 786.09—congenital respiratory abnormalities, other Coding and Billing Instructions For inpatient billing of the implantation of the device, the appropriate DRG will be used. The claim for the device must be submitted as a durable medical equipment (DME) item on a CMS-1500 claim form. When the device is implanted as an outpatient procedure, the revenue code 360 with CPT code 33282 should be used on the UB-04 claim form and the device billed as a DME item on a CMS-1500 claim form. The decision for either outpatient or inpatient status is made by the physician and determined by the assessment of complicating factors and their severity at the time the procedure is planned. The hospital providing the equipment for implantation must be enrolled as a DME provider with a DME Legacy Provider Identifier (LPI). Table 8.22 provides the CPT codes and description information to use when submitting claims either as an inpatient or outpatient.

Members who qualify for this device will demonstrate life-threatening oxygen depletion when respiration is unassisted. 2. For stable, nonacute quadriplegics and other members with spinal-cord or brain-stem injuries [ICD9-CM 344(00-09) diagnosis codes], all the following criteria must be met: – Patient is oriented to name, date, and place. – Patient’s mobility will be improved. Patient will be able to be out of bed and be mobile per wheelchair, which may include employment or attending school. Increased mobility will allow the patient to function without interference of large equipment. – Patient’s skin integrity will be better maintained because of increased mobility. – Patient has capacity to be productive. He or she will more easily perform cognitive tasks within physical limitations. – Patient will be better able to eat and swallow. 3. For nonobstructive (or central) sleep apnea (ICD-9-CM 780.51, 780.53 diagnosis codes) only when other treatments have failed. The following criteria must be met: – The requesting physician will present sleep studies demonstrating life-threatening respiratory cycles when the patient is asleep. – The member must have a diagnosis of central sleep apnea and have failed to maintain an appropriate PO2 level (oxygen partial pressure) with continuous positive air pressure (CPAP) and bilevel continuous positive airway pressure (BiPAP) treatments. – Documentation by a specialist in otolaryngology or pulmonology of treatment attempts will accompany the prior authorization request. – The breathing pacemaker should never be recommended for treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. 4. Documentation indicating medical necessity for the appropriate diagnosis will be submitted prior to surgical implantation of the stimulator wires. Device Monitoring Medical device tracking regulations of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration require that the manufacturer of the device be notified when the following occurs: • Diaphragm pacing system is implanted • Diaphragm pacing receiver or electrode is explanted (date, name, mailing address, and telephone number of the explanting physician are to be included) • Diaphragm pacing patient dies • Diaphragm pacing device is returned • Diaphragm pacing device is permanently retired from use or otherwise permanently discarded Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-103 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Patient-Activated Event Recorder – Implantable Loop Recorder The IHCP reimburses for the insertion and programming of the patient-activated event recorder – implantable loop recorder (ILR).This change is effective for claims with service dates of October 26, 2000, or after. Claims should be billed with the ICD-9 diagnosis code that supports medical necessity, 780.2 – Syncope and collapse. This section provides details about coverage and billing of the patientactivated event recorder – ILR, also referred to as the implantable loop recorder. Coverage IHCP covers the patient-activated event recorder – ILR for use after a syncopal event. The device may be implanted at any of three places of service including inpatient, outpatient, or physician’s office. The device may not be implanted in the same member more often than every two years or 24 months. The recorder activator is furnished with the system and is not separately reimbursed. Prior Authorization Neither the implantation of the device nor the patient-activated event recorder – ILR require prior authorization (PA), but will be subject to retrospective review according to IHCP criteria. If a replacement recorder activator is needed, PA is required. Reimbursement and Billing Instructions The procedure code for the implantation of the patient-activated event recorder – ILR is CPT code 33282. The code for the removal of this device is 33284. These procedure codes have a 90-day global postoperative care designation for which care related to the surgical procedure is not separately reimbursable unless such care is nonroutine, such as treatment of complications. If the procedure is performed when the patient is an inpatient for a related problem, submit a UB-04 using the ICD-9-CM code 780.2 – Syncope and collapse as one of the diagnosis codes on the claim form. If the procedure is performed as an outpatient, submit a UB-04 using revenue code 360 and the CPT code 33282 for implantation. The device itself should be billed on a CMS-1500 using code E0616, and 780.2 – Syncope and collapse as the primary diagnosis code. Use CPT code 33284 with revenue code 360 to bill for removal of the device. Physician’s charges for the surgery should be billed on a CMS-1500. If the procedure is performed in a physician’s office, the physician should bill CPT code 33282 for implantation and E0616 for the device. Both codes are billed on the CMS-1500.

The patient-activated event recorder – ILR is not covered for the following: – Patients with presyncopal episodes – Patients failing to fulfill the indications for coverage in this policy – Patients for whom compliance or lifestyle make use of the external monitoring systems inappropriate • Removal of a patient-activated event recorder – ILR on the same day as the insertion of a cardiac pacemaker is considered part of the pacemaker insertion procedure and is not reimbursed separately. • Only one patient-activated event recorder – ILR is covered for a given patient in any two-year time period. • ECG analyses obtained during device insertion for signal quality and amplification purposes are considered part of the implant procedure and are not reimbursed separately. Intraocular Lenses New Technology Intraocular lenses (NTIOL) are intraocular lenses (IOLs) that the CMS has identified as being superior to other IOLs of the same category because of a demonstrated decrease in postoperative complications. Providers should use the appropriate HCPCS V-code. Any facility reimbursed at an ASC rate should submit claims for surgical insertions of IOLs using the Physician’s CPT code 66983, 66984, 66985, or 66986 and the appropriate revenue code on a UB-04 claim form. The NTIOL claim must be submitted on a separate CMS-1500 claim form using the facility’s durable medical equipment (DME) NPI. NeuroCybernetic Prosthesis System – Vagus Nerve Stimulator Effective October 23, 2000, the IHCP will reimburse for the NeuroCybernetic Prosthesis (NCP) System, a vagus nerve stimulator. This system works as a pacemaker for the brain. The NCP System is indicated for use as an adjunctive therapy in reducing the frequency of seizures in adults and adolescents older than 12 years old with partial-onset seizures that are refractory to anti-epileptic medications, and for which surgery has failed or is not recommended. 8-106 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Coverage Criteria for the NCP System The IHCP has approved the following criteria: • Coverage of the NCP System is effective for dates of service on or after October 23, 2000. Reimbursement for implantation, revision, programming and reprogramming, and removal of the vagus nerve stimulator device is available under the IHCP for members older than 12 years old with medically intractable partial-onset seizures. These members are not otherwise surgical candidates. Providers are required to perform this procedure on an outpatient basis whenever medically possible. Implantation procedures and equipment will require prior authorization with documentation of medical necessity. In situations where complicating factors require this procedure to be performed on an inpatient basis, medical history and records should support the need for the inpatient admission. Prior authorization will not be required by the hospital for the inpatient admission or the device (included in the DRG reimbursement). The device cannot be billed separately for inpatients. Prior authorization must be obtained by the physician for the implantation procedures regardless of setting. The prior authorization request must be submitted with the following information: • Documentation that an evaluation has been made by a neurologist • Documentation of the member’s type of epilepsy • Documentation that the member’s seizures are medically intractable (member continues with an unacceptable number of seizures with adequate treatment with two or more anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs) for a period of at least 12 months) • Documentation that the member is not an intracranial surgical candidate or that surgery has been unsuccessful (for example, the member is not a surgical candidate due to multiple epileptic foci) Members with diagnoses of ominous prognosis or other limiting factors would not be considered appropriate candidates for the implantation of the vagus nerve stimulator (for example, members with an absent left vagus nerve, severe mental retardation, cerebral palsy, stroke, progressive fatal neurologic disease, or progressive fatal medical disease). Diagnosis and Procedure Codes The following diagnosis and procedure codes are to be used when billing for the implantation, revision, programming and reprogramming, and removal of the vagus nerve stimulator device.

Therefore, 64573 and 61885 or 64553 and 61885 CPT codes should be used. Reimbursement is based on 100 percent of the highest ASC group and 50 percent for the second highest ASC group (no additional reimbursement is available for three or more procedures). Additional reimbursement, separate from the ASC rate for the implantation procedure performed in an outpatient setting, will be allowed for the cost of the device. Providers are to bill their usual and customary charge for this device and will be reimbursed the lesser of the submitted charges for the device or the maximum fee amount. The device must be billed on a CMS-1500 claim form using a DME provider number, and prior authorization must be obtained. Note: Providers may not separately bill for individual components when implanting the complete system. If a provider does not have a DME provider number, the provider can obtain an application on the Indiana Medicaid Web site at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com in the provider enrollment section. Additional information can be found in Chapter 4 of the manual. Hospital Inpatient In situations where a complicating factor is present and the patient requires admission to the hospital for the procedure, the procedure and equipment will be reimbursed according to the appropriate DRG payment. Prior authorization is not required for the admission or the device, which is included in the DRG reimbursement. The physician for the surgical procedure must obtain prior authorization. The hospital stay must be billed on the UB-04 claim form and must include a secondary diagnosis indicating a complicating factor that necessitated inpatient admission. Hospitals cannot receive additional reimbursement outside the DRG payment for the cost of the device. DRG payments for inpatient procedures with complicating factors include reimbursement for the device. Physician Billing Instructions Physicians will bill professional services on the CMS-1500 claim form, using the appropriate procedure codes in the following tables.

No Treatment Room Visits For purposes of the IHCP’s outpatient prospective payment system, treatment rooms include emergency department, clinic, cast room, labor and delivery room, recovery room, and observation room. 8-110 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions The IHCP reimburses emergency department services for the treatment of ill and injured persons that require immediate unscheduled medical or surgical care. The IHCP reimburses clinic services for diagnostic, preventative, curative, and rehabilitative services provided to ambulatory patients. Reimbursable observation services are furnished by a hospital on the hospital’s premises, including the use of a bed and periodic monitoring by a hospital’s nursing staff, and are reasonable and necessary to evaluate the patient’s condition or determine the need for possible admission to the hospital as an inpatient. When surgeries are performed in a treatment room, the appropriate CPT code should accompany the revenue code, and reimbursement is based on the ASC methodology. Facilities should otherwise not use a surgical CPT code in addition to the treatment room revenue code. Treatment room services are reimbursed at a flat rate that includes most drugs and supplies. Reimbursement is limited to one unit per day, per patient, per provider. Services must be billed on the UB-04 claim form using the appropriate revenue code. The treatment room revenue codes are listed in Table 8.32. Table 8.32 – Treatment Room Services Revenue Code Description 45X Emergency department 51X Clinic 52X Freestanding clinic 70X Cast room 72X Labor/delivery room 76X Treatment/observation room Providers may bill stand-alone services in conjunction with treatment room services. Stand-alone services include therapies, dialysis, radiology, and laboratory services. The IHCP allows certain add-on services, described below, if they are billed in conjunction with a treatment room. These are 255 (Drugs Incident to Radiology), 258 (IV Solutions), 29X (DME), 370 (Anesthesia), 38X (Blood), 39X (Blood Storage and Processing), and 62X (Diagnostic Supplies). All other add-on services are denied if billed in conjunction with a treatment room service. Emergency Services Facility payment for services rendered in the emergency department is the same statewide flat rate for an emergency diagnosis and for a nonemergency diagnosis. While authorization is not required for emergencies, the IHCP may not cover nonauthorized services rendered to a Care Select member without an emergency diagnosis. The IHCP may suspend these claims for review to determine whether the provider met the prudent layperson standard for an emergency medical condition. If the review determines that the provider did not meet the prudent layperson standard, the claim is denied. If the provider did meet the prudent layperson standard, the IHCP pays only revenue code 45X, as long as the primary medical provider (PMP) NPI is indicated in field 78 of the UB-04 claim form. The IHCP reimburses revenue codes 70X, 71X, 72X, and 76X at a flat rate regardless of the diagnosis code on the claim.

Certain addon services are also separately reimbursable if billed in conjunction with a treatment room. These are 255 (Drugs Incident to Radiology), 258 (IV Solutions), 29X (DME), 370 (Anesthesia), 38X (Blood), 39X (Blood Storage and Processing), and 62X (Diagnostic Supplies). All other add-on services are denied if billed in conjunction with a treatment room service. Add-on services are not separately reimbursable if provided on the same day as an outpatient surgery. Stand-alone Services Stand-alone services include therapies, diagnostic testing, dialysis, laboratory, and radiology procedures performed in an outpatient setting. Providers can bill stand-alone services separately or in conjunction with treatment room services. Stand-alone services are not separately reimbursable with outpatient surgeries if provided on the same day as the surgery. The IHCP reimburses stand-alone services at an established flat statewide rate and reimburses laboratory and radiology services at the lower of the submitted charge or the fee schedule amount. The IHCP allows a maximum of one unit of service, per revenue code, for each date of service, except for lab and radiology. Providers must bill services on the UB-04 claim form. Table 8.35 lists the revenue codes for stand-alone services.

Laboratories performing the services must bill the IHCP directly unless otherwise approved. Providers may submit only one claim when providing multiple laboratory services. Hospitals must bill laboratory services using the most appropriate HCPCS code. Revenue codes billed without the appropriate HCPCS procedure code are denied. Providers must bill the professional component of a laboratory service performed in an outpatient hospital setting on the CMS-1500 claim form or an 837P transaction with the appropriate HCPCS code and 26 modifier. Refer to the CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions section of this chapter for specific CMS-1500 billing instructions. Stand-alone Radiology Services A physician, or other practitioner authorized to do so under state law, must order radiology services in writing. Facilities must bill the IHCP directly. Hospitals billing under the provider type of “01” should bill only the technical component (TC) for radiology services provided in an outpatient hospital setting on the UB-04 claim form. No TC modifier is necessary for provider type 01. Providers must bill radiology revenue codes in conjunction with the appropriate HCPCS procedure code. Revenue codes billed without the appropriate HCPCS procedure code are denied. For radiology procedures, do not fragment and bill them separately. Providers must bill the professional component of a radiology service performed in an outpatient hospital setting with the appropriate HCPCS code and 26 modifier on the CMS-1500 claim form or 837P transaction. Freestanding radiology facilities must bill the technical and/or professional components of a radiology service on the CMS-1500 claim form or 837P transaction with the appropriate HCPCS code. If the freestanding radiology facility performed both components of the service, a modifier is not necessary. If the radiology facility performed only one component, the applicable 26 or TC modifier is necessary. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-131 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual The CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions section of this chapter provides specific CMS-1500 billing instructions. Stand-alone Chemotherapy and Radiation Services Bill all outpatient hospital chemotherapy and radiation treatment services on the UB-04 claim form or 837I transaction. Chemotherapy services consist of four components: • Administration of chemotherapy agent • Chemotherapy agent • Intravenous (IV) solution and equipment • Treatment room services Each of the four components is separately reimbursable when chemotherapy is administered, using the following code combinations: • Administration of chemotherapy agent – Bill using revenue codes 331, 332, or 335. The appropriate CPT chemotherapy codes are 96401 through 96549. • Chemotherapy agent – Bill using revenue code 636 – Drugs requiring detailed coding, along with the appropriate HCPCS code. • IV solution and equipment – Bill using revenue code 258 for the IV solution and revenue code 261 for IV equipment. • Treatment room services – Bill using revenue codes 45X, 483, 51X, 52X, or 76X. Radiation Treatment Services consist of two components: • Administration of radiation treatment • Treatment room services Both components are separately reimbursable, using the following code combinations: • Administration of radiation treatment – Bill using revenue codes 330, 333, or 339, along with the appropriate CPT radiation treatment code, 77261 through 77799. • Treatment room services – Bill using revenue codes 45X, 483, 51X, 52X, or 76X. Note: When chemotherapy and radiation treatment services are rendered on the same day, bill all applicable components to the IHCP. Stand-alone Renal Dialysis Services This section addresses billing requirements for hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis services rendered in a hospital outpatient setting in independent renal dialysis facilities called end-stage renal disease (ESRD) dialysis facilities; or in a patient’s home. 8-132 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Composite Rate for Method I Dialysis Patients who have ESRD, a chronic condition with kidney impairment considered irreversible and permanent, require a regular course of dialysis or a kidney transplant to maintain life. The IHCP reimburses for routine dialysis. The cost of dialysis treatments includes overhead costs, personnel services, administrative services (includes nursing staff members, social worker, and dietician), equipment and supplies, ESRD-related laboratory tests, certain injectable drugs, and biologicals. The composite rate for dialysis is the charge for the actual treatment or dialysis session. Routine laboratory charges are included in the fee for hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis and, as such, are not billed separately. However, the IHCP covers nonroutine lab services when billed separately if medical justification is indicated. The composite rate also includes all durable and disposable items and medical supplies necessary for the effective performance of a patient’s dialysis. Supplies include, but are not limited to, the following: • Forceps • Syringes • Alcohol wipes • Needles • Topical anesthetics • Rubber gloves • Dialysate heaters • Dialysate • Connecting tubes The composite rate covers certain parenteral items used in the dialysis procedure; therefore, these items cannot be billed separately. The following drugs are included under the composite rate: • Heparin • Protamine • Mannitol • Saline • Pressor drugs • Glucose • Dextrose • Antihistamines • Antiarrhythmics • Antihypertensives Billing Guidelines The following billing guidelines are for hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis and are used in the following settings: • Hospital outpatient • Independent renal dialysis facilities (ESRD dialysis facilities) • Patient’s home (some are Method II) Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-133 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Providers of dialysis services must use the UB-04 claim form to submit claims to the IHCP. The IHCP allows providers to bill for the drugs associated with renal dialysis services on the CMS-1500 claim form. Providers must bill all services provided by the ESRD facility on the UB-04 claim form. For IHCP-only claims, providers must bill each date-specific service separately on the UB-04 claim form. For example, if the patient receives 15 dialysis treatments in the month, enter 15 detail lines of revenue code 821 on the UB-04 claim form with the specific service date in field 45. This is true for all other services provided during the month. UB-04 Completion Guidelines The UB-04 claim form has 22 lines; therefore, providers cannot bill an entire month on one page. Providers can prepare a continuation claim, which is a claim with more than one UB-04 claim form completed, as if it is one claim to be processed for payment by the IHCP. Continuation claims cannot be more than three pages. Providers must complete the continuation claim as follows: 1. Complete the first 22 lines on page one of the UB-04 claim form. 2. Mark the UB-04 claim form page numbers in the area provided on line 23. 3. Do not subtotal the first page of the claim. Total only the last page of the continuation claim, or IndianaAIM reads the claim as two claims rather than one. 4. Complete the subsequent UB-04 claim forms for the remaining dates of service of the month, numbering each page in the area provided on line 23. 5. Provide a grand total for the continuation claim on the last page of the UB-04 claim form in the space provided at the bottom of field 47. Providers that prefer not to complete a continuation claim can complete separate UB-04 claim forms. Type of Bill Codes Providers must use the following Type of Bill codes when submitting claims for renal dialysis: • Freestanding renal dialysis facilities (ESRDs) should use Type of Bill code 721. • Outpatient hospital renal dialysis facilities should use Type of Bill code 131. • Inpatient renal dialysis services should be billed with Type of Bill code 111. Diagnosis Codes • 584 – Acute renal failure • 585.x – Chronic renal failure • 586 – Renal failure unspecified Revenue Codes • 8-134 Dialysis Sessions – Hemodialysis sessions are reimbursable at an established flat statewide rate. These services represent the number of hemodialysis sessions. “Outpatient or home” and “units of service” reflect the number of actual sessions rendered (one per day). Use Revenue Codes 82X, 83X, 84X, and 85X. - Revenue category 82X: 821 – hemodialysis/composite or other rate. This revenue code represents the number of hemodialysis sessions, outpatient or home, rendered per day. Providers should indicate a “1” in field 46, Service Units, on the UB-04 claim form. The IHCP Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual - - - Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions allows only one unit per date of service. For ESRD providers, Revenue Code category 82X cannot be billed on the same claim with 83X, 84X, and 85X. Revenue category 83X: 831 – peritoneal dialysis/composite or other rate. This revenue code represents the number of peritoneal dialysis sessions performed in the outpatient or home setting. Providers should indicate a “1” in field 46, Service Units, on the UB-04 claim form. The IHCP allows only one unit per date of service. Revenue category 84X: 841 – CAPD/composite or other rate. This revenue code represents the charges for continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis, using the patient’s peritoneal membrane as a dialyzer, which is performed in the home or outpatient setting. Providers should indicate a “1” in field 46, Service Units on the UB-04 claim form. The IHCP allows only one unit per date of service. For ESRD providers, Revenue Code category 82X cannot be billed on the same claim with 83X, 84X, and 85X. Revenue category 85X: 851 – CCPD/composite or other rate. This revenue code represents the charges for continuous cycling peritoneal dialysis performed in an outpatient or home setting. Providers should indicate a “1” in field 46, Service Units on the UB-04 claim form. The IHCP allows only one unit per date of service. Note: Providers can submit claims for revenue codes 820, 821, 830, 831, 840, 841, 849, 850, 851, and 881with more than one unit of service on a detail line. When multiple units span multiple days, providers must indicate the date range in the Statement Covers Period field. If providers do not include the date range in this field, the claim may be denied. • Administration of Epoetin – Providers must use the following revenue codes with the appropriate HCPCS J code when billing for the administration of Epoetin in a hospital outpatient or ESRD setting. The IHCP currently allows payment for HCPCS codes J0885 or J0886 for patients with a hematocrit range of less than 20 to 40 and above. - 634 Epoetin, less than 10,000 units - 635 Epoetin, 10,000 or more units • Drugs Requiring Detailed Coding – Revenue Code 636 is used with the appropriate HCPCS code to report charges for drugs and biological products requiring specific identification. Submit Revenue Code 636 in field 42 on the UB-04 claim form. Providers must submit the appropriate HCPCS code, including J codes, identifying the specific drug injected, in field 44. In field 46 on the UB-04 claim form, submit the number of units administered. • Laboratory Services – The composite rate for hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis includes routine laboratory charges; therefore, providers cannot bill separately for them. However, the IHCP covers nonroutine lab services when billed separately, if medical justification is indicated. Use Revenue Code category 30X with the appropriate HCPCS code. Laboratory tests included in the composite rate and their anticipated frequency include the following: - Per Treatment – All hematocrit, hemoglobin, and clotting times furnished incident to dialysis treatments - Weekly – Prothrombin time for patients on anticoagulant therapy, serum creatinine, and blood urea nitrogen (BUN) - Monthly – Serum calcium, serum bicarbonate, alkaline phosphatase, serum potassium, serum phosphorous, aspartate aminotransferase (AST, formerly SGOT), serum chloride, total protein, lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), complete blood count (CBC), and serum albumin - Nonroutine lab services – The IHCP covers nonroutine lab services when billed separately, if medical justification is indicated. Use revenue code category 30X with the appropriate HCPCS code. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-135 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Note: The facility performing the dialysis treatment must bill all laboratory services performed. An independent lab cannot bill labs for dialysis patients separately. These independent labs should be contracted with the dialysis facility to perform the actual tests and cannot bill the IHCP separately for their services. • Supplies – The composite rate includes all durable and disposable items and medical supplies necessary for the effective performance of a patient’s dialysis. However, providers can use revenue code 270 to bill supplies outside the list of those included in the composite rate. Supplies are not paid if billed in conjunction with treatment room revenue codes. Supply revenue codes are denied if billed without an HCPCS surgical procedure code or if billed in conjunction with treatment room revenue codes 45X, 51X, 52X, 70X, 71X, 72X, and 76X, also billed without an HCPCS surgical procedure code. Providers can bill revenue code 270 with multiple units only when the member has any of the following renal diagnoses – 584.x, 585.x, or 586 – and when the service is directly related to the dialysis service. This is subject to postpayment review and recoupment. Transportation Services Providers may not bill transportation services on the UB-04 claim form. Providers must obtain a separate provider number to bill transportation services. These services must be billed on the CMS1500 claim form or 837P transaction. To enroll as a transportation provider, providers can access http://provider.indianamedicaid.com/become-a-provider/enroll-as-a-provider.aspx to enroll online or download a Provider Enrollment Application. Providers can also contact HP Provider Enrollment at 1877-707-5750. Chapter 4 of this manual provides specific enrollment information and criteria. Specific billing information for transportation services is provided in the Transportation Services section in this chapter. Outpatient Mental Health As required by the House Enrolled Act (HEA) 1396, the Covered Services Rule, 405 IAC 5-20, and 405 IAC 5-21, providers cannot use revenue codes 500, 510, 90X, 91X, and 96X to bill covered outpatient mental health hospital services. Hospitals can bill for the facility use associated with these services by billing the appropriate clinic or treatment room revenue code. Providers must bill all professional services associated with outpatient mental health services on the CMS-1500 claim form or 837P transaction. Up to and including date of service December 31, 2006, outpatient mental health services, including substance abuse and chemical dependency services rendered in freestanding psychiatric hospitals, are carved out of the RBMC delivery system and paid on an FFS basis. The carved-out definition in the Carved-Out Services subsection of this chapter provides further information. Bill claims for mental health services in a freestanding psychiatric hospital on a UB-04 claim form or 837I transaction. These claims are not the financial responsibility of the MCOs. Outpatient mental health services, including substance abuse treatment, provided to members in an RBMC delivery system in acute care facilities are the MCO’s financial responsibility. On and after January 1, 2007, these services will no longer be carved out, excluding services for PRTF and MRO services. 8-136 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Partial Units of Service Providers must round partial units of service to the nearest whole unit when calculating reimbursement. For example, if a unit of service equals 15 minutes, a minimum of eight minutes must be provided to bill for one unit. Filing UB-04 Crossover Claims Processing of Crossover Claims This section provides clarification of the billing procedures providers must follow when submitting paper UB-04 crossover claims to HP. The IHCP requires direct submission of crossover claims when a claim does not cross over automatically from Medicare. A claim may not cross over for the following reasons: • The Medicare carrier or intermediary is not National Government Services (previously known as AdminaStar Federal of Indiana) or is not a carrier that has a partnership agreement with HP. • Medicare does not reimburse the claim. Medicare denies payment because the service is not covered or does not meet the Medicare medical necessity criteria. • The IHCP provider file does not reflect the Medicare provider number. Chapter 4 of this manual provides additional information. • The provider has no record of a claim crossing over automatically within 60 days after the claim is reimbursed by the Medicare intermediary. • The provider is not a Medicare provider and does not accept assignment to bill the IHCP for dual eligible members. • Some ASCs must bill services to Medicare on a CMS-1500 claim form or 837P transaction with the SG modifier. If the services fail to cross over, the provider must submit the claim on a paper UB-04 claim form with a copy of the MRN. Attachments for UB-04 Paper Claims or 837I Transaction Submissions Mail paper crossover claims to the following address for processing: HP Institutional Crossover Claims P.O. Box 7271 Indianapolis, IN 46207-7271 The following guidelines are required to ensure appropriate processing of Medicare and IHCP-related claims: • Providers must not submit Medicare denied services on the claim form or electronic transaction with Medicare paid services. Providers must split the claim and group all denied line items on one claim or electronic transaction and all paid line items on another. It is critical that providers attach a copy of the MRN to the paper claim or send it as an attachment for the 837I transaction containing the Medicare denied services. • Applicable documentation for third-party liability or spend-down information should be submitted with the paper claim or sent as an attachment for the electronic 837I transaction. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-137 Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Note: EOB codes 0512 and 0545 state that a claim submitted after the one-year filing limit without acceptable documentation does not apply to a crossover claim when Medicare made a payment. Specifically, EOBs 0512 and 0545 are bypassed for cases in which Traditional Medicaid is paying the coinsurance and deductible amounts. If Medicare denies a claim, EOB codes 0512 and 0545 apply to the Traditional Medicaid claim. UB-04 Crossover Billing Procedures Providers should follow the general directions for filling out the UB-04 claim form when filing crossover claims. Providers can also submit crossover claims electronically using the electronic 837I transaction or through Web interChange. The following billing instructions help to ensure accurate processing of all UB-04 Medicare crossover claims: • Use fields 39-41 to indicate a value code of A1 to reflect the Medicare deductible amount, a value code of A2 to reflect the Medicare coinsurance amount, and a value code of 06 to reflect the blood deductible amount. Use a value code of 80 to reflect covered days. • Use fields 50a–54a to reflect Medicare information only. Use form field 54a to indicate the Medicare paid amount. Do not include the Medicare allowed amount or contract adjustment amount in field 54. Do not include Medicare Replacement/HMO policy information in these fields. Note: If the Medicare paid amount is greater than the billed amount, indicate the correct dollar values in the fields. Then reflect the estimated amount due as $0 in form field 55c. This amount does not have a negative impact on the payment of a crossover claim. • Fields 50b–54b are reserved for Medicare supplement carrier information. Use form field 54b to denote any Medicare supplemental carrier or third-party liability payment information, which includes Medicare Replacement/HMO policy information. • Use field 55c to reflect the amount calculated in the following equation: - Total claim amount - Medicare paid (54a) - Medicare supplement or third-party liability (54b) = Est. Amount Due (55c) - Automated Spend-down outpatient hospital claims that span more than one month are credited to spend-down based on individual dates of services as reported on the detail lines of the claim. Note: Leave fields 55a and 55b blank. The amount in form field 55c is not necessarily equal to the coinsurance and deductible amounts present on the Medicare MRN, but is calculated using the correct data for each of the fields. • Field 67, Principal Diagnosis Code, and field 69, Admitting Diagnosis Code, are required for all inpatient claims, including LTC and hospice. Complete these fields to avoid claim denial. • Field 45, Service Date, is required for all outpatient, hospice, renal dialysis, and home health claims. The date in field 45 populates the statement From and Through dates for the aforementioned claim types. EOB code 264 – Date-of-service is missing, posts with a denial on all claims submitted without this required information. 8-138 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 2: UB-04 Billing Instructions Billing Medicare Denied Services If Medicare does not pay a detail, the IHCP does not consider the detail a crossover claim. Providers must bill this detail separately using a UB-04 claim form or the 837I transaction. Providers must attach copies of the MRN and any applicable third-party EOBs when submitting these types of claims. Note: Providers cannot submit paid and denied charges on the same claim form or electronic transaction. Providers must submit the paid portion of the Medicare charges as a crossover claim, and they must submit denied Medicare charges as a separate claim or transaction. Line items submitted on incorrect claim forms are denied. 837I Electronic Transaction Providers must use the standard 837I format to submit electronic institutional claims. These standards are published in the 837I Implementation Guides (IGs). An addenda to most IGs has been published and must be used to properly implement each transaction. The IGs are available for download through the Washington Publishing Company Web site at http://wpc-edi.com. Companion Guides The IHCP has developed technical companion guides to assist application developers during the implementation process. Information contained in the IHCP Companion Guides is intended only to supplement the adopted IGs and provide guidance and clarification as the guides apply to the IHCP. IHCP Companion Guides are never intended to modify, contradict, or reinterpret the rules established by the IGs. The Companion Guides are located on the IHCP Web site at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com in the EDI Solutions section. Some data elements that providers submit may not be used in processing the 837I transaction; however, they may be returned in other transactions, such as the 277 Claim Status Request and Response or the 835 Remittance Advice transactions. These data elements are necessary for processing, and failure to append these data elements may result in claim suspension or denial. Providers may submit as many as 48 occurrence (span) codes and dates. IndianaAIM accepts as many as 24 occurrence codes and 24 occurrence span dates. Diagnosis Codes Providers may submit as many as 27 ICD-9-CM five-digit diagnosis codes on the 837I. IndianaAIM accepts admit, primary, E-code, and 24 secondary diagnosis codes. The provider uses these codes to describe the medical condition of the patient, and the IHCP uses them to process the transaction. The IHCP processes the first 11 diagnosis codes including the principal, admission, and additional diagnosis codes submitted. This rule applies to paper claims and 837I transaction submissions.

For long-term care (LTC), a part of a day, including day of admission, counts as a full day if the member is not readmitted to the hospital by midnight on the same day. The day of death is the day of discharge and is not counted for inpatient or LTC services. Hospice services can include the day of death as a billable date for the hospice portion of the claim when the member resides in a nursing facility. The date of discharge or death is not payable for the room and board portion of the hospice claim when the member resides in a nursing facility. • Always include an admitting code for inpatient claims. • Always include principal, admitting, and E-codes for all claims except religious, nonmedical claims and hospital, other. 8-140 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 3: Telemedicine Overview Effective April 1, 2007, telemedicine services are covered by the Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP). This section discusses applicable coverage parameters and billing guidelines. Telemedicine services are covered by Medicaid within the parameters specified in rule 405 IAC 5-38, which is presented in the Indiana Administrative Code (IAC) section. Definitions • Hub Site – Location of the physician or provider rendering consultation services. • Spoke Site – Location where the patient is physically located when services are provided. • Interactive Television (IATV) – Videoconferencing equipment at the hub and spoke sites that allows real-time, interactive, and face-to-face consultation. • Store and Forward – Electronic transmission of medical information for subsequent review by another health care provider. Only IATV is separately reimbursed by the IHCP. Store-and-forward technology to facilitate other reimbursable services is allowed; however, separate reimbursement of the spoke-site payment will not be provided for this technology because of restrictions in 405 IAC 5-38-2(4). Note: Telemedicine is not the use of the following: (1) Telephone transmitter for transtelephonic monitoring; or (2) Telephone or any other means of communication for consultation from one provider to another Provider/Service Requirements The following service or provider types are not permitted to be reimbursed for telemedicine per 405 IAC 5-38: • Ambulatory surgical centers • Outpatient surgical services • Home health agencies or services • Radiological services • Laboratory services • Long-term care facilities, including nursing facilities, intermediate care facilities, or community residential facilities for the developmentally disabled • Anesthesia services or nurse anesthetist services • Audiological services • Chiropractic services Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-141 Chapter 8 Section 3: Telemedicine Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual • Care coordination services • Durable medical equipment (DME), medical supplies, hearing aids, or oxygen • Optical or optometric services • Podiatric services • Services billed by school corporations • Physical or speech therapy services • Transportation services • Services provided under a Medicaid waiver Conditions of Payment 1. IHCP reimburses for telemedicine services only when the hub and spoke sites are greater than 20 miles apart. 2. The member must be present and able to participate in the visit. 3. For a medical professional to receive reimbursement for professional services in addition to payment for spoke services, medical necessity must be documented. If it is medically necessary for a medical professional to be with the member at the spoke site, the spoke site is permitted to bill an evaluation and management code in addition to the fee for spoke services. Adequate documentation must be maintained in the patient’s medical record to support the need for the provider’s presence at the spoke site during the visit. Documentation is subject to postpayment review. 4. The audio and visual quality of the transmission must meet the needs of the physician located at the hub site. The IATV technology must meet generally accepted standards to allow the physician at the hub site to render medical decisions. Hub Site Services and Billing Requirements The following Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) codes are reimbursable for providers that render services via telemedicine at the hub site. Modifier GT – Via interactive audio and video telecommunications system must be used to denote telemedicine services. The payment amount is equal to the current fee schedule amount for the following services: • Consultations – 99241 to 99245 and 99251 to 99255 • Office or other outpatient visit – 99201 to 99205 and 99211 to 99215 • Individual psychotherapy – 90804 to 90809 • Psychiatric diagnostic interview – 90801 • Pharmacologic management – 90862 • End-stage renal disease (ESRD) services – 90951 to 90970 Spoke Site Services and Billing Requirements The following Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) code and revenue code are reimbursable for providers that render services via telemedicine at the spoke site. Modifier GT – Via interactive audio and video telecommunications system must be used to denote telemedicine services. 8-142 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 3: Telemedicine The payment amount is equal to the current fee schedule amount for HCPCS code Q3014 Telehealth originating site facility fee. 1. Spoke services are reimbursed using HCPCS code Q3014 – Telehealth originating site facility fee. The GT modifier must be used to denote telemedicine services. 2. Revenue code 780 represents telemedicine services. If a different, separately reimbursable treatment room revenue code is provided on the same day as the telemedicine consultation, the appropriate treatment room revenue code should also be included on the claim. Documentation must be maintained in the patient’s record to indicate that services were provided separate from the telemedicine visit. 3. If spoke site services are provided in a physician’s office and other services are provided on the same date as the spoke service, the medical professional should bill Q3014 as a separate line item from other professional services. Documentation Standards 1. Documentation must be maintained at the hub and spoke locations to substantiate the services provided. Documentation must indicate the services were rendered via telemedicine. 2. Documentation must clearly indicate the location of the hub and spoke sites. 3. All other IHCP documentation guidelines for services rendered via telemedicine apply, such as chart notes and start and stop times. Documentation must be available for postpayment review. 4. Providers must have written protocols for circumstances when the member must have a hands-on visit with the consulting provider. The member should always be given the choice between a traditional clinical encounter versus a telemedicine visit. Appropriate consent from the member must be obtained by the spoke site and maintained at the hub and spoke sites. Special Considerations 1. When ongoing services are provided, the member should be seen by a physician for a traditional clinical evaluation at least once a year, unless otherwise stated in policy. In addition, the hub physician should coordinate with the patient’s primary care physician. 2. The existing service limitations for office visits are applicable. All telemedicine consultations billed using the codes listed in the Hub Site Services and Billing Requirements section will be counted against the office visit limit. Third-party liability (TPL), spend-down, managed care, and all other considerations apply. 3. Reimbursement for ESRD-related services under HCPCS codes 90951 to 90970 is permitted in the telemedicine setting. The IHCP requires at least one monthly visit for ESRD-related services to be a traditional clinical encounter to examine the vascular access site. 4. Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) or rural health clinics (RHCs) are only reimbursed for hands-on services and are therefore not permitted to bill for telemedicine services. Managed Care Considerations Refer questions to the appropriate managed care organization (MCO) for risk-based managed care considerations.

Telemedicine shall be limited by the following conditions: (1) The patient must be: (A) physically present at the spoke site; and (B) participate in the visit. (2) The physician or practitioner who will be examining the patient from the hub site must determine if it is medically necessary for a medical professional to be at the spoke site.

Each coding system is described as follows: • ICD-9-CM codes Volume 1 is numeric diagnosis codes, Volume 2 is an alphabetic index, and Volume 3 is a tabular list of codes and an alphabetic index for procedures. • Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) Level I codes are Current Procedural Terminology® (CPT) numeric codes and modifiers created by the American Medical Association (AMA). • HCPCS Level II codes are A through V alphanumeric codes and modifiers created by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and are found in the HCPCS manual. These codes identify products, supplies, materials, and services that are not included in the CPT code book. Except where otherwise noted, the IHCP uses coding practices created and published by these entities. Coding exceptions and clarifications are noted throughout the remainder of this chapter. Additional exceptions related to the Medicare resource-based relative value (RBRVS) reimbursement system are noted in Chapter 7 of this manual. Providers should always monitor all bulletins, banner page articles, and newsletter articles for future coding information and clarification of billing practices. 8-148 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Claims Submission Addresses Mail all claims, including those that have passed the filing limit, to one of the following addresses: HP CMS-1500 Claims P.O.

CMS-1500 Paper Claim Form Requirements This section provides a brief overview for completing the CMS-1500 claim form version 08-05. Note: Providers are encouraged to submit claims on the standard red-ink form to expedite claim processing and improve the accuracy of data entry. Billing and Rendering Provider Numbers The following are the four provider classifications: 1. Billing – A practitioner or facility operating under a unique taxpayer identification number (TIN). The TIN may be the practitioner’s Social Security number (SSN) or a Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN), but a sole proprietor’s TIN may not be shared or used by any other practitioner, group, or facility. 2. Group – Any practice with one or more practitioners (rendering providers) sharing a common TIN. A group may be a corporation or partnership, or any other legally defined business entity. The group must have members linked to the business, and these members are identified as rendering (the person performing the service) providers. 3. Rendering – The provider that performs the services. Reimbursement for these services is paid to the group and reported on the group’s TIN. 4. Dual – A provider that is a billing and rendering provider. The provider is enrolled as a billing provider at one or more locations, and is also a member of a group or groups at one or more locations. It is imperative that providers enter only the NPI in field 33a on the CMS-1500. Placement of more than one NPI in this field could result in reimbursement of the claim to the wrong provider. For more instructions about NPI requirements, see the National Provider Identifier and One-to-One Match section in Section 1 of this chapter. Note: Atypical providers (nonmedical service providers) will continue to bill using the Legacy Provider Identifier (LPI) in field 33b with the 1D qualifier.

These standards are published in the 837P Implementation Guides (IGs). An addendum to most IGs has been published and must be used to properly implement each transaction. The IGs are available for download through the Washington Publishing Company Web site at http://wpc-edi.com. Companion Guides The IHCP has developed technical companion guides to assist application developers during the implementation process. Information contained in the IHCP Companion Guides is only intended to supplement the adopted IGs and provide guidance and clarification as it applies to the IHCP. Companion guides are never intended to modify, contradict, or reinterpret the rules established by the IGs. The companion guides are located on the IHCP Web site at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com/general-provider-services/electronic-data-interchange-(edi)solutions/ihcp-companion-guides.aspx in the EDI Solutions section. Some data elements that providers submit may not be used in processing the 837P transaction; however, those data elements may be returned in other transactions, such as the 277 Claim Status Request and Response or the 835 Remittance Advice transactions. These data elements are necessary for processing, and failure to append these data elements may result in claim suspension or claim denial. Paper data requirements should mirror or be modified to mirror that of the 837P implementation guide and current claim processing requirements. Paper and electronic billing procedures must also be aligned for the provider. It is not necessary to maintain separate manuals and procedure rules. Diagnosis Codes Providers may submit up to eight ICD-9-CM five-digit diagnosis codes. Providers use these codes to describe the medical condition of the patient, and the IHCP uses them for processing the transaction. The IHCP processes the first four diagnosis codes. This rule applies to paper and electronic claims submissions. Modifiers IndianaAIM accepts procedure modifiers for providers billing on the CMS-1500 claim form or 837P. Modifiers allow greater flexibility in billing the type or degree of services rendered, and the IHCP encourages providers to incorporate modifiers into their IHCP billing practices. The IHCP recognizes CPT and HCPCS modifiers. Note: The only modifiers mandatory for IHCP usage are pricing, processing, anesthesia, physical status, and medical direction modifiers. However, providers should always include any modifier that is applicable according to correct coding criteria. The modifiers are categorized according to type. Table 8.37 lists the definition for each modifier type. Table 8.38 lists the CMS-1500 modifiers.

Procedure code linkage is not required for these modifiers. Pricing Used to read a fee segment. A rate is linked to the procedure code modifier combination. These modifiers must be linked to the procedure code in IndianaAIM. Processing Used to modify a fee segment by a percent or by a dollar amount. These modifiers must be linked to the procedure code in IndianaAIM. Review Causes a claim to suspend for review. Procedure code linkage is not required for these modifiers. Anesthesia Used to route the claim through the anesthesia pricing logic. These modifiers must be linked to the procedure code in IndianaAIM. Physical Status Used to modify the anesthesia units submitted on the claim form. These modifiers must be linked to the procedure code in IndianaAIM. Medical Direction Used in anesthesia processing. Procedure code linkage is not required for these modifiers.

Documentation in the medical record must contain the more specific POS for each service rendered. For example: A community mental health center (CMHC) provides four units of case management services to a member in the office at 10 a.m. on July 10, 2009, and on the same day provides an additional three units of case management at 3 p.m. in the member’s home. The CMHC may bill for seven units of service on one detail of the claim at POS 11 (office) and document in the medical record the number of units rendered at each individual POS. All providers must follow established policy and coding guidelines for their specialty. Fee-for-service FQHC or RHC providers should bill only one encounter per IHCP member, per provider, per day unless the diagnosis differs. RBMC may have other specific reimbursement guidelines. Providers rendering services in the RBMC delivery system should contact the MCO with whom they are contracted for information about the billing of multiple service locations. U Modifiers The Office of Medicaid Policy and Planning (OMPP) has specifically designated U modifiers for the use of Medicaid as defined by state. Modifiers U1 through U9 and UA through UD are defined as “Medicaid Level of Care 1 – 13, as defined by each state.” The IHCP uses many of these modifiers for dual purposes. A U modifier indicates that a procedure was altered by circumstance, but not changed in meaning. U modifiers are two-character numeric or alphanumeric codes that providers add to the end of a CPT/HCPCS code. The IHCP accepts up to four procedure code modifiers on all professional claims, paper and electronic CMS-1500, and electronic 837P transactions. Waiver providers must utilize the modifier U7 for all waiver services. Providers should use modifier U7 even if other modifiers are required in the procedure code and modifier combination. Failure to add the U7 modifier and any other required modifier may result in claim denial or an incorrect payment. Substitute Physicians and Locum Tenens Substitute physicians and locum tenens may fill in for a member’s regular physician. The regular physician may be the member’s primary care physician or primary medical provider (PMP), or a specialist that a member sees on a regular basis. The substitute physician or locum tenens must be the same discipline as the regular physician. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-173 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Substitute Physicians A substitute physician is a physician who is asked by the regular physician to see a member in a reciprocal agreement when the regular physician is unavailable to see the member. A substitute physician may be asked to see a member if the regular physician is not available or on call. The substitute arrangement does not apply to physicians in the same medical group with claims submitted in the name of the medical group. In addition, a substitute physician arrangement should not exceed 14 days. In a substitute physician arrangement, the regular physician reciprocates the substitute physician either by paying the substitute the amount received for the service rendered or by providing the same service in return. In a substitute physician arrangement, the regular physician and the substitute physician must be enrolled as an IHCP provider. In field 24D of the CMS-1500 claim form, enter the modifier Q5 to indicate that a substitute physician rendered the services. Locum Tenens Physicians Providers can create a locum tenens arrangement when the regular physician must leave his or her practice due to illness, vacation, or medical education opportunity and does not want to leave his or her patients without service during this period. Providers use the locum tenens arrangement in a single or a group practice, but the locum tenens physician cannot be a member of the group in which the regular physician is a member. The locum tenens physician usually has no practice of his or her own and moves from area to area as needed. The physician is usually paid a fixed per diem amount with the status of an independent contractor, not an employee. The locum tenens physician must meet all the requirements for practice in Indiana as well as all the hospital or other institutional credentialing requirements prior to providing services to IHCP members. The practitioner providing locum tenens services is not required to be an IHCP provider. The regular physician’s office must maintain documentation of the locum tenens arrangement, including what services were rendered and when they were provided. The regular physician’s office personnel submit claims for the locum tenens services using the regular physician’s NPI and modifier Q6 in form field 24D of the CMS-1500 claim form. Locum tenens arrangements should not exceed 90 consecutive days. If the physician is away from his or her practice for more than 90 days, a new locum tenens would be necessary. If a locum tenens provider remains in the same practice for more than 90 days, he or she must enroll as an IHCP provider. Anesthesia Services The Administrative Simplification requirements of HIPAA mandated adopting the standards for the anesthesia CPT codes. Providers submit anesthesia services using anesthesia CPT codes 00100 through 01999. Providers must submit anesthesia charges using the anesthesia CPT code that corresponds to the surgical procedure performed. Coverage and Billing Procedures The following types of anesthesia are eligible for separate reimbursement under the IHCP, when provided by a physician other than the operating surgeon: • Epidural • Field block 8-174 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions • Inhalation • Intravenous • Nerve block • Regional • Spinal General, regional, or epidural anesthesia administered by the same provider performing the surgical or obstetrical delivery procedure is not reimbursable, because it is included in the surgical delivery fee. When billing regional anesthesia as the anesthesia type for a given surgical procedure that is performed by a qualified anesthesia professional, providers bill regional anesthesia in the same manner as a general anesthetic, such as base units plus time, and it will be reimbursed the same way. Do not use the bilateral procedure code modifier 50 in conjunction with anesthesia modifiers. Time Providers should indicate the actual time of the service rendered, in minutes, in field 24G of the CMS1500 claim form. IndianaAIM calculates the time units, and it allows one unit for each 15-minute period or fraction thereof. Time starts when the anesthesiologist or certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA) begins preparing the patient for the procedure in the operating room or other appropriate area. Starting to count time when the preoperative examination occurs is not appropriate. The IHCP reimbursement of the preoperative exam is included in the base units. Time ends when the anesthesiologist or CRNA releases the patient to the postoperative unit and is no longer in constant attendance. Base Units The IHCP has assigned relative value units (RVUs) or base unit values to each CPT code that would normally allow for anesthesia services. Note: Providers do not report the base units on claims. IndianaAIM automatically determines the base units for the procedure code as submitted on the CMS1500 claim form or the 837P transaction. Additional Units IndianaAIM, the claims processing system, recognizes and calculates additional units for the following: • Patient age – IndianaAIM applies additional units to the base units for members under 1 year of age or more than 70 years old. • Procedure code 99140 – Providers should bill this service on a separate line item of the claim to indicate that the anesthesia provided was complicated by emergency conditions. • Physical status – Providers should utilize the appropriate status modifier to denote any conditions described in the modifier descriptions listed in Table 8.41. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-175 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Table 8.41 – Status Modifiers – Anesthesia Modifier P1 P2 P3 P4 P5 P6 Description A normal healthy patient for an elective operation A patient with mild systemic disease A patient with severe systemic disease A patient with a severe systemic disease that is a constant threat to life A moribund patient who is not expected to survive without the operation.

Anesthesia Reimbursement IndianaAIM converts minutes to units (one unit equals 15 minutes) and adds the assigned base units in addition to units for modifying circumstances for a total unit value times the anesthesia conversion factor. Base Units + Time Units + Additional Units for age (if applicable) + Additional Units for physical status modifiers (as applicable) x Anesthesia Conversion Factor = Anesthesia Reimbursement Rate Providers can add additional reimbursement to the anesthesia reimbursement rate if billing CPT codes for emergency (99140) or other qualifying circumstances. The current IHCP anesthesia conversion factor is $13.88. 8-176 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Medical Direction and Certified Registered Nurse Anesthesiologist Billing Requirements Anesthesia services that are medically directed by an anesthesiologist are priced at 30 percent of the allowed rate. Anesthesia services that are rendered by a certified registered nurse anesthesiologist (CRNA) are priced at 60 percent of the allowed amount. CRNAs enrolled in the IHCP provider program must use anesthesia CPT codes (00100-01999). CRNAs that bill with their individual rendering NPI must not use modifiers listed in Table 8.42. Anesthesia procedure code modifiers listed in Table 8.42 must be reported to identify services rendered by CRNAs not enrolled in the IHCP and the anesthesiologist providing medical direction. According to 405 IAC 5-10-3 (i), reimbursement is available for medical direction of a procedure involving an anesthetist only when the direction is by an anesthesiologist, and only when the anesthesiologist medically directs two, three, or four concurrent procedures involving qualified anesthetists. Reimbursement is not available for medical direction in cases in which an anesthesiologist is concurrently administering anesthesia and providing medical direction. Table 8.42 – Procedure Code Modifiers – Anesthesia (CRNAs) Modifier Description QS Monitored anesthesia care services QX CRNA with medical direction by a physician QZ CRNA without medical direction by a physician QK Medical direction of two, three, or four concurrent anesthesia procedures involving qualified individuals Note: CRNA providers use the same physical status modifiers that apply to the anesthesiologist. Anesthesiologists billing for medical direction should use the QK modifier. An anesthesiologist involved in medically directing more than one and up to four procedures cannot be personally performing procedures at the same time. Criteria for medical direction include the following: • Ensure that only qualified individuals administer the anesthesia • Monitor anesthesia at frequent intervals • Participate in the most demanding portions of the procedures, including induction and emergence, if applicable • Perform the preoperative evaluation • Perform the postoperative evaluation • Prescribe anesthesia plan • Remain immediately available and not performing other services concurrently Anesthesia for Vaginal or Cesarean Delivery Providers billing anesthesia services for labor and delivery use the anesthesia CPT vaginal or cesarean delivery CPT codes. This method of billing is the same for any other surgery and for obstetrical Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-177 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions anesthesia, regardless of the type of anesthesia provided (such as general or regional), including epidural anesthesia. When the anesthesiologist starts an epidural for labor, and switching to a general anesthetic for the delivery becomes necessary, combine and bill the total time for the procedure performed, such as vaginal delivery or cesarean section (C-section). Base RVUs are in IndianaAIM for providers, and providers do not list them on the CMS-1500 claim form or 837P transaction. However, the actual time of the procedure should be indicated in minutes in field 24G on the CMS-1500 claim form. The same method of billing applies to anesthesia for all services. IndianaAIM calculates total units by adding base RVUs to the number of time units, which are calculated by the system, based on the number of minutes billed on the claim. IndianaAIM converts each 15-minute block of time to one time unit. However, for procedure codes 01960 and 01967, IndianaAIM calculates one time unit for each 15-minute block of time billed in the first hour of service and, for subsequent hours of service, calculates one unit of service for every 60-minute block of time or portion billed. When a provider, other than the surgeon or obstetrician, bills for epidural anesthesia, the IHCP reimburses that provider in the same manner as for general anesthesia. Table 8.43 is a list of applicable vaginal and cesarean delivery CPT codes. Table 8.43 – Procedure Codes – Vaginal or Cesarean Delivery CPT Procedure Code Description 01960 Anesthesia for vaginal delivery only 01961 Anesthesia for cesarean delivery only 01962 Anesthesia for urgent hysterectomy following delivery 01963 Anesthesia for cesarean hysterectomy without any labor analgesia/anesthesia care 01965 Anesthesia for incomplete or missed abortion procedures 01966 Anesthesia for induced abortion procedures 01967 Neuraxial labor analgesia or anesthesia for planned vaginal delivery (this includes any repeat subarachnoid needle placement and drug injection and/or any necessary replacement of an epidural catheter during labor) 01968 Anesthesia for cesarean delivery following neuraxial labor analgesia/anesthesia (list separately in addition to code for primary procedure performed) 01969 Anesthesia for cesarean hysterectomy following neuraxial labor analgesia/anesthesia (list separately in addition to code for primary procedure performed) Monitored Anesthesia Monitored anesthesia care (MAC) involves the intraoperative monitoring of a patient’s vital signs in anticipation of the need for administration of general anesthesia or the development of adverse physiological patient reaction to the surgical procedure. MAC also includes the performance of a preanesthetic examination and evaluation, prescription of the anesthesia care required, administration of 8-178 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions any necessary oral or parenteral medications (such as Atropine, Demerol, or Valium), and the provision of indicated postoperative anesthesia care. The IHCP allows payment for medically reasonable and necessary MAC services on the same basis as other anesthesia services. Providers must append the QS modifier to the appropriate CPT code in addition to other applicable modifiers to identify the services as monitored anesthesia care. General Anesthesia for Dental Procedures The IHCP covers general anesthesia for dental procedures for members 21 years old and older if the procedure is performed in an inpatient or hospital outpatient setting. The IHCP does not cover general anesthesia for dental procedures performed in a dentist’s office. Adult dental patients who may qualify for hospital or surgical center general anesthesia include, but are not limited to, adults with the following medical conditions: • Mental incapacitation, such that the member’s ability to cooperate with procedures is impaired, including mental retardation and organic brain disease • Previously demonstrated idiosyncratic or severe reactions to IV sedation medication • Seizure disorders • Severe physical disorders affecting the tongue or jaw movements • Significant psychiatric disorders resulting in impairment of the member’s ability to cooperate with the procedures Regional Anesthesia (Epidural, Nerve Block, Spinal) Regional anesthesia or nerve blocks involve blocking nerve impulses with a local anesthetic, steroid, narcotic, or other agent. Physicians administer a nerve block, and it requires special techniques and attention, especially during the initial phase of instituting the block. Providers should bill nerve blocks performed as a surgical procedure for the treatment of a condition, such as chronic pain with the appropriate nerve block code, quantity of one, with no anesthesia modifier. General, regional, or epidural anesthesia administered by the same provider performing the surgical or obstetrical delivery procedure is not reimbursable, because it is included in the surgical delivery fee. Postoperative Pain Management Services The IHCP reimburses for postoperative epidural catheter management services using procedure code 01996. The IHCP does not pay separately for procedure code 01996 on the same day the epidural is placed. Rather, providers should bill this code on subsequent days when the epidural is actually being managed. Providers should use this code for daily management of patients receiving continuous epidural, subdural, or subarachnoid analgesia. The IHCP limits this procedure to one unit of service for each day of management. Procedure code 01996 is only reimbursable during active administration of the drug. Providers should not append a modifier when this procedure is monitored by an anesthesia provider. Care Coordination Services Coverage and Billing Procedures Care coordination is the process that integrates services according to an individual’s needs. This process includes comprehensive assessment, development of an individualized service plan, linking Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-179 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions individuals with services, monitoring services received, and measuring individual progress and evaluation. It also includes development of collaborative arrangements among service providers that are simultaneously serving the individual’s needs, resulting in an integrated system of services. The IHCP, in collaboration with the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH), promote the Pregnancy Care Coordination Programs. The IFSSA in collaboration with the ISDH promotes the HIV/AIDS Care Coordination Programs. Notes: Providers interested in becoming prenatal care coordinators should contact HP for further information about certification. Providers interested in becoming HIV/AIDS care coordinators should contact the ISDH for more information about certification. Care coordination services may obtain the Care Coordination Outcome Report form from the IHCP Web site at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com/general-provider-services/forms.aspx or by calling HP Customer Assistance at (317) 655-3240 in the local area or toll free at 1-800-577-1278. Care coordination services are available for enrolled IHCP members who have Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) or Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS), are pregnant, have a mental illness diagnosis, or have an emotional disturbance. IHCP members must be enrolled in the IHCP to be eligible for the services to be paid. Providers can verify eligibility for a member through the Eligibility Verification System (EVS). Failure to do so may result in denial of payment. The member’s name must appear on the claim form exactly as it appears in the eligibility file. The IHCP reminds providers to check eligibility every time they render a service. Care coordination services are not covered for Package C members. The IHCP allows reimbursement on a fee-for-service (FFS) basis. Eligible members may receive care coordination services only from an appropriate and enrolled care coordination provider. There is a oneyear claim filing limit from the date of service. Third-Party Liability (Private Insurance) and Care Coordination Claims For HIV/AIDS care coordination services, providers must use diagnosis code 042 – HIV/AIDS and procedure code G9012 – Other Specified Case Management. Providers must bill a principal diagnosis code of V68.9 – Unspecified administrative purpose for care coordination claims, and providers should use it only for HIV/AIDS. Federal regulations require the IHCP to be the payer of last resort; however, it is rare for insurance to cover care coordination services. Therefore, the IHCP does not require that any provider file for reimbursement from third-party insurers. The claims can be submitted directly to the IHCP. Prenatal Care Coordination Services Note: Payment for care coordination services must not duplicate payments made to public agencies or private entities under other program authorities for the same purpose. Care coordination services provide case management services for pregnant women. Care coordination is an active, ongoing process of assisting the member to identify, access, and use community resources and coordinating the services to meet individual needs. This includes locating service sources, making appointments for services, arranging transportation to services, and following up to verify appointments or reschedule appointments for women whose pregnancies are at risk for low birth weight or poor pregnancy outcome. Pregnant women identified as high-risk patients due to medical or 8-180 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions psychosocial conditions may also receive pregnancy care coordination services through the IHCP. For more information, refer to 405 IAC 5-11. Enrollment of Prenatal Care Coordinators Reimbursement is available for care coordination services provided to eligible pregnant women by any of the following professionals: • Physician licensed by the State under IC 25-22.5-1 • Registered nurse licensed by the State • Social worker with a baccalaureate or master’s degree from a school accredited by the Council on Social Work Education or a social worker certified by the State • Dietitian registered with the Commission on Dietetic Registration of the American Dietetic Association • Community health worker under the supervision of one of the professionals listed Additional information about enrollment is included in Chapter 4 of this manual. Care Coordination Services Risk Assessment Form Providers must keep record of a risk assessment in the member’s file to substantiate services beyond the initial assessment. If the provider deems a pregnancy not at risk during the initial assessment, but later factors put the outcome at risk, services can be resumed. Providers must maintain documentation of the hig risk pregnancy in the member’s file. All the forms used to document prenatal care coordination services are available on the IHCP Web site at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com. Providers use pregnancy care coordination services to prevent preterm or poor pregnancy outcomes by facilitating the linking of the pregnant women to all necessary services, including medical, health promotion, and social services. Physicians, registered nurses, social workers, and registered dietitians with certified training in pregnancy case management can provide these services on a trimester basis, including the following services: • Follow-up activities to ensure services were received • Home visits, including the initial and postpartum home visit • Referral to social service agencies Prenatal Care Coordination and Managed Care If the initial assessment indicates a high-risk condition that could potentially result in a poor pregnancy outcome, members can receive prenatal care coordination services as an intervention. Once the pregnancy has been identified as being high-risk, the prenatal care coordinator must conduct additional prenatal reassessments to gather vital information about the pregnancy. The Outcome Report, which is to be completed during the final postpartum visit, is used to assess mother and baby’s health resulting from individualized services delivered throughout the high-risk pregnancy. Care Select pregnancy care coordination services require PMP authorization. In field 19 of the CMS1500 claim form or 837P transaction, providers must indicate the two-character certification code, provided by the PMP. For RBMC members assigned to an MCO, providers must contact the MCO for further information. MCO contact information is included in Chapter 1. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-181 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Statewide Mandatory Risk-Based Managed Care Impact on Prenatal Care Coordination RBMC for all Hoosier Healthwise members expanded across Indiana in 2005. Prenatal Care Coordination (PNCC) Program providers should monitor IHCP providers throughout Indiana. The PNCC Program providers must contract with Hoosier Healthwise MCOs in their county to continue to receive reimbursement for services. The MCO maintains responsibility for the delivery and payment of PNCC services for its members. The IHCP encourages prenatal care coordinators to contract with all MCOs in their county. There are three state MCOs. The Indiana PNCC Program is being standardized to facilitate contracting and providing services with the three MCOs. Note: Reimbursement rate for prenatal care coordinator services remains unchanged. Reimbursement for the appropriate ICD-9 code, billed on a CMS-1500 claim form, is a maximum of $240 per qualifying member. Providers submit billing to the member’s MCO. Data for the mandatory Medicaid Prenatal Outcome Report form that is attached to the Postpartum Assessment Form billing form is now incorporated into the standardized assessment forms to facilitate data gathering. The IHCP requires that all certified prenatal care coordinators and community health workers use the mandatory standardized Combined Initial and Reassessment Prenatal Care Coordination Assessment Form (CIRPNCCAF), the Postpartum Assessment Form (PPAF), and Medicaid Prenatal Outcome Report. Also, use the following forms when required: • Care Coordination Outcome Report: Providers use this form to report statistical data for care coordination services in Indiana. In the past, the Care Coordination Outcome Report was completed by the care coordinator and submitted with the postpartum visit billing claim when sent to HP. Prenatal care coordinators no longer send claims or outcome reports to HP unless a client is a member of Care Select or not enrolled in an MCO. With RBMC mandatory in all counties, providers send assessment forms to the MCO in which the member is enrolled. To cut down on reports received by the MCOs, the data found on the Care Coordination Outcome Report has been incorporated into the CIRPNCCAF and the PPAF. Note: The areas highlighted in gray on the CIRPNCCAF and the PPAF contain information previously included on the Medicaid Prenatal Outcome Report. A copy of the appropriate assessment form is faxed to the MCO at the time of each claim. The outcome information is collected throughout the pregnancy and postpartum period. Contact each MCO for specific information on transmission of assessment forms. • Prenatal Risk Assessment Form: PNCC services that will be reimbursed by the IHCP include a prenatal risk assessment, one initial assessment and follow-up, one reassessment and follow-up per trimester occurring after the initial assessment, and one postpartum assessment. In the past, PNCC providers used suggested forms for each of these assessments. To standardize the PNCC Program, all providers are required to complete the CIRPNCCAF and the PPAF. The Prenatal Risk Assessment Form is available on the IHCP Web site Forms page at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com/general-provider-services/forms.aspx.

The billing limit for this code is one unit per pregnancy and must include the following: • Case finding risk assessment; care plan development; two encounters, one of which must be a home visit; coordination, referral, and linkage to appropriate support services; and follow-up monitoring • Documentation including an Initial Assessment form and an individual care plan H1004 – Reassessment The billing limit for this code is one unit per trimester, following the trimester of initial assessment. • Available only for at-risk pregnancies • Includes review and update of care plan; coordination referral and linkage to appropriate support services; two encounters, one of which must be either a home visit or a visit at the care coordinator’s office; and follow-up monitoring. Document this with a Reassessment form and a follow-up record. 99501 – Home Visit for Postnatal Assessment and Follow-up Care The billing limit for this code is one unit per child per pregnancy. • Must be completed within 60 days postpartum, preferably within two weeks. • Must follow an initial assessment and is only reimbursable for a pregnancy determined to be atrisk. • Includes a home visit referral and linkage to appropriate support services. A copy of the Care Coordination Outcome Report is available online at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com/generalprovider-services/forms.aspx. • Must be documented by a Care Coordination Outcome Report. Attach a completed copy of the Care Coordination Outcome Report to the claim for the postpartum visit submitted for payment. Providers should document multiple births on the claim form to explain duplicate billing of postpartum assessment and outcome services. For claims for multiple births, providers must attach the Care Coordination Outcome Report to the claim for the postpartum visit for each child born of the pregnancy. Care Coordination Outcome Report The IHCP uses a Prenatal Care Coordination Outcome Report form to report statistical data for care coordination services in Indiana. Use the expanded Care Coordination Outcome Report during the postpartum visit to assess and report postpartum and newborn results. The postpartum visit (99502) is the only service that requires a copy of the Care Coordination Outcome Report form to be completed Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-183 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions by the care coordinator and submitted with the claim when billing for the visit. The Care Coordination Outcome Report is available from the IHCP Web site at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com/general-provider-services/forms.aspx. Care Coordination Services for Human Immunodeficiency Virus/Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome The IHCP provides targeted case management or care coordination services to members with HIV and AIDS, available statewide. Definition of Service HIV and AIDS care coordination is a specialized form of case management for members with HIV infection. Care coordination consists of goal-oriented activities that locate, create, facilitate access to, coordinate, and monitor the full range of HIV-related health and human services. The purpose is to encourage the cost-effective use of medical and community resources and to promote the well-being of the individual while ensuring the individual’s freedom of choice. To ensure freedom of choice, the individual signs a Freedom of Choice/Intent to Participate Form acknowledging an understanding of the services provided and identifying the chosen care coordination provider. Care coordination services are those that assist Traditional Medicaid-eligible individuals from the targeted group to access needed medical, psychological, social, educational, and other services. Member Eligibility To be eligible for reimbursement for care coordination, a member must be a Traditional Medicaid, Hoosier Healthwise, or Care Select member and have a documented HIV infection. Medical documentation or verification of medical diagnosis of HIV infection must be in the member’s care coordination file. Providers can verify the diagnosis with the following types of documentation: • Confidential, positive HIV test result • A physician’s statement • Hospital discharge statement or other medical reports that verify the diagnosis • Medical prescription for AZT, ddI, or ddC, or copy of approval for participation in the AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) or the Early Intervention Program (EIP) Enrollment of HIV and AIDS Care Coordinators To receive reimbursement for HIV and AIDS care coordination services, the service provider must be enrolled in the IHCP. Refer to Chapter 4 for provider enrollment requirements and information. Procedure Code for Billing HIV/AIDS Care Coordination The IHCP policy for billing HIV care coordination services states that providers must use primary diagnosis code 042 – HIV/AIDS and procedure code G9012 – Other Specified Case Management. HIV and AIDS care coordination services are self-referral services under the Hoosier Healthwise and Care Select programs. HIV/AIDS care coordination claims are not subject to managed care edits; therefore, there is no requirement for a PMP’s certification code and NPI on the CMS-1500 claim form or the 837P transaction. Providers serving members in the RBMC delivery system should contact the appropriate managed care organization for claim filing requirements. One unit of service equals 15 minutes. 8-184 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Restrictions • As determined by the Assessment of Intensity of Care Coordination/Worksheet for Data Entry form, care coordination services must not exceed a maximum of 128 units, or 32 hours, per calendar quarter, or three-month period, per member. Note: The following provides information about the Assessment of Intensity of Care Coordination/Worksheet for Data Entry form: – Developed to substantiate the need for higher intensity levels of service as well as to collect data. – Completed at the beginning of each quarter to determine the maximum number of hours allowed per member. – Expected that most members use between six and one-half hours and nine hours per quarter and some use less. – Anticipated that few members require more than nine hours per quarter. – Describes the supporting factors for the number of care coordination hours used. Substantiate supporting factors through self-report, medical records, caregiver records, other agency reports, or physical observation. Document substantiation in the member’s file. • When providers reach the maximum level of hours allowed in a given quarter, submit a new and updated Assessment of Intensity of Care Coordination/Worksheet for Data Entry form to request additional hours. • Eligible members may receive HIV and AIDS care coordination services that are reimbursable by the IHCP from only one HIV and AIDS care coordination service provider. Care Coordination Services Provider Requirements The following are care coordination service provider requirements: • Each year, service providers must take required updated training about the nature of HIV infection and institutional and community intervention resources. • Service providers must maintain written documentation of all services provided. Documentation is subject to postpayment review and audit by the OMPP or its contracted agent. • Service providers must provide care coordination services that are structured and time-goal oriented. • Service providers must develop a plan of care for each member that reflects individual needs and includes strategies, outcome objectives, and time frames for each individual who receives care coordination services. Providers must update the plan of care at least annually to reflect changing needs. • The IHCP requires service providers to keep comprehensive records on all members on forms approved by the OMPP and the Division of Disability, Aging, and Rehabilitative Services (DDARS). The following records must be available in each member’s file and updated annually if applicable: - Determination of eligibility - Documentation of a verified diagnosis of HIV infection Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-185 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions - - Intake form Assessment and reevaluation of the member’s present problems, indications of medical and physical status, indications of psychological status, quality of social supports, living arrangements, and status of other relevant factors Documentation of service provider referrals Progress notes Comprehensive plan of care Documentation of member and service provider contacts, including face-to-face contacts Signed release-of-information form • Service providers must permit access to and examination of records by those authorized by the OMPP, its agent, or federal personnel. Providers must maintain records for seven years and perform record destruction, such as burning or shredding documents, in a confidential manner. • Service providers must develop the member’s plan of care on or before the 30th day following the date of the initial intake process. At least annually, providers must complete reevaluations and update the plan of care. Providers must maintain ongoing contacts either face-to-face or by telephone with the member or member’s representative at least once every 30 days from the date of the initial intake process. If providers cannot maintain contact, they must make notation of attempted contacts and the process used in the file to determine whether services continue. • The IHCP requires service providers to engage in face-to-face consultations with members or member representatives at least once every 90 days, measured from the date of the initial intake process, at a place mutually agreed on by both parties. • Service providers must have sufficient care coordination, support, and administrative staff to meet the service demands in the area, allowing for a reasonable care coordinator to member ratio. The recommended national standard ratio for HIV and AIDS care coordination is 1:35. • Service providers must obtain input about member service satisfaction from members, summarize this input at least annually, and have this information available for review. • The IHCP requires service providers to provide quarterly reports to the DDARS on the approved forms. • Service providers must have the data collection and analysis capability required to prepare monthly statistical reports concerning member demographics, including but not limited to: age, race, sex, risk exposure category, and other relevant data in a format approved by the DDARS. • Service providers must develop and maintain a current list of support services in the community available to members who are HIV infected, as well as established referral mechanisms. • The IHCP requires service providers to maintain member files in a secure area to protect member confidentiality. Information stored on computerized data systems must have password protection. Providers must adopt and adhere to a written policy protecting confidentiality that states that all information about the member is confidential information. The service provider cannot use any information obtained about the member in any way except as necessary for the proper discharge of responsibilities. Providers must treat all information, such as personal facts and circumstances concerning the member, as privileged communication and cannot divulge it without the written consent of the member or the member’s legal representative. • Service providers ensure that services are available to all eligible members regardless of age, race, sex, sexual orientation or preference, ethnicity, religion, national origin, or handicap. • Service providers must comply with licensing and accreditation standards as required by the OMPP or its agent. 8-186 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions • Service providers determine whether the member is eligible for services in accordance with the OMPP and the DDARS established policy and procedures. • Service providers comply with procedures for administrative review of the appeals of applicants and members. • The IHCP requires service providers to prepare and submit claims in accordance with stated policies and procedures of the OMPP or its agent. HIV/AIDS Care Coordination Services by Care Coordinators The following are the approved activities of the care coordinator: • Intake and assessment – The care coordinator completes a Freedom of Choice/Intent to Participate Form, an intake and an assessment on the areas in the following list, and an Assessment of Care Coordination/Worksheet for Data Entry form: - Presenting problems - Medical and physical status - Indicators of psychosocial status - Indicators of developmental and intellectual status - Living arrangements - Status of other relevant factors • Plan of Care Development – Based on the information gathered in the assessment, the care coordinator and the member develop a comprehensive plan of care using the following techniques. The care coordinator must develop the plan of care on or before the 30th day after the date of the initial intake: - Prioritizing the needs identified in the assessment - Developing outcome goals that address identified needs - Identifying factors that may impinge on the implementation of the plan of care - Proposing and discussing preliminary strategies for meeting outcome goals and obtaining signed approval from the member or the member’s legal representative - Specifying the time frame for meeting outcome goals - Developing evaluation criteria to measure whether outcome goals are being met - Identifying specific services, costs, and sources of payment - Contracting with the member or the member’s legal representative to apportion the rights and responsibilities between the member and the care coordinator - Developing procedures for emergency situations • Implementation – The care coordinator negotiates agreements with service providers, coordinates delivery of service, maintains the member’s record, and implements the plan of care developed with the member or member representative. The care coordinator works to ensure nonduplication and cost-effectiveness of services, and maintains member records in accordance with reporting requirements. The care coordinator acts as a facilitator in resolving access problems that arise in implementing the plan of care and acts as an advocate for the development of new services. • Monitoring – The care coordinator ensures implementation of the services identified in the plan of care by monitoring planned interventions in a timely fashion and obtaining confirmation of scheduled interventions by the member, the service provider, or both. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-187 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions • Evaluation – The care coordinator periodically engages in the following activities to measure the quality and the effectiveness of the plan of care: - Analysis of information generated through the monitoring function, such as quality and effectiveness of interventions, appropriateness of goals and strategies, the member’s legal representative’s commitment to participate in the plan of care, and the member or member’s legal representative’s satisfaction with the plan of care. - Comparison of plan of care objectives with actual outcomes of the intervention. • Reevaluation – The care coordinator makes scheduled reevaluations to the plan of care in view of continuing or changing needs of the member based on the periodic evaluation. Evaluations and reevaluations require ongoing contact with the member. As part of the reevaluation process and in addition to the following list, the care coordinator completes the Assessment of Care Coordination/Worksheet for Data Entry Form at the beginning of every quarter, starting with the date of the initial assessment. When there is a change in member needs, the care coordinator does the following: - Revises the plan of care outcome goals - Reevaluates the priority of member needs - Revises the plan of care strategies - Realigns technical service resources - Proposes and discusses new strategies for meeting outcome goals subject to member or representative approval - Specifies new time frames for meeting outcome goals - Enters into a new contract with the member or representative to reapportion the rights and responsibilities of the member and the care coordinator • Termination – On reevaluation of the plan of care, the care coordinator and the member or the member’s legal representative determine whether services should continue. The decision is made based on whether the following is true: - Care coordination services are still required. - The member or member’s legal representative elects to continue care coordination services. - The member or representative is upholding his or her contracted agreement set forth in the plan of care. - The member or representative is cooperating with the agreed-upon plan of care. - The member is aggressive or noncooperative with the care coordinator. Billable versus nonbillable activities – Any of the activities of care coordination are billable when provided on behalf of a specific member. Progress notes written the same day as a care coordination service are billable. Nonbillable activities include time spent completing or reviewing claim forms for care coordination, implicit paperwork, and activities not related to a particular member. The reimbursement rate includes administrative expenses, which are therefore not billable. Transporting members, general provider recruitment, and ongoing counseling are not billable. HIV/AIDS Care Coordination and Managed Care HIV/AIDS care coordination services are self-referral services under the Hoosier Healthwise and Care Select programs. Providers serving Hoosier Healthwise members in the RBMC delivery system should contact the appropriate MCO for filing these claims. MCO contact information is included in Chapter 1. 8-188 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions HIV/AIDS care coordination claims are not subject to managed care edits; therefore, there is no requirement for a PMP’s certification code and NPI on the CMS-1500 claim form or the 837P transaction. Chiropractic Services Coverage and Billing Procedures The IHCP provides coverage for chiropractic services for members when the services are provided by a licensed chiropractor. Services such as office visits, physical medicine treatments, laboratory, X-ray, and muscle testing are available to all IHCP members pursuant to restrictions outlined in the individual’s benefit package when necessitated by a condition-related diagnosis. The following sections outline additional coverage, billing, and PA information for chiropractic services. Package C The IHCP provides reimbursement for covered services provided by a licensed chiropractor when rendered within the scope of the practice. Office visits are limited to five visits and 14 therapeutic physical medicine treatments per member, per calendar year. Additional treatments may be covered if the provider obtains PA based on medical necessity. Package B The IHCP provides reimbursement for medically necessary pregnancy-related chiropractic services. Providers must submit claims for Package B members with one of the diagnosis codes listed in Table 8.44 as the primary diagnosis, followed by the appropriate chiropractic diagnosis code and chiropractic procedure code. Table 8.44 – ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Codes for Package B for Chiropractic Services Diagnosis Code Description 646.93 Unspecified complication of pregnancy – antepartum condition or complication 648.73 Bone and joint disorders of the back, pelvis, and lower limbs – antepartum condition or complication 648.93 Other current conditions classified elsewhere – antepartum condition or complication IHCP Members The IHCP limits reimbursement to a total of 50 office visits and spinal manipulation or physical medicine treatments per member per calendar year. As part of this limitation, the IHCP reimburses for no more than five office visits out of the total 50 treatment or office visits per member per calendar year. Reimbursement is not available for durable medical equipment (DME) provided by chiropractors. Additionally, reimbursement is not available for the following types of extended or comprehensive office visits: • New patient detailed • New patient comprehensive • Established patient detailed • Established patient comprehensive Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-189 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions The IHCP does not cover electromyogram (EMG) testing for chiropractors. A visit code is reportable on the same date as a manipulative treatment only if the visit constitutes a significant, separately identifiable E/M service. The visit code is then billed with the 25 modifier. The service must be above and beyond the usual and preservice and postservice work associated with a manipulation service. Medical record documentation supporting the need for an office visit, in addition to the manipulation treatment, must be maintained by the provider and is subject to postpayment review. When requested, chiropractors must provide the actual X-ray films previously taken at no cost to IHCP members. The IHCP does not reimburse for additional X-rays that could be necessitated by the failure of a practitioner to forward X-rays or related documentation to a chiropractic provider when requested. Chiropractors are entitled to receive X-rays from other providers at no charge to the member upon the member’s written request to the other providers and upon reasonable notice. The IHCP limits claim payment for chiropractic practitioners (specialty 150) to the CPT procedure codes and ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes as listed in the following tables. Tables 8.45 through 8.50 identify the procedure codes that chiropractors should bill to the IHCP.

management training services. The IHCP defines self-care management training as services provided in accordance with the terms and provisions of IC 27-814.5(6). The IHCP intends these services to enable the patient, or enhance the patient’s ability to properly manage a diabetic condition, thereby optimizing the therapeutic regimen. The following are examples of diabetes self-care management training activities: • Nutrition • Medication counseling • Blood glucose self-monitoring • Insulin injection • Foot, skin, and dental care The IHCP limits coverage to eight units per member, per rolling calendar year. Providers can prior authorize additional units. One unit is equal to 30 minutes. The IHCP covers diabetes self-management training services for Package C members. Note: For RBMC members, send claims to the appropriate MCO. Practitioners Eligible to Provide Services Healthcare practitioners, licensed, registered, or certified under applicable Indiana law, with specialized training in the management of diabetes that meets community standards, must provide the diabetes self-care management training services. Practitioners eligible to provide diabetes self-management training services, but not currently enrolled as IHCP providers, can obtain additional information in Chapter 4. Eligible practitioners, such as pharmacists, who work for or own IHCP-enrolled pharmacies should bill for services rendered through Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-199 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions the enrolled entity where services are provided. MCO contact information is included in Chapter 1, Section 2. The following are examples of IHCP practitioners who may enroll and bill for direct care services or supervision of services: • Audiologists • Chiropractors • Dentists • Hearing aid dealers • Nurses • Occupational therapists • Optometrists • Pharmacists • Physical therapists • Physicians • Respiratory therapists • Speech and language pathologists The following are examples of IHCP practitioners who may not enroll in the IHCP. Practitioners in this list must bill under the supervising practitioner’s IHCP NPI: • Athletic trainers • Dietitians • Environmental health specialists • Health facility administrators • Marriage and family therapists • Physician assistants • Psychologists • Social workers Providers are not entitled to reimbursement for any services provided to the general public at no charge. Adherence to this program parameter is closely monitored by the Surveillance Utilization Review (SUR) Department. Procedure Codes and Units of Service Providers must bill for the service only on the CMS-1500 or 837P transaction using procedure code G0108 – Diabetes outpatient self-management training services, indiv, or G0109 – Diabetes selfmanagement training service, group session. One unit of G0108 or G0109 is equal to 30 minutes of service. Providers should not round up to the next unit. Instead, providers should accumulate billable time equivalent to whole units and then bill. Limit service to eight units per member, or the equivalent of four hours, per rolling calendar year, applicable under any of the following circumstances: • Receipt of a diagnosis of diabetes • Receipt of a diagnosis that represents a significant change in the member’s symptoms or condition • Re-education or refresher training 8-200 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Providers can request authorization for additional units through the standard PA process. The IHCP reviews the documentation for additional requested units of service for evidence of medical necessity. Providers should bill the usual and customary charge for the units of service rendered. Billing and rendering practitioners should maintain sufficient documentation of the respective functions to substantiate the medical necessity of the service rendered and the provision of the service itself. This requirement is in accordance with existing policies and regulations. Physicians and podiatrists ordering the service should maintain documentation in the usual manner. Examples of documentation that the provider of the service should maintain include (but are not limited to) written orders for the service, date rendering the service, amount of time used for the training session, general content of the training session, units of service billed, charge amount, pertinent patient history and clinical data, and practitioner notes from the training sessions. Diabetic Test Strips The IHCP accepts Medicare crossover claims for diabetic test strip procedure codes with dates of service that span 90 days. Providers can use Web interChange to submit these claims electronically. The affected procedure codes and descriptions are listed in Table 8.51.

For all DME or HME, a physician must make the order for the equipment or supply in writing. The written order must be maintained on file for retrospective review purposes. For items that the OMPP has identified as requiring frequent or substantial servicing, reimbursement is limited to rentals only and does not reimburse for a purchase of the item. For Package C, the IHCP covers medical supplies and equipment, including prosthetic devices, implants, and hearing aids, when medically necessary. The benefit limit 407 IAC 3-6-1 on DME and HME for Package C members is a maximum benefit of $2,000 per year, or $5,000 per lifetime, for DME. This does not include eyeglasses. Members can purchase or rent the equipment, depending on which is more cost-efficient. The IHCP does not reimburse claims for medical supplies, nonmedical supplies, and routine DME or HME items for members residing in long-term care facilities. Long-term care facilities include nursing facilities, intermediate care facilities for the mentally retarded (ICFs/MR), and community residential facilities for the developmentally disabled (CRFs/DD). The IHCP policy stipulates that providers cannot bill the IHCP directly for medical supplies, nonmedical supplies, or routine DME or HME items provided to an IHCP member residing in a long-term care facility. The facility per diem rate includes the costs for these services, and the medical supplier or DME or HME company should bill the long-term care facility directly for such services. For further information, refer to 405 IAC 5-13-3 and 405 IAC 5-31-4. Providers that use HCPCS codes for medical supplies, nonmedical supplies, or routine DME items billed to the IHCP for members residing in long-term care facilities, receive a denial with explanation of benefit (EOB) code 2034 – Medical and nonmedical supplies and routine DME items are covered in the per diem rate paid to the long term care facility and may not be billed separately to the IHCP. The IHCP reimburses for DME or HME equipment, services, and supplies within one of the classifications listed in Table 8.53. Table 8.53 – DME/HME Classification Codes DME Classification Number 8-204 DME Classification Name 1 Capped rental items 2 Inexpensive or other routinely purchased items 3 Items requiring frequent or substantial servicing 4 Customized items 5 Prosthetic and orthotic devices 6 Oxygen and oxygen equipment Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Manually Priced Supplies, DME, and HME For DME or HME services, equipment, and supplies that providers bill with a nonspecific HCPCS code with a description, such as unspecified, unclassified, or miscellaneous, the IHCP bases reimbursement on manual pricing. An example of a manually priced HCPCS code is E1399 – durable medical equipment – miscellaneous. Payment for manually priced HCPCS codes, related to DME or HME services, is specific to the item being billed. Providers must submit documentation supporting the cost of the item, including a listing of all materials. The IHCP determines reimbursement using the following guidelines: • If the provider submits an itemized sales invoice from the manufacturer listing all materials or supplies purchased and showing the price paid for individual items, the IHCP reimburses the claim at the billed amount, up to 30 percent above the invoice amount. The IHCP does not accept a manufacturer’s price list as proof of purchase price for this level of reimbursement. • If a provider submits a retail price list from the manufacturer, the IHCP reimburses the claim at 90 percent of the price on the manufacturer’s retail price list, not to exceed the billed amount. • If the provider submits a copy of the provider’s own retail price list or an invoice from the provider’s own company, which indicates the price that a provider charges the general public for products or supplies, the IHCP reimburses the claim at 90 percent of the invoice or price list, not to exceed the billed amount. • Providers must identify on each attachment which service corresponds to the procedure code and amount identified on the claim form. • Invoices must be within one year from the date of service (DOS). Providers must not bill more than their usual and customary charge for any item. When providers request prior authorization for miscellaneous services, they must include an itemized list of materials in the PA request. For any item providers identify under a miscellaneous code on the PA form, they must identify a specific number of units for billing purposes and claim adjudication. Repair and Replacement Provisions related to the repair of purchased DME or HME and replacement of DME or HME items are outlined in 405 IAC 5-19-4 and 405 IAC 5-19-5. The rules are summarized as follows: • Repair of purchased DME/HME may require PA based on the HCPCS codes billed. • The IHCP does not pay for repair of equipment still under warranty. The IHCP does not authorize payment for repair necessitated by member misuse or abuse, whether intentional or unintentional. The provider must obtain documentation from the member stating the member understands the service is noncovered by IHCP, and the member will assume responsibility for the repairs. • Repairs for rental equipment are the responsibility of the rental provider. • The IHCP does not cover payment for maintenance charges of properly functioning equipment. • Repair costs for DME or HME included in a long-term care (LTC) facility’s per diem rate are not separately reimbursable. • The IHCP does not authorize replacement of large DME or HME items more than once every five years per member. The IHCP allows more frequent replacement only if there is a change in the Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-205 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions member’s medical needs, documented in writing, significant enough to warrant a different type of equipment. Procedure code K0739 – Repair or nonroutine service for durable medical equipment other than oxygen equipment requiring the skill of a technician, labor component, per 15 minutes is a replacement code for E1340 – Repair or nonroutine service for durable medical equipment requiring the skill of a technician, labor component, per 15 minutes and is covered effective January 1, 2010. Rental Versus Purchase Providers should base their decision to rent or purchase DME or HME on the least expensive option available for the anticipated period of need. DME or HME items purchased with IHCP funds become the property of the OMPP. Providers must notify the local county office of the Division of Family Resources (DFR) to make arrangements to return the equipment when a member no longer needs the equipment. Prior Authorization Items including, but not limited to, the following are examples of DME and HME that require prior authorization when medically necessary: • Hospital beds • Wheelchairs • Ventilators • Heated and nonheated humidifiers • Oxygen • Patient lifts • Standers • Wheelchair seat cushions • Power seating systems The IHCP requires PA for all DME and HME rented or purchased with IHCP funds, as set forth in 405 IAC 5-19-6, except for oxygen and supplies and equipment for delivery to nursing facility (NF) residents, included in the per diem. This requirement excludes parenteral infusion pumps when used in conjunction with parenteral hyperalimentation, including central venous catheters, codes B9004 and B9006. Table 8.54 lists the HCPCS codes for DME and HME that do not require PA. Note: For RBMC members, contact the appropriate MCO for PA.

The rendering provider, as well as the physician ordering the services or the durable medical equipment, must keep appropriate documentation on file. The above procedures are intended to streamline the PA process. The SUR Department evaluates provider profiles and performs retrospective reviews of services no longer requiring PA. Notes: All services provided to 590 Program members with a billed amount greater than $500 per procedure require PA. For residents of nursing facilities and ICFs/MR, the IHCP reimburses the items in Table 8.54 only through the approved per diem rate for the facility. Administrative staff of the facilities should be aware that these changes to the PA requirements do not affect the reimbursement rule that includes supplies and DME/HME items in the provider’s per diem rate. Under no circumstances should the facility provider or any other provider bill separately for DME/HME and supply items that are included in the per diem. Customized Items The IHCP defines custom equipment as equipment uniquely constructed or substantially modified to meet the specific needs of an individual patient. For example, the IHCP would consider a customized molded seating system, billed using code E1399, as a customized item. Due to the unique aspects, providers cannot group these items with similar items for purposes of payment. Suppliers must submit documentation of the costs of the item, including the cost of labor and types of materials used in customizing the item. They must attach a materials and labor itemization and a manufacturer’s cost invoice to the claim when submitted for payment. The IHCP reviews each item on the invoice when calculating the reimbursement amount for all customized items. The IHCP reimburses the materials needed for repair at 30 percent above the manufacturer’s cost to the provider. The IHCP considers the following factors when reviewing PA requests for customized equipment: • The costs and changes for construction of the item can vary widely from one patient to another. Some items, while individually constructed, may have standard costs and charges. Providers can most often identify and bill these items using existing HCPCS codes, and the items are not considered custom equipment. • A wheelchair assembled by a supplier or ordered from a manufacturer that makes available special features, modifications, or components cannot be considered a customized wheelchair. The HCPCS contains many different codes to categorize wheelchairs. The IHCP may make additional Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-209 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions payment for modifications such as attachments to convert a wheelchair to a one-arm drive, brake extensions, wheelchair hand rims, and antitipping devices. Capped Rental Items The IHCP limits certain procedure codes to 15 months of continuous rental. The IHCP defines continuous rental as rental without interruption for a period of more than 60 days. A change in provider does not cause an interruption in the rental period. Providers should bill DME and HME rentals on the CMS-1500 or 837P transaction. The IHCP handles claims submitted for rental of DME and HME in the following manner: • The allowed charge is the lower of the IHCP rental fee schedule amount or the actual submitted charge. • The IHCP pays claims until the number of rental payments made to date reaches the capped rental number of 15 months. • The IHCP evaluates requests for approval of DME/HME capped rental items for documentation of long-term need. In long-term situations, the IHCP may make a decision to purchase the item. • The procedure codes listed in Table 8.55 are subject to the 15-month capped rental period. The use of a piece of equipment during a rental period may be interrupted; however, if the patient resumes use of the equipment within 60 days of the last payment, the original 15-month period remains active. If the interruption period exceeds the 60-day period, and the interruption reasons are justified, providers must submit a new PA request to begin a new 15-month rental period. The supplier must document the reason for the greater-than-60-day break in the rental period on the Indiana Prior Review and Authorization Request form. Justification for a break in the rental period more than 60 days may include the following: • Change in medical necessity • Hospitalization • Nursing facility stay A physician must provide justification. Unless the IHCP receives a new PA requesting a new rental period, the original 15-month period remains active. A change in the provider does not result in a new 15-month rental period. If a member becomes inactive for a period of more than 60 days, the IHCP requires a new PA to resume services. Table 8.55 lists the procedure codes that are subject to the 15-month capped rental period.

The IHCP denies claims submitted using these procedure codes with rental in excess of 15 months. Capped rental items are also subject to replacement or servicing when certain criteria are met. The IHCP does not authorize replacement of capped rental items more often than once every five years per member, unless there is a change in the member’s medical needs, documented in writing, significant enough to warrant a different type of equipment. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-211 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions As indicated above, the IHCP makes rental payments through the 15th month. At the end of the 15month rental period, the IHCP considers the DME/HME equipment purchased, and in accordance with 405 IAC 5-19-8, the equipment becomes the property of the OMPP. During the capped rental period, the equipment supplier must supply and service the item for as long as the member continues to need it at no additional charge to the IHCP. However, subject to prior approval parameters, for repairs not covered by warranty, the IHCP does not reimburse more frequently than six months after the 15th month and every six months thereafter, for as long as the equipment is medically necessary. Providers should use HCPCS code E1399 – Durable medical equipment, miscellaneous to bill DME materials that do not have a specific HCPCS code available. HME providers should bill labor costs associated with servicing and repairs with HCPCS code K0739 – Repair or nonroutine service for durable medical equipment other than oxygen equipment requiring the skill of a technician, labor component, per 15 minutes. Providers must attach a materials and labor itemization to the claim when submitting it for payment. The IHCP makes no payment for rental for any month the patient is in an institution that does not qualify as his or her home, or is outside the United States for an entire month. However, if the patient is at home on the first day of a rental month, the IHCP may make payment for the entire rental month. Similarly, if a member returns an item of rental equipment to the supplier before the end of a payment month, the IHCP may make payment for the entire rental month. Items Requiring Frequent or Substantial Servicing For items requiring frequent or substantial servicing, the IHCP reimburses providers for rental payments only, as long as the equipment is deemed medically necessary. The IHCP denies claims for the purchase of these items. As noted in 405 IAC 5-19-4, repair of rental items is the responsibility of the rental provider. Table 8.56 represents a list of equipment and supplies requiring frequent or substantial servicing that are available on a rental basis. The IHCP denies these codes if providers bill them as a purchase. This list is not all-inclusive. Table 8.56 – Procedure Codes Classified as Frequent and Substantial Servicing by the IHCP Procedure Code Description E0450 Volume ventilator, stationary or portable, with backup rate feature, used with invasive interface (such as tracheostomy tube) E0460 Negative pressure ventilator, portable or stationary E0461 Volume control ventilator, without pressure support mode; may include pressure control mode, used with noninvasive interface (such as mask) E0500 IPPB machine, all types, with built-in nebulization; manual or automatic valves; internal or external power source E0575 Nebulizer, ultrasonic, large volume E0935 Continuous passive motion exercise device for use on knee only The IHCP does not allow any provider to bill the IHCP for medical or nonmedical supplies and equipment or therapies provided to residents in LTC facilities. The IHCP rules for separate billing and reimbursement also exclude food supplements, nutritional supplements, and infant formulas. The IHCP includes all medical and nonmedical supplies, routine medical equipment, and therapies in the NF per diem rate. 8-212 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Ancillary and Therapy Billing for LTC Facility Residents Providers can bill parenteral and enteral services and therapies received by dual-eligible members (Medicare and Traditional Medicaid, as well as Care Select) to Medicare and the IHCP as crossovers, and the provider must submit these on the UB-04 claim form. Automatic External Defibrillators and Wearable Cardioverter Defibrillators The IHCP covers two types of automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) with PA for individual use. The IHCP covers the AED, E0617 – External defibrillator with integrated electrocardiogram analysis and the wearable cardioverter defibrillator (WCD), K0606 – Automatic external defibrillator, with integrated electrocardiogram analysis, garment type. The AED (E0617) is similar to a manual defibrillator, except the AED detects and analyzes heart rhythms automatically. Various manufacturers make the AED devices. Each device uses a battery pack and electrode defibrillator pads, and the initial supplies are usually included with the device. The WCD (K0606) consists of a vest-like or garment-like device worn under a patient’s clothing that holds a monitor, electrodes, a battery, and a small alarm module. The monitor is designed to automatically sense abnormal heart rhythms and deliver electrical therapy through the electrodes after alerting the patient to avoid improper defibrillation. Nonwearable components include a battery charger, a computer modem, a modem cable, a computer cable, WCDNET, and the diagnostic test. WCDNET is a secure Web-based data storage and retrieval system that allows the physician to access the patient’s electrocardiogram (ECG) data stored by the WCD monitor. The physician uses the diagnostic tester to program the WCD to identify specific heart rates and rhythms for data storage. Additional components included with the WCD are a second battery to be used when the first is charging and an extra garment for use when the first is cleaned. The AED (E0617) and WCD (K0606) are indicated for members who normally are candidates for an implanted cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), but for whom an ICD is contraindicated or needs to be removed. Members use these devices for an average time of approximately two to three months, although some members awaiting transplant have used the device for more than one year. The IHCP covers either an AED (E0617) or a WCD (K0606), based on the physician’s clinical assessment of the member’s medical needs. Table 8.57 lists examples of factors that providers may consider when choosing which defibrillator is most appropriate for the member. Table 8.57– Defibrillator Factors Factors for Choosing E0617 Inability to wear a WCD vest due to obesity Skin irritation from wearing electrodes 24 hours per day Limited or lack of mobility Availability of an assistant to operate the AED Factors for Choosing K0606 Lack of assistant who can operate an AED Frequency that the member is away from home Mobility of the member Frequently unstable heart rhythms Tables 8.58 and 8.59 list the HCPCS code and description for the WCD, AED, and accessories. The WCD and the AED are capped rental items. K0607 and K0608 are inexpensive and routinely purchased items. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-213 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Table 8.58 – Wearable Cardioverter Defibrillator HCPCS Code K0607* Description Automatic external defibrillator with integrated electrocardiogram analysis, garment type Replacement battery for AED, garment type only K0608 Replacement garment for use with AED garment type only, each K0609* Replacement electrodes for use with AED, garment type only K0606 *Note: These HCPCS codes are used for the automatic external defibrillator and wearable cardioverter defibrillator.

Prior Authorization Criteria for Accessories K0607 – K0609 The IHCP bases PA criteria for accessories on the estimated average life expectancies of the accessories. AED (E0617) and WCD (K0606) use the accessories replacement batteries, K0607, and replacement electrodes, K0609. K0607 – Replacement Battery 1. The member must currently be renting or have purchased an AED (E0617) or WCD (K0606 with integrated electrocardiogram analysis, garment type). 2. The battery being replaced must be at least 11 months old or completely discharged. K0608 – Replacement Garment (only for WCD) 1. The member must currently be renting or have purchased a WCD with integrated electrocardiogram analysis, garment type (K0606). 2. The garment must be damaged or worn beyond repair and have been in use at least five months. K0609 – Replacement Electrodes 1. The member must currently be renting or have purchased an AED (E0617) or the WCD with integrated electrocardiogram analysis, garment type (K0606). 2. The electrodes being replaced must have been used for at least 22 months, or the provider must prove that the equipment is broken or damaged beyond repair. 8-214 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Casting Supplies The IHCP allows reimbursement for cast supplies in conjunction with the initial fracture care service. The IHCP also allows cast supplies when billed in conjunction with the application of a cast, strap, or splint, when billing CPT codes 29000 through 29799, when applied initially, without restorative fracture care, or when applied as a replacement when restorative care has been previously provided. When the application of a cast, strap, or splint is an initial service, providers can bill CPT code 99070 – supplies and materials in combination with the appropriate casting CPT code 29000 through 29799, and the appropriate CPT E/M code. Continuous Passive Motion – Continuous Passive Motion Device The following information outlines the billing parameters for a continuous passive motion (CPM) device: • PA is not required. • Units of service: One unit of service equals one day. For CPM devices, the billing code is HCPCS code E0935, and providers must append the modifier RR. Cranial Remolding Orthosis The IHCP considers HCPCS code S1040 for cranial remolding orthosis to be medically necessary for members aged 4 to 24 months with benign positional plagiocephaly, plagiocephaly with torticollis, brachycephaly, dolichocephaly, and scaphocephaly due to conditions such as in utero or intra partum molding, premature or multiple births, and supine positioning. A pediatrician, general surgeon with a specialty in pediatrics, pediatric surgeon, craniofacial surgeon, or craniofacial anomalies team member must sign the prescription for the cranial remolding orthosis. The prescribing physician must document the medical necessity and prior authorization criteria in the patient’s chart. The prescribing physician must sign the prior authorization form, but the prescribing physician or DME or HME supplier may also submit it. Providers must meet the following prior authorization criteria for the cranial remolding orthosis to be considered for approval for IHCP members between 4 months and 24 months of age: • Providers must submit documentation that shows the member received a minimum of a two-month trial of aggressive repositioning and stretching exercises recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and has failed to improve. Exercise should include at least four of the following activities: - Alternating back and side sleeping - Supervising “tummy time” - Rearranging the crib relative to the primary light source - Limiting time spent in a supine position - Limiting time in strollers, carriers, and swings - Rotating activity - Exercising neck motion The member must meet one of the following criteria: • Moderate to severe positional plagiocephaly, with or without torticollis, documented by an anthropometric asymmetry greater than 6 mm in the measurement of the cranial base, cranial vault, or orbitotragial depth Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-215 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions • Brachycephaly documented by a cephalic index 2 standard deviations above or below the mean (approximately 78 percent) • Scaphocephy or dolichochaly in premature or breech infants with a cephalic index significantly less than 78 percent • Further correction or asymmetry for members after surgical treatment of craniosynostosis, considered on a case-by-case basis • Moderate to severe residual plagiocephaly after surgical correction of plagiocephaly - The pediatric neurosurgeon or craniofacial surgeon who performed the corrective procedure must provide documentation of medical necessity. The IHCP considers treatment for approval on a case-by-case basis for members aged 12 months to 24 months with severe plagiocephaly and who are considered to have a reasonable likelihood of continued skull growth. A pediatric neurosurgeon, craniofacial surgeon, or craniofacial anomalies team member must provide documentation of medical necessity. The member must have documented trial of repositioning and stretching exercises as described in the first criteria to be considered for approval. The following are contraindications to receiving cranial remolding orthosis: • Members older than 24 months old • Unmanaged hydrocephalus • Craniosynostosis Home Infusion – Parenteral and Enteral Therapy Services The billing procedures listed in this section apply to parenteral and enteral therapy when provided in a member’s home. Enteral therapy may include enteral feeding within or by way of the intestine, or enteral tube feeding that includes the provision of nutritional requirements through a tube into the stomach or small intestine. Parenteral therapy includes any route other than the alimentary canal such as intravenous, subcutaneous, intramuscular, or mucosal, and total parenteral nutrition (TPN). The following three provider types may bill for these services: • HME and DME medical supply dealers • Home health agencies • Pharmacies Providers must bill separately for the components for home infusion and enteral therapy. Pharmacies must bill for compounded prescriptions or any drugs used in parenteral therapy on the appropriate Compound Prescription Claim Form or National Council for Prescription Drug Programs (NCPDP) Pharmacy Drug Claim Form or via the NCPDP 5.1 transaction using the appropriate National Drug Code(s) (NDC). HME providers bill all supplies and formulas used for home infusion and enteral therapy on the CMS-1500 claim form or 837P transaction using the appropriate HCPCS codes. Home health agencies bill services provided by an RN, LPN, or home health aide on a UB-04 claim form or 837I transaction using the appropriate HCPCS codes for services provided. Providers must bill the IHCP for such services using HCPCS codes billed on the CMS-1500 claim form. Providers enrolled as multiple provider types, such as pharmacy, DME, HME, and home health agencies, can bill all three components using the proper billing forms and appropriate codes. A home health agency (HHA) that is dually enrolled as a pharmacy provider must submit all compound drugs and any drugs used in parenteral therapy on a drug claim form or via the NCPDP 5.1 transaction using the appropriate NDC. 8-216 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Note: When an HHA that is dually enrolled as a pharmacy bills claims for parenteral therapy containing drugs on the CMS-1500 or the 837P transaction, the IHCP may subject those claims to postpayment audit and recoupment. The IHCP does not routinely use HCPCS S codes when other national codes are available for the same services. The IHCP does not reimburse HCPCS S codes for home infusion therapy and enteral therapy, with the exception of S9349 – Home tocolytic infusion therapy. Providers must separately bill the appropriate national codes, using the proper billing format, to receive reimbursement for services described in HCPCS S codes for home therapy, including home infusion and enteral therapy. Home Infusion – Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition Pumps Parenteral and enteral pumps (PEN) are not in the capped rental fee schedule category; however, the payment policies are similar. The IHCP makes no more than 15 monthly rental payments, just as with the capped rental. At the end of the 15-month rental period, the pump becomes the property of the IHCP. If there is medical necessity for rental of the pump past the 15-month rental limit, the supplier is entitled to periodic servicing payments. Necessary servicing of pumps may include repairs that require specialized testing equipment not available to the member or nursing home. The IHCP pays for only actual servicing. However, providers must get prior authorization for reimbursement for repair or servicing not covered by warranty. When requesting PA for repair services, providers must include an itemized list of materials and labor with the PA request. Providers must attach a materials and labor itemization plus a manufacturer’s invoice to the claim submitted for payment. The IHCP reimburses the materials needed for repair at 30 percent above the manufacturer’s cost to the provider. For enteral pumps, the IHCP pays no more than one-half the rental payment every six months, beginning six months after the last rental payment. For parenteral pumps, the IHCP pays no more than one-half the rental payment every three months, beginning three months after the last rental payment. The supplier should keep written proof of servicing of enteral and parenteral pumps on file. PEN pumps include HCPCS codes B9000, B9002, B9004, and B9006. The IHCP requires the Certification of Medical Necessity (CMN) for all PEN pumps. Providers must submit a copy of the CMN with the initial, and each subsequent, PA request for enteral nutrition items. The IHCP does not require PA for HCPCS codes B9002 – Enteral Nutrition Infusion Pump – with Alarm and B9000 – Enteral Nutrition Infusion Pump – without Alarm. The IHCP does not require PA for the total parenteral nutrition or infusion pumps when used in conjunction with parenteral hyperalimentation, including central venous catheters. The IHCP requires PA for enteral nutrition. The IHCP requires a CMN for enteral nutrition and allows someone other than the ordering physician to complete it. However, the ordering physician must review for the accuracy of the information, sign, and date the CMN to indicate agreement. Providers should photocopy CMN forms, because the contractor does not supply this form as a routine item. Providers must submit a copy of the CMN with each PA request (including the initial request) for enteral nutrition items. After the initial PA of enteral nutrition items, the IHCP requires subsequent PA after three, nine, and 18 months of therapy to document the member’s continued need for therapy. After two years, the IHCP determines the need for further PA on a case-by-case basis. If the member does not medically require enteral nutrition services for two consecutive months, the IHCP requires a new PA, and the required extension schedule starts again.

Please report them to the IHCP with the appropriate HCPCS code on the CMS-1500 paper claim form or using the 837P electronic transaction. According to the HIPAA, only drugs and biologics may be reported on the pharmacy claim form with an NDC. The policy for billing changed effective April 3, 2003, and the IHCP discontinued coverage of nutritional supplements billed with an NDC when billed on a drug claim form. B4100 (Food Thickener, administered orally, per oz), requires prior authorization and must be billed on a CMS-1500 claim form. Humidifiers, Nonheated or Heated The IHCP covers a nonheated (E0561) or a heated (E0562) humidifier for use with a noninvasive respiratory assistive device (RAD) (E0470 an E0471) or a CPAP (E0601), when ordered by a physician, based on medical necessity, and subject to prior authorization. Providers must meet the following criteria for reimbursement: • The IHCP considers humidifiers E0561 and E0562 for use with a RAD or a CPAP for coverage only when physician documentation supports the medical necessity of the humidifier. • Documentation must indicate that the member is suffering from nosebleeds, extreme dryness of the upper airways, or other conditions that interfere with compliance or use of the RAD or a CPAP, and that the humidifier could improve this condition. 8-218 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions HCPCS codes E0561 and E0562 are single patient use devices, categorized as inexpensive and routinely purchased items available for purchase only for Traditional Medicaid members. The IHCP covers rental temporarily for crossover claims only and no longer requires a rental trial period before purchase of nonheated or heated humidifiers. Incontinence, Ostomy, and Urological Mail Order Supplies The IHCP contracted with three vendors to provide incontinence, ostomy, urological, and other supplies including diapers, underpads, ostomy bags, and gloves. The contracted vendors are listed below: • Binson’s Home Health Care Centers www.binsons.com Telephone: 1-888-217-9610 • Healthcare Products Delivery (HPD), Inc. www.hpdinc.net Telephone: 1-800-291-8011 • J&B Medical Supply Company www.jandbmedical.com Telephone: 1-866-674-5850 Effective June 1, 2008, all fee-for-service members, which include those in the Traditional Medicaid and Care Select programs, are required to obtain incontinence, ostomy, and urological supplies through mail order from one of the contracted providers. Claims for supplies from noncontracted providers received on or after June 1, 2008, are systematically denied. Members enrolled in the 590 Program, Medical Review Team (MRT), First Steps, Pre-Admission Screening and Resident Review (PASRR), Long Term Care (LTC), and RBMC programs are excluded from this policy change. Members with Medicare or third-party insurance must follow the guidelines of Medicare and/or their primary insurance plan to receive reimbursement of these products. Crossover claims and claims with a third-party payment amount indicated for these supplies are not affected by this policy change. If Medicare or the primary carrier does not cover this type of service, the claims will process following Medicaid rules as though Medicaid is primary.

IHCP members will not be restricted to purchasing the supplies listed below only through mail order from one of the three contracted vendors. Therefore, the following codes are billable by appropriate providers: • A4364 (adhesive liquid) • A4456 (adhesive remover wipes) • A4402 (lubricant) • A4450 and A4452 (tape) • A4455 (adhesive remover) • A4927 (gloves) • A5120, A5121, and A5122 (skin barrier) For members with a primary payer, the following apply: • Incontinence supplies are covered for members 3 years old or older. • A maximum of $162.50 is allowed per member per month for all incontinence supplies. • A maximum of $1,950 is allowed per member per rolling calendar year for all incontinence supplies is assigned. • Providers may only supply such services to an IHCP member in 30-day increments. Incontinence supplies for members in LTC facilities are reimbursed through the per diem rate for the facility and cannot be billed separately by the facility, a pharmacy, or other provider. Providers must work with families to provide cost-effective supplies that meet the needs of the member. 8-220 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Documentation Required for All Incontinence Supplies The IHCP requires documentation of medical necessity for all incontinence supplies. The physician should maintain documentation of the medical necessity for the supplies in the patient’s record. The supplier must maintain a signed physician’s order in the IHCP member’s record for audit purposes. The order must include a start and stop date and a detailed list of the incontinence supplies ordered. Providers must renew the physician’s order annually at minimum. For example, an order written on February 15, 2008, is effective for a maximum of 12 months through February 14, 2009. The supplier must obtain a new order to cover dates of service starting February 15, 2009, through February 14, 2010. The supplier must have a current order to initiate or continue the provision of supplies to an IHCP member. In addition to the signed physician’s order, the supplier must maintain documentation of proof of delivery. Documentation must include the date of delivery, address of delivery, and signature of the IHCP member, caregiver, or family member who received the supplies. Incontinence Supplies for Group Homes, Intermediate Care Facilities for the Mentally Retarded, and Long-Term Care Facility Residents Please note that the IHCP reimburses incontinence supplies for members residing in group homes, intermediate care facilities for the mentally retarded, and LTC facilities through the per diem rate for the facility, and the facility or any other provider cannot bill separately. Out-of-State Providers The following designated cities are exempt from the out-of-state prior authorization (PA) rules: • Danville, Illinois • Watseka, Illinois • Louisville, Kentucky • Owensboro, Kentucky • Sturgis, Michigan • Cincinnati, Ohio • Hamilton, Ohio • Harrison, Ohio • Oxford, Ohio • Chicago, Illinois* *Note: Effective January 5, 2007, the city of Chicago was added to this list. Chicago medical providers need to follow the same prior authorization rules as instate providers for all members in the Care Select and Traditional Medicaid programs. See Chapter 6 for information about the prior authorization process. This change includes all active providers with locations in the ZIP Codes of 606XX, 607XX, and 608XX. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-221 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions A4927 – Nonsterile Gloves, per 100 One unit of A4927 equals 100 gloves. Partial units of A4927 (less than 100 gloves) must be billed using the appropriate decimal indicator for the number of gloves. For example, 50 gloves would be billed as 0.50 units. Billing for more than one unit may result in an incorrect payment amount. Per IHCP guidelines, code A4927 is limited to five units per month (one unit = 100 gloves). Providers are reminded that nonsterile gloves are only reimbursable when used by the patient, family, or other nonpaid caregiver. Examples of a medical need for a nonsterile glove include, but are not limited to, the following uses: • A bowel program requiring manual evacuation • An ostomy care program • A wound care program Note: The IHCP does not separately reimburse providers for nonsterile gloves supplied for end-stage renal disease (ESRD)/dialysis services. Payment for gloves is included in the payment for dialysis services. Payment for gloves is included in the nursing facility per diem rate; therefore, gloves are not separately billable by either the nursing facility or another provider. A4930 – Gloves, Sterile, per Pair Sterile gloves are reimbursable when medically necessary using procedure code A4930 – Gloves, sterile, per pair. Sterile gloves are often included in sterile procedure kits, such as catheter insertion kits and suture removal kits. Items in these kits are not billed separately. General Guidelines Applicable to Nonsterile and Sterile Gloves Documentation of medical need is required for all gloves, nonsterile and sterile. The supplier must maintain a signed physician’s order in the patient record with a start and stop date, frequency of treatment, and type of treatment that makes the gloves medically necessary. Documentation must indicate the reason the physician ordered the gloves as part of the plan of care. Physicians must renew their orders at least every 12 months to ensure ongoing need for gloves. Providers are reminded that code A4927 should not be used for billing gloves supplied for ESRD/dialysis services. Reimbursement for these gloves is included in the payment for dialysis services. Nonsterile gloves will be reimbursed only when used by the patient, family, or other nonpaid caregiver. Providers cannot bill the IHCP for any amount that exceeds their usual and customary charge to the general public. Providers should bill single nonsterile gloves in partial units by completing form locator 24G on the CMS-1500 claim form or Service Unit Count, Data Element 380 on the 837P electronic transaction. The partial unit is billed by using the appropriate decimal indicator for the number of gloves used. For example, two gloves would be billed as 0.02; 40 gloves would be billed as 0.40. 8-222 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Orthopedic or Therapeutic Footwear With a physician’s written order, the IHCP provides reimbursement for members of all ages for the following: • Corrective features built into shoes such as heels, lifts, wedges, arch supports, and inserts • Orthopedic footwear, such as, shoes, boots, and sandals • Orthopedic shoe additions If a member currently has a brace, the IHCP covers the shoes and supportive devices if providers document continued medical necessity. The IHCP also provides coverage for therapeutic shoes for members with severe diabetic foot disease. The HCPCS codes listed in Table 8.63 are the only codes that providers can use to bill for these services. Providers should not use these codes in any other circumstances. Table 8.63 – HCPCS Codes – Therapeutic Shoes for Severe Diabetic Foot Disease A5500 A5501 A5503 A5504 A5505 A5506 A5507 A5508 A5510 A5512 A5513 The IHCP’s policy mirrors Medicare’s coverage of inserts and diabetic shoes. The IHCP allows for one of the following: • One pair of custom molded shoes (A5501) and two additional pairs of inserts (A5512 or A5513) • One pair of depth shoes (A5500) and three pairs of inserts (A5512 or A5513) The member is eligible for a total of three pairs of inserts each calendar year. A5512 has a maximum unit of six per date of service. A5513 has a maximum unit of two per date of service. If the provider dispenses inserts independently of diabetic shoes, the member must have appropriate footwear into which to place the insert. Providers should submit claims using the appropriate HCPCS codes with one unit of service for each code. If a member needs shoes and inserts, providers should submit claims using the appropriate HCPCS codes with two as the unit of service for each code. The IHCP considers payment for the certification of the need for therapeutic shoes and the prescription of the shoes to be included in the office visit or consultation payment. Providers cannot bill for encounters for the sole purpose of dispensing or fitting shoes. The IHCP makes no payment for an office visit or consultation provided on the same day as the fitting or dispensing of shoes by the same physician. Osteogenic Bone Growth Stimulators The IHCP covers osteogenic bone growth stimulators (OBGS) with prior authorization. The equipment requires thorough education to the member and his or her caregivers. OBGS are inexpensive and routinely purchased DME. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-223 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Noninvasive Stimulators – E0747 and E0748 The IHCP covers the noninvasive stimulator devices only for the following indications: • Nonunion of long bone fractures • Congenital pseudoarthroses • As an adjunct to spinal fusion surgery for patients at high risk of pseudarthrosis due to previously failed spinal fusion at the same site, or for those undergoing multiple-level fusion - A multiple-level fusion involves three or more vertebrae. Invasive or Implantable Stimulator – E0749 The IHCP covers the implantable invasive stimulator for the following indications: • Nonunion of long bone fractures • As an adjunct to spinal fusion surgery for patients at high risk of pseudarthrosis due to previously failed spinal fusion at the same site, or for those undergoing multiple-level fusion - A multiple-level fusion involves three or more vertebrae. Ultrasound Stimulator – E0760 The IHCP covers the ultrasound stimulator for the following indications: • Nonunion of a fracture documented by a minimum of two sets of radiographs obtained prior to starting treatment with the ultrasound stimulator, separated by a minimum of 90 days, each including multiple views of the fracture site, and with a written interpretation by a physician stating that there has been no clinically significant evidence of the fracture healing between two sets of radiographs • Not concurrent use with other noninvasive osteogenic devices This policy relates to nonunion fractures. The diagnosis of a nonunion fracture must meet the following criteria: • Serial radiographs must confirm that the fracture healing has ceased for three or more months prior to starting treatment with an osteogenic stimulator. • Serial radiographs must include a minimum of two sets of radiographs, each including multiple views of the fracture site separated by a minimum of 90 days. The IHCP excludes nonunions of the skull, vertebrae, and those that are tumor-related from coverage. The IHCP does not cover treatment for fresh fractures and nonunion associated with osteomyelitis. Oximetry The following information outlines the billing parameters for oximetry: • PA is not required. • Use procedure code 94762 – one unit of service equals one day for billing oximetry service on a daily basis, up to and including a maximum of eight units of service per month. • Use HCPCS code E0445 RR – one unit of service equals one month for billing oximetry service monthly, such as more than eight units per month. Purchase of an Oximetry System, E0445 NU, is 8-224 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions appropriate for an expected long-term need where the cost to purchase the system is less than the expected monthly rental charges. Oxygen and Home Oxygen Equipment Oxygen and oxygen equipment reimbursement includes the system for furnishing oxygen, the vessels that store the oxygen, the tubing and administration sets that allow the safe delivery of the oxygen, and the oxygen contents. The oxygen and oxygen equipment classification does not fall under capped rental guidelines. Medical necessity is the determining criteria. Only rented oxygen systems, HCPCS codes E0424, E0431, E0434, E0439, E1390, E1405, and E1406, are reimbursable. The IHCP includes oxygen contents HCPCS codes E0441 through E0444 in the rental allowance and reimburses them separately only when the IHCP, or another third-party payer, has purchased an oxygen system and rented or purchased only a portable oxygen system. The IHCP also includes accessories, including but not limited to cannulas, masks, and tubing, HCPCS codes A4615, A4616, A4619, A4620, A7525, and A7526, in the allowance for rented systems; and does not allow separate billing of these unless they are used with a purchased oxygen system. For all oxygen codes, one unit equals one month. Providers must indicate one month of service by including a 1 in the Units of Service field on the CMS-1500 or 837 transaction. Spare tanks of oxygen or emergency oxygen inhalators will be denied as medically unnecessary, because they are considered precautionary and not therapeutic in nature. The facility, pharmacy, or other provider cannot bill the IHCP for oxygen, oxygen equipment, and supplies for oxygen delivery for the usual care and treatment of members in LTC facilities. The IHCP reimburses for these in the facility per diem rate. The IHCP requires PA for nonstandard equipment and associated repair costs. Providers can bill separately for these. Facilities cannot require members to purchase or rent such equipment with the member’s personal funds. Prior Authorization Requirements The IHCP requires PA for all oxygen and associated equipment and supplies, including concentrators and portable oxygen equipment, for members receiving oxygen services in a home setting. The ordering physician must complete, sign, and date a CMN and submit it with the PA request for members receiving service at home. The IHCP accepts the same CMN for oxygen currently accepted by Medicare. Providers must keep the CMN or CMS 484.2 on file. Providers should use this form for initial PA, subsequent PA extensions, and changes in the prescriptions. The IHCP does not require a separate order because the order information is incorporated in the CMN. Providers should photocopy CMN forms because the contractor does not supply this form as a routine item. Note: For RBMC members, contact the appropriate MCO for PA. The IHCP requires PA renewals at least annually. Providers should submit a new PA and CMN whenever there is a change in the oxygen prescription, such as an increase or decrease in oxygen flow rate or different equipment ordered, or if there is a change in the attending physician. In addition, the IHCP may require subsequent extensions in individual cases. The IHCP uses Medicare’s coverage criteria and medical policy to determine medical necessity for prior approval. The following coverage and payment rules apply to oxygen therapy when supplied for Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-225 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions members in the home setting. The IHCP requires recertification three months after initial certification for inpatients in the following cases: • For inpatient members whose arterial PO2 was 56 mm Hg or greater or whose oxygen saturation was 89 percent or greater on the initial certification. • For inpatient members whose physician’s initial estimate of length of need for oxygen was one to three months. • If the first situation applies, repeat testing must be performed between the 61st and the 90th days of home oxygen therapy. For members for whom the IHCP does not require recertification at three months, the IHCP requires recertification at 12 months after the initial certification. The IHCP requires initial certification and three-month recertification when the initial PO2 is 56mm Hg or greater or oxygen saturation is 89 percent or greater. Documentation must include the results of a recently performed arterial blood gas (ABG) or oximetry test. The IHCP does not require retesting for recertification at 12 months, but providers must include on the form the results of the most recent ABG or oximetry test representing the patient’s chronic stable state. The form must specify whether tests were performed while on room air or on oxygen and specify the amount. The form must specify whether the patient was at rest, sleeping, or exercising when the test was performed. Coverage and Payment Rules The IHCP covers home oxygen therapy only for patients with significant hypoxemia in the chronic stable state, provided the following are met: • The attending physician has determined that the patient has a severe lung disease or hypoxiarelated symptoms that might be expected to improve with oxygen. • The patient’s blood gas levels indicate the need for oxygen therapy. • The physician has tried or considered alternative treatment measures and has deemed them clinically ineffective. Note: The IHCP accepts transcutaneous oximetry in lieu of arterial or capillary blood gases for oxygen monitoring. A physician or provider other than a DME supplier, certified to conduct such tests, must conduct the measurement of these tests. The IHCP does not extend this prohibition to tests conducted by a hospital that may also be furnishing home oxygen therapy to the patient directly or through an associated organization. The patient needs to meet the criteria in one of the following categories to receive approval of home oxygen therapy: Group I Criteria – The patient meets the criteria with any of the following: • An arterial PO2 at or below 55mm Hg or an arterial oxygen saturation at or below 88 percent, taken at rest. • The IHCP provides coverage only for nocturnal use of oxygen in the following cases: - The patient demonstrates an arterial PO2 at or below 55 mm Hg or an arterial oxygen saturation at or below 88 percent taken during sleep, and the patient demonstrates an arterial PO2 at or above 56mm Hg or an arterial oxygen saturation at or above 89 percent while awake. - The patient demonstrates a greater than normal fall in oxygen level during sleep, a decrease in arterial PO2 more than 10mm Hg, or a decrease in arterial oxygen saturation of more than 5 8-226 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions percent, associated with symptoms or signs reasonably attributable to hypoxemia, such as cor pulmonale, P pulmonale on EKG, documented pulmonary hypertension, and erythrocytosis. • The IHCP provides coverage only during exercise if the patient demonstrates an arterial PO2 at or below 55mm Hg or an arterial oxygen saturation at or below 88 percent (taken during exercise) and an arterial PO2 at or above 56mm Hg or an arterial oxygen saturation at or above 89 percent (taken during the day while at rest). In this case, the IHCP provides supplemental oxygen during exercise if it is documented that the use of oxygen improves the hypoxemia that was demonstrated during exercise when the patient was breathing room air. Group II Criteria – The patient meets the criteria when the patient demonstrates an arterial PO2 of 56 to 59mm Hg or an arterial blood oxygen saturation of 89 percent and any of the following: • Dependent edema suggesting congestive heart failure • Pulmonary hypertension or cor pulmonale, determined by measurement of pulmonary artery pressure, gated blood pool scan, echocardiogram, or P pulmonale on EKG, P wave greater than 3mm in standard leads II, III, or AVF • Erythrocythemia with a hematocrit greater than 56 percent Group III Criteria – The IHCP requires additional documentation to substantiate use of oxygen when the patient demonstrates an arterial PO2 level at or above 60mm Hg or arterial blood oxygen saturation at or above 90 percent. Providers should ensure that additional documentation appears on the PA form or an attached form, indicating the type, frequency, and severity of incidents or episodes. Examples include, but are not limited to, the following: • Apnea conditions • Bronchopulmonary dysplasia • Cerebral Palsy • Cyanotic congenital heart disease • Episodic attacks of acute and severe asthma • Intermittent cyanosis or dyspnea documented by clinical observation • Intermittent upper airway obstruction • Neuromuscular disorders extensive enough to affect pharyngeal and chest muscles and that clinically interfere with normal breathing • Severe recurrent attacks of epilepsy • Significant mental retardation with repetitive episodes of respiratory difficulties • Tracheal laryngeal malacia The IHCP may give PA to patients who fall into Group III for three, six, or 12 months, depending on the medical necessity demonstrated in the documentation provided. If not waived, the IHCP determines whether to require retesting using ABG or transcutaneous oximetry readings when and if authorization is granted. Providers must include such results, or the results of the latest ABG or oximetry readings, on the CMN form when submitted with the new PA request. Oxygen – Portable Systems The IHCP covers a portable oxygen system if the patient is mobile within the home.

The IHCP does not require prior authorization for pneumograms. The IHCP considers one pneumogram, with any number of channels, to be one unit. The IHCP does not separately reimburse for oximetry during a pneumogram because it is included in the pneumogram reimbursement. CPT code 94772 includes technical and professional components of service. Providers should use modifier TC when billing only the technical component, or modifier 26 when billing only the professional component. Table 8.66 lists billing codes and parameters for pneumograms. 8-228 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Table 8.66 – Billing Codes and Parameters – Pneumograms Procedure Code/Modifier Description 94772 Circadian respiratory pattern recording (pediatric pneumogram), 12 to 24 hour continuous recording, infant 94772 TC Technical component only 94772 26 Professional component only Prosthetic Devices The IHCP reimburses for prosthetic devices under the following conditions: • A physician, optometrist, or dentist must order all prosthetic devices in writing. • When the basic prosthesis is approved, all customizing features are exempt from PA. Glasses do not require PA. • The IHCP does not cover prosthetic devices dispensed for purely cosmetic reasons, such as contact lenses, hairpieces, or makeup. ThAIRapy Vest™ The IHCP covers the ThAIRapy Vest™ device for use only for cystic fibrosis. The ThAIRapy Vest™ is a mechanical device that uses a vest and a generator to assist in loosening bronchial secretions and clearing the airway. All requests for this DME device require PA with an appropriate clinical summary and physician prescription. The vest and generator components of the ThAIRapy Vest™ are only authorized as a purchase. The IHCP requires rental of the generator and hoses for the ThAIRapy Vest for three months prior to purchase of these components. Trend Event Monitoring and Apnea Monitors The IHCP covers trend event monitoring with an apnea monitor that has recording features. HCPCS code E0619 is billed for the actual monitor. Providers must use the appropriate CPT code for monitoring, recording, transmission, and interpretation to bill for these services. Table 8.67 shows current coding options. Providers should use HCPCS code E0618 when a member requires an apnea monitor without a recording feature.

The IHCP covers treatment of postcardiotomy cardiogenic shock when ventricular dysfunction continues after maximum medical therapy or as a means of myocardial recovery support for individuals who are unable to be weaned from cardiopulmonary bypass with maximal inotropic support and use of an intra-aortic balloon pump. The IHCP covers bridge-to-transplant for members who meet the following criteria: • The member must be at risk of imminent death from nonreversible left ventricular failure (NYHA Class III or IV). • The member has received prior authorization for a heart transplant (excluding dual eligible members). • The member is listed as a candidate for heart transplantation by a Medicare- and/or Medicaidapproved heart transplant center. • If the VAD is implanted at a different site than the Medicare- and/or Medicaid-approved transplant center, the implanting site must receive written permission from the Medicare- and/or Medicaidapproved center where the patient is listed for transplant prior to implantation of the VAD. The IHCP covers destination therapy for members who meet the following criteria: • The member must not be a candidate for a heart transplant. • The member must have chronic end-stage heart failure (NYHA Class IV) for at least 90 days, and have a life expectancy of less than two years. • The member’s Class IV heart failure symptoms must have failed to respond to optimal medical therapy for at least 60 of the last 90 days. Medical therapy must include salt restriction, diuretics, digitalis, beta-blockers, and ARBs or ACE inhibitors (if tolerated). • Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction (LVEF) must be less than 25 percent. • The member has demonstrated functional limitation with a peak oxygen consumption of less than 12ml/kg/min; or continued need for IV inotropic therapy due to symptomatic hypotension, decreasing renal function, or worsening pulmonary congestion. • The member has the appropriate body size (greater than or equal to 1.5m2) to support the Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) implantation. • VAD implantation must occur at a Medicare- or Medicaid-approved heart transplant center. A VAD is a covered service for postcardiotomy cardiogenic shock or bridge-to-transplant only if it has received approval from the FDA for the intended purpose, and only if it is used according to the FDAapproved labeling instructions for that intended purpose. A VAD is a covered service for destination therapy only if it has received approval from the FDA for destination therapy or as a bridge-totransplant, or has been implanted as part of an FDA investigational device exemption trial for one of these two indications. 8-230 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Noncovered Services • VADs are noncovered for all conditions not listed above. • Use of a non-FDA approved VAD is considered investigational and a noncovered service. • The artificial heart (for example, AbioCor, CardioWest) as a replacement heart for a diseased heart is noncovered by the IHCP. Prior Authorization VADs and their surgical implantation do not require PA. However, members who receive bridge-totransplant or destination therapy, and who can continue therapy on an outpatient basis, require accessory equipment for use with the VAD. The patient supplies and replacement equipment for the VAD require PA. Stationary Power Base and Display Module The power base is the electrical supply unit for the VAD. It provides tethered functioning of the VAD by powering the VAD and simultaneously recharging the batteries. The display module provides pump functioning information for the physician to evaluate patient status. The hospital or DME provider purchases the power base as a capital expense and loans it to the member. The hospital or DME provider is reimbursed a rental payment while the equipment is used on an outpatient basis by the member. The physician must submit a PA request for HCPCS code L9900 – Orthotic and prosthetic supply, accessory, and/or service component of another HCPCS L code and modifier RR – Rental use. Patient Supplies and Replacement Equipment PA is required for patient supplies and replacement equipment. Patient supplies and replacement equipment include the system controller, rechargeable batteries, travel case, shower kit, and other miscellaneous supplies. The hospital or DME provider must supply the replacement parts. IHCP-covered services for implantation of VADs for postcardiotomy cardiogenic shock, bridge-totransplant, and destination therapy are subject to postpayment review. Providers must maintain documentation in the member’s medical record that indicates that all criteria listed above have been met for implantation of a VAD. If all the criteria for implantation are not satisfied, reimbursement of funds may be recouped, including surgical fees, professional fees, and equipment costs. Billing Instructions for Outpatient Equipment Utilizing the CMS-1500 Claim Form 1. PA must be obtained for VAD accessory equipment for outpatient therapy. 2. The description of the power unit and display module should be entered on a detail line with HCPCS code L9900, placed in locator 24d of the CMS-1500 claim form. The total rental price may not exceed the purchase price. 3. The description of the replacement supplies should be placed on a second detail line with the appropriate HCPCS code in locator 24d of the CMS-1500 claim form. 4. An invoice for each detail must accompany the CMS-1500 claim form when submitted. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-231 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Wheelchairs – Motorized Providers should determine which of the codes is the most appropriate to use, based on the Wheelchair Product Classification List published by Medicare’s Statistical Analysis Durable Medical Equipment Regional Carrier (SADMERC). This listing itemizes the manufacturers and specific power wheelchair models and details the exact HCPCS code associated with each product and model type. Providers cannot bill separately for programmable electronic systems that come standard on the specific motorized or power wheelchair model provided because the total reimbursement for the motorized or power wheelchair with programmable electronics (K0011) is all-inclusive under that code. Effective for claims with dates of service July 18, 2003, or after, the IHCP allows separate reimbursement only for programmable electronic system upgrades, determined to be medically necessary for the patient, made on motorized/power wheelchair bases. Any such upgrades must have PA, and providers must bill them under HCPCS code K0108 with a KA modifier. Providers must bill the wheelchair base with HCPCS code K0014. For claims submission, providers must attach a cost invoice or retail price invoice to document the cost or price of the wheelchair base and the upgraded electronic system. The IHCP allows separate reimbursement only if an electronic system is an upgrade to a system that comes standard on a specific wheelchair model. Certain patients may need adaptive switch controls such as a sip and puff, or patients with degenerative diseases whose prognosis could worsen in the future may need additional drive controls and programming not available on the basic one-drive electronic system. In this instance, a physiatrist must confirm the medical necessity to support the need of the programmable electronic system upgrade and the physician must document it in the patient record, as well as on a completed IHCP medical clearance form for motorized/power wheelchairs. Documentation requirements for motorized or power wheelchairs are described in more detail in Chapter 6 of this manual. The IHCP covers motorized wheelchairs only when the member is enrolled in a school, sheltered workshop, or work setting, or if the member is left alone for a significant period of time. Providers must document that the member can safely operate the vehicle and that the member does not have the upper extremity function necessary to operate a manual wheelchair. A physical medicine and rehabilitation practitioner (physiatrist) must complete a medical clearance form for the IHCP to consider requests for power wheelchairs or similar motorized equipment for approval. A physiatrist must review the medical necessity documentation and sign the medical clearance forms. The IHCP does not require that the member initially be seen by the physiatrist, but only that the physiatrist reviews the documentation supporting the request for a motorized or power wheelchair. However, a physiatrist must review the medical necessity form, and approve and sign the medical clearance form prior to submitting the form to the appropriate MCO or CMO PA Department. The IHCP requires a member to see the physiatrist only if the physiatrist requests to see the member after a review of the documentation. Additionally, the IHCP does not require that the physiatrist be located within a certain distance of the physician or the member. If the physiatrist requests to see the member after reviewing the documentation, the member is then required to travel to visit the physiatrist. Wheelchairs – Nonmotorized The IHCP covers purchase of a nonmotorized wheelchair or motorized wheelchair subject to prior authorization review. Requests for nonmotorized wheelchairs or similar motorized vehicles require that the provider submits a medical clearance with the PA request before the IHCP reviews the request. The IHCP includes standard nonmotorized wheelchairs in the per diem rate, for LTC facilities, per 405 IAC 5-13-3-4 and 405 IAC 5-13-3-7. Requests should be submitted to the appropriate MCO for approval only if there is a medical necessity for the custom wheelchair. For example, if the member’s diagnosis requires sitting in a particular upright position due to a breathing difficulty, the member may 8-232 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions need a customized wheelchair. Providers must follow the normal PA process using IHCP PA and medical clearance forms. LTC members receive 24-hour care in a nursing facility. This care includes safety, propulsion, evaluation of the member for skin breakdown, and an active plan of care to prevent and treat decubitus ulcers. Therefore, providers should not request custom wheelchairs for the sole purpose of providing safety, preventing decubitus ulcers, allowing self-propulsion, or providing restraint. Wheelchair – Power Seating The IHCP has determined HCPCS codes E1002, E1003, E1004, E1005, E1006, E1007, and E1008 for power seating systems; E1009 and E1010 for power-elevating leg rests; and E2310 and E2311 for electric connectors to be medically necessary items. The IHCP covers these HCPCS codes as inexpensive and routinely purchased items for rental or purchase with prior authorization. Wheelchair – Seat Cushions The IHCP deleted the HCPCS K codes K0650-K0658 on December 31, 2004, and crosswalked them to HCPCS codes E2601-E2610. The HCPCS E codes became nonreimbursable after September 30, 2004. For dates of service on or after September 1, 2006, the following codes are reimbursable for adjustable seat cushions: • K0734 – Skin protection wheelchair seat cushion, adjustable, width less than 22 inches, any depth • K0735 – Skin protection wheelchair seat cushion, adjustable, width 22 inches or greater, any depth • K0736 – Skin protection and positioning wheelchair seat cushion, adjustable, width less than 22 inches, any depth • K0737 – Skin protection and positioning wheelchair seat cushion, adjustable, width 22 inches or greater, any depth Adjustable cushions are purchase-only items. Providers must attach the NU modifier when billing adjustable seat cushions. The adjustable cushions do not have to be listed on the Statistical Analysis Durable Medical Equipment Regional Carrier (SADMERC) classification list to be reimbursed by the IHCP. Wheelchair Accessories Providers must use HCPCS code E1028 – Wheelchair accessory, manual swingaway, retractable or removable mounting hardware for joystick, other control interface or positioning accessory, for PA and billing. The IHCP denies requests for approval of the universal headrest plate using HCPCS code E1399 – Durable medical equipment, miscellaneous for appropriate coding. Providers should submit their usual and customary charge using HCPCS code E1028. Reimbursement of the universal headrest plates are subject to the following PA criteria: • The IHCP covers universal headrest plates when the initial headrest ordered for a new wheelchair does not meet the member’s needs upon the first or subsequent fittings. On the PA request, the provider must document the brand name and model of the original headrest, and include an explanation of why the headrest did not meet the member’s needs. In addition, the provider must indicate the brand name and model of the subsequent headrest that will be used on the wheelchair. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-233 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions • The IHCP covers universal headrest plates for a used wheelchair if the member’s condition changes, and the wheelchair back is not predrilled for the headrest. The provider must provide documentation of the medical necessity for the headrest. • The IHCP covers replacement universal headrest plates with documentation of an explanation for the replacement (for example, the plate is damaged due to high tone or spasticity of the patient). The IHCP does not cover universal headrest plates for the initial headrest ordered for use on a new wheelchair. The wheelchair back should be predrilled to accommodate the headrest initially ordered with the wheelchair. Documentation Required for Medical Supplies and Equipment All medical supplies and equipment require a written order by a physician, optometrist, or dentist. According to the Indiana Administrative Code (IAC) citation 405 IAC 5-19-1, “medical supplies shall be for a specific medical purpose, not incidental or general purpose usage.” Verbal orders, communicated by the prescriber to the supplier, are permitted when appropriately documented; however, verbal orders must be followed up with written orders. Suppliers must maintain the written physician’s order to support medical necessity during postpayment review. The IHCP has identified instances when medical supplies were dispensed in excess of medically reasonable and necessary amounts. This information serves to clarify the IHCP standards for prescribing and dispensing medical supplies, including but not limited to items such as surgical dressings, catheters, and ostomy bags. This information does not eliminate any other IHCP requirements for DME and medical supplies at the time services are rendered. Prescribers of DME, HME, and Medical Supplies Physicians must be aware that their signature on an order for DME, HME, and medical supplies authorizes those items to be dispensed to the patient. When writing an order for such items, the physician must consider the following questions: • Are specific instructions, such as frequency of use, directions for use, duration of need, and so forth, listed on the order? • Is the quantity authorized by the physician medically reasonable and necessary for the patient’s medical condition? The prescriber is also responsible for maintaining documentation in the member’s medical record that supports the medical necessity of specific DME, HME, and medical supplies prescribed. To ensure that the appropriate quantity and type of item are dispensed, it is especially important that the written order be detailed. Providing a detailed written order does not eliminate the need for other IHCP requirements in effect at the time services are rendered. The written order for DME, HME, and medical supplies should include, at a minimum, the following information, when applicable: • Patient’s name • Date ordered • Physician’s signature • Area of body for use (for items that may be appropriate for multiple sites) • Type and size of the product • Quantity intended for use • Frequency of use (for example, change dressing three times per day) • Anticipated duration of need 8-234 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions • Indication of refill authorization and the number of refills - As needed or PRN (when necessary), refill authorization must be medically necessary and reasonable. - The need for long-term use must be documented in the patient’s medical record. Note: Orders and physician signatures may be verified retrospectively by the OMPP or the designated contractor. Suppliers of DME, HME, and Medical Supplies Suppliers of DME, HME, and medical supplies must maintain the prescriber’s written order in the member’s medical record. Suppliers are responsible for ensuring that the written order contains the necessary information to complete the order. If the physician’s order lacks information necessary to accurately dispense the appropriate, specific DME, HME, and medical supplies, including type or quantity, the supplier must contact the physician’s office for written clarification. Suppliers must maintain the written physician’s order to support medical necessity during postpayment review. Note: The IHCP requires that Medicaid providers maintain medical records for a period of seven years, per 405 IAC 1-5-1. Services may be subject to recoupment if the physician orders are modified after the service is rendered or if orders are obtained after the provision of service. Emergency Department Physicians Coverage and Billing Procedures The IHCP provides coverage to emergency department physicians who render emergency services to IHCP eligible members. This section provides additional information about billing procedures for emergency department physicians. IC 12-15-15-2.5 (P.L. 153-1995) addresses reimbursement of emergency department physicians. In accordance with this, Care Select members no longer require PMP authorization for federally required medical screening examinations performed by a physician in the emergency department of a hospital. Providers must bill one of the CPT codes listed in Table 8.68, reflecting the appropriate level of screening exam, on a CMS-1500 or 837P transaction. Table 8.68 – CPT Codes – Appropriate Level of Screening Exam CPT Codes 99281 99282 99283 Definitions Emergency department visit – Level 1 Emergency department visit – Level 2 Emergency department visit – Level 3 For related services provided to Care Select members such as facility charge, lab, and X-ray that do not have an emergency diagnosis and emergency indicator on the claim, the IHCP may suspend the claim for review to determine whether the prudent layperson standard has been met if the claim does not contain the PMP authorization. The authorization consists of the PMP NPI and the two-digit Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-235 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions certification code. If the IHCP review determines that the prudent layperson standard has not been met, the IHCP will deny the claim. Note: For members enrolled in the RBMC delivery system, providers must contact the member’s MCO for more specific guidelines. Evaluation and Management Services Coverage and Billing Procedures The purpose of this section of the billing instructions chapter is to provide the most current policy, billing criteria, and reimbursement information for submitting claims for Evaluation and Management (E/M) services. The IHCP offers reimbursement for office visits limited to a maximum of 30 per year, per IHCP member, without PA, and subject to the restrictions in Section 2 of this rule. The rules set in 405 IAC 5-9-1 apply to E/M services. The E/M codes in Table 8.69 are subject to this limitation. Table 8.69 – Evaluation and Management Services Codes Subject to Limitation CPT Code 99201-99215 99241-99245 99381-99397 Per 405 IAC 5-9-2, office visits should be appropriate to the diagnosis and treatment given and properly coded. Providers must submit professional services rendered during the course of a hospital confinement on the CMS-1500 or 837P transaction. The IHCP reimburses in accordance with the appropriate professional fee schedule. The inpatient diagnosis-related group (DRG) reimbursement methodology does not provide payment for physician fees, including hospital-based physician fees. New patient office visits are limited to one visit per member, per provider within a three-year period. For purposes of this subsection, new patient means one patient who has not received any professional services from the provider or another provider of the same specialty that belongs to the same group practice. If a physician uses an emergency department as a substitute for the physician’s office for nonemergency services, providers should bill these visits with a CPT code usually used for a visit in the office with the site of service indicated. The IHCP will apply a site of service reduction in the reimbursement. If a provider performs a surgical procedure during the course of an office visit, the IHCP generally considers that the surgical fee includes the office visit. However, the provider may report the visit separately for the following reasons: the provider has never seen the member prior to the surgical procedure, the provider determines whether to perform surgery during the evaluation of the patient, or the patient is seen for evaluation of a separate clinical condition. Providers must use the following modifiers with the E/M visit code to identify these exceptional services. Use modifier 25 to show that there was a significant, separately identifiable E/M service by the same physician on the same day of a procedure. Use modifier 57 to show that an E/M service 8-236 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions resulted in the initial decision to perform surgery. The medical record must include appropriate documentation to substantiate the need for an office visit code in addition to the procedure code on the same date of service. Consultations The IHCP reimburses for the following two categories of consultation: • Office or other outpatient consultation • Inpatient consultation Office Consultation A consultation is a type of service provided by a physician whose opinion or advice about evaluation and management of a specific problem is requested by another physician or other appropriate source. A physician consultant may initiate diagnostic or therapeutic services. Providers should not use consultation codes for the evaluation of a self-referred or nonphysician-referred patient. A consultation implies collaboration between the requesting and the consulting physician. Providers should use consultation codes 99241– 99245. Providers should use office visit codes for established patients, 99211–99215, to report follow-up visits in the consultant’s office or other outpatient facility initiated by the physician consultant. When the attending physician receives an additional request for an opinion or advice about a new problem and documents it in the medical record, the provider may use the office consultation codes again. When the provider is billing consultation codes, the medical record must contain written documentation of the request for consultation by the requesting physician. The provider should maintain this documentation in the patient’s medical record at the requesting and receiving physician’s office. When a provider performs a consultation, the consulting physician customarily responds in writing to the requesting physician about the opinion or advice of the consulting physician. Providers may bill a maximum of one unit per patient per day for procedure code 99051 – Service(s) provided in the office during regularly scheduled evening, weekend, or holiday office hours, in addition to basic service. Evening hours are defined as routinely scheduled after 5 p.m. in the prevailing time zone. Providers may only bill for the following holidays, which represent days when physician offices are generally closed for the day: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. When billing for 99051, please document in the medical chart the time, date, or holiday, as applicable. All other billing requirements will remain unchanged. Inpatient Consultation The IHCP recognizes CPT codes 99251–99255 for inpatient consultations with new or established patients in the inpatient hospital setting. Consultants may report only one consultation per admission. Providers must document the request for consultation. Subsequent services are reported using Subsequent Hospital Care Codes 99231–99233. Hospital Observation or Inpatient Care Services The IHCP recognizes CPT codes 99234–99236 for observation or inpatient hospital care services provided to patients admitted and discharged on the same date of service. When a patient is admitted to the hospital from observation status on the same date, the physician should report only the initial hospital care code. The initial hospital care code includes all services related to the observation status Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-237 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions services the physician provided on the same date of an inpatient admission. The IHCP recognizes CPT codes 99217, 99218–99220 or 99221–99223, and 99238–99239 for patients admitted for observation or inpatient care and discharged on a different date. Hospital Discharge Services Providers should report hospital discharge day management by using CPT codes 99238 or 99239, depending on the amount of time spent discharging the patient. Providers should document this amount of time in the medical record to substantiate the code being billed. For a patient admitted and discharged from observation or inpatient status on the same date, report the service using CPT codes 99234–99236. Providers should report separately for hospital discharge services, using CPT codes 99238 and 99239, performed on the same day as an NF admission by the same provider. Critical Care Services The IHCP recognizes CPT codes 99291–99296 for reporting critical care services performed by a physician. The IHCP has adopted the guidelines set forth in the CPT manual, and providers can find a complete definition of critical care services in the current version of the CPT manual. Family Planning Services Coverage and Billing Procedures Family planning services are those services provided to individuals of childbearing age to temporarily or permanently prevent or delay pregnancy. Family planning services include the following: • Diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), if medically indicated • Follow-up care for complications associated with contraceptive methods issued by the family planning provider • Health education and counseling necessary to make informed choices and understand contraceptive methods • Laboratory tests, if medically indicated as part of the decision-making process for choice of contraceptive methods • Limited history and physical examination • Pregnancy testing and counseling • Provision of contraceptive pills, devices, and supplies • Screening, testing, and counseling of members at risk for HIV and referral and treatment • Tubal ligation or hysteroscopic sterilization with an implant device • Vasectomy Note: Family planning services are not covered under Package P – Presumptive Eligibility. Refer to the Qualified Provider Presumptive Eligibility Manual for more information. Family planning services can include pap smears if performed according to the United States Preventative Services Task Force Guidelines. The guidelines specify cervical cancer screening every one to three years, based on the presence of risk factors such as early onset of sexual intercourse and 8-238 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions multiple sexual partners; however, pap smear annual frequency may be reduced if three or more annual smears are normal. Based on the CMS’ policies, the IHCP considers initial STD diagnosis and treatment, HIV testing, and counseling provided during a family planning encounter to be part of the family planning services. Ongoing follow-up of STDs and visits for treatment of chronic STDs are not part of family planning services. Family planning services are self-referred in each of the managed care programs, but they require appropriate HCPCS or CPT codes and ICD-9-CM diagnosis combinations for CMS-1500 or 837P billing. See Table 8.70 for family planning ICD-9-CM codes. Table 8.70 – Diagnosis Codes – Family Planning ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Codes Definition V2501 Prescription of oral contraceptives V2502 Initiation of other contraceptive measures V2503 Encounter for emergency contraceptive counseling and prescription V2509 Contraceptive management, other V251 Intrauterine device (IUD) insertion V253 Menstrual extraction V2540 Contraceptive surveillance, unspecified V2541 Contraceptive pill surveillance V2542 IUD surveillance V2543 Implantable subdermal contraceptive V2549 Contraceptive surveillance, other V255 Insertion of implantable subdermal contraceptive V258 Other specified contraceptive management V259 Contraceptive management, unspecified Providers must bill services and supplies not classified as drugs or biologicals using the CMS-1500 or 837P. Providers should bill these services using appropriate CPT or HCPCS codes and appropriate ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes for services rendered or condition treated. For example, use ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes V25.01 through V25.9 for contraceptive management, and use ICD-9-CM diagnosis code 099.53 for acute chlamydial vaginitis. Providers using CPT code 99070 for supplies dispensed during a family planning visit should identify the name of the item dispensed on the CMS-1500 or 837P, below the line item being billed. Identify the quantity or number of packages dispensed in field 24G. The amount billed should reflect the appropriate cost of the contraceptive item and should not exceed the NDC packaging price. Do not substitute CPT code 99070 if an HCPCS code exists for the item dispensed. If billing electronically, the provider can submit the NDC of the drug administration in the claim notes section of the 837 transaction, and the claim will adjudicate appropriately. Ensure that the member’s chart contains the date of the office visit, the NDC code, and name of the product dispensed, as well as the amount of the item dispensed, such as four boxes of 30 items. Providers billing for Norplant Systems must use the CPT procedure codes listed in Table 8.71. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-239 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Table 8.71 – CPT Procedure Codes for Norplant Systems Procedure Code Description 11975 Insertion, implantable contraceptive capsules 11976 Removal, implantable contraceptive capsules 11977 Removal with reinsertion, implantable contraceptive capsules In accordance with CPT Changes, An Insider’s View 2002, published by the American Medical Association, “CPT Codes 11981–11983 differ from the other implant codes 11975–11977, in that codes 11975–11977 are also a type of nonbiodegradable capsule, but are specific for contraceptive use.” Table 8.72 lists CPT codes 11981–11983 and the description for clarification. Table 8.72 – CPT Codes for Other Contraception Implants CPT Code Description 11981 Insertion, nonbiodegradable drug delivery implant 11982 Removal, nonbiodegradable drug delivery implant 11983 Removal with insertion, nonbiodegradable drug delivery implant The IHCP covers HCPCS codes J7303 – Contraceptive supply, hormone containing vaginal ring, each, and J7304 – Contraceptive supply, hormone containing patch, each, effective October 1, 2005. Providers must bill J7303 and J7304 instead of a miscellaneous supply code because these codes are more specific to the service being supplied. Limits and Restrictions for Depo-Provera Contraceptive Injection HCPCS code J1055-Injection, medroxyprogesterone acetate for contraceptive use, 150 mg. The gender indicator will be “Female.” The allowable units per date of service (DOS) will be limited to one. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Depo-Provera Contraceptive Injection (CI) is a long-term contraceptive for women and is indicated only for the prevention of pregnancy. The recommended dose to women is 150 mg every three months. An appropriate HCPCS code for billing medroxyprogesterone for noncontraceptive use is J1051 – Injection, medroxyprogesterone acetate, 50 mg, which may be billed for multiple units, per member, on a single DOS. Managed Care Program Considerations Direct billing questions for Traditional IHCP and Care Select to Customer Assistance at (317) 6553240 in the Indianapolis local area or 1-800-577-1278. For Hoosier Healthwise RBMC questions, providers should contact the MCO to which the member has been assigned. Federally Qualified Health Centers and Rural Health Clinics Federally Qualified Health Centers FQHCs receive funds through the Public Health Service (PHS) and are designated as such. FQHC look-alikes meet the criteria but do not receive PHS funding and have not been given FQHC status by CMS. For information about this process, contact the Indiana Primary Health Care Association at (317) 8-240 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions 630-0845. To enroll as an FQHC, providers should forward the CMS letter, which grants the FQHC status, to the HP Provider Enrollment Unit with the completed application. The provider must also contact the IHCP’s rate-setting contractor, Myers and Stauffer, LC, to submit the proper financial documents to have a rate determined for the FQHC. Myers and Stauffer, LC forwards the rate document to the Provider Enrollment Unit so the encounter rate can be loaded into IndianaAIM. Each time the facility expands the scope of service and receives an adjustment to its encounter rate, Myers and Stauffer, LC must forward a new rate letter to the Provider Enrollment Unit to ensure that reimbursement remains accurate. In the Care Select network, FQHC provider specialties are not entitled to receive the monthly administrative fee payment. Rural Health Clinics RHCs receive their Medicare designation through CMS. The clinics must contact the ISDH to request RHC status for the IHCP. The IHCP requires all RHCs to submit finalized (reviewed or audited) cost reports and copies of their Medicare rate letters to Myers and Stauffer, LC. RHC services are defined in 42CFR 405.2411 and 42 CFR 440.20. For more information about becoming an RHC under the IHCP, contact the Indiana Department of Health, the Indiana Primary Health Care Association at (317) 630-0845, or other practice consultants. Each time the facility expands its scope of service and receives an adjustment to its encounter rate, Myers and Stauffer, LC must forward the new rate letter to the Provider Enrollment Unit to ensure that reimbursement remains accurate. In the Care Select network, RHC provider specialties are not entitled to receive the monthly administrative fee payment. Service Coverage According to 405 IAC 5-16-5, IHCP reimbursement is available to RHCs and FQHCs for services provided by the following providers: • Physician • Physician assistant • Nurse practitioner • Clinical psychologist • Clinical social worker The IHCP also provides reimbursement to RHCs and FQHCs for services provided by the following providers: • Dentist • Dental hygienist • Podiatrist • Optometrist The IHCP also reimburses for services and supplies incidental to such services, which the IHCP would otherwise cover if furnished by a physician or incident to a physician’s services. The IHCP covers services to a homebound individual only in the case of those FQHCs located in an area with a shortage of home health agencies, as determined by the OMPP. The IHCP considers any other ambulatory service included in the Medicaid state plan to be a covered FQHC service if the FQHC offers such a service. FQHC services are defined the same as services provided by RHCs. FQHCs and RHCs should contact Myers and Stauffer, LC for information about cost reports and interim cost settlements. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-241 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions FQHC and RHC Covered Services In accordance with Section 702 of the Medicare, Medicaid, and State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) Benefits Improvement and Protection Act of 2000 (BIPA), significant changes occurred with the IHCP reimbursement methodology for FQHCs and RHCs. Billing procedures and administrative requirements also changed for fee-for-service billing for each type of facility. Providers must use the prospective payment system (PPS) methodology for claims submitted with dates of service (DOS) on or after April 1, 2003. All FQHC and RHC facilities must submit claims using HCPCS Level III codes, including the current code T1015 – (clinic, visit/encounter, all-inclusive) and Level I and Level II HCPCS procedure codes. FQHCs and RHCs continue to receive a facility-specific PPS rate determined by Myers and Stauffer, LC. Myers and Stauffer, LC forwards the specific PPS rate information to HP, and the HP Provider Enrollment Unit loads the rate for reimbursement of T1015 to the specific provider enrollment file for reimbursement. Providers must submit claims for valid FQHC and RHC encounters with a place of service of 11, 12, 31, 32, 50, or 72. Providers must use the T1015 – Clinic visit/encounter, all-inclusive code and CPT or HCPCS codes. The claim logic compares the other CPT or HCPCS codes used to a list of valid CPT and HCPCS codes approved by the OMPP. If the claim contains T1015 and one of the allowable procedure codes from the encounter criteria, the CPT or HCPCS codes correctly are denied for EOB 6096 – The CPT/HCPCS code billed is not payable according to the PPS reimbursement methodology. The encounter rate (T1015) is reimbursed according to the usual and customary charge (UCC) established by Myers and Stauffer, LC from the provider-specific rate on the provider file. The provider should not resubmit CPT or HCPCS codes separately that were denied for EOB 6096 – The CPT/HCPCS code billed is not payable according to the PPS reimbursement methodology. Providers should identify all services provided during the visit using all the appropriate CPT and HCPCS codes. If the CPT or HCPCS codes billed do not contain one of the procedure codes included in the list of allowable procedure codes from the encounter criteria for place of service 11, 12, 31, 32, 50, or 72, the claim is denied for EOB 4124 – The CPT/HCPCS code billed is not a valid encounter. Providers should not resubmit claims denied for EOB 4124 – The CPT/HCPCS code billed is not a valid encounter for payments. Additionally, claims submitted with a place of service 11, 12, 31, 32, 50, or 72 with CPT or HCPCS codes that do not have the T1015 present on the claims are denied for EOB 4121 – T1015 must be billed with a valid CPT/HCPCS code. Providers can resubmit these claims with the T1015 code properly included on the claim. The IHCP allows only one encounter per IHCP member, per provider, per day, unless the diagnosis code differs. When the IHCP determines the number of allowable encounters for that specific claim, it multiplies that number by the facility-specific PPS rate to calculate the amount paid on the claim. Providers can submit valid encounters with differing diagnosis codes for a member that exceed the allowed one encounter per day to HP for manual processing. Providers can submit claims electronically using the 837P transaction. When a provider submits claims for valid encounters submitted using the 837P transaction, those claims must contain the T1015 and the CPT/HCPCS codes for the services rendered. For services provided at these place of service locations that are not valid encounters with the appropriate provider, such as injections performed by a nurse without a corresponding visit to satisfy the valid encounter definition, providers should instead reflect the services in the facility’s cost report submitted to Myers and Stauffer, LC. Hospital Services The IHCP reimburses claims submitted with place of service 20-26 at the current reimbursement rate for each specific CPT/HCPCS code. It is not necessary for providers to include the T1015 encounter 8-242 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions code on claims with place of service 20-26. The IHCP considers these services non-FQHC/RHC services provided by the valid provider but in a setting other than an RHC/FQHC setting. Dental Services Providers should continue to bill dental claims for services provided at an FQHC or RHC on a dental claim form using Current Dental Terminology (CDT) codes. Do not include the T1015 encounter code on the dental claim form. Myers and Stauffer, LC makes settlements and reconciles dental claims to the provider-specific PPS rate through annual reconciliations. The reconciliations continue until the IndianaAIM system is adapted to the PPS methodology. Care Select Claims submitted for Care Select members require PMP authorization if the service provided to the member was not provided by the PMP. Refer to the billing information at the beginning of this section for information about submitting the paper CMS-1500 claim form. Services provided to a Care Select member, such as immunizations, at a location other than the PMP’s office require the Memorandum of Collaboration (MOC) and authorization information. If the visit does not satisfy the criteria for an encounter with a valid provider, the claim is denied. Providers can use the denial information to track these services and reflect them in the facilities cost report. Self-referral services provided at the FQHC or RHC do not require PMP authorization information when appropriately billed. These must, however, satisfy the criteria for valid encounters and include the T1015 encounter code when submitting the claim for processing. Third-Party Liability Considerations All third-party liability (TPL), patient liability, and copayments continue to apply as appropriate. Allowable EPSDT and pregnancy services provided during the encounter visit and appropriately billed continue to bypass TPL. Providers need to apply previous TPL payments and spend-down to the total amount due. The IHCP excludes all Medicare crossover claims from the PPS logic, as well as the crossover reimbursement methodology, and continues to pay coinsurance and deductible amounts. Risk-Based Managed Care Providers should continue to use CPT codes to bill claims for members in RBMC. Providers must submit the claims to the applicable managed care organization. Do not include the T1015 encounter code on these claims. Myers and Stauffer, LC reconciles all managed care claims to the providerspecific PPS rate and makes annual settlements at that time. Providers may submit requests for supplemental payment to Myers and Stauffer, LC. The MCOs must also provide data related to annual reconciliations to Myers and Stauffer, LC. Medicare Processed Claims Submitted to the IHCP by the Provider Providers can submit claims electronically using the 837I or the 837P transaction. Claims submitted using the 837P transaction must contain the T1015 and the CPT codes for the services rendered. Per the Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) Emergency Rule LSA #02-121, all paper UB-04 claim form or electronic 837I transaction crossover claims must contain additional information on the claim form. The rule changed how the IHCP reimburses providers for crossover claims. The IHCP uses the information in the required fields on the paper UB-04 claim form or electronic 837I transaction to process claims. Fields 39 through 41 on the paper UB-04 claim form must contain value code A1 to reflect the Medicare deductible amount and value code A2 to reflect the Medicare coinsurance amount. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-243 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions To ensure correct reimbursement, the paper UB-04 claim form or the electronic 837I transaction must show Medicare as the previous payer. Additionally, the paper UB-04 claim form or electronic 837I transaction must contain the Medicare paid amount (actual dollars received from Medicare). Providers should continue to report TPL payments on the paper UB-04 claim form or the electronic 837I transaction. Providers can use the professional format to submit claims processed by Medicare that did not cross over to the IHCP. These are claims allowed by Medicare that failed to cross over and Medicare-denied claims. Providers should refer to the 837 companion guides for specific information about electronic claims transaction requirements to be used with the 837 implementation guides. For the links to the appropriate Web sites and documents, go to http://provider.indianamedicaid.com. Providers that submit claims on paper when claims do not automatically cross over from Medicare to the IHCP must submit FQHC and RHC encounter service claims on the paper CMS-1500 claim form. Submit the paper claims using CPT or HCPCS codes for FQHCs, provider-based RHCs, or independent RHCs along with the T1015 for services billed. If Medicare denied the claim, providers must attach the Medicare Remittance Notice (MRN) and make sure that the MRN is clearly marked as a Medicare MRN. If you are submitting an electronically generated MRN, you must print it in landscape format so that all information is properly and clearly labeled. Providers can submit claims electronically using the 837I or 837P transaction. Claims submitted using the 837P transaction must contain the T1015 and the CPTs for the services rendered. Provider Enrollment Considerations All physicians associated with the clinic must have an individual IHCP provider number (LPI). Provider must also report their NPI number to IHCP. The provider numbers must be linked to the FQHC or RHC. The clinic must also notify the Provider Enrollment Unit in writing when a provider is no longer associated with the FQHC or RHC so that the clinic provider profile is current. If the CMS notifies an FQHC or RHC that the FQHC or RHC status has been terminated, the provider must also send a copy of the termination to the ISDH, which then forwards it to the Provider Enrollment Unit. The provider must contact HP to request an application to enroll as a medical clinic until FQHC or RHC status is reinstated. Failure to do this will result in disenrollment as a provider and loss of any managed care members assigned to PMPs linked to that location. Physician assistants cannot obtain an IHCP rendering provider NPI number. Providers must use the supervising practitioner’s NPI number to submit claims for services rendered by these practitioners. Service Definition The IHCP defines a visit as a face-to-face encounter between a clinic patient and a physician or other provider. The IHCP considers multiple services that a provider performs during the same visit for the same or related diagnosis to be a single encounter, even though the provider can consider them separate encounters if billed independently. For example, if a patient receives a dental exam and an amalgam during the same visit, the IHCP considers it a single encounter. The IHCP considers multiple visits that occur within the same 24-hour period to be a single encounter if they are for the same diagnosis. The IHCP considers them to be multiple encounters if the diagnosis is different. For example, if the patient has an office visit in the morning and returns later the same day with the same or related diagnosis, the IHCP considers the two instances as a single encounter. However, if a patient has an office visit in the morning and returns later the same day for treatment of a fracture, two different encounters have occurred. 8-244 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Providers can bill only one unit of service on a single detail line of the paper or electronic claim form. When two valid providers see the same patient in the same day, such as a medical provider and a mental health provider, the principal diagnoses should not be the same. Providers should break down consecutive service dates so that they bill each day on a separate line. When a provider has more than one visit per day for the same member for the same provider and the diagnoses are different, the IHCP requires a manual review. Therefore, providers should submit proper documentation along with the claim to substantiate the need for additional visits. This documentation includes, but is not limited to, the following: • Visits performed at separate times of the day that indicate the times and the reasons for each visit on the face of the claim or on a claim attachment • Visits provided by different providers on the same day that indicate the type of provider that rendered each visit and denote which practitioner treated which diagnosis • Documentation in writing from the medical record that supports the medical reasons for the additional visit - This documentation includes presenting symptoms or reasons for the visit, onset of symptoms, and treatment rendered. • Documentation that the diagnosis for each encounter is different The IHCP also reimburses for services and supplies incidental to such services as would otherwise be covered if furnished by a physician or as an incident to a physician’s services. Services such as drawing blood, collecting urine specimens, performing laboratory tests, taking X-rays, filling and dispensing prescriptions, or providing optician services do not constitute encounters. Providers can include these services in the encounter reimbursement when performed in conjunction with the office visit to a valid provider. The IHCP does not reimburse for these services through claim submission if performed without a visit with a valid provider. FQHCs and RHCs can provide preventive services and encounters, care coordination, and HealthWatch services. The Care Coordination Services section in this chapter and the HealthWatch/EPSDT supplemental provider manual provide more information about those services. HealthWatch/EPSDT Services Coverage and Billing Procedures The Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT) Program, referred to as HealthWatch/EPSDT in Indiana, is a preventive healthcare program designed to improve the overall health of IHCP eligible members from birth to 21 years old. Special emphasis is given to early detection and treatment of health issues because these efforts can reduce the risk of more costly treatment or hospitalizations that can result when detection is delayed. Because HealthWatch/EPSDT services include more components than a simple well-child office visit, reimbursement rates for HealthWatch/EPSDT screens are higher than the rates paid for well-child exams. To offer HealthWatch/EPSDT services, the provider must be licensed to perform an unclothed physical exam, as well as other screening components of the HealthWatch/EPSDT examination. A copy of the HealthWatch manual is available on the Web site at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com/general-provider-services/manuals.aspx. Medicaid-enrolled providers must furnish and document all components of the EPSDT visit to bill for the higher rate of reimbursement for EPSDT screens. To review a complete list of EPSDT requirements, refer to the HealthWatch/EPSDT Provider Manual for screening and referral details.

Managed Care Considerations EPSDT is a required component of care for Hoosier Healthwise and Care Select members. If the member is in a Hoosier Healthwise RBMC network, the member’s MCO can provide information. Information on Care Select members can be obtained through the member’s CMO. Hearing Aids Coverage and Billing Procedures If a provider voluntarily provides a loaner hearing aid for a 30-day trial period, the loaner hearing aid for that 30-day trial period does not need PA. Purchase of a hearing aid becomes effective with the authorization of the PA request. Hearing Aid Purchase The IHCP provides reimbursement for the purchase, repair, or replacement of hearing aids under the following conditions: • PA is required for the purchase of hearing aids. • When a member is fitted with a hearing aid by an audiologist or a registered hearing aid specialist, the specialist must complete and submit a medical clearance and audiometric test form with the PA request form. Providers must perform professional audiology services associated with dispensing a hearing aid in accordance with the appropriate provisions of 405 IAC 5-19-13, Hearing aids, purchase. • Hearing aids purchased by the IHCP become the property of the OMPP. • The IHCP does not cover hearing aids for members with a unilateral pure tone average (500, 1,000, 2,000, or 3,000 hertz) equal to or less than 30 decibels. • The IHCP authorizes binaural aids and Contralateral Routing Of Signals (CROS) type aids only when providers can document significant, objective benefit to the member. • The IHCP covers programmable hearing aids when the member meets certain criteria. • Reimbursement of the hearing aid includes dispensing fees, which are not separately billable. • The IHCP does not reimburse for canal hearing aids. Maintenance and Repair The IHCP reimburses for the maintenance and repair of hearing aids as defined in 405 IAC 5-19-14, Hearing aids; maintenance and repairs, under the following conditions: • The IHCP does not require PA for repairs for hearing aids and ear molds; however, the IHCP does not make reimbursement for such repairs more frequently than once every 12 months. Providers can obtain PA for repairs more frequently for members under 18 years of age if the provider documents circumstances justifying the need. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-247 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions • The IHCP does not require PA for batteries, sound hooks, tubing, and cords. Providers must use the appropriate HCPCS code and indicate the number of packages in the quantity field of the CMS-1500 claim form. Note: The IHCP designates one unit of code V5266 to represent four batteries; therefore, when submitting claims to the IHCP for reimbursement, providers are to report one unit of V5266 for each package of four batteries supplied. • The IHCP does not pay for repair of hearing aids still under warranty. • The IHCP does not cover routine servicing of functional hearing aids. • The IHCP makes no payment for repair or replacement of hearing aids necessitated by member misuse or abuse, whether intentional or unintentional. Replacement The IHCP reimburses for the replacement of hearing aids as defined in 405 IAC 5-19-15, Hearing aids; replacement, and under the following conditions: • The IHCP reimburses for the replacement of hearing aids, subject to the conditions listed in the maintenance and repairs section. • Requests for replacement of hearing aids must document all the following: - Change in the member’s hearing status - Purchase date of current hearing aid - Condition of current hearing aid • The IHCP does not replace hearing aids before five years from the purchase date of a previously purchased hearing aid. Providers can prior authorize replacements more frequently for members under 18 years old, if the provider documents circumstances justifying the medical necessity (see 405 IAC 5-22-7 for more information). Audiology Services Audiology services are subject to the following restrictions: • The physician must certify in writing the need for audiology assessment or evaluation. • The audiology service must be rendered by a licensed audiologist or a person registered for his or her clinical fellowship year that is supervised by a licensed audiologist. A registered audiology aide can provide services under the direct on-site supervision of a licensed audiologist under 880 IAC 1-1. • When an audiologist or a registered hearing aid specialist fits a member with a hearing amplification device, the provider must complete a medical clearance and audiometric test form in accordance with the instructions given herein and submitted with the PA request form. Providers must ensure that the form is complete and includes the proper signatures, where indicated. • The IHCP limits audiological assessments to one assessment every three years per member. If more frequent audiological assessments are necessary, providers must obtain PA. • Provisions of audiological services are subject to the following criteria: - Audiologists should enroll in the IHCP and receive direct reimbursement for services rendered. - The contractor reviews all requests for PA on a case-by-case basis. 8-248 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions - - - - The involved professional(s) must complete the member history. The referring physician must complete Part 2 of the Medical Clearance and Audiometric Test Form no earlier than six months before providing the hearing aid. An otolaryngologist must examine children 14 years old and younger. A licensed physician can examine older members if an otolaryngologist is not available. The audiologist must conduct all testing in a sound-free enclosure. If a member is institutionalized and his or her physical or medical condition precludes testing in a sound-free enclosure, the ordering physician must verify medical confinement in the initial order for audiological testing. A licensed audiologist, clinical fellowship year audiologist, or otolaryngologist must conduct the audiological assessment. The IHCP does not reimburse for testing conducted by other professionals and cosigned by an audiologist or otolaryngologist. If the audiological evaluation reveals one or more of the following conditions, the member must be referred to an otolaryngologist for further evaluation: • Speech discrimination testing must indicate a score of less than 60 percent in either ear. • Pure tone testing must indicate an air bone gap of 15 decibels or more for two adjacent frequencies in the same ear with a speech discrimination score of less than 60 percent. The audiologist or registered hearing aid specialist must complete the hearing aid evaluation. Before the IHCP grants PA, providers must document the results of the hearing aid evaluation on the PA request and must indicate that the member can derive significant benefit from amplification. A registered hearing aid specialist must sign the hearing aid contract portion of the audiometric test form. For audiology assessments rendered more frequently than every three years, providers must obtain prior authorization and assess on a case-by-case basis, based on documented otologic disease. Note: For audiology procedures, providers cannot fragment and bill separately. The IHCP considers hearing tests, such as whispered voice and tuning fork, to be part of the general otolaryngology services and may not be reported separately. Basic comprehensive audiometry includes pure tone, air and bone threshold, and discrimination. The IHCP reimburses for all other audiometric testing procedures on an individual basis, based on the medical necessity of the test procedure. The following audiology services do not require PA: • Screening tests indicating the need for additional medical examination; however, screenings are not reimbursed separately • Initial hearing assessments • Determinations of suitability of amplification and recommendations about a hearing aid • Determinations of functional benefit gained by use of a hearing aid The facility’s established per diem rate includes audiology services provided by an NF, large private intermediate care facility for the mentally retarded (ICF/MR), or small ICF/MR. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-249 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Augmentative Communication Devices Coverage and Billing Procedures An Alternative or Augmentative Communication (AAC) device is a device or system that compensates for the loss or impairment of speech function due to a congenital condition, an acquired disability, or a progressive neurological disease. The term includes only equipment used for communication, such as electronic devices. Reimbursement The IHCP reimburses for a communication device if a medical doctor or a doctor of osteopathy orders the device in writing. The IHCP requires PA for a communication device. Requesting practitioners must include medical necessity documentation on or attached to the PA request form that is submitted. As part of the PA request, providers must submit a speech pathologist’s clinical evaluation, substantiating the medical necessity for the communication device. Authorization The IHCP grants authorization of reimbursement for a communication device only when the provider sends the following: • Documentation to substantiate that the member demonstrates sufficient mental and physical ability to benefit from the use of the system • Documentation to substantiate that, in the absence of a communication device, people outside the member’s communication environment cannot effectively understand the member • Documentation to substantiate that the provider reasonably expects that the member’s medical condition will necessitate use of the device for at least two years • Documentation that identifies all communication devices that would meet the member’s communication needs, taking into account the physical and cognitive strengths and weaknesses of the member and the member’s communication environment - The documentation should note the recommended least expensive communication device. • Documentation that the intended use of a computer or computerized device is to compensate for the member’s loss or impairment of communication function (in cases where the provider requests authorization for a computer or computerized device) Trial Period The IHCP does not require a trial period for AAC devices, but the speech-language pathologist who conducts the AAC evaluation may recommend a trial period. The IHCP approves PA for rental of an AAC device for a trial use period when the speech and language pathologist prepares a request that includes the following information: • Duration of the trial period • Examination of the AAC device during the trial period, including all the necessary components, such as mounting device, software, and switches or access control mechanism • Identification of the AAC services provider that will assist the member during the trial period 8-250 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions • Identification of the AAC services provider that will assess the trial period • Evaluation criteria specific to the member, used to determine the success or failure of the trial period • Extension of trial periods and provision of different AAC devices when requested by the speech and language pathologist responsible for evaluating the trial use period Rental Versus Purchase The IHCP contractor determines whether to rent or purchase an approved AAC device, based on the least expensive option to meet the member’s needs. The IHCP denies no AAC device to an eligible member solely because it is not available for rental. Repair and Replacement The IHCP does not authorize replacement of an augmentative communication device more often than once every five years per member, unless a documented change in the member’s medical needs arises and is significant enough to warrant a different type of equipment. Rehabilitation Engineering Subject to PA, the IHCP covers rehabilitation engineering service necessary to mount or make adjustments to a communication device. The IHCP also covers speech therapy services as medically necessary to aid the member in the effective use of a communication device, subject to this rule and 405 IAC 5-22, Nursing and Therapy Services. Pneumatic Artificial Voicing Systems Coverage and Billing Procedures For a pneumatic artificial voice system or artificial larynx, the IHCP reimburses subject to PA. The IHCP grants PA only when the provider sends the following: • Documentation to substantiate that the member demonstrates sufficient mental and physical ability to benefit from the use of the system • Documentation to substantiate that the member demonstrates sufficient articulation and language skills to benefit from the use of the system Purchase When a provider supplies a pneumatic artificial voice system or an artificial larynx to a member on an inpatient basis, the attendant costs fall under the established per diem rate for the hospital or LTC facility. The provider should not bill for attendant costs separately. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-251 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Home and Community-Based Services Waiver Programs Coverage and Billing Procedures The IHCP reimburses Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) waiver providers for covered services they provide to waiver members using a standard, statewide rate-setting methodology. The OMPP establishes waiver service rates and rate capitations. All waiver providers, including home health agencies, should continue to bill waiver services on the CMS-1500 or 837P. Note: Providers should verify member eligibility on the 1st and 15th of the month, because member eligibility in managed care is effective on the 1st and 15th calendar days of the month. If a member is enrolled in Hoosier Healthwise, contact that member’s MCO immediately. MCO contact information is included in Chapter 1. If the member is identified as a Care Select member, contact the care management organization (CMO) to which the member is assigned. Supportive documentation is required when billing for waiver services. The documentation requirements are defined in the waiver service definition specific to the waiver service provided. The documentation must include the following: • Complete date of service, including month, day, and year • Time entry for service provided, including the time in and time out, noting a.m. and p.m., as appropriate, unless the provider chooses to use 24-hour time notations. Providers should ensure consistent notation of time, either standard notation or 24-hour notation. • Number of units of service delivered on that date. • Signature of any staff member providing the service or making entries into the documentation. Signature must include a minimum of the first initial and last name, and must include the staff member’s certification or title. To receive appropriate reimbursement, the provider must bill only the waiver services and procedure codes shown on the approved notice of action (NOA). Providers must ensure that the documentation of the service rendered and the procedure code billed are in accordance with the service definition and parameters as published in the approved waiver. In addition, the service must be authorized on the client’s NOA and listed on the member’s prior authorization file. In an institutional setting (for example, hospitalized or incarcerated), the only HCBS waiver service for which a provider can render and receive reimbursement is case management. The IHCP prohibits reimbursement for other services including, but not limited to, respite, residential habilitation and support (RHS), and behavior management while the member is institutionalized. For service providers that use electronic signatures for documentation, a specific policy must be in place on how electronic signatures will be done, controlled, and verified. Please see the Electronic Digital Signatures Act (IC 5-24) and the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (IC 26-2-8). The State Board of Accounts has promulgated a rule at 20 IAC 3 with additional regulations. These citations are specific to documents transmitted to the state. 8-252 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Injections Coverage and Billing Procedures With the exception of vaccines available through the Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program, the IHCP calculates the maximum allowable amount for reimbursement for physician office-administered injectable drugs, using HCPCS J codes and CPT immunization codes, on the basis of the most costeffective, current, reimbursement for an appropriate NDC, identified as the benchmark NDC. The maximum allowable reimbursement is equal to Wholesale Acquisition Cost (WAC) plus 5 percent (WAC+5%) of the benchmark NDC or, if no WAC data is available, CMS’ reimbursement, which is currently Average Sales Price (ASP) plus 6 percent (ASP+6%). The maximum allowable cost corresponds to the dose in the narrative description of the HCPCS or CPT code. When the provider specifies no dose in the narrative, the reimbursement rate is set by the contractor responsible for updating the rates based on what corresponds to a typical dose for the particular code. The IHCP notifies providers through bulletins or banner pages about reimbursement rates for codes that have no dose or are dose-unspecified. For injectable drugs, vaccines that are not part of the VFC program, and vaccines typically part of the VFC program but supplied out of private stock, providers may separately bill an appropriate CPT administration code, 96372 - 96373, in addition to the HCPCS J-code or CPT drug code. If an E/M code is billed with the same date of service as an office-administered drug, the provider should not bill a drug administration code separately. Reimbursement for administration is included in the E/M code allowed amount. Separate reimbursement is allowed when the administration of the drug is the only service billed by the practitioner. In addition, if more than one injection is given on the same date of service and no E/M code is billed, providers may bill a separate administration fee for each injection using the appropriate codes. The IHCP reviews pricing for physician office-administered injectable drugs quarterly and updates pricing according to WAC data in the drug database file received from First DataBank. If no WAC data is available, Medicare’s reimbursement, currently ASP+6%, is used. The IHCP limits joint injections to three injections per joint site, per provider, per month. Claims submitted for more than three injections in a one-month period must have supporting documentation attached to indicate that the provider administered no more than four injections to a single joint site. Providers can utilize the claim note section to document that the injections are performed on different joints and indicate the site of the injection. The IHCP limits Vitamin B12 injections to one per 30 days per member. When a provider cannot use an existing CPT or HCPCS code to bill for new injectable drugs that the IHCP covers because the IHCP has not assigned a specific code, the provider should use an appropriate nonspecific CPT or HCPCS code such as J3490 – Unclassified drugs or 90749 – Unlisted immunization procedure to bill. Providers can use a nonspecific CPT or HCPCS code only when no code is available with a narrative that accurately describes the drug being administered or the drug’s route of administration. The IHCP manually prices drugs billed with a nonspecific CPT or HCPCS code, and providers must submit them with an attachment. For all CMS-1500 claims or 837P transactions billed with a nonspecific code, providers must write the NDC qualifier, NDC, NDC unit of measure, and number of units administered on the claim itself; otherwise, the IHCP must deny the claim. The IHCP reimburses for nonspecific codes at the WAC+5% – or ASP+6% if no WAC data is available – of the National Drug Code (NDC) indicated on the claim form, multiplied by the number of units administered. For electronic 837 transactions, providers can indicate the NDC for the drug dispensed in the NDC field. The NDC quantity and unit of measure must also be provided. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-253 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions The Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 requires that NDCs are submitted on the CMS-1500 in the shaded area of field 24a beginning August 1, 2007. Because the State may pay up to the 20 percent Medicare B copayment for dual-eligible individuals, the NDC is required on Medicare crossover claims for all applicable procedure codes. Remittance Advice The Remittance Advice (RA) will not display the NDC submitted on the claim. The following edits will be activated as a part of claims processing: • Edit 0217 – NDC number is missing. • Edit 0218 – NDC number is not in a valid format. • Edit 0219 – Quantity dispensed or quantity billed information is missing. • Edit 4003 – Less than effective drugs are not covered under Indiana Health Coverage Programs.

A list of noncovered, less than effective drugs (DESI) is located at: http://www.cms.hhs.gov/MedicaidDrugRebateProgram/downloads/desi.pdf. • Edit 4004 – This NDC is not on file. Please verify that the NDC was filed correctly. • Edit 4007 – Noncovered NDC due to CMS Termination – Claims with an NDC that has been terminated by the CMS will not be reimbursable. • Edit 4300 – Invalid NDC to procedure code combination. • Edit 0810 – NDC Unit Qualifier (unit of measure) is missing. • Edit 1016 – Nonparticipating Manufacturer – Claims with an NDC from a nonrebating manufacturer will be denied and are not reimbursable. Note: CMS maintains a list of rebating labelers located at: http://www.cms.hhs.gov/MedicaidDrugRebateProgram/10_DrugComCon tactInfo.asp. Providers can also contact their wholesaler or drug supplier to determine if products supplied are from CMS rebating labelers. Procedure Codes Procedure codes that require the submission of the product NDC and NDC quantity, along with the procedure code and procedure code billing units, are listed on the Indiana Medicaid Web site. This list is reviewed and updated on an annual basis, or as determined by the OMPP. The procedure codes listed in the document located at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com/media/28002/pg%20154%20codes%20as%20of%205_06_08.pdf do not guarantee coverage. About the NDC Medication listed under Section 510 of the U.S. Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act is assigned a unique 11-digit, three-segment number. This number, known as the National Drug Code (NDC), identifies the labeler or vendor, product, and package size. The first segment, known as the labeler code, is assigned by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). A labeler is any firm that manufactures, repacks, or distributes a drug product. The second segment, known as the product code, 8-254 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions identifies a specific drug, strength, and dosage form of that drug. The third segment, known as the package code, identifies the package size. For purposes of meeting the new billing requirement, NDCs must be configured in what is referred to as a “5-4-2” format; the first segment must include five digits, the second segment must include four digits, the third segment must include two digits. If an NDC segment is missing a number on the product label, the appropriate number of zeros must be added at the beginning of the segment. For example, 12345-1234-12 is a correctly configured NDC. Because a zero can be a valid digit in the NDC, this can lead to confusion when trying to reformat the NDC back to its FDA standard. Example: 12345-0678-09 (11 digits) could appear as 12345-678-09 or 12345-0678-9 on the label, depending on the labeler’s configuration. To ensure proper payment of claims, the NDC must be zero-padded as appropriate. The procedure code billing units, as well as the NDC quantity, are required. To report the NDC on the CMS-1500 claim form, enter the following information into the shaded portion of fields 24A to 24H: • Enter the NDC qualifier of N4 • Enter the NDC 11-digit numeric code • Enter the drug description • Enter the NDC Unit qualifier - F2 – International Unit - GR – Gram - ML – Milliliter - UN – Unit • Enter the NDC Quantity (Administered Amount) in the format 9999.99 NDC Quantity The procedure code billing units and NDC quantity do not always have a one-to-one relationship. The NDC quantity is based on the strength of the drug administered per unit, and the designated strength of the procedure code. The NDC quantity billed must be reflective of the procedure code quantity billed on the claim. Compounds – Professional Claim Types When billing any compound drugs that require an NDC, providers must bill the appropriate NDC for each procedure code. Providers will receive payment for all valid NDCs included in the compound drugs. When billing NDCs that have one procedure code but that involve multiple NDCs, providers will no longer need to use the KP and KQ modifiers. Providers will bill the claim with the appropriate NDC for the drug they are dispensing on separate detail lines. For example, if a provider administers 150 mg of Synagis, most likely a 50 mg vial plus a 100 mg vial would be used. These two vials have different NDCs but one procedure code; therefore, the item would be billed with two detail lines for the same procedure code and the corresponding NDCs. This change includes crossover claims as well. Botulinum Toxin Coverage and Billing Procedures Currently there are three available botulinum toxin products: Botox (J0585), Dysport (J0586), and Myobloc (J0587). Providers should be aware that the potency units of these products are not interchangeable with each other and, therefore, units of biological activity of one product cannot be compared to or converted into units of other bolulinum toxin products. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-255 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Due to the short life of these products, the IHCP has developed the following policies when providers administer less than a full vial in a single treatment session. • Because botulinium toxin type A is supplied in 100 unit vials, it will be appropriate for the provider to bill the entire 100 units to Indiana Medicaid when less than 100 units are injected in a single treatment session and the balance of the product is discarded. If more than 100 units are injected in a single treatment session, and the remainder is not used for another patient, round the number of units billed on the claim up to the nearest 100 units. Whenever unused botulinium toxin type A is billed, both the amount of the agent actually administered and the amount discarded is to be documented in the patient’s medical record. • Due to the short shelf life of Myobloc, wastage of the product may be unavoidable. The IHCP has adopted the following policy for billing unused units of Myobloc. Myobloc is supplied in 2,500 units, 5,000 units, and 10,000 units. When billing for Myobloc, the provider must show the number of units given on the claim form. If a vial is split between two or more members, the provider must bill the amount of the Myobloc used for each member and bill the unused amount as wastage on the claim for the last member injected. If the provider does not split the vial between two or more members, the provider may bill the discarded portion to the IHCP. Whenever a provider bills for unused Myobloc, the provider must document the amount of agent actually administered and the amount discarded in the member’s medical record. • Similarly, the IHCP has adopted the following policy for billing unused units of Dysport (J0586). Dysport is supplied in 300 unit and 500 unit preservative-free, single-use vials. When billing for Dysport, the provider must show the number of units given on the claim form and may bill the discarded portion to the IHCP. Whenever a provider bills for unused Dysport, the provider must document the amount of agent actually administered and the amount discarded in the member’s medical record. Providers should bill botulinum toxin injections using the appropriate HCPCS codes. Table 8.74 – HCPCS Codes for Botulinum Toxin Injections HCPCS Code Code Description J0585 Injection, onabotulinumtoxina, 1 unit J0586 Injection, abobotulinumtoxina, 5 units J0587 Injection, rimabotulinumtoxinb, 100 units IHCP reimbursement for botulinum toxin injections must include one of the following CPT codes available for billing chemodenervation, listed in Table 8.75.

The IHCP also limits reimbursement of these injections to one treatment session every three months, per member, unless an additional injection is medically necessary. The medical record must contain documentation of the medical necessity for additional treatment sessions provided within a three-month period. Vaccines for Children Program The IHCP encourages providers to bill drugs on the IFSSA Drug Claim Form instead of billing unlisted codes on a CMS-1500 or 837P. Chapter 9 in this manual provides instructions for completing the IFSSA Drug Claim Form. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-257 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions The section in this chapter titled Vaccines for Children provides information about billing procedures and reimbursement for vaccines available through the VFC Program. Laboratory Services Coverage and Billing Procedures The IHCP defines a laboratory as any facility that performs laboratory testing on specimens derived from humans to provide information for the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of disease, or for information about impairment or assessment of health. Providers must order all laboratory services in writing and include a condition-related diagnosis that necessitates the laboratory services. Providers should use the pathology and laboratory guidelines noted in the CPT and HCPCS codes when billing laboratory services. To receive reimbursement from the IHCP for laboratory services falling under Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment (CLIA) regulations, the provider must have a valid copy of the CLIA certificate on file with the contractor and must bill only lab codes allowed by the certificate. The section in Chapter 4 of this manual titled Provider Eligibility gives further information about CLIA, or the provider can contact the ISDH at (317) 233-7502. Provider types subject to CLIA rules include those in Table 8.77. Table 8.77 – CLIA Provider Types CLIA Code Description 01 Hospitals, type/specialty 010–012 04 Rehabilitation facilities 05 Home health agencies 06 Hospices 08 Clinics, type/specialty 080–085 11 Mental health, type/specialty 110–111 13 Public health agencies 14 Podiatrists 15 Chiropractors 28 Laboratories, type/specialty 280–281 30 End-stage renal disease clinics 31 Physicians, all types/specialties Refer to the CMS Web site for information about the procedures that are eligible for reimbursement under specific CLIA certificates. For more information, go to the Web site http://www.cms.hhs.gov/clia and select Categorization of Tests. Clinical Diagnostic Laboratory Procedures When billing for clinical diagnostic tests, providers must indicate the appropriate CPT or HCPCS code on the claim form. Laboratories performing services must bill the IHCP directly unless otherwise specified by the CMS. If the provider administers the procedure more than one time in the same day, the provider should bill it as only one line item, with an indication of the number of units of service given that day. 8-258 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions The IHCP reimburses for clinical diagnostic laboratory procedures, performed in a physician’s office, by an independent laboratory, or by a hospital laboratory for outpatients, on the basis of the following: • The lower of the submitted charge or the Medicare Lab Fee Schedule • The lower of the submitted charge or the RBRVS For procedures on the Medicare Fee Schedule that do not have Relative Value Units (RVUs), the IHCP reimburses based on the Medicare Clinical Laboratory Fee Schedule or manual pricing methodology, if a rate has not yet been established by Medicare. On the Medicare Fee Schedule, some procedures do not have RVUs because the procedure meets one of the following criteria: • Associated with special restrictions • Carrier-priced • Excluded from the definition of physician services • Excluded from the Medicare Fee Schedule • Noncovered by Medicare • Not valid for Medicare For laboratory procedures not covered by the Medicare Fee Schedule as not meeting the definition of physician-provided services, the IHCP reimburses from the Medicare Clinical Laboratory Fee Schedule. The IHCP reimburses through manual pricing until Medicare assigns a rate for codes for which Medicare has not yet established a specific rate, either in the Medicare Fee Schedule or in the Medicare Clinical Laboratory Fee Schedule. Clinical diagnostic laboratory services include all laboratory tests listed in codes 80048 through 89356, as well as some G, P, and Q codes listed in the HCPCS Level II Code book. Blood or blood products, blood testing, and tests involving physician interpretation are exceptions. When providers submit codes from the list of codes in Table 8.78 on the same claim form with codes corresponding to blood or blood products, the codes are not subject to pricing by the Medicare fee schedule. If providers submit the codes without charges for blood or blood products, the IHCP classifies the services as clinical diagnostic lab tests, subject to pricing by the Medicare fee schedule.

A physician typically performs the professional component of the lab procedure. The IHCP reimburses the physician for the professional component because the physician bills the appropriate CPT lab code along with modifier 26, professional component. When billing only the technical component, providers should append modifier TC, technical component, with the appropriate CPT lab code. When billing for professional and technical components of service, providers should use no modifiers. Providers should bill the appropriate lab code only. Look in the Federal Register under Relative Value Units and Related Information to see a list of lab codes billed using these modifiers. Hospital Outpatient Defined The IHCP defines hospital outpatient as a member who the hospital has not admitted as an inpatient but is registered in hospital records as an outpatient and receives services directly from the hospital. If personnel not employed by the hospital take a tissue sample, blood sample, or specimen and send it to the hospital for tests, the IHCP classifies the tests as nonpatient (rather than outpatient) hospital services, because the patient did not directly receive services from the hospital. Specimen Collection The IHCP allows a minimal fee for separate charges made by physicians, independent laboratories, or hospital laboratories for drawing or collecting specimens. The IHCP covers these services only when the provider draws a blood sample through venipuncture or collects a urine sample by catheterization. Providers must itemize specimen collection fees when billing for them. The IHCP allows only one charge per day for each patient for venipuncture. The IHCP allows a charge for catheterization for each patient encounter and does not limit this service per day. 8-260 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Handling Conveyance The IHCP allows a fee for physicians, chiropractors, and podiatrists for handling and conveying a specimen to a laboratory (405 IAC 5-18-2 c). The IHCP reimburses providers for no more than two conveyance fees (CPT procedure codes 99000 and 99001) on the same date of service. Providers can charge this only if the physician has an expense involved in conveyance. Lab Panels Organ or disease-oriented panels were developed to allow for coding of a group of tests. Providers are expected to bill the lab panel when all the tests listed within each panel are performed on the same date of service. When one or more of the tests within the panel are not performed on the same date of service, providers may bill each test individually. Providers may not bill for a panel and all the individual tests listed within that panel on the same day. However, tests performed in addition to those listed on the panel on the same date of service may be reported separately in addition to the panel code. Providers must follow CPT coding guidelines when reporting multiple panels. For example, providers cannot report 80048 with 80053 on the same date of service because all the same lab codes in 80048 are components of 80053. Interpretation of Clinical Laboratory Services The CMS has identified certain procedures as clinical lab tests that frequently require a laboratory physician to interpret. The physician can bill these codes with the 26 modifier. The IHCP covers consultative pathology services for clinical laboratory tests if the claim meets the following conditions: • The patient’s attending physician requested the service in writing. • The service relates to a test that lies outside the clinically significant normal or expected range in view of the condition of the patient. • The service results in a written narrative report in the patient’s medical record. • The service requires the exercise of medical judgment by the consulting physician. Hospice providers should note that they must not include costs for services, such as laboratory and Xrays, with the attending physician’s billed charges. The daily hospice care rates that the IHCP pays include these costs, and they are expressly the responsibility of the hospice provider. Breast Cancer Testing Providers should use the codes in Table 8.79 to bill HER2 protein over expression tests, HercepTest®, as an aid in assessment of patients who use trastuzumab, HERCEPTIN®. Table 8.79 – CPT Codes for HER2 Test CPT Code Description 88342 Immunohistochemistry, including tissue immunoperoxidase, each antibody 88365 Tissue in situ hybridization (e.g, FISH), each probe HER-2/neu Gene Detection Test, such as Oncor’s INFORM®, is an adjunct to existing clinical and pathological information and an aid to stratify breast cancer patients with a primary, invasive, or localized breast cancer, who are lymph node negative, for risk of recurrence or disease-related death. Providers use this test as a prognostic indicator and should use the codes in Table 8.80 to bill it. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-261 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Table 8.80 – CPT Codes for HER-2/neu Gene Detection Test CPT Code Description 83892 Molecular diagnostics; enzymatic digestion 88271 Molecular cytogenetics; DNA probe, each, for example, FISH 88274 Molecular cytogenetics; interphase in situ hybridization, analyze 25–99 cells.

(Either code 88274 or 88275 should be billed.) 88291 Cytogenetics and molecular cytogenetics, interpretation and report Billing Requirements and Prior Authorization Criteria for Genetic Testing for Breast and Ovarian Cancer The IHCP reimburses for genetic testing for breast and ovarian cancer (BRCA) 1 and BRCA 2 genetic testing when medically necessary, with prior authorization (PA) billed with the appropriate HCPCS codes shown in Table 8.81 and the appropriate ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes shown in Table 8.82. The IHCP limits HCPCS codes S3820, S3822, and S3823 to once per lifetime. If the IHCP has provided reimbursement for HCPCS code S3820, the IHCP will not reimburse S3822 or S3823 for that member because S3820 represents complete BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 gene sequence analysis. IHCP reimbursement is not available for BRCA testing reported with the HCPCS codes listed in Table 8.83. However, reimbursement is available for the codes listed in Table 8.83 for genetic testing related to other types of cancer, such as pancreatic carcinoma. The IHCP gives PA for genetic testing related to breast and ovarian cancer, using the HCPCS codes listed in Table 8.81 when medically necessary in the following circumstances. Providers must submit documentation with the PA request and must maintain it in the member’s medical record. • Clinically affected individuals (invasive breast cancer or ovarian cancer at any age) meeting at least one of the following criteria: - One or more first-degree (mother, father, sister, or daughter) or second-degree (aunt, uncle, grandmother, niece, or granddaughter) relatives with invasive breast cancer diagnosed before age 50 - One or more first- or second-degree relatives with ovarian cancer - One or more first- or second-degree relatives with male breast cancer • Individuals with a personal history of at least one of the following (no family history required): - Invasive breast cancer before age 50 - Ovarian cancer at any age - Invasive breast cancer and ovarian cancer at any age - Male breast cancer at any age • Individuals with a family member (related by blood) with a known BRCA 1 or BRCA 2 mutation • Individuals with Ashkenazi (Eastern European) Jewish ancestry with invasive breast cancer at any age, or meeting any of the criteria listed above 8-262 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions The IHCP considers BRCA testing of men with breast cancer medically necessary for either of the following indications: • To assess the man’s risk of recurrent breast cancer; or • To assess the breast cancer risk of a female member where the affected male is a first- or seconddegree blood relative of that member - The IHCP considers BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 testing to assess the risk of breast or prostate cancer in men without breast cancer to be not medically necessary. Table 8.81 – HCPCS Codes to Report Genetic Testing for Breast and Ovarian Cancer Diagnoses Only Code Description Comments S3820 Complete BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 gene sequence analysis for susceptibility to breast and ovarian cancer S3820 encompasses all the testing for all the genetic variations involving BRCA 1 and BRCA 2. Testing required is more extensive than required for the specific gene variations reported by S3822 and S3823. S3822 Single mutation analysis (in individual with a known BRCA 1 or BRCA 2 mutation in the family) for susceptibility to breast and ovarian cancer S3822 designates the test required for detection of BRCA gene mutation for an individual with a family member known to have BRCA 1 or BRCA 2 mutation. S3823 Three-mutation BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 analysis for susceptibility to breast and ovarian cancer in Ashkenazi individuals S3823 reports genetic testing for individuals of Ashkenazi Jewish descent. Because there are known to be fewer and more specific changes in this population group, the amount of testing required is significantly less than for the general population.

The IHCP covers some medical supplies and does not cover others. Providers use medical supplies primarily and customarily to serve a medical purpose, and medical supplies are generally not useful to a person in the absence of an illness or an injury. To the extent that the IHCP covers a medical supply item, it is a reimbursable service only when medically necessary. A physician or a dentist must prescribe all medical supplies and must document the need for such items. Covered medical supplies include, but are not limited to, antiseptics and solutions, bandages and 8-264 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions dressing supplies, gauze pads, catheters, incontinence supplies, irrigation supplies, diabetic supplies, ostomy supplies, and respiratory and tracheotomy supplies. The IHCP requires providers to submit claims for medical supplies on the paper CMS-1500 claim form or 837P transaction using HCPCS codes. Providers should send all claims for medical supplies to HP using HCPCS codes. The IHCP denies all claims submitted on the pharmacy form, using NDCs, Health Related Item (HRI) codes, Universal Package Codes (UPCs), or Product Identification Numbers (PINs). Reimbursement for medical supplies is equal to the lower of the provider’s submitted charges (usual and customary) or the Medicaid calculated allowable for the item. The Medicaid calculated allowable for an item is the statewide fee schedule amount. Providers must include their usual and customary charge for each medical supply item when submitting claims for reimbursement. Providers should not use the Medicaid calculated allowable for their billed charge unless the Medicaid calculated allowable is equal to the amount charged by the provider to the general public. Limitations on Coverage When providers include medical supplies in LTC facility reimbursement (nursing facilities, group homes, intermediate care facilities for the mentally retarded) or otherwise include them as part of reimbursement for a medical or surgical procedure, LTC providers must always include them as part of their NF per diem. Under no circumstances should a pharmacy, LTC facility, or any other provider separately bill such supplies to the program. This requirement includes all covered medical supplies that are included in the LTC provider’s per diem rate, even if the LTC facility does not include the cost of medical supplies in its cost report. The IHCP does not reimburse for medical supplies provided in quantities greater than a one-month supply for each calendar month, except when the manufacturer packages those supplies only in larger quantities. Medical supplies must be for a specific medical purpose, not incidental or general-purpose usage. All covered sterile water products, with the exception of those required for compounded prescriptions, are included in the nursing home per diem and are, therefore, not separately reimbursable. Covered sterile water products are billable with an NDC on the pharmacy claim form. Manually Priced Supplies For medical supplies that are billed with a nonspecific HCPCS code with a description such as unspecified, unclassified, or miscellaneous, the IHCP bases reimbursement on manual pricing. Payment for manually priced HCPCS codes, related to medical supplies, is specific to the item being billed. Providers must submit documentation supporting the cost of the item, including a listing of all materials. The IHCP uses the following guidelines to determine reimbursement: • If the provider submits an itemized sales invoice from the manufacturer listing all materials or supplies purchased and showing the price paid for individual items, the IHCP reimburses the claim at the billed amount, up to 30 percent above the invoice amount. The IHCP does not accept a manufacturer’s price list as proof of purchase price for this level of reimbursement. • If a provider submits retail price lists from the manufacturer, the IHCP reimburses the claim at 90 percent of the price on the manufacturer’s retail price list but cannot exceed the billed amount. • If the provider submits a copy of the provider’s own retail price list or an invoice from the provider’s own company that indicates the price that a provider charges the general public for Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-265 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions products or supplies, the IHCP reimburses the claim at 90 percent of the invoice or price list, not to exceed the billed amount. Providers must not bill more than their usual and customary charge for any item. All nonspecific HCPCS codes may be subject to retrospective review. Medicare Part B Crossover Claims Coverage and Billing Procedures Crossover claims filed with the IHCP must comply with IHCP billing rules. Therefore, providers must bill services on the appropriate claim form. There is no filing limit for paid Medicare crossover claims. Note: Providers should bill outpatient professional charges on the CMS-1500 or 837P. Always submit ambulatory surgery center charges on a UB-04 or 837I. FQHCs, hospital-based ambulance services, and independent RHCs submit claims to the Medicare intermediary on the UB-04 or 837I, but they must submit claims to the IHCP on the CMS-1500 or 837P. Providers must submit LTC facility Medicare charges for parenteral/enteral services and therapies to the IHCP on the UB-04 claim form or 837I transaction. Refer to the UB-04 Billing Instructions section of this chapter for instructions on completing a UB-04 crossover claim form. The CMS-1500 form must contain the combined total of the Medicare coinsurance, deductible, and psych reduction when applicable, in the left side of field 22, under the heading Code. Providers must submit the Medicare paid amount (actual dollar amount received from Medicare) in field 22 on the right side, under the heading Original Ref No. Additionally, in field 29, providers must enter only a total payment amount received from a TPL, if applicable. Do not include the Medicare paid amount or contract adjustment in field 29. The IHCP requires the Medicare Remittance Notice only for claims containing a zero paid amount by Medicare. Note: Providers should submit Medicare denials through the normal claims process, because the IHCP does not consider them crossover claims. Medicare/Medicaid Reimbursement Providers must be Medicare providers and accept assignment for a claim for dually eligible members to cross over. Detailed information about Medicare-Medicaid related reimbursement appears in Chapter 5 of this manual. Atypical providers must ensure that the Medicare provider number, per service location, by individual provider and billing provider, is on file with the HP Provider Enrollment Unit. Chapter 4 of this manual provides further information about provider enrollment. 8-266 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Mental Health Services Coverage and Billing Procedures Providers furnishing mental health services to members enrolled in Care Select must follow existing PA guidelines. Some mental health services are no longer carved out and providers must submit RBMC member claims to the member’s MCO for payment. Services that require PA furnished to members enrolled in RBMC must be prior-authorized by the MCO in accordance with the MCO guidelines. Refer to http://provider.indianamedicaid.com/provider-specific-information/managedcare/hoosier-healthwise.aspx. As stated in 405 IAC 5-20-8, the IHCP also allows direct reimbursement for outpatient mental health services provided by licensed physicians, psychiatric hospitals, psychiatric wings of acute care hospitals, outpatient mental health facilities, and psychologists endorsed as health services providers in psychology (HSPP). Outpatient mental health services rendered by or under supervision of a physician or HSPP are subject to the limitations in 405 IAC 5-25 and are subject to the following limitations. Subject to PA by the OMPP or its designee, the IHCP reimburses physician- or HSPP-directed outpatient mental health services for group, family, and individual psychotherapy when services are provided by one of the following mid-level practitioners: • Advanced practice nurse under IC 25-23-1-1(b)(3), who is a licensed, registered nurse with a master’s degree in nursing, with a major in psychiatric or mental health nursing from an accredited school of nursing • Licensed psychologist • Licensed independent practice school psychologist • Licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) • Licensed marriage and family therapist • Licensed mental health counselor • A person holding a master’s degree in social work, marital and family therapy, or mental health counseling These mid-level practitioners may not be separately enrolled as individual providers to receive direct reimbursement. Mid-level practitioners can be employed by an outpatient mental health facility, clinic, or physician, or HSPP enrolled in the IHCP. The IHCP reimburses for covered services rendered. The employer or supervising psychiatrist bills for the services. The IHCP reimburses for services provided by mid-level practitioners in an outpatient mental health facility when an HSPP supervises services. Mid-level practitioners who render services must bill using the rendering NPI of the supervising practitioner and the billing NPI of the outpatient mental health clinic or facility. An HSPP may certify the diagnosis or supervise the plan of treatment. Outpatient Mental Health The physician or HSPP is responsible for certifying the diagnosis and supervising the plan of treatment described as stated in 405 IAC 5-20-8 (3) (a) (b)). The physician or HSPP must be available for emergencies and must see the patient or review the information obtained by the mid-level practitioner within seven days of the intake process. The physician or HSPP must again see the patient or review the documentation to certify the treatment plan and specific treatment modalities at intervals not to exceed 90 days during a course of treatment. The physician must document all reviews in writing. A cosignature is not sufficient. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-267 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions The IHCP requires written evidence of physician or HSPP involvement and personal evaluation to document the member’s acute medical needs. If practicing independently, a physician or an HSPP must order therapy in writing. The IHCP requires PA for mental health services provided in an outpatient or office setting that exceed 20 units per member, per provider, per rolling 12-month period. Providers must attach a current plan of treatment and progress notes explaining the necessity and effectiveness of therapy to the PA form and available for audit purposes, according to 405 IAC 5-20-8 (4). The IHCP requires PA for all units of neuropsychology and psychological testing. This applies to CPT 96101 – psychological testing, 96110 – developmental testing, 96111 – developmental testing extended, and 96118 – neuropsychological testing battery. According to 405 IAC 5-20-8(5), a physician or HSPP must provide these services. According to 405 IAC 5-20-8 (10), reimbursement is available for one unit of psychiatric diagnostic interview, CPT codes 90801 or 90802, per member, per provider, per rolling 12-month period. All additional units of psychiatric diagnostic interviews require prior authorization, except two units are allowed every rolling 12-month period when the recipient is separately evaluated by both the physician or HSPP and a mid-level practitioner. The following HCPCS codes in combination are subject to 20 units per member, per provider, per rolling 12-month period: • 90801–90802 • 90804–90815 • 90845–90857 • 96151–96153 The IHCP does not cover the following services: • Biofeedback • Broken or missed appointments • Day care • Hypnosis • Partial hospitalization, except as set in 405 IAC 5-21 CPT codes 90805, 90807, 90809, 90811, 90813, and 90815 for psychotherapy with medical evaluation and management, and CPT code 90862 for pharmacological management are medical services. Therefore, the IHCP does not reimburse clinical social workers, clinical psychologists, or any midlevel practitioners (excluding nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists) for these codes. For all outpatient services rendered, providers must identify and itemize services rendered on the CMS1500. The medical record documentation must identify the services and the length of time of each therapy session. Providers must make this information available for audit purposes. Providers should use the rendering NPI of the supervising practitioner (physician or HSPP) to bill psychiatric and clinical nurse specialist services. Providers must use these modifiers with the appropriate procedure code, which are as follows: • AH – Services provided by a clinical psychologist • AJ – Services provided by a clinical social worker • HE in conjunction with SA – Services provided by a nurse practitioner or clinical nurse specialist 8-268 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions • HE – Services provided by any other mid-level practitioner as addressed in the 405 IAC 5-20-8 (10) • HW – Medicaid Rehabilitation Option (MRO) services • SA – NP/CNS in a nonmental health arena For claims that providers bill for mid-level practitioner services and bill with the modifiers noted – except modifiers SA and HW, which are informational and do not impact reimbursement – the IHCP reimburses at 75 percent of the IHCP allowed amount for the procedure code identified. HSPPs do not need to use the modifier, and the IHCP reimburses them at 100 percent of the RBRVS fee. Place the modifiers in field 24D of the CMS-1500 claim form. CMHCs must continue to use the HW modifier to denote MRO services in addition to the modifiers listed above that identify the qualifications or the individual rendering the service. Place the modifiers in field 24D of the CMS-1500 claim form. Additional information about MRO services is published in the MRO Provider Manual. Package C The IHCP reimburses for 30 visits per member, per rolling calendar year for Package C members. The IHCP may cover an additional 20 visits with PA for a maximum of 50 visits per year. Medicaid Rehabilitation Option Services Medicaid Rehabilitation Option Services are clinical mental health services that the IHCP covers for individuals, families, or groups living in the community who need aid intermittently for emotional disturbances or mental illness. The IHCP reimburses for the following MRO, outpatient mental health services: • Assertive Community Treatment • Case management services • Conjoint counseling or psychotherapy • Crisis intervention • Diagnostic assessment and prehospitalization screening • Family counseling or psychotherapy • Group counseling or psychotherapy • Group training in activities of daily living • Individual counseling or psychotherapy • Medication or somatic treatment • Partial hospitalization • Prehospitalization screening • Training in activities in daily living As stated in 405 IAC 5-21, the IHCP reimburses for community mental health services for members with mental illness when the provider for those services is an enrolled mental health center that meets applicable federal, state, and local laws concerning the operation of CMHCs. Community Medicaid Rehabilitation Services include outpatient mental healthcare for the seriously mentally ill or seriously emotionally disturbed, partial hospitalization services, and case management services. Outpatient Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-269 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions mental health services may include clinical attention in the member’s home, workplace, mental health facility, emergency department, or wherever needed. A qualified mental health professional must render these services as outlined in 405 IAC 5-21-1-C-(1-5). Coverage of Mental Health Codes for Children’s Health Insurance Program Effective January 1, 2010, for dates of service on or after January 1, 2010, the IHCP will reimburse for mental health services, including Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility (PRTF) and Medicaid Rehabilitation Option (MRO) services under Children’s Health Insurance Plan (CHIP, or Package C). This change comes as a result of Senate Enrolled Act 102. Prior authorization (PA) is required for any codes currently requiring PA for fee-for-service beneficiaries. Providers may submit claims for services that have been rendered on or after January 1, 2010. Table 8.85 shows codes for covered services rendered and billed under CHIP. The same limits and restrictions that apply to these codes under Medicaid apply to these codes covered under CHIP (Package C).

96155 Description Health and behavior intervention, each 15 minutes, face-toface; family (without the patient present) Assertive Community Treatment Service Assertive community treatment (ACT) is an intensive mental health service for members discharged from a hospital after multiple or extended stays, or who are difficult to engage in treatment. An interdisciplinary team provides ACT services as defined under 440 IAC 5.2-2-3, and a physician must order the services. Members receiving this intensive level of community support will experience increased community tenure and decreased frequency or length of hospitalization or crisis services. The IHCP requires PA for ACT services that it covers. Before admission to an approved ACT team under 440 IAC 5.2-2-3, the ACT team psychiatrist must document and review an assessment of the member’s current medical status, psychiatric history, status at time of consideration for ACT services, and treatment plan goals. Refer to Chapter 6 of this manual for additional information about prior authorization. The IHCP requires development of an individual treatment plan that includes: medication administering and monitoring; self medication monitoring; crisis assessment and intervention; symptom assessment, management, and individual supportive therapy; substance abuse training and counseling; psychosocial rehabilitation and skill development; personal, social, and interpersonal skill training; and coordination with case management, consultation, and psycho-educational support for individuals and their families provided on behalf of the ACT member. Services must be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week with emergency response coverage, including availability of a psychiatrist. Members receiving ACT services must not attend traditional partial hospitalization programs. To meet the service standard, the ACT team must meet and discuss the services rendered, scheduled services, and progress of ACT members on a daily basis during the five-day work week. ACT teams should have a procedure in place to track daily team meeting attendance and client tracking (for example, cardex system, minutes, and so forth). Providers may submit claims for ACT services using the CMS-1500 paper claim or HIPAA-compliant electronic 837P claim. Providers may bill the IHCP for one unit of ACT service daily per approved member, provided that the ACT team meets the ACT service standard. Providers must use HCPCS level II code H0040 – ACT services, per diem and modifier HW – State mental health agency funded to bill ACT services at 100 percent of the Medicaid allowable amount. One unit of ACT service equals one 24-hour day. The ACT team psychiatrist or an HSPP who is an ACT team member must be present at the daily team meeting for the IHCP to reimburse the service code at 100 percent. When the ACT team psychiatrist or HSPP is not in attendance at the daily team meeting, the mid-level practitioner is reimbursed at 75 percent. All appropriate modifiers must be used for correct billing. Follow the billing and modifier guidelines described in this chapter for correct billing guidelines for mid-level practitioner services. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-275 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Note: The IHCP restricts MRO services to providers enrolled as Community Mental Health Centers who also meet the requirements for approval by the Division of Mental Health under IC 12-29 in accordance with 440 IAC 4. MRO enrolled providers must refer to the separate MRO Provider Manual for detailed eligibility, billing, and reimbursement information. Chapter 4 of this manual provides more information. Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facilities Coverage Provisions The IHCP reimburses for medically necessary services provided to children younger than 21 years old in a psychiatric residential treatment facility (PRTF). The IHCP also reimburses for children younger than 22 years old who began receiving PRTF services immediately before their 21st birthday. All services require prior authorization by the appropriate MCO or CMO. Note: The PRTF Model Attestation Letter Addendum has been updated to include State Survey Provider ID so that the ISDH and the OMPP can track facilities. The ISDH issues a State Survey Provider ID after reviewing the PRTF Attestation Form. Because the State Survey Provider ID is used for internal purposes, the provider should disregard this field. Additional information can be found in Chapter 4 of this manual. Managed Care Considerations Risk-based Managed Care The IHCP carves out PRTF services from the risk-based MCOs’ financial responsibility. However, MCOs must provide care coordination services and associated services related to PRTF services. These services are subject to the PA and reimbursement policies of the member’s managed care plan. Providers should verify the member’s eligibility at initial admission on the 1st and 15th of the month to determine the member’s current managed care eligibility. Care Select PRTF services do not require certification from the primary medical provider (PMP) Care Select. The appropriate CMO provides PA for PRTF placement, and providers bill claims to the IHCP. Services rendered outside the PRTF may be subject to PMP certification and PA requirements. Providers should verify the member’s eligibility before rendering services and also verify on the 1st and 15th of each month to confirm the member’s current care management eligibility. Hoosier Healthwise Package C Hoosier Healthwise Package C does not cover PRTF services. Leave Days The days of care that can be billed to the IHCP for a member admitted to a PRTF shall be expressed in units of full days. A day consists of 24 hours beginning at midnight and ending 24 hours later at midnight. For IHCP billing purposes, PRTFs are expected to follow the midnight-to-midnight method when reporting days of care for members, even if the health facility uses a different definition of a day for statistical or other purposes. 8-276 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Although it is not mandatory for facilities to reserve beds, Medicaid will reimburse for reserving beds for recipients at one-half the regular customary per diem rate, provided that criteria set forth is met for medical and therapeutic leave. These services are available to Medicaid members younger than 21 years old. In no instance will the IHCP reimburse a PRTF for reserving beds for Medicaid members when the facility has an occupancy rate of less than 90 percent. The occupancy rate shall be determined by dividing the total number of residents in licensed beds (excluding residential beds) in the psychiatric treatment facility taken from the midnight census as of the day that a Medicaid recipient takes a leave of absence, by the total number of licensed PRTF beds (excluding residential beds) in the PRTF. Medical Leave Days For members younger than 21 years old, the IHCP reimburses for medical leave days in a PRTF at one-half the regular customary per diem rate when the provider meets all the following conditions: • The physician orders hospitalization for treatment of an acute condition that cannot be treated in the PRTF. • The total length of time allowed for payment of a reserved bed in a PRTF for a single hospital stay is four consecutive days. If the member requires hospitalization longer than four consecutive days, the PRTF must discharge the member. • The PRTF must maintain a physician’s order for the hospitalization in the member’s file. • The facility has an occupancy rate of at least 90 percent. In no instance does the IHCP reimburse a PRTF for reserving beds for Medicaid members when the facility has an occupancy rate of less than 90 percent. Documentation will be subject to retrospective review. Therapeutic Leave Days For members younger than 21 years old, the IHCP reimburses for therapeutic leave days in a PRTF at one-half the regular customary per diem rate when the provider meets all the following conditions: • A leave of absence must be for therapeutic reasons as prescribed by the attending physician and as indicated in the member’s plan of care. • In a PRTF, the total length of time allotted for therapeutic leaves in any calendar year is 14 days per member. If the member is absent from the PRTF for more than 14 days per year, the IHCP makes no further reimbursement in that year for reserving a bed for therapeutic leave for that member. Therapeutic leave days do not have to be consecutive. • The facility must maintain a physician’s order for therapeutic leave in the member’s file. • The facility must have an occupancy rate of at least 90 percent. In no instance does the IHCP reimburse a PRTF for reserving beds for Medicaid members when the facility has an occupancy rate of less than 90 percent. Documentation is subject to retrospective review. Providers must submit claims for PRTF services on the CMS-1500 claim form or the 837P electronic transaction. PRTF services are reimbursed on a per diem basis. PRTF providers may bill a single date of service per detail, with consecutive dates of service per individual CMS-1500 claim form. The PRTF per diem does not include pharmaceutical supplies and physician services. The per diem rate includes the cost of all IHCP-covered psychiatric services provided to members residing in a PRTF, as well as the cost for IHCP-covered services not related to the member’s psychiatric condition if such services are performed at the PRTF. The IHCP makes separate reimbursement available only in instances where IHCP-covered services, not related to the member’s psychiatric condition, are unavailable at the PRTF and are performed at a location other than the PRTF. The PRTF per diem does not include pharmaceutical supplies and physician services, and the IHCP pays for them separately Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-277 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions from the PRTF per diem rate. These services are subject to provisions set forth in 405 IAC 5-24 and 405 IAC 5-25 respectively. Providers should use the following codes when billing for these services included in the PRTF per diem: • T2048 – For per diem services (behavioral health, long-term care residential, or nonacute care in a residential treatment facility where the stay is typically longer than 30 days). • T2048 U1 – For medical leave (behavioral health, long-term care residential, nonacute care in a residential treatment facility where the stay is typically longer than 30 days). Medical leave days are limited to four. • T2048 U2 – For therapeutic leave (behavioral health, long-term care residential, nonacute care in a residential treatment facility where the stay is typically longer than 30 days). Therapeutic leave days are limited to 14. Managed Care Considerations Risk-based Managed Care The 2007 Hoosier Healthwise MCO Procurement project carved in most behavioral health services to the RBMC program. Beginning with dates of service of January 1, 2007, services rendered by providers enrolled in the IHCP with the following provider specialties are the responsibility of the MCO: • 011 – Freestanding Psychiatric Hospital • 110 – Outpatient Mental Health Clinic • 111 – Community Mental Health Center • 112 – Psychologist • 113 – Certified Psychologist • 114 – Health Services Providers in Psychology • 115 – Certified Clinical Social Worker • 116 – Certified Social Worker • 117 – Psychiatric Nurse • 339 – Psychiatrist The carved-in behavioral health services rendered by the mental health provider specialties listed above should be billed directly to the applicable Behavioral Health Organization (BHO) subcontracted by the MCO. Behavioral health services rendered by nonmental health provider specialties should be billed to the applicable MCO. The following mental health services remain carved out of the RBMC program and are paid by HP on the fee-for-service methodology: • PRTF services rendered by a provider enrolled in the IHCP program with a specialty of 034. The MCOs retain responsibility for services outside the PRTF, including transportation, pharmacy, and other related healthcare services. MCOs are also responsible for care coordination of members receiving PRTF services. PRTF services are not covered for Package C members. • MRO services rendered by provider specialty 111 – Community Mental Health Center to individuals, families, or groups living in the community who need aid intermittently for emotional 8-278 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions disturbances or mental illness. MRO services include outpatient mental health services, partial hospitalization, case management, and Assertive Community Treatment. As with other carved-out services, the MCO remains responsible for services that may be related to the PRTF or MRO services, including but not limited to care coordination, transportation, and pharmacy services. The following services remain excluded from the Hoosier Healthwise program, and members are disenrolled from managed care upon qualification for such services: • Services in an ICF/MR • Inpatient services in a state psychiatric hospital, which are not Medicaid services, but are provided under the State’s 590 program Screening and Brief Intervention Services Beginning October 1, 2008, the IHCP began reimbursing providers for screening and brief intervention (SBI) services. SBI identifies and intervenes with individuals who are at risk for substance abuserelated problems or injuries. SBI services use established systems, such as trauma centers, emergency rooms, community clinics, and school clinics, to screen patients who are at risk for substance abuse and, if necessary, provide the patients with brief interventions or referrals to appropriate treatment. The IHCP reimburses providers when they bill procedure codes 99408 or 99409. The descriptions for the procedure codes are listed in Table 8.86. Table 8.86 – Screening and Brief Intervention Service Procedure Codes Code Description 99408 Alcohol and/or substance abuse structured screening and brief intervention services, 15-30 minutes 99409 Alcohol and/or substance abuse structured screening and brief intervention services, greater than 30 minutes The new CPT® codes were developed by the American Medical Association (AMA) to make it possible for the healthcare system to “efficiently report screening services for drug and alcohol abuse.” Providers can bill procedure code 99408 or 99409 only after an individual has been screened for alcohol or drug abuse by a healthcare professional. SBI services currently do not require prior authorization. Procedure codes 99408 and 99409 are limited to one structured screening and brief intervention per individual, every three years, when billed by the same provider. This does not count toward the number of annual office visits allowed per year for an individual. Providers can submit claims for services rendered for dates of service beginning October 1, 2008. Mid-Level Practitioner Services Coverage and Billing Procedures The proper billing procedures for billing nurse practitioner and physician assistant services are as follows: • Nurse Practitioners – The IHCP reimburses independently practicing nurse practitioners at 75 percent of the rate on file. The nurse practitioner must enter his or her rendering NPI number in Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-279 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions field 24J of the CMS-1500. The billing NPI must be entered in field 33a on the CMS-1500 claim form. • Nurse practitioners not individually enrolled in the IHCP, and clinical nurse specialists employed by physicians in a physician-directed group or clinic, bill services with the SA modifier and the physician rendering NPI in fields 24J of the CMS-1500. The billing NPI must be entered in field 33a on the CMS-1500 claim form. The IHCP reimburses them at 100 percent of the Medicaidallowed amount. • Nurse practitioners with an individual LPI and NPI and who are employed by a physician, should bill using their rendering NPI in field 24J of the CMS-1500. The NPI must be entered in field 33a on the CMS-1500 claim form. The IHCP reimburses them at 100 percent of the Medicaid allowed amount. • Providers cannot bill separately for nurse practitioner services in outpatient hospital settings and should include these services in the hospital outpatient reimbursement rate. • Physician Assistants –Providers should bill physician assistant services with the HN, bachelors degree or HO, masters degree modifier applicable to the level of education of the physician assistant. The physician rendering NPI must be entered in field 24J of the CMS-1500. The physician billing NPI must be entered in field 33a on the CMS-1500 claim form. The IHCP reimburses them at 100 percent of the Medicaid allowed amount. Physician assistants are not separately enrolled in the IHCP. However, when a physician assistant provides assistant surgeon services, the provider should use modifier AS instead of the HN or HO modifier. Reimbursement for the assistant at surgery is 20 percent of the rate on file. Providers should place modifiers in field 24D, under the modifier heading on the CMS-1500 claim form. Smoking Cessation Treatment Services Coverage and Billing Procedures Eligible Providers and Practitioners Practitioners eligible to provide smoking cessation treatment services, but not currently enrolled as IHCP providers, should contact HP Provider Enrollment at 1-877-707-5750 to request a provider enrollment application. Eligible practitioners, such as pharmacists who work for or own IHCP-enrolled pharmacies, bill for treatment services rendered through the enrolled entity where services are provided. Physician assistants, registered nurses, and psychologists who are not HSPPs bill for counseling services rendered through the enrolled entity through which services are provided. Treatment services must be prescribed by a licensed practitioner within the scope of license under Indiana law. The IHCP reimburses for smoking cessation treatment services rendered by the following licensed practitioners participating in the IHCP: • Nurse practitioner • Pharmacist • Physician • Physician’s assistant • Psychologist • Registered nurse • Dentist 8-280 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions The following practitioners cannot obtain an IHCP rendering NPI number and must bill under the supervising practitioner’s NPI number: • Physician assistant • Psychologist • Registered nurse Reimbursement The IHCP makes reimbursement for smoking cessation available for one 12-week course of treatment per member per calendar year. Treatment may include prescription of any combination of smoking cessation products and counseling. Providers can prescribe one or more modalities of treatment. Providers must include counseling in any combination of treatment. Providers must order smoking cessation treatment services for the IHCP to reimburse for the services. Practitioners ordering smoking cessation services should maintain documentation about the order in the same manner used for other covered services. The IHCP does not require PA for reimbursement for smoking cessation products or counseling. Providers of smoking cessation treatment services must obtain PMP certification for Hoosier Healthwise and Care Select enrollees. Pharmacy Providers The IHCP reimburses pharmacy providers for smoking cessation products when a licensed practitioner prescribes them within the scope of the practitioner’s license under Indiana law. For the pharmacy to be reimbursed by the IHCP for over-the-counter smoking cessation products, a licensed practitioner must prescribe them. The practitioner must prescribe all smoking cessation products for use, along with counseling, within the 12-week treatment time frame. There is a limit of 84 days of smoking cessation therapy in 365 calendar days. Pharmacies should bill for reimbursement according to the normal procedures. Note: Only patients who agree to participate in smoking cessation counseling may receive prescriptions for smoking cessation products. The prescribing practitioner may want to have the patient sign a commitment to establish a “quit date” and to participate in counseling as the first step in smoking cessation treatment. A prescription for such products serves as documentation that the prescribing practitioner has prescribed or obtained assurance from the patient that counseling occurs concurrently with the receipt of smoking cessation products. Smoking Cessation Products The list of smoking cessation products that the IHCP covers includes, but is not limited to, the following: • Sustained release buproprion products • Varenicline tartrate tablets • Nicotine replacement drug products, such as a patch, gum, or inhaler Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-281 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Counseling When providers and practitioners furnish a service to the general public at no charge, including smoking cessation counseling services, they cannot receive IHCP reimbursement for that service. The SUR Department closely monitors adherence to this program limitation. Ordering and rendering practitioners must maintain sufficient documentation of respective functions to substantiate the medical necessity of the service rendered and to substantiate the provision of the service itself; this requirement is consistent with existing IHCP policies and regulations. Providers or practitioners of counseling services must bill only on the CMS-1500 or 837P using procedure code S9075 – Smoking cessation treatment, with a primary diagnosis code of 305.1 – Tobacco use disorder. Note: Providers and practitioners must bill the usual and customary charge for the units of service rendered, and the IHCP calculates the final reimbursement amount. One unit of S9075 is 15 minutes of service. Providers should not round up to the nearest 15 minutes. Providers must perform counseling for a minimum of 30 minutes (two units) and a maximum of 150 minutes (10 units) within the 12 weeks. Providers must bill counseling in 15-minute increments. Newborn Services Coverage and Billing Procedures Newborn Blood Screening Indiana law requires newborn blood screening tests for at least eight conditions for every infant before discharge from the hospital. IC 16-41-17-2(c) identifies religious belief exception from this requirement. The hospital obtains a blood sample from the infant, even if the sample is taken at less than 48 hours, which is the time needed to obtain valid test results. The newborn screening test screens for the following: • Galactosemia • Hemoglobinopathies, including sickle cell anemia • Homocystinuria • Hypothyroidism • Maple syrup urine disease • Phenylketonuria (PKU) • Congenital adrenal hyperplasia • Biotinidase deficiency The hospital collects all blood samples on a filter paper card that must also contain information to identify the infant, the physician, the time of birth, the time of first feeding, and the time of the blood draw. The hospital sends the blood sample to the Indiana University (IU) Laboratory. 8-282 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions The IU Laboratory has a contract with the ISDH to perform laboratory analysis for newborn screening. Providers using laboratories other than the IU Laboratory to perform newborn screening analysis must discontinue the practice. To ensure that the IU Laboratory performs all newborn screening, the ISDH must coordinate all newborn screening. Providers must first determine whether IU Laboratory has obtained valid newborn screening test results for the infant. IU Laboratory results can be verified by calling 1-800-245-9137 or (317) 4916625 or (317) 491-6678. If IU Laboratory has obtained a valid test and the results are normal, the IHCP requires no further testing. If the laboratory needs to rescreen due to invalid or abnormal results, the provider must call the ISDH at 1-800-761-1271, extension 1250, to work out the best method of accomplishing the rescreening. Because hospitals are more frequently releasing newborns prior to the 48 hours needed to obtain valid newborn screen results, an increasing number of newborns require a second screen. Providers ask families to bring the newborn back to the birth hospital as an outpatient, or the hospital requests that a nurse make a follow-up visit to obtain the sample for newborn screening. In either case, the possibility arises that the hospital could bill separately for newborn screening that is already included in the DRG that the IHCP pays for the newborn hospitalization. The IHCP does not require HealthWatch/EPSDT providers to report newborn screening on the CMS1500 or 837P. The IHCP does not permit hospitals to bill separately for newborn screening. The IHCP pays the newborn hospitalization under the DRG that includes the newborn screening. Newborns should be screened at the birth hospital or the hospital of closest proximity. To avoid being charged by the IU Laboratory for a second screen, a hospital screening a newborn who was born in another Indiana hospital must indicate the name of the birth hospital on the filter paper card. If the newborn’s name or birth date has been changed, the hospital must include the original name and date of birth in the information sent to the IU Laboratory to facilitate a match and avoid a charge by the lab. Note: A child born to a woman eligible for pregnancy and urgent care only is categorically eligible at birth for full IHCP coverage, at least for the month of birth. The child’s claims must have the child’s RID number. Newborn Hearing Screening Indiana legislation mandates that every infant shall be given a physiologic hearing screening examination at the earliest feasible time for the detection of hearing impairments. The IHCP includes the cost of this screening in the IHCP DRG reimbursement rate that includes the newborn’s hospitalization. The IHCP does not allow hospitals to bill separately for initial newborn screening. Newborns must be screened at the birth hospital before the infant is discharged. Newborns who require further evaluation should be referred to First Steps. Refer to this Web site for contact information: http://www.in.gov/fssa/ddrs/2633.htm. Providers who deliver newborns not hospitalized at birth, at locations other than in the hospital, may use the appropriate CPT codes to bill for the newborn hearing screening. Use CPT code 92585 for auditory evoked potentials for evoked response audiometry and testing of the central nervous system, or evoked auditory brainstem responses (ABR). Use CPT code 92587 for evoked otoacoustic emissions (OAE); limited, single stimulus level, either transient or distortion products, or OAE. For any follow-up diagnostic testing that results from detection of possible audiological impairment via the newborn screening process, providers should bill in the same manner that they bill other audiological testing. Providers should obtain PA if applicable. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-283 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Presumptive Eligibility – Package P Presumptive Eligibility (PE) provides coverage to low-income pregnant women through a simplified application process. Presumptive Eligibility covers most pregnancy-related outpatient services while the Medicaid application process is completed. Coverage begins on the date a qualified provider (QP) determines the woman presumptively eligible using the process outlined in the Qualified Provider Presumptive Eligibility Manual. The woman’s Medicaid eligibility determination will be subsequently completed by the Division of Family Resources (DFR). Failure on behalf of the patient to cooperate with DFR to complete the Medicaid application process will result in termination of PE benefits. PE does not cover hospice, long-term care, inpatient care, labor and delivery services, abortion services, postpartum services, sterilization, and services unrelated to the pregnancy or birth outcome. These services, if determined to be pregnancy-related, may be covered if the woman is later determined eligible for Hoosier Healthwise benefits. Presumptive Eligibility Requirements To be eligible for presumptive eligibility, a pregnant woman must: • Be pregnant, as verified by a professionally administered pregnancy test • Not be a current Medicaid member • Be an Indiana resident • Be a U.S. citizen or a qualified noncitizen (defined in the Qualified Provider Presumptive Eligibility Manual) • Not be currently incarcerated • Have gross family income less than 200 percent of the federal poverty level Qualified Provider Only a QP or designee can make a determination of pregnancy for PE. A QP is a provider that meets the following criteria: 1. Enrolled as a provider in the IHCP 2. Capable of verifying pregnancy via a professionally administered pregnancy test (homeadministered tests do not meet this requirement) 3. Must attend a Qualified Provider training session provided by the Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) or designee 4. Currently provide outpatient hospital, rural health clinic, or clinic services 5. Must have access to a printer, fax machine, and Web interChange Providers must allow PE applicants to use an office telephone to facilitate the PE and Hoosier Healthwise enrollment process. Billing Procedures Submit Presumptive Eligibility claims to the appropriate MCO as selected by the patient and/or HP fee-for-service claims. Covered PE services are similar to Package B services, except for the limited diagnosis listing below. More information about billing for Obstetrical Services and Package B is found within this chapter. Contact information for the MCOs can be found in Chapter 1 of this manual. Qualified providers follow general billing directions for completing the CMS-1500 claim form. 8-284 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health

Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Obstetrical Services Coverage and Billing Procedures Policies for the following pregnancy-related services are presented in this subsection: • Antepartum care policy • Other outpatient office visits • Normal pregnancy • High-risk pregnancy • Pregnancy services billing procedures • Hoosier Healthwise Package B – Pregnancy and Urgent Care Only Antepartum Care Policy To encourage comprehensive, timely, and appropriate antepartum care, providers must indicate the date of last menstrual period (LMP) in field 14 on the CMS-1500 (or Last Menstrual Period Date, Data Element 1251 on the 837P), enter the appropriate diagnosis codes in field 21 of the CMS-1500, and refer to the date of LMP in field 24E on the CMS-1500 for these pregnancy-related services. The IHCP reimburses up to 14 visits for normal antepartum care, one visit more than the 13 visits recommended by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). The IHCP reimburses providers for the following number of visits in a normal pregnancy: • Three visits in trimester one • Three visits in trimester two • Eight visits in trimester three Billing for Antepartum Visits Providers should bill antepartum care for pregnant members separately from the delivery and postpartum visits. Providers must individually list each antepartum visit on the CMS-1500 or 837P. Providers can submit claims after each individual visit or at the end of the respective trimester. Bill the required antepartum tests and screenings for each trimester along with the trimester visits. Bill antepartum services within a trimester within 30 days of the end of the trimester. Providers should bill each antepartum visit separately using CPT procedure codes 59425 or 59426. Submit visits four through six with the procedure code 59425 at each visit. Submit the seventh, and all subsequent visits, with procedure code 59426 at each visit. Providers may use a new or established patient E/M code, 99201–99215, for the first through third antepartum visits to accommodate the greater amount of work involved with each visit. However, providers should use the appropriate antepartum care code to bill all subsequent antepartum visits. If providers report an E/M code for the first visit, they must use the appropriate trimester modifier and expected date of delivery. To identify antepartum visits in each trimester, providers must bill one of the following modifiers in conjunction with CPT procedure code 59425, 59426, or 99201-99215 (if used for the first antepartum visit) with each specific date of service. Place the modifier following the CPT code in field 24D of the CMS-1500. Table 8.88 lists modifiers for antepartum visits. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-291 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Use the modifiers in Table 8.88, in conjunction with 59425 and 59426, to denote the appropriate trimester. Table 8.88 – Modifiers – Antepartum Visits Modifier Description U1 Trimester one – 0 through 14 weeks, 0 days U2 Trimester two – 14 weeks, one day through 28 weeks, 0 days U3 Trimester three – 28 weeks, one day, through delivery Note: The IHCP allows up to eight antepartum visits during the third trimester for a normal pregnancy, and providers can bill them along with delivery and postpartum services on the same CMS-1500 claim form or 837P transaction. Antepartum Tests and Screenings Schedule In addition to the schedule for antepartum visits, the OMPP has developed a schedule of tests and screenings highly recommended for pregnant members within each respective trimester. Providers should render other tests and screenings, such as those defined as optional, only when the person providing the service determines that the procedure is necessary. Providers can bill the tests and screenings with the appropriate antepartum care visit code on the same CMS-1500 or 837P transaction. The trimester schedules in Table 8.89 are uniform with standards established by the ACOG and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).

Once logged in, complete the following steps: 1. Select the Eligibility Inquiry function to verify the member’s eligibility. 2. On the Eligibility Inquiry screen, select the Go To NOP button to complete and submit the online form. Providers may also complete a hard-copy NOP by selecting the Print Blank NOP button. Only NOPs submitted online are reimbursable. 3. Web interChange will check for potential duplicate NOPs. If a duplicate is identified, the recognized provider will be asked to provide a reason explaining why the new NOP is not a duplicate. The recognized provider can choose from three reasons related to the prior pregnancy: (1) member abortion, (2) member preterm delivery, or (3) member miscarriage. The provider can continue the process without identifying a reason; however, the duplicate NOP will not be reimbursed. 4. The NOP can only be submitted and billed for a woman enrolled in Hoosier Healthwise risk-based managed care. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-295 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions 5. The recognized provider must submit the NOP within five calendar days from the date of the risk assessment to be reimbursed. NOPs submitted more than five days from the date of the risk assessment are not reimbursed For more information on NOP, see the NOP FAQs at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com/providerspecific-information/managed-care/notification-of-pregnancy-(nop).aspx. Billing 1. Providers may receive $60 for one NOP per member, per pregnancy. Note: Duplicate NOPs, those for the same woman and the same pregnancy, do not qualify for the $60 reimbursement. Only one NOP per member, per pregnancy is eligible for reimbursement. Recognized providers will receive a systematic message if the NOP appears to be a duplicate. 2. To be eligible for reimbursement the NOP must: - Be submitted within five calendar days of the date of service to be reimbursed. The date of service is the date the member risk assessment is completed by the recognized provider. - Be completed and submitted prior to 30 weeks of gestation. Salivary Estriol Test for Preterm Labor Risk Assessment The salivary estriol test for preterm labor risk assessment gives the provider additional information to assess the risk for preterm delivery and allows the provider to take steps to treat the patient, even when the patient does not appear to be a high risk by traditional assessment methods. Patients who may be currently missed by traditional risk assessment can be identified and treated, decreasing the chance of premature delivery and the medical impact prematurity entails. The IHCP does not require PA for the salivary estriol test. Table 8.90 shows the ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes that support medical necessity of this test. Table 8.90 – ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Codes for Salivary Estriol Test Diagnosis Code Description V23.2 Pregnancy with history of abortion V23.4 Pregnancy with other poor obstetric history V23.8 Other high-risk pregnancy 658.9 Unspecified 640.9 Unspecified hemorrhage in early pregnancy (with V23.8) 644.0 Threatened premature labor 644.03 Threatened premature labor, antepartum condition, or complication 644.13 Other threatened labor, antepartum condition or complication 654.50 Cervical incompetence 654.53 Cervical incompetence, antepartum condition or complication 654.60 Other congenital or acquired abnormality of cervix; unspecified as to episode of care 8-296 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Diagnosis Code Description 654.63 Other congenital or acquired abnormality of cervix; antepartum condition or complication 621.0 through 621.9 Disorders of uterus, not elsewhere classified The ordering physician must have supporting documentation in the patient’s medical record to support the medical necessity of any tests ordered. Note: Salivary estriol tests are indicated for use in singleton pregnancies. Billing Instructions Providers must bill the salivary estriol test using the code S3652, one unit per test. The test is appropriate for use between gestational ages 22 to 35 weeks, and providers can use it every one to two weeks. The physician’s test order and the claim must indicate modifier U2, second trimester, or Modifier U3, third trimester. The pregnancy series includes multiple tests during the third trimester of pregnancy. Providers must not bill the salivary estriol test when providing home tocolytic therapy using codes S9349, 99601, or 99602. The IHCP closely monitors use of the salivary estriol test for appropriateness of use. Sonography The IHCP reimburses for sonography performed during pregnancy when warranted by one or more of the following conditions: • Early diagnosis of ectopic or molar pregnancy • Fetal age determination if necessitated by the following: - Discrepancy in size versus fetal age - Lack of fetal growth or suspected fetal death - Fetal postmaturity syndrome - Guide for amniocentesis - Placental localization associated with abnormal bleeding - Polyhydramnios or oligohydramnios - Suspected multiple births - Suspected congenital anomaly The IHCP reimburses for sonography for fetal age determination prior to therapeutic, nonelective, abortions when the age of the fetus cannot be determined by the patient’s history and physical examination in the case of fetal demise or for missed abortion. The information may also be essential for the selection of the abortion method when the member is considering a procedure and the conditions meet the requirements of IC 16-10-3-3 for an elective abortion. Echography The IHCP does not reimburse for routine echographies. A diagnosis of normal pregnancy does not explain the reason for the echography. Documentation in the patient’s medical record must substantiate the medical need for the echography. Echographies performed to detect fetal malformations or intrauterine growth retardation should list an ICD-9-CM code from the V22 series as the primary diagnosis and an ICD-9-CM diagnosis code from the V28 series, antenatal screening as the secondary Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-297 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions diagnosis. Pregnancy-related echographies billed without a secondary diagnosis to support medical necessity of the echography are subject to recoupment. The secondary codes are as follows: • V28.3 – Screening for malformation using ultrasonics • V28.4 – Screening for fetal growth retardation using ultrasonics Obstetrical Delivery and Postpartum Care Billing Providers should bill antepartum care separately from the delivery and postpartum care. The IHCP follows CPT guidelines for obstetrical delivery billing. Delivery services include admission to the hospital, the admission history and physical examination, management of uncomplicated labor, vaginal delivery (with or without episiotomy, with or without forceps), or cesarean delivery. Medical problems complicating labor and delivery management may require additional resources, and providers should identify them by using the codes in the Evaluation and Management Services section, in addition to codes for maternity care. Therefore, providers do not bill separately for the hospital inpatient service E/M codes for initial hospital care (99221, 99222, and 99223), subsequent hospital care (99231, 99232, and 99233), and hospital discharge services (99238 and 99239), and the IHCP does reimburse for these to the practitioner billing for the obstetrical delivery. In addition, providers should not bill separately for the E/M codes for observation or inpatient care services, including admission and discharge services (99234, 99235, and 99236), and the IHCP does not reimburse to the practitioner billing for the obstetrical delivery. Any submission of E/M codes by the delivering practitioner should meet the CPT guidelines. The IHCP also allows up to two postpartum visits within 60 days postdelivery. The IHCP may reimburse the provider for up to two inpatient or outpatient postpartum visits using CPT code 59430, which is for postpartum care only. However, if providers use CPT codes 59410 or 59515 – which include delivery plus postpartum care – when billing, they can bill one additional postpartum visit using procedure code 59430. Other Outpatient Office Visits Providers can bill CPT procedure codes 99211–99215 or 99241-99245 for outpatient office visits rendered to pregnant members, if the service is related to a concurrent medical condition requiring medical care or consultative referral. Providers must identify that concurrent condition as either a primary or secondary condition by a valid ICD-9-CM diagnosis code and indicate the appropriate diagnosis reference number (1, 2, 3, or 4) in field 24E of the CMS-1500. Additionally, providers can bill the first prenatal visit with E/M codes 99201–99215, the appropriate trimester modifier, and the expected date of delivery, all indicated on the claim. For billing instructions for services rendered to IHCP Package B members, see the section titled Hoosier Healthwise Package B in this chapter. Normal Pregnancy The following diagnosis codes indicate a normal, low-risk pregnancy: • V22.0 • V22.1 8-298 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Multiple Births Multiple birth deliveries are subject to multiple surgery reimbursement. The current reimbursement policy indicated in 405 IAC 5-28-1 (g) for pricing multiple surgical procedures states that 100 percent of the global fee is reimbursed for the most expensive procedure. The second most expensive procedure is reimbursed at 50 percent of the global fee, and remaining procedures are reimbursed at 25 percent of the global fee. The IHCP reimburses for only one cesarean procedure regardless of the number of babies delivered during the cesarean section. Therefore, only one detail line with one unit of service is billed for cesarean delivery procedure codes. The IHCP reimburses for only one delivery procedure code that includes postpartum care. If there are multiple births during one delivery, the first delivery code can include postpartum care; however, any subsequent deliveries are billed with a procedure code that does not include postpartum care. If billing for multiple births when all births are vaginal deliveries, providers bill the first birth using procedure code 59409 – Vaginal delivery only (with or without episiotomy and/or forceps); 59410 – Vaginal delivery only (with or without episiotomy and/or forceps); including postpartum care; 59612 – Vaginal delivery only, after previous cesarean delivery (with or without episiotomy and/or forceps), or 59614 – Vaginal delivery only, after previous cesarean delivery (with or without episiotomy and/or forceps); including postpartum care. The second birth and any subsequent births are billed using procedure codes 59409 or 59612 with modifier 51 – Multiple procedures. When billing for one vaginal birth and one or more births by cesarean section, the cesarean birth is billed with procedure code 59514 – Cesarean delivery only or 59515 – Cesarean delivery only; including postpartum care, and the vaginal birth is billed using procedure code 59409 or 59612 with modifier 51. When billing for two or more vaginal births and one or more births by cesarean, the cesarean birth(s) are billed on one detail line with one unit of service using procedure code 59514 or 59515. The vaginal birth(s) are billed as separate details using procedure code 59409 or 59612 with modifier 51. If all births are cesarean, the cesarean births are billed using the appropriate procedure code 59514, 59515, 59620, or 59622, and one unit of service. If an assistant surgeon aids in the cesarean delivery, the service is billed using modifiers 80 and 82 to indicate the service was performed by an assistant surgeon. The reimbursement for the assistant surgeon’s services is 20 percent of the allowed amount for the cesarean delivery. Providers cannot bill the same rendering provider number for the surgeon and assistant surgeon details when billing for a cesarean delivery. If billing for assistant surgery services provided by a physician assistant, providers can bill the same rendering provider number for the surgeon and physician assistant surgery details. The detail for the physician assistant is billed with the AS modifier to indicate the service was provided by the physician assistant. The reimbursement for the physician assistant’s services is 20 percent of the allowed amount for the cesarean delivery. High-Risk Pregnancy Prenatal Risk Assessment The IHCP may also consider a pregnant woman medically high-risk if the provider identifies two relative medical conditions during a prenatal risk assessment. To document medically high-risk pregnancies, providers may do one of the following: • Use a standardized risk assessment tool (for example, ACOG Obstetric Medical History). • Use the Prenatal Risk Assessment Form available on the IHCP Web site at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-299 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions • Complete and submit the Notification of Pregnancy (NOP) through Web interChange. Providers are encouraged to use the NOP, which provides a $60 reimbursement per pregnancy submission. See Process for Completion of the Notification of Pregnancy section. Psychosocially High-Risk Pregnancy For high-risk pregnancies identified for psychosocial reasons, the IHCP limits to the standard maximum 14 antepartum care visit requirement. Psychosocially high-risk pregnancies do not automatically qualify for additional antepartum visits unless another medical complication exists that is listed under the ICD-9-CM codes for high-risk pregnancies. Use the ICD-9-CM diagnosis code range V60.0 through V62.9 to indicate a high-risk pregnancy for psychosocial reasons. Medically High-Risk Pregnancy Some pregnant members have medical complications that may adversely affect the outcome of the pregnancy if not adequately treated. These complications, identified during the prenatal assessment, may place the member and the fetus in a high-risk pregnancy category that requires additional primary care management. The IHCP reimburses only physicians for medically high-risk pregnancy care. Providers may refer members identified as having medically high-risk pregnancies only to other appropriate physicians. The IHCP does not permit referrals to nonphysicians for high-risk pregnancyrelated services. Providers in the Care Select program participating in a Memorandum of Collaboration agreement may provide care for patients as defined in the agreement. To be considered a high-risk pregnancy, a woman must have at least two medical risk factors in her current pregnancy or obstetrical history that places her at risk for a preterm birth or poor pregnancy outcome. Medically High-Risk Diagnoses The following list gives examples of common high-risk pregnancy conditions. This list is included for illustrative purposes only and is not an inclusive list of all medical conditions that can complicate pregnancy. Providers may use a standardized risk assessment tool (for example, ACOG Obstetric Medical History), use the Prenatal Risk Assessment Form available on the IHCP Web site at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com, or complete and submit the Notification of Pregnancy (NOP) through Web interChange to document a high-risk pregnancy.

These codes, when billed with prenatal office visit procedure codes 59425 and 59426, increase the maximum fee allowed for these services by $10 per visit. Providers may use a standardized risk assessment tool (for example, ACOG Obstetric Medical History), use the Prenatal Risk Assessment Form available on the IHCP Web site at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com, or complete and submit the Notification of Pregnancy (NOP) through Web interChange for these patients and retain a copy of the form in the patient’s record for retrospective review. Providers are encouraged to use the NOP, which provides a $60 reimbursement per pregnancy submission. Providers should refer patients with risk factors to a prenatal care coordinator. The IHCP provides higher reimbursement for prenatal office visits only for patients who present with medical high-risk factors.

Additional Antepartum Visits Members identified as medically high-risk patients may receive additional antepartum care visits, beyond the maximum of 14 allowed for a normal pregnancy. Claims must indicate the high-risk diagnosis, the LMP, the appropriate CPT procedure code (procedure code 59425 for visits one through six, and procedure code 59426 for visits in excess of six), and the corresponding modifier. Reimbursement The IHCP recognizes that care of pregnant women in the medical high-risk category requires greater physician management, and therefore the IHCP reimburses physicians practicing obstetrics an additional $10 per prenatal visit. The additional reimbursement is available if the provider identifies and documents the specific medical high-risk factors in the medical record and indicates the high-risk diagnosis when submitting claims. Ensure that this information is easily identifiable on the medical record for audit purposes. Pregnancy Services Billing Considerations Providers must indicate the LMP in a MM/YY/DD format in field 14 for paper claim filing and in a CCYYMMDD format in the Last Menstrual Period Date, Data Element 1251 for electronic claim filing. The IHCP does not process for payment any claims for pregnancy-related services submitted without an LMP. Providers must enter the charged amount for each antepartum visit and for each postpartum visit in field 24F of the CMS-1500. Providers must indicate a pregnancy-related diagnosis code as the primary diagnosis when billing for pregnancy-related services. The IHCP limits payment for pregnancy-related services to the following ICD-9-CM diagnoses subject to PA restrictions and in accordance with Indiana Administrative Code. The primary diagnosis codes are V22.0 through V25.2 and V60.0 through V62.9. Providers must indicate the pregnancy-related diagnosis code in field 24E of the CMS-1500. Enter the pregnancy indicator P in field 24H on the CMS-1500. Diagnoses to identify supervision of a high-risk pregnancy for medical reasons are listed in the Medically High-Risk Diagnoses subsection in this chapter. 8-304 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Hoosier Healthwise Package B – Pregnancy and Urgent Care Only The IHCP pays only for abortions to terminate pregnancies resulting from rape or incest, in addition to abortions necessary to save the life of the pregnant mother. Hoosier Healthwise Package B members are entitled to coverage of services related to pregnancy, which includes prenatal, delivery, and postpartum services as well as conditions that may complicate the pregnancy. Hoosier Healthwise Package B covers most conditions that can complicate pregnancies but does not cover elective services as pregnancy-related. Additionally, Hoosier Healthwise Package B members are eligible for family planning, transportation, and pharmacy services. As with all claims, the IHCP reimburses services to Hoosier Healthwise Package B limited benefits in accordance with the Indiana Administrative Code. Note: For RBMC members, contact the appropriate MCO for additional instructions. Services for Hoosier Healthwise Package B must comply with the following restrictions: • The IHCP does not reimburse for any services other than pregnancy-related services. • The IHCP pays for drugs prescribed for indications directly related to the pregnancy in accordance with IAC restrictions. In addition to drug coverage, transportation, family planning, routine prenatal care, delivery, and postpartum care, the IHCP reimburses providers for a condition that may complicate the pregnancy. In other words, the IHCP covers a service provided to a pregnant woman for the treatment of a chronic or abnormal disorder, as identified by ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes 649.00 – 649.04, 649.10 – 649.14, 649.20 – 649.21, 649.23 – 649.24, 649.30 – 649.34, 649.40 – 649.44, 649.50 – 649.51, 649.53, 649.60 – 649.64, 649.70 – 649.71, and 649.73, as well as urgent care. The IHCP defines a condition that may complicate the pregnancy as any condition manifesting itself by symptoms of sufficient severity that the absence of medical attention could reasonably be expected to result in a deterioration of the patient’s condition or a need for a higher level of care. The IHCP does not dictate to physicians conditions that may or may not complicate a pregnancy. Therefore, if the physician determines that the illness or injury could complicate the pregnancy or have an adverse effect on the outcome of the pregnancy, the IHCP covers the care provided for that illness or injury. Physicians must use one of the diagnosis codes previously listed as the primary diagnosis on the claim. If none of the diagnosis codes are appropriate for the situation, the physician should list a pregnancy diagnosis code as the primary diagnosis code and identify the illness or injury being treated as the secondary diagnosis code. Following termination of the pregnancy, a pregnancy and urgent care only member is eligible solely for transportation, family planning, and postpartum care services. The IHCP does not reimburse for urgent care services unrelated to complications of the puerperium. This eligibility begins on the last day of pregnancy and extends through the end of the month in which the last day of the 60-day period ends. When billing for urgent care services, providers must appropriately mark and code claims as emergency. The primary diagnosis code must be pregnancy-related or the IHCP denies the claim. Providers must indicate the pregnancy-related code in field 24E on the CMS-1500 claim form. If the pregnancy diagnosis does not adequately address the specific reason for the visit or care, providers must also include the visit or care diagnosis as a secondary or tertiary diagnosis on the claim form. Providers must enter the pregnancy indicator, P, in field 24H of the CMS-1500 claim form.

The member must complete consent forms, and the provider must send them with the claim. Proton Treatment Billing The IHCP has determined that it is appropriate for providers to use the CPT codes listed in Table 8.92 to report the technical component only of the CPT codes noted in Table 8.92 for reporting proton treatment delivery. Therefore, effective for dates of service on or after December 1, 2006, the IHCP does not reimburse providers services reported using the CPT codes listed in Table 8.92 and billed with modifiers 26 – Professional component and TC – Technical component. Providers are advised to bill CPT codes 77520, 77522, and 77525 for the technical component only. Additionally, providers are advised to report the professional services using an appropriate CPT procedure code. Table 8.92 – Proton Treatment Delivery CPT Code 77520 77522 77525 Description Proton treatment; simple, without compensation Proton treatment; simple, with compensation Proton treatment delivery; complex Ophthalmological Services Coverage and Billing Procedures The IHCP provides reimbursement for ophthalmology services, subject to the following restrictions: • One routine vision care examination and refraction for members 18 years old and younger, per rolling calendar year • One routine vision care examination and refraction for members 19 years old and older, every two years • The member must meet the following medical necessity guidelines in at least one eye for the provision of eyeglasses (including replacement eyeglasses): - A change of 0.75 diopters for patients 6 to 42 years old - A change of 0.50 diopters prescription or change for patients more than 42 years old - An axis change of at least 15 degrees • Replacement frames and lenses only when the medical necessity guidelines are met or when necessitated by loss, theft, or damage beyond repair Date of Service Definition All claims must reflect a date of service. The date of service is the date the specific services were actually supplied, dispensed, or rendered to the patient. For example, when rendering services for space maintainers or dentures, the date of service must reflect the date the appliance or denture is delivered to the patient. This requirement is applicable to all IHCP-covered services. 8-306 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Vision Coding and the Vision Services Code Set Providers must use the appropriate CPT codes or HCPCS codes when submitting claims for vision services to the IHCP. Optometrists and opticians are subject to the vision services code set, and the IHCP reimburses them only for services listed on the code set. IHCP provider code sets are available on the IHCP Web site at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com. The IHCP considers the following services bundled and not separately billable to the IHCP or the patient: • Eyeglass cases • Fitting of eyeglasses • Neutralization of lenses • Verification of prescription Vision Procedures Limited to One Unit IHCP providers may only bill one unit, per member, per day for the procedures listed in Table 8.93. Claims that have more than one unit per day for these codes will automatically cut back and pay for one unit. Providers that have been reimbursed for more than one unit may be subject to post-payment review and possible recoupment.

Providers should be sure to meet the following criteria: • Submit services using CPT code 92065. • Limit 92065 to one unit or visit per day. • Have a physician or an optometrist order all vision therapy services. • The physician or optometrist must document, in the medical record, a diagnosis and treatment plan and reevaluations of the need for continued treatment. Providers must document this information in the member’s medical record. • An optometrist, a physician, or a supervised certified or trained staff can perform vision therapy services. • Staff trained or certified in vision training may perform orthoptic and pleoptic training only under the direct supervision of an optometrist or physician. Direct supervision requires that the supervising physician or optometrist must be physically available at the time and the place where the vision therapy services are rendered. • Only the supervising optometrist or physician may document the treatment plan and reevaluations in the medical record. All documentation of directly supervised vision therapy services rendered by opticians, orthoptists, or staff trained in vision therapy must be cosigned by the supervising optometrist or physician in the medical record. These services are noncovered by Medicare, and providers can bill them directly to Medicaid on a CMS-1500 for dually eligible members. Lenses Providers should include prescription of lenses, when required, in 92015 – Determination of refractive state, which includes specification of lens type (monofocal, bifocal, or other), lens power, axis, prism, absorptive factor, impact resistance, and other factors.

According to 405 IAC 5-23-4 (2), the IHCP may only reimburse for tints 1 and 2. Table 8.97 – Covered Codes for Tints Code with Modifier Description V2745 U1 Tint, plastic, rose 1 or 2, per lens V2745 U2 Tint, glass, rose 1 or 2, per lens The IHCP covers safety lenses only for corneal lacerations and other severe intractable ocular or ocular adnexal disease. The IHCP developed specific criteria for polycarbonate lenses to ensure that providers use the lenses only for medically necessary conditions that require additional ocular protection for members. HCPCS code V2784–Lens, polycarbonate or equal, any index, per lens remains covered when a corrective lens is medically necessary, and if one or more of the following criteria is met: • Member has carcinoma in one eye, and the healthy eye requires a corrective lens. • Member has only one eye that requires a corrective lens. • Member has had eye surgery and still requires the use of a corrective lens. • Member has retinal detachment or is post-surgery for retinal detachment and requires a lens to correct a refractive error of one or both eyes. • Member has a cataract in one eye or is post-cataract surgery and requires a lens to correct a refractive error of one or both eyes. • Member has low vision or legal blindness in one eye with normal or near normal vision in the other eye. • Other conditions deemed medically necessary by the optometrist or ophthalmologist exist. These conditions must be such that one eye is affected by an intractable ocular condition, and the polycarbonate lens is being used to protect the remaining vision of the healthy eye. In all these situations, one or both eyes must be affected by an intractable ocular condition. The IHCP covers the polycarbonate lens only to protect the remaining vision of the healthy eye when it is medically necessary to correct a refractive error. Patient charts must support medical necessity. The IHCP monitors use of these lenses in postpayment reviews. The IHCP covers contact lenses when they are medically necessary. The IHCP does not require documentation with the claim, but providers must maintain documentation in the patient’s medical record for postpayment review. Examples of medically necessary contact lenses include, but are not limited to, patients with severe facial deformity who are physically unable to wear eyeglasses or who have severe allergy to all frame materials. The prescription of contact lens includes the specification of optical and physical characteristics such as power, size, curvature, flexibility, and gas permeability, and providers can bill with CPT codes 92310 through 92326, which is not part of the general ophthalmology services. Fitting contact lenses includes instruction and training of the wearer and incidental revision of the lenses during the training period. Providers should report follow-up of successfully fitted extended wear lenses as part of the general ophthalmological service. The IHCP does not reimburse for more than one unit for eye exams and other ophthalmologic procedures. (See Table 8.97 for codes applying to eye exams and other ophthalmological services.) Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-311 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions IHCP providers may only bill one unit, per member, per day for the codes listed in the table below. Claims that have more than one unit per day for these codes will automatically cutback and pay for one unit. Table 8.97 – Eye Exams and Other Ophthalmological Services CPT Codes 92002 92004 92012 92014 92018 92019 92020 92060 92065 92081 92082 92083 92100 92120 92130 92140 92250 92260 92265 92270 92275 92284 92285 92286 92287 92311 92312 92313 92315 92316 Frames The IHCP reimburses for frames including, but not limited to, plastic or metal. Providers should bill for frames using V2020. Providers who receive payment from the IHCP for frames may not bill the member for any additional cost above the IHCP reimbursement. The IHCP does not cover any portion of a deluxe or fancy frame purchase, except when medically necessary. Situations include, but are not limited to, special frames to accommodate a facial deformity or anomaly, allergic reaction to standard frame material, or infant and child frames. Providers must submit charges for medically necessary deluxe frames with procedure code V2025. The IHCP requires documentation outlining the medical necessity when providers submit the claim. Providers must submit an invoice for the frames with the claim. The IHCP reimburses at 90 percent of the retail price, as indicated on the invoice. If a patient chooses to upgrade to a deluxe frame, the IHCP considers the entire frame noncovered, and the provider may bill it to the patient if the provider gave proper advance notice of no coverage to the member and the member signed it. In these situations, providers should submit only the claim for the lenses to the IHCP. The IHCP does not cover the following services: • Lenses with decorative designs • Fashion tints, gradient tints, sunglasses, and photochromatic lenses - The IHCP does cover tint numbers 1 and 2, rose A, pink 1, soft lite, cruxite, and velvet lite, subject to medical necessity. • Oversized lenses larger than 61mm, except when medical necessity is documented The IHCP reimburses for lenses and other optical supplies, except frames, at the lower of the provider’s usual and customary charge or the IHCP maximum rate on file. Note: Replacement of eyeglasses beyond the indicated criteria must be medically necessary and clearly documented in the patient’s medical record. Replacement eyeglasses represent the beginning of a new limitation period. Adoption of Modifiers for Replacement Eyeglasses Repair or replacement covers the part of the eyeglasses that is broken or damaged. Patients are not entitled to a new pair of eyeglasses if the lenses and/or frames can be repaired. 8-312 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Members younger than 19 years of age who have met the medical necessity for replacement eyeglasses may be eligible for a new pair of eyeglasses one year from the date when the IHCP provided their replacement eyeglasses. Members 19 years of age and older who have met the medical necessity for replacement eyeglasses may be eligible for a new pair of eyeglasses two years from the date when the IHCP provided their replacement eyeglasses. If a member needs replacement eyeglasses due to loss, theft, or damage beyond repair prior to the established frequency limitations, providers must use the RP modifier for dates of service on or before December 31, 2008, and U8 modifier for dates of service on or after January 1, 2009, to bill for the replacement lenses and/or frames. Providers must include documentation in the member’s medical record to substantiate the need for replacement frames or lenses. Documentation that eyeglasses have been lost, stolen, or broken beyond repair must include a signed statement by the member detailing how the eyeglasses were lost, stolen, or broken. If a member needs replacement eyeglasses due to a change in prescription as specified in 405 IAC 523-4 and prior to the established frequency limitations, providers must use modifier SC when billing lenses and/or frames. Use of either modifier indicates that the appropriate documentation is on file in the patient’s record to substantiate the need to replace lenses or frames. Replacement of eyeglasses must be for medical necessity. Note: The IHCP requires modifiers only needed on claims for replacement of frames or lenses within the one- or two-year period, based on the patient’s age at the time of service; however, all eyeglasses dispensed must meet the minimum prescription requirements for the initial dispensing and each subsequent dispensing of eyeglasses. Written Correspondence Ophthalmology and optometric providers may not have the most current information available about services previously rendered to the member and paid by the IHCP. This could result in reduced reimbursement or no reimbursement for rendered services. The HP Provider Written Correspondence Unit addresses specific questions pertaining to the IHCP. Providers may write to this unit to determine whether particular members have exceeded their service limitations. Providers should allow 10 business days to receive an answer to a written inquiry. Benefit limits for optometry services are available through the Eligibility Verification System (EVS). Chapter 3 of this manual provides additional information. When providers use the Indiana Medicaid Inquiry Form, it assists the HP Provider Written Correspondence Unit in providing the timeliest response. The IHCP may return incomplete written inquiry forms for additional information. Clearly stating the reason for the inquiry enables analysts to research the issue and provide a resolution. Providers should not send inquiries to resubmit claims previously rejected. Mail all written inquiries to the following address: HP Provider Written Correspondence P.O.

Billing a Member for Services that have Exceeded Benefit Limitations Providers may bill IHCP members for services exceeding the ophthalmology benefit limitations under the following circumstances: • If the EVS informs the provider that the limitation has already been met, the member is informed. If the member still wishes to receive the service, they are asked to sign a waiver stating that the service will not be covered because benefits have been exhausted. • If the EVS does not show that benefits have been exhausted, the provider may ask the member or their guardian to attest in writing that they have not received Medicaid covered glasses within the past one or two years (depending upon their age). The member is informed that if they are misrepresenting and the provider’s claim is denied for exceeding benefit limitations, the member will be responsible for the charges. Prior Authorization The IHCP does not require PA for vision care services except for the following provisions: • Blepharoplasty for a significant obstructive vision problem • Prosthetic device, except eyeglasses • Reconstruction or plastic surgery Vision Services and Managed Care Providers furnishing optical or ophthalmology services to members enrolled in Care Select must follow existing PA guidelines for surgical services. The IHCP makes vision care and medical services available to Care Select and Hoosier Healthwise members on a self-referral basis. Providers must submit RBMC member claims to the members’ MCO for payment. Surgeries furnished to patients enrolled in the RBMC must be prior authorized by the MCO in accordance with the MCO guidelines. Podiatric Services Coverage and Billing Procedures Routine foot care includes the following: • Cutting or removal of corns, calluses, or warts, including plantar warts • Trimming of nails, including mycotic nails 8-314 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions • Treatment of fungal, mycotic infection of the toenail is routine foot care only when the following applies: - Clinical evidence of infection of the toenail is present. - Compelling medical evidence exists, documenting that the patient either has a marked limitation of ambulation requiring active treatment of the foot or, in the case of nonambulatory patient, has a condition that is likely to result in significant medical complications in the absence of such treatment. The IHCP covers routine foot care only if a medical doctor or doctor of osteopathy has seen the patient for treatment or evaluation of a systemic disease during the six-month period prior to rendering routine foot care services. Providers must include the name and provider number of the physician in the CMS1500 in fields 17 and 17A, respectively. Providers should include the nature of the foot condition being treated on the claim form, include the diagnosis in field 21 of the CMS-1500, and referred to the diagnosis in field 24E of the CMS-1500. The IHCP covers a maximum of six routine foot care services per rolling 12-month period when the patient has one of the following: • A systemic disease of sufficient severity that treatment of the disease may pose a hazard when performed by a nonprofessional • Has had severe circulatory impairment as a result of the systemic condition or has had areas of desensitization in the legs or feet • The following is a list of the ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes that represent those systemic conditions that would justify coverage for routine foot care: - Diabetes mellitus, ICD-9-CM codes 250.00 through 250.91 - Arteriosclerotic vascular disease of extremities, ICD-9-CM code 440.20 through 440.29 - Thromboangiitis obliterans, ICD-9-CM code 443.1 - Post-phlebitis syndrome, ICD-9-CM code 459.10 through 459.19 - Polyneuropathy of the feet, ICD-9-CM codes 357.1 through 357.7 The IHCP does not cover routine foot care services for Package C.

The IHCP requires PA for the following: • When a podiatrist prescribes or supplies corrective features built into shoes such as heels, lifts, and wedges for members 20 years old and younger. • When a podiatrist fits or supplies orthopedic shoes for members with severe diabetic foot disease, subject to the restrictions and limitations outlined in 405 IAC 5-19-10. Second Opinions The IHCP may require providers to obtain a second or third opinion substantiating the medical necessity or approach to the following surgical procedures: • Bunionectomy procedures • All surgical procedures involving the foot Refer to 405 IAC 5-8 for documentation about second opinions. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-315 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Office Visits The IHCP reimburses for podiatric office visits, subject to the following restrictions: • The IHCP limits reimbursement to one office visit, using procedure codes 99211, 99212, and 99213, per member, per 12 months, without obtaining PA. • The IHCP reimburses for new patient office visits, using procedure codes 99201, 99202, and 99203, one per member, per provider, within the last three years as defined by the CPT guidelines. • Providers can bill a visit separately only on the initial visit. For subsequent visits, the procedure performed on that date includes the reimbursement for the visits, and providers do not bill them separately. However, if a second, significant problem is addressed on a subsequent visit, the provider can report the visit code with the 25 modifier. The provider needs to send documentation indicating why the subsequent visit was required. Note: The SUR Department identified utilization issues related to podiatrists inappropriately billing multiple units of CPT® codes 99201-99203 for new patient visits and CPT codes 99211-99213 for established patient visits. The SUR Department advises all providers to carefully review claims submitted to the IHCP to ensure proper billing of units for these services. The SUR Department reviews claims to determine any inappropriate reimbursement and recoups overpayments. If a provider identifies overpayments related to these errors, the provider should file an adjustment or contact the SUR Department to arrange for repayment. Surgical Services The IHCP reimburses for the following surgical procedures without PA: • Drainage of skin abscesses of the foot • Drainage or injections of a joint or bursa of the foot • Surgical cleansing of the skin • Trimming of skin lesions of the foot, other than those identified as included in routine foot care services The IHCP reimburses for surgical procedures other than those mentioned above, performed within the scope of the podiatrist’s license, subject to PA, as specified in 405 IAC 5-26, Podiatric Services. For all surgical procedures on one or both feet performed on the same date, the IHCP pays 100 percent of the IHCP allowance for the major procedure and 50 percent of the IHCP allowance for subsequent procedures. If providers perform surgery on both feet, and if the surgery on the second foot is performed at least five days after surgery on the first foot, 100 percent allowance is payable for the second surgery. If providers perform the major surgical procedure on one toe, a time period of five days must elapse before the IHCP would again pay 100 percent of the IHCP-allowable reimbursement for subsequent surgery on the same foot. For surgery performed sooner than five days, the IHCP pays 50 percent of the IHCP-allowable reimbursement. If providers perform the major surgical procedure on one toe, a period of 30 days must elapse before the IHCP would again pay at 100 percent of IHCP-allowable reimbursement for a subsequent surgery on the same toe. For surgery performed sooner than 30 days, the IHCP reimburses 50 percent of the IHCP-allowable reimbursement. 8-316 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions For podiatric surgical procedures, including diagnostic surgical procedures, providers cannot fragment and bill separately. Generally, providers include such procedures in the major procedure. Procedures in this category include, but are not limited to, the following: • Arthroscopy or arthrotomy procedures in the same area as a major joint procedure unless the claim documents a second incision was made • Local anesthesia administered to perform the surgical or diagnostic procedure • Scope procedures used for the surgical procedure approach Laboratory and X-ray Services The IHCP reimburses a podiatrist for laboratory or X-ray services only if the services are rendered by or under the personal supervision of the podiatrist. For services ordered by a podiatrist, but performed by a laboratory or X-ray facility, the laboratory or X-ray facility bills directly to the IHCP. The IHCP may reimburse the podiatrist for collection of a specimen sent to the laboratory. The IHCP does not reimburse for comparative foot X-rays, unless prior authorized. The IHCP reimburses for the following lab and X-ray services billed by a podiatrist: • Cultures for foot infections and mycotic fungal nails for diagnostic purposes • Medically necessary presurgical testing • Sensitivity studies for treatment of infection processes Prior Authorization The IHCP requires PA for the following: • Corrective features built into shoes, such as heels, lifts, and wedges, for a member younger than 20 years old • Orthopedic shoes for members with severe diabetic foot disease, subject to the restrictions and limitations outlined in 405 IAC 5-19-10 • Palliative or hygienic care for the removal or trimming of corns, calluses, and nails covered for members with painful keratosis, diseased nails, or deformed nails (authorization covers six treatments per year) • Routine foot care in excess of six services per year for patients with diabetes mellitus, peripheral vascular disease, or peripheral neuropathy Podiatric Services and Managed Care Providers furnishing podiatric services to members enrolled in Care Select must follow existing PA guidelines. Podiatric services are available to Care Select and Hoosier Healthwise patients on a selfreferral basis. Providers should submit RBMC member claims to the member’s MCO for payment. For services that require PA furnished to members enrolled in RBMC, providers must obtain prior authorization from the MCO in accordance with the MCO guidelines. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-317 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Radiology Services Coverage and Billing Procedures Providers furnishing radiology services to members enrolled in Care Select must follow existing PA guidelines.

Services that require PA furnished to members enrolled in RBMC must be prior authorized by the MCO in accordance with the MCO guidelines. Some radiological procedures encompass professional and technical components of the service. A physician typically performs the professional component of the procedure. The IHCP reimburses radiology inpatient and outpatient facilities, freestanding clinics, and surgical centers for services provided to members subject to the following limitations: • The IHCP requires PA for any radiological services that exceed the use parameters set out in this section. • For a radiological service, a physician or other practitioner authorized to do so under state law must order it in writing. • The radiological service facility must bill the IHCP directly for components provided by the facility. When two practitioners separately provide a portion of the radiology service, each practitioner may bill the IHCP directly for the component provided. The IHCP reimburses a physician or other practitioner for radiological services only when that physician or practitioner directly supervised the performance of those services. • The IHCP reimburses a physician for the professional component by billing the appropriate CPT code along with Modifier 26, Professional component. When billing only the technical component, providers must use Modifier TC, Technical component, with the appropriate CPT code. When billing for professional and technical components of service, providers should use no modifiers. CPT codes for which providers should use these modifiers to bill are listed in the Federal Register under RVUs and related information. • For radiology procedures, providers cannot fragment and bill separately. Such procedures may include, but are not limited to, the following: - The IHCP does not reimburse for CPT codes for supervision and interpretation procedures when the same provider bills for the complete procedure CPT code. - If two provider specialties are performing a radiology procedure, the radiologist bills for the supervision and interpretation procedure, and the second physician bills the appropriate injection, aspiration, or biopsy procedure. • The IHCP does not reimburse for angiographic procedures performed as an integral component of a surgical procedure by the operating physician.

The IEP serves as prior authorization for the service provided. The IHCP enrolls only school corporations recognized and approved by the Indiana Department of Education. Effective for dates of service on or after August 1, 1998, school corporations enrolled as IHCP providers are exempt from requirements to obtain PA and the PMP Certification Code to bill for IEP services furnished to a student in Special Education. Submit claims for IEP services provided to special education students enrolled in the Care Select on the CMS-1500 to the following address: HP CMS-1500 Claims P.O. Box 7269 Indianapolis, IN 46207-7269 If the student is enrolled in an RBMC MCO, school corporation providers must submit claims for IEP services to HP and not to the student’s MCO. Although IEP services are carved out of the IHCP managed care programs, provider cooperation is strongly encouraged to keep the PMPs informed of health-related services provided to IHCP-eligible special education students. Arrangements should be made to send progress reports or some other type of documentation to the PMP of each student to promote continuity and quality of care for each student. Surgical Services Coverage and Billing Procedures Providers furnishing surgical services to members enrolled in Care Select must follow existing PA guidelines. RBMC member claims are submitted to the patients’ MCO for payment. Services that require PA furnished to patients enrolled in RBMC must be prior authorized by the MCO in accordance with the MCO guidelines. A surgical procedure generally includes the preoperative visits performed on the same day or the day prior to the surgery for major surgical procedures, and the day of the surgical procedure for minor surgical procedures. Separate reimbursement is available for preoperative care when the provider performing the surgery has never seen the patient, or the decision to perform surgery was made during the preoperative visit. • 8-322 Modifier 57 – Decision for Surgery must be submitted on the CMS-1500 or 837P with the E/M Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions The postoperative care days for a surgical procedure include 90 days following a major surgical procedure and 10 days following a minor surgical procedure. Separate reimbursement is available for care provided during the global postoperative period unrelated to the surgical procedure, or for care not considered routine, and postoperative care for surgical complications. All levels of medical care, prior to surgical procedures, are reimbursed individually based on documentation of the patient’s medical condition. If the patient’s condition requires additional medical or surgical care outside the scope of the operating surgeon – for example, an additional surgery performed by a different specialist for a different diagnosis – on the same day, reimbursement for the medical care is considered individually. Medical visits for surgical complication are reimbursed only if medically indicated and no other physician has billed for the same or related diagnosis. The claim must indicate the specific complications and providers should attach documentation that clearly supports the medical necessity for the care provided. The medical visits are billed separately from the surgical fee. Such complications may include but are not limited to the following: • Cardiovascular complications • Comatose conditions • Elevated temperature above 38.4 degrees C, 101 degrees F, for two or more consecutive days • Medical complications, other than nausea and vomiting, due to anesthesia • Nausea and vomiting persisting more than 24 hours • Postoperative wound infection requiring specialized treatment • Renal failure Split Care Requirements for Split Care The IHCP requires a written agreement when the global surgical procedure is split among multiple providers. The conditions are the same as those for Medicare and are illustrated as follows: • Providers billing for split care must have a written agreement outlining the date care is to be turned over and the name of the provider receiving the patient. • Agreement must become part of the patient’s file. • Agreement must be submitted with any review or hearing request about the split care payment. • Modifier 54 must not be billed unless a written agreement exists. • Physician must bill the appropriate CPT code without modifier 54 or 55 if a written agreement does not exist. Split Care Billing Procedures and Reimbursement Calculation When the provider who performed the surgery does not provide any postoperative care, the provider must bill the surgical procedure code with modifier 54 – surgical care only and the actual date of the surgery. Postoperative care must be billed using the surgical procedure code with modifier 55 – postoperative management only. The dates of service must reflect the date care was assumed and relinquished and the units field must include the total number of postoperative days furnished. To ensure appropriate reimbursement when billing with modifier 55, the number of days within the date of service range Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-323 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions must equal the number of units (days) reported on the claim. For the purposes of defining postoperative care units, one unit is equal to one day of postoperative care. Note: The postoperative period begins the day after surgery. Postoperative management claims must not be submitted until the physician managing the postoperative care sees the patient for the first time. The following two examples define appropriate billing procedures for split care and show how reimbursement is calculated. The examples use procedure code 43030, a 90-day postoperative period, and allow a total of $460.48 for the global service, as shown in Table 8.99. Table 8.99 – Procedure Code 43030 Description Percentage Preoperative Modifier 9 Intraoperative +81 Total intraoperative 90 54 Postoperative 10 55 Total 100 Example 1 In this example, two physicians split the postoperative care. Physician A performs the surgical procedure and manages the patient postoperatively for 60 days, as shown in Table 8.100. Table 8.100 – Billing Physician A Physician A From Date of Service To Date of Service Procedure Code Modifier Units Billed Detail 1 10/01/2008 10/01/2008 43030 54 1 Detail 2 10/02/2008 11/30/2008 43030 55 60 Calculations are made as follows: Detail 1: Global fee of $460.48 multiplied by 0.90 (9 percent preoperative percentage + 81 percent intraoperative percentage) multiplied by 1 unit billed equals $414.43. Detail 2: Global fee of $460.48 multiplied by 0.10 equals the total postoperative allowance of $46.048 divided by 90 (number of global days assigned) equals $0.5116 per day multiplied by 60 (number of postoperative days reported) equals $30.699 or $30.70. As shown in Table 8.101, Physician B performs the balance of the postoperative care for 30 days. Table 8.101 – Billing Physician B Physician B Detail 1 8-324 From Date of Service 12/01/2008 To Date of Service 12/30/2008 Procedure Code 43030 Modifier 55 Units Billed 30 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Calculations are made as follows: Detail 1: Global fee of $460.48 multiplied by 0.10 equals the total postoperative allowance of $46.048 divided by 90 (number of global days assigned) equals $0.5116 per day multiplied by 30 (number of postoperative days reported) equals $15.348 or $15.35. When only one provider is responsible for the surgery and all the postoperative care, the provider must bill the surgical procedure, without modifier 54 or 55. The IHCP allowed amount in this case would be 100 percent of the RBRVS fee. Modifiers 54 and 55 are used only to split postoperative care between multiple providers. Example 2 In this example, the same provider bills for the surgery and all the postoperative care. Physician A performs and bills for the surgical procedure and all the postoperative care, as shown in Table 8.102. Table 8.102 – Billing Physician A Physician A Detail 1 From Date of Service 10/01/2008 To Date of Service 10/01/2008 Procedure Code 43030 Modifier Units Billed 1 Calculations are made as follows: The global fee for procedure code 43030 is $460.48. Therefore, reimbursement for this service should be made at $460.48. Exceptions and Special Billing Considerations If more than one physician in the same group practice participates in a portion of a patient’s care, included in a global surgery package, only the physician who performs the surgery can submit a bill. Split care modifiers are not applicable and the surgeon’s claim must include only the surgical procedure. Although other physicians participated in the care, all are within the same group practice. There is no need to split the reimbursement because the physician group is reimbursed the global fee. If a transfer of care does not occur, occasional post-discharge services for a physician other than the surgeon are reported with the appropriate E/M code. Modifiers are not required. If the transfer of care occurs immediately after surgery, the physician who provides the postoperative care while the patient remains in the hospital bills using subsequent hospital care codes. Once the patient is released from the hospital, the physician responsible for postoperative care bills using the surgical procedure code with modifier 55. The surgeon should bill the appropriate surgical procedure code with modifier 54. This situation can occur when an itinerant (traveling) surgeon is used. If a physician provides follow-up services during the postoperative period for minor procedures performed in the emergency department, the physician must bill the appropriate level of office visit code. The emergency department physician who performed the surgical service bills the surgical procedure code without a modifier. If the services of a physician, other than the surgeon, are required during a postoperative period for an underlying condition or medical complication, the other physician reports the appropriate E/M code, and split care modifiers are not required on the claim. For example, a cardiologist may manage the underlying cardiovascular condition during the postoperative period for a cardiovascular procedure that was performed by a cardiothoracic surgeon. If a patient is returned to surgery for a related procedure during the postoperative period and billed using modifier 78, the IHCP-allowed amount is calculated by multiplying the RBRVS fee amount by Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-325 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions the surgical care only (intraoperative) percentage on the Medicare fee schedule data base (MFSDB). In these situations, the preoperative percentage is not added to the intraoperative percentage for calculating the allowed amount described in the first example. In addition, a new postoperative period is not allowed for the related procedure. The number of postoperative days allowed following the return to surgery is equal to the number of postoperative days remaining from the original procedure. Billing certain modifiers on the same detail is restricted as follows to avoid processing issues: Modifier 54 (intraoperative) cannot be billed on the same detail as modifiers: 55, 78, 80, 81, 82, AA, P1 through P5, QJ, QK, QX, QZ, QO, QQ, X6, and W5 through W7, or the detail denies for an invalid modifier combination. Billing certain modifiers on the same detail is restricted as follows, to avoid processing issues: • Modifier 54 (intraoperative) cannot be billed on the same detail as modifiers: 55, 78, 80, 81, 82, P1 through P5, QK, QX, and QZ, or the detail denies for an invalid modifier combination. • Modifier 55 (postoperative) cannot be billed on the same detail as modifiers: 54, 78, 80, 81, 82, P1 through P5, QK, QX, and QZ, or the detail denies for an invalid modifier combination. Cosurgeons Cosurgeons must append modifier 62 to the surgical service. Modifier 62 cuts the reimbursement rate to 62.5 percent of the rate on file. Multiple procedures When two or more covered surgical procedures are performed during the same operative session, multiple surgery reductions apply to the procedures based on the following adjustments: • 100 percent of the global fee for the most expensive procedure • 50 percent of the global fee for the second most expensive procedure • 25 percent of the global fee for the remaining procedures All surgeries that are performed on the same day, by the same rendering physician, must be billed on the same claim form. Otherwise the claim may be denied and the original claim needs to be adjusted for any additional payment. Bilateral Procedures Providers submitting CMS-1500 claims or 837P transactions using modifier 50, indicating bilateral procedure, must enter only one unit in field 24G on the CMS-1500. The use of modifier 50 ensures that the procedure code is priced at the lower of 150 percent of the billed charge or the rate on file. Providers should note that if the CPT code description specifies the procedure as bilateral, modifier 50 should not be used on the CMS-1500 or 837P. Prior Authorization Chapter 6 of this manual provides additional information on PA for this service.

A physician must order the therapy. Providers must attach a current plan of treatment and progress notes about the necessity and effectiveness of therapy to the PA request and make this available for audit. • A qualified therapist or qualified assistant under the direct supervision of the therapist, as appropriate, must provide the therapy. • Therapy must be of such a level of complexity and sophistication, and the condition of the member must be such that they require the judgment, knowledge, and skills of a qualified therapist. • The IHCP reimburses only for medically reasonable and necessary therapy. • The IHCP does not cover therapy rendered for diversional, recreational, vocational, or avocational purpose, or for the remediation of learning disabilities or developmental activities that can be conducted by nonmedical personnel. • The IHCP covers therapy for rehabilitative services for a member no longer than two years from the initiation of the therapy unless a significant change in medical condition requires longer therapy. Providers can prior authorize habilitative services for a member younger than 18 years old for a longer period on a case-by-case basis. Providers can prior authorize respiratory therapy services for a longer period on a case-by-case basis. • The IHCP does not cover maintenance therapy. • When a member is enrolled in therapy, ongoing evaluations to assess progress and redefine therapy goals are part of the therapy program. The IHCP does not separately reimburse for ongoing evaluations. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-327 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions • One hour of billed therapy must include a minimum of 45 minutes of direct patient care with the balance of the hour spent in related patient services. • The IHCP does not approve therapy services for more than one hour per day, per type of therapy. The IHCP does not prior authorize requests for therapy that duplicate other services provided to a patient. The IHCP does not authorize therapy services when they duplicate nursing services required under 410 IAC 16.2-3-4. 405 IAC 5-22-8 states that physical therapy services are subject to the following restrictions: • A licensed physical therapist or certified therapist assistant under the direct, on-site supervision of a licensed physical therapist must perform physical therapy service. Only the activities in this subdivision related to the therapy can be performed by someone other than a licensed therapist or certified therapist assistant who must be under the direct on-site supervision of a licensed physical therapist. • The IHCP allowance for the modality provided by the licensed therapist includes payment for the following services, and providers may not bill separately for them: - Assisting patients in preparation for treatment, as necessary during treatment, and at the conclusion of treatment - Assembling and disassembling equipment - Assisting a physical therapist in the performance of appropriate activities related to the treatment of the individual patient - Following established procedures pertaining to the care of equipment and supplies - Preparing, maintaining, and cleaning treatment areas and maintaining supportive areas - Transporting patients, records, equipment, and supplies in accordance with established policies and procedures - Performing established clerical procedures • The IHCP limits evaluations and reevaluations to three hours of service per member evaluation. For the initial evaluation, the IHCP does not require PA. For any additional reevaluations, the IHCP does require PA unless conducted during the initial 30 days after hospital discharge and the discharge orders include physical therapy orders. The IHCP does not authorize reevaluations more than one time per year unless the provider submits documentation indicating significant change in the patient’s condition. The provider is responsible for determining whether evaluation services have been previously provided. • Physical therapy services ordered in writing to treat an acute medical condition provided in an outpatient setting may continue for a period not to exceed 12 one-hour sessions, or visits within 30 calendar days without PA. This exception includes the provision of splints, crutches, and canes. Providers must obtain PA for additional services. • The IHCP does not require PA for physical therapy services provided by an NF or large private or small ICF/MR, which are included in the facility’s per diem rate. The IHCP does not reimburse these services separately. 405 IAC 1-11.5-2 was amended to allow for the reimbursement of services provided by certified physical therapist assistants (PTAs). This rule amends 405 IAC 5-22-8 regarding supervision requirements for services provided by certified PTAs. The PTA is precluded from performing and interpreting tests, conducting initial or subsequent assessments, and developing treatment plans. Under direct supervision, a PTA is still required to consult with the supervising physical therapist daily to review treatment. The consultation can be either face-to-face or by telephone. 8-328 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Covered Procedures for Physical Therapist Assistants Effective April 1, 2006, the IHCP has identified procedures that can be performed by a PTA and are eligible for reimbursement. Providers must bill these services with the modifier HM – Less than a bachelor’s degree. Pricing for these services will reimburse at 75 percent of the reimbursement level for a physical therapist. Table 8.103 lists the physical therapy services that PTAs may perform. Note: This information does not apply to First Steps services.

Evaluation and testing codes are excluded from this list as PTAs may not administer tests or perform evaluations. 405 IAC 5-22-10 states that respiratory therapy services are subject to the following restrictions: • The IHCP reimburses for respiratory therapy service only when performed by a licensed respiratory therapist or a certified respiratory therapy technician who is an employee or contractor of a hospital, medical agency, or clinic. • The IHCP considers the equipment necessary for rendering respiratory therapy to be part of the provider’s capital equipment. • The IHCP does not require PA for oxygen provided in an NF, because it is included in the per diem for the facility and providers cannot bill separately for it. • For respiratory therapy given on an emergency basis, the IHCP does not require PA. • For a period not to exceed 14 hours or 14 calendar days, providers can perform respiratory therapy services ordered in writing for the acute medical diagnosis of asthma, pneumonia, bronchitis, and upper respiratory infection without PA. If the member requires additional services after that date, the provider must obtain PA. • For respiratory therapy services provided by an NF or large private or small ICF/MR, which are included in the facility’s established per diem rate, the IHCP does not require PA. 405 IAC 5-22-11 states that occupational therapy services are subject to the following restrictions: • 8-330 A registered occupational therapist or a certified occupational therapy assistant under the direct on-site supervision of a registered occupational therapist must perform the occupational therapy service. The registered occupational therapist must perform the evaluation for the IHCP to reimburse the provider. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions • The IHCP limits evaluations and reevaluations to three hours of service per evaluation. For the initial evaluation, the IHCP does not require PA. For any additional reevaluations, the IHCP does require PA unless conducted during the initial 30 days after hospital discharge when the discharge orders include occupational therapy orders. The IHCP does not authorize reevaluations more than one time per year unless the provider submits documentation indicating significant change in the patient’s condition. The provider is responsible for determining whether evaluations have been previously provided. • The IHCP does not cover general strengthening exercise programs for recuperative purposes. • The IHCP does not cover passive range-of-motion services as the only or primary mode of therapy. • The IHCP does not reimburse for occupational therapy psychiatric services. • Occupational therapy services ordered in writing to treat an acute medical condition provided in an outpatient setting may continue for a period not to exceed 12 one-hour sessions, or visits in 30 calendar days without PA. This exception includes provision of splints, crutches, and canes. Providers must obtain PA for additional services. • The IHCP does not require PA for occupational therapy services provided by an NF or large private or small ICF/MR, which are included in the facility’s established per diem rate. Note: For RBMC members, contact the appropriate MCO for billing and PA instructions. The IHCP reimburses for therapy services provided outside Indiana, subject to PA as defined in 405 IAC 5-5-2. Note: The IHCP does not cover home health agency services outside Indiana. Providers should refer to the section on Home Health Services in this manual for billing guidelines related to provision of therapy by HHAs. Outpatient Outpatient providers bill occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech therapy as stand-alone services. For these services, providers bill using the revenue code only and IHCP reimburses at a flat, statewide fee on a per-hour basis or unit billed. Providers cannot bill for fractional units for less than one hour. Providers must accumulate and report time in one-hour increments. The section Outpatient Services in Section 2 under the UB-04 Billing Instructions provides additional information. Hippotherapy The IHCP covers hippotherapy for physical therapy, effective April 1, 2005. To be covered, a licensed physical therapist must provide the services, and providers must bill for the services using the appropriate HCPCS code from the following list: • 97110 – Therapeutic exercises to develop strength and endurance, range of motion, and flexibility • 97112 – Neuromuscular reeducation of movement, balance, coordination, kinesthetic sense, posture, or proprioception for sitting and standing activities • 97530 – Therapeutic activities to improve functional performance Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-331 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions • 97533 – Sensory integrative techniques to enhance sensory processing and promote adaptive responses to environmental demands. This code can be used only for patients with a diagnosis of traumatic brain injury (TBI). A physician must order the services and include them in the patient’s treatment plan. Existing PA requirements for physical therapy apply to hippotherapy. Note: Procedure code S8940 (hippotherapy per person, equestrian, hippotherapy, per session), effective January 1, 2005, is not covered by the IHCP. Traumatic Brain Injury 405 IAC 5-29-1 (25) (I) states that cognitive rehabilitation is a noncovered service, except for the treatment of traumatic brain injury. The IHCP limits CPT code 97532 – Development of cognitive skills to improve attention, memory, problem solving (including compensatory training), direct (one-on-one) patient contact by the provider, each 15 minutes, and CPT code 97533 – Sensory integrative techniques to enhance sensory processing and promote adaptive responses to environmental demands, direct (one-on-one) patient contact by the provider, each 15 minutes, to the specific traumatic brain injury diagnoses listed in Table 8.104.

The term advanced life support may include any of the following acts of care: • Defibrillation • Endotracheal intubation • Parenteral injection of appropriate medications • Electrocardiogram interpretation • Emergency management of trauma and illness The IHCP provides reimbursement for medically necessary emergency and nonemergency ALS ambulance services when the level of service rendered meets the EMSC definition of ALS. Note: In accordance with Indiana Code (IC)16-1-31, vehicles and staff that provide emergency services must be certified by the EMSC to be eligible for reimbursement for transports involving either ALS or basic life support (BLS) services. Basic Life Support – BLS The EMSC defines BLS as the following: • Assessment of emergency patients • Administration of oxygen • Use of mechanical breathing devices • Application of antishock trousers • Performance of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) • Application of dressings and bandage materials • Application of splinting and immobilization devices • Use of lifting and moving devices to ensure safe transport Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-335 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions • Use of an automatic or semiautomatic defibrillator • Administration of epinephrine through an auto-injector • An emergency medical technician-basic advanced may perform the following: - Electrocardiogram interpretation - Manual external defibrillation - Intravenous fluid therapy The terms basic life support and BLS services do not include invasive medical care techniques or advanced life support. The IHCP provides reimbursement for medically necessary emergency and nonemergency BLS ambulance services when the level of service rendered meets the EMSC definition of BLS. Commercial or Common Ambulatory Service – CAS The IHCP provides reimbursement for transportation of ambulatory (walking) members to or from an IHCP-covered service. Commercial or Common Ambulatory Service (CAS) transportation may be provided in any type of vehicle; however, providers must bill all transportation services according to the level of service rendered. For example, if an ambulance provides transportation of an ambulatory member but no ALS or BLS services are medically necessary for the transport of the member, the ambulance provider must bill the CAS charges. For CAS transportation, providers can bill separately for base rate, waiting time, and mileage, and receive reimbursement. Nonambulatory Service (Wheelchair Van) – NAS The IHCP reimburses for nonambulatory services (NAS) or wheelchair services when a member must travel in a wheelchair to or from an IHCP-covered service. Providers must bill claims for ambulatory members transported in a vehicle equipped to transport nonambulatory members according to the CAS level of service and rate, and they must not bill according to the vehicle type. For NAS transportation, providers can bill separately for base rate, waiting time, and mileage, and receive reimbursement. Taxi Taxi providers transport ambulatory members and may operate under authority from a local governing body (city taxi or livery license). Taxi providers whose rates are regulated by local ordinance must bill the metered or zoned rate, as established by local ordinance, and the IHCP reimburses them up to the maximum allowable fee. The IHCP reimburses taxi providers whose rates are not regulated by local ordinance at the lower of their submitted charge or the maximum allowable fee based on trip length. The IHCP does not separately reimburse taxi providers for mileage above the maximum allowable rate for the trip; however, providers must have mileage documented on the driver’s ticket by odometer readings or mapping software. Rotary Air Ambulance Transportation Base Rate and Mileage Effective for dates of service on or after December 25, 2009, the IHCP provides reimbursement for a base rate and mileage. The base rate and mileage will be reimbursed at the lower of the usual and customary charge or the IHCP established max fee. The base rate is an all-inclusive rate including coverage of treatments and services that are an integral part of care while in transit; it includes but is not limited to oxygen, drugs, supplies, reusable devices and equipment, and extra attendants. 8-336 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Table 8.105 – Rotary Air Ambulance Codes Effective December 25, 2009 Provider Specialty 261: Air Ambulance HCPCS Code Description A0431 Ambulance service, conventional air service, transport, one way (rotary wing) A0436 Rotary wing air mileage, per statute mile The air ambulance mileage rate is calculated to the nearest suitable hospital per actual loaded (patient onboard) miles flown and is expressed in statute miles (not nautical miles). Transportation providers are expected to transport members along the shortest, most efficient route to the nearest suitable hospital. All rotary air transportation providers must document mileage on the trip ticket. Providers must bill the IHCP for whole units only. Partial mileage units must be rounded to the nearest whole unit. For example, if the provider transports a member between 15.5 miles and 16.0 miles, the provider must bill 16 miles. If the provider transports the member between 15.0 and 15.4 miles, the provider must bill 15 miles. Providers are reminded that additional reimbursement is not available for multiple passengers in a rotary air ambulance, nor is separate reimbursement available for an accompanying parent/attendant in a rotary air ambulance. Prior Authorization Providers are reminded that prior authorization is required for air ambulance services. The IHCP acknowledges that PA for rotary air transport will be approved after services have been rendered due to the nature of the services. A PA request must include a brief description of the care and description of the clinical circumstances necessitating the need for the transportation. Providers must indicate that the transportation was an emergency by using the Y indicator in field 24I on the CMS-1500 or in the Emergency Indicator on the 837P. Medical Necessity Rotary air ambulance transport is a covered service when the member has a potentially life-threatening condition that does not permit the use of another form of transportation. The IHCP reimburses rotary air transportation services to a hospital facility under medically appropriate circumstances. Medical necessity is only established when the member’s condition is such that the time needed to transport a member by ground, or the instability of transportation by ground, poses a threat to the member’s survival or seriously endangers the member’s health. The list below includes examples of medical conditions in which rapid transport may be necessary. This list does not guarantee reimbursement nor is it intended to be all inclusive. Diagnosis alone does not serve as justification for reimbursement. • Intracranial bleeding requiring neurosurgical intervention • Cardiogenic shock • Burns requiring treatment in a burn center • Conditions requiring treatment in a Hyperbaric Oxygen Unit • Multiple severe injuries • Life-threatening trauma Generally, transport by rotary wing air ambulance may be necessary because the member’s condition requires rapid transport to a treatment facility, and great distances or other obstacles preclude such rapid delivery by ground transport to the nearest appropriate facility. Transport by rotary wing air ambulance may also be necessary because the member is inaccessible by a ground or water vehicle. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-337 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Air transport must be to the nearest suitable hospital. If the air transport was medically necessary but the member could have been treated at a nearer hospital than one to which they were transported, the air transportation mileage reimbursement is limited to the rate for the distance from the point of pickup to the nearer hospital. Additionally, transportation by air ambulance is covered only for transport to a hospital. Air ambulance services are not covered for transport to a facility that is not an acute care hospital. Transport to a nursing facility, a physician’s office, or a beneficiary’s home by rotary air ambulance is not reimbursable. Special Circumstances In addition to the general instructions above, additional information concerning coverage and billing is included below for three identified special circumstances – hospital-to-hospital transfers, patient expiration, and bad weather. Hospital-to-Hospital Transfer Air ambulance transport is covered for transfer of a patient from one hospital to another if the medical appropriateness criteria is met, for example, transportation by ground ambulance would endanger the member’s health, and the transferring hospital does not have adequate facilities to provide the medical services needed by the patient. Examples of such specialized medical services that are generally not available at all types of facilities may include, but are not limited to, burn care, cardiac care, trauma care, and critical care. A patient transported from one hospital to another hospital is covered only if the hospital to which the patient is transferred is the nearest one with appropriate facilities. Reimbursement is not available for transport from a hospital capable of treating the patient because the patient and/or family prefer a specific hospital or physician. Patient Expiration When the member expires, the IHCP payment amount depends on the time at which the member is pronounced dead by an individual authorized by the State to make such pronouncements. If the time of death pronouncement is prior to takeoff to point of pickup, with notice to the dispatcher and time to abort the flight, no payment is made. This includes scenarios in which the air ambulance has taxied to the runway and/or has been cleared for takeoff but has not actually taken off. If the member is pronounced dead after takeoff to point of pickup, but before the member is loaded, the appropriate air base rate (A0431) with no mileage is reimbursed. The provider should use the QL modifier when submitting such a claim (A0431 QL). If the provider bills a mileage code in conjunction with a base rate and QL modifier, the mileage code will be denied with the following audit 6194 explanation: Mileage is not payable with this service. When the member is pronounced dead after being loaded onboard but prior to or upon arrival at the receiving facility, the provider may bill for the air ambulance base rate and mileage as if the member had not expired. Table 8.106 – Billing Upon Beneficiary Death After Takeoff but Before Loading Provider Specialty 261: Air Ambulance HCPCS Code A0431 QL Description Ambulance service, conventional air service, transport, one way (rotary wing) Bad Weather Providers should note that if the flight is aborted due to bad weather or other circumstance beyond the pilot’s control any time before the beneficiary is loaded onboard, that is, prior to or after takeoff to point of pickup, the IHCP will not reimburse for the flight. If the flight is aborted due to bad weather after the beneficiary is loaded, the appropriate base and mileage codes may be reimbursed. 8-338 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Retroactive Eligibility If a member becomes retroactively eligible for IHCP coverage and notifies the provider of retroactive eligibility, the provider must follow guidelines outlined in Chapter 2 of this manual. When notified of member eligibility, the provider must refund any payments by the member for covered services (other than the IHCP Package C copayments) rendered on or after the eligibility effective date. Definition of a Trip For billing purposes, the IHCP defines a trip as transporting a member from the initial point of pickup to the drop-off point at the final destination. Transportation must be the least expensive type of transportation available that meets the medical needs of the member. Providers must bill trips according to the level of service rendered and not according to the vehicle type. Providers must bill for all transportation services provided to the same member on the same date of service on one claim form. If the provider makes a round trip for the same member, same date of service, and same level of base code, the provider should submit both runs on the same detail with two units of service to indicate a round trip. Additionally, the provider must bill all mileage for the trip on the one detail with the total number of miles associated for the round trip. If the provider transports a member on the same date of service but with different trip levels (for example, the to trip was a CAS trip, and the return trip was a NAS trip with mileage for each base), the provider must bill these base trips on two different claim forms with the corresponding mileage for each base. Note: In the Units field on the CMS-1500 or Service Unit Count field on the 837P, the provider must use a 1 with the base unit code to indicate a one-way trip and a 2 to indicate a two-way trip. The provider must use the transportation modifiers to indicate the place of origin and destination for each service. Multiple Destinations If the provider transports a member to multiple points in succession, the provider cannot bill for a trip between each point of the destination. The following examples explain this concept: • Example 1: A vehicle picks up a member at home and transports the member to the physician’s office. This is a one-way trip. • Example 2: A vehicle picks up a member from home and transports the member to the physician’s office. The provider leaves, and later the same vehicle picks up the member from the physician’s office and transports the member back to the member’s home. This is considered two one-way trips. • Example 3: A vehicle picks up the member from the physician’s office and transports the member to the laboratory for a blood draw, waits outside the laboratory for the member, and then transports the member home. This is a one-way trip, even though there was a stop along the way. A stop along the way is not considered a separate trip. • Example 4: A vehicle picks up Member A at the member’s home and begins to transport Member A to the dialysis center. Along the way, the vehicle stops to pick up Member B at a nursing home and transports Member A and Member B to the dialysis center. The stop at the nursing home is not considered a separate trip, and the transportation of Member A from home to the dialysis center is considered a one-way trip. Note: Table 8.110 includes information about the policy for multiple passengers. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-339 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Modifiers Use single-character modifiers for ambulance transportation in combination to report services to CMS. The first character indicates the transport’s place of origin, and the second character indicates the destination. Table 8.107 lists the modifiers used for ambulance transports. Table 8.107 – Modifiers – Ambulance Transport Modifier Description D Diagnostic or therapeutic site, other than P or H E Residential, domiciliary, or custodial facility (nursing home, not SNF) G Hospital-based dialysis facility (hospital or hospital-related) H Hospital I Site of transfer between types of ambulance (for example, airport or helicopter pad) J Non hospital-based dialysis facility N Skilled nursing facility (SNF) P Physician’s office (includes health maintenance organization [HMO] nonhospital facility, clinic, and so forth) R Residence S Scene of accident or acute event X Intermediate stop at physician’s office en route to the hospital (can only be used as a designation code in the second position of a modifier) Prior Authorization The IHCP requires PA for the following transportation services: • Trips exceeding 20 one-way trips per member, per rolling 12-month period, with certain exceptions as described in this billing guide • Trips of 50 miles or more one way, including all codes associated with the trip (wait time, parent or attendant, additional attendant, and mileage) • Interstate transportation or transportation services rendered by a provider located out-of-state in a nondesignated area • Train or bus services • Airline or air ambulance services With their PA requests, providers must include a brief description of the anticipated care and a description of the clinical circumstances necessitating the transportation. The appropriate MCO or CMO reviews the PA requests and sends copies of the decisions to the members and the rendering providers. Transportation providers may request authorization for members that exceed 20 one-way trips. Examples of situations that require frequent medical intervention include, but are not limited to, prenatal care, chemotherapy, and certain other therapy services. The IHCP does not approve additional trips for routine medical services. The IHCP may grant PA up to one year following the date of service. 8-340 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Twenty One-Way Trip Limitation and Exemptions The IHCP limits transportation to 20 one-way trips per member, per rolling 12-month period. Providers must request PA for members who exceed 20 one-way trips if the member requires frequent medical intervention. However, some services are exempt from the 20 one-way trip limitation. The following sections include information about those services. Emergency Transportation Services Emergency ambulance transportation is exempt from the 20 one-way trip limitation. Providers must indicate that the transportation was an emergency by using the Y indicator in field 24c on the CMS1500 or in the Emergency Indicator on the 837P. Hospital Admission or Discharge Transportation services for transporting a member to a hospital for admission or for transporting the member home following discharge from the hospital are exempt from the 20 one-way trip limitation. This includes interhospital transportation when the member is discharged from one hospital for the purpose of admission to another hospital. Providers must use the transportation modifiers to indicate the place of origin and destination for each service. Note: Transporting an IHCP member to or from a hospital for any reason unrelated to an admission or discharge is not exempt from the 20-trip limitation. Members on Renal Dialysis or Members Residing in Nursing Homes Members on renal dialysis and members residing in nursing homes are exempt from the 20 one-way trip limitation. Providers must file claims for members undergoing dialysis or members in nursing homes with one of the diagnosis codes listed in Table 8.108. Enter the diagnosis code on the CMS1500 or 837P, and place a 1 in field 24E of the CMS-1500 claim form or the Diagnosis Code Pointer on the 837P to indicate that the first diagnosis code applies. Note: The IHCP requires transportation providers to complete field 24E on the claim form only for claims being submitted for dialysis or nursing home patients. Failure to complete this field correctly may result in the IHCP denying the claim when the member meets the 20 one-way trip limitation. The aforementioned renal dialysis and nursing facility diagnosis codes must only be used when appropriate and medically necessary. These diagnosis codes should not be used to circumvent the prior authorization process required for trips exceeding the 20 one-way trip limitation. Table 8.108 – Diagnosis Codes for Transportation of Renal Dialysis Patients and Patients Residing in Nursing Homes Diagnosis Code Usage V56.0, V56.1, or V56.8 Patient undergoing renal dialysis V70.5 Patient residing in nursing facility Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-341 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Mileage The IHCP expects transportation providers to transport members along the shortest, most efficient route to and from a destination. All transportation providers must document mileage on the driver’s ticket using odometer readings or mapping software programs. The IHCP reimburses for mileage, in addition to the base rate, under the following circumstances: • The IHCP reimburses ambulance providers for loaded mileage for each mile of the trip regardless of the type or level of service being billed. • The IHCP reimburses CAS and NAS providers for loaded mileage when they transport a member more than 10 miles one way. • The IHCP does not reimburse taxi providers for mileage and does not require them to submit mileage with their claim. However, providers must document mileage on the driver’s ticket using odometer readings or mapping software, as outlined in the Documentation Requirements For Transportation Services section. • Although the IHCP automatically deducts the first 10 miles of a CAS or NAS trip from each oneway trip, CAS and NAS providers must bill for all mileage (including the first 10 miles) to ensure proper reimbursement. For trips less than 10 miles, the IHCP does not require the provider to bill mileage; however, if the provider does bill mileage, the IHCP processes the mileage as a denied line item. • For trips and associated mileage in excess of 50 miles one way, the IHCP requires PA. If the provider has not obtained PA, the IHCP denies reimbursement for mileage, the base rate, and any other transportation services related to the trip. Providers must bill for all transportation services provided to the same member on the same date of service on one claim form. • Providers must use procedure code A0425 and the appropriate U modifier for transportation services in conjunction with ALS, BLS, CAS, or NAS base rates to report mileage. Providers must not fragment mileage. Providers must submit mileage for round trips on one detail line using the appropriate code listed in Table 8.109. • IHCP made procedure code S0215 – Nonemergency transportation; mileage, per mile, nonreimbursable. Providers must bill the appropriate mileage code listed in Table 8.109. In addition, providers must not report procedure code S0215 with the codes listed in Table 8.109 to avoid IHCP reimbursing them incorrectly. Table 8.109 – Mileage Codes and Descriptions Code Description A0425 U1 ALS ground mileage, per statute mile A0425 U2 BLS ground mileage, per statute mile A0425 U3 CAS ground mileage, per statute mile A0425 U5 NAS ground mileage, per statute mile Mileage Units and Rounding Providers must bill the IHCP for whole units only. For partial mileage units, round to the nearest whole unit. For example, if the provider transports a member between 15.5 miles and 16.0 miles, the provider must bill 16 miles. If the provider transports the member between 15.0 and 15.4 miles, the provider must bill 15 miles. 8-342 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Multiple Passengers When providers transport two or more members simultaneously from the same county to the same vicinity for medical services, the IHCP reimburses for the second and subsequent member transported for medical services in a single CAS or NAS vehicle at one-half the base rate. The IHCP reimburses the full base code, mileage, and waiting time for the first member only. For example, providers should bill no mileage in conjunction with T2004 – Nonemergency transport; commercial carrier, multi-pass, individualized service provided to more than one patient in the same setting. The IHCP does not provide reimbursement for multiple passengers in ambulances or family member vehicles. The IHCP does not provide additional reimbursement for multiple passengers when the billing provider does not bill non-IHCP customers for these services. Table 8.110 shows the correct coding methods for multiple passengers. Table 8.110 – Coding Transportation for Multiple Passengers Type of Transportation First Member Second and Subsequent Members Commercial Ambulatory Services T2003 for base rate. A0425 U3 for mileage. T2007 U3 for waiting time, if applicable. T2004 for base rate. No reimbursement for mileage. No reimbursement for waiting time. Nonambulatory Services A0130 for base rate. A0425 U5 for mileage. T2007 U5 for waiting time, if applicable. A0130 TT for base rate. No reimbursement for mileage. No reimbursement for waiting time. Taxi, nonregulated, 0-5 miles A0100 UA (no mileage). A0100 UA TT (no mileage). Taxi, nonregulated, 6-10 miles A0100 UB (no mileage). A0100 UB TT (no mileage). Taxi, nonregulated, 11 or more miles A0100 UC (no mileage). A0100 UC TT (no mileage). Note: PA for a base code includes the base code and the multiple passenger code that corresponds to the approved base code. When last minute changes in scheduling modify the service from a single passenger to a multiple passenger, the provider must use the appropriate code. Accompanying Parent or Attendant When members younger than 18 years of age need an adult to accompany them to a medical service, the provider should bill the appropriate accompanying parent or attendant code. When adult members need an attendant to travel or stay with them for a medical service, the provider should bill the appropriate accompanying parent or attendant code. The following are guidelines for billing the accompanying parent or attendant codes: • Bill the procedure code for the base rate and the accompanying parent or attendant under the IHCP member’s identification number (RID). • The IHCP does not provide additional reimbursement for accompanying parent or attendant when the billing provider does not bill non-IHCP customers for like services. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-343 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions • The provider must maintain documentation on the driver’s ticket to support that the accompanying parent or attendant was transported with the IHCP member. This documentation must include the name, signature, and relation of the accompanying parent or attendant. Table 8.111 lists the base rates and the applicable accompanying parent or attendant code. The provider must bill the base code and the accompanying parent or attendant code using the member’s information. The IHCP does not apply procedure codes for accompanying parent or attendant to the member’s 20 one-way trip limitation. The IHCP requires prior authorization for an accompanying parent or attendant only when the trip exceeds 50 miles one way. Table 8.111 – Procedure Codes for Accompanying Parent or Attendant Type of Transportation Base Code Accompanying Parent/Attendant Commercial Ambulatory Services T2003 T2001 Nonambulatory Services A0130 A0130 TK Taxi, nonregulated, 0-5 miles A0100 UA A0100 UA TK Taxi, nonregulated, 6-10 miles A0100 UB A0100 UB TK Taxi, nonregulated, 11 or more miles A0100 UC A0100 UC TK Additional Attendant Transportation providers sometimes need an additional attendant to help load a member. In situations where the driver cannot load the member without help, such as when a wheelchair-bound member lives upstairs and the residence has no wheelchair ramp, the provider needs an additional attendant. This code is not subject to the 20-trip limit; however, if the trip exceeds 50 miles one way, the IHCP requires prior authorization for all procedure codes, including additional attendant codes. The additional attendant who assists must be an employee of the billing provider and is not required to remain for the trip. Providers must document the need for an additional attendant on the driver’s ticket. The IHCP may subject the documentation to postpayment review. The IHCP limits the number of additional attendants to a maximum of two extra units, although usually one attendant is sufficient. The IHCP limits reimbursement for an additional attendant to NAS or wheelchair van and ambulance transportation. For ambulance providers, the additional attendant is the third or fourth attendant, because the IHCP requires ambulances to have two attendants. The IHCP does not apply procedure codes A0424 – Extra ambulance attendant, ground (ALS or BLS) or air (rotary or fixed wing) and A0130 U6 – Nonemergency transportation; wheelchair van, additional attendant to the member’s 20 one-way trip limitation. The IHCP requires prior authorization for procedure codes A0424 and A0130 U6 when the trip exceeds 50 miles one way. Table 8.112 – Procedure Codes for an Additional Attendant Type of Transportation Nonambulatory or wheelchair van transportation 8-344 Procedure Code A0130 U6 Description Nonambulatory transportation; wheelchair van, U6 = additional attendant Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Type of Transportation Ambulance transportation (ALS and BLS) Procedure Code A0424 Description Extra ambulance attendant, ground (ALS or BLS) or air (fixed or rotary winged); (requires medical review) Waiting Time The IHCP reimburses for waiting time in excess of 30 minutes only when the provider parks the vehicle outside the medical service provider, awaiting the return of the member to the vehicle, and if the member is transported 50 miles or more one way. The provider must obtain PA for all codes associated with trips of 50 miles or more one way, including waiting time. The IHCP does not cover the first 30 minutes of waiting time; however, the provider must include the total waiting time or else the IHCP cannot pay the claim appropriately. For all procedure codes that providers use to bill waiting time, providers should use one unit of service for every 30 minutes of waiting time. When providers wait between 15 to 30 minutes, they should round up the partial 30-minute increments to the next unit. For example, if providers wait 45 minutes, they would bill the units of service as two, or 2.0. For partial 30-minute increments of less than 15 minutes, providers must round down. For example, if providers wait one hour and 10 minutes, providers must bill the units of service for waiting time as two, or 2.0. Providers must maintain documentation, including start and stop times, on the driver’s ticket to support the waiting time billed. Ambulance Transportation Services The IHCP covers emergency and nonemergency ALS and BLS ambulance transport services. The IHCP exempts emergency ambulance services from the 20 one-way trip limit and does not require PA. In addition, the IHCP exempts emergency ambulance services from the copayment requirement. To indicate that the service rendered was an emergency, providers must use the Y indicator in field 24c on the CMS-1500 or the Emergency Indicator on the 837P to bill emergency services. Remember that transportation must be the least expensive type of transportation available that meets the medical needs of the member. Note: The IHCP requires PA for air ambulance and interstate transportation services. In addition, the IHCP requires PA for any transportation services provided by a provider located in an out-of-state, nondesignated area. Level of Service Rendered Versus Level of Response Providers must bill all transportation services according to the level of service rendered and not according to the provider’s level of response or vehicle type. The IHCP provides reimbursement for emergency and nonemergency ambulance services; however, the IHCP covers ALS services only when the level of service is medically necessary and BLS services are not appropriate due to the medical conditions of the member being transported. Ambulance providers should refer to the Indiana EMSC definitions of ALS and BLS services listed in Title 836 of the IAC. Ambulance providers must bill the IHCP according to the level of service rendered. The following examples explain the level of service policy: • Example 1: ALS personnel and ambulance respond to a call. On arrival, the personnel find the member to need emergency medical transport but no ALS services. In this case, the provider must use the BLS emergency transport code. Subsequently, if no emergency is present, providers must use the nonemergency BLS ambulance transport code to transport the member. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-345 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions • Example 2: An ambulance responds to a call to transport a member to a scheduled appointment. Upon arrival, the ambulance personnel discover that a CAS service or wheelchair van can transport the member. The ambulance provider can either call for the appropriate vehicle or transport the patient in the ambulance. If the ambulance provider transports the member, the provider must bill the IHCP for the appropriate CAS or NAS transportation code(s). Table 8.113 includes a complete listing of ambulance transportation codes. The procedure codes listed in Tables 8.113 and 8.114 are valid for ambulance providers to bill for CAS or NAS level of service. The IHCP no longer reimburses for procedure codes A0426 U3, A0428 U3, A0426 U5, and A0428 U5. Ambulance providers must bill the most appropriate CAS or NAS code listed in Tables 8.113 and 8.114 if the level of service does not meet the EMSC definition of ALS or BLS services. The IHCP still permits ambulance providers to bill A0425 U1 or A0425 U2 to be reimbursed for mileage. Table 8.113 – Valid CAS Codes for Ambulance Providers Procedure Code Description T2003 Nonemergency transportation, encounter/trip T2007 U3 Transportation waiting time, air ambulance and nonemergency vehicle, one-half (1/2) hour increments; CAS Table 8.114 – Valid NAS Codes for Ambulance Providers Procedure Code Description A0130 Nonemergency transportation, wheelchair van base rate A0130 U6 Nonemergency transportation, wheelchair van base rate; additional attendant T2007 U5 Transportation waiting time, air ambulance and nonemergency vehicle, one-half (1/2) hour increments; NAS Note: Ambulance providers must bill procedure codes T2003 and T2007 U3 when the level of service rendered is that of a CAS provider. Ambulance providers must bill procedure codes A0130, A0130 U6, and T2007 U5 when the level of service rendered is that of a NAS or wheelchair van provider. The IHCP still permits ambulance providers to bill A0425 U1 or A0425 U2 to be reimbursed for mileage. Ambulance Mileage The IHCP reimburses for each mile of the trip only for loaded ambulance mileage. The provider’s documentation must contain mileage from mapping software or odometer readings indicating starting and ending trip mileage. Providers must use A0425 U1 – Ground mileage, per statute mile; ALS or A0425 U2 – Ground mileage, per statute mile; BLS to bill ambulance mileage. The IHCP uses U1 and U2 modifiers to differentiate between ALS and BLS mileage. The IHCP denies claims billed without the U1 or U2 modifier and requires providers to resubmit the claim with the appropriate modifier. Neonatal Ambulance Transportation The IHCP makes reimbursement available for specialized neonatal ambulance services especially equipped for interhospital transfers of high-risk or premature infants only when the member has been discharged from one hospital for admission to another hospital. Providers must use procedure code 8-346 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions A0225 – Ambulance service, neonatal transport, base rate, emergency transport, one way only for neonatal ambulance transport. Oxygen and Oxygen Supplies Providers must not bill procedure code A0422 – Ambulance (ALS or BLS) oxygen, and oxygen supplies, life sustaining situation with ALS codes A0426, A0427, and A0433. These base codes for ALS transport include the reimbursement for supplies and oxygen in an ALS situation. Providers can bill procedure code A0422 with BLS codes A0428 or A0429, if medically necessary. Emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics must document the medical necessity for oxygen use in the medical record maintained by the provider. Member Copayments The IHCP requires a copayment for transportation services. Providers should review 405 IAC 5-30-2 for complete copayment narratives. The IHCP determines the member’s copayment amount based on the reimbursement for the base rate or loading fee only. The IHCP does not require a copayment for an accompanying parent or attendant. Transportation providers may collect a copayment amount from the IHCP member equal to those listed in Table 8.115. Table 8.115 – Transportation Copayments Transportation Service Member Copayment Transportation services that pay $10.00 or less $0.50 each one way trip Transportation services that pay $10.01 to $50.00 $1.00 each one way trip Transportation services that pay $50.01 or more $2.00 each one way trip Exemptions to Copayments for Transportation Services The IHCP exempts the following services from the copayment requirement: • Emergency ambulance services • Services furnished to members younger than 18 years old • Services furnished to pregnant women • Services furnished to members who are in hospitals, NFs, ICFs/MR, or other medical institutions - This includes instances where a provider transports a member for the purpose of admission or discharge. • Transportation services provided under an MCO to its Hoosier Healthwise enrollees Federal Guidelines for Copayment Policy According to 42 CFR 447.15, providers may not deny services to any member due to the member’s inability to pay the copayment amount on the date of service. Pursuant to this federal requirement, this service guarantee does not apply to a member who is able to pay, nor does a member’s inability to pay eliminate his or her liability for the copayment. It is the member’s responsibility to inform the provider Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-347 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions that he or she cannot afford to pay the copayment on the date of service. The provider may bill the member for copayments not paid on the date of service. Package C Transportation Services Hoosier Healthwise Package C members are eligible to receive emergency ambulance services, subject to the prudent layperson definition of emergency in 407 IAC 1-1-6. The IHCP covers nonemergency ambulance transportation between medical facilities when ordered by the treating physician. Risk-Based Managed Care Hoosier Healthwise Services The MCO is responsible for transportation services for risk-based managed care (RBMC) members. Providers must contact the appropriate MCO for more information about transportation guidelines for RBMC members. Noncovered Transportation Services The IHCP does not reimburse for the following transportation services: • One-way trips exceeding 20 per member, per rolling 12-month period, except when the provider documents medically necessity for additional trips through the PA process • Trips of 50 miles or more one way, unless the provider obtains PA • First 30 minutes of waiting time for any type of conveyance, including ambulance • Nonemergency transportation provided by any of the following: - A volunteer with no vested or personal interest in the member - An interested individual or neighbor of the member - A caseworker or social worker • Ancillary, nonemergency transportation charges including, but not limited to, the following: - Parking fees - Tolls - Member meals or lodging - Escort meals or lodging • Disposable medical supplies, other than oxygen, provided by a transportation provider • Transfer of durable medical equipment, either from the member’s residence to place of storage, or from the place of storage to the member’s residence • Use of red lights and siren for an emergency ambulance call • All interhospital transportation services, except when the member has been discharged from one hospital for admission to another hospital • Delivery services for prescribed drugs, including transporting a member to or from a pharmacy to pick up a prescribed drug Documentation Requirements for Transportation Services Providers must support each claim with the following documentation on the driver’s ticket or run sheet: • 8-348 Complete date of service; including day, month, and year of service, such as 12/15/09 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions • Complete member name and address of pickup, including street address, city, county, state, and ZIP Code • Member identification number • Member signature, and if the member is unable to sign, the driver should document that “the patient was unable to sign” and list the reason for the inability • Waiting time; including the actual start and stop time of the waiting period, such as wait time from 1 p.m. to 3:20 p.m. • Complete service provider name and address, including street address, city, county, state, and ZIP Code Note: If the service provider’s name is abbreviated on the driver’s ticket, the provider must document the complete provider name or maintain a facility abbreviation listing. This helps to expedite the postpayment review process. • Name of the driver who provided transportation service • Vehicle odometer reading at the beginning and end of each trip or mileage from mapping software, including the date that the provider performed the transportation service and the specific starting and destination address - If the provider used mapping software, it must indicate the shortest route. Note: All providers, including taxi providers, must document mileage using either odometer readings or mapping software. Taxi providers must document the distance traveled to support the metered or zoned rate or mileage code billed. • Indication of a one-way or round trip • Indication of CAS or NAS transportation • Name and relationship of any accompanying parent or attendant to support the accompanying parent or attendant code billed, if applicable Note: When providers bill an attendant or parent as part of the transport, the parent or attendant must also sign the driver’s ticket. Providers are responsible to verify that they are transporting the member to or from a covered service. Providers are responsible to maintain documentation that supports each transport and/or service provided. Transportation providers put themselves at risk of recoupment of payment if they do not maintain the required documentation or cannot verify covered services. Registration Requirements Commercial or Common Ambulatory and Nonambulatory Providers • The IHCP requires all for profit-only CAS and NAS providers to certify annually through the Indiana Motor Carrier Services (MCS) and obtain a Motor Carrier Certification. • Providers must keep a copy of the certification for their records. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-349 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Taxi Providers • Providers must have documentation showing operating authority from a local governing body (city taxi or livery license), if applicable. • Providers must keep a copy of the documentation for their records. Ambulance • Providers must have an Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Commission certification. • Providers must keep a copy of the certification for their records. • Vehicles and staff that provide ambulance services must be certified by the EMS Commission to be eligible for reimbursement for transports involving either advanced life support or basic life support services. Providers who fail to maintain the EMS Commission certification on all vehicles involved in transporting members risk termination of the IHCP Provider Agreement. Bus • Providers must have an MCS certificate from the Indiana Department of Revenue. • Providers must keep a copy of the certification for their records. Family Member • Providers must have an authorization letter from the local Office of Family and Children (OFC) (contact caseworker). • Providers must keep a copy of the authorization letter for their records. Air Ambulance • Providers must have EMS Commission Air Ambulance certification. • Providers must keep a copy of the certification for their records. Chapter 4 of this manual includes detailed information about enrollment requirements and responsibilities. The IHCP may refer providers who fail to maintain the required registration documentation to the appropriate governing agencies. Transportation Code Sets The IHCP limits transportation providers to specific codes based on the provider specialty listed on the provider enrollment file. Tables 8.116 through 8.122 list the procedures codes allowed for each transportation provider specialty. Each table lists the national code(s), and the procedure code description for each provider specialty.

Additional information about VFC vaccine administration follows in this section. Provider Enrollment in the VFC Program The Indiana Immunization Program, ISDH, handles VFC provider enrollment and education as well as VFC vaccine orders and distribution. To participate in the VFC Program, providers should complete the following steps: • Contact the ISDH and request VFC provider enrollment forms • Complete and mail the provider enrollment forms • Receive appropriate training and technical assistance • Order vaccines periodically, as needed, and maintain appropriate vaccine supply records 8-354 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Providers may contact the ISDH about the VFC at the following address: Indiana Immunization Program Indiana State Department of Health 2 North Meridian Street Indianapolis, IN 46204 Telephone: (317) 233-7704 or 1-800-701-0704 Fax: (317) 233-3719 Vaccines for Children Forms To screen patients for VFC eligibility, providers may use the Patient Eligibility Screening Record form, available from the ISDH. This form includes a box to indicate Hoosier Healthwise Package C eligible children, as well as a box to indicate Hoosier Healthwise Package A (Medicaid) eligible children. Providers may use this form or may incorporate it into existing clinical forms. Because different funding sources provide the free vaccines, the ISDH must separately track the number of doses administered to Package A (Medicaid) enrolled children from those administered to children enrolled in Hoosier Healthwise Package C. The Patient Eligibility Screening Record and the Vaccine Accountability Tally Sheet forms available from ISDH incorporate tracking for vaccines administered to children enrolled in Hoosier Healthwise Package A and Package C. Vaccine Storage The IHCP does not require providers to physically separate vaccine stock for children in the VFC Program from vaccine stock for Hoosier Healthwise Package C children. No additional storage rules are necessary. VFC Vaccine Coverage and Billing Procedures Currently, the VFC Program offers free vaccines against the following diseases: • Diphtheria • Hemophilus influenza type B • Hepatitis A • Hepatitis B • Human Papilloma virus • Influenza • Measles • Meningococcal disease • Mumps • Rubella • Pertussis • Pneumococcal disease • Polio • Rotavirus Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-355 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions • Tetanus • Varicella All Hoosier Healthwise members 18 years old or younger are eligible for the VFC Program. For vaccines available through the VFC Program and provided to members age 18 years old and younger, the IHCP limits reimbursement to the fee for vaccine administration only. IHCP providers may bill the IHCP up to $8 for administering VFC vaccine to any IHCP-eligible child age 18 years old or younger. IHCP reimbursement for VFC vaccine administration is the lesser of the provider’s submitted charge for VFC vaccine administration or $8. To address the need for immunizations and deal with potential shortage of available influenza vaccines, the IHCP is not limiting reimbursement for any influenza vaccines, regardless of their availability from the VFC Program. This policy, effective October 1, 2008, allows providers to obtain reimbursement for privately purchased influenza vaccines for eligible VFC members when VFC vaccines are not available and supplies are delayed. For administering a free VFC vaccine, providers should bill the appropriate CPT procedure code but not charge more than the $8 VFC vaccine administration fee. Do not bill the separate administration CPT code. When administering a privately purchased influenza vaccine, providers may bill for the cost and administration of the vaccine. The IHCP-allowable reimbursement is based on 105 percent of the wholesale ascquisition cost (WAC) of the vaccine. Providers may separately bill an appropriate CPT administration code (96372, 96373, 96374) in addition to the CPT vaccine procedure code. If an evaluation and management (E/M) service code is billed with the same date of service as an officeadministered immunization, do not bill the vaccine administration code separately. Reimbursement for administration is included in the E/M code allowed amount. Separate reimbursement is allowed when the administration of the drug is the only service billed by the practitioner. In addition, if more than one injection is given on the same date of service and no E/M code is billed, providers may bill for an administration fee for each injection using 96372, 96373, or 96374, as appropriate. Remember – bill no more than the $8 VFC administration fee for free VFC influenza vaccine; or bill the usual and customary rate for the influenza vaccine CPT plus the appropriate administration CPT for provider-purchased influenza vaccine when the immunization is provided without the E/M service. Providers must continue to submit claims to the appropriate delivery system (HP or the member’s managed care organization) for each member, regardless of the source of the vaccine stock. Claims are eligible for postpayment review, and providers must maintain documentation and invoices related to private stock when substituting for VFC vaccine. Rates for rural health clinics (RHCs) and Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) include payment for the vaccine and administration fee. Table 8.123 lists the procedure codes for vaccines available through the VFC Program. Providers should direct questions about the Medicaid fee-for-service reimbursement for VFC vaccines to Customer Assistance at (317) 655-3240 in the Indianapolis local area or 1-800-577-1278. In addition, providers can refer to http://www.in.gov/isdh/17203.htm with questions regarding vaccine availability and general program information. For members enrolled in an MCO, the provider should contact the MCO for answers to questions about the VFC vaccine administration and reimbursement. 8-356 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Table 8.123 – Procedure Codes – VFC-Available Vaccines Procedure Code Description 90633 Hepatitis A Vaccine, Pediatric/adolescent dosage (2 dose schedule), for intramuscular use per 720 unit single dose vial (effective 7/17/2006) 90634 Hepatitis A Vaccine, Pediatric/adolescent dosage (3 dose schedule) for intramuscular use per 360 unit single dose vial (effective 7/17/2006) 90647 Hemophilus influenza b vaccine (Hib), PRP-OMP conjugate (3 dose schedule), for intramuscular use 90648 Hemophilus influenza b vaccine (Hib), PRR-T conjugate (4 dose schedule), for intramuscular use 90649 Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) Vaccine for members 9 to 18 years of age 90650 Human Papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine, types 16, 18, bivalent, 3 dose schedule, for intramuscular use 90655 Influenza virus vaccine, split virus, preservative free, for children 6-35 months dosage, for intramuscular use 90656 Influenza virus vaccine, split virus, preservative free, for individuals 3 years and above, for intramuscular use 90657 Influenza virus vaccine, split virus, for children 6-35 months of age, for intramuscular use 90658 Influenza virus vaccine, split virus, for use in individuals 3 years of age and above, for intramuscular use 90660 Influenza virus vaccine, live, for intranasal use for members 2 to 49 years of age 90669 Pneumoccocal conjugate vaccine, polyvalent, for children under 5 years, for intramuscular use NOTE: Removed from VFC program March 2010. 90670 Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine, 13 valent, for intramuscular use 90700 Diphtheria, tetanus toxoids, and acellular pertussis vaccine (DTaP), for use in individuals younger than 7 years, for intramuscular use 90702 Diphtheria and tetanus toxoids (DTP) absorbed for use in individuals younger than 7 years, for intramuscular use 90707 Measles, mumps, and rubella virus vaccine (MMR), live, for subcutaneous use 90713 Poliovirus vaccine, inactivated, (IPV), for subcutaneous or intramuscular use 90715 Tetanus, diphtheria toxoids and acellular pertussis vaccine(Tdap) for use in individuals 7 years or older, for intramuscular use (Boostrix and Adacel) 90716 Varicella virus vaccine, live, for subcutaneous use 90718 Tetanus and diphtheria toxoids (Td) absorbed for use in individuals 7 years old or older, for intramuscular use 90721 Diphtheria, tetanus toxoids, and acellular pertussis vaccine and Hemophilus influenza B vaccine (DtaP-Hib), for intramuscular use Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-357 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Procedure Code Description 90723 Diphtheria, tetanus toxoids, acellular pertussis vaccine, Hepatitis B, and poliovirus vaccine, inactivated (DtaP-HepB-IPV), for intramuscular use 90734 Meningococcal conjugate vaccine, Serogroups A, C, Y, 4-135, IM 90744 Hepatitis B vaccine, pediatric/adolescent dosage (three-dose schedule), for intramuscular use 90748 Hepatitis B and Hemophilus influenza b vaccine (HepB-Hib), for intramuscular use Reporting Individual Cases of Varicella (Chickenpox) As of December 12, 2008, all primary cases of varicella (chickenpox) are reportable to the local health department under 410 IAC 1-2.3-47. Healthcare providers should report all individual cases of chickenpox to the local health department within 72 hours for investigation by department staff. Cases of varicella should be reported to the local health department using the Report of Confidential Communicable Diseases Form available at http://www.in.gov/isdh/files/43823.pdf. The complete revised Communicable Disease Control Rule is available at http://www.in.gov/legislative/iac/T04100/A00010.PDF?\. VFC and HealthWatch If a HealthWatch provider chooses not to participate in the VFC Program, the provider must document the IHCP-enrolled patient’s immunization history. If a Care Select PMP chooses not to participate in the VFC Program, the PMP must have a procedure in place, such as a Memorandum of Collaboration (MOC), to ensure that children are adequately and appropriately immunized. Provider-Purchased Vaccine To address an initial shortage of available meningococcal vaccines under VFC, the IHCP does not limit reimbursement for MCV4 or Menactra vaccine, regardless of availability from the VFC program. This allows providers to obtain reimbursement for using privately purchased meningococcal vaccine if they cannot obtain VFC vaccine. When administering privately purchased meningococcal vaccine, providers may bill for the cost of the vaccine plus its administration, and the IHCP-allowable reimbursement includes payment for both. Note: If a provider administers a free VFC vaccine, the provider should bill the appropriate meningococcal vaccine procedure code but must not charge more than the $8 VFC vaccine administration fee and not bill the separate administration CPT code. Use CPT code 90734 – Meningococcal conjugate vaccine, serogroups A, C, Y and W-135 (tetravalent), for intramuscular use. One unit of 90734 equals 0.5ml of the vaccine. Administration Fee For vaccines that are part of the VFC program and are received free by the provider as part of VF C program, the provider may bill the appropriate CPT vaccine procedure code and the lesser of the usual and customary administration fee or $8. A separate CPT administration code should not be billed for a VFC-administered vaccine. 8-358 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions For vaccines that are typically part of the VFC program but have been purchased or supplied out of private stock, providers may bill for both the vaccine and its administration (using CPT code 96372, 96373, or 96374). However, if an evaluation and management (E/M) service code is billed with the same date of service as an office-administered immunization, providers should not bill the vaccine administration code separately. Reimbursement for the administration is included in the E/M codeallowed amount. Separate reimbursement is allowed only when the administration of the drug is the only service billed by the practitioner. For vaccines that are not part of the VFC program, providers may bill for both the vaccine and its administration (using CPT code 96372, 96373, or 96374). However, if an E/M service code is billed with the same date of service as an office-administered immunization, providers should not bill the vaccine administration code separately. Reimbursement for the administration is included in the E/M code-allowed amount. Separate reimbursement is allowed when the administration of the drug is the only service billed by the practitioner. In addition, if more than one vaccine is administered on the same date of service and no E/M code is billed, providers may bill an administration fee for each injection. The Indiana Medicaid maximum fee information may be found on the http://provider.indianamedicaid.com/ihcp/Publications/MaxFee/fee_schedule.asp Web site. Be aware of the member’s primary medical provider assignment, managed care delivery system assignment, and third-party liability resource(s). RHCs and FQHCs Note: RHC- and FQHC-specific encounter rates already include payment for immunizations. When providers submit RHC and FQHC claims to track encounters – claims that the IHCP denies – providers should bill no more than the $8 VFC administration fee for use of VFC influenza vaccine or bill the usual and customary rate for the influenza vaccine CPT plus the administration CPT 90782 for use of provider-purchased meningococcal vaccine. Third Party Liability For vaccines administered to VFC-eligible children, providers can bill directly to the appropriate delivery system (HP or the MCO) when the primary diagnosis is V20.2. Providers need not bill these vaccines to the primary insurance company prior to billing the IHCP. Providers should not experience TPL claim denials for children enrolled in Hoosier Healthwise Package C. If providers obtain information that identifies a primary insurance for children enrolled in Hoosier Healthwise Package C, they should contact the HP TPL Unit at (317) 488-5046 in the Indianapolis local area or 1-800-4574510. Package C The VFC Program is for uninsured children. Although the IHCP considers Hoosier Healthwise Package C an insurance program, the OMPP, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and the ISDH have worked together to open the VFC Program to children in all the Hoosier Healthwise benefit packages, including Hoosier Healthwise Package C. The Vaccine Accountability Tally Sheet contains an additional column for reporting vaccines administered to children enrolled in Hoosier Healthwise Package C. This allows for accurate tracking of the amount of vaccine used for children in each group. Providers must check the appropriate column on the Patient Eligibility Screening Record and the Vaccine Accountability Tally Sheet. Providers no Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-359 Chapter 8 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions longer need to submit the Vaccine Accountability Tally Sheet when ordering vaccines. Instead, providers should submit the form to the ISDH monthly, by the 10th of the month following the month in which the provider administered the vaccines. This change standardizes the reporting period for all providers. Providers who use the Children and Hoosiers Immunization Registry Program (CHIRP) immunization registry do not have to submit the Doses Administered Form (Vaccine Accountability Tally Sheet) to the ISDH. The ISDH generates Doses Administered Reports from CHIRP on the 10th of each month. Send forms to the following address: Indiana Immunization Program Indiana State Department of Health 2 North Meridian Street Indianapolis, IN 46204 The telephone numbers are as follows: (317) 233-7704 or 1-800-701-0704 Children and Hoosiers Immunization Registry Program The ISDH has a statewide, Internet-based immunization registry that contains immunization data for Children and Hoosiers Immunization Registry Program (CHIRP) members. Enrolled users can request View-Only Access to see whether a patient is present in the database and obtain that person’s data, or users can request Full-Access, which includes entry of immunization data into the database directly from an office or clinic, or through an export file from the healthcare provider’s billing vendor. Scientific Technologies Corporation (STC) is the vendor for ISDH development of CHIRP. The ISDH’s goal is to enroll other public facilities – such as community health centers, physicians in private practice, and hospitals, including emergency and clinics – and to expand to schools, Headstart centers, and childcare facilities. Physicians already enrolled as VFC providers were contacted by the ISDH to provide CHIRP information and enrollment packs for consideration. A 2003 change in state law allows for including patient immunization data in CHIRP without specific patient consent and affords provider liability protection for good-faith participation in CHIRP. Patients who choose not to participate can “opt out” by signing a form designed for that purpose. CHIRP has built-in algorithms to recommend the appropriate immunization schedule for each person. It maintains a vaccine inventory and reports vaccine usage. The system also provides reminder or recall capabilities to contact parents through printed mailing labels for postcards and letters. In addition, CHIRP can generate a variety of reports to help a healthcare provider assess the vaccine coverage rates for a practice. It also produces electronic reports for managed care plans and Health Plan Employer Data and Information Set (HEDIS) assessments. Continued development and implementation of CHIRP will ensure that a sustainable system exists to monitor the percent of children who are adequately immunized and to assist in the attainment of the national goal of 90 percent or more of 2-year-old children being appropriately immunized. Obtain more information about CHIRP from the CHIRP Web site at https://chirp.isdh.state.in.us or by calling the ISDH at 1-888-227-4439. 8-360 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions Medical Review Team Billing Procedures This section provides billing and claim processing guidelines for Medical Review Team (MRT) providers. MRT claims use IHCP claim processing billing procedures, although there may be minor differences, as follows: • Providers must submit MRT claims via a paper CMS-1500 claim form, Web interChange, or the 837P transaction within one year of the date of service. Providers must properly identify and itemize all services rendered. • Claims that providers submit on paper should be submitted on standard CMS-approved paper CMS-1500 claim forms. For information on purchasing CMS-1500 claim forms, refer to http://www.cms.hhs.gov/ElectronicBillingEDITrans/16_1500.asp. • All providers must be valid participants in the MRT program. • Providers should submit paper CMS-1500 claim forms to the following address: HP CMS-1500 Claims P.O. Box 7269 Indianapolis, IN 46207-7269 • Providers submitting claims via Web interChange must meet the technical requirements for Web interChange access, and have a valid Web interChange account and password. Providers should allow five business days to process each new Web account. Providers that currently have a Web interChange account and password do not need an additional account and password to submit claims for MRT. • New providers wanting to use the 837P transaction must complete, submit, and obtain prior approval of their vendor’s software, trading partner ID, logon ID, and password. Providers should allow one week to process vendor and account information. Providers may obtain instructions for account setup by obtaining a copy of the Companion Guide – 837 Professional Claims and Encounters Transaction from the IHCP Web site at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com. Note: Providers that are currently transmitting claims using the 837P transaction are not required to submit a second application. • Providers cannot submit MRT claims for payment with a claim for Medicaid or services for any other IHCP program. Providers must submit MRT claims with the unique MRT member identification number. • MRT claims are subject to all edits and audits not excluded by MRT program requirements. • Providers can bill for partial units of service. • MRT financial information is available in the electronic 835 RA transaction. • MRT claims processing information is reflected on the 276/277 Claim Status Request and Response Transactions. Providers can inquire on the claims status request and response using Web interChange. • At no time will an applicant bear financial responsibility for an MRT claim if the services were requested by the MRT or county caseworker. MRT claims are paid even if the disability application is denied.

Only the following codes will be authorized and billed for most trips: • T2003 SE – Nonemergency transportation, encounter, trip; $10 each way, regardless of vehicle type • T2007SE – Transportation waiting time, air ambulance and nonemergency vehicles, one-half hour increments; $4.50 • A0425 SE – Ground mileage, per statute mile; $1.25 Note: These codes are different from transportation codes used in the IHCP. For billing purposes, a trip is defined as the act of transporting a member from the initial point of pickup to the drop-off point at the final destination. Transportation providers are expected to transport the member along the shortest and most efficient route to and from the destination. MRT Procedure Codes The following tables provide information to help providers select the procedure code that best describes the services rendered. When providers have questions about procedure codes used for billing MRT services or the RBRVS/Maximum Fee Schedule, or when they require clarification about a specific code, they should follow the appropriate avenue of resolution listed in Chapter 1 of this manual. The complete fee schedule is available on the IHCP Web site at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com.

PASRR claims use normal claim processing billing procedures and payment logic, although there may be minor differences. For Provider Enrollment, new Diagnostic and Evaluation (D&E) Teams and CMHCs are only approved to conduct PASRR Level II assessments through contractual arrangements with the Division of Disability, Rehabilitative Services (DDRS), and the Division of Mental Health and Addiction (DMHA). The OMPP refers the names of new entities to the HP Provider Enrollment Unit for further enrollment processing. PASRR providers that are currently enrolled as IHCP providers do not need to re-enroll. The current IHCP provider ID number that has been assigned for Medicaid or other nonwaiver IHCP programs will be the provider’s PASRR provider ID number. If a current provider ID does not exist, the provider must enroll as a PASRR provider. To enroll as a PASRR provider and to obtain a valid provider ID to submit PASRR claims, providers should visit the IHCP Web site at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com to obtain and complete enrollment applications. Providers should submit completed applications to the following address: HP Provider Enrollment P.O. Box 7263 Indianapolis, IN 46207-7263 PASRR applicants or members may be dually eligible in the IHCP. When providers submit claims for PASRR, the provider must use the PASRR member ID that consists of 800 and the applicant’s Social Security number, or the applicant’s PASRR identification number (for example, 800999999999). At no time shall a member bear financial responsibility for a PASRR Level II assessment. 8-368 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 4: CMS-1500 and 837P Transaction Billing Instructions PASRR claims must be submitted via a paper CMS-1500 claim form, Web interChange, or the 837P transaction within one year of the date of service. The provider must properly identify and itemize all services rendered. Providers should submit paper claims on standard CMS-approved paper CMS-1500 claim forms to the following address: HP CMS-1500 Claims P.O. Box 7269 Indianapolis, IN 46207-7269 Providers submitting claims using the Web interChange must meet the technical requirements for Web interChange access, and have a valid Web interChange account and password. Providers should allow five business days to process each new Web account. Providers that currently have a Web interChange account and password do not need an additional account and password. New providers wanting to use the 837P transaction must complete, submit, and obtain prior approval of their vendor’s software, trading partner ID, logon ID, and password. Providers should allow one week to process vendor and account information. Providers may obtain instructions for account setup by obtaining a copy of the Companion Guide – 837 Professional Claims and Encounters Transaction on the IHCP Web site at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com. Providers who currently send claims using the 837P transaction are not required to make a second application. Providers must submit a claim for each service instance. Services cannot be combined with other nonPASRR service types, even if the services are rendered on the same day or same visit. For example, a claim for PASRR services cannot be combined with a claim for Medicaid services. PASRR claims are subject to all edits and audits not excluded by PASRR program requirements. If a claim encounters an edit or audit for missing or invalid information, the claim suspends or denies. Provider reimbursement for rendered services is determined by the procedure codes, modifiers, and associated maximum (max) fee rate. Procedure codes, modifiers, and max fee rates must accompany all PASRR claim submissions. Providers are responsible for entering billable charges per the published procedure code and max fee rate. Procedure codes and modifiers must accompany all claim submissions. IndianaAIM will capture as many as four modifiers for all PASRR claims with MI or MR segments. If the procedure code or applicable modifier is missing or invalid, edits will deny or suspend claims. Providers may void or replace PASRR claims. PASRR financial information is available on the 835 RA transaction. PASRR claims processing information is reflected on the 276/277 Claim Status Request Response Transactions. Providers can inquire on the claims status request and response using Web interChange. Table 8.125 lists the procedure codes and modifiers for PASRR.

The 837 Health Care Claim: Dental Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) transaction is the HIPAA-compliant electronic dental transaction. This section refers to this transaction as the 837 Dental or 837D transaction. HP does not supply dental claim forms, and they are not available on the IHCP Web site. Providers can obtain dental claim forms from several sources, including the American Dental Association at 1-800-947-4746. The IHCP returns claims submitted on any other claim form to the provider. Providers Using the Dental Claim Form The following types of providers use the Dental Claim Form or the 837D transaction to bill services to the IHCP: • Endodontists • General dentistry providers • Orthodontists • Oral surgeons • Pediatric dentists • Periodontists • Prosthodontists ADA 2006 Paper Claim Form Changes and Requirements This section provides a brief overview of the requirements for completion of the ADA 2006 claim form. The ADA 2006 claim form replaced the ADA 1999, Version 2000 claim form on March 1, 2008. The instructions outlined in this manual are effective for the new ADA 2006 paper claim submissions starting April 15, 2007. All ADA 2006 paper claims received on and after March 1, 2008, must meet the new ADA 2006 claim form requirements. Noncompliant paper claims submitted for processing are returned to the provider. During the transition period of April 1, 2007, to March 1, 2008, the IHCP accepted the old and the new claim forms. As of March 1, 2008, providers are required to report their National Provider Identifier (NPI) to the IHCP and may include their IHCP Legacy Provider Identifier (LPI) on the paper claim form. After March 1, 2008, only the NPI is required to process claims. For more instructions about NPI requirements, see the National Provider Identifier and One-to-One Match section. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-371 Chapter 8 Section 5: Dental Claim Form Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Rendering NPI Required All dental group providers must use their rendering and billing provider NPIs on the new ADA 2006 dental claim form. To expedite claims, providers should follow the claim form completion guidelines as listed in Table 8.126 when submitting claims. Date of Service Definition All claims must reflect a date of service. The date of service is the date the specific services were actually supplied, dispensed, or rendered to the patient. For example, when rendering services for space maintainers or dentures, the date of service must reflect the date the appliance or denture is delivered to the patient. This requirement is applicable to all IHCP-covered services. ADA 2006 Dental Claim Form Fields This section includes instructions for completing the dental claim form. Table 8.126 describes each field of the ADA 2006 Dental Claim Form. The field chart uses bold to indicate fields that are required or required, if applicable. The instructions describe each field, or data element, by referring to the number found in the left corner of each box on the dental claim form. Several fields are not numbered. These fields are listed as unlabeled. The narrative sequence moves from left to right, top to bottom, across the claim form. Note: Each claim form must have all required fields completed, including a total dollar amount. Providers can list only one procedure code per service line. If the number of service lines exceeds the number of service lines allowed on the form, providers must complete an additional claim form. All dental providers are required to include dental rendering provider NPI. This requirement is for claims received on or after April 15, 2007. This requirement includes submission of noncheck- and check-related adjustments submitted by paper or replacements that are performed on Web interChange. If the claim or adjustment submitted does not include the appropriate rendering provider NPI, the claim will be denied. In the event that your claim or adjustment request was denied, your claim or adjustment request must be resubmitted with the necessary corrections. In the event that a mass adjustment (claims that begin with region 56) is initiated by HP for erroneously denied claims and the claim was originally paid based on a date of receipt prior to April 15, 2007, and the claim suspends for a rendering NPI edit, the claim will be forced. If the mass adjustment is processed and the original date of receipt is after April 15, 2007, the claim will be denied appropriately. Providers who have administrator access in Web interChange can view their provider profiles to access a list of the rendering providers linked to the group. Providers can contact the Provider Enrollment Helpline at 1-877-707-5750 to discuss any updates that need to be made to the provider group information. Description of Fields on the ADA 2006 Dental Claim Form This section explains completion of the ADA 2006 claim form. Some information is required to complete the claim form, while other information is optional. All dental providers must use their rendering and group NPI numbers. When two or more dentists are rendering services for a member, the providers must use separate claims to expedite claims processing. Providers should follow the guidelines in Table 8.126 when submitting claims. 8-372 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 5: Dental Claim Form Billing Instructions The ADA 2006 Claim Form Field Descriptions table uses bold type to indicate if a field is Required or Required, if applicable.

These standards are published in the 837D Implementation Guides (IGs). An addendum to most IGs has been published and must be used to properly implement each transaction. The IGs are available for download through the Washington Publishing Company Web site at http://wpc-edi.com. Companion Guides The IHCP has developed technical companion guides to assist application developers during the implementation process. Information contained in the IHCP Companion Guides is intended only to supplement the adopted IGs, and provide guidance and clarification as it applies to the IHCP. The Companion Guides are never intended to modify, contradict, or reinterpret the rules established by the 8-376 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 5: Dental Claim Form Billing Instructions IGs. The Companion Guides are located on the IHCP Web site at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com in the EDI Solutions section. Some data elements that providers submit may not be used in processing the 837I or 837P transaction; however, those data elements may be returned in other transactions, such as the 277 Claim Status Request and Response or the 835 Remittance Advice transactions. These data elements are necessary for processing, and failure to add these data elements may result in claim suspension or claim denial. Billing Procedures Current Dental Terminology Procedure Codes The IHCP end-dated in IndianaAIM all IHCP dental codes not listed as Current Dental Terminology (CDT) procedure codes. As updates to the CDT occur, the IHCP notifies providers of the changes through the Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) updates in IHCP provider bulletins, newsletters, and banner page articles. Dental Extractions The following billing requirements and reimbursement policies apply to tooth extractions. The IHCP allows only one tooth number per service line for dental extractions. A provider submitting a claim for D7140 – Extraction, erupted tooth or exposed root (elevation and/or forceps removal) must indicate the tooth number for each tooth extracted on a separate service line in field 27 on the ADA 2006 Dental Claim Form. The IHCP pays 100 percent of the maximum allowed amount or the billed amount, whichever is less, for the initial extraction. This dental service is not applied toward the IHCP member’s $600 Dental Cap services. For multiple extractions within the same quadrant on the same date of service, the IHCP pays 90 percent of the maximum allowed amount for procedure code D7140 or the billed amount, whichever is less. Package E Billing With the assistance of the Dental Advisory Panel (DAP), the IHCP created a table of the CDT codes that are allowed for reimbursement of emergency services provided to Package E members. These codes are shown in Table 8.127. The listing of a code in Table 8.127 does not eliminate the need for providers to document the emergency medical condition that required treatment. The Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990 (OBRA) defines an emergency medical condition as follows: A medical condition of sufficient severity (including severe pain) that the absence of medical attention could result in placing the member’s health in serious jeopardy, serious impairment of bodily functions, or serious dysfunction of an organ or part. Radiographs must be billed only when the member presents with symptoms that warrant the diagnostic service.

Providers must use the attachment transmission code BM (by mail) Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-379 Chapter 8 Section 5: Dental Claim Form Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual – when submitting all attachments for electronic claims. Providers must submit all attachments at the same time. Each time a claim that has attachments is submitted electronically, the ACN must be a unique number. Providers must mail the attachment and cover sheet to the IHCP at the following address: HP P.O. Box 7259 Indianapolis, IN 46207 If HP does not receive an attachment within 45 days of claim submission, the IHCP automatically denies the claim. If HP receives an incorrect attachment, the IHCP automatically denies the claim. Attachment Control Number Attachments must contain an ACN. This code identifies each attachment. The ACN allows the IHCP to match the attachment to the submitted claim and must be written at the top of each page of the attachment. The provider must create the ACN, which can be numbers, letters, or a combination of letters and numbers. ACNs can be up to 30 characters in length. The numbers must be unique to each attachment for each claim. The provider must indicate the number of pages on the Claims Attachment Cover Sheet (not including the cover sheet) and on each page of a multiple-page document. The Claims Attachment Cover Sheet is available on the Forms page of the IHCP Web site at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com/general-provider-services/forms.aspx. Report Type Code For processing, providers must also use the Report Type Code indicating the type of attachment that they are sending. Report Type Codes are as follows: • B4 – Referral Form – Used by Surveillance and Utilization Review (SUR) for the Right Choices Program • DA – Dental Models – Used by SUR and submitted only upon request • DG – Diagnostic Report – Used by prior authorization (PA) and SUR • EB – Explanation of Benefits – Used by Third Party Liability (TPL), Resolutions, and SUR • OB – Operative Note – Used by PA, Resolutions, Medical Policy, and SUR • P6 – Periodontal Charts – Used for specific periodontal procedures • RR – Radiology Reports – Used by PA, Medical Policy, and SUR • RB – Radiology Films – Used by PA and SUR • OZ – Support Data for Claim – The following are uses for progress notes: - Invoices (Manual Pricing) - Durable Medical Equipment delivery tickets - Transportation run tickets - Sterilization/Hysterectomy consent forms - Spend-down Form 8A - Past filing limit documentation - PA request/response copies - Environmental modification service requests - Consultation reports 8-380 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 5: Dental Claim Form Billing Instructions Return to Provider Letter Providers receive a return to provider (RTP) letter when the number of attachments behind the attachment cover letter does not match the number the provider listed on the Claims Attachment Cover Sheet. HP matches the attachments received with the parent claim electronically. When providers correctly submit attachments with all numbers matching, Claim Support, Resolutions, and the appropriate MCO or CMO processes the claim. When an ACN that is not unique is submitted on a claim, an error message prompts the provider to change the ACN; the claim cannot be submitted without a unique ACN. Paper Claims with Attachments HIPAA implementation did not change the process for paper claim attachments. Providers should continue to follow current procedures for submitting paper claims with attachments as outlined in Chapter 10 of this manual. Managed Care Considerations Hoosier Healthwise risk-based managed care (RBMC) is the delivery system for the mandatory managed care program for parents and children who receive Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and for children and pregnant women at or just above the federal poverty limit. Care Select enrolls most aged, blind, and disabled Medicaid enrollees. Care Select excludes enrollees with a nursing facility or waiver Level of Care, or those who have spend-down. The IHCP pays dental claims for Hoosier Healthwise and Care Select members the same way it pays traditional IHCP fee-for-service (FFS) claims. Providers must submit dental claims to HP for payment. Providers do not need primary medical provider (PMP) authorization or program authorization for members to access dental services, except for dental surgery provided in an inpatient, outpatient, or ambulatory surgical center (ASC) setting. Note: For RBMC members, contact the appropriate MCO for instructions regarding surgery. MCO contact information can be found in Chapter 1. Care Select Dental claims using the CDT codes for services provided to Care Select members do not require certification from the PMP. However, for services rendered in an inpatient, outpatient, or ASC setting to a Care Select member, the provider must have the services authorized by the PMP; the anesthesiologist’s services also must be authorized by the PMP. For claims billed on the CMS-1500 or UB-04 claim form for Care Select members, providers must have the claim authorized by the PMP to be reimbursed. Providers can submit these claims to HP for payment. Risk-Based Managed Care In RBMC, the State contracts with managed care organizations (MCOs) to provide covered services, including dental services provided in an inpatient, outpatient, or ASC setting to enrolled IHCP members. The MCOs prefer prenotification by dentists using other service providers for delivery of dental services. The IHCP carves out dental provider services billed on a dental claim form from RBMC and MCO services. Providers must submit dental claims incurred by RBMC members to HP for adjudication. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-381 Chapter 8 Section 5: Dental Claim Form Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual When providers perform dental services in an inpatient, outpatient, or ASC setting, they bill their services with the Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes on a CMS-1500 claim form. The IHCP does not carve out ancillary services, such as anesthesia, and providers must bill these services to the MCO. Services Associated with Dental Services for Hoosier Healthwise RBMC Networks For dental services that providers submit with CDT codes included in the IHCP Dental Fee Schedule and bill on a dental claim form (paper or electronically), the IHCP carves out these services from Hoosier Healthwise RBMC managed care. Providers must submit claims for these services to HP. Providers can find a copy of the Dental Fee Schedule on the IHCP Web site at http://provider.indianamedicaid.com. Information on how to obtain a paper copy of the fee schedule is presented in the Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System Codes section. Dental services, which are performed by the following dental specialists and billed on the ADA 2006 or the 837 Health Care Claim: Dental (837D) electronic transaction, are carved out or excluded from the responsibility of Hoosier Healthwise RBMC: • Endodontists • General Dentistry Practitioners • Oral Surgeons • Orthodontists • Pediatric Dentists • Periodontists • Mobile Dentists • Prosthodontists • Dental Clinics All dental services billed using CDT procedure codes must be submitted to HP using the ADA 2006 claim form or the 837D transaction. Prior to dental services being provided in an inpatient or outpatient hospital setting or an ASC for an RBMC member, the dental providers must first contact the member’s MCO before rendering services to determine whether PA is required. When the provider obtains MCO authorization and provides services, the services must then be billed as follows: • Dental-related facility charges must be billed on a UB-04 claim form. • Dental services provided in an inpatient, outpatient, or ASC setting can be billed with CDT codes on a dental claim form. These services are carved out of RBMC, and must be billed to HP using the ADA 2006 claim form or the 837D transaction. • All other associated professional services, such as oral surgery, radiology, and anesthesia, as well as ancillary services related to the dental services, must be billed to the MCO on the CMS-1500 claim form or the 837P transaction, along with appropriate authorization information. Note: If a member is enrolled in Care Select, the PMP must authorize services rendered in an inpatient, outpatient, or ASC setting for providers to receive reimbursement. The MCOs and CMOs are responsible for determining which services require PA for their members. The MCOs’ and CMOs’ decisions to authorize, modify, or deny a given request are based on medical 8-382 Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual Chapter 8 Section 5: Dental Claim Form Billing Instructions necessity, reasonableness, and other criteria. A provider must make requests for reviews and appeals by contacting the appropriate MCO and CMO. Member Eligibility Verification and Billing for Dental Services As in the traditional FFS IHCP, providers must verify eligibility at the time a member makes an appointment and again prior to rendering the service on the day the appointment is scheduled. Providers can verify eligibility through the Automated Voice Response (AVR) system, Omni swipe card device (Omni), and the Web interChange. These methods are the same whether the member is in Hoosier Healthwise, Care Select, or the Traditional Medicaid network. Dental Cap The IHCP places a $600 cap on dental services per calendar year, per member, for members 21 years of age and older. This includes members who reach 21 years of age during the year and new members who are 21 years of age or older on the date the member is eligible for dental services. The $600 cap includes services provided on or after the date a member reaches 21 years old. Dental services provided in a hospital do not apply to the cap. If the provider does not indicate the place of service on the claim form, the IHCP assumes the service was delivered in a dental office. If services were rendered in a hospital, providers should indicate a hospital place of service in field 38 of the ADA 2006 claim form. Table 8.128 identifies codes for services included in the $600 dental cap when provided in a dentist’s office.

The dental cap excludes dental services for root planing and scaling, intravenous sedation provided in conjunction with oral surgery, and osseous surgery. Providers can bill the usual and customary charge to the member for any services provided after the member has exhausted the cap. However, if the IHCP partially pays for a service because of the cap limit, the provider can bill the member only for the difference between what the IHCP would have reimbursed to the provider and what the IHCP actually paid. The situation must meet the following guidelines for an IHCP provider to hold a member responsible for payment: • The service rendered must be determined to be noncovered by the IHCP. Library Reference Number: PRPR10004 Revision Date: August 26, 2010 Version: 10.0 8-385 Chapter 8 Section 5: Dental Claim Form Billing Instructions Indiana Health Coverage Programs Provider Manual • The member has exceeded the program limitations for a particular service. • The member must understand before receiving the service that the IHCP does not cover the service and that the member is responsible for the charges associated with the service. • The provider must maintain documentation that the member voluntarily chose to receive the service knowing that the IHCP does not cover the service. In summary, a provider can bill a member only when the above criteria are fully met. A consent form is not acceptable unless it identifies the specific procedure being performed, and the member signs the consent before receiving the service. If the consent form uses written statements, the statement must not contain language such as, “If an IHCP service is not covered...” Note: The IHCP does not require a written statement. However, before providers can bill members, providers must demonstrate that they informed the members that the IHCP does not cover the service and the member voluntarily chose to receive the service knowing the IHCP would not cover it. Providers must verify m
