Attention: All Providers and NCTracks Providers

Getting your NCTracks Questions Answered

On July 1, NCTracks replaced the legacy Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) system for processing Medicaid claims. The new NCTracks system consolidates several claims processing platforms into a single solution for multiple divisions within the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). These divisions are the Division of Medical Assistance (DMA), the Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities and Substance Abuse Services (DMH/DD/SAS), the Division of Public Health (DPH), and the Office of Rural Health and Community Care (ORHCC).

CSC is the state contractor for NCTracks and will be assuming many of the telephone numbers and post office boxes previously used by legacy vendors. The following list outlines how best to contact CSC for various topic areas after July 1.

Attention:  All Providers and N.C. Health Choice Providers

NCTracks Provider Claims and Billing Assistance Seminars

The new NCTracks portal is here. Providers now have greater visibility with quick and easy access to:

  • View claims status in real time
  • Update/edit provider records
  • Request/confirm prior approval
  • Retrieve historical remittance advices for up to seven years
  • Verify recipient eligibility

CSC wants to ensure all providers have an understanding of how the provider enrollment and claims process works within the new NCTracks. NCTracks Provider Claims and Billing Assistance Seminars will be held in six locations across North Carolina from July 16 through August 1, 2013. The seminars will address frequently asked questions and concerns such as:

Enrollment

  • What is an NCID and how do providers obtain an NCID?
  • Will Currently Enrolled Providers (CEPs) be required to complete a new or additional enrollment application?
  • How will providers be notified once they are enrolled?

Community Care of N.C./Carolina Access (CCNC/CA)

  • How should claims be filed when a Primary Care Provider (PCP) refers a Carolina ACCESS enrollee to a provider’s office?
  • How can a provider tell if a patient is enrolled with Carolina ACCESS?
  • Can referrals be made by telephone and online?

Prior Approval (PA)

  • What services require prior approval?
  • How will providers know if additional information is required for a prior approval request?
  • How do providers check the status of the PA requests they submitted to other vendors, such as MedSolutions?
  • What is the turnaround time for PA requests?

Claims, Adjustments and Overrides

  • How do providers resolve denied claims?
  • Can providers check claim payment status online?
  • How do providers submit an adjustment request?
  • How do providers submit a time limit, third party, or Medicare override?
  • What if the patient has a Third Party Insurance?
  • Who do providers contact for additional questions or information?

The NCTracks Provider Claims and Billing Assistance Guide will be the primary document referenced during the seminar.  Copies will not be provided at the seminars.  Providers are encouraged to print the NCTracks Provider Claims and Billing Assistance Guide, which will be posted in SkillPort and on the DMA seminar web page prior to the first scheduled session.  Pre-registration is required and seating is limited. Unregistered providers are welcome to attend, if space is available. 

The seminar will begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at 4:00 pm.  Providers are encouraged to arrive by 8:45 a.m. to complete registration.  Lunch will not be provided; however, there will be a lunch break.   Because meeting room temperatures vary, dressing in layers is advised.

Providers can use SkillPort to register for the seminars by navigating to the NCTracks webportal at www.nctracks.nc.gov.

An NCID is required to register for training in SkillPort.  Those who already have an NCID can use it to register.  To obtain an NCID, go to the NCID website at https://ncid.nc.gov .

Attention: Pharmacists and Prescribers

Billing for 340B drugs in NCTracks for the Outpatient (Retail) Pharmacy Program

When a 340B drug is dispensed, the pharmacy provider will enter a value of “08” in the Basis of Cost Determination field (423-DN) to identify the 340B claim and a value of “20” in the Submission Clarification Code field (420-DK) to denote the 340B provider. For 340B drugs, pharmacy providers are required to submit their acquisition cost in the Usual and Customary charge field (426-DQ) without the dispensing fee. NCTracks will apply the appropriate dispensing fee when determining the reimbursement amount for the claim. Providers can reference the NCPDP D.0 Companion Guide.

Attention: All Providers

NC Medicaid EHR Incentive Program – July 2013 Update

Change in NC-MIPS Help Desk

The N.C. Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program Help Desk has recently moved. Providers are reminded to use the phone number, email, and mailing addresses listed below for all correspondence with the N.C. Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, including program and attestation inquiries, sending in signed attestations and supporting documentation.

Email:                        NCMedicaid.HIT@dhhs.nc.gov

Phone Number:         919-814-0180

Mailing Address:       NC Medicaid EHR Incentive Program
                                 2501 Mail Service Center
                                 Raleigh, NC 27699-2501

* Note: Effective June 1, 2013, the N.C. Medicaid EHR Incentive Program no longer receives documentation via fax.

Payment Update

As of June 1, 2013, the N.C. Medicaid EHR Incentive Program has paid 2,881 unique eligible professionals (EH) and 71 unique eligible hospitals (EH) a total of $125 million. The N.C. Medicaid EHR Incentive program thanks its partners and the provider community for its continued support and participation.

e-CQMs Reported to the State in 2014

Per the Stage 2 Final Rule issued by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) all participants in the N.C. Medicaid EHR Incentive Program who attest to Stage 2 Meaningful Use (MU) will need to submit their Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs) electronically to the state. The N.C. Health Information Exchange (NC HIE) has been designated as the vehicle for the state to receive the electronic submission of CQMs.

With support from CMS, N.C. Medicaid will subsidize the HIE cost of connecting those providers who agree to become participants on the NC HIE. More information will be forthcoming. In the meantime, all questions should be directed to the NC HIE Project Manager, Chris Scarboro by phone at 919-745-2379 or by email at cscarboro@n3cn.org.

Attention: All Providers

NC Medicaid EHR Incentive Payments will be Delayed in July

Due to the launch of NCTracks on July 1, the N.C. Medicaid EHR Incentive Program will not make any incentive payments to eligible professionals (EPs) or eligible hospitals (EHs) from June 27, 2013 until July 31, 2013. After July 31, 2013, the N.C. Medicaid EHR Incentive Program payments will be issued by electronic funds transfer (EFT) via NCTracks.

While payment delays can be expected, EPs and EHs will still be able to submit Program Year 2013 attestations during this time period, and their payment will be processed per the federal guidelines issued by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

Attention:  All Providers

Hysterectomy Statement Form Requirements

The N.C. Division of Medical Assistance (DMA) revised the Hysterectomy Statement Form guidelines to ease the transition of DMA claims and statement processing from HP to NCTracks.

Effective Aug. 1, 2013, DMA will require the following:

  1. Providers must place the entire Hysterectomy Statement Form on their letterhead so that all three statements are included on the form when submitting a statement for hysterectomies. 
  1. Providers must add a title of “Hysterectomy Statement” above the form area before the actual statement information begins.
  1. Providers must add their National Provider Identifier (NPI) across from the RID (Recipient Identification Number - previously known as the MID or Medicaid Identification Number) for proper Hysterectomy Statement Form and claim matching.  Hysterectomy Statement Forms filed without an NPI cannot be matched to the correct claim.

  2.  Providers must complete only the hysterectomy statement area on the form that is applicable to their situation. The other two form areas can be left blank or can be completed with “N/A” for “Not applicable.”

The revised Hysterectomy Policy will be posted on August 1, 2013. A copy of the revised Hysterectomy Statement Form – which can be copied directly onto provider professional letterhead – will be located at DMA’s Website at www.ncdhhs.gov/dma/provider/forms.htm once the policy is posted. 

Providers will begin receiving denials for using the incorrect form on November 1, 2013 for Hysterectomy Statement Forms signed on or after August 1, 2013. The old form will be denied as not correctable after that date.  If corrections are needed to the new form, providers should follow the instructions in Section 5.3 of the Hysterectomy Policy, which can be found at www.ncdhhs.gov/dma/mp/1E1.pdf.

Attention:  All Providers

Sterilization Consent Form Requirements

The N.C. Division of Medical Assistance (DMA) has revised the requirements of the Sterilization Consent Form guidelines to coincide with the DMA’s newly revised Sterilization Policy (1E-3). As of July 1, 2013, DMA will require the following:

  1. A printed name is acceptable as a signature in all areas requiring signatures on the Sterilization Consent form for a sterilization procedure. This includes the areas of the Beneficiary Signature, Interpreter’s Signature, Witness Signature, and Physician’s Signature.

  2. The provider obtaining consent must retain the original completed sterilization consent form in the beneficiary’s health records. A copy of this consent form must be provided to the beneficiary. Copies should also be provided to the physician/provider conducting the procedure, the interpreter (if one is being used), and any other state agency or program requiring this documentation in addition to the copy sent to the fiscal agent. A copy should be retained at the service site where the consent is being obtained.

  3. Use of a Signature stamp in lieu of signature is not acceptable for the Interpreter’s signature,the witness signature, or the physician’s signature.

  4. Use of initials and/or abbreviations is not acceptable for the first name of the recipient, interpreter, witness, or physician.

  5. Under the Interpreter’s Statement in the Sterilization Policy, the wording of the attestation must be taken directly from the sterilization consent form.

  6. If a provider receives a denial of the consent form from DMA’s fiscal agent because an error was located in an area that can be changed, providers must strikethrough the error once on the original consent, make the correction, and send a copy to the fiscal agent/ The use of white out or erasures are prohibited.

  7. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has revised the Sterilization Consent Form. Providers must use the consent form document located in the policy. Consents dated October 1, 2013 and thereafter must be documented using the Sterilization Consent Form located in the policy.  Consents signed on or after October 1, 2013 using the old form will be denied with an EOB that states “The consent form submitted is invalid. It is not the federally mandated form. Refer to DMA Clinical Coverage Policy 1E-3. This is not correctable.”

  8. The new Sterilization Consent Form has an area documented as “RID” for “Recipient Identification Number.” This is formally known as the “MID” for “Medicaid Identification Number.” Document this area appropriately.

  9. National Provider Identifier (NPI) is now required on each Sterilization Consent form. This area is to be completed by the billing provider (surgeon) of the sterilization procedure. Other providers can bill using the consent form on file from the billing provider (surgeon). When the NPI on the claim does not match the NPI on the consent, the claim pends in order to determine if ancillary service is appropriate for the consent procedure.

  10. The Sterilization Consent form can be partially completed (with the exception of areas needing a signature and date) on the Sterilization Consent Form located at this web page:  www.ncdhhs.gov/dma/provider/forms.htm. The form can also be printed directly from the website for additional copies of the form. DMA’s fiscal agent will no longer be responsible for sending providers additional copies of the form.

DMA’s revisions to The Sterilization Policy are effective immediately. The Sterilization Policy can be found at website at www.ncdhhs.gov/dma/mp/1E3.pdf.

Payment Error Rate Measurement (PERM) in North Carolina

The last in a series of 2013 Payment Error Rate Measurement (PERM) Provider Education webinar/conference calls will be on Tuesday, July 2, 2013, 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. EST.

The webinar, titled “Provider Education Calls,” will allow participants to learn more about the PERM process and provider responsibility. It can be accessed at the following website www.cms.gov/Research-Statistics-Data-and-Systems/Monitoring-Programs/PERM/Provider_Education_Calls.html.

PERM is an audit program that was developed and implemented by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to comply with the Improper Payments Information Act (IPIA) of 2002. PERM examines eligibility determinations and claims payment made to Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Programs (CHIP) for accuracy, and to ensure states only pay for appropriate claims. In North Carolina, CHIP is called N.C. Health Choice (NCHC). North Carolina’s next PERM cycle is federal fiscal year 2013 (October 1, 2012 – September 30, 2013).

A+ Government Solutions is the Review Contractor for the federal fiscal year 2013 PERM cycle and began requesting documentation from selected providers as of June 2013.

Throughout the cycle, A+ Government Solutions will be responsible for: collecting Medicaid and NCHC policies; conducting data processing reviews; requesting medical records from providers; conducting medical reviews; and, hosting the State Medicaid Error Rate Findings (SMERF) website. States can use the website to track medical records requests, view review findings, request different resolutions or appeals on identified errors, and more.
