Managed Care Prepaid Health Plan Billing and Payment under the Oregon Health Plan

The Division of Medical Assistance Programs (Division) may have specific definitions for common terms. Please use OAR 410-141-0000, Definitions, in conjunction with this rule.

(1) Providers must submit all billings for Oregon Health Plan (OHP) clients to Prepaid Health Plans (PHPs) and to the Division within four (4) months and twelve (12) months, respectively, of the date of service, subject to other applicable Division billing rules. Providers must submit billings to PHPs within the four (4) month time frame except in the following cases:

(a) Pregnancy;

(b) Eligibility issues such as retroactive deletions or retroactive enrollments;

(c) Medicare is the primary payer;

(d) Other cases that could have delayed the initial billing to the PHP (which does not include failure of provider to certify the Division member’s (see definition) eligibility); or

(e) Third Party Liability (TPL). Pursuant to 42 CFR 36.61, subpart G: Indian Health Services and the amended Public Law 93-638 under the Memorandum of Agreement that Indian Health Service and 638 Tribal Facilities are the payer of last resort and is not considered an alternative liability or TPL.

(2) Providers must be enrolled with the Division to be eligible for Division fee-for-service (FFS) payments. Mental health providers, except Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC), must be approved by the Local Mental Health Authority (LMHA) and the Addictions and Mental Health (AMH) Division before enrollment with the Division or to be eligible for PHP payment for services. Providers may be retroactively enrolled, in accordance with OAR 410-120-1260, Provider Enrollment.

(3) Providers, including mental health providers (see definition), must be enrolled with the Division either as a Medicaid provider or an encounter-only provider prior to submission of encounter data to ensure the servicing provider is not excluded per federal and State standard as defined in OAR 407-120-0300.

(4) Providers shall verify, before rendering services, which Division member is eligible for the Medical Assistance Program on the date of service using the Division tools and optionally the PHP’s tools, as applicable and that the service to be rendered is covered under the Oregon Health Plan Benefit Package of covered services. Providers shall also identify the party responsible for covering the intended service and seek pre-authorizations from the appropriate payer before rendering services. Providers shall inform Division members of any charges for non-covered services (see definition) prior to the services being delivered.

(5) Capitated services:

(a) PHPs receive a capitation payment to provide services to Division members. These services are referred to as capitated services;

(b) PHPs are responsible for payment of all capitated services. Such services should be billed directly to the PHP, unless the PHP or the Division specifies otherwise. PHPs may require providers to obtain preauthorization to deliver certain capitated services.

(6) Payment by the PHP to participating providers for capitated services is a matter between the PHP and the participating provider, except as follows:

(a) Pre-authorizations:

(A) PHPs shall have written procedures for processing pre-authorization requests received from any provider. The procedures shall specify time frames for:

(i) Date stamping pre-authorization requests when received;

(ii) Determining within a specific number of days from receipt whether a pre-authorization request is valid or non-valid;

(iii) The specific number of days allowed for follow up on pended preauthorization requests to obtain additional information;

(iv)The specific number of days following receipt of the additional information that a redetermination must be made;

(v) Providing services after office hours and on weekends that require preauthorization;

(vi) Sending notice of the decision with appeal rights to the Division member when the determination is made to deny the requested service as specified in 410-141-0263.

(B) PHPs shall make a determination on at least 95% of valid preauthorization requests, within two working days of receipt of a preauthorization or reauthorization request related to urgent services; alcohol and drug services; and/or care required while in a skilled nursing facility. Preauthorization for prescription drugs must be completed and the pharmacy notified within 24 hours. If a preauthorization for a prescription cannot be completed within the 24 hours, the PHP must provide for the dispensing of at least a 72-hour supply if the medical need for the drug is immediate. PHP shall notify providers of such determination within 2 working days of receipt of the request;

(C) For expedited prior authorization requests in which the provider indicates, or the PHP determines, that following the standard timeframe could seriously jeopardize the Division member’s life or health or ability to attain, maintain, or regain maximum function:

(i) The PHP must make an expedited authorization decision and provide notice as expeditiously as the Division member’s health condition requires and no later than three working days after receipt of the request for service;

(ii) The PHP may extend the three working days time period by up to 14 calendar days if the Division member requests an extension, or if the PHP justifies to Division a need for additional information and how the extension is in the Division member’s interest.

(D) For all other preauthorization requests, PHPs shall notify providers of an approval, a denial or a need for further information within 14 calendar days of receipt of the request. PHPs must make reasonable efforts to obtain the necessary information during that 14-day period. However, the PHP may use an additional 14 days to obtain follow-up information, if the PHP justifies (to the Division upon request) the need for additional information and how the delay is in the interest of the Division member. The PHP shall make a determination as the Division member’s health condition requires, but no later than the expiration of the extension.

(b) Claims payment:

(A) PHPs shall have written procedures for processing claims submitted for payment from any source. The procedures shall specify time frames for:

(i) Date stamping claims when received;

(ii) Determining within a specific number of days from receipt whether a claim is valid or non-valid;

(iii) The specific number of days allowed for follow up of pended claims to obtain additional information;

(iv) The specific number of days following receipt of additional information that a determination must be made; and

(v) Sending notice of the decision with appeal rights to the Division member when the determination is made to deny the claim.

(B) PHPs shall pay or deny at least 90% of valid claims within 45 calendar days of receipt and at least 99% of valid claims within 60 calendars days of receipt. PHPs shall make an initial determination on 99% of all claims submitted within 60 calendar days of receipt;

(C) PHPs shall provide written notification of PHP determinations when such determinations result in a denial of payment for services, for which the Division member may be financially responsible. Such notice shall be provided to the Division member and the treating provider within 14 calendar days of the final determination. The notice to the Division member shall be a Division or AMH approved notice format and shall include information on the PHPs internal appeals process, and the Notice of Hearing Rights (DMAP 3030) shall be attached. The notice to the provider shall include the reason for the denial;

(D) PHPs shall not require providers to delay billing to the PHP;

(E) PHPs shall not require Medicare be billed as the primary insurer for services or items not covered by Medicare, nor require non-Medicare approved providers to bill Medicare;

(F) PHPs shall not deny payment of valid claims when the potential TPR is based only on a diagnosis, and no potential TPR has been documented in the Division member’s clinical record;

(G) PHPs shall not delay nor deny payments because a co-payment was not collected at the time of service.

(c) FCHPs, PCOs, and MHOs are responsible for payment of Medicare coinsurances and deductibles up to the Medicare or PHP’s allowable for covered services the Division member receives within the PHP, for authorized referral care, and for urgent care services or emergency services the Division member receives from non-participating providers (see definition). FCHPs, PCOs, and MHOs are not responsible for Medicare coinsurances and deductibles for non-urgent or non-emergent care Division members receive from non-participating providers;

(d) FCHPs and PCOs shall pay transportation, meals and lodging costs for the Division member and any required attendant for out-of-state services (as defined in General Rules, chapter 410, division 120) that the FCHP and PCO has arranged and authorized when those services are available within the state, unless otherwise approved by the Division;

(e) PHPs shall be responsible for payment of covered services (see definition) provided by a non-participating provider which was not pre-authorized if the following conditions exist:

(A) It can be verified that the participating provider (see definition) ordered or directed the covered services to be delivered by a non-participating provider; and

(B) The covered service was delivered in good faith without the pre-authorization; and

(C) It was a covered service that would have been pre-authorized with a participating provider if the PHP’s referral protocols had been followed;

(D) The PHP shall be responsible for payment to non-participating providers (providers enrolled with the Division that do not have a contract with the PHP) for covered services that are subject to reimbursement from the PHP, the amount specified in OAR 410-120-1295. This rule does not apply to providers that are Type A or Type B hospitals, as they are paid in accordance with ORS 414.727.

(7) Other services:

(a) Division members enrolled with PHPs may receive certain services on a Division FFS basis. Such services are referred to as non-capitated services (see definition);

(b) Certain services must be authorized by the PHP or the Community Mental Health Program (CMHP) for some mental health services, even though such services are then paid by the Division on a Division FFS basis. Before providing services, providers should verify a Division member’s eligibility via the web portal or AVR. For some mental health services, providers will need to contact the CMHP directly. In addition, the provider may call the PHP to obtain information about coverage for a particular service or pre-authorization requirements;

(c) Services authorized by the PHP or CMHP are subject to the rules and limitations of the appropriate Division administrative rules and supplemental information, including rates and billing instructions;

(d) Providers shall bill the Division directly for non-capitated services in accordance with billing instructions contained in the Division administrative rules and supplemental information;

(h) FCHPs and PCOs that contract with FQHCs and RHCs shall negotiate a rate of reimbursement that is not less than the level and amount of payment which the FCHP or PCO would make for the same service(s) furnished by a provider, who is not an FQHC nor RHC, consistent with the requirements of BBA 4712(b)(2).

(8) Coverage of services through the Oregon Health Plan Benefit Package of covered services is limited by OAR 410-141-0500, excluded services and limitations for OHP clients.

Certified to be Effective: 10-20-11 thru 3-25-12

Notice Publication Date:

Rules Amended: 410-120-1295

Subject: The General Rules Program administrative rules govern the Division payments for services provided to clients. The Division temporarily amended OAR 410-120-1295 effective to October 1, 2011, to allow providers to be reimbursed at the correct rate for services rendered on or after Oct. 1. The formula established by the reimbursement methodology in ORS 414.743 gives correct and appropriate information to hospitals and managed care organizations when applying the formula to claims for reimbursement for services rendered to medical assistance clients. The statute is based on the budget period that coordinates with the managed care and Division contracts. The Division intends to permanently amend this rule.

Non-Participating Provider

(1) For purposes of this rule, a provider enrolled with the Division of Medical Assistance Programs (Division) that does not have a contract with a Division-contracted Prepaid Health Plan (PHP) is referred to as a non-participating provider.

(2) For covered services that are subject to reimbursement from the PHP, a non-participating provider, other than a hospital governed by (3) below, must accept from the Division-contracted PHP, as payment in full, the amount that the provider would be paid from the Division if the client was fee-for-service (FFS).

(3) For covered services provided on and after October 1, 2011, the Division-contracted Fully Capitated Health Plan (FCHP) that does not have a contract with a hospital, is required to reimburse, and hospitals are required to accept as payment in full, the following reimbursement:

(a) Non-participating Type A and Type B hospital: The FCHP will reimburse a non-participating Type A and Type B hospital fully for the cost of covered services based on the cost-to-charge ratio used for each hospital in setting the capitation rates paid to the FCHP for the contract period (ORS 414.727);

(b) All other non-participating hospitals (not designated as a rural access or Type A and Type B hospital): As specified in ORS 414.743, the FCHP shall reimburse inpatient and outpatient services using a Medicare payment methodology at a designated percentage point less than the percentage of Medicare costs used by the Oregon Health Authority (Authority) when calculating the base hospital capitation payment to FCHP’s, excluding any supplemental payments:

(i) Effective for services on or after October 1, 2011, for a hospital providing 10 percent or more of the hospital admissions and outpatient hospital services to enrollees of the plan, the percentage of the Medicare reimbursement shall be equal to 64 percent;

(ii) Effective for services on or after October 1, 2011, for a hospital providing less than 10 percent of the hospital admissions and outpatient hospital services to enrollees of the plan, the percentage of the Medicare reimbursement shall be equal to 66 percent.

(4) A non-participating hospital must notify the FCHP within 2 business days of an FCHP patient admission when the FCHP is the primary payer. Failure to notify does not, in and of itself, result in denial for payment. The FCHP is required to review the hospital claim for:

(a) Medical appropriateness;

(b) Compliance with emergency admission or prior authorization policies;

(c) Member’s benefit package;
