Billing for Habilitation Services Magellan Health Services June 11, 2013
Billing for Services Magellan providers billing for Iowa Medicaid Habilitation (HAB) services must bill with HIPAA- compliant codes for services rendered beginning July 1, Claims submitted with non-HIPAA compliant codes (e.g. old W codes) will be denied.
Provider Billing Tips Coding changes are effective July 1, Billing the new HIPAA codes is mandatory; non-compliance is a HIPAA violation. The switch to the new HIPAA codes is based on the date of service, not the date the claim was submitted. Be sure to include required modifier. Use covered diagnosis codes. Use valid place of service codes. Submit claims timely. Timely filing limit is 1 year from date of service. These services require pre-authorization. To authorize services, please call to schedule an appointment.

Rounding Rules – 15 Min. Unit Add together the minutes spent on all billable activities during a calendar day for a daily total. For each day, divide the total minutes spent on billable activities by 15 to determine the number of full 15-minute units for that day. Round the remainder using these guidelines: round 1 to 7 minutes down to zero units; round 8 to 14 minutes up to one unit. Add the number of full and rounded units to determine the total number of units to bill for that day. Providers will not determine daily units by the number of encounters they have with the member during a day, but by the total amount of time spent with the member. Units will not be determined by adding the number of minutes of service for the month and then dividing; units are to be determined on a daily basis.
Rounding Rules – Hourly Units Add all the minutes provided for a day. When the total minutes for the day is less than 60, round up to one (1) whole unit. When the total minutes for the day is more than 60, divide the total by 60 to get the number of hours for the day. This should be rounded to the nearest whole unit, by rounding down for 1-30 minutes, and rounding up for minutes.
Daily Units Daily Home-Based HAB is defined as 8 or more hours per day, based on the average hours of service provided during a 24-hour period as an average over a calendar month. Day HAB and Prevocational Services, the daily unit is defined as 4.25 to 8 hours per day. There is no averaging for these services.
Authorizations Existing service plans for HAB services active as of July 1, 2013, will be honored by Magellan. Magellan staff will be reviewing service plans for members whose plan has an end date of August Magellan staff will be contacting HAB providers on any existing ETP needing renewal.
