12 TPL Primary Claims (cont). Providers are required to bill insurance as primary before billing Medicaid The only exceptions to this rule are EPSDT, pediatrics, and maternity care visits Providers cannot refuse to accept Medicaid due to the patient having a primary payer New TPL billing procedures Claims will be calculated the same as the Medicare primary claims are It is very important for providers to attach the insurance EOBs on all paper claims, including denial reasons If no EOB is attached with the coinsurance, deductible, and/or denial reasons, the claims will pay $0.00 Coinsurance and deductible information must also be included on electronic claims When billing electronic claims, insurance EOBs must be sent to Unisys with the provider number and member number listed on the EOB Refer to Chapter 600, Section 620 for more details

15 Remittance Advice Changes. Below are requested changes to the remittance advices that are under review Adding the conflicting claims number and original date paid to claims/lines that are denying as duplicates Display the HIPAA adjustment reasons and remark codes, rather than the internal Unisys edits Add EOB to indicate when a claim pays $0.00 due to primary payer paying more than Medicaid allows Print the HMO or PAAS information next to the members name when a claim denies for edit 153 or 171(complete 06/17/2004) Addition of an adjustment reason to reversal/replacement claims Separate Medicare and TPL primary claims from Medicaid primary claims (complete 05/13/2004)

16 Billing Information. Electronic claims must be received by 5:00 pm on Wednesdays to be considered for that weeks cycle You must bill with valid procedure and ICD-9 codes for the billed date(s) of service Consult the 2005 HCPCS, CPT, and/or ICD-9 code books Outpatient hospital claims should not have ICD-9 surgical procedure codes listed on the claim Outpatient hospitals claims must use modifier TC on procedures that are divided into professional and technical components See RBRVS Manuals/Spreadsheets for these codes Inpatient hospital claims should not use CPT or HCPCS codes in block 44 on a UB92 Medicare primary claims processed incorrectly on the 05/27/05 remittance advice. The paid claims will be reprocessed to recoup any overpayments. The denied claims will be reprocessed if they were denied inappropriately. Please note that the Medicare primary claims were not separate from the Medicaid claims on this remittance advice. This is due to the claims processing incorrectly. All Medicare claims will be separate from the Medicaid claims again beginning with the 06/03/05 remittance advice.

17 Billing Information. Rolling Month Service Limit Change 05/01/05 Effective 05/01/05, the rolling month has been corrected to allow services to be billed once each month -Services should still be provided one month apart For example, if you bill on the 15 th of one month, the services should not be provided until the 15 th of the next month. If services are provided on the 15 th of a month, this limit will not allow for services to provided again on the 1 st of the next month Services that are provided throughout the month and have a rolling month limit per calendar month should be billed by spanning the month -For example, if the service limit is 200 services per month and the services are being provided throughout the month, they must be billed once a month by spanning the dates, the 1 st thru the 31 st, the 1 st thru the 28 th, or the 1 st thru the 30 th
