CALIFORNIA ALLIANCE OF CHILD AND FAMILY SERVICES CALIFORNIA OPIOID MAINTENANCE PROVIDERS SUBJECT: Co-Practitioner Claim Submission Requirements REFERENCE: California Code of Regulations, Title 9 Section Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Services Information Notice 17-040 clarifies a variety of chart documentation requirements, including when two or more providers render services to one or more beneficiaries. The purpose of this Information Notice is to clarify for Mental Health Plans (MHPs) the requirements for claim submission when two or more providers (co-practitioners) render services to one or more beneficiaries. The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) requires MHPs to submit a separate claim for each rendering provider using each rendering provider s assigned National Provider Identifier (NPI) number. Title 42, Code of Federal Regulations, and Title 42, United States Code, 1396a(a) prohibit states from making payments for any item or service furnished by a provider who is excluded, terminated, or suspended from participating in the Medicaid program. In 2013, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) determined DHCS made payments for services furnished by providers who had been excluded, terminated, or suspended from participating in the Medicaid program. OIG recommended DHCS establish policies and procedures to ensure it does not make payments for services furnished by excluded, terminated, or suspended providers. DHCS agreed with this recommendation and began implementing an edit in the Mental Health & Substance Use Disorder Services 1501 Capitol Avenue, MS 4000, Box 997413 Sacramento, CA 95899-7413 Phone: (916) 440-7800 Fax: (916) 319-8219 Internet Address: MHSUDS INFORMATION NOTICE NO.: 18-002 January 10, 2018 Page 2 Short-Doyle Medi-Cal claiming system to comply with OIG s recommendation. Each submitted specialty mental health services claim (837P or 837I) must identify all rendering providers who furnished a service in order for DHCS to ensure it is not making payments for services rendered by a provider who has been excluded, terminated, or suspended from participating in the Medicaid program. MHPs need to submit claims to DHCS in a manner that captures each providers NPI number so that DHCS is able to validate the NPI number against excluded, terminated, and suspended lists. Co-Practitioner Claim Submissions MHPs must comply with this requirement using one of the two following methods: 1. Submit a separate claim for each rendering provider using his/her assigned individual NPI number; or 2. Submit one claim with two or more service lines (one for each rendering provider). Each service line must contain the NPI number for each rendering provider. If you have questions about this Information Notice, please contact MedCCC at (916) 650-6525 or by e-mail at Sincerely, Original signed by Karen Baylor, , LMFT, Deputy Director Mental Health & Substance Use Disorder Services
