Webinar: OPWDD CCO/Health Home Billing Process

This webinar will focus on the anticipated billing process and tools CCO/HH will need to have in place. Considering the first year CCO/HH will not employ all care coordinators but instead will contract with agencies to provide this service, adds a layer of complexity in the billing structure that needs to be efficiently managed. Millin Associates currently works with nearly half the Health Homes in NY State that have been established to serve the behavioral health population and will share its experience as it relates to the billing process and discuss some of the anticipated differences.

SOLUTION OF THE MONTH: Are you having issues posting 835 ERA’s?

With the transition of OTP, 822, ACT, and PROS from Medicaid to Managed Care, it appears many agencies are having trouble posting 835 ERA’s into their respective billing system.

In many instances the various Managed Care plans are submitting 835 ERA’s that are somewhat different than the Medicaid FFS ERA’s.

Millin Associates experts were able to quickly identify the differences with the multitude of payers and configure the MillinPro system to accept the posting of the 835 ERA’s. This process is critical as the rate of denials and underpayments have increased under Managed Care and without the ability to post payments, agencies are unable to properly review their accounts receivables and appeal claims as necessary and within the timely filing limits.
