On 7/1/2019, the Telehealth regulation expanding service locations and allowable providers becomes effective. By now you should have received a provider letter from Kentucky Medicaid that outlines the use of two letter modifiers that would capture the location of both the telehealth provider of service and the location of the recipient. It has been discovered that many of the modifier combinations we chose are not HIPAA compliant and/or are out of the Industry Standard. Because of the fact that claims could be denied due to this error, DMS is postponing the two-letter modifier requirement and will allow claims to be processed without them. Providers will still be required to place the “02” place of service modifier so that the claim will be adjudicated as a Telehealth claim. The Department for Medicaid Services apologizes for any confusion caused by this oversight and thanks you for your time and attention to this decision. When a viable solution is developed to address this data need, we will notify our partners and providers alike.

Effective 3/31/2017 members who are enrolled in an MCO will no longer be receiving a KyHealth Choices card. Members will only be receiving a card from the MCO in which they are enrolled. This change is being made to reduce duplication of effort as all required Medicaid information is located on their MCO card. This change does not affect Fee For Service members.
In addition, members who have had 6 months or more loss in eligibility will not be receiving a new card.

Attention Hospice Providers
Effective for dates of service 1/1/2016 and after, Hospice providers will be able to bill for Service Intensity Add-on (SIA) payments for routine home care services provided by a registered nurse or medical social worker during the last 7 days of a patient’s life. Billing for the Service Intensity Add-on (SIA) payment should be on a separate line and/or claim from your routine home care payment billing using revenue codes 551 or 561, as appropriate. Procedure code G0299 will be required with the use of revenue code 551 and G0155 will be required with the use of revenue code 561. SIA payments must be billed in 15-minute increments (1 unit = 15 minutes) and is to be billed on a claim with occurrence code 55 and an associated occurrence date that reflects the member’s date of death. Revenue codes 551 and 561 must be billed as a single date of service per line (span-dating is not allowed). Please continue billing for your regular routine home care payments with revenue code 651 using the current billing guidelines and unit increment.
