OHCA Policies and Rules

317:30-3-32. Retrospective review for payment for services to certain aliens

[Issued 09-14-18]

Certain aliens are only eligible for emergency medical services (Refer to OAC 317:35-5-25).  Requests for alien services should be submitted to the local county Oklahoma Department of Human Services (OKDHS) office on Form 08MA005E (MS-MA-5), Notification of Needed Medical Services.  OKDHS forwards the appropriate paperwork to the Oklahoma Health Care Authority where the case undergoes retrospective review for payment by medical staff.   Retrospective review is a process in which a claim and medical records are reviewed after care is provided to validate that the services provided meet the definition of emergency before payment is made. Once a decision to approve or deny the requested services is made then the county OKDHS office is notified and the county OKDHS office is responsible for notifying the applicant and the provider of the decision.
