317:35-15-14. Billing procedures for State Plan personal care

Revised 9-12-22

        Billing procedures for State Plan Personal Care (SPPC) services are contained in the Oklahoma Medicaid Management Information Systems (OKMMIS) Billing and Procedure Manual. Questions regarding billing procedures that cannot be resolved through studying the manual are referred to the Oklahoma Health Care Authority (OHCA). SPPC contractors bill on CMS-1500 claim form. OHCA provides instructions to a contracted Individual Personal Care Assistant (IPCA) for claim completion at the contractor's orientation. The contracted provider submits a claim for each member. The contracted provider prepares claims for services provided and submits the claims to the fiscal agent responsible for ensuring claims are properly completed. All personal care contractors must have a unique provider number. New contracted providers are mailed the provider number after being placed on the claims processing contractor's provider file. All services provided in the member's home,  including Personal Care and Nursing, and all work completed in the provider's office, are documented through the Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) system. The EVV system provides alternate backup solutions if the automated system is unavailable; however, in the event of an EVV system failure, the provider documents time in accordance with internal provider agency policy and procedures backup plan. This documentation is sufficient to account for both in-home and in-office services. The provider agency's backup procedures are only permitted when the EVV system is unavailable.
