As you know, the current Waiver Management Information System (WMIS) is being replaced by the Harmony WMIS system. This replacement is on-target to go-live on August 27, 2018. During the conversion of information from the old system to Harmony, the new rates reflected in the table will be implemented. All impacted prior authorizations will reflect the new rate backdated to the effective date (July 1, 2018).
Due to the effective date of Harmony go-live, managing the conversion in the existing WMIS system is prohibitive. The effective date to begin billing at the new rate is August 27, 2018. To receive the new rate on any claims already filed with dates of service between July 1, 2018 and August 26, 2018, the claim must be voided and rebilled.
*Reminder: Claim processing through Harmony does not begin until October 1, 2018.
