Bayou Health Administrative Corrections for Retroactive Enrollment and Retroactive Disenrollment Monthly Process

DHH identified paid claims associated with administrative corrections of member´┐Żs linkages into Bayou Health Plans. These linkage corrections were necessary to ensure compliance with internal policies, approved Medicaid State Plan and maintaining audit controls.

Beginning March 17, 2015, the process of voiding identified paid claims by an incorrect entity (Shared Plans: CHS & UHC, and Legacy Medicaid) will be repeated on a monthly basis to occur mid-month for administrative corrections made to member linkages in the prior month. Molina will void all identified paid claims with a denial reason code 999 Administrative Correction which is shown on the Remittance Advice.

In order to rebill, providers must verify the correct entity based on the date of service by using either MEVS or REVS. To obtain consideration for payment, providers are required to submit claims to the correct entity no later than 6 months from the date the claim is voided. If PA or Pre-Cert was obtained on the original claim, providers will not be required to obtain additional authorization when submitting these specific prior-paid claims to the correct entity. Documentation must accompany claims verifying the void.

This documentation of prior payment will also support the authorization of the service. Claims submitted within 6 months of the void date will not be denied based on timely filing.

NOTE: Pharmacy claims should not be resubmitted through the Molina POS. All Pharmacy claims should be submitted using the NCPDP universal claim form accompanied by documentation verifying the void.
