IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL ORDERING AND
RENDERING PROVIDERS OF
HIGH-TECH RADIOLOGY SERVICES
RADIOLOGY UTILIZATION MANAGEMENT (RUM)
Louisiana Medicaid has identified an issue related to
the reimbursement of claims for Radiologic services, whereby claims were
paid without an approved Prior Authorization on file. We have identified
and corrected the logic that allowed these claims to pay and have
identified those claims paid in error. These are claims that were paid
against a valid Prior Authorization, but the specific line for the
procedure code was either denied or withdrawn, but the claim still paid.
The claims that were paid in error will be voided on the 07/05/11 RA. If
you have any billing or policy questions, please contact Provider
Relations at (800) 473-2783 or (225) 924-5040.
