BILLING ON PREPAID
BAYOU HEALTH PLAN RECIPIENTS FOR BEHAVIORAL HEALTH TRANSPORTATION
Emergency Medical Transportation services for
recipients enrolled in a
Prepaid Bayou Health Plan as of the date of service are considered
Carved Out when associated with a Behavioral Health diagnosis (290
through 319.99). This clarification was implemented in processing
effective for claims processed on or after August 9th, 2012. Any such
transportation services for a recipient enrolled in a Bayou Health
Prepaid plan as of the date of service where a behavioral health
diagnosis is present should be billed directly to Molina.
Claims submitted prior to August 9th, 2012, will be
and payment released on the October 30th, 2012 checkwrite
to remediate claims that were incorrectly denied.
