ATTENTION ALL PROVIDERS - 2017 HCPCS UPDATE
Louisiana Medicaid is currently in the process of completing the 2017 Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) update. Part of the update includes changing Louisiana Medicaid files to reflect the deleted HCPCS codes for 2017. It is the Department's intent to have the new 2017 codes and updates on file as soon as possible including the appropriate editing and coverage determination for the new 2017 HCPCS codes.
Providers should submit claims for the appropriate HCPCS code to preserve timely filing. Claims denied due to the use of the new 2017 HCPCS codes not on file as of January 1, 2017, will be recycled once the fee schedule updates are complete.
Applicable Fee Schedules on the Louisiana Medicaid website, www.lamedicaid.com, will be updated in the near future to reflect coverage of the new 2017 codes. Providers should monitor their RA messages for additional information.
Please contact the appropriate Managed Care Organization with any questions concerning their 2017 HCPCS updates. For questions related to this information as it pertains to fee-for-service Medicaid claims processing, please contact Molina Medicaid Solutions Provider Services at (800) 473-2783 or (225) 924-5040.
