Comments Due Aug. 24: DMA Clinical Coverage Policy No. 2A-1

The NC Division of Medical Assistance has proposed changes to its Acute Inpatient Hospital Service Clinical Coverage Policy 2A-1. The policy includes proposed changes for reimbursement of behavioral health services provided to patients awaiting an inpatient psychiatric bed when they are admitted as inpatients. See the proposed policy at https://dma.ncdhhs.gov/get-involved/proposed-medicaid-and-nc-health-choice-policies. NCHA is developing comments on the proposed policy to submit by the Aug. 24 deadline. Members are asked to contact NCHA if you have questions or comments, and to share a copy of your submission with mvicario@ncha.org. For more details, see today’s NCHA Regulatory Report which includes proposed rule to convert the existing temporary rules for the criteria and standards for Surgical Services and Operating Rooms to permanent rule status.
