Corrected Residential Services Memo Released by DMAS

May 31, 2016

The first of three memos in the provider reimbursement series (residential services) has been released; the next two (day services and “other” services) are in draft form and will be released soon.

Providers should review the memo carefully as it provides details of the service descriptions, licensing requirements, procedure codes for billing when these services come “on-line,” rates and unit of service.   The details provided will correspond to the regulations when published and, as they are in a Medicaid Memo, can be considered final and “official.”  This series of memos should begin to answer the many questions that providers have had as they try to prepare to implement the new/redesigned services.
