Federally Qualified Primary Care Provider

(1) Section 1202 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) amended sections 1902(a)(13), 1902(jj), 1905(dd) and 1932(f) of the Social Security Act to require increased Medicaid payment for primary care services to qualified providers for calendar years 2013 and 2014 as specified in these rules.

(2) Federally Qualified Primary Care Services are designated as:

(a) Evaluation and Management (E&M) Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes 99201 through 99499; and

(b) Vaccine administration CPT codes 90460, 90461, 90471, 90472, 90473 and 90474, or their successor codes; and

(c) Administration of vaccines under Vaccines for Children Program (refer to OAR 410-130-0255).

(3) To qualify for the increased payment, the individual physician must attest that:

(a) The physician has a primary practice in family medicine, general internal medicine, or pediatric medicine; and

(b) One or both of the following are true:

(A) The physician is Board-certified in a specialty or subspecialty of family medicine, general internal medicine, or pediatric medicine by one of the following boards:

(i) The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS);

(ii) The American Osteopathic Association (AOA);

(iii) The American Board of Physician Specialties (ABPS);

(B) The physician can demonstrate that at least 60 percent of the procedure codes billed and paid in Medicaid claims were qualifying primary care codes described in section 2 of this rule.

(i) Over the previous calendar year, if billings exist for this time period; or

(ii) Over the previous month, if billings do not exist for the previous calendar year.

(4) To qualify for the increased payment, a Physician Assistant (PA) or Nurse Practitioner (NP) must attest that they work under the direct supervision of a Physician who:

(a) Qualifies for increased primary care payments as described in these rules; and

(b) Assumes professional responsibility for the services rendered by the PA or NP.

(5) Providers seeking the reimbursement increase from the Division of Medical Assistance Programs (Division) must self-attest with the Division. Providers, not enrolled with the Division, seeking the increase from OHP health plans (MCO or CCO), must self-attest with the applicable MCO or CCO.

(6) Reimbursement: Effective for dates of service on or after January 1, 2013, the Division shall reimburse primary care providers as follows:

(a) Federally qualified primary care providers as described in this rule at the rate specified in OAR 410-120-1340(6)(C)(ii); or

(7) Annual review of qualifying providers: The Division will review a statistically valid sample of providers to determine whether they satisfy the criteria described in (3) and (4) of these rules. Providers reviewed who do not satisfy the criteria will be required to reimburse the Division for the difference between the rate they should have received according to OAR 410-120-1340(6)(C)(iii) and enhanced rate in OAR 410-120-1340(6)(C)(ii). The sample will include the following providers:

(a) Physicians who have self-attested to qualifying for the increased rate; and

(b) Providers who have self-attested that they are under the direct supervision of a qualified physician.

Doula Services

(1) The primary purpose of providing concurrent doula services with the services of a licensed obstetrical practitioner is to optimize birth outcomes, including reduced Caesarian sections, epidural use, reduced assisted vaginal deliveries, and reduce the number of neonatal care unit admissions. These face-to-face services are provided only during the labor and delivery phase of the client’s pregnancy. The following are expected to benefit most from doula services:

(a) A woman with a racially or ethnically diverse background including, Black/African American, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, Latino or multiracial;

(b) A homeless woman;

(c) A woman who speaks limited to no English;

(d) A woman who has limited to no family or partner support; or

(e) A woman who is under the age of 21;

(2) Doula services may be provided only at the request of the licensed obstetrical practitioner. The doula and licensed obstetrical practitioner must work concurrently. The licensed obstetrical practitioner must be a physician or advance practice nurse.

(3) Doulas must be certified and registered with the Authority pursuant to OAR 410-180-0325 through 0327. Certification must be effective at the time doula services are provided. Doulas must provide proof of certification to the practitioner.

(4) Doula services are covered for any woman whose benefit package covers labor and delivery.

(5) The provision of doula services during labor and delivery must be documented in the client’s medical record by the licensed obstetrical practitioner.

(6) Payment for doula’s services

(a) The licensed obstetrical practitioner may be eligible for an additional payment, as remuneration for the attending doula providing the doula services;

(b) Doulas may not receive direct payment from the Division;

(c) To be considered for the additional payment, the professional claim for the delivery services must include the unique Medicaid modifier of U9 appended to the appropriate obstetrical code billed at the time of delivery;

(d) This modifier may only be billed once per pregnancy. Multiples (i.e., twins, triplets) are not eligible for additional payment for the doula’s services;

(e) Only one additional payment shall be made for doula services regardless of the number of doulas providing the services;

(f) Only providers with a provider type designation of 34 or 42 may bill the U9 modifier.

(7) Doula services at the time of delivery are the only services eligible for payment under this rule. Services provided during the prenatal and postnatal period are governed by OAR 410-130-0595 (Maternity Case Management).

Codes

(1) ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Codes:

(a) Always use the principal diagnosis code in the first position to the highest degree of specificity. List up to three additional diagnosis codes if the claim includes charges for services that relate to the additional diagnoses. However, it is not necessary to include more than one diagnosis code per procedure code;

(b) Diagnosis codes are required on all billings including those from independent laboratories and portable radiology including nuclear medicine and diagnostic ultrasound providers;

(c) Always supply the ICD-9-CM diagnosis code to ancillary service providers when prescribing services, equipment and supplies.

(2) CPT, and HCPCS Codes:

(a) Use only codes from the current year for Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) and Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes;

(b) Effective January 1, 2005, HIPAA regulations prohibit the use of a grace period for codes deleted from CPT or HCPCS. In the past the grace period was from January 1st through March 31st;

(c) CPT category II (codes with fifth character of “F”) and III codes (codes with fifth character “T”) are not Medical Assistance Program covered services;

(d) Use the most applicable CPT or HCPCS code. Do not fragment coding when services can be included in a single code (see the “Bundled Services” section of this rule). Do not use both CPT and HCPCS codes for the same procedure. This is considered duplicate billing.

(3) The Medical-Surgical Service rules list the 2005 HCPCS/CPT codes that require authorization, or have limitations. The Health Services Commission’s Prioritized List of Health Services (rule 410-141-0520) determines covered services.

(4) For determining the appropriate level of service code for Evaluation and Management services, read the definitions in the CPT and HCPCS codebook. Use the definitions to verify your level of service, especially for office visits. Unless otherwise specified in the Medical-Surgical provider rule, use the guidelines from CPT and HCPCS.

(5) Bundled Services — Reimbursements for some services are “bundled” into the payment for another service (e.g., payment for obtaining a PAP smear is bundled into the payment for the office visit). Bundled services cannot be billed separately to the Division of Medical Assistance Programs (Division) or the client. The abbreviation “BND” in the code lists in the Division Medical-Surgical Services provider rule indicates the procedure is bundled into another one.

(a) The call must last six to ten minutes and provides support and follow-up counseling;

(b) The call must be conducted by the provider or other trained staff under the direction or supervision of the provider;

(c) Enter proper documentation of the service in the client's chart.

(7) Diagnosis Code ICD-9-CM 305.1 (Tobacco Use Disorder):

Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic and Treatment Program

(1) The Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic and Treatment (EPSDT) program, formerly called Medicheck, offers "well-child" medical exams with referral for medically appropriate comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for all children (birth through age 20) covered by the Oregon Health Plan (OHP) Plus benefit package.

(2) Screening Exams:

(a) Physicians (MD or DO), nurse practitioners, licensed physician assistants and other licensed health professionals may provide EPSDT services. Screening services are based on the definition of "Preventive Services" in Oregon Health Plan OAR 410-141-0000, Definitions;

(b) Periodic EPSDT screening exams must include:

(A) A comprehensive health and developmental history including assessment of both physical and mental health development;

(B) Assessment of nutritional status;

(C) Comprehensive unclothed physical exam including inspection of teeth and gums;

(D) Appropriate immunizations;

(E) Lead testing for children under age 6 as required. See the "Blood Lead Screening" section of this rule;

(F) Other appropriate laboratory tests (such as anemia test, sickle cell test, and others) based on age and client risk;

(G) Health education including anticipatory guidance;

(H) Appropriate hearing and vision screening.

(c) The provider may bill for both lab and non-lab services using the appropriate Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) and Health care Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes. Immunizations must be billed according to the guidelines listed in OAR 410-130-0255;

(d) Inter-periodic EPSDT screening exams are any medically appropriate encounters with a physician (MD or DO), nurse practitioner, licensed physician assistant, or other licensed health professional within their scope of practice.

(3) Referrals:

(a) If, during the screening process (periodic or inter-periodic), a medical, mental health, substance abuse, or dental condition is discovered, the client may be referred to medical providers, Addictions and Mental Health Division (AMH), or dental providers for further diagnosis and/or treatment;

(b) The screening provider shall explain the need for the referral to the client, client's parent, or guardian;

(c) If the client, client's parent, or guardian agrees to the referral, assistance in finding an appropriate referral provider and making an appointment should be offered;

(d) The caseworker or local branch will assist in making other necessary arrangements.

(4) Blood Lead Screening: All children ages 12 months to 72 months are considered at risk for lead poisoning. Children ages 12 months to 72 months with Medical Assistance Program coverage must be screened for possible exposure to lead poisoning. Because the prevalence of lead poisoning peaks at age two, children screened or tested at age one should be re-screened or re-tested at age two. Screening consists of a Lead Risk Assessment Questionnaire (Division form 9033) and/or blood lead tests as indicated.

(5) Lead Risk Assessment Questionnaire: Complete the Lead Risk Assessment Questionnaire (Division form 9033) found in the Medical-Surgical Services Supplemental Information. Beginning at 1 year of age, the questionnaire must be used at each EPSDT exam to assess the potential for lead exposure. Retain this questionnaire in the client's medical record. Do not attach the Division 9033 form to the claim for reimbursement. The Division does not stock this form; photocopy the form and the instructions from the Medical-Surgical Services Supplement Information.

(6) Blood Lead Testing: Any "yes" or "don't know" answer in Part B, questions 1-8 on the Lead Risk Assessment Questionnaire (Division 9033) means that the child should receive a screening blood lead test. An elevated blood lead level is defined as greater than or equal to 10 μg/dL. Children with an elevated blood lead screening test should have a confirmatory blood lead test performed according to the schedule described in Table 130-0245-1 of this rule. If the confirmatory blood lead test is elevated, follow-up blood lead tests should be performed approximately every three months until two consecutive test results are less than 10 μg/dL. Comprehensive follow-up services based on the results of the confirmatory blood lead test are described in Table 130-0245-2 and section (7) of this rule.

(7) Children with a confirmatory blood lead level test of greater than or equal to 10 μg/dL are eligible for a one-time comprehensive environmental lead investigation, not including laboratory analysis, of the child’s home. The child may also receive follow-up case management services.

(a) The investigation of the child’s home and follow-up case management services must be provided by a Division-enrolled medical-surgical provider who has received Oregon Public Health Division training to perform these services. Refer to Medical-Surgical Services rule 410-130-0000 for a list of the medical-surgical providers Division enrolls.

(b) To bill for these services, use HCPCS code T1029. Payment for code T1029 includes the home investigation and any follow-up case management services provided after the home investigation is completed. The Division limits reimbursement of T1029 to one time per dwelling. For clients enrolled in managed care plans, the service is payable by the Division; do not bill the managed care plan.

(8) Method of Blood Collection: Either venipuncture or capillary draw is acceptable for the screening blood lead test. All confirmatory blood lead tests must be obtained by venipuncture. Erythrocyte protoporphyrin (EP) testing is not a substitute for either a screening or a confirmation blood lead test.

(9) Additional Lead-Related Services: Families should be provided anticipatory guidance and lead education prenatally and at each well-child visit, as described in Tables 130-0245-3 and 130-0245-4 of this rule.

Immunizations, Vaccines for Children, and Immune Globulins

(1) The Division of Medical Assistance Programs (Division) covers immunizations as recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and approved by the Oregon Immunization Program. The approved ACIP recommendations are found in Guideline Note 106 of the Health Evidence Review Commission’s Prioritized List of Health Services as referenced in OAR 410-141-0520, http://www.oregon.gov/oha/OHPR/pages/herc/current-prioritized-list.aspx.

(2) Providers shall follow the (ACIP) guidelines for immunization schedules. Exceptions include:

(a) On a case-by-case basis, provider may use clinical judgment in accordance with accepted medical practice to provide immunizations on a modified schedule, and;

(b) On a case-by-case basis, provider may modify immunization schedule in compliance with the laws of the State of Oregon, including laws relating to medical and non-medical exemptions for immunizations.

(3) Providers are encouraged to administer combination vaccines when medically appropriate and cost effective.

(4) Providers must use standard billing procedures for adults and for any vaccines that are not part of the Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program.

(5) Vaccines for Children (VFC) is a federal program that provides vaccine serums at no cost to providers for clients ages 0 through 18. All vaccines for this age group and for conditions covered by the VFC program must be obtained through the VFC program. The Division will not reimburse providers for the administration or purchase of privately purchased vaccines if the vaccine could have been obtained through the VFC program. For information about the VFC program or to enroll as a VFC provider, contact the Public Health Immunization Program. The Oregon VFC program website can be located at http://public.health.oregon.gov/PreventionWellness/VaccinesImmunization/ImmunizationProviderResources/vfc/Pages/index.aspx

(6) The Division will only reimburse for the administration, not the serum, of vaccines available for free through the VFC Program. Refer to the 12/24/2013 Current Oregon Immunization Program State-Supplied Vaccine Billing Codes table available at http://bit.ly/1c3T6zy for a list of vaccines provided through the VFC Program.

(7) To receive reimbursement for vaccine administration, VFC program providers must bill the Division:

(a) With the appropriate vaccine common procedural terminology (CPT) code included;

(b) Including the appropriate modifier -SL or -26; and

(c) Reporting the vaccine administration in addition to an Evaluation and Management service (e.g., well-child visit) if provided on the same date of service;

(8) For clients with private insurance, providers may bill the Division or the client’s managed care or coordinated care organization (MCO/CCO) directly for the administration of VFC vaccines. Medicaid and CHIP are not considered the “payer of last resort” for administration of VFC vaccines.

(9) In compliance with Section 1202 of the Affordable Care Act ,VFC providers who qualify for the federal primary care rate increase as specified under 42 Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) 447 Subpart G (see also OAR 410-130-0005) are eligible for reimbursement for the administration of VFC vaccines at the Regional Maximum amount:

(a) Effective 1/1/2013 the Regional Maximum amount is $21.96.

(b) For providers that have met the federal primary care definition, MCO and CCOs are required to reimburse the lessor of:

(A) The Regional Maximum administration fee, or

(B) Medicare 2014 RVU and 2009 conversion factor amount.

(c) MCO and CCOs are not required to reimburse the Regional Maximum amount to providers that have not met the federal primary care definition but may at their option.

(d) For all fee for service providers, the Division reimburses the Regional Maximum amount for the administration of VFC vaccines.

(10) The Division covers immune globulins based on the Prioritized List of Health Services. Synagis (palivizumab-rsv-igm) is covered with prior authorization only for high-risk infants and children. Refer to Guideline Note 69 of the Health Evidence Review Commission’s List of Prioritized Services as referenced in OAR 410-141-0520, http://www.oregon.gov/oha/OHPR/pages/herc/current-prioritized-list.aspx and Oregon Medicaid Fee-For-Service Prior Authorization Approval Criteria as referenced in 410-121-0040, http://www.dhs.state.or.us/policy/healthplan/guides/pharmacy/clinical.html#pa.
