Indiana Medicaid Changes Course After IHCA Voices Concerns

On February 23, IHCA and other provider associations met with the Indiana Medicaid Director and her staff to discuss their proposal to shorten the FFS Medicaid timely filing limit to 90 days.
We are pleased to report that the Director took our concerns into account and will not proceed with a 90-day filing limit rule. 

In the Director’s full communication, which can be found here, she acknowledged that Indiana Medicaid has work to do specific to the long-term care sector.  In the meeting, IHCA shared specific claims data that demonstrated a significant increase in administrative burden and a collective negative fiscal impact of $40 million if a 90-day filing limit had been implemented.
