Claims Processing Updates for Taxonomy and NPI requirements
The Agency for Healthcare Administration (AHCA) released guidance about updates to the Provider Master List (PML) effective as of March 1, 2022 dates of service. Humana Healthy Horizons has processed claims in accordance with this logic/guidance, generating denials when the appropriate taxonomy, zip, or address information were not billed for providers with multiple active Medicaid IDs and specialties. We want to partner with you to assist in preventing future denials.

Statewide Medicaid Managed Care (SMMC): Continuity of Care (COC) Provisions
Health and dental plans are required to ensure continuity of care during the transition period for SMMC-enrolled Medicaid recipients. COC requirements ensure that members transfer without service lapse between health plans, service providers and service delivery systems (i.e., fee-for-service to managed care).
AHCA has instituted the following COC provisions:
- Healthcare providers should not cancel appointments with current patient
- For 60 days after the rollout date in each region, health plans must honor any ongoing treatment authorized prior to the recipient’s enrollment into that plan
