Out-of-network claims

Humana Healthy Horizons established guidelines for payments to out-of-network providers for preauthorized medically necessary services. Except as otherwise precluded by law and/or specified for Indian Health Care Providers, Federally Qualified Health Centers, Rural Health Clinics and certified community behavioral health clinics, services are reimbursed at 90% of the Oklahoma Medicaid fee schedule. If the service is not available from an in-network provider and Humana Healthy Horizons makes three documented attempts to contract with an out-of-network provider, Humana Healthy Horizons may reimburse that provider less than the Medicaid fee-for-service rate.

Payment integrity and disputes

At Humana, we strive to offer our members high-quality healthcare at affordable rates. To achieve this goal, the Humana Provider Payment Integrity (PPI) department reviews claims payments for accuracy and requests refunds if claims are overpaid or paid in error.

Common reasons for overpayment include:

  • An issue regarding the coordination of member benefits
  • Duplicate payments
  • Fraud, waste and abuse detection
  • Incorrect provider reimbursement
  • Medical coding reviews
  • Medical record reviews
  • Member plan termination
  • Subrogation

If you are not satisfied with Humana’s policies and procedures or a decision made by Humana Healthy Horizons that does not impact the provision of services to members, you may file a provider complaint. The provider complaint system consists of two internal steps:

  1. Reconsideration: The first step in the provider complaint system, a reconsideration represents your initial request for an investigation into a denied claim, Humana Healthy Horizons’ policies and procedures, findings of a provider payment integrity (PPI) audit, or the termination of a provider agreement. Most issues are resolved at the reconsideration step.
  2. Formal appeal: The second step in the process; if a provider disagrees with the outcome of the reconsideration, an additional review known as a formal appeal can be made.

Claims overpayments

Providers must report to Humana Healthy Horizons all service claim overpayments for medical services rendered to SoonerSelect managed care plan members, in accordance with Humana Healthy Horizons’ contract with the Oklahoma Health Care Authority (OHCA), within 60 days of identification of the overpayment. Regardless of agreement specifics, the provider or subcontractor must submit such claims after the date on which the overpayment was identified and notify Humana Healthy Horizons in writing of the reason for the overpayment as required by 42 CFR 438.608.

Refund checks for overpayments can be mailed to:
Humana Healthcare Plans
P.O. Box 931655
Atlanta, GA 31193-1655

Humana Healthy Horizons reports all overpayments to OHCA Program Integrity. These reports include all unsolicited provider refunds.
