1. The new rate changes are effective July 1st, 2022.
You may be missing out on money. That’s right – the new Medicaid rate increase went into effect on July 1st, 2022. This means that you may already be eligible for the new rates if you’ve been providing Medicaid services to your clients. However, it’s important to check the updated rate tables on the GAMMIS website to see the specific rates that apply to your agency. The bulletin says “ The Fee Schedules or Rate Tables for NOW and COMP providers are now updated in the Georgia Medicaid Management Information System (GAMMIS) with rates reflecting an increase with an effective date of July 1, 2022. “
2. You must download the changes to see the updates.
Don’t assume that the updated rate tables will automatically appear on the GAMMIS website. Instead, you must download the changes to see the updated rates. Be sure to check the provider manuals on the DBHDD website for the latest Medicaid reimbursement rates.
3. You can only file a new claim for 90 days, but it is not required.
Claims can be adjusted within three months (90 days) of the original claim filing date and resubmitted. We know this is a confusing process. You may want to resubmit claims for the last 90 days to get paid quicker however, this is not necessary. DCH strongly recommends providers NOT void claims. Voided claims are set to recoupment by the system and any problems experienced in rebilling the original claims will result in a delay in a provider agency’s ability to quickly recover those funds. We are here to help at GEOH.
