On November the 15th from December the 15th the IHCP announced that they would be turning on edits for Indiana. These edits will check EVV for non-compliant claims. This means that you may have some claims that were previously approved that will now come back denied. This will mainly happen with claims that have EVV data not matching.
The IHCP edits are intended to ensure that all providers follow the EVV requirements. This is an effort to prevent fraud and abuse in the healthcare system. With these edits, any discrepancies between the EVV data and the claim will be flagged for review and will come back in a denied status. Providers must make sure that their EVV data matches with their claims to avoid potential denial of payment. Furthermore, providers should be aware that non-compliant claims may lead to recoupment of payments previously made by the IHCP
The bulletin above states:
“Beginning Nov. 15, 2023, and continuing through Dec. 15, 2023, the IHCP will temporarily turn on EVV system edits that activate claim denials for noncompliant EVV personal care services. For noncompliant EVV claim submissions, claims will be denied between Nov. 15, 2023, through Dec. 15, 2023.”
“The IHCP will temporarily turn on EVV system edits
What does this mean?
When a non-compliant EVV claim is subject to a hard edit, it means that even if it was previously approved, it’s no longer going to be eligible. Instead, it’ll come back to you denied. This will happen when EVV data is not matching on a claim.
