Medicare Carrier changes for AR, LA, MS, CO, NM, OK, TX
November 14, 2012
Effective Summer/Fall 2012, the medicare part A/B providers for Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas will be transitioning to Novitas Solutions, Inc.
This transition will cause existing Client Codes/Fee Schedule lists to become outdated and will need to be updated to continue to have current information. For those wishing to change their carrier to be Novitas, we recommend creating a new Client Codes/Fee Schedule list.
This can be done by the following:
We strongly recommend creating a new Client/Fee Schedule rather than editing an existing one.
This is because the new carrier did not exist previously, and if you switch to a previous date, data such as (Fees/RVUs and LCDs/Articles) will be incomplete. Having two separate locations will make viewing previous dates easier to handle, rather than having to frequently edit your Client/Fee Schedule manually.
Medicare Part B transition dates:
Please also note that there may be some delay before LCDs for Novitas become available for the newly transitioned states. Until then, LCD transition information can also be found here: https://www.novitas-solutions.com/transition/jh/lcd-policy/lcd-crosswalk.html
