ICD-10 PROVIDER SURVEY
In an effort to help providers meet the ICD-10 compliance date of October 1, 2014, MassHealth and other Massachusetts health plans have collaborated to issue a second online ICD-10 provider survey. The survey will help to assess statewide compliance efforts underway, provider testing strategies, and will be used to identify resources to aid providers in their ICD-10 preparations. Please complete this brief survey, located at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/HCAS_ICD10_Survey by December 1, 2012. Since only one survey should be submitted per organization, please be sure to forward this survey request to the individual(s) that are responsible for the ICD-10 implementation effort within your organization.
NOTIFICATION OF CHANGE REQUIREMENTS
In accordance with MassHealth regulation, 130 CMR 450.223(B), providers are reminded that they must notify MassHealth in writing within 14 days of any change in any information submitted in their application, including, but not limited to, changes in ownership or control, criminal convictions, or license status. Failure to notify MassHealth constitutes a breach of the provider contract and may result in termination of the provider contract or other sanctions. The absence of notification constitutes confirmation of no changes. Any changes must be submitted to MassHealth. To submit changes through the Provider Online Service Center (POSC), go to www.mass.gov/masshealth/providerservicecenter and click on the Manage Provider Information link, then on Maintain Profile, and then on Update Your MassHealth Profile. Providers without Internet access may submit changes to Provider Enrollment and Credentialing, PO Box 9118, Hingham, MA 02043.
