DPW Updates on the Web
February 18, 2005

The Department of Public Welfare (DPW) has added the following information to its web site. Click on the links for more information.

  • The HealthChoices Performance Trending Report 2004 provides performance data for comparative information on managed care plans for managed care plans, consumers, and others. The report includes data from January 1, 2001 through December 31, 2003 from HealthChoices plans in the southeast, southwest, and Lehigh/Capital areas. Please visit www.dpw.state.pa.us/omap/hcmc/HCPerfTrend04.pdf for more information.
  • Minutes from the September 9, 2004 Managed Care Delivery System Subcommittee of the MAAC were added to the MAAC information section of the site, www.dpw.state.pa.us/omap/geninf/maac/omapMCsub090904minutes.asp.
  • The DPW 2005/06 Budget Report is available on the DPW web site, www.dpw.state.pa.us/General/AboutDPW/SecretaryPublicWelfare/003670726.htm.
  • Remittance Advice Alert/PROMISe banner pages have been added to the site.
    • HCSIS information clarifies that during the current processing cycle waiver claims were systemically reprocessed to address issues that may have reduced the payment amount on claims. The reprocessing was completed to correct claims that may have paid at less than what was authorized in the HCSIS Consumer Care Plans. These reprocessed claims (claim adjustments) can be identified by the Internal Control Numbers (ICN) beginning with 52 (www.dpw.state.pa.us/omap/provinf/RA020705a); and
    • Procedure code Q4055 was added to the Medical Assistance Fee Schedule, www.dpw.state.pa.us/omap/provinf/RA020705.asp.
