RCPA is collaborating with key state agencies to host a very important webinar on changes impacting providers of child and adolescent autism services as well as HealthChoices managed care organizations. Representatives from the Department of Human Services (DHS) will review Act 62 of 2008, billing guidance for providers, and the revised ICD-10 diagnostic codes and intervention procedure codes related to children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders. These codes may apply to both commercial health plans and Medical Assistance plans. The webinar will also include updated information and guidance for families. Registration is now open for both sections of the webinar.
The webinar will be held in two sessions on Thursday, August 25, 2016:
- Session 1, 12:00–1:00 pm: The target audience for this webinar session is BH-MCOs, counties, and county oversight organizations.
- Session 2, 1:00–2:00 pm: The target audience for this webinar session is behavioral health and pediatric rehabilitation provider organizations.
All participants are welcome to sit in for either or both sessions. Both webinars will be recorded and made available on RCPA and state websites. The DHS Bulletin related to the changes in diagnostic and intervention procedure will be sent to members once it is issued.
