Services for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

On July 7, 2014, the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released guidance (CIB 07-07-2014) on approaches available under the federal Medicaid program for providing medically necessary diagnostic and treatment services to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). CMS is not singling out Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) or any other specific treatment in its directive to states, but is indicating the services must be comprehensive and include behavioral intervention.

The Nevada Division of Health Care Financing and Policy (DHCFP) is proposing coverage for ABA services for categorically needy individuals under age 21, identifying Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic and Treatment (EPSDT) as the coverage authority.

The DHCFP is taking the following steps:

  • A series of workshops were held to gain stakeholder input on ABA policy development of medical coverage policy, reimbursement and provider qualifications. The workshop agendas and associated materials can be found on the DHCFP website at: http://dhcfp.nv.gov/publicnotices.htm.
  • Ongoing information regarding the medical coverage policy development for ABA services can be found on the DHCFP ABA webpage at: https://dhcfp.nv.gov/ABA.htm.
  • A Public Hearing will be held on the State Plan Amendment (SPA) and medical coverage policy with an anticipated effective date for the first quarter of Calendar Year 2016.
  • Policy and Rates SPA’s will be submitted for CMS approval. CMS has 90 days for comment.

Currently, Nevada Medicaid covers screenings under EPSDT. See Web Announcement 892 for details.

Future newsletters and web announcements will provide additional information regarding the medical coverage policy development for ABA services, including the prior authorization requirements and billing instructions, as the implementation date approaches. Newsletters and web announcements are posted on the Providers Announcements/Newsletters webpage at www.medicaid.nv.gov.

Provider Types Prohibited from Billing National Drug Codes will Receive Claim Denials

Effective for claims with dates of service on or after April 20, 2015, Nevada Medicaid will have an edit in place to deny claims to provider types that should not be billing for outpatient drugs because they are already included in their reimbursement rate or they should be billing with HCPCS or CPT codes and not with National Drug Codes (NDCs). For example, provider type 33 (DME) should only bill supplies and not drugs. If a PT 33 bills an NDC, the claim will deny with edit code 0897 (Provider Type/Specialty is not allowed to bill NDC).

Only the following provider types may bill with NDCs:

PT 12: Hospital, Outpatient
PT 17: Special Clinics (all specialties except 180, 181 and 182)
PT 20: Physician, M.D., Osteopath
PT 21: Podiatrist
PT 24: Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN)
PT 25: Optometrist
PT 27: Radiology and Non-invasive Diagnostic Centers
PT 37: Intravenous Therapy
PT 42: Outpatient Psychiatric Hospital, Private, and Community Health Center
PT 45: End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Facility
PT 55: Transitional Rehabilitative Center, Outpatient
PT 64: Hospice
PT 72: Nurse Anesthetist
PT 74: Nurse Midwife
PT 77: Physician’s Assistant

Claims from provider types not listed above must only document the HCPCS or CPT codes. If a claim is submitted from a provider type not listed above with an NDC or an NDC with the HCPCS or CPT codes, the claim will deny.

For any questions, please contact the HP Enterprise Services Customer Service Center at (877) 638-3472.
