Upcoming Updates to Nevada Provider Enrollment

HP Enterprise Services (HPES), in partnership with the Nevada Division of Health Care Financing and Policy (DHCFP), is currently working on a web-based Provider Enrollment Portal to automate provider enrollment. The Provider Enrollment Portal will allow providers to complete new enrollment, re-enrollment and provider changes using a web-based application. Future web announcements on this website will notify providers of the implementation date for the Provider Enrollment Portal.

Web Announcement 920

Vaccine Billing Clarification

The Division of Health Care Financing and Policy (DHCFP) is collaborating with the Division of Public and Behavioral Health on tracking vaccines for Nevada Check Up kids under the Nevada State Immunization Program (NSIP). A memo, dated May 4, 2015, was recently sent out to providers from the NSIP. This web announcement serves to provide clarification of the memo.

Currently, providers bill for the vaccine administration with a Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code and the vaccine serum using a CPT or National Drug Code (NDC) with either a zero rate or a modifier SL (state supplied vaccine).

After July 1, 2015, providers who service regular Medicaid and Nevada Check Up recipients may continue to bill for the vaccine administration using the most appropriate CPT code. All vaccine serum will now require NDCs for Nevada Medicaid or Nevada Check Up. Providers must continue to use a zero rate for reimbursement for Vaccines for Children (VFC) vaccines, or the SL modifier. Even with a zero rate on the claim, quantity and days supply must be included on the claim or the claim will deny.

Providers have been inquiring about recognizing the difference between Nevada Check Up and regular Medicaid in the Electronic Verification System (EVS). The type of eligibility will not affect the new way of billing for vaccines, as both Nevada Check Up and regular Medicaid will be billed the same way. For information purposes, in the EVS, regular Medicaid is recognized with a Roman numeral XIX (19) and Nevada Check Up is recognized with a Roman numeral XXI (21).
