Medicaid Prior Authorization And Recovery Of Payment

Concerning placing limitations on prepaid inpatient health plans, and, in connection therewith, removing prior authorization for outpatient psychotherapy and limiting when a prepaid inpatient health plan can retroactively recover provider payments.
Session:
2022 Regular Session
Subject:
Health Care & Health Insurance
Bill Summary

The bill prohibits a prepaid inpatient health plan from:

  • Requiring prior authorization for outpatient psychotherapy services;
  • Retroactively recovering provider payments if a recipient was initially determined to be eligible for medical benefits or the prepaid inpatient health plan makes an error processing the claim but the claim is otherwise accurately submitted by the provider ; and
  • Retroactively recovering provider payments after 12 months from the date a claim was paid, except in certain circumstances.

If a prepaid inpatient health plan retroactively recovers a provider payment that is equal to or greater than $1,000, the bill requires the prepaid inpatient health plan to work with the provider to develop a payment plan if the provider requests a payment plan.
