Qualified Obstetric/Gynecological Providers need to self-attest to receive increased primary care services payments

Pursuant to Miss. Code Ann. §§ 43-13-117, 43-13-121, the Mississippi Division of Medicaid (DOM) was granted authority to continue reimbursing eligible providers, as determined by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), for an increased payment for certain primary care Evaluation and Management (E&M) and Vaccine Administration codes. Pursuant to HB 1560, effective July 1, 2016 providers who self-attest to a specialty designation in obstetric/gynecologic medicine by the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) will be eligible for an increased payment for certain primary care services.  DOM is extending the deadline for eligible providers to submit their 7/1/2016-6/30/2017 Obstetrician/Gynecologist (OB/GYN) Self-Attestation Statement form to Xerox.  Effective July 1, 2016, reimbursement of certain primary care services provided by eligible providers will be at 100 percent of the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule. The DOM Primary Care Provider Fee Schedule is updated July 1 of each year based on one hundred percent of the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule, which takes effect January 1 of each year.

How to Attest

To receive the increased payment for dates of service (DOS) beginning 7/1/2016, eligible Obstetric/Gynecological providers must send a completed and signed 7/1/2016–6/30/2017 Obstetrician/Gynecologist (OB/GYN) Self-Attestation Statement form to Xerox Provider Enrollment by 8/1/2016 through one of the following means:

Obstetric/Gynecological providers whose 7/1/2016–6/30/2017 Obstetrician/Gynecologist (OB/GYN) Self-Attestation Statement forms are e-mailed, postmarked or faxed during the extension timeframe of 6/30/2016 – 8/1/2016, will experience a delay in the reimbursement of the increased payment, which will be retroactively adjusted. Obstetric/Gynecological providers must notify Xerox of any change(s) to their completed 7/1/2016–6/30/2017 Obstetrician/Gynecologist (OB/GYN) Self-Attestation Statement form.  Obstetric/Gynecological providers can verify the processing of self-attestation statement forms they have submitted electronically by accessing the Envision Web Portal.
