Agency Urges Physicians to Submit their Attestation for Primary Care Rate Increase
~Providers have until the end of May to attest back to 01/01/2013~
The Agency for Health Care Administration (Agency) is encouraging eligible physicians to submit their attestation to the Agency by May 31 in order to receive the primary care rate increase. The Agency will begin reprocessing claims in June with dates of service from 01/01/2013 to the present for those providers who have attested.
For faster processing, providers are encouraged to utilize the electronic attestation form. For providers without access to the secure Web Portal, a paper attestation form is available on the public Web Portal, mymedicaid-florida.com, by selecting Enrollment > Enrollment Forms >Certification and Attestation for Primary Care Rate Increase.
“It is very important that providers get these forms in as soon as possible to start receiving payments in June,” said Justin Senior, Medicaid Director. “We want to make this process as seamless as possible.”
Once a physician submits the attestation online their provider file will be immediately updated and any claims that process after that time will receive the enhanced rate. Providers should visit the Agency’s website to access an Instructional Guide for completing the attestation form.
