Global OB Claims
This is notification that a systematic workaround has been identified to process claims that have denied due to Member’s Benefit Plan changing during the Global OB period. Currently, please continue to bill your claims as you always have.
Within the next month, the first reprocessings will take place of the current backlog of claims that have denied for this reason. After this initial reprocessing, regular reprocessings will occur the 15th of every month for all those claims that have denied within the previous month.
Current plans are in place for a permanent fix to this issue to be implemented by January 1, 2020. However, again, please continue to bill today as you have in the past. More communication will be sent when changes are needed to your current billing process.
2019 CEHRT Requirements
The 2015 Edition CEHRT does not have to be implemented on January 1, 2019. However, participants must use the functionality of the 2015 Edition CEHRT for a minimum of any continuous 90-day EHR reporting period in 2019. The EHR must be certified to the 2015 Edition standards and certification criteria by the FIRST day of the selected EHR reporting period.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Entry of Electronic PAs Using AFMC ReviewPoint Portal to Continue
We are continuing to optimize the Arkansas Medicaid Prior Authorization Process to ensure the best possible experience for providers and beneficiaries. Prior Authorization requests reviewed by AFMC should continue to be submitted in the AFMC ReviewPoint Portal (HTML, new window) until further notice.
Although you can enter the DXC portal now and familiarize yourself with the interface, the DXC Provider Portal will formally launch at a later time and you will be informed when to start using the system for actual submission of prior authorization requests and documents. Until then, please continue to use the AFMC ReviewPoint Portal (HTML, new window) for all prior authorization submissions reviewed by AFMC.
