Electronic Noticing Effective Oct. 1st
The Department of Health (DOH) has circulated and posted guidance for Medicaid managed care plans on their responsibility to notify members electronically of coverage determination, complaint, grievance, service authorization, adverse determination, or appeal processes under Public Health Law (PHL) 4408-a, PHL Article 49, and 10 NYCRR Part 98. The requirement is effective Oct. 1, 2022 and applies to Partially Capitated Managed Long Term Care (MLTCP) plans, Medicaid Advantage Plus (MAP) plans, and Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE).
