Section I

I - Introduction McLaren Health Plan (MHP) offers a variety of products and benefits designed to meet the health care needs of each member. To this end, our mission is to partner with providers that offer high quality, accessible and cost-effective health services throughout our service area. MHP products include:

• • • • • •

McLaren Medicaid (Medicaid Managed Care Plan) McLaren Health Plan Healthy Michigan McLaren Community Health Maintenance Organization (Commercial HMO) McLaren Point Of Service (POS) Managed Care Plan McLaren Fully-insured Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) Plan McLaren Advantage (HMO) (Medicare Advantage HMO)

MHP also has a subsidiary that functions as third party administrator (TPA) for self-insured products which include: • McLaren Health Advantage (Self-Insured PPO Plan) MHP combines the resources of independent physicians, multi-specialty groups, ambulatory care centers, ancillary providers, and hospitals to offer members access to a comprehensive array of high quality health care providers. The member’s ID card identifies which type of plan they have (see page 12-13 for examples). MHP will provide you with updated information through mailings and on our websites, at McLarenHealthPlan.org, McLarenHealthAdvantage.org and McLarenAdvantage.org.

About Managed Care The objective of managed care is to form effective links between patients and providers, thereby improving access to appropriate health services while containing costs. However, the specific strategies for accomplishing this goal vary widely from one managed care company to another. MHP’s philosophy is to assign as few “rules” as possible so that health care providers can do what they do best - practice medicine. Our Managed Care products, McLaren Medicaid, McLaren POS, McLaren HMO and McLaren Advantage (HMO) require members to select a Primary Care Provider (PCP) at the time of enrollment. Our PCPs will provide both primary care services and act as care coordinators, guiding members to the full range of health services. Staff at MHP will assist the health care providers in navigating the service delivery system.

About McLaren Advantage (HMO) McLaren Advantage (HMO) is committed to helping members get the care they need. McLaren Advantage (HMO) is a Coordinated Care Plan with a Medicare Advantage contract. It is available to those who are eligible for Medicare Part A and enrolled in Medicare Part B. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) determines eligibility for Medicare. MHP verifies a Member’s eligibility for Medicare Part A, and enrollment in Medicare Part B, before the applicant can be enrolled in McLaren Advantage (HMO). New members are effective on the first day of the month following receipt of a valid application for membership.

Although the member must still select a PCP, for each episode of medical care, the member determines his/her level of coverage based on the “point” from which the member receives the “service.” Medical care is PCP coordinated (HMO-like) care within the network, or self-referred care within or outside the network with greater out-of-pocket expenses.

MHP Medicaid MHP is contracted with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) to provide medical services to eligible Medicaid recipients. MHP provides administrative services and arranges for the provision of all MHP covered services, offering some additional benefits, including transportation. Each MHP Medicaid member selects a PCP, which provides the member with a medical home. Medicaid recipients are entitled to a second opinion from in or out of network qualified health care professionals. Special requirements apply for out of network second opinions, please contact Medical Management for assistance.

McLaren Health Plan Healthy Michigan MHP is contracted with the MDHHS to provide medical services to members eligible for Medicaid expansion. MHP administers the benefits for Healthy Michigan members and arranges for the provision of all eligible covered services. The benefit design of the Healthy Michigan Plan ensures member access to quality health care, encourages utilization of high-value services, and promotes adoption of healthy behaviors. Healthy Michigan Plan members select a PCP which provides the member with a medical home.

McLaren PPO McLaren PPO is a fully insured product. Members do not have to select a PCP or obtain specialty care referrals. This is not a managed care product.

VI - Provider Network National Provider Identifier (NPI) All providers must bill MHP using their unique rendering and billing (if applicable) NPI for claims to be accepted for processing. Providers can apply for their NPI at the CMS website, http://nppes.cms.hhs.gov.

Participating (Contracted) Providers MHP has contracted with an extensive network of quality providers to deliver health care to its members. Unless the member’s benefit allows, members must receive health care services from providers in the MHP network who are listed in the Provider Directory. The Provider Directory for McLaren Medicaid, Healthy Michigan Plan, McLaren HMO, McLaren PPO, McLaren POS, McLaren Rewards and McLaren Advantage (HMO) can be found on our website McLarenHealthPlan.org. The Provider Directory for McLaren Health Advantage and McLaren Select can be found at McLarenHealthAdvantage.org. The directory for McLaren Advantage (HMO) can be found at McLarenAdvantage.org. For example, if a MHP member needs to be hospitalized for an elective inpatient procedure, a MHP network hospital must be used (in addition, inpatient hospital care would require preauthorization).

Non-Participating Providers McLaren Community HMO, McLaren Medicaid, Healthy Michigan and McLaren Advantage (HMO) Preauthorization for services from a non-participating provider must be obtained from MHP’s Medical Management Department prior to services being rendered. Preauthorization will be considered in the following situations: • When a covered service is needed, but not available within the network • When the member needs emergent care while outside the MHP service area and travel back to the service area is not feasible • When a member has begun an episode of care previous to becoming a MHP member (continuity of care)

McLaren PPO, McLaren Health Advantage, McLaren POS and McLaren Select Members are able to seek services both in and out of the network of contracted providers. Members seeking service from out of network providers may be responsible for coinsurance and/or deductible. Please refer to Section X, Referral and Authorization Requirements for more detail.

Section VII

VII - Role of the PCP McLaren HMO, McLaren POS, McLaren Medicaid, Healthy Michigan and McLaren Advantage (HMO) members select a PCP at the time of enrollment. If a member does not choose a PCP, MHP will assign a PCP to that member. A PCP is a MHP participating physician who has contracted to provide primary care services and to coordinate and manage the member’s access to all health services. Each family member must select a PCP and members have the right to change PCPs. MHP recognizes the following groups of providers as PCP’s*: • Family Practice Physicians • General Practice Physicians • Internal Medicine Physicians • Pediatricians • Nurse Practitioners* • Physician Assistants* *Under certain circumstances a member can request primary care services be provided by a participating specialty care physician. For further information, Contact Customer Service at (888) 327-0671.

*Physician Assistants (PAs) and Nurse Practitioners (NPs) Except in an emergency situation, PAs and NPs shall provide medical care services only under the supervision of physician or properly designated alternative physician, and only if those medical care services are within the scope of practice of the supervising physician and are delegated by the supervising physician. PAs and NPs shall conform to the minimal standards of acceptable and prevailing practice for the supervising physician. The supervising physician must be a contracted in-network provider of MHP and credentialed by MHP. PAs and NPs shall only prescribe drugs as a delegate of a supervising physician in accordance with applicable laws, regulations and rules. PAs and NPs must comply with all other applicable laws, regulations and rules. Primary care services should be provided to a member by his/her designated PCP or physician designated to cover for that PCP. Examples of primary care services are: • Annual physical exams • EPSDT visits (Medicaid only) • Preventive care and screenings • Sudden onset of illness • Management of chronic conditions • Laboratory and diagnostic tests performed routinely in an ambulatory care setting 15

McLarenHealthPlan.org (888) 327-0671

Provider Manual

Section VII

Each PCP will receive a monthly Member Eligibility Report listing for these products with all members assigned to the PCP for that month (see sample Eligibility Report in Section XVII). Office staff can also verify member eligibility by accessing FACTSWeb or provider portal. Contact your Network Development Coordinator for information on accessing and utilizing the portals.

PCP as the Care Coordinator When required, the PCP is the member’s care coordinator. As such, the PCP is expected to coordinate and manage the member’s utilization of specialty care, ancillary services, and inpatient services. When a member needs non-emergent inpatient care, MHP recommends that the PCP coordinates the entire episode of care (i.e., initiate the admission or collaborate with the admitting specialist/hospitalist) to ensure timely initiation and appropriate utilization of health services. Case Management Nursing staff can assist in this process and can be reached at (888) 327-0671 or direct at (810) 733-9522.

Children’s Special Health Care Services (CSHCS) PCP MHP, through its contract with the MDHHS, is responsible for working with our provider network to coordinate care for all CSHCS eligible members. To ensure that MHP has PCPs available to handle the complex needs of CSHCS enrollees, MHP PCPs are eligible to receive a care management fee for all MHP CSHCS members assigned to their panel. To become a CSHCS PCP, they must complete a CSHCS readiness survey. This brief survey is required by the MDHHS to ensure that primary care requirements necessary for CSHCS members can be met. If they would like to become a CSHCS PCP, please contact your Network Development Coordinator at (888) 327-0671.

PCP Case Management Program Case management is a collaborative process that assists the member in accessing care. MHP’s Case Management Program includes the PCP. MHP proactively assigns a Nurse Case Manager to each PCP to assist the PCP and/or office staff with any member issues (i.e. arranging community services, assisting patients in keeping their appointments, etc.). The goal of this program is for MHP to be the physician’s advocate. The program has proven successful in many ways, as the PCP has additional resources that can support the management of his/her caseload and at the same time helps to resolve the individual member’s concerns. Please involve Case Management with the care management of your patients. If you need further assistance, please contact the Medical Management Department at (888) 327-0671. If you have a member that would benefit from a contact by a Nurse Case Manager, please complete a Referral to Case Management form. Forms are available on our website and can also be obtained by contacting your Network Development Coordinator.

Provider Manual

Section VII

Coverage Responsibilities All PCPs are contractually committed to provide coverage to MHP members 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Acceptable after-hours access methods include: • An answering service • On-call paging system • Call forwarded to physician’s cell phone or other contact phone • Recorded message with instructions directing the member to another provider There must be a method to talk to a physician 24/7 regarding after hours care for urgent or non-life threatening conditions. There must also be instructions to call 911 or go to the emergency department for life threatening situations. The message should not direct members to seek after hours care at the nearest emergency department for non-life threatening situations. In the event the provider utilizes covering physician(s), we recommend the covering physician also be a participating MHP physician. It is the PCP’s responsibility to ensure that his/her members have access to a covering physician when the PCP is not available. If the PCP is paid on a per member per month basis (capitation), financial reimbursement for services rendered by the covering physician is also the responsibility of the PCP. MHP expects the PCP to maintain ultimate responsibility for managing the member’s care, even when a covering physician provides a portion of the care. Non-contracted physicians who are covering a contracted physician must receive preauthorization before non-capitated services can be rendered to a member.

Accepting Status of Primary Care Practices The MHP Community HMO, POS, Medicaid, Healthy Michigan Plan and Medicare Advantage products assign members to a PCP upon enrollment. Each contracted PCP is designated to have an open practice, unless a request to close a practice has been made and approved.

Changing the Accepting Status of a Practice Changing the accepting status of a practice requires the following six steps be completed in order: 1. The PCP requesting to change the accepting status of the practice to no longer accept new MHP members must also be changing their accepting status with other health plans. 2. The PCP submits a letter, on office letterhead, to their MHP Network Development Coordinator with the following: a. The reason for requesting limitation of members b. Attestation that the practice is being closed to other health plans c. Anticipated period of time new enrollment is to be limited d. Provider’s signature making the request 18

McLarenHealthPlan.org (888) 327-0671

Provider Manual

Section VII

3. The PCP must send the letter to: ATT: Network Development McLaren Health Plan G-3245 Beecher Road Flint, MI 48532 4. The request is reviewed and approved by the Network Development Manager following verification of membership assigned to the PCP. 5. The Network Development Coordinator will respond in writing to the provider’s request within two weeks, indicating approval or disapproval. 6. If approved, the request to limit membership is effective 30 days from the date of approval. After changing accepting status of the practice to a Conversion Only Status, PCPs are required to accept new MHP members whose enrollment was in process at the time of the closure and existing members who moved from other health plans into MHP.

Exceptions Exceptions to MHP’s accepting status policy are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Special consideration may be made in the following cases: • Loss of a partner • Total volume of patient base in direct comparison to office space • Leave of absence • Provider agreement language • If a request for accepting status change is approved by MHP, the length of the status change is limited to six months from the date of approval. After the six month time period, the PCP will be changed to a status of “Open” to accepting new MHP members.

Opening a Practice A participating PCP may open a practice at any time by submitting a letter, on office letterhead to their Network Development Coordinator, requesting that the practice be open to new MHP members.

Data Reporting All providers must submit claims to MHP for every encounter or consultation provided to a member. MHP encourages providers to submit claims within 60 days of the date of service in order to document service utilization. MHP needs encounter data to document the amount of work health care providers perform on a member’s behalf. This data is used to track utilization (the content, type, and timing of services) to monitor over-utilization and under-utilization of services and for required documentation to state regulators, the Health Effectiveness Data Information Set (HEDIS), and accrediting bodies. If MHP does not receive encounter data, it will be assumed that no visit or consultation has taken place, which could have a negative impact on your future reimbursement rates. MHP expects all providers to submit claims even when MHP is the secondary payer and no reimbursement is due from MHP. 19

Professional services should be reported on a standard CMS 1500 form to report all encounters and billable services provided. Please refer to Submitting a Claim in Section XII of this Provider Manual for further details on the data elements required for billing.

McLaren Advantage (HMO) Disenrollment A McLaren Advantage (HMO) member may request disenrollment at any time, for any reason, by notifying McLaren Advantage (HMO). Refer members to McLaren Advantage (HMO) Customer Service at (888) 327-0671 (TTY call 711) if they need information on disenrollment. The member’s termination of enrollment will take effect on the first of the month following the receipt of this written request by McLaren Advantage (HMO). Members are advised to continue to use their McLaren Advantage (HMO) ID card and to coordinate all services through their PCP until their disenrollment becomes effective. If you learn that a member plans to disenroll, you may avoid payment delays by reminding the member to notify McLaren Advantage (HMO), and validating eligibility with McLaren Advantage (HMO) on the date of each visit.

McLaren Advantage (HMO) Involuntary Termination Each member’s enrollment is generally in effect as long as the member retains eligibility and chooses to stay with McLaren Advantage (HMO). The Plan cannot and will not terminate a member because of the amount or cost of services. McLaren Advantage (HMO) can terminate members with CMS approval for the following: • If the member loses entitlement to Medicare Part B coverage • If the member loses entitlement to Medicare Part A coverage • If the member permanently moves or resides outside the service area for more than six consecutive months • If the member has committed fraud • If the member has abused the McLaren Advantage (HMO) Plan Beneficiary ID card and/or benefits • If the member has or demonstrated disruptive behavior that interfered with care for the Member or others Please notify McLaren Advantage (HMO) if any of the situations listed above occurs, so we can discuss the disenrollment request with the Member and if necessary, initiate a request to CMS for member disenrollment. CMS will review all cases and determine whether or not the Member should be disenrolled from McLaren Advantage (HMO), but members have the right to appeal the cancellation of coverage.

Section VII

Procedures for Dismissing Members for Disruptive Behavior or Fraud and Abuse Participating health care providers can request that a MHP Member be involuntarily dismissed from their practice if a member does not respond to recommended patterns of treatment or behavior. Examples include non-compliance with medication schedules, no-show office policies or failure to modify behavior as requested. Any time a member misses three or more consecutive appointments, providers are expected to notify our Customer Service Department for assistance. Providers shall not discriminate against members when terminating from their practice. Involuntary dismissal policies must be designed and implemented in a neutral non-discriminatory manner. We strongly recommend that your office make at least three attempts to educate the member about noncompliant behavior and document them in the patient’s record. Please remember that MHP can assist you in educating the member. After three attempts, providers may initiate the dismissal by following the guidelines below: • The provider office must notify the member of the dismissal by certified letter • A copy of the letter must be sent to MHP at the following address: ATT: Customer Service Manager McLaren Health Plan G-3245 Beecher Road Flint, MI 48532 You can also fax the dismissal letter to: (877) 502-1567 For PCPs only, the letter must contain specific language stating that: • The Member must contact MHP to choose another PCP • The dismissing PCP will provide 30 days of emergency coverage to the patient from the date of dismissal When a Member changes to a new PCP, the provider must forward the Member’s medical records or copies of medical records to the new PCP at no cost within ten (10) working days from receipt of a written request.

Provider Marketing It is common for health care providers to inform their patients about their contracted managed care plans. Advocating enrollment in a specific health plan, however, is unacceptable according to the CMS Medicare Marketing Guidelines. CMS allows providers to discuss participation under specified circumstances. Providers should remain neutral parties in assisting plan sponsors with marketing to beneficiaries or assisting with enrollment decisions. Providers may not be fully aware of plan benefits and costs, and it’s important that beneficiaries receive the right information needed to make an informed decision about their health care options. Therefore, it is inappropriate for providers to be involved in any of the following actions:

21

McLarenHealthPlan.org (888) 327-0671

Provider Manual

Section VII

• Offering sales/appointment forms • Accepting enrollment applications for MA/MA-PD or PDPs • Making phone calls or directing, urging or attempting to persuade beneficiaries to enroll in a specific plan based on financial or any other interests of the provider • Mailing marketing materials on behalf of plan sponsors • Offering anything of value to induce plan enrollees to select them as their provider • Offering inducements to persuade beneficiaries to enroll in a particular plan or organization • Health screening is a prohibited marketing activity • Accepting compensation directly or indirectly from the plan for beneficiary enrollment activities • Distribute materials/applications within an exam room setting Providers contracted with plan sponsors (and their contractors) are permitted to do the following: • Provide the names of plan sponsors with which you contract and/or participate • Provide information and assistance in applying for the low income subsidy • Make available and/or distribute plan marketing material including provider affiliation materials for a subset of contracted Plans only as long as providers offer the option of making available and/or distributing marketing materials from all plans with which you participate. CMS does not expect providers to proactively contact all participating plans to solicit the distribution of their marketing materials. Rather, if a provider agrees to make available and/or distribute plan marketing materials for some of its contracted Plans, it should do so knowing it must accept future requests from other Plan sponsors with which it participates. To that end, providers are permitted to: • Provide objective information on plan sponsors’ specific Plan formularies, based on a particular patient’s medications and health care needs • Provide objective information regarding plan sponsors’ Plans, including information, such as covered benefits, cost sharing and utilization management tools • Make available and/or distribute PDP enrollment applications, but not MA or MA-PD enrollment applications, for all plans with which the provider participates • Refer their patients to other sources of information, such as SHIPs, plan marketing representatives, their state Medicaid Office, local Social Security Office, CMS’s website at http://medicare.gov or 1-800-MEDICARE. • The “Medicare and You” handbook or “Medicare Options Compare” (from http://medicare.gov), may be distributed by providers without additional approvals. NOTE: A provider should not attempt to switch or steer plan enrollees or potential plan enrollees to a specific plan or group of plans to further the financial or other interests of the provider.

Section VIII

VIII - Immunizations Michigan Care Improvement Registry (MCIR) The Michigan Public Health Code and Communicable Disease Rules require that immunization providers report vaccines administered to children born after 12/31/93. Registering with MCIR facilitates meeting this reporting requirement. MHP encourages providers to register with MCIR by calling (888) 217-3900 or online at http://mcir.org. In addition, all vaccines administered to Medicaid members must be reported to MCIR.

Vaccines Available Through Local Health Department Michigan physicians may obtain many childhood vaccines and some vaccines for adults, through the public health system for patients meeting specific eligibility requirements. Health care professionals should check with their local health department regarding the availability of these vaccines for both children and adults.

Vaccines for Children (VFC) Programs Protecting children from diseases that can be prevented by vaccination is a primary goal of MHP and the MDHHS. The federally funded Vaccines for Children Basic (VFC-Basic) and Vaccines for Children Expanded (VFC-Expanded) Programs are cooperatively run by local and state public health departments. These programs provide free vaccines for children, who are enrolled in Medicaid, have no insurance, are American Indian or Alaskan Native, or are underinsured. Vaccines are covered for all MHP Medicaid members through the VFC Program. MHP reimburses practitioners for vaccine administration. However, you may want to consider participating in this program to ensure that all children in your practice, regardless of their insurance status, have access to appropriate immunizations as recommended by MHP’s Pediatric Preventive Care Guidelines and the Alliance for Immunizations in Michigan (AIM). If you are not already a VFC provider and you want to learn more about VFC, contact the immunization program at your local health department, or the MDHHS, Communicable Disease and Immunization service at (517) 335-8159.

Michigan Vaccine Replacement Program (MI-VRP) The MI-VRP program provides certain vaccines for qualifying adults, 19 years of age or older at the local health department and, under certain circumstances, at private providers’ offices.

Section IX

IX - Emergency and Urgent Care Patients often find it difficult to distinguish between an urgent health care need and a medical emergency. Therefore, MHP members are instructed to contact their PCP if a medical problem or question arises which the member believes should be taken care of right away.

Definitions Emergency care is defined as a sudden and/or unexpected sickness or injury that could result in a serious problem or death if not treated right away. Examples of emergency conditions include: • Serious bleeding

• Fracture

• Loss of consciousness

• Chest pain

• Convulsions or seizures

• Sudden high fever in a child

• Severe breathing problems Urgent health problems are not life threatening, but they may require immediate attention. Members are encouraged to contact their PCP if they experience a health problem they believe requires immediate attention. Examples of common urgent health problems include: • Severe sore throat • Minor cuts and bruises associated with trauma • Sprains • Rashes • Severe headache • High fevers • Earache A PCP or covering physician must be available 24 hours a day/seven days a week to provide or arrange for coverage of services.

Emergency Care Program MHP has developed an Emergency Room Program that identifies high utilizers and provides member education and support. The relationship between PCPs and their patients is an important one. The PCP is contracted to coordinate the care of MHP members 24 hours a day, seven days a week. At MHP, we realize this is not always easy or convenient, but caring for a patient’s urgent medical problems instead of automatically referring a member to the Emergency Department, fosters your relationship with your patient, reduces member anxiety and provides continuity of care. Members who have multiple visits to the Emergency Department within a six month period are contacted by their MHP Case Manager. They work collaboratively with the member and the PCP to identify needs the member may have, which contribute to high utilization of the Emergency Department. Case Managers ensure the member has established a relationship with their PCP and educate members on appropriate use of the Emergency Department. Please contact Medical Management at (888) 327-0671 for more details. 25

Provider Manual

Section IX

PCP’s Role in Urgent and Emergency Care Members must contact their PCP prior to an Emergency Department visit unless the member has what he or she believes to be a life-threatening emergency. If the PCP is contacted, an assessment of the situation for severity should determine the appropriate course of action (i.e., STAT office visit, Urgent Care visit, Emergency Department visit or regular office visit). If an Urgent Care or Emergency Department visit is required, authorization is not needed. However, when a member notifies his/her PCP of an intended Emergency Department visit, the PCP should call the Emergency Department to alert them on the member’s behalf. The PCP should notify MHP no later than the next day of the Emergency Department visit. If the member self-refers for emergent care, the Emergency Department staff will evaluate the member’s condition. The member will be treated, stabilized and the PCP contacted. If the condition is non-life threatening, the PCP is contacted by the Emergency Department staff allowing him/her the option of caring for their patient at this point or authorizing Emergency Department treatment. The PCP must arrange for all follow up care. The PCP or covering physician is responsible for coordination of urgent problems 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week.

Out-of-Area Emergent Care When a MHP member presents to an out-of-area facility for emergency care, the institution providing this emergency care (or emergency admission) must notify MHP no later than the next business day.

Out-of-Area Non-Emergent Care MHP’s members may be eligible to receive non-emergent or routine covered services while outside the MHP service area (with prior approval from the Plan) under the following circumstances: • When travel back to the service area is not possible or is impractical • When preauthorization is obtained from MHP

Member Responsibility If the member feels they have an emergent medical condition and does not have time to call the PCP, they are instructed to go to a MHP participating hospital Emergency Department, the nearest Emergency Department, or call 911. Members who go to an Urgent Care or Emergency Department are instructed to identify themselves as MHP members and present their MHP member identification card. Members are encouraged to notify their PCP within 24 hours, or the next business day, of an Urgent Care or Emergency Department visit to ensure that appropriate and immediate follow-up care may be arranged.

X - Referral and Authorization Requirements MHP promotes the traditional primary care relationship between physicians and their patients. PCPs are generally responsible to issue referrals for care outside of the PCP office setting. MHP recommends that the PCP coordinates the entire episode of care to ensure the timely initiation and appropriate utilization of health services. We do recognize that there are certain situations and circumstances in which the specialist provider would be more appropriate to request services. Therefore, referrals and request for preauthorization are also accepted from the specialist provider. The Provider Referral Form is utilized by MHP to obtain preauthorization when certain services outside of the PCP office setting are requested. The Provider Referral Form is available in electronic submission formatcompletion and submission to MHP at McLarenHealthPlan.org or McLarenAdvantage.org. Electronic clinical notes may be attached. An electronic preauthorization request can be submitted. This submission form can be accessed by selecting the Referral Form quick link via the provider tab drop down. The preauthorization request form can also be printed from the same webpage and submitted via fax to (877) 502-1567. Use of the electronic form is secure and is the preferred method of submitting requests for preauthorization of services to MHP. Urgent requests for preauthorization may be made by contacting the Medical Management Department at (888) 327-0671. MHP Medical Management strives to respond to provider requests for preauthorization of services in an efficient and prompt manner. MHP utilizes the following time frames for timeliness of non-behavioral healthcare utilization management decision making: • For non-urgent pre-service decisions, MHP makes decisions within 14 calendar days of receipt of the request • For urgent, pre-service decisions, MHP makes decisions within 72 hours of receipt of the request • For urgent concurrent review, MHP makes decisions within 24 hours of the request • For post-service decisions, MHP makes decisions within 30 calendar days of receipt of the request Providers will be notified by fax of the utilization management decision. As a reference guide, there is a complete listing of service codes requiring preauthorization for each line of business. There is also a complete list, by CPT code, of procedures that do and do not require preauthorization on the website in the same location as the Provider Referral Form. MHP does not require any authorization for in-network (contracted) specialty consultations, or for care provided in the specialist office. However, preauthorization is required, regardless of the contracted status of the physician for: • Certain injections given in a specialist office

27

McLarenHealthPlan.org (888) 327-0671

Provider Manual

Section X

In summary, a completed Provider Referral Form and preauthorization are required for: • Any care that is referred to an out-of-network (non-contracted) physician • Any service listed on the back of the Provider Referral Form • Certain injections (please call Medical Management for clarification) In addition, any health care provider who is not a participating provider with MHP must obtain preauthorization for all non-emergency services provided. Please note that preauthorization requirements are subject to change. Please refer to McLarenHealthPlan.org or McLarenAdvantage.org for the most current information on services that require preauthorization and the preauthorization process. Preauthorization requests are subject to a medical review by MHP and may require additional information and/or documentation before a service can be approved. When completing the Provider Referral Form: • There is an option of requesting an office consult with or without follow up visits • Provider must contact MHP to add any testing, outpatient procedures, or additional consults to other specialists, to the original office consult referral • An in-network specialist can complete the Provider Referral Form to request authorization for services in the non-office setting, such as: • Outpatient surgery • MRI • Physical Therapy The following fields are required on the Provider Referral Form: • Request date

• Referred to information

• Member’s plan

• Diagnosis/Procedure Code

• Patient information

• Facility information

• Requestor information

• Requested Service

If these fields are not appropriately completed, the referral will be returned to the requesting office and will not be processed by MHP. Referrals are valid for the duration of the episode of care, not to exceed one year. The provider may request follow-up or subsequent visits on the same referral form. If the episode of care exceeds one year, a new referral will need to be generated. MHP will return the form to the requesting provider authorized, redirected, pended or not authorized. If the referral is authorized, MHP will complete the Authorization Request Response Form with the authorization number and FAX the referral back to the requestor. The authorization number is automatically activated upon receipt and remains subject to member eligibility on the date of service. 28

McLaren Advantage (HMO) members may go to non-participating providers for: • Emergency care • Out-of-area dialysis care • Out-of-area urgently needed care McLaren Advantage (HMO) members may be sent to out-of-plan providers if the member needs medical care that can only be received from a doctor or other health care provider who is not participating with our health plan. PCPs must obtain preauthorization from our health plan before sending a member to an out-of-plan provider. You can request a preauthorization by calling Medical Management at (888) 327-0671. McLaren Advantage (HMO) members, or their health care providers may request a second opinion for surgery or other medical services, at no cost to the member other than applicable copayments, coinsurance and deductibles. The following criteria should be used when selecting a provider for a second opinion: • The provider must be a participating provider. If not, a preauthorization must be obtained to send the member to the non-participating provider. • The provider must not be affiliated with the member’s PCP or the specialist practice group from which the first opinion was obtained. • The provider must be in an appropriate specialty area. • Results of laboratory tests and other diagnostic procedures must be made available to the provider giving the second opinion.

Inpatient Hospital Services: Provider All patient hospital admissions require preauthorization (except in emergency situations). For Inpatient elective or urgent admissions the provider must contact MHP’s Medical Management department by calling (888) 327-0671 toll-free or by calling your Case Management Nurse directly. For elective admissions notify MHP at least 7 business days in advance and for urgent admissions notify MHP prior to admission or within 24 hours (or next business day), including the clinical information that supports the need for inpatient care. All elective and urgent hospitalizations must be made to a MHP network hospital unless prior approval from our Medical Management Department has been obtained.

Inpatient Hospital Services: Facility Contracted facilities must notify MHP of all admissions and provide clinical information within one business day of the admission. Timely facility notification allows us to ensure our members are receiving care in the most appropriate setting, that our Medical Management Nurses are involved in the members care, including discharge planning, and that case management is initiated when appropriate. Notify us of admissions by telephone or fax: Telephone: (888) 327-0671 (toll free) | Fax: (877) 502-1567 (toll free) | (810) 733-9645 (direct)

Section X

If the clinical information meets MHP’s criteria for admission, an authorization will be given. If additional information is needed to verify the level of care for any admission, an Authorization Process is faxed to the hospital. After medical review the form is returned with the final authorization number for reimbursement purposes. In addition, for all inpatient admissions, the Medical Management Department will conduct concurrent reviews. Concurrent review of inpatient admissions requires frequent and comprehensive updates to verify need for continued stay and to aid in discharge planning. If adequate and timely information is not received during concurrent review, the status of the authorization may be adversely affected. In addition, notification of the inpatient admission is required prior to a member’s discharge. This also includes a required notification to MHP of a member’s date of discharge. Failure to supply the information necessary may result in non-payment of a hospital admission. The member’s Case Management nurse will work with the hospital staff in managing the stay and assist with the planning and determining discharge needs. When an admission occurs through the emergency room, we ask that the hospital contact the PCP prior to admission to discuss the member’s medical condition and to coordinate care prior to admitting. For inpatient obstetrical admissions, MHP requires that hospitals provide both admission and discharge information for all deliveries. The following information must be provided within 48 hours of delivery: • Admission date

• Type of delivery

• Delivery date

• Status of the mother and baby

• Discharge date Newborns discharged home with their mothers from the newborn nursery do not require a separate authorization from their mother. However, we do require a separate authorization within 24 hours when the newborn requires extended services. Examples include when a newborn: • Is admitted directly into the NICU or Special Care Nursery from the delivery room • Is transferred to an NICU or Special Care Nursery from the newborn nursery • Remains in the nursery after the mother is discharged If questions arise regarding the appropriateness of any inpatient admission or the course of treatment, a concurrent review nurse, or MHP’s Chief Medical Officer, will contact the hospital utilization review staff and/or the admitting physician to discuss the case. Please contact Medical Management at (888) 327-0671 for further details.

Outpatient/Observation Stay: Facility Sometimes a facility may request Inpatient Authorization for an episode of care when an Outpatient Authorization is more appropriate. MHP considers an episode of care to be more appropriately authorized as outpatient when medical documentation reveals that a patient’s presenting symptoms have been stabilized or resolved with emergency room treatment, but additional time is needed for continued short term treatment and/or observation. In addition to the evaluation of the emergency room treatment results, many other factors are also considered, such as patient’s medical history, medical predictability of adverse outcomes with presenting signs and symptoms, and the expectation that the episode of care may be resolved in a short period. 30

McLarenHealthPlan.org (888) 327-0671

Provider Manual

Section X

Also, to help identify outpatient stays, system edits will identify an episode of care lasting less than 48 hours and members with a specific presenting diagnosis. Examples of diagnoses (not all inclusive) that may be reviewed for reimbursement as an outpatient include: • Asthma

• Dehydration (gastroenteritis)

• Bronchitis/bronchiolitis

• Overdose/alcohol intoxication

• Cellulitis

• Pain: e.g., abdominal, head, back

• Chest pain

• Pneumonia

• Closed-head injury without

• Pyelonephritis

 loss of consciousness

• Syncope

If the clinical information suggests that the admission requires outpatient authorization and the hospital is pursuing an inpatient authorization, additional clinical information will be required. The Authorization Process form will be faxed to the hospital to aid in the determination of the final authorization for reimbursement. After medical review the form is returned with the final authorization number for reimbursement purposes. MHP will respond to a non-contracted facilities request for approval of post-stabilization services within one (1) hour. If MHP does not respond within one (1) hour, the post-stabilization services (hospitalization or other health care services) will be prior authorized for payment. Payment and authorization for an inpatient hospitalization in this instance will be for inpatient DRG, not as observation payment. Additionally, outpatient reimbursement for observation care is not payable in the following situations: • After outpatient surgery ‑‑ Reimbursement for recovery room care is included in the outpatient surgical fees • For monitoring of pregnancy related conditions such as preterm labor, hyperemesis gravidarum, and gestational diabetes. These services are billable in the outpatient setting using the labor room/delivery room revenue code only

Readmissions: Facility MHP reviews all inpatient readmissions when readmission occurs within 14 days after a member is discharged. We review cases to determine if the readmission is related to the first admission for reasons such as: • Premature discharge or a continuity of care issue • Lack of, or inadequate, discharge planning • A planned readmission • Complications from surgery performed on first admission The outcome of the review may impact the hospital’s reimbursement. When providing clinical review for members readmitted to the same hospital within 14 days, please provide a clinical review for the last two days of the first admission, and an admission review for the second, when calling in the second admission. If readmission involves a different facility, MHP will seek the clinical information from the first admission to determine if either hospital’s reimbursement is impacted. 31

Clean claims not processed in this time period are eligible for interest payments at twelve percent (12%) per annum in compliance with Michigan’s prompt payment legislation (Public Act 28 of 2004). Public Act 28 defines a clean claim when the following information is present on the claim: • Identifies the provider of service, including any provider identification number and Federal Tax Identification number • Lists the patient name and their ID numbers • Lists the date(s) and place of service • The claim is a bill for covered services for an eligible member • The claim is a bill for medically necessary and appropriate care • The claim contains preauthorization or pre-certification information, if required • The claim identifies the services rendered by using proper procedure and diagnosis codes • The claim includes additional information when required by MHP

Section XII

Non-Clean Claims When MHP is unable to process a submitted claim, notification will be provided identifying the reason for rejection. Common reasons include: • Valid NPI is missing or incorrect • Unable to identify the provider (using your NPI) • Unable to identify the member (copy the name and member number from the MHP ID card) • Provider did not complete form correctly MHP’s Ineligible (Reason) Codes and their definitions are listed in the Forms Section XVII.

Billing for Physician Administered Drugs and NDC Reporting Providers are required to report the National Drug Code (NDC) supplemental information in addition to the procedure code (CPT or HCPCS) when billing for a physician administered drug on the electronic and paper claim formats. This requirement is mandated to ensure the MDHHS’s compliance with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). The PPACA requires Medicaid to collect rebates for certain drugs. When billing MHP for physician administered drugs, in addition to the appropriate CPT or HCPCS codes, the following must be reported on the claim: • 11-digit NDC number • Unit price (EDI only) • 2-digit unit of measure code, e.g. GM (gram), ML (milliliter), UN (unit) • Quantity dispensed • The prescription number Due to the implementation of the HIPAA X12 version 5010, only one LIN segment is used to report the supplemental NDC information along with the HCPCS Code. For electronic and DDE claims, the prescription number must be reported to link multiple service lines together for the same procedure code. If billing multiple lines for the same injectable medication due to different NDC numbers, a 59 modifier is required.

Coordination of Benefits (COB) MHP does not pay a claim when it is unclear as to whether MHP is the primary or secondary payer. We recommend that you always ask patients when they register if they have coverage from more than one insurance carrier or if their injury is the result of an accident. When MHP is secondary, be sure to submit a copy of the primary carrier’s Explanation of Benefits (EOB) along with your claim and indicate in the “Remarks” section that an EOB is attached.

42

McLarenHealthPlan.org (888) 327-0671

Provider Manual

Section XII

COB claims should be submitted on paper since the EOB received from the primary payer must accompany the claim. COB claims must be submitted to MHP within twelve (12) months from the date of service or 90 days from the date of the primary payers EOB. Submit all claims to: McLaren Health Plan PO Box 1511 Flint, MI 48501-1511

COB Provider Payment Reports (PPR) When a claim is submitted to MHP for coordination of benefits, the primary payer may have been paid more than the plan’s allowable amount. When this happens, the provider will see a provider discount amount on the PPR, but no ineligible code. This is explained by subtracting the discounted amount from the charged amount, giving you the plan’s allowed amount. The primary payer’s amount will be listed in the “Other Carrier” column of the PPR. This amount will be more than the Plan’s allowed amount.

Checking the Status of Your Claims or Requesting a Claims Adjustment All claim inquiries and adjustments must be submitted to MHP within 90 calendar days of the administrative action, excluding COB/subrogation claims. Inquiries and requests for adjustments after 90 calendar days will not be given consideration. You can status your claim in our system by accessing FACTSWeb or provider portal. Both portals are HIPAA compliant and will allow: • You, or anyone you designate, to status claims submitted by you, and also to verify member eligibility and coverage • You will need to apply for access and will be given a password • FACTSWeb allows one password per Federal Tax Identification number • Application forms are included in Forms Section XVII of this manual. You can also status a claim by completing the Provider Claims Status Fax Form and faxing it to Customer Service at (877) 502-1567. For a Provider Claims Status Fax Form, see Forms Section XVII or visit McLarenHealthPlan.org. Please remember, just as MHP must pay simple interest on clean claims not processed within 45 days, providers can be fined for re-submitting duplicate claims during this same time period. Also, your claim will not be statused within this time period. Providers who wish to request a claims adjustment to correct a previously submitted claim, believe a service was denied inappropriately or a claim did not pay correctly, are encouraged to do one of the following:

43

McLarenHealthPlan.org (888) 327-0671

Provider Manual

Section XII

• Complete the Provider Claim Adjustment Form, see Forms Section XVIII or McLarenHealthPlan.org, attaching a paper copy of the corrected claim or the claim in dispute, and supporting documentation for the adjustment, and fax it to Customer Service at (877) 502-1567 for processing. • Contact Customer Service at (888) 327-0671 to request a claim adjustment. Requests for claim adjustments cannot be submitted electronically. The completed Provider Claim Adjustment Form must accompany a paper claim to avoid it from being automatically denied as a duplicate claim.

Submitting a Claim In general, MHP follows the claim reimbursement policies and procedures set forth by the MDHHS for Medicaid and the CMS for Medicare, its Commercial business and Health Advantage. Provider shall comply with MHP’s payment policies. Please contact MHP for details.

Claims Recovery MHP identifies opportunities to recover payments made to providers. The claims recovery process will include adjustments on the following types of previously paid claims including, but not limited to: • COB • Subrogation • Clinical Inpatient Review • Overpayments due to billing, clerical error and termination of a member’s coverage COB includes the following: • MHP paid primary and then found out at a later date the MHP should have paid secondary or tertiary • MHP paid primary/secondary and then found out at a later date that MHP should not have paid at all The following table outlines the timeframes for MHP to request funds or do take-backs.

Appeals, if any, will be handled in accordance with the appeals section (see Provider Administrative Appeals, section XIV).

Termination of a Member’s Coverage At times, MHP receives notice from an employer, including the State of Michigan for Medicaid members, that they are retroactively terminating their benefits through MHP. For any services provided and payments made during this period, MHP shall recover those payments. Payments will be recovered up to twelve (12) months from the date of service. Providers may bill the terminated member or another insurance carrier as appropriate for services provided during the retroactive period.

Understanding the Remittance Advice The goal at MHP is to use a Provider Payment Report (PPR) format that makes our claims processing information understandable. Please review the information on the following sample PPR form to better understand the information and features of our PPR.

835 and EFT Options To add efficiency and speed to the payment of claims, MHP offers several payment options available through Pay Plus Solutions, Inc.®. 835 remittance delivery options are also available.

XIII - Pharmaceutical Management - Commercial and Medicaid Commercial Pharmaceutical Management Introduction Pharmaceutical Management promotes the use of the most clinically appropriate, safe and cost effective medications. MHP works together with a Pharmacy Benefits Manager to administer drug formularies, which fit industry standards and meet all required regulations. MHP offers two Commercial drug formularies: • Standard Commercial Drug Formulary: Used by Large Groups with 50 or more employees. • On/Off the Marketplace Drug Formulary: Used by Individuals and Small Groups with less than 50 employees. Both MHP Commercial Drug Formularies include one or more medications in each therapeutic class covered under a member’s pharmacy benefit. The drug formularies can be found at McLarenHealthPlan.org or through the Epocrates system. In addition to the full drug formularies, MHP has created Quick Formulary Guides for each commercial formulary. The Quick Guide is a list of commonly prescribed medications, which are covered under MHP. The Quick Guide is sorted by drug class and can be obtained in new member packets, on the website or by calling our Customer Service Department at (888) 327-0671.

Prescription Drug Rider Coverage and applicable copayment amounts for medications are based on a member’s specific Drug Rider. The member must have a Drug Rider to have pharmacy benefit coverage. A copy of the member specific Drug Rider is included in each new member packet. Please contact our Customer Service Department at (888) 327-0671 for Drug Rider related questions.

Covered Benefits • Federal legend drugs identified on a MHP Commercial Drug Formulary. • Select over-the-counter (OTC) items, identified on the drug formulary, prescribed by a prescribing provider. • Diabetic supplies limited to needles, syringes, lancets and Bayer® manufactured test strips.

Non-Covered Benefits • Cosmetic medications or medications prescribed for cosmetic purposes. • Medications used for investigational or unproven uses. • Medical foods or agents that are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration. • OTC medications not listed on the drug formulary. • Vaccines. In addition, the drug benefit does not reimburse for drug products acquired for or administered in an inpatient hospital, outpatient hospital, emergency room or clinic, physician’s office or clinic.

Provider Manual

Section XIII

Medication Copayment Tiers Pharmacy copayments are determined per the member specific Drug Rider and by the placement of medications into copayment levels, also known as Tiers, on the drug formulary. The MHP Commercial formularies have the following tiers: • Formulary Generic: Formulary preferred generic medications, lowest copay. • Formulary Brand Name: Formulary preferred brand name medications, medium copay. • Non-Preferred Brand Name or Generic: Brand name and generic medications which have been designated as non-preferred, highest copay. • Preventive: Zero copay. • Specialty.

Dispense as Written (DAW) and Generic Mandate Policy There is automatic generic substitution required on all prescriptions covered by MHP. If a prescribing provider requests a brand name when a generic version is available (DAW-1), reimbursement to the pharmacy will be at the established Maximum Allowable Cost (MAC) limits. The member will be charged the difference in price between the brand name product and the generic product, plus any applicable copay, unless a prior authorization request, see Forms section XVII, has been approved by the health plan. If a member requests a brand name medication when a generic version is available, DAW-2 designated on the prescription, reimbursement will be at the established MAC limit. The member will be responsible for the difference in price between the brand name product and the generic product, plus any applicable copay. If a pharmacy is out of stock of a generic medication and chooses to dispense the brand name product, reimbursement to the pharmacy will be at the MAC limit. The member has the option of obtaining the generic drug, covered in full, at another pharmacy within MHP’s pharmacy network.

Step Therapy (ST) Edits Step Therapy Edits allow MHP to define a logical sequence of therapeutic alternatives. MHP provides coverage for medications indicated as “ST” (Step Therapy restricted) after a predetermined previous or concurrent drug therapy sequence has been met.

Prior Authorization/Drug Exception Request MHP has placed a Prior Authorization (PA) restriction on certain medications within the drug formularies. PA means the medication requires special approval before it will be considered for coverage under MHP. A medication may require a prior authorization due to safety concerns or to ensure a more cost-effective formulary alternative cannot be used. If a prescribing provider feels a medication which requires prior authorization is medically necessary,

48

McLarenHealthPlan.org (888) 327-0671

Provider Manual

Section XIII

then a prior authorization form, found in the Forms section XVII, should be completed by the prescribing provider and faxed to the number indicated on the form. Please contact MHP at (888) 327-0671, if they should have questions regarding the PA process or the status of a PA request. Note: If the member is in need of an emergency supply of a medication that requires prior authorization, please contact our Customer Service Department at (888) 327-0671 for assistance.

Compounded Medications All compounded medications require PA. Upon approval, the medication must be obtained via an innetwork compounding pharmacy. Paper claims submitted by an out-of-network compounding pharmacy will not be accepted.

Mail Order Pharmacy MHP has contracted mail order pharmacies. Our members can fill up to a 90-day supply of brand name medications through the mail order after a 30-day trial has been completed. Mail order brochures are available at McLarenHealthPlan.org or by calling our Customer Service Department. Note: Generic medications cannot be obtained via the mail order.

Specialty Pharmacy Medications Medications on a drug formulary identified with a Specialty Pharmacy (SP) restriction, must be obtained via a MHP approved specialty pharmacy. The specialty pharmacy will mail the specialty pharmacy medication to the member’s home or to the prescribing provider’s office. All specialty pharmacy medications are limited to no more than a 30-day supply. Medications used to treat cancer, endometriosis, Hepatitis C, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis are some examples of specialty pharmacy required agents.

Dose Optimization and Quantity Limits Quantity limits (QL) are used to ensure patient safety, increase patient compliance and decrease pharmacy costs. Medications with quantity limits are identified on a drug formulary with a QL restriction. The health plan may limit the quantity of a medication to: • A specified quantity per day, month or year. • A specified quantity per lifetime. • A specified quantity across a drug class. Note: If a prescribing provider feels a different quantity is medically necessary for a member, a request for PA (see Forms section XVII) should be submitted to the health plan for review.

Drug Formulary Review and Modification A committee of health professionals (doctors, pharmacists and nurses) meets throughout the year and maintains the MHP Commercial Drug Formularies. The following changes have an impact on the Commercial Drug Formularies:

49

McLarenHealthPlan.org (888) 327-0671

Provider Manual

Section XIII

• Drug recalls. • Marketplace withdrawals/product discontinuation. • New generic availability. • New medication releases. Prescribing providers may ask for a modification to any drug formulary by contacting our Pharmacy Administration Department at (810) 244-1660 or by faxing in a written request to (810) 213-0290. Requests for formulary modification will be reviewed by our Pharmacy Administration Department and taken to the formulary committee for determination.

Medicaid Pharmaceutical Management Introduction Pharmaceutical Management promotes the use of the most clinically appropriate, safe and cost effective medications. MHP’s Medicaid Drug Formulary is based upon the Michigan Medicaid Common Drug Formulary (Common Formulary). The use of the Common Formulary is a requirement of all Medicaid health plans in the state of Michigan. One or more medications are available in all required drug classes. The drug formulary can be found at McLarenHealthPlan.org or through the Epocrates system. In addition to the drug formulary, MHP has a Quick Formulary Guide (Quick Guide). The Quick Guide is a list of commonly prescribed medications which are covered by MHP. The Quick Guide is sorted by drug class and can be found in new member packets, on the website or by calling our Customer Service Department at (888) 327-0671.

Covered Benefits • Medications listed on the Common Formulary. • Federal legend drugs identified on the MHP-Medicaid Drug Formulary. • Select over-the-counter (OTC) items, identified on the Medicaid Pharmaceutical Product List (MPPL), prescribed by a prescribing provider. • Diabetic supplies limited to needles, syringes, alcohol swabs, lancets and Bayer® manufactured test strips.

Non-Covered Benefits • Medications that are not listed on the MPPL. • Medications prescribed for cosmetic or convenience purposes. • Experimental or unproven use of medications. • Medications which are excluded from coverage under Michigan Medicaid, including but not limited to the following: • Diet aids • Cough and cold medications • Sexual enhancement or Erectile Dysfunction Medications • Medications used to promote fertility 50

Provider Manual

Section XIII

• Medical foods or agents that are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration In addition, the drug benefit does not reimburse for drug products acquired for or administered in an inpatient hospital, an outpatient hospital emergency room or clinic, a physician’s office or clinic.

Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) Carve Out Program MDHHS has created a list of medications that are not reimbursable under MHP. These medications are identified on the drug formulary as “Carved Out.” Any medication listed as Carved Out should be billed to straight FFS Medicaid. For questions regarding a medication identified as Carved Out, please contact the Magellan Medicaid Beneficiary Help Line at (877) 681-7540.

Dispense as Written (DAW) and Generic Mandate Policy Automatic generic substitution is required on all prescriptions. If a generic form of a medication is available and a provider feels the brand name is medically necessary, the prior authorization process can be used (see Prior Authorization/Drug Exception Request section below).

Prior Authorization/Drug Exception Request Certain medications are identified as having a prior authorization (PA) restriction. PA means special approval must be given by MHP before the medication will be covered through a pharmacy. A medication may require a PA due to safety concerns or to ensure a more cost effective formulary alternative can be used. If a prescribing provider feels a medication which requires PA is medically necessary than the Prior Authorization form (see Forms section XVII), should be completed by the prescribing provider and faxed to the number indicated on the form. Please contact MHP at (888) 327-0671 if they have questions regarding the PA process or the status of a PA request. Note: If the member is in need of an emergency supply of a medication that requires PA, please contact our Customer Service Department at (888) 327-0671 for assistance.

Step Therapy Edits Step therapy (ST) edits allow MHP to define a sequence of medication alternatives. MHP provides coverage for medications indicated as ST required after a list of formulary alternatives have been tried and failed.

Compounded Medications All compounded medications require prior authorization. Upon approval the medication must be obtained through an in-network compounding pharmacy and billed to MHP electronically. Paper claims submitted by an out-of-network compounding pharmacy will not be accepted.

Specialty Pharmacy Medications Specialty Pharmacy (SP) medications are used to treat complex medical conditions and may require special storage and handling. Medications on the drug formulary identified with a Specialty Pharmacy (SP) restriction, upon prior authorization approval, must be obtained via an MHP approved specialty pharmacy. 51

McLarenHealthPlan.org (888) 327-0671

Section XIII

The specialty pharmacy will mail the specialty pharmacy medication to the member’s home or to the prescribing provider’s office. Some examples of specialty pharmacy agents are medications used to treat cancer, endometriosis, Hepatitis C, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis.

Dose Optimization and Quantity Limits Quantity limits are used to ensure patient safety, increase patient compliance and decrease pharmacy costs. Medications with quantity limits are identified on the drug formulary with a Quantity Limit (QL) restriction. MHP may limit the quantity of a medication to: • A specified quantity per day, month or year. • A specified quantity per lifetime. • A specified quantity across a drug class. Note: If a prescribing provider feels a different quantity is medically necessary for a patient, a request for prior authorization should be submitted to MHP for review.

Drug Formulary Review and Modification A committee of health professionals (doctors and pharmacists) maintains the Common Drug Formulary. This committee meets a minimum of four times per year to review changes in the market which may effect the drug formulary. Changes in the market may include, but are not limited to: • Drug recalls. • Marketplace withdrawals or product discontinuation. • New generic availability. • New medication releases. Prescribing providers may ask for a modification to the drug formulary by contacting our Pharmacy Administration Department at (810) 244-1660 or by faxing a written request to (810) 213-0290. Requests for formulary modification will be reviewed by our Pharmacy Administration Department and then taken to the formulary committee for determination.

Section XIV

XIV - Provider Administrative Appeals It is the goal of MHP to resolve provider issues before reaching an appeal level. MHP encourages providers to first contact Customer Service when a dispute occurs. If, after informally attempting to resolve the dispute through a verbal contact or a Provider Claims Adjustment, a provider continues to disagree with an administrative action taken by MHP, a written formal appeal may be filed.

Appeals Process: Investigation and Result A provider may appeal an administrative action by MHP by submitting the following: • Within 90 calendar days of the administrative action by MHP, the provider must complete and submit a Provider Request for Appeal (PRA) form and attach a copy of the claim in paper form. For a PRA form, see Forms Section XVIII or visit our website at McLarenHealthPlan.org. These two items and any additional information should be sent to: ATT: Appeals McLaren Health Plan G-3245 Beecher Road Flint, MI 48532 • Supporting documentation must be included with the PRA form. This would include information not previously submitted regarding the reason and rational for the appeal. • The paper claim must be attached to the PRA form (cannot submit EDI). MHP staff will research the necessary contractual, benefit, claims, medical record information, and other pertinent clinical documentation to reassess the appropriateness of the initial decision and make a new determination.

Appeal Time Frames PRA form must be received within 90 calendar days of the disputed action. Disputed actions dates are from the latter of the: • Explanation of Payment (EOP); • Original claim date of service; • Adjusted EOP; or • Authorization decision. The right to appeal is forfeited if the provider does not submit a written request for an appeal within this 90 calendar day time frame, and any charges in dispute must be written off.

What Disputed Actions Can Be Appealed Providers may appeal such administrative actions taken by MHP related to: • Denial of inpatient days or other services; • Denial of authorization; • Place of service authorization (inpatient versus outpatient); 53

McLarenHealthPlan.org (888) 327-0671

Provider Manual

Section XIV

• Payment issues; • Clinical claim edits;or • Denial of a claim.

Appeal Response Time Frame The provider will receive a decision in writing, which may be either a letter or a new EOP. The response should come within 60 (calendar) days of MHP’s receipt of the written appeal request. MHP’s decision is final and binding for all products except Medicaid. The Claims Adjustment process is not available to a provider if the Appeal Process is used and the provider is not satisfied with the outcome.

Appeal Process Reminders The provider must have submitted a claim for the service in question, and/or received a denial or reduction in payment from MHP, before an appeal will be considered. A written request to MHP’s Appeals Department through completion of the PRA form and the attachment of a paper claim must be submitted to begin the appeal process. A cover letter outlining the reason and rationale for the appeals request must accompany the PRA. The written request should include any new information, such as: • Documentation from the medical record. • An explanation of payment. • Other applicable documentation supporting the request for appeal.

Appeals Process for Adverse Compliance Audit Findings As part of the MHP Compliance Program, routine auditing and monitoring as well as data mining activities are performed. Providers are notified that they are part of one of these activities at the conclusion of the audit and if there are any findings that result in either billing education, corrective action or recoupment of claims payments. Within 30 calendar days of the date written on the audit results notice, the provider must complete and submit an appeal with supporting documentation. The provider must attach a copy of the audit results notice letter. The right to appeal is forfeited if the provider does not submit a written request for an appeal within 30-day time frame and payment for amounts owed to MHP are due immediately upon expiration of the 30-day time period. Notwithstanding the foregoing, MHP may, in its sole discretion, offset against future claims. McLaren staff that did not participate in the audit or are not subordinates of those that conducted the audit will review the documentation submitted by the provider. MHP will make a decision on the appeal within 30 calendar days of its receipt of the appeal. MHP will provide a written decision to the provider. If MHP upholds the decision (in full or in part), the provider must remit payment of the amounts owed to 54

McLarenHealthPlan.org (888) 327-0671

Provider Manual

Section XIV

MHP immediately, but in no case later than 30 calendar days of the date of the letter. In cases of fraud, waste or abuse, MHP may offset claims immediately. For all other cases, if payment is not received within 30 days of the date on the letter, MHP will offset against future claims.

Medicaid Appeals Non-contracted hospitals providing services to MHP members through the MDHHS Hospital Access Agreement are eligible to request a Rapid Dispute Resolution Process in compliance with the Medicaid Provider Manual, after the hospital has first exhausted its efforts to achieve a resolution through MHP’s Administrative Appeals Process. Non-contracted hospitals that have not signed a Hospital Access Agreement, or non-contracted, nonhospital providers do not have access to the Rapid Dispute Resolution Process. These providers serving MHP Medicaid members are entitled to initiate a binding arbitration process, after the provider has first exhausted their efforts to achieve a resolution through MHP’s Administrative Appeals Process. To initiate binding arbitration, call MHP to obtain a list of arbitrators. Arbitrators are selected by the MDHHS. The decision of the arbitrator is final. If the arbitrator does not reverse the decision, the provider is responsible for the arbitrator’s charges. Providers, who are appealing a professional clinical care review, or a Credentialing or Recredentialing action taken by MHP’s Quality Improvement Committee, must pursue a different type of appeal, which is governed by separate policies. Call Customer Service for more information at (888) 327-0671. Providers can access the PRA form in Section XVIII in this manual or go to McLarenHealthPlan.org.

McLaren Advantage (HMO) Medicare Appeals Note: Appeals procedures are distinctly different for Medicaid and Medicare members. This section outlines the process for McLaren Advantage (HMO) Medicare appeals only.

Level 1 Appeal – Reconsideration A member starts the appeal process by making an appeal. It is called the first level of appeal of a Level 1 Appeal. The member contacts McLaren Advantage (HMO) and makes the appeal. If their health requires a quick response, they must ask for a fast appeal. To start an appeal, the member, their representative or in some cases their provider must contact McLaren Advantage (HMO). Appeal requests must be within 60 (calendar) days from the date on the written notice sent concerning a coverage decision. If the member wishes, their provider may give additional information to support the appeal. A standard appeal must be in writing and completed within 30 calendar days after being received by McLaren Advantage (HMO). A fast appeal is also called an expedited appeal. An expedited appeal can be a verbal or written request and must be completed within 72 hours after being received by McLaren Advantage (HMO).

McLarenHealthPlan.org (888) 327-0671

Provider Manual

Section XIV

Level 2: Independent Review Entity – IRE If McLaren Advantage (HMO) says no to the Level 1 Appeal, the case will automatically be sent on to the next level of the appeals process. During the Level 2 Appeal, the Independent Review Organization reviews the decision made during the first appeal. This organization decides whether the decision made should be changed. The Independent Review Organization is an outside independent organization that is hired by Medicare. This organization is not connected with McLaren Advantage (HMO) and it is not a government agency. This organization is a company chosen by Medicare to handle the job of being the Independent Review Organization. Medicare oversees its work. McLaren Advantage (HMO) will send information about the appeal to this organization. This information is called the “case file.” The member has the right to ask for a copy of the case file. The member has a right to give the Independent Review Organization additional information to support their appeal. Reviewers at the Independent Review Organization will take a careful look at all of the information related to the appeal. If there is a “fast” appeal at Level 1, there will also be a “fast” appeal at Level 2.

Level 3: Administrative Law Judge - ALJ The notice received from the Independent Review Organization will tell the member in writing if the case meets the requirements for continuing with the appeals process. For example, to continue and make another appeal at Level 3, the dollar value of the medical care coverage being requested must meet a certain minimum. If the dollar value of the coverage being requested is too low, the member cannot make another appeal, which means that the decision at Level 2 is final.

Level 4: The Medicare Appeals Council The Medicare Appeals Council will review the member’s appeal and give the member an answer. The Medicare Appeals Council works for the federal government. If the member’s Level 4 appeal is approved, or if the Medicare Appeals Council denies McLaren Advantage’s (HMO) request to review a favorable Level 3 appeal decision, the appeals process may or may not be over. McLaren Advantage (HMO) has the right to appeal a Level 4 decision that is favorable to the member. If McLaren Advantage (HMO) decides not to appeal the decision, McLaren Advantage (HMO) must authorize or provide the member with the service within 60 days after receiving the Medicare Appeals Council’s decision. If McLaren Advantage (HMO) decides to appeal the decision, McLaren Advantage will let the member know in writing. If the member’s Level 4 appeal is denied or if the Medicare Appeals Council denies the review request, the appeals process may or may not be over. If the member decides to accept this decision, the appeals process is over. If the member does not want to accept the decision, the member might be able to continue to the next level of the review process. If the Medicare Appeals Council says no to the member’s appeal, the notice the member receives will tell the member whether the rules allow the member to go on to a Level 5 appeal. If the rules allow the member to go on, the written notice will also tell the member who to contact and what to do next if the member chooses to continue with the next level of review.

XV - Fraud, Waste and Abuse Health care fraud and abuse is both a state and federal offense. The HIPAA Act of 1996 indicates a dishonest provider or member is subject to fines or imprisonment of not more than ten years, or both. MHP asks that providers and members partner with us to identify and eliminate fraud, waste and abuse. Fraud is intentional deception or misrepresentation made by a person with the knowledge that the deception could result in some unauthorized benefit to him or some other person. It includes any act that constitutes fraud under applicable federal and state law (42 CFR § 455.2). Waste is the overuse of services or other practices that directly or indirectly, result in unnecessary costs. Waste is generally not considered to be caused by criminally negligent actions, but rather the misuse of resources. Abuse is provider practices that are inconsistent with sound fiscal, business or medical practices and result in an unnecessary cost to the Medicaid program, or commercial health care program, or in reimbursement for services that are not medically necessary or that fail to meet professionally recognized standards for health care. It also includes recipient practices that result in unnecessary cost to the Medicaid program (42 CFR § 455.2), or commercial health care program. Examples of fraud,waste and abuse include, but are not limited to: • Billing more than once for the same service • Billing for services never performed or provided • Performing inappropriate or unnecessary services • Providing lower cost or used equipment and billing for higher cost or new equipment • Using someone else’s identity • Altering or falsifying pharmacy prescriptions

Section XVI

“MHP must support a members right to make decisions about their care” Members have the right to know their treatment options and participate in decisions about their health care. Members have the right to get full information from their doctors and other health care providers when they go for medical care. Providers must explain a members medical condition and their treatment choices in a way they can understand. Members also have the right to participate fully in decisions about their health care. To help members make decisions with their doctors about what treatment is best; their rights include the following: • To know about all choices. This means that they have the right to be told about all of the treatment options that are recommended for their condition, no matter the cost or whether they are covered by MHP. It also includes being told about programs our Plan offers to help members manage their medications and use drugs safely. • To know about the risks. They have the right to be told about any risks involved in their care. They must be told in advance if any proposed medical care or treatment is part of a research experiment. They always have the choice to refuse any experimental treatments. • The right to say “no.” They have the right to refuse any recommended treatment. This includes the right to leave a hospital or other medical facility, even if the doctor advises them not to leave. They also have the right to stop taking their medication. Of course, if they refuse treatment or stop taking medication, they accept full responsibility for what happens to their body as a result. • To receive an explanation if denied coverage for care. Members have the right to receive an explanation from MHP if a provider has denied care that they believe they should receive. To receive this explanation, members will need to ask MHP for a coverage decision. The Evidence of Coverage tells how to ask the Plan for a coverage decision. Members have the right to give instructions about what is to be done if they are not able to make medical decisions for themselves. Sometimes people become unable to make health care decisions for themselves due to accidents or serious illness. Members have the right to say what they want to happen if they are in this situation. This means they can: • Fill out a written form to give someone the legal authority to make medical decisions for them if they ever become unable to make decisions for themselves. • Give doctors written instructions about how they want them to handle medical care if a member become unable to make decisions for themselves. The legal documents that can be used to give directions in advance in these situations are called “advance directives.” There are different types of advance directives and different names for them. Documents called “living will” and “power of attorney for health care” are examples of advance directives. If a member wants to use an “advance directive” to give instructions, here is what to do: • Get the form. If a member wants to have an advance directive, they can get a form from a lawyer, a social worker or an office supply stores. Members can sometimes get advance directive forms from organizations that give people information about Medicare. • Fill it out and sign it. Regardless of where a member obtains this form, keep in mind that it is a legal document. Members should consider having a lawyer to help prepare it. 65

Provider Manual

Section XVI

• Give copies to appropriate people. Members should give a copy of the form to their doctor and to the person named on the form as the one to make decisions for the member. The member may want to give copies to close friends or family members as well. Be sure to keep a copy at home. If a member knows ahead of time they are going to be hospitalized, and have signed an advance directive, they should take a copy with them to the hospital: • If a member is admitted to the hospital, they will ask whether the member has signed an advance directive form and whether they have it with them. • If they have not signed an advance directive form, the hospital has forms available and will ask if they want to sign one. Remember, it is their choice whether they want to fill out an advance directive (including whether they want to sign one if they are in the hospital). According to law, no one can deny them care or discriminate against them based on whether or not they have signed an advance directive.

“What if the instructions are not followed?” If a member has signed an advance directive, and they believe that a doctor or hospital hasn’t followed the instructions in it, they may file a complaint with the Michigan Bureau of Health Professions.

“Members have the right to make complaints and to ask MHP to reconsider decisions we have made” If a member has any problems or concerns about their covered services or care, the Evidence of Coverage tells what they can do. It gives the details about how to deal with all types of problems and complaints. As explained in the Evidence of Coverage, what they need to do to follow up on a problem or concern depends on the situation. They might need to ask our Plan to make a coverage decision for they, make an appeal to us to change a coverage decision, or make a complaint. Whatever they do — ask for a coverage decision, make an appeal or make a complaint — MHP is required to treat them fairly. They have the right to get a summary of information about the appeals and complaints that other members have filed against our Plan in the past. To get this information, please call Member Services.

“What can they do if they think they are being treated unfairly or their rights are not being respected?” If it is about discrimination, call the Office for Civil Rights. If they think they have been treated unfairly or their rights have not been respected due to their race, disability, religion, sex, health, ethnicity, creed (beliefs), age or national origin, they should call the Department of Health and Human Services’ (DHHS) Office for Civil Rights at (800) 368-1019 or TTY (800) 537-7697 or call their local Office for Civil Rights.

“Is it about something else?” If they think they have been treated unfairly or their rights have not been respected, and it’s not about discrimination, they can get help dealing with the problem they are having: 66

We’ll help them with it. • Tell their doctor and other health care providers that they are enrolled in our plan. Show their plan membership card and Medicaid card whenever they get medical care or Part D prescription drugs. • Help their doctors and other providers help they by giving them information, asking questions and following through on their care.

• To help their doctors and other health providers give them the best care, learn as much as they are able to about their health problems and give them the information they need about the members health. Follow the treatment plans and instructions that they and their doctors agree upon. • If they have any questions, be sure to ask. Their doctors and other health care providers are supposed to explain things in a way they can understand. If they ask a question and they don’t understand the answer they are given, ask again. • Be considerate. We expect all our members to respect the rights of other patients. We also expect they to act in a way that helps the smooth running of their doctor’s office, hospitals and other offices. • Pay what they owe. As a plan Member, they are responsible for these payments: • In order to be eligible for our Plan, they must maintain their eligibility for Medicare Part A and Part B. For that reason, some Plan members must pay a premium for Medicare Part A, and most plan members must pay a premium for Medicare Part B to remain a Member of the Plan. • For some of their medical services or drugs covered by the Plan, they must pay their share of the cost when they get the service or drug. This will be a copayment (a fixed amount) or coinsurance (a percentage of the total cost). The Evidence of Coverage tells what they must pay for their medical services. The Evidence of Coverage tells what they must pay for their Part D prescription drugs. • If they get any medical services or drugs that are not covered by our Plan or by other insurance they may have, they must pay the full cost. • Tell us if they move. If they are going to move, it’s important to tell us right away by calling Customer Service. • If they move outside of our Plan service area, they cannot remain a Member of our Plan. We can help they figure out whether they are moving outside our service area. If they are leaving our service area, we can let they know if we have a Plan in their new area. • If they move within our service area, we still need to know so we can keep their membership record up-to-date and know how to contact they. • Call Customer Service for help if they have questions or concerns. We also welcome any suggestions they may have for improving our Plan. • Phone numbers and calling hours for Customer Service are on the front page of the Evidence of Coverage. • For more information on how to reach us, including our mailing address, please see the Evidence of Coverage.

Emergency and Urgent Care Guidelines Members must contact their PCP prior to an Urgent Care or Emergency Department (ED) visit unless the member has what he or she believes to be a life-threatening emergency.

Emergency Care

Emergency care is defined as a sudden and/or unexpected sickness or injury that could result in a serious problem or death, if not treated right away. Examples of emergency conditions include:

• Serious bleeding • Loss of consciousness • Convulsions or seizures • Severe breathing problems If an ED visit is required, authorization is not needed, but the PCP should alert the hospital of the member’s pending arrival. Whenever possible, the PCP should serve as the admitting physician or consult with the ED physician to promote the quality and continuity of care delivered to the member.

Urgent Care

Urgent health problems are not life threatening, but they may require immediate attention. Members are encouraged to contact their PCP if they experience a health problem they believe requires immediate attention. Examples of common urgent health problems include:

• Severe sore throat • Sprains • Severe headache • Earache If an urgent care visit is needed, authorization is not needed. A PCP or covering physician must be available 24 hours a day/7 days a week to coordinate MHP member’s access to care.

Emergency Care Reminders

If the member feels he or she has an emergent medical condition and does not have time to call the PCP, he or she is instructed to go to a MHP participating hospital emergency department, the nearest ED or call 911. Members who present to an ED are instructed to identify themselves as MHP members and present their MHP member identification card. Members are encouraged to notify their PCP within 24 hours, or the next business day, of an ED visit to ensure that appropriate and immediate follow-up care may be arranged. Please contact Medical Management at (888) 327-0671 or (810) 733-9522 for more details.

Referral Guidelines Provider Referral Form

When a member needs care that the PCP cannot provide, a Provider Referral Form needs to be completed. A completed Provider Referral Form and preauthorization are required for: • Any care that is referred to an Out-of-Network (non-contracted) physician. • Any service listed on the back of the Provider Referral Form (see Section XVIII Forms Section). • Certain injections (please call Medical Management for clarification). Preauthorization requests are subject to a medical review by MHP and may require additional information and/or documentation before a service can be approved.

When completing the Provider Referral Form: • PCP has the option of requesting an office consult with or without follow up visits. • PCP must contact MHP to add any testing, outpatient procedures, or additional consults to other specialists, to the original office consult referral. • Referrals are valid for the duration of the episode of care, not to exceed one year. • A new referral form will be required if the episode of care exceeds one year. • The Provider Referral Form must be completed appropriately or it will be returned to the requesting office and will not be processed by MHP.

Authorization Number • The authorization number is located in the body of the Authorization Request Response Form. • For preauthorization: after medical review occurs, the referral decision will be returned as either authorized, redirected, pended or not authorized.

Referral Time and Scope • Referrals are valid for the episode of care, but not to exceed one year. • The PCP can request an “Office Consult”, with or without follow up visits. • A contact must be made to MHP by the specialist or PCP to add services to the original referral. • Any addition to an original referral that is to an Out-of-Network provider requires preauthorization, without exception. • Whenever possible, the treatment plan should be delivered by the PCP in conjunction with the specialist. • Each referral is for the testing and the treatment of the current diagnosis and said diagnosis. • The referral is invalid if the member is not eligible. The Provider Referral Form Request for Preauthorization may be completed and submitted electronically, including any clinical attachments, by using the form available on the MHP website, McLarenHealthPlan.org, under the Provider tab. Please call Medical Management at (888) 327-0671 with questions about our referral process. 94

Anesthesia Billing for Anesthesia Services McLaren Health Plan requires providers to bill anesthesia services with the total number of minutes provided. The number of minutes is to be recorded in the units field. Do not add the base number of units for the procedure, as that is automatically added by McLaren Health Plan’s claim system. Modifiers are required in order to administer payment appropriately. Failure to provide the modifier will result in the claim being denied. Secondary modifiers should also be billed, as applicable.

Payment Calculation For payment purposes, McLaren Health Plan calculates the units by dividing the actual minutes by 15 and rounding to the nearest full unit. Anesthesia services are based on the following calculation:

Section XIX

Reference Lab Billing Requirements As laboratory testing continues to become increasingly specialized, hospital laboratories may find it necessary to refer specimens to reference laboratories for testing if they lack the capability to process the specimens in-house. This information pertains to covered laboratory procedures performed by reference laboratories that are under contractual arrangements with McLaren Health Plan contracted Hospitals. This would include any laboratory procedure covered by CPT codes 80000 – 89999, or any applicable HCPCS codes. Definitions of reference and referring laboratories are as follows: • Reference laboratory – A laboratory that receives a specimen from another, referring laboratory for testing and that actually performs the test. • Referring laboratory – A laboratory that receives a specimen to be tested and that refers the specimen to another laboratory for performance of the laboratory test. Following Medicare and Medicaid guidelines and applicable State and Federal laws, in situations where a contracted hospital laboratory must refer a specimen to a reference laboratory, the contracted laboratory will be allowed to bill MHP for the services provided by the reference laboratory under the following conditions: • The reference laboratory holds the required Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) certification and State licensure, if required, to perform the test; • The contracted hospital laboratory and the reference laboratory have a contractual agreement to provide such services with the hospital laboratory responsible for reimbursing the reference laboratory for the services; and • If the service requires pre-authorization, the contracted hospital laboratory must request and receive preauthorization from MHP for the services to be performed by the reference laboratory. The preauthorization number must be included on the claim. For a list of laboratory services that require preauthorization, please visit McLarenHealthPlan.org. Follow the links to Providers/Referrals and Requests for Preauthorization/Preauthorization Program Guidelines. MHP Contracted Hospitals who are the JVHL Provider network will continue to submit all laboratory claims through their JVHL agreement.
