Alabama Medicaid

Monday, April 19, 2021
ATTENTION ACHN Providers: The Agency needs to make a modification to the April 2021 Provider Profiler Cost Effectiveness Scorecard. The Cost Effectiveness scores were calculated using the quarter's attributed recipients' claims data from 01/01/2020 -12/31/2020. We apologize for any inconvenience.

CMS discontinued the RY2020 Payment Error Rate Measurement (PERM) Audit for Medicaid and CHIP due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and will not report state specific errors for this cycle. Providers may close any pending requests for medical records received from NCI AdvanceMed, Inc.

Attention ACHN Providers: Changes have been made to the bonus payment distribution. See the "Changes to the Alabama Coordinated Health Network (ACHN) Bonus Payment Distribution" ALERT on the Medicaid website for more details.

All previously published expiration dates related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) emergency are once again extended by the Alabama Medicaid Agency. The new expiration date is the earlier of May 31, 2021, the conclusion of the COVID-19 National emergency, or any expiration date noticed by the Alabama Medicaid Agency through a subsequent ALERT. A listing of previous Provider ALERTs and notices related to the health emergency is available by selecting the Agency's COVID-19 page in the bottom section:
