- RID numbers change for newly eligible members
As the Indiana FSSA moves to a new eligibility system, a new numbering sequence is being used for member identification numbers (RIDs). Beginning July 17, 2016, RIDs issued to newly eligible members include a “120” prefix rather than a “100” prefix. New RIDs continue to follow the same 12-digit format of 12xxxxxxxx99. All previously assigned "100" RIDs remain intact. Presumptive Eligibility RIDs are also unaffected.
- Indiana EHR MAPIR upgraded, new user guides available
Indiana Medicaid's Electronic Health Records (EHR) Medical Assistance Provider Incentive Repository (MAPIR) has been upgraded and is now accepting Program Year 2015 Meaningful Use (MU) attestations for eligible professionals (EPs). In addition, new EHR user guides are now available.
- PE approval letters serve as proof of temporary coverage
The State is aware that some members are presenting for pharmacy and other services before their PE status is visible to providers in the IHCP Eligibility Verification System or in the MCEs’ pharmacy benefits manager (PBM) systems. Please be aware that an original PE approval letter is sufficient to validate temporary coverage even if the member is not listed in the appropriate eligibility system.
