Medicare

With more and more older adults finding health care outside of the hospital setting, knowing as much as possible about Medicare is more important than ever. An in-depth knowledge helps you serve your patients and make sure you’re getting the Medicare funds you need.

Illinois Medicaid Transition

As part of the new Medicaid MCO contract, the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services will be using IMPACT information to credential providers during the Medicaid provider enrollment and update process. This will replace the prior credentialing required by each Medicaid Managed Care Plan in Illinois. You may have already noticed a new question during the IMPACT enrollment of a provider. The new question is located on the enrollment checklist inquiring the status of the provider’s liability insurance and policy coverage limit insurance. The Bureau of Primary Health Care suggests deemed providers respond to the question as follows:

 

Name of Insurer:
Health Resources and Service Administration (HRSA)
5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD 20852

 

Coverage Amount:
