U6 Modifier Update

August 24, 2018: Attention Outpatient Hospital Providers: Update to BBA posted April 13, 2018: MDHHS continues to reject claims with adjustment reason code A8 when reporting drugs that are acquired through the 340B program with the accompanying required U6 modifier. The affected codes (J7606, J7608, J7611, J7612, J7613, J7620, J7644, J7676, and J7682) have assigned status indicators M on Medicare’s Addendum B. This was projected to be fixed with our April quarterly updates that took place June 22, 2018 and this did not occur as planned. Additional communication will be issued when the issue is resolved.
