Update: Outpatient Hospital Providers

April 13, 2018: Attention Outpatient Hospital providers: Update to BBA posted January 18, 2018: The CHAMPS system was updated to fix claims that were being denied with claim adjustment reason code A8 that have services with status indicators K or G on Medicare’s addendum B and the supporting payable procedure is on MDHHS wrap-around list with an assigned MDHHS status indicator. Providers will see claims with dates of service 1/01/2018 adjudicate appropriately. There are some providers that will continue to see denials for claims with dates of service prior to January 1, 2018. MDHHS will contact those affected providers directly with additional information and is currently working to correct the system.
