The new professional fee schedule format lists procedure codes, descriptions, and fee screens. The modifier and age range fields are applicable to the fee screen and do not reflect coverage parameters.  For additional pertinent coverage parameters, such as documentation and billing indicators, refer to the Medicaid Code and Rate Reference tool, which is accessible via the External Links menu within CHAMPS.  Medicaid Code and Rate Reference is an online code inquiry system that provides real-time information for the following:

  • Age restrictions,
  • Diagnoses allowable for Ambulance,
  • Documentation requirements,
  • Frequency limitations,
  • Hospital discharge – Bypass PA
  • NDC information,
  • Prior authorizations and medical conditions that may bypass these requirements,
  • Rate information,
  • Required modifiers,
  • Supplies/DME – per diem, and
  • Tooth number and surface requirements.
