Last year, Gov. Steve Beshear directed the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) to increase education efforts to improve the continued implementation of Medicaid managed care. Due to the success of last year's forums, CHFS, in partnership with the Medicaid managed care organizations (MCO), is once again conducting forums across Kentucky during the months of August and September.
These forums are designed for Medicaid health care providers who have contracts with the MCOs. Providers can learn more about and discuss proper billing, prior authorizations, prompt pay, appeals processes and other issues related to continued implementation of managed care. Senior staff from each of the MCOs, the Department of Insurance, the Office of Inspector General, DMS, the Department for Public Health, the Department for Behavioral Health, Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities and the Office of the Secretary will be in attendance.
