Kentucky Medicaid asks providers to report missed or canceled appointments
(April 26, 2021)
KYHealthNet now has a panel for entering missed and canceled appointments. The commonwealth recognizes when a member misses an appointment or cancels with little notice this is a loss of revenue for your organization and denies another member access to quicker service. Please take a few seconds to provide us with information about missed or canceled appointments so we can act to reduce those cases. On the new system panel, enter information when a patient misses or cancels a scheduled appointment(s). If you have any questions about how to enter information on this new panel, please see the
User Guide and Video.
Thank you in advance for contributing to this effort.
