How this impacts providers: For Fee-for-Service claims, providers should continue to bill using their normal billing process. Individual providers require no additional action in terms on how to submit claims. TCHP is actively working to update our system. As a reminder, TCHP has 60 days to implement and reprocess claims associated with the fee schedule updates according to the Uniform Managed Care Terms and Conditions (UMCC). Providers do not need to appeal claims, as we will automatically reprocess claims once the fee schedule updates have taken place.
Next step for Providers: Providers should review the adopted payment rates and be on the lookout for additional communication once the new rates have been applied to the TCHP claims processing system.
