In The News: Medicaid/CHIP Provider Relief Fund

HHS is targeting funds to Medicaid and safety net providers. Application deadline July 20th.

Medicaid CHIP Provider Relief Fund

HHS expects to distribute $15 billion to eligible Medicaid/CHIP programs or Medicaid Managed Care plans. If you did not received payment from the $50 billion General Distribution and you have either directly billed your state Medicaid/CHIP programs or Medicaid Managed Care plans for healthcare-related services, you could be eligible.

$15 billion to eligible Medicaid/CHIP programs or Medicaid Managed Care plans.

Early on much of the aid that was released was distributed largely based on a provider’s revenue from Medicare and private insurance. 

This shortchanged providers with high shares of Medicaid and uninsured patients who are disproportionately low-income, the populations hardest hit by the pandemic. Just recently, HHS sought to correct the problem by targeting some funds to Medicaid and safety net providers.

Credential Type

Do little mistakes cause big delays in payments?

Credential Type

OnTarget’s Credential Type functionality is an easy-to-use solution, designed to ensure you and your 
staff always document against correct service codes.

Easier decisions, less clicks, more time to focus on what’s important. And ensure you are billing the correct service code based on the employee’s credentialing. 

You can create credential types based on:

  • Education level
  • Type of service performed
  • Any other grouping as needed to control service selection

Watch our video to learn more about Credential Types and how to limit which services staff can write notes for in the system.

OnTarget contains the functionality allowing you to associate employees with custom credential types to limit which services they are able write notes for in the system.

There is no limit on the types or number of services you can assign each credential type. An employee can only be assigned one credential type.

OnTarget’s ePrescribe is a comprehensive, easy-to-use solution for electronic prescribing, designed to ensure you and your service recipients are covered every step of the way. Save time and eliminate phone calls for you and your staff with electronic prescribing.

ePrescribe with OnTarget

Are you adhering to state mandates requiring controlled substances to be prescribed electronically??

Electronic prescribing for controlled substances (EPCS) has gained popularity in recent months as a way to better track opioid use and reduce fraud and misuse. Many states have already implemented their own EPCS mandates, but the federal government and even private companies also have gotten involved. Following the federal mandate, many states have put forth legislations with similar laws. New York, for example, was the first state to mandate EPCS back in 2016. Today, 21 states have an EPCS mandate in place. An additional 17 states have future effective dates and 5 have proposed EPCS legislations. 

If you are already ePrescribing, are your prescribers leveraging our newer functionality that shows bulk refill request and pending scripts? See video below for info.

Make it easy for your MD’s and NP’s to:
