Important Reminders on Ohio Medicaid Claim Submissions


The Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) recently provided the following update on claims submissions for all Ohio physician practices:

As part of Ohio Department of Medicaid's (ODM) comprehensive effort to modernize management information systems, providers have experienced changes in how they submit and access claims. We know this is a big change and we appreciate your partnership. ODM would like to give providers some important reminders and clarification on two common questions.

Where do I submit a crossover claim? 

If Medicare has paid their portion of a claim but you do not receive ODM payment in the following ninety days, you must directly submit a corresponding crossover claim to ODM. You have the option to submit the crossover claim through the Provider Network Management (PNM) module via a link to Medicaid Information Technology System (MITS) or through a trading partner to the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI).

This direction is aligned with the Ohio Administrative Code 5610-1-05, “Medicaid coordination of benefits with the Medicare program (Title XVIII).” 

Where do I edit fee-for-service, managed care, or crossover claims?

Submit claim edits, including adjustments and voids, using the same method as the original claim submission. For example, if you submit claims through a trading partner via the EDI you should only edit claims via the EDI. If you submit claims through the PNM module via a link to MITS, you should only edit the claim in the PNM. 

If you have further questions:

Additional information on the adjudication process can be found on our updated Claims and Prior Authorization Submission Frequently Asked Questions.
