Medicaid Primary Care Incentive Payment Attestation: Deadline Extended to April 30th

The Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services (DMAHS) confirmed that all physicians who qualify for the ACA enhanced payments to Medicaid primary care providers must complete an attestation form indicating board certification status in a primary care specialty. The deadline for submission of the ACA Self-Attestation Form for traditional fee-for-service Medicaid has been extended to April 30, 2013.

Physicians must submit the attestation by April 30th in order to be eligible for retroactive incentive payments going back to January 1, 2013. Physicians who submit the attestation after April 30th will receive incentive payments starting from the first day of the month the attestation was submitted. For example, if the attestation is submitted on July 17, 2013, then the incentive payments will apply to claims starting July 1st. An original signature is required; therefore the form must be mailed to: Molina Medicaid Solutions, P.O. Box 4804, Trenton, NJ 08650. Please note: the fee-for-service deadline does not apply to physicians in the MCOs; a deadline will be provided in a letter to the physician from the MCO.
