Claims payment exceptions process — Hurricane Ian
Simply Healthcare Plans, Inc. has implemented a claims payment exceptions process for the reimbursement of services provided in good faith to eligible Florida Medicaid recipients in FEMA designated counties during the disaster grace period. The Agency for Health Care Administration defines the disaster grace period for Hurricane Ian as September 29, 2022, through November 30, 2022. This claims payment exceptions process includes services that:
- Normally would have required a prior authorization.
- Were rendered by a non-participating or out-of-state provider without a Florida Medicaid provider number.
- Exceeded coverage limits.
Providers who wish to receive payment for services rendered during and outside of the disaster grace period are required to be enrolled with Florida Medicaid or provisionally enrolled with Florida Medicaid prior to submitting claims.
