In a network notification dated December 31, 2015, CareSource indicated that upcoming changes to Medicaid claim submissions with EPSDT referral indicators would go into effect on claims received after January 31, 2016.
However, in order to ensure all health partners have ample time to understand and implement any necessary changes in claim submission guidelines, we are extending the deadline. We will announce the new effective date in a future network notification. Please check the Ohio Medicaid Updates/Announcements webpage frequently for educational resources on EPSDT claim guidelines.
