System Update to Reimburse CHDP Services Rendered With Aid Code 8E

September 17, 2014

Child Health and Disability Prevention (CHDP) services rendered to Medi-Cal beneficiaries assigned aid code 8E who are 19 through 20 years, 11 months of age are reimbursable. The system has been updated to correct an erroneous claim denial when billing with aid code 8E on a Confidential Screening/Billing Report (PM-160) claim form for CHDP health assessments and immunizations rendered to beneficiaries 19 through 20 years, 11 months of age.

Providers who received a “Recipient Aid Code/Age Not Eligible” message for claims billed with dates of service on or after January 1, 2014, will need to resubmit the denied claims for reprocessing beginning September 16, 2014.
