AIDS Waiver Rate Update: Non-Emergency Medical Transportation HCPCS Code T2003

January 8, 2020

Background: Providers have been told alternately that the rate for HCPCS code T2003 (non-emergency medical transportation; encounter/trip) is either $40 or $100.

Effective retroactively for dates of service on or after July 1, 2017, this service is subject to a monthly cap rate per client of up to $100. This rate for code T2003 is exclusive to AIDS Medi-Cal Waiver Program services.

An Erroneous Payment Correction (EPC) will be implemented to reprocess affected claims. No action is required of providers.

Updated manual pages reflecting this change will be released in a future Medi-Cal Update.
