Mabel McGlothlen, LME System Performance Team Leader, DMH/DD/SAS, and Kathy Nichols, Lead Waiver Program Manager, Contracts Section, DMA Provider Enrollment The purpose of this bulletin is to inform that providers are now able to update their provider record in NCTracks via the managed change request process that can be accessed through the provider portal. Please encourage all providers in your network to keep their records up to date. This will assist in ensuring accurate data and will allow for more seamless encounter data transmission. LME-MCOs will be able to receive updates to the provider file via the weekly Global Provider File (GPF) interface transmission from NCTracks.

Mabel McGlothlen, LME System Performance Team Leader, DMH/DD/SAS, and Kathy Nichols, Lead Waiver Program Manager, Contracts Section, DMA Subject: Taxonomy The purpose of this bulletin is to outline the process for how to use the updated taxonomy list. During our recent Core Team calls, we discussed issues with taxonomies and their impact on denied claims (this applies to Medicaid Encounter claims, not claims where DMH/DD/SAS would be the payer). To address this issue, your agency was asked to submit a list of the current taxonomies. Staff at DMA then reviewed those taxonomies and provided a list of taxonomies cross-walked with those in the NCTracks system that should not deny claims. The compiled list is not expected to be a comprehensive list of taxonomies that would not be accepted but a stepping stone toward getting a greater proportion of encounter claims to process to acceptance. This clarification comes as a result of the Core Team discussions and is intended to help inform LME-MCO staff how they should use the taxonomy crosswalk list. Once LME-MCOs modify their systems to stop submitting codes not accepted by NCTracks, DMA will reprocess these claims that were previously denied. When the claims are reprocessed, NCTracks will replace the disallowed taxonomy with the cross-walked taxonomy. Where the old taxonomy cross-walks to "exclude," the claim would be denied. In order to streamline this process, LME-MCOs shall: 1) Change your claims processing systems to disallow all the taxonomies for Medicaid
reimbursement that were on the list and provide DMA a date when the change will be
implemented into your system
.
 This is an important step that will help ensure that the system is in line with that of NCTracks when it comes to provider taxonomies.  Presumably, the provider would receive an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) outlining the reason An Equal Opportunity / Affirmative Action Employer Page 2 of 2 Re: Taxonomy January 9, 2015 2) Work with any providers using the disallowed taxonomies to identify an NCTracks accepted
taxonomy that providers can bill.
 The LME-MCO should instruct their providers to log on to the NCTracks Provider Portal to verify their information including their taxonomy code(s).  If any of their information in NCTracks needs to be updated, they need to fill out a Managed Change Request (MCR) while in the NCTracks Provider Portal, then notify the LME-MCO of the changes.  The LME-MCOs should reinforce to their contract providers that the providers are now responsible for maintaining and updating their information in NCTracks, as well as reporting changes to the LMC-MCO. 3) Educate and work with providers to ensure that what is submitted is both legitimate and accepted
by NCTracks.
LME-MCOs are not being asked to alter any claims information that is sent to them, but might need to
assist the provider to ensure that they have entered legitimate claims that NCTracks will accept. For
example, 103TA0400X is not accepted but 103T00000X is sufficient. Both are taxonomies for
Psychologists, but the one that NCTracks does not accept is more specific. As another example,
101YP1600X is Pastoral Counselor and there could possibly be no other taxonomies that would fit that
provider. If that is the case, then DMA will not pay for service for such a provider. For one last
example, 208M00000X is a Hospitalist. In the crosswalk, DMA listed 208000000X, which is
Pediatrics. This does not mean that all Hospitalists should be enrolled under the Pediatrics taxonomy.
Rather, the provider should see if there is an appropriate taxonomy that is in the list that NCTracks
approves.

Mabel McGlothlen, LME System Performance Team Leader, DMH/DD/SAS, and Kathy Nichols, Lead Waiver Program Manager, Contracts Section, DMA Associate Level Licensed Providers: Direct Enrollment
The purpose of this bulletin is to notify associate level licensed providers that they must directly enroll by June
30, 2015 to provide Medicaid and state funded outpatient behavioral health services.
Associate level licensed providers must apply and enroll through the LME-MCO with which they wish to
contract. Effective July 1, 2015, if the associate level licensed provider wishes to provide services to Medicaid
beneficiaries age 0 to 3, Health Choice beneficiaries, or legal aliens, the associate level professional must enroll
with DMA by contacting Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC).
The associate level licensed provider will need to be enrolled with both DMA (through CSC) and the LME-
MCO if they wish to provide services to multiple populations.
 The Division of Public Health provides services to individuals who are age 0-3 and are not Medicaid or Health Choice eligible.  DMH/DD/SAS provides services to individuals who have had their third birthday and older. Associate level licensed providers enrolling with DMA (through CSC) or the LME-MCO will enroll under the taxonomy code of their respective profession. For example, the Associate Level Licensed Clinical Social Worker will enroll under the taxonomy code for a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. An Equal Opportunity / Affirmative Action Employer Re: Associate Level Licensed Providers: Direct Enrollment January 9, 2015 For claims submitted through NC Tracks, the rate for the associate level licensed provider is the same as the rate for their fully licensed counterpart. However, LME-MCOs have the ability to set their own rates for services. Therefore, associate level licensed providers should contact the LME-MCO for information regarding rates. Associate level licensed providers will need to obtain their own National Provider Identifier (NPI) number if they do not have one. To apply for an NPI number, please see the instructions on the following website  Associate level licensed providers may contact CSC (1-800-688-6696) with questions regarding enrollment with DMA.  Associate level licensed providers should contact their LME-MCO regarding enrollment. As outlined in section 6.2 of the outpatient Clinical Coverage Policy 8C, associate level licensed providers are allowed to bill "incident-to" their supervising physician or bill through the LME-MCO until the associate level licensed provider is able to directly enroll with the LME-MCO. The policy states that when the associate level licensed provider is able to direct enroll, then DMA will discontinue the associate level license provider "incident to" policy. The "incident to" policy change will not impact providers receiving state-funded reimbursement as DMH/DD/SAS does not support "incident to" billing. Associate level licensed providers will be able to continue billing "incident to" their supervising physician for Medicaid or bill HCPCS codes through a willing LME-MCO for Medicaid and/or state-funded behavioral health outpatient services until they have completed direct enrollment, or until June 30, 2015, whichever comes first. Effective July 1, 2015: 1. DMA will change the outpatient Clinical Coverage Policy 8C and remove the section on "incident to" billing for associate level licensed providers as well as remove the section allowing associate licensed level providers to bill HCPCS codes (H0001, H0004 + modifiers, H0005 and H0031) through the LME-MCO. 2. DMH/DD/SAS will also eliminate HCPCS code billing through the LME-MCO for state-funded outpatient services at the same time.
All associate level licensed providers are required to have supervision from a supervisor approved by their
licensing board. This supervision is critical to ensuring quality of services for beneficiaries being served by
associate level licensed providers. Each associate level licensed provider is required to ensure that they meet the
supervision requirements set forth by their respective licensing board.
The links to the rules pertaining to the respective board's supervision requirements found in the North Carolina
Administrative Code are as follows:

The purpose of this bulletin is to describe some options to address the assessment and discharge planning
functions necessary in a hospital ED environment without utilizing mobile crisis management:
1. Contract with independent practitioner (LCSW, LPC, Psychologist) to offer outpatient evaluations and discharge on an on-call basis in the ED. 2. Embed an administrative-level individual (or place them on-call to work with ED without necessarily having to be IN the ED) to coordinate discharge and follow-up to ensure aftercare is received. For example, non-clinical care coordination staff could make phone calls to help arrange aftercare transportation and communicate with existing providers for the individual being discharged from the ED. 3. Use identified STR staff specifically for this purpose; it might work well for an ED that has Please note that section 6.13 of the LME MCO contract states: PIHP shall coordinate and monitor Behavioral Health hospital and institutional admissions and discharges, including discharge planning. An alternative service definition may also be an option that can be discussed with DMA.

N.C. Medicaid and N.C. Health Choice Preferred Drug List Changes
Effective with an estimated date of service of January 1, 2015, the N.C. Division of Medical Assistance (DMA) will
make changes to the N.C. Medicaid and N.C. Health Choice (NCHC) Preferred Drug List (PDL). It is the
expectation of Partners Behavioral Health Management that providers are aware of the importance of
prescribers prescribing medications that are covered by a patient's insurance, in an effort to reduce risk of the
patient not filling/taking medication because they cannot afford it and to increase medication adherence. The
following list is available in the December 2014 Medicaid Bulletin available using the following link:

Below are highlights of some of the changes that will occur.  The prior authorization criteria will be removed from the leukotriene class  New classes are being added: o Under TOPICAL, Imidazoquinolinamines o Under MISCELLANEOUS, Epinephrine, Self-Injected; Estrogen Agents, Vaginal Preparations; Glucocorticoid Steroids, Oral  Some mental health pharmaceuticals will have non-preferred options for the first time.

Invigorating investors' rights against market abuse

Common Origins, Different Destinies: Investors' Rights against Market Manipulation in the U.K., Australia and Singapore Abstract The regulatory rules against manipulation in the U.K., Australia and Singapore have moved steadily toward formulations that ease the burdens of prosecution. Yet, the drive toward stronger regulatory protections against market manipulation does not necessarily translate into more robust private rights of action. This article explores the different degrees to which these three jurisdictions have gone beyond regulatory protection and the common law to confer on investors statutory rights to compensation for market manipulation.
