    CDA disappointed with Supreme Court Medicaid ruling

    The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that providers cannot sue states or state officials in an effort to increase Medicaid reimbursement rates. In a 5-to-4 decision, justices indicated that complaints about low reimbursement rates should instead be filed with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the federal agency that oversees the Medicaid program.

    The ruling, which stems from the Idaho case Armstrong v. Exceptional Child Center Inc., is a blow to health care providers who have sought injunctive relief to reimbursement cuts implemented by states. Noting that the decision leaves providers without sufficient remedies to resolve reimbursement issues, dissenting justices stated, “The Court’s error today has very real consequences.”

    Dealing with refund demands from dental plans

    By Greg Alterton, CDA Dental Benefit Plan Specialist

    If we were to list the top five payment dispute issues CDA’s Practice Support hears about, refund demands from dental plans for previously paid claims would rank up there at the top.

    In responding to a refund demand, it should be remembered that as with any other type of payment dispute, the resolution with the dental plans doesn’t need to be complicated. When it can be shown that a disputed claim refund is contrary to the plan’s schedule of benefits and allowable fees, or contrary to its payment policies on a particular procedure, the issue can usually be resolved in a timely manner and in the dentist’s favor.
