BUFFALO, N.Y. – NCART has developed a survey for suppliers and manufacturers to share information on reduced access to complex rehab technology at the hands of Medicaid managed care organizations. NCART seeks information where a Medicaid MCO has either inappropriately denied coverage of an item or established an inadequate payment amount for the item. The survey is part of a larger effort by NCART to develop a network of legal advocates and agencies to bring focus to MCO coverage and payment problems for complex rehab. “Plans include creating an online forum paired with relevant information and tools to facilitate discussions to ensure compliance with related federal and state statutes,” it said in a bulletin.
