Friday, February 29, 2008

WASHINGTON - NCART added a Medicaid section to its Web site in February that lists fee schedules, coverage policies and court cases by state. The section includes direct links to state documents, ensuring their timeliness, the organization stated in a release. NCART developed the section to help the industry and state associations respond to their specific payment and coverage issues. "This is the first time state-by-state information on payment issues and coverage policies has been aggregated in a usable format," stated Doug Westerdahl, chair of NCART's Medicaid Committee and CEO of Monroe Wheelchair in Rochester, N.Y., in the release. "I used it to research labor costs across the United States."
