To: District of Columbia Provider Community:
On Thursday, May 2nd, the Executive Office of the Mayor, represented by Deputy Mayor Otero and DHCF held a stakeholder meeting to address concerns around our Managed Care program transition.
This session was held to report on the implementation of the new Managed Care contracts and the Administration’s plan to address the issue of unpaid claims by Chartered Health Plan (Chartered). To continue reading the letter, please click here (PDF 152.62 KB).
We value our partnerships with the medical community and recognize that the recent events related to the changes in the District's Medicaid Fee Schedule have caused frustration for many.
We apologize for any difficulty this has caused and effective April 25, 2012, UnitedHealthcare Community Plan ("United") suspended recoveries for claims United overpaid due to the 20% reduction in the District's Medicaid fee schedule.
If you have already paid United based on a letter and 1/1/11-10/31/11 claims detail you received from its Recovery Services, United will refund these payments to you within the next thirty (30) to 45 business days.
United is planning a Provider Town Hall here in the District for the week of May 21 to discuss the status of its Medicaid fee schedule implementation. You will receive a invitation directly from United in the very near future. Click here (PDF 68.38 KB) for a Town Hall invitation.
