Correction: Medicaid Reimbursement of Medicare Part C Copayment and Coinsurance Liabilities

Deanna Stephenson

NYSHFA and it's Counsel were instrumental in working with The Department to further clarify recent changes to the New York State Social Services Law. It was previously reported that because of a recent change in the law, Medicaid will reimburse at the rate of 85% of the Medicare Part C copayment or coinsurance amount, retro back to April 1st 2016. In the August 2016 issue of the Medicaid Update, the Department clarified that the law for dually eligible beneficiaries became effective July 1st 2016. The eMedNY System is being updated to reflect the changes and The Department states that claims for services provided after July 1st, 2016 will be adjusted automatically to reflect the new law.
