National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI) Provider Notification
INDUSTRY NEWS TAGS: CMS
The National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI) under the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requires state Medicaid programs to incorporate "NCCI methodologies" in their claims processing systems. The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) will soon be adopting these NCCI edits for Medi-Cal claims. Providers will be notified periodically about Medi-Cal’s progress toward final implementation.
For an overview of the NCCI, providers should refer to the National Correct Coding Initiatives Edits page of the CMS website.
