How to discharge patients - the new process
As we shared in early November, our online patient discharge tool is getting an update. On January 8, the tool was moved to the Member Inquiry section of prism, from Patient Profile.
Any patient discharges submitted through Patient Profile on or after January 8 won’t be processed.
This change comes as Patient Profile is set to be removed from prism on February 1 as part of our Digital First data strategy.
Get more information and step-by-step instructions for the new patient discharge process in our Provider Manual. We’ll also cover the process at our February 8 Virtual Office Advisory (VOA) webinar.
2023 PIP supplemental data audit lists will be sent by Jan. 18
Ensuring the accuracy and integrity of our PCP Incentive Program (PIP) is of the utmost importance to us. To achieve this, we conduct an annual audit of supplemental data provided through Patient Profile and Report 70.
The ACNs required to participate in our 2023 PIP program supplemental data audit have been identified. These ACNs will receive a secure email from their Provider Strategy & Solutions Consultant by Jan. 18 with the requested medical records. This email will appear in prism.
If your ACN was selected, you must respond with the requested medical records by Feb. 1. Failure to do so will result in a 50% penalty for the PIP payout for the program year.
Keep an eye out for an email in prism from our Provider Strategy & Solutions team.
Reminder: 2023 PIP supplemental data and claims deadlines are coming up
