RE:   COVID-19 Emergency Expiration Date Extended to
April 30, 2022


 


 


All
previously published expiration dates related to the COVID-19 emergency are
once again extended by the Alabama Medicaid Agency (Medicaid). The new
expiration date is the earlier of April 30, 2022, the conclusion of the
COVID-19 national emergency, or any expiration date noticed by the Alabama
Medicaid Agency through a subsequent ALERT.


 


A listing of previous
Provider ALERTs and notices related to the health emergency is available by
selecting the Agency’s COVID-19 page in the bottom section:  https://medicaid.alabama.gov/news_detail.aspx?ID=13729.


 


During the
COVID-19 emergency, it is important to file claims as quickly as possible to
ensure payment from Medicaid is made to Medicaid providers close to the date of
service. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has increased the
federal matching percentage for the emergency time frame, but states can only
receive the increased match on claims that are paid during the emergency.
Providers should include appropriate COVID-19 diagnosis code(s) on claims
submitted to help with tracking of COVID-19.
