Consistent with the notice sent to all participating professional providers this past June, Empire has aligned with the New York Medicaid fee schedules and reimbursement policies for Child Health Plus (CHP) effective September 1, 2012. However, certain changes did not make it into our September system release and have been delayed. Empire will be working to align the remaining items over the coming months. During this interim period, Empire will continue to reimburse any of the remaining services for CHP utilizing the fee schedules and reimbursement policies that were in effect prior to September 1, 2012 for those specific providers impacted. To the extent the delay has resulted in Empire continuing to reimburse a higher amount for a service during this interim period, recoupments will not be sought by Empire.
