2005 Testimony

Testimony Before The Senate Human Services Committee

Judy Lee, Chairman

HB 1206 - Provider appeals of Medicaid reimbursement denials

February 16, 2005

Chairman Lee and members of the Committee, my name is Melissa Hauer. I am an attorney for the Department of Human Services. I am here today to testify in support of House Bill 1206.

The Department had some concerns about the bill as introduced. Representatives from the Department met with one of the sponsors of the bill to discuss those concerns and we were able to work together to resolve them. The engrossed bill that you have before you is the result of our discussions and it embodies a process that the Department can support to give Medicaid providers a review process when the Department has denied payment for a claim or reduced the level of service payment for a service provided to a Medicaid recipient.

This concludes my testimony. I would be happy to try to answer any questions the committee members may have. Thank you.
