As many of you are aware, OASAS transition to managed care has taken place. As of October 2015, OASAS is bringing all adult services into Medicaid managed care. This project is part of the Medicaid redesign team initiative.
What does it mean for OASAS current clients?
All future payments for services provided after October 1 will be now managed by Medicaid managed care plans. OASAS centers are obligated to enroll with each managed care plan. WCH credentialing has experience and expertise in this area to help you transition to managed care. Over the last two years, we have successfully contracted many OASAS centers in New York.
Our recommendation for all OASAS centers that have not converted to managed care, is to do it immediately to avoid any financial problems in the future. Please note that for any new future OASAS facilities, Medicaid enrollment will still be required. Managed care plans will not enroll the facility without Medicaid. Please do not hesitate to contact our Credentialing department. Our phone number is 718-934-6714 EXT 1202.
