Subject: Rural health clinics medicaid provider guide (RHCMPG).
The RHCMPG has been revised to update the medicaid coverage group codes and recipient aid category code combinations because certain services provided to pregnant undocumented alien S women are now eligible for encounter payments. (Retroactively effective for dates of service on or after January 1, 2011.) In addition, information has been updated to reflect a change in billing methodology in keeping with correct medical billing and coding standards.
