Billing Q & A
THCA Question to HHSC: When a nursing facility is ready to bill for Medicaid payment for a resident(s) who has not been assigned to a plan, who should they bill and who should they expect to receive payment from?
Answer from HHSC: The nursing facility should verify the resident’s eligibility and enrollment on MESAV. If managed care is not indicated on the MESAV, the NF should bill Fee for Service (FFS) as they have previously.
