Section II Ambulatory Surgical Center
242.400 Drug Procedure Codes and National Drug Codes (NDCs) 11-1-15

Effective for claims with dates of service on or after January 1, 2008, Arl[LESS THAN]ansas Medicaid implemented billing protocol per the Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 for drugs. This explains policy and billing protocol for providers that submit claims for drug HCPCS/CPT codes with dates of service on or after January 1, 2008.

The Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 mandates that Arkansas Medicaid require the submission of National Drug Codes (NDCs) on claims submitted with Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System, Level ll/Current Procedural Terminology, 4th edition (HCPCS/CPT) codes for drugs administered. The purpose of this requirement is to assure that the State Medicaid Agencies obtain a rebate from those manufacturers who have signed a rebate agreement with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

A. Covered Labelers

Arkansas Medicaid, by statute, will only pay for a drug procedure billed with an NDC when the phamriaceutical labeler of that drug is a covered labeler with Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). A "covered labeler" is a pharmaceutical manufacturer that has entered into a federal rebate agreement with CMS to provide each State a rebate for products reimbursed by Medicaid Programs. A covered labeler is identified by the first 5 digits of the NDC. To assure a product is payable for administration to a Medicaid beneficiary, compare the labeler code (the first 5 digits of the NDC) to the list of covered labelers which is maintained on the website at https://arkansas.maqellanrx.com/provider/documents/.

A complete listing of "Covered Labelers" is located on the website. See Diagram 1 for an example of this screen. The effective date is when a manufacturer entered into a rebate agreement with CMS. The Labeler termination date indicates that the manufacturer no longer participates in the federal rebate program and therefore the products cannot be reimbursed by Arkansas Medicaid on or after the termination date.

In order for a claim with drug HCPCS/CPT codes to be eligible for payment, the detail date of service must be prior to the NDC termination date. The NDC termination date represents the shelf-life expiration date of the last batch produced, as supplied on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) quarterly update. The date is supplied to CMS by the drug manufacturer/distributor.

Arkansas Medicaid will deny claim details with drug HCPCS/CPT codes with a detail date of service equal to or greater than the NDC termination date.

When completing a Medicaid claim for administering a drug, indicate the HIPAA standard 11-digitNDCwith no dashes or spaces. The 11-digit NDC is comprised of three segments or codes: a 5-digit labeler code, a 4-digit product code and a 2-digit package code. The 10-digit NDC assigned by the FDA printed on the drug package must be changed to the 11-digit fonnat by inserting a leading zero in one of the three segments. Below are examples of the FDA-assigned NDC on a package changed to the appropriate 11-digit HIPAA standard fonnat. Diagram 2 displays the labeler code as five digits with leading zeros; the product code as four digits with leading zeros; the package code as two digits without leading zeros, using the " 5-4-2 " format.

B. Drug Procedure Code (HCPCS/CPT) to NDC Relationship and Billing Principles

HCPCS/CPT codes and any modifiers will continue to be billed per the policy for each procedure code. However, the NDC and NDC quantity of the administered drug is now also required for correct billing of drug HCPCS/CPT codes. To maintain the integrity of the drug rebate program, it is important that the specific NDC from the package used at the time of the procedure be recorded for billing. HCPCS/CPT codes submitted using invalid NDCs or NDCs that were unavailable on the date of service will be rejected/denied. We encourage you to enlist the cooperation of all staff members involved in drug administration to assure collection or notation of the NDC from the actual package used. It is not recommended that billing of NDCs be based on a reference list, as NDCs vary from one labeler to another, from one package size to another and from one time period to another.

Exception: There is no requirement for an NDC when billing for vaccines, radiopharmaceuticals, and allergen immunotherapy.

C. Claims Filing

The HCPCS/CPT codes billing units and the NDC quantity do not always have a one-to-one relationship.

Example 1: The HCPCS/CPT code may specify up to 75 mg of the drug, whereas the NDC quantity is typically billed in units, milliliters or grams. If the patient is provided 2 oral tablets, one at 25 mg and one at 50 mg, the HCPCS/CPT code unit would be 1 (1 total of 75 mg) in the example whereas the NDC quantity would be 1 each (1 unit of the 25 mg tablet and 1 unit of the 50 mg tablet). See Diagram 4.

Diagram 4

Click here to view image

Example 2: If the drug in the example is an injection of 5 ml (or cc) of a product that was 50 mg per 10 ml of a 10 ml single-use vial, the HCPCS/CPT code unit would be 1 (1 unit of 25 mg) whereas the NDC quantity would be 5 (5 ml). In this example, 5 ml or 25 mg would be documented as wasted. See Diagram 5.

D. Electronic Claims Filing 8371 (Outpatient)

Procedure codes that do not require paper billing may be billed electronically. Any procedure codes that have required modifiers in the past will continue to require modifiers.

Arl[LESS THAN]ansas Medicaid will require providers using Provider Electronic Solutions (PES) to use the required NDC format when billing HCPCS/CPT codes for administered drugs.

E. Paper Claims Filing CMS-1450 (UB-04)

Arkansas Medicaid will require providers billing drug HCPCS/CPT codes, including covered unlisted drug procedure codes, to use the required NDC format.

For institutional outpatient claims on the CMS-1450 (UB-04), use the locator field 43 (Description) to list the qualifier of "N4", the 11-digit NDC, the unit of measure qualifier (F2 - International Unit; GR - Gram; ML - Milliliter; UN - Unit), and number of units of the actual NDC administered, spaced and arranged exactly as in Diagram 6. Each NDC, when billed under the same procedure code on the same date of service, is defined as a "sequence."

When billing a single HCPCS/CPT code with multiple NDCs as detail sequences, the first sequence should reflect the total charges in the detail locator field 47 and total HCPCS/CPT code units in locator field 46. Each subsequent sequence number should show zeros in locator fields 46 and 47. See Detail 1, sequence 2 in Diagram 6. The quanfity of the NDC will be the total number of units billed for each specific NDC. See Diagram 6, first detail, sequences 1 and 2. Detail 2 is a Procedure Code that does not require an NDC. Detail 3, sequence 1 gives an example where only one NDC is associated with the HCPCS/CPT code.

Diagram 6

F. Procedure Code/NDC Detail Attachment Form-DMS-664

For drug HCPCS/CPT codes requiring paper billing (i.e., for manual review), complete every field of the DMS-664 "Procedure Code/NDC Detail Attachment Form." Attach this form and any other required documents to your claim when submitting it for processing. See Diagram 7 for an example of the completed form. View or print form DMS-664 and instructions for completion.

G. Adjustments

Paper adjustments for paid claims filed with NDC numbers will not be accepted. Any original claim will have to be voided and a replacement claim will need to be filed. Providers have the option of adjusting a paper or electronic claim electronically.

H. Remittance Advices

Only the first sequence in a detail will be displayed on the remittance advice reflecting either the total amount paid or the denial EOB(s) for the detail.

I. Record Retention

Each provider must retain all records for five (5) years from the date of service or until all audit quesfions, disputes or review issues, appeal hearings, investigations or administrafive/judicial litigation to which the records may relate are concluded, whichever period is longer.

At times, a manufacturer may question the invoiced amount, which results in a drug rebate dispute. If this occurs, you may be contacted requesting a copy of your office records to include documentation pertaining to the billed HCPCS/CPT code. Requested records may include NDC invoices showing the purchase of drugs and documentation showing what drug (name, strength and amount) was administered and on what date, to the beneficiary in question.

This explains policy and billing protocol for providers that submit claims for drug HCPCS/CPT codes with dates of service on and after January 1, 2008.

The Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 mandates that Arkansas Medicaid require the submission of National Drug Codes (NDCs) on claims submitted with Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System, Level ll/Current Procedural Terminology, 4**^ edition (HCPCS/CPT) codes for drugs administered. The purpose of this requirement is to assure that the State Medicaid Agencies obtain a rebate from those manufacturers who have signed a rebate agreement with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

A. Covered Labelers

Arkansas Medicaid, by statute, will only pay for a drug procedure billed with an NDC when the pharmaceutical labeler of that drug is a covered latjeler with Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

B. Drug Procedure Code (HCPCS/CPT) to NDC Relationship and Billing Principles

HCPCS/CPT codes and any modifiers will continue to be billed per the policy for each procedure code. However, the NDC and NDC quantity of the administered drug is now also required for correct billing of drug HCPCS/CPT codes. To maintain the integrity of the drug rebate program, it is important that the specific NDC from the package used at the time of the procedure be recorded for billing. HCPCS/CPT codes submitted using invalid NDCs or NDCs that were unavailable on the date of service will be rejected/denied. We encourage you to enlist the cooperation of all staff members involved in drug administration to assure collection or notation of the NDC from the actual package used. It is not recommended that billing of NDCs be based on a reference list, as NDCs vary from one labeler to another, from one package size to another and from one time period to another.

Exception: There is no requirement for an NDC when billing for vaccines, radiopharmaceuticals and allergen immunotherapy.

II. Claims Filing

The HCPCS/CPT codes billing units and the NDC quantity do not always have a one-to-one relationship.

Example 1: The HCPCS/CPT code may specify up to 75 mg of the drug whereas the NDC quantity is typically billed in units, milliliters or grams. If the patient is provided 2 oral tablets, one at 25 mg and one at 50 mg, the HCPCS/CPT code unit would be 1 (1 total of 75 mg) in the example whereas the NDC quantity would be 1 each (1 unit of the 25 mg tablet and 1 unit of the 50 mg tablet). See Diagram 4.

Diagram 4

Example 2: If the drug in the example is an injection of 5 ml (or cc) of a product that was 50 mg per 10 ml of a 10 ml single-use vial, the HCPCS/CPT code unit would be 1 (1 unit of 25 mg) whereas the NDC quantity would be 5 (5 ml). In this example, 5 ml or 25 mg would be documented as wasted. See Diagram 5.

A. Electronic Claims Filing - 837P (Professional) and 8371 (Outpatient)

Procedure codes that do not require paper billing may be billed electronically. Any procedure codes that have required modifiers in the past will continue to require modifiers.

Arkansas Medicaid requires providers using Provider Electronic Solutions (PES) to use the required NDC format when billing HCPCS/CPT codes for administered drugs.

B. Paper Claims Filing - CMS-1500

Arkansas Medicaid will require providers billing drug HCPCS/CPT codes including covered unlisted drug procedure codes to use the required NDC format.

See Diagram 6 for CMS-1500.

For professional claims, CMS-1500, list the qualifier of "N4," the 11-digit NDC, the unit of measure qualifier (F2 - International Unit; GR - Gram; ML - Milliliter; UN - Unit) and the number of units of the actual NDC administered in the shaded area above detail field 24A, spaced and arranged exactly as in Diagram 6.

Each NDC when billed under the same procedure code on the same date of service is defined as a "sequence." When billing a single HCPCS/CPT code with multiple NDCs as detail sequences, the first sequence should reflect the total charges in detail field 24F and total HCPCS/CPT code units in detail field 24G. Each subsequent sequence number should show zeros in detail fields 24F and 24G. See Detail 1, sequence 2 in Diagram 6.

The quantity of the NDC will be the total number of units billed for each specific NDC. See Diagram 6, first detail, sequences 1 and 2. Detail 2 is a Procedure Code that does not require an NDC. Detail 3, sequence 1 gives an example where only one NDC is associated with the HCPCS/CPT code.

Procedure Code/NDC Detail Attachment Form - DMS-664

For drug HCPCS/CPT codes requiring paper billing (i.e., for manual review), complete every field of the DMS-664 "Procedure Code/NDC Detail Attachment Form." Attach this form and any other required documents to your claim when submitting it for processing. See Diagram 7 for an example of the completed form. Section V of the provider manual includes this form.

III. Adjustments

Paper adjustments for paid claims filed with NDC numbers will not be accepted. Any original claim will have to be voided and a replacement claim will need to be filed. Providers have the option of adjusting a paper or electronic claim electronically.

IV. Remittance Advices

Only the first sequence in a detail will be displayed on the remittance advice reflecting either the total amount paid or the denial EOB(s) for the detail.

V. Record Retention

Each provider must retain all records for five (5) years from the date of service or until all audit questions, dispute or review issues, appeal hearings, investigations or administrative/judicial litigation to which the records may relate are concluded, whichever period is longer.

At times, a manufacturer may question the invoiced amount, which results in a drug rebate dispute. If this occurs, you may be contacted requesting a copy of your office records to include documentation pertaining to the billed HCPCS/CPT code. Requested records may include NDC invoices showing purchase of drugs and documentation showing what drug (name, strength and amount) was administered and on what date, to the beneficiary in question.

262.442 Billing of Multi-Use and Single-Use Vials 11-1-15

Arkansas Medicaid follows the billing protocol per the Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 for drugs.

A. Multiple units may be billed when applicable. Take-home drugs are not covered. Drugs loaded into an infusion pump are not classified as "take-home drugs." Refer to payable CRT code ranges 96365 through 96379.
B. When submitting Arkansas Medicaid drug claims, drug units should be reported in multiples of the dosage included in the HCPCS procedure code description. If the dosage given is not a multiple of the number provided in the HCPCS code description, the provider shall round up to the nearest whole number in order to express the HCPCS description number as a multiple.
1. Single-Use Vials: If the provider must discard the remainder of a single-use vial or other package after administering the prescribed dosage of any given drug, Arkansas Medicaid will cover the amount of the drug discarded along with the amount administered.
2. Multi-Use Vials: Multi-use vials are not subject to payment for any discarded amounts of the drug. The units billed must correspond with the units administered to the beneficiary.
3. Documentation: The provider must clearly document in the patient's medical record the actual dose administered in addition to the exact amount wasted and the total amount the vial is labeled to contain.
4. Paper Billing: For drug HCPCS/CPT codes requiring paper billing (i.e., for manual review), complete every field of the DMS-664 "Procedure Code/NDC Detail Attachment Form." Attach this fomn and any other required documents to your claim when submitting it for processing.

Remember to verify the milligrams given to the patient and then convert to the proper units for billing.

Follow the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) requirements for safe practices regarding expiration and sterility of multi-use vials.

See Section 262.441 for additional information regarding National Drug Code (NDC) billing.

242.143 National Drug Codes (NDCs) 11-1-15

Effective for claims with dates of service on or after January 1, 2008, Arkansas Medicaid implemented billing protocol per the Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005. This explains policy and billing protocol for providers that submit claims for drug HCPCS/CPT codes with dates of service on and after January 1, 2008.

The Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 mandates that Arkansas Medicaid require the submission of National Dnjg Codes (NDCs) on claims submitted with Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System, Level ll/Current Procedural Tenninology, 4'*^ edition (HCPCS/CPT) codes for drugs administered. The purpose of this requirement is to assure that the State Medicaid Agencies obtain a rebate from those manufacturers who have signed a rebate agreement with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

A. Covered Labelers

Arkansas Medicaid, by statute, will only pay for a drug procedure billed with an NDC when the pharmaceutical labeler of that drug is a covered labeler with Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). A "covered labeler" is a pharmaceutical manufacturer that has entered into a federal rebate agreement with CMS to provide each State a rebate for products reimbursed by Medicaid Programs. A covered labeler is identified by the first 5 digits of the NDC. To assure a product is payable for administration to a Medicaid beneficiary, compare the labeler code (the first 5 digits of the NDC) to the list of covered labelers which is maintained on the website at https://arkansas.maqellanrx.com/provider/documents/.

A complete listing of "Covered Labelers" is located on the website. The effective date is when a manufacturer entered into a rebate agreement with CMS. The Labeler termination date indicates that the manufacturer no longer participates in the federal rebate program and therefore the products cannot be reimbursed by Arkansas Medicaid on or after the termination date. In order for a claim with drug HCPCS/CPT codes to be eligible for payment, the detail date of service must be prior to the NDC termination date. The NDC termination date represents the shelf-life expiration date of the last batch produced, as supplied on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) quarterly update. The date is supplied to CMS by the drug manufacturer/distributor.

Arkansas Medicaid will deny claim details with drug HCPCS/CPT codes with a detail date of service equal to or greater than the NDC termination date.

When completing a Medicaid claim for administering a drug, indicate the HIPAA standard 11 -digit NDC with no dashes or spaces. The 11 -digit NDC is comprised of three segments or codes: a 5-digit labeler code, a 4-digit product code and a 2-digit package code. The 10-digit NDC assigned by the FDA printed on the drug package must be changed to the 11-digit fonnat by inserting a leading zero in one of the three segments. Below are examples of the FDA-assigned NDC on a package changed to the appropriate 11-digit HIPAA standard format. Diagram 1 displays the labeler code as five digits with leading zeros; the product code as four digits with leading zeros; the package code as two digits without leading zeros, using the " 5-4-2 " format.

Arl[LESS THAN]ansas Medicaid will require providers using Provider Electronic Solutions (PES) to use the required NDC forniat when billing HCPCS/CPT codes for administered drugs.

E. Paper Claims Filing CMS-1450 (UB-04)

Arkansas Medicaid will require providers billing drug HCPCS/CPT codes, including covered unlisted drug procedure codes, to use the required NDC fonnat.

For institutional outpatient claims on the CMS-1450 (UB-04), use the locator field 43 (Description) to list the qualifier of "N4," the 11-digit NDC, the unit of measure qualifier (F2 - International Unit; GR - Gram; ML - Milliliter; UN - Unit) and number of units of the actual NDC administered, spaced and arranged exactly as in Diagram 5. Each NDC when billed under the same procedure code on the same date of service is defined as a "sequence." When billing a single HCPCS/CPT code with multiple NDCs as detail sequences, the first sequence should reflect the total charges in detail locator field 47 and total HCPCS/CPT code units in locator field 46. Each subsequent sequence number should show zeros in locator fields 46 and 47. See Detail 1, sequence 2 in Diagram 5. The quantity of the NDC will be the total number of units billed for each specific NDC. See Diagram 5, first detail, sequences 1 and 2. Detail 2 is a Procedure Code that does not require an NDC. Detail 3, sequence 1 gives an example where only one NDC is associated with the HCPCS/CPT code.

NOTE: This drug or other drugs in this class are only approved for the diagnosis of alpha 1-

proteinase (antitrypsin) deficiency with clinically evident emphysema. Levels of alpha 1-proteinase must be clearly documented in the chart. Alpha 1 antitrypsin concentrations should be less than 80 mg per deciliter (mg/dl). The medical record should contain a history and physical exam documenting this disease with clear clinical evidence of emphysema. Obstructive lung disease, emphysema, is defined by a forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) of 30-65% of predicted or a rapid decline in lung function as defined as a change in FEV1 of greater than 120 ml/year. The patient should be a nonsmoker. The dosage, frequency, site of administration and duration of the therapy should be reasonable, clinically appropriate and supported by evidence-based literature and adjusted based upon severity, alternative available treatments and previous response to alpha 1 proteinase Inhibitor (Human) therapy for the condition addressed. Coverage for deficiency-associated liver disease without emphysema, cystic fibrosis and diabetes mellitus is considered experimental and is not approved. Therapy should maintain alpha 1 antitrypsin levels above 80 mg/dl. Due to risk of anaphylaxis, this drug must be given in an infusion center with immediate access to a physician trained in the treatment of this reaction. The only other approved infusion would be by a specially trained nurse who has immediate access to treatment for anaphylaxis and is trained in this special situation.

NOTE: Prolia Policy: Covered for female, post-menopausal beneficiaries with osteoporosis and inability to tolerate oral medications for osteoporosis (ICD-9-CM 733.01). Inability to tolerate oral medications must be documented in medical history and physical exam with reason for intolerance clearly documented and name of oral medications that patient was unable to tolerate. Inability to tolerate oral medication must include signs and symptoms of esophageal disease. Patient must be at high-risl[LESS THAN] for osteoporotic fracture or have multiple risk factors for fracture. Physicians should document that they have infonned the patient of the risks of therapy in accordance with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy Program. Use this procedure code for Prolia. An additional indication approved by the FDA for use of Prolia is as treatment to increase bone mass in patients at high-risk for fracture receiving androgen deprivation therapy for non-metastatic prostate cancer (ICD-9-CM 185) or adjuvant aromatase inhibitor therapy for breast cancer (ICD-9-CM 174.0-175.9). In men with non-metastatic prostate cancer, Denosumab also reduced the incidence of vertebral fracture. Medical records must include history and physical exam clearly documenting above indications and why Zometa cannot be used. The NDC for the drug requested must be listed on the request.

Xgeva Policy: Arkansas Medicaid requires that Xgeva be filed under J0897 on a paper claim with the drug name and dose. Xgeva is only approved for prevention of skeletal-related events in patients with bone metastases from breast and prostate cancer and solid tumors. Xgeva is not indicated for the prevention of skeletal-related events in patients with multiple myeloma. Xgeva requires documentation in the medical record of the rationale for why Zometa was not used. A complete history and physical exam documenting the type of cancer and what chemotherapy is prescribed is required to be in the medical record. The NDC for the drug requested must be listed on the request.

NOTE: Ipilimumab is indicated for the treatment of unresectable or metastatic melanoma. It should be given every 3 weeks for a total of four doses. Liver function tests, thyroid function tests and clinical chemistries must be monitored before each dose. The genetic test for BRAF V600E mutation should be done on all patients to determine whether they are candidates for Zelboraf. If positive for the mutation, the patient should first be given a trial of Zelboraf. If the patient fails the trial or does not have the mutation, then they should be considered for Ipilimumab. Ipilimumab should only be prescribed by physicians who are prepared to treat immune mediated complications. Participation in the risl[LESS THAN] evaluation and mitigation program is essential. Use of Ipilimumab requires a detailed history and physical exam including all previous treatments and clear documentation that the melanoma is not treatable by surgery or has metastasized. Patients considered for treatment with Ipilimumab should be at least 18 years old and have a life expectancy of at least 4 months and have previously been treated with either dacarbazine, temozolomide, carboplatin or interleukin-2. If not treated first with one of these drugs, a detailed letter of medical necessity documenting the reasons for not treating the patient with one of these drugs first is required.

Section II Hyperalimentation
242.401 National Drug Codes (NDCs)

Effective for claims with dates of service on or after January 1, 2008, Arlonsas IVIedicaid implemented billing protocol per the Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005. This explains policy and billing protocol for providers that submit claims for drug HCPCS/CPT codes with dates of service on and after January 1, 2008.

The Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 mandates that Arkansas Medicaid require the submission of National Drug Codes (NDCs) on claims submitted with Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System, Level I I/Current Procedural Terminology, 4'^ edition (HCPCS/CPT) codes for drugs administered. The purpose of this requirement is to assure that the State Medicaid Agencies obtain a rebate from those manufacturers who have signed a rebate agreement with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

A. Covered Labelers

Arkansas Medicaid, by statute, will only pay for a drug procedure billed with an NDC when the pharmaceutical labeler of that drug is a covered labeler with Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). A "covered labeler" is a phannaceutical manufacturer that has entered into a federal rebate agreement with CMS to provide each State a rebate for products reimbursed by Medicaid Programs. A covered labeler is identified by the first 5 digits of the NDC. To assure a product is payable for administration to a Medicaid beneficiary, compare the labeler code (the first 5 digits of the NDC) to the list of covered labelers which is maintained on the website at https://arkansas.maqellanrx.com/provider/documents/.

A complete listing of "Covered Labelers" is located on the website. See Diagram 1 for an example of this screen. The effective date is when a manufacturer entered into a rebate agreement with CMS. The Labeler termination date indicates that the manufacturer no longer participates in the federal rebate program and therefore the products cannot be reimbursed by Arkansas Medicaid on or after the termination date.

In order for a claim with drug HCPCS/CPT codes to be eligible for payment, the detail date of service must be prior to the NDC termination date. The NDC temiination date represents the shelf-life expiration date of the last batch produced, as supplied on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) quarterly update. The date is supplied to CMS by the drug manufacturer/distributor.

Arkansas Medicaid will deny claim details with drug HCPCS/CPT codes with a detail date of service equal to or greater than the NDC termination date.

When completing a Medicaid claim for administering a drug, indicate tine HIPAA standard 11-digit NDC with no dashes or spaces. The 11-digit NDC is comprised of three segments or codes: a 5-digit labeler code, a 4-digit product code and a 2-digit package code. The 10-digit NDC assigned by the FDA printed on the drug package must be changed to the 11-digit format by inserting a leading zero in one of the three segments. Below are examples of the FDA assigned NDC on a package changed to the appropriate 11-digit HIPAA standard format. Diagram 2 displays the labeler code as five digits with leading zeros; the product code as four digits with leading zeros; the package code as two digits without leading zeros, using the " 5-4-2 " format.

NDCs submitted in any configuration other than the 11-digit format will be rejected/denied. NDCs billed to Medicaid for payment must use the 11-digit format without dashes or spaces between the numbers.

See Diagram 3 for sample NDCs as they might appear on drug packaging and the corresponding format which should be used for billing Arkansas Medicaid:

B. Drug Procedure Code (HCPCS/CPT) to NDC Relationship and Billing Principles

HCPCS/CPT codes and any modifiers will continue to be billed per the policy for each procedure code. However, the NDC and NDC quantity of the administered drug is now also required for correct billing of drug HCPCS/CPT codes. To maintain the integrity of the drug reJDate program, it is important that the specific NDC from the package used at the time of the procedure be recorded for billing. HCPCS/CPT codes submitted using invalid NDCs or NDCs that were unavailable on the date of service will be rejected/denied. We encourage you to enlist the cooperation of all staff members involved in drug administration to assure collection or notation of the NDC from the actual package used. It is not recommended that billing of NDCs be based on a reference list, as NDCs vary from one labeler to another, from one package size to another and from one time period to another.

Exception: There is no requirement for an NDC when billing for vaccines, radiopharmaceuticals and allergen immunotherapy.

II. Claims Filing

The HCPCS/CPT codes billing units and the NDC quantity do not always have a one-to-one relationship.

Example 1: The HCPCS/CPT code may specify up to 75 mg of the drug whereas the NDC quantity is typically billed in units, milliliters or grams. If the patient is provided 2 oral tablets, one at 25 mg and one at 50 mg, the HCPCS/CPT code unit would be 1 (1 total of 75 mg) in the example whereas the NDC quantity would be 1 each (1 unit of the 25 mg tablet and 1 unit of the 50 mg tablet). See Diagram 4.

Diagram 4

Click here to view image

Example 2: If the drug in the example is an injection of 5 ml (or cc) of a product that was 50 mg per 10 ml of a 10 ml single-use vial, the HCPCS/CPT code unit would be 1 (1 unit of 25 mg) whereas the NDC quantity would be 5 (5 ml). In this example, 5 ml or 25 mg would be documented as wasted. See Diagram 5.

Diagram 5

A. Electronic Claims Filing - 837P (Professional) and 8371 (Outpatient)

Procedure codes that do not require paper billing may be billed electronically. Any procedure codes that have required modifiers in the past will continue to require modifiers.

Arkansas Medicaid requires providers using Provider Electronic Solutions (PES) to use the required NDC format when billing HCPCS/CPT codes for administered drugs.

B. Paper Claims Filing-CMS-1500

Arkansas Medicaid will require providers billing drug HCPCS/CPT codes including covered unlisted drug procedure codes to use the required NDC format.

See Diagram 6 for CMS-1500.

For professional claims, CMS-1500, list the qualifier of "N4," the 11-digit NDC, the unit of measure qualifier (F2 - International Unit; GR - Gram; ML - Milliliter; UN - Unit) and the number of units of the actual NDC administered in the shaded area above detail field 24A, spaced and arranged exactly as in Diagram 6.

Each NDC when billed under the same procedure code on the same date of service is defined as a "sequence." When billing a single HCPCS/CPT code with multiple NDCs as detail sequences, the first sequence should reflect the total charges in detail field 24F and total HCPCS/CPT code units in detail field 24G. Each subsequent sequence number should show zeros in detail fields 24F and 24G. See Detail 1, sequence 2 in Diagram 6.

The quantity of the NDC will be the total number of units billed for each specific NDC. See Diagram 6, first detail, sequences 1 and 2. Detail 2 is a Procedure Code that does not require an NDC. Detail 3, sequence 1 gives an example where only one NDC is associated with the HCPCS/CPT code.

Diagram 6

Click here to view image

Procedure Code/NDC Detail Attachment Form- DMS-664

For drug HCPCS/CPT codes requiring paper billing (i.e., for manual review), complete every field of the DMS-664 "Procedure Code/NDC Detail Attachment Fomi." Attach this form and any other required documents to your claim when submitting it for processing. See Diagram 7 for an example of the completed form. Section V of the provider manual includes this form.

Diagram 7

Click here to view image

III. Adjustments

Paper adjustments for paid claims filed with NDC numbers will not be accepted. Any original claim will have to be voided and a replacement claim will need to be filed. Providers have the option of adjusting a paper or electronic claim electronically.

IV. Remittance Advices

Only the first sequence in a detail will be displayed on the remittance advice reflecting either the total amount paid or the denial EOB(s) for the detail.

V. Record Retention

Each provider must retain all records for five (5) years from the date of service or until all audit questions, dispute or review issues, appeal hearings, investigations or administrative/judicial litigation to which the records may relate are concluded, whichever period is longer.

At times, a manufacturer may question the invoiced amount, winicli results in a drug rebate dispute. If this occurs, you may be contacted requesting a copy of your office records to include documentation pertaining to the billed HCPCS/CPT code. Requested records may include NDC invoices showing purchase of drugs and documentation showing what drug (name, strength and amount) was administered and on what date, to the beneficiary in question.

242.402 Billing of Multi-Use and Single-Use Vials 11-1-15

Arkansas Medicaid follows the billing protocol per the Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 for drugs.

A. Multiple units may be billed when applicable. Take-home drugs are not covered. Drugs loaded into an infusion pump are not classified as "take-home drugs." Refer to payable CPT code ranges 96365 through 96379.
B. When submitting Arkansas Medicaid drug claims, drug units should be reported in multiples of the dosage included in the HCPCS procedure code description. If the dosage given is not a multiple of the number provided in the HCPCS code description the provider shall round up to the nearest whole number in order to express the HCPCS description number as a multiple.

252.438 National Drug Codes (NDCs) 11-1-15

Effective for claims witli dates of service on or after January 1, 2008, Arl[LESS THAN]ansas Medicaid implemented billing protocol per tlie Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005. This explains policy and billing protocol for providers that submit claims for drug HCPCS/CPT codes with dates of service on and after January 1, 2008.

The Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 mandates that Arkansas Medicaid require the submission of National Drug Codes (NDCs) on claims submitted with Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System, Level ll/Current Procedural Terminology, 4* edition (HCPCS/CPT) codes for drugs administered. The purpose of this requirement is to assure that the State Medicaid Agencies obtain a rebate from those manufacturers who have signed a rebate agreement with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

A. Covered Labelers

Arlcansas Medicaid, by statute, will only pay for a drug procedure billed with an NDC when the phannaceutical labeler of that drug is a covered labeler with Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). A "covered labeler" is a pharmaceutical manufacturer that has entered into a federal rebate agreement with CMS to provide each State a rebate for products reimbursed by Medicaid Programs. A covered labeler is identified by the first 5 digits of the NDC. To assure a product is payable for administration to a Medicaid beneficiary, compare the labeler code (the first 5 digits of the NDC) to the list of covered labelers which is maintained on the website at https://arkansas.maqellanrx.com/provider/documents/ .

A complete listing of "Covered Labelers" is located on the website. See Diagram 1 for an example of this screen. The effective date is when a manufacturer entered into a rebate agreement with CMS. The Labeler termination date indicates that the manufacturer no longer participates in the federal rebate program and therefore the products cannot be reimbursed by Arlcansas Medicaid on or after the termination date.

In order for a claim with drug HCPCS/CPT codes to be eligible for payment, the detail date of service must be prior to the NDC termination date. The NDC tennination date represents the shelf-life expiration date of the last batch produced, as supplied on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) quarterly update. The date is supplied to CMS by the drug manufacturer/distributor.

Arkansas Medicaid will deny claim details with drug HCPCS/CPT codes with a detail date of service equal to or greater than the NDC termination date.

When completing a Medicaid claim for administering a drug, indicate the HIPAA standard 11-digit NDC with no dashes or spaces. The 11-digit NDC is comprised of three segments or codes: a 5-digit labeler code, a 4-digit product code and a 2-digit package code. The 10-digit NDC assigned by the FDA printed on the drug package must be changed to the 11-digit format by inserting a leading zero in one of the three segments. Below are examples of the FDA assigned NDC on a package changed to the appropriate 11-digit HIPAA standard format. Diagram 2 displays the labeler code as five digits with leading zeros; the product code as four digits with leading zeros; the package code as two digits without leading zeros, using the " 5-4-2 " format.

B. Drug Procedure Code (HCPCS/CPT) to NDC Relationship and Billing Principles

HCPCS/CPT codes and any modifiers will continue to be billed per the policy for each procedure code. However, the NDC and NDC quantity of the administered drug is now also required for correct billing of drug HCPCS/CPT codes. To maintain the integrity of the drug rebate program, it is important that the specific NDC from the package used at the time of the procedure be recorded for billing. HCPCS/CPT codes submitted using invalid NDCs or NDCs that were unavailable on the date of service will be rejected/denied. We encourage you to enlist the cooperation of all staff members involved in drug administration to assure collection or notation of the NDC from the actual package used. It is not recommended that billing of NDCs be based on a reference list, as NDCs vary from one labeler to another, from one package size to another and from one time period to another.

Exception: There is no requirement for an NDC when billing for vaccines radiopharmaceuticals and allergen immunotherapy.

II. Claims Filing

The HCPCS/CPT codes billing units and the NDC quantity do not always have a one-to-one relationship.

Example 1: The HCPCS/CPT code may specify up to 75 mg of the drug whereas the NDC quantity is typically billed in units, milliliters or grams. If the patient is provided 2 oral tablets, one at 25 mg and one at 50 mg, the HCPCS/CPT code unit would be 1 (1 total of 75 mg) in the example whereas the NDC quantity would be 1 each (1 unit of the 25 mg tablet and 1 unit of the 50 mg tablet). See Diagram 4.

Diagram 4

Click here to view image

Example 2: If the drug in the example is an injection of 5 ml (or cc) of a product that was 50 mg per 10 ml of a 10 ml single-use vial, the HCPCS/CPT code unit would be 1 (1 unit of 25 mg) whereas the NDC quantity would be 5 (5 ml). In this example, 5 ml or 25 mg would be documented as wasted. See Diagram 5.

A. Electronic Claims Filing - 837P (Professional) and 8371 (Outpatient)

Procedure codes that do not require paper billing may be billed electronically. Any procedure codes that have required modifiers in the past will continue to require modifiers.

Arkansas Medicaid requires providers using Provider Electronic Solutions (PES) to use the required NDC format when billing HCPCS/CPT codes for administered drugs.

B. Paper Claims Filing - CMS-1500

Arkansas Medicaid will require providers billing drug HCPCS/CPT codes including covered unlisted drug procedure codes to use the required NDC format.

See Diagram 6 for CMS-1500.

For professional claims, CMS-1500, list the qualifier of "N4", the 11 -digit NDC, the unit of measure qualifier (F2 - International Unit; GR - Gram; ML - Milliliter; UN - Unit) and the number of units of the actual NDC administered in ttie sfiaded area above detail field 24A, spaced and arranged exactly as in Diagram 6.

Each NDC when billed under the same procedure code on the same date of service is defined as a "sequence." When billing a single HCPCS/CPT code with multiple NDCs as detail sequences, the first sequence should reflect the total charges in detail field 24F and total HCPCS/CPT code units in detail field 24G. Each subsequent sequence number should show zeros in detail fields 24F and 24G. See Detail 1, sequence 2 in Diagram 6.

The quantity of the NDC will be the total number of units billed for each specific NDC. See Diagram 6, first detail, sequences 1 and 2. Detail 2 is a Procedure Code that does not require an NDC. Detail 3, sequence 1 gives an example where only one NDC is associated with the HCPCS/CPT code.

Diagram 6

Procedure Code/NDC Detail Attachment Form- DMS-664

For drug HCPCS/CPT codes requiring paper billing (i.e., for manual review), complete every field of the DMS-664 "Procedure Code/NDC Detail Attachment Fonn." Attach this form and any other required documents to your claim when submitting it for processing. See Diagram 7 for an example of the completed form. Section V of the provider manual includes this form.

Diagram 7

III. Adjustments

Paper adjustments for paid claims filed with NDC numbers will not be accepted. Any original claim will have to be voided and a replacement claim will need to be filed. Providers have the option of adjusting a paper or electronic claim electronically.

IV. Remittance Advices

Only the first sequence in a detail will be displayed on the remittance advice reflecting either the total amount paid or the denial EOB(s) for the detail.

V. Record Retention

Each provider must retain all records for five (5) years from the date of service or until all audit questions, dispute or review issues, appeal hearings, investigations or administrative/judicial litigation to which the records may relate are concluded, whichever period is longer.

At times, a manufacturer may question the invoiced amount, which results in a drug rebate dispute. If this occurs, you may be contacted requesting a copy of your office records to include documentation pertaining to the billed HCPCS/CPT code. Requested records may include NDC invoices showing purchase of drugs and documentation showing what drug (name, strength and amount) was administered and on what date, to the beneficiary in question.

252.439 Billing of Multi-Use and Single-Use Vials 11-1-15

Arkansas Medicaid follows the billing protocol per the Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 for drugs.

292.950 Injections, Therapeutic and/or Diagnostic Agents 11-1-15
A. Providers billing the Arkansas Medicaid Program for covered injections should bill the appropriate CPT or HCPCS procedure code for the specific injection administered. The procedure codes and their descriptions may be found in the Current Procedure Terminology (CPT) and in the Healthcare Common Procedural Coding System Level II (HCPCS) coding books.

Injection administration code, T1502 is payable for beneficiaries of all ages. T1502 may be used for billing the administration of subcutaneous and/or intramuscular injections only. This procedure code cannot be billed when the medication is administered "ORALLY." No fee is billable for drugs administered orally.

T1502 cannot be billed separately for Influenza Virus vaccines or Vaccines for Children (VFC) vaccines.

T1502 cannot be billed to administer any medication given for family planning purposes. No other fee is billable when the provider decides not to supply family planning injectable medications.

T1502 cannot be billed when the drug administered is not FDA approved.

See the table below when billing T1502:

Procedure Code

Modifier Eligibility Category

T1502

EP ARKids-A (Ages 0-20)

T1502

ARKids-B

T1502

Ages 19 and above

Most of the covered drugs can be billed electronically. However, any covered drug marked with an asterisk (*) must be billed on paper with the name of the drug and dosage listed in the "Procedures, Services, or Supplies" column, Field 24D, of the CIVIS-1500 claim form. View a CIVIS-1500 sample form.If requested, additional documentation may be required to justify medical necessity. Reimbursement for manually priced drugs is based on a percentage of the average wholesale price.

See Section 292.940 for coverage information of radiopharmaceutical procedure codes.

Arkansas Medicaid follows the billing protocol per the Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 for drugs. See Section 292.910 for further information.

Administration of therapeutic agents is payable only if provided in a physician's office, place of service code "11." These procedures are not payable to the physician if performed in any other setting. Therapeutic injections should only be provided by physicians experienced in tfie provision of these medications and who have the facilities to treat patients who may experience adverse reactions. The capability to treat infusion reactions with appropriate life support techniques should be immediately available. Only one administration fee is allowed per date of service unless "multiple sites" are indicated in the "Procedures, Services, or Supplies" field in the CIVIS-ISOO claim fomri. Reimbursement for supplies is included in the administration fee. An administration fee is not allowed when drugs are given orally.

Multiple units may be billed when applicable. Take-home drugs are not covered. Drugs loaded into an infusion pump are not classified as "take-home drugs." Refer to payable CRT code ranges 96365 through 96379 and 96401 through 96549 for therapeutic and chemotherapy administration procedure codes.

See Section 292.940 for radiopharmaceutical drugs.

B. For consideration of payable unlisted CPT/HCPCS drug procedure codes:
1. The provider must submit a paper claim that includes a description of the drug being represented by the unlisted procedure code on the claim forni.
2. Documentation that further describes the drug provided must be attached and must include justification for medical necessity.
3. All other billing requirements must be met in order for payment to be approved.
C. Immunizations

Physicians may bill for immunization procedures on the CMS-1500 claim form. View a CiVIS-1500 sample form. See Section 292.950 for covered vaccines and billing protocols.

Coverage criteria for all immunizations and vaccines are listed in Part E of this section.

Influenza virus vaccine through the Vaccines for Children (VFC) program is determined by the age of the beneficiary and obviously which vaccine is used.

The administration fee for all vaccines is included in the reimbursement fee for the vaccine CRT procedure code.

D. Vaccines for Children (VFC)

The Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program was established to generate awareness and access for childhood immunizations. Arkansas Medicaid established new procedure codes for billing the administration of VFC immunizations for children under the age of 19 years of age. To enroll in the VFC Program, contact the Arkansas Division of Health. Providers may also obtain the vaccines to administer from the Arkansas Division of Health. View or print Arkansas Division of Health contact information.

Medicaid policy regarding immunizations for adults remains unchanged by the VFC Program.

Vaccines available through the VFC Program are covered for Medicaid-eligible children. Administration fee only is reimbursed. When filing claims for administering VFC vaccines, providers must use the CRT procedure code for the vaccine administered. Electronic and paper claims require modifiers EP and TJ. When vaccines are administered to beneficiaries of ARKids First-B services, only modifier TJ must be used for billing. Any additional billing and coverage protocols are listed under the specific procedure code in the tables section of this manual. See Part F of this section.

E. Billing of Multi-Use and Single-Use Vials

Arkansas Medicaid follows the billing protocol per the Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 for drugs.

1. Multiple units may be billed when applicable. Take-home drugs are not covered. Drugs loaded into an infusion pump are not classified as "take-home drugs." Refer to payable CPT code ranges 96365 through 96379.
2. When submitting Arkansas Medicaid drug claims, drug units should be reported in multiples of the dosage included in the HCPCS procedure code description. If the dosage given is not a multiple of the number provided in the HCPCS code description the provider shall round up to the nearest whole number in order to express the HCPCS description number as a multiple.
a. Single-Use Vials: If the provider must discard the remainder of a single-use vial or other package after administering the prescribed dosage of any given drug, Arkansas Medicaid will cover the amount of the drug discarded along with the amount administered.
b. Multi-Use Vials: Multi-use vials are not subject to payment for any discarded amounts of the drug. The units billed must correspond with the units administered to the beneficiary.
c. Documentation: The provider must clearly document in the patient's medical record the actual dose administered in addition to the exact amount wasted and the total amount the vial is labeled to contain.
d. Paper Billing: For drug HCPCS/CPT codes requiring paper billing (i.e. for manual review), complete every field of the DI\/IS-664 "Procedure Code/NDC Detail Attachment Form." Attach this form and any other required documents to your claim when submitting it for processing.

Remember to verify the milligrams given to the patient and then convert to the proper units for billing.

Follow the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) requirements for safe practices regarding expiration and sterility of multi-use vials.

See Section 292.910 for additional information regarding National Drug Code (NDC) billing.

F. Tables of Payable Procedure Codes

The tables of payable procedure codes are designed with eight columns of information.

1. The first column of the list contains the CPT or HCPCS procedure codes.
2. The second column indicates any modifiers that must be used in conjunction with the procedure code when billed, either electronically or on paper.
3. The third column indicates that the coverage of the procedure code is restricted based on the beneficiary's age in number of years(y) or months (m).
4. The fourth column indicates specific ICD primary diagnosis restrictions.
5. The fifth column contains information about the "diagnosis list" for which a procedure code may be used. See the page header for the diagnosis list 003 detail.
6. The sixth column indicates whether a procedure is subject to medical review before payment.
7. The seventh column indicates a procedure code requires a prior authorization before the service is provided. (See Section 261.100 for Prior Authorization instructions.)
8. The eighth column indicates if a procedure code requires a prior approval letter from the Arkansas Medicaid Medical Director for Clinical Affairs for the Division of Medical Services. View contact information for the Medical Director for Clinical Affairs for the Division of Medical Services.

*Procedure code requires paper billing with applicable attachments and must follow NDC protocol. (See Section 292.910 for NDC protocol).

See Sections 261.000 - 261.220 for prior authorization procedures.

See Section 244.100 for instructions regarding obtaining a Prior Approval Letter.

NOTE: This drug or other drugs in this class are only approved for the diagnosis of alpha 1-

proteinase (antitrypsin) deficiency with clinically evident emphysema. Levels of alpha 1-proteinase must be clearly documented in the chart. Alpha 1 antitrypsin concentrations should be less than 80 mg per deciliter (mg/dl). The medical record should contain a history and physical exam documenting this disease with clear clinical evidence of emphysema. Obstructive lung disease, emphysema, is defined by a forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) of 30-65% of predicted or a rapid decline in lung function as defined as a change in FEV1 of greater than 120 ml/year. The patient should be a nonsmoker. The dosage, frequency, site of administration and duration of the therapy should be reasonable, clinically appropriate and supported by evidence-based literature and adjusted based upon severity, alternative available treatments and previous response to Alpha 1 Proteinase Inhibitor (Human) therapy for the condition addressed. Coverage for deficiency-associated liver disease without emphysema, cystic fibrosis and diabetes mellitus is considered experimental and is not approved. Therapy should maintain alpha 1 antitrypsin levels above 80 mg/dl. Due to risk of anaphylaxis, this drug must be given in an infusion center with immediate access to a physician trained in the treatment of this reaction. The only other approved infusion would be by a specially trained nurse who has immediate access to treatment for anaphylaxis and is trained in this special situation.

An additional indication approved by the FDA for use of Prolia is as treatment to increase bone mass in patients at high-risk for fracture receiving androgen deprivation therapy for non-metastatic prostate cancer (View ICD Codes.) or adjuvant aromatase inhibitor therapy for breast cancer (View ICD Codes.). In men with non-metastatic prostate cancer, Denosumab also reduced the incidence of vertebral fracture. Medical records must include history and physical exam clearly documenting above indications and why Zometa cannot be used. The NDC for the drug requested must be listed on the request.

Xgeva Policy: Arkansas Medicaid requires that Xgeva be filed under J0897 on a paper claim with the drug name and dose. Xgeva is only approved for prevention of skeletal-related events in patients with bone metastases from breast and prostate cancer and solid tumors. Xgeva is not indicated for the prevention of skeletal-related events in patients with multiple myeloma. Xgeva requires documentation in the medical record of the rationale for why Zometa was not used. A complete history and physical exam documenting the type of cancer and what chemotherapy is prescribed is required to be in the medical record. The NDC for the drug requested must be listed on the request.

NOTE: Supprelin LA: Prior to initiation of treatment, a clinical diagnosis of GPP (View ICD Codes.) shiould be confirmed by measurement of blood concentrations of total sex steroids, luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) following stimulation with a GnRH analog, and assessment of bone age versus chronological age. Baseline evaluations should include height and weight measurements, diagnostic imaging of the brain (to rule out intracranial tumor), pelvic/testicular/adrenal ultrasound (to rule out steroid secreting tumors), human chorionic gonadotropin levels (to rule out a chorionic gonadotropin secreting tumor) and adrenal steroids to exclude congenital adrenal hyperplasia. All tests and screenings must be documented by medical records and submitted with history and physical examination when requesting prior approval.

NOTE: Ipilmumab is indicated for the treatment of unresectable or metastatic melanoma. It should be given every 3 weeks for a total of four doses. Liver function tests, thyroid function tests, and clinical chemistries must be monitored before each dose. The genetic test for BRAF V600E mutation should be done on all patients to determine whether they are candidates for Zelboraf. If positive for the mutation, the patient should first be given a trial of Zelboraf. If the patient fails the trial or does not have the mutation, then they should be considered for Ipilmumab. Ipilmumab should only be prescribed by physicians who are prepared to treat immune mediated complications. Participation in the risk evaluation and mitigation program is essential. Use of Ipilmumab requires a detailed history and physical exam including all previous treatments and clear documentation that the melanoma is not treatable by surgery or has metastasized. Patients considered for treatment with Ipilmumab should be at least 18 years old and have a life expectancy of at least 4 months and have previously been treated with either dacarbazine, temozolomide, carboplatin or interleukin-2. If not treated first with one of these drugs, a detailed letter of medical necessity documenting the reasons for not treating the patient with one of these drugs first is required.

NOTE: This drug or other drugs in this class are only approved for the diagnosis of alpha 1-

proteinase (antitrypsin) deficiency with clinically evident emphysema. Levels of alpha 1-proteinase must be clearly documented in the chart. Alpha 1 antitrypsin concentrations should be less than 80 mg per deciliter (mg/dl). The medical record should contain a history and physical exam documenting this disease with clear clinical evidence of emphysema. Obstructive lung disease, emphysema, is defined by a forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) of 30-65% of predicted or a rapid decline in lung function as defined as a change in FEV1 of greater than 120 ml/year. The patient should be a nonsmoker. The dosage, frequency, site of administration and duration of the therapy should be reasonable, clinically appropriate and supported by evidence-based literature and adjusted based upon severity, alternative available treatments and previous response to Alpha 1 Proteinase Inhibitor (Human) therapy for the condition addressed. Coverage for deficiency-associated liver disease without emphysema, cystic fibrosis and diabetes mellitus is considered experimental and is not approved. Therapy should maintain alpha 1 antitrypsin levels above 80 mg/dl. Due to risl[LESS THAN] of anaphylaxis, this drug must be given in an infusion center with immediate access to a physician trained in the treatment of this reaction. The only other approved infusion would be by a specially trained nurse who has immediate access to treatment for anaphylaxis and is trained in this special situation.

An additional indication approved by the FDA for use of Proiia is as treatment to increase bone mass in patients at high-risk for fracture receiving androgen deprivation therapy for non-metastatic prostate cancer (View ICD Codes.) or adjuvant aromatase inhibitor therapy for breast cancer (View ICD Codes.). In men with non-metastatic prostate cancer, Denosumab also reduced the incidence of vertebral fracture. Medical records must include history and physical exam clearly documenting above indications and why Zometa cannot be used. The NDC for the drug requested must be listed on the request.

Xgeva Policy: Arkansas Medicaid requires that Xgeva be filed under J0897 on a paper claim with the drug name and dose. Xgeva is only approved for prevention of skeletal-related events in patients with bone metastases from breast and prostate cancer and solid tumors. Xgeva is not indicated for the prevention of skeletal-related events in patients with multiple myeloma. Xgeva requires documentation in the medical record of the rationale for why Zometa was not used. A complete history and physical exam documenting the type of cancer and what chemotherapy is prescribed is required to be in the medical record. The NDC for the drug requested must be listed on the request.

NOTE: Ipilmumab is indicated for the treatment of unresectable or metastatic melanoma. It should be given every 3 weeks for a total of four doses. Liver function tests, thyroid function tests, and clinical chemistries must be monitored before each dose. The genetic test for BRAF V600E mutation should be done on all patients to determine whether they are candidates for Zelboraf. If positive for the mutation, the patient should first be given a trial of Zelboraf. If the patient fails the trial or does not have the mutation, then they should be considered for Ipilmumab. Ipilmumab should only be prescribed by physicians who are prepared to treat immune mediated complications. Participation in the risk evaluation and mitigation program is essential. Use of Ipilmumab requires a detailed history and physical exam including all previous treatments and clear documentation that the melanoma is not treatable by surgery or has metastasized. Patients considered for treatment with Ipilmumab should be at least 18 years old and have a life expectancy of at least 4 months and have previously been treated with either dacarbazine, temozolomide, carboplatin or interleukin-2. If not treated first with one of these drugs, a detailed letter of medical necessity documenting the reasons for not treating the patient with one of these drugs first is required.

Section II Prosthetics
242.401 National Drug Codes (NDCs) 11-1-15

Effective for claims with dates of service on or after January 1, 2008, Arkansas Medicaid implemented billing protocol per the Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005. This explains policy and billing protocol for providers that submit claims for drug HCPCS/CPT codes with dates of service on and after January 1, 2008.

The Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 mandates that Arkansas Medicaid require the submission of National Drug Codes (NDCs) on claims submitted with Health Care Common Procedure Coding System, Level I I/Current Procedural Terminology, 4"^ edition (HCPCS/CPT) codes for drugs administered. The purpose of this requirement is to assure that the State Medicaid Agencies obtain a rebate from those manufacturers who have signed a rebate agreement with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

A. Covered Labelers

Arkansas Medicaid, by statute, will only pay for a drug procedure billed with an NDC when the pharmaceutical labeler of that drug is a covered labeler with Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). A "covered labeler" is a pharmaceutical manufacturer that has entered into a federal rebate agreement with CMS to provide each State a rebate for products reimbursed by Medicaid Programs. A covered labeler is identified by the first 5 digits of the NDC. To assure a product is payable for administration to a Medicaid beneficiary, compare the labeler code (the first 5 digits of the NDC) to the list of covered labelers which is maintained on the website at https://arkansas.maqellanrx.com/provider/documents/.

A complete listing of "Covered Labelers" is located on the website. See Diagram 1 for an example of this screen. The effective date is when a manufacturer entered into a rebate agreement with CMS. The Labeler termination date indicates that the manufacturer no longer participates in the federal rebate program and therefore the products cannot be reimbursed by Arkansas Medicaid on or after the termination date.

Diagram 1

Click here to view image

In order for a claim with drug HCPCS/CPT codes to be eligible for payment, the detail date of service must be prior to the NDC termination date. The NDC termination date represents the shelf-life expiration date of the last batch produced, as supplied on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) quarterly update. The date is supplied to CMS by the drug manufacturer/distributor.

Arkansas Medicaid will deny claim details with drug HCPCS/CPT codes with a detail date of service equal to or greater than the NDC termination date.

When completing a Medicaid claim for administering a drug, indicate the HIPAA standard 11-digit NDC with no dashes or spaces. The 11-digit NDC is comprised of three segments or codes: a 5-digit labeler code, a 4-digit product code and a 2-digit package code. The 10-digit NDC assigned by the FDA printed on the drug package must be changed to the 11-digit format by inserting a leading zero in one of the three segments. Below are examples of the FDA assigned NDC on a package changed to the appropriate 11-digit HIPAA standard format. Diagram 2 displays the labeler code as five digits with leading zeros; the product code as four digits with leading zeros; the package code as two digits without leading zeros, using the " 5-4-2 " format.

NDCs submitted in any configuration other than the 11-digit format will be rejected/denied. NDCs billed to Medicaid for payment must use the 11-digit format without dashes or spaces between the numbers.

See Diagram 3 for sample NDCs as they might appear on drug packaging and the corresponding format which should be used for billing Arkansas Medicaid:

B. Drug Procedure Code (HCPCS/CPT) to NDC Relafionship and Billing Principles

HCPCS/CPT codes and any modifiers will continue to be billed per the policy for each procedure code. However, the NDC and NDC quantity of the administered drug is now also required for correct billing of drug HCPCS/CPT codes. To maintain the integrity of the drug rebate program, it is important that the specific NDC from the package used at the time of the procedure be recorded for billing. HCPCS/CPT codes submitted using invalid NDCs or NDCs that were unavailable on the date of service will be rejected/denied. We encourage you to enlist the cooperation of all staff members involved in drug administration to assure collection or notation of the NDC from the actual package used. It is not recommended that billing of NDCs be based on a reference list, as NDCs vary from one labeler to another, from one package size to another, and from one time period to another.

Exception: There is no requirement for an NDC when billing for vaccines, radiopharmaceuticals and allergen immunotherapy.

II. Claims Filing

The HCPCS/CPT codes billing units and the NDC quantity do not always have a one-to-one relationship.

Example 1: The HCPCS/CPT code may specify up to 75 mg of the drug whereas the NDC quantity is typically billed in units, milliliters or grams. If the patient is provided 2 oral tablets, one at 25 mg and one at 50 mg, the HCPCS/CPT code unit would be 1 (1 total of 75 mg) in the example whereas the NDC quantity would be 1 each (1 unit of the 25 mg tablet and 1 unit of the 50 mg tablet). See Diagram 4.

Diagram 4

Example 2: If the drug in the example is an injection of 5 ml (or cc) of a product that was 50 mg per 10 ml of a 10 ml single-use vial, the HCPCS/CPT code unit would be 1 (1 unit of 25 mg) whereas the NDC quantity would be 5 (5 ml). In this example, 5 ml or 25 mg would be documented as wasted. See Diagram 5.

A. Electronic Claims Filing - 837P (Professional) and 8371 (Outpatient)

Procedure codes that do not require paper billing may be billed electronically. Any procedure codes that have required modifiers in the past will continue to require modifiers.

Arkansas Medicaid requires providers using Provider Electronic Solutions (PES) to use the required NDC format when billing HCPCS/CPT codes for administered drugs.

B. Paper Claims Filing-CMS-1500

Arkansas Medicaid will require providers billing drug HCPCS/CPT codes including covered unlisted drug procedure codes to use the required NDC fonnat.

See Diagram 6 for CMS-1500.

For professional claims, CMS-1500, list the qualifier of "N4", the 11-digit NDC, the unit of measure qualifier (F2 - International Unit; GR - Gram; ML - Milliliter; UN - Unit), and the number of units of the actual NDC administered in the shaded area above detail field 24A, spaced and arranged exactly as in Diagram 6.

Each NDC when billed under the same procedure code on the same date of service is defined as a "sequence." When billing a single HCPCS/CPT code with multiple NDCs as detail sequences, the first sequence should reflect the total charges in detail field 24F and total HCPCS/CPT code units in detail field 24G. Each subsequent sequence number should show zeros in detail fields 24F and 24G. See Detail 1, sequence 2 in Diagram 6.

The quantity of the NDC will be the total number of units billed for each specific NDC. See Diagram 6, first detail, sequences 1 and 2. Detail 2 is a Procedure Code that does not require an NDC. Detail 3, sequence 1 gives an example where only one NDC is associated with the HCPCS/CPT code.

Diagram 6

Procedure Code/NDC Detail Attachment Form-DMS-664

For drug HCPCS/CPT codes requiring paper billing (i.e., for manual review), complete every field of the DMS-664 "Procedure Code/NDC Detail Attachment Form." Attach this form and any other required documents to your claim when submitting it for processing. See Diagram 7 for an example of the completed form. Section V of the provider manual includes this form.

Diagram 7

Ill. Adjustments

Paper adjustments for paid claims filed with NDC numbers will not be accepted. Any original claim will have to be voided and a replacement claim will need to be filed. Providers have the option of adjusting a paper or electronic claim electronically.

IV. Remittance Advices

Only the first sequence in a detail will be displayed on the remittance advice reflecting either the total amount paid or the denial EOB(s) for the detail.

V. Record Retention

£ach provider must retain all records for five (5) years from the date of service or until all audit questions, dispute or review issues, appeal hearings, investigations or administrative/judicial litigation to which the records may relate are concluded, whichever period is longer.

At times, a manufacturer may question the invoiced amount, which results in a drug rebate dispute. If this occurs, you may be contacted requesting a copy of your office records to include documentation pertaining to the billed HCPCS/CPT code. Requested records may include NDC invoices showing purchase of drugs and documentation showing what drug (name, strength and amount) was administered and on what date, to the beneficiary in question

242.402 Billing of Multi-Use and Single-Use Vials 11-1-15

Arkansas Medicaid follows the billing protocol per the Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 for drugs.

Effective for claims with dates of sen/ice on or after January 1, 2008, Arkansas Medicaid implemented billing protocol per the Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005. This explains policy and billing protocol for providers that submit claims for drug HCPCS/CPT codes with dates of service on and after January 1, 2008.

The Federal Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 mandates that Arkansas Medicaid require the submission of National Drug Codes (NDCs) on claims submitted with Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System, Level ll/Current Procedural Terminology, 4'^ edition (HCPCS/CPT) codes for drugs administered. The purpose of this requirement is to assure that the State Medicaid Agencies obtain a rebate from those manufacturers who have signed a rebate agreement with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

Arkansas Medicaid will require providers using Provider Electronic Solutions (PES) to use the required NDC format when billing HCPCS/CPT codes for administered drugs.

B. Paper Claims Filing - CMS-1500

Arkansas Medicaid will require providers billing drug HCPCS/CPT codes including covered unlisted drug procedure codes to use the required NDC format.

See Diagram 6 for CMS-1500.

CMS-1500

For professional claims, CMS-1500, list the qualifier of "N4", the 11 -digit NDC, the unit of measure qualifier (F2 - International Unit; GR - Gram; ML - Milliliter; UN - Unit), and the number of units of the actual NDC administered in the shaded area above detail field 24A, spaced and arranged exactly as in Diagram 6.

Each NDC, when billed under the same procedure code on the same date of service is defined as a "sequence." When billing a single HCPCS/CPT code with multiple NDCs as detail sequences, the first sequence should reflect the total charges in detail field 24F and total HCPCS/CPT code units in detail field 24G. Each subsequent sequence number should show zeros in detail fields 24F and 24G. See Detail 1, sequence 2 in Diagram 6.

The quantity of the NDC will be the total number of units billed for each specific NDC. See Diagram 6, first detail, sequences 1 and 2. Detail 2 is a Procedure Code that does not require an NDC. Detail 3, sequence 1 gives an example where only one NDC is associated with the HCPCS/CPT code.

Procedure Code/NDC Detail Attachment Form- DMS-664

For drug HCPCS/CPT codes requiring paper billing (i.e., for manual review), complete every field of the DMS-664 "Procedure Code/NDC Detail Attachment Form." Attach this form and any other required documents to your claim when submitting it for processing. See Diagram 7 for an example of the completed form. Section V of the provider manual includes this form.

Complete instructions for accurate completion of form DMS-664 (including indication of required attachments) accompany the form. All forms are listed and accessible in Section V of each Provider Manual.

III. Adjustments

Paper adjustments for paid claims filed with NDC numbers will not be accepted. Any original claim will have to be voided and a replacement claim will need to be filed. Providers have the option of adjusting a paper or electronic claim electronically.

IV. Remittance Advices

Only the first sequence in a detail will be displayed on the remittance advice reflecting either the total amount paid or the denial EOB(s) for the detail.

V. Record Retention

Each provider must retain all records for five (5) years from the date of service or until all audit questions, dispute or review issues, appeal hearings, investigations or administrative/judicial litigation to which the records may relate are concluded, whichever period is longer.

At times, a manufacturer may question the invoiced amount, which results in a drug rebate dispute. If this occurs, you may be contacted requesting a copy of your office records to include documentation pertaining to the billed HCPCS/CPT code. Requested records may include NDC invoices showing purchase of drugs and documentation showing what drug (name, strength and amount) was administered and on what date, to the beneficiary in question.

See Section 252.100 for additional information regarding drug code billing.
