Sec. 1.

(a) Medicaid records must be of sufficient quality to fully disclose and document the extent of services provided to individuals receiving assistance under the provisions of the Indiana Medicaid program.
(b) All providers participating in the Indiana Medicaid program shall maintain, for a period of seven (7) years from the date Medicaid services are provided, such medical or other records, or both, including x-rays, as are necessary to fully disclose and document the extent of the services provided to individuals receiving assistance under the provisions of the Indiana Medicaid program. A copy of a claim form that has been submitted by the provider for reimbursement is not sufficient documentation, in and of itself, to comply with this requirement. Providers must maintain records that are independent of claims for reimbursement. Such medical or other records, or both, shall include, at the minimum, the following information and documentation:
(1) The identity of the individual to whom service was rendered.
(2) The identity of the provider rendering the service.
(3) The identity and position of the provider employee rendering the service, if applicable.
(4) The date on which the service was rendered.
(5) The diagnosis of the medical condition of the individual to whom service was rendered, relevant to physicians and dentists only.
(6) A detailed statement describing services rendered.
(7) The location at which services were rendered.
(8) The amount claimed through the Indiana Medicaid program for each specific service rendered.
(9) Written evidence of physician involvement and personal patient evaluation will be required to document the acute medical needs. A current plan of treatment and progress notes, as to the necessity and effectiveness of treatment, must be attached to the prior authorization request and available for audit purposes.
(10) When a recipient is enrolled in therapy, and when required under Medicaid program rules, physician progress notes as to the necessity and effectiveness of therapy and ongoing evaluations to assess progress and redefine goals must be a part of the therapy program.
