Training Overview Description

This session will give you a broad overview of Alaska Medicaid member eligibility as well as how providers can check eligibility. The presentation, which is part of the Alaska Medicaid provider training available from Conduent, is a broad overview for providers of member eligibility. We will discuss:

  • Who determines member eligibility.
  • Member eligibility factors – including eligibility codes and resource codes.
  • Ways that Alaska Medicaid providers can check member eligibility – including some of the pros and cons of each of the methods
  • Atypical eligibility types – including hospital presumptive eligibility, care management, and backdated and retroactive eligibilities.
  • How member eligibility can affect provider billing.
  • Member eligibility-related resources for providers – including the member handbook, phone numbers, and online tools.

If you have ever had a claim or service authorization deny due to member eligibility issues, this presentation may be for you! Knowing how to check member eligibility and understand the information you find is key to being more efficient in billing and arranging service authorizations. This presentation will give you information and resources to better understand working with Alaska Medicaid.
