Billing Medicaid Members

January 25, 2017

Appointment, interest and carrying charges: MAD does not cover penalties on payments for broken or missed appointments, costs of waiting time, or interest or carrying charges on accounts.

A provider may not bill a MAP eligible recipient or his or her authorized representative for these charges or the penalties associated with missed or broken appointments or failure to produce eligibility cards, with the exception of MAP recipient eligibility categories of CHIP or WDI who may be charged up to $5 for a missed appointment.
