Hospital Billing
In the Dallas SA, SSI clients are subject to mandatory enrollment in Medicaid managed care through the NorthSTAR Program. In some instances, general acute care hospitals treat a NorthSTAR client with a primary behavioral health diagnosis. In that instance, the general acute care hospital needs to seek authorization and reimbursement from ValueOptions using the CMS‑1500 form for outpatient services and UB-04 CMS-1450 for inpatient services.
