Hospital Presumptive Eligibility QP Webinar

Hospital Presumptive Eligibility QP Webinar

Sign up now for the September 18, 2014, Hospital Presumptive Eligibility Qualified Provider Training

The Hospital Presumptive Eligibility (HPE) process allows acute care hospitals to make presumptive eligibility determinations so that certain eligibility groups can receive temporary healthcare coverage under the Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP) until official eligibility can be determined. The HPE process allows IHCP providers (not just hospitals) to be reimbursed for covered services provided during this temporary period. For more information about the HPE process, see the Hospital Presumptive Eligibility web page on this site.

Acute care hospitals are encouraged to have representatives participate in "Hospital Presumptive Eligibility Qualified Provider Training," an online webinar scheduled for September 18, 2014, 10 - 11:30 a.m. Although this webinar will not be the only HPE training session offered, it is the next available opportunity to receive the training necessary to become a qualified provider (QP). Representatives from eligible hospitals can register for the webinar from the Workshop Registration page on this site by September 16, 2014. Note: When registering, be sure to include the hospital's National Provider Identifier (NPI), so the IHCP can activate the hospital's QP status after the training.

Hospitals participating in the training webinar are still required to complete the enrollment application and attestation online through Web interChange to enroll as QPs for HPE. Webinar attendance will be verified before activating a hospital's QP status. Acute care hospitals unable to participate but still interested in becoming an HPE QP can complete the enrollment and attestation online. They will then be scheduled for the required training at a later date.
