Nurse Home Visitor Program Billing Manual

Return to Billing Manuals Web Page

The Nurse Home Visitor Program (NHVP) is a program available to first-time pregnant women or women whose first child is less than one month old and who are at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. ("First-time" is defined as no previous live birth; Health First Colorado (Colorado's Medicaid Program) only reimburses for services for Health First Colorado-eligible members.) Participating sites must be certified by the Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS) as NHVP providers.

Reimbursement for targeted case management (TCM) services is available through this program when provided to Health First Colorado-eligible women who are pregnant with their first child (or have had no previous live birth), and the mother and child up to the child's 2nd birthday.

Nurse Home Visitor Program providers must be enrolled as Health First Colorado providers in order to receive Health First Colorado reimbursement for TCM activities. Reimbursement is provided on a fee-for-service (FFS) basis. Fee-for-service reimbursement for TCM services provided by an NHVP provider is also available for members enrolled in a managed care program. Providers should refer to the Code of Colorado Regulations, Program Rules (10 CCR 2505-10), for specific information regarding NHVP services.

Targeted Case Management Guidance

Targeted Case Management (TCM) includes four core activities:

  • Assessment of the first-time pregnant woman and her first child's needs for health, mental health, social services, education, housing, childcare and related services
  • Development of care plans to obtain the needed services
  • Referral to resources to obtain the needed services, including medical providers who provide care to a first-time pregnant woman and her first child
  • Routine monitoring and follow-up visits with the women where progress in obtaining the needed services is monitored, problem-solving assistance is provided and the care plans are revised to reflect the woman's and child's current needs

It is not necessary to provide all four components at every visit. However, in order to bill for TCM, at least one of the components must be provided to or on behalf of the member. The "member," in the context of this billing manual, refers to the Health First Colorado enrollee to whom or on behalf of whom the TCM is being provided. (For example, in the context of this billing manual, if/when the mother becomes ineligible for Health First Colorado, she is no longer a "member.")

 

Examples of TCM include:

  • Discussions with providers, school counselors, etc. about assessments, progress, referrals
  • Discussions with member's (mom or baby) family members about progress of the member, etc. (member can be present or not)
  • Communication with the mother about meeting the needs of the child
  • Time spent finding/researching appropriate referrals for a member based on assessments

Examples of services that are not TCM:

  • Direct care/services
  • Education
  • Driving to visits
  • Transporting the member
  • Case conferencing with other Nurse Home Visitors/supervisors not directly involved with the member
  • Billing activities and data entry
  • Time spent charting

When billing TCM for the mother using the mother's Health First Colorado ID, the TCM services provided must be directly related to assessment of the mother's needs, development of the mother's care plan, referrals to resources that will aid in meeting the needs of the mother, or routine monitoring and follow-up of the mother's progress in meeting her needs and achieving her goals.

 

When billing TCM for the child using the child's ID, the TCM services provided must be directly related to assessment of the child's needs, development of the child's care plan, referrals to resources that will aid in meeting the needs of the child, or routine monitoring and follow-up of the family's progress in meeting the identified needs of the child.

Documentation in Member Records

Every claim for TCM reimbursement must be supported by clear evidence in the member's record/chart. In order for TCM reimbursement to be claimed for any given member, date, or unit amount, corresponding evidence must exist in the member's record.

Elements that should be easily identifiable by an external reviewer include:

  • Evidence that at least one component of TCM was provided;
  • The Health First Colorado member to whom or on behalf of whom the TCM was provided (If the claim is billed using the child's Health First Colorado ID, the child's name must be evident on the record.);
  • The specific dates of service on which the TCM was rendered; and
  • The amount of time spent providing TCM (either an actual notation of time or a description of services comprehensive enough that time spent providing TCM could be accurately estimated).

 

The notations in the chart should support the number of units billed. For instance, if two units of TCM are billed but the only notation in the chart reads, "Referred member to WIC," that notation does not necessarily support the number of units billed. A more complete reference that may more fully support the number of billed units could be, "Spoke with member about quantity and variety of food in household, assessed member for adequate nutrition standards, referred member to WIC to meet nutrition needs."

Targeted Case Management services provided to or on behalf of the mother should be billed using the mother's Health First Colorado ID and the notations in the chart should support that the services were provided to or on behalf of the mother. Targeted Case Management services provided to or on behalf of the child should be billed using the child's Health First Colorado ID and evidence in the chart should support that the services were provided to or on behalf of the child. Services provided to or on behalf of the mother after she is no longer eligible for Health First Colorado are not billable to Health First Colorado and may not be billed using the child's Health First Colorado ID. For every claim submitted using the child's Health First Colorado ID, evidence in the chart supporting this claim and unit amount should specifically describe TCM services provided to or on behalf of the child.

Even if span billing is used (see the Span Billing section below), there must be evidence in the member's chart of specific services and specific dates of service.

Enrollment and Participation

Participating providers must be certified by the CDHS as NHVP providers. Nurse Home Visitor Program providers must meet established program training requirements, program protocols, program management information systems requirements, and program evaluation requirements for research-based model programs that have demonstrated significant reductions in: infant behavioral impairments, the number of reported incidents of child abuse and neglect, the number of subsequent pregnancies, receipt of public assistance, and criminal activity.

All NHVP services must be provided by a registered nurse. Nurse home visitors must be licensed as professional nurses pursuant to Article 38 of Title 12, C.R.S., or accredited by another state or voluntary agency that the state board of nursing has identified by rule pursuant to Section 12-38-108(1)(a), C.R.S., as one whose accreditation may be accepted in lieu of board approval. Nurse supervisors are required to be nurses with Master's degrees in nursing or public health, unless the implementing entity can demonstrate that such a person is either unavailable within the community or an appropriately qualified nurse without a Master's degree is available.

The rendering nurses must be enrolled as Health First Colorado providers, and the rendering nurses' NPI must be affiliated with the billing provider under which the NHVP claims are submitted.

Procedure/HCPCS Codes Overview

The codes used for submitting claims for services provided to Health First Colorado members represent services that are approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and services that may be provided by an enrolled Health First Colorado provider.

The Healthcare Common Procedural Coding System (HCPCS) is divided into two principal subsystems, referred to as level I and level II of the HCPCS.

Level I of the HCPCS is comprised of Current Procedural Terminology (CPT), a numeric coding system maintained by the American Medical Association (AMA).

The CPT is a uniform coding system consisting of descriptive terms and identifying codes that are used primarily to identify medical services and procedures furnished by physicians and other health care professionals.

Level II of the HCPCS is a standardized coding system that is used primarily to identify products, supplies, and services not included in the CPT codes, such as ambulance services and durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics, and supplies (DMEPOS) when used outside a physician's office. Level II codes are also referred to as alpha-numeric codes because they consist of a single alphabetical letter followed by four numeric digits, while CPT codes are identified using five numeric digits.

NHVP Procedure/Diagnosis Coding

NHVP Procedure Coding
Target Case Management services may be provided to, or on behalf of, the woman during the prenatal period and through the month of the first child's second birthday during any month in which the woman is Health First Colorado-eligible. Targeted Case Management services provided to, or on behalf of, the woman must be billed on a separate claim from TCM services provided to, or on behalf of, the child. The following procedure code may be billed for TCM services provided to, or on behalf of, the woman:

Code Description Prior Authorization
G9006 Coordinated care fee, home monitoring No PA

Targeted Case Management services may be provided to, or on behalf of, the child through the month of his/her second birthday during any month in which the child is Health First Colorado-eligible. Targeted Case Management services provided to, or on behalf of, the child must be billed on a separate claim from TCM services provided to, or on behalf of, the woman. The following procedure code may be billed for TCM services provided to, or on behalf of, the child:

 
Code Description Prior Authorization
T1017 Targeted case management, each 15 minutes No PA

Modifiers
All claims for TCM services provided through NHVP must include one of the procedure codes listed above plus the HD modifier, signifying that the services are part of a pregnant/parenting women’s program. Claims submitted without this modifier will be denied.

Back to Top

Maximum Allowable Units of Service
Reimbursement for TCM provided through NHVP is made on a per-unit basis, where one (1) unit is equal to fifteen (15) minutes. A maximum of fifteen (15) units of service will be reimbursed in any calendar month per mother/child couple. The maximum 15 units per calendar month may be divided between the mother and child if both are Health First Colorado-eligible in the same month.

The maximum 15 units of service may be provided in the home/off-site setting, in the office, or a combination of both home/off-site and office.

Time spent on TCM should be rounded to the nearest whole unit. For example, if 5 minutes of TCM are provided, no units may be billed. If 10 minutes of TCM are provided, 1 unit may be billed. If 23 minutes of TCM are provided, 2 units may be billed.

Back to Top

Place of Service
TCM Services in the Home or Off-Site Setting
Each NHVP provider agency has an agency-specific reimbursement rate for TCM services provided in the member’s home or other off-site setting (such as the member’s school, work, or any other location to which the nurse home visitor must travel). This agency-specific reimbursement rate includes a calculation to account for mileage costs. All TCM services provided at a location other than the NHVP provider office must be billed using Place of Service Code 12 (Home).

TCM Services in the Office Setting
All NHVP provider agencies are reimbursed the same rate for TCM services provided to, or on behalf of, the woman and/or the child when those services take place at the NHVP provider offices. All TCM services that take place at the office must be billed using a Place of Service Code other than 12, signifying that the services were rendered in a setting that did not require the nurse home visitor to travel. Alternative Place of Service Codes include but are not limited to 11 (Office), 50 (Federally Qualified Health Center – FQHC), and 72 (Rural Health Center – RHC).

Home/Off-Site TCM and Office TCM Provided on the Same Date of Service or Span*
If Home/Off-Site TCM and Office TCM are provided to a member on the same date of service or span, two line items must be used, each with the appropriate Place of Service code. Modifier HD should be used on both line items. Additionally, Modifier 76 ("Repeat procedure or service") must be used as the second modifier on the second line item. If Modifier 76 is not used on the second line item, the second line item will be denied as a duplicate. When the claim is processed, the MMIS suspects that a service is being duplicated when it identifies two line items with the same date of service or span and with the same procedure code, regardless of the difference in the place of service. Modifier 76 must be used on the second line item to signal that it is indeed a separate service from the first line item.
Example:

 

Home and Office TCM on Same Date Line 1 Line 2
2 units of Home TCM on 10/6/16
1 unit of Office TCM on 10/6/16
From Date:10/6/16
To Date: 10/6/16
Place of Service: 12
Units: 2
Modifier(s): HD
From Date: 10/6/16
To Date: 10/6/16
Place of Service: 11
Units: 1

Billing for Members with Commercial Insurance and Health First Colorado

Targeted case management services provided under the NHVP are exempt from commercial billing requirements. This means that when a member has both commercial insurance and Health First Colorado, NHVP providers are not required to submit claims to commercial payers prior to billing Health First Colorado.

Back to Top

Span Billing

Span billing is an alternative method for billing NHVP services. Span billing is a method of billing for one service provided to the same member over a period of time as one line item, rather than billing each encounter separately with individual dates of service. For instance, if TCM was provided to the same member on three different dates of service, a span of dates can be entered in the "From Date" field and the "To Date" field on one line item, rather than billing three line items for each separate date of service.

 

Examples:

Span Scenario 1 Line 1 Line 2
4 units of Home TCM on 10/2/16

5 units of Home TCM on 10/23/16

No Office TCM provided
From Date: 10/1/16 or 10/2/16

To Date: 10/23/16 or 10/31/16

Place of Service: 12

Units: 9

Modifier(s): HD
 
Span Scenario 2 Line 1 Line 2
2 units of Home TCM on 10/6/16

1 unit of Office TCM on 10/6/16

3 units of Home TCM on 10/16/16

2 units of Office TCM on 10/21/16
From Date:10/1/13 or 10/6/16

To Date: 10/21/13 or 10/31/16

Place of Service: 12

Units: 5

Modifier(s): HD
From Date: 10/1/16 or 10/6/16

To Date: 10/21/16 or 10/31/16

Place of Service: 11

Units: 3

Modifier(s): HD + 76

The span "From Date" and the span "To Date" should be within the same month (10/1/16 – 10/31/16; not 10/15/16 – 11/15/16).

No other claims for that member for that service with dates of service within the span can be processed once the span claim has been submitted. If additional units of the service need to be billed during the span dates after the original span claim has been submitted, the original span claim must be adjusted to add the units. A new claim with the additional units cannot be processed.
