Certifying Share of Cost Benefits and Coverage

Thursday, Oct. 13th 2011 6:37 AM

Subscribers are not eligible to receive Medi-Cal benefits until their monthly Share of Cost dollar amount has been certified online. Certifying SOC means that the Medi-Cal eligibility verification system shows the subscriber has paid or become obligated for the entire monthly dollar SOC amount owed. Claims submitted for services rendered to a subscriber whose SOC is not certified through the Medi-Cal eligibility verification system will be denied. Exception:    Share of Cost is certified differently for Long Term Care (LTC) subscribers with specific aid codes. To avoid duplicate billing, Hospice providers must indicate the SOC on the UB-04 claim when billing for hospice room and board (revenue code 658) if the SOC was not already met on a Payment Request for Long Term Care (25-1) claim.
