Continuous Enrollment example—must be enrolled 14 of the 15 months after the first month through the end of 15th month old birthday month:
Ex: Born any day in the month of Jan 2011- doesn’t need to be enrolled in Jan but does need to be enrolled for all but one of the following months: Feb 11, Mar 11, Apr 11, May 11, Jun 11, Jul 11, Aug, Sep, Oct, Nov 11, Dec 11, Jan 12, Feb 12, Mar 12, Apr 12
PLEASE check your provider specialty codes in CHCS to ensure the proper codes are assigned
A major medical center found several of their pediatric residents had the specialty code of 010 for internal medicine residents without a licence instead of 039, pediatric resident without a license
This was discovered at San Diego, but data reveals a lot of 010 encounters in pediatric clinic at NNMC
Any of these codes in a PCP encounter excluding inpatient or ER settings:
ICD9: V20.2, V20.3, V70.0, V70.3, V70.5, V70.6, V70.8, V70.9
