Prescription Drug Lookup Tool

Alaska Medicaid’s new Drug Lookup Tool, provided through Magellan Rx Management, is designed to assist Medicaid providers with general coverage status of drugs. Visit Alaska Medicaid Drug Lookup for more information. Final coverage determinations are made during claims adjudication; Drug Lookup does not provide cost limit, authorization, or service limit information.

Medicaid Budget Status: Pended Payments NOT Anticipated

Based on claims projections for the last 8 weeks of the fiscal year, the Department of Health and Social Services anticipates that budget-pended payments will NOT be necessary. In the unlikely event it is necessary to delay some payments, no action will be taken without adequate notification by the department via remittance advice message.

Emergency Room Behavioral Health Hold Extended

Alaska Medicaid's temporary expanded coverage for behavioral health observation bed services has been extended through 09/30/2020, terminating effective 10/01/2020. Billing requirements remain the same, and reimbursement continues to be limited to 120 hours per hold.

Alaska Responders Relief Line – 844.985.8275

Recognizing the unique stressors that providers face, the Division of Behavioral Health has established a 24/7 support line, 844.985.8275, for healthcare and behavioral professionals impacted by COVID personally and professionally. Staff supporting the call line recognize callers are often first responders and will allows callers to openly express their experiences and feelings serving Alaskans impacted by COVID. This service is also available to immediate family members of first responders who may be experiencing stress, anxiety and other hard to label emotions as a result of their loved one engaging on the front lines.

Medicaid 1135 Waiver

Medicaid 1135 Waiver Status

On 04/02/2020, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services approved, in part, the Department of Health and Social Services' (DHSS) Medicaid 1135 Waiver request. DHSS will implement approved waiver provisions on an as needed basis, and will notify providers of the effective date of each change. Until DHSS notification is issued, services provided under waiver provisions will not be covered. Because RA messages are issued weekly, and changes are occurring on a daily basis, notices will be published on the Alaska Medicaid Health Enterprise home page as approved waivers are implemented.
