Payments will be made to the provider through the department's Medicaid MMIS contractor.
(2) Providers must accept the amounts payable under this subchapter as payment in full for services delivered to eligible individuals.
(3) The provisions of ARM 37.85.407 apply with respect to third party resources and seeking payment from those sources. Providers are responsible for due diligence to identify and bill other payment sources.

(5) The department may collect from a provider any payment under this subchapter as provided with respect to Medicaid overpayments in ARM 37.85.406(9) through (10)(b).
(6) The department may recover overpayments by withholding or offset as provided in ARM 37.85.513(1).
(7) Services delivered to individuals experiencing a crisis may not be reimbursed if:
(a) they are delivered to an individual within seven days following discharge from crisis stabilization services delivered by this or another provider;
(b) the services delivered were not approved for reimbursement by the department; or
(c) the provider is not enrolled with the department.
(8) If reimbursement is denied because services were delivered to an individual within seven days following discharge from crisis stabilization services delivered by another provider, the provider may request a review to determine whether payment is warranted.

Box 202905, Helena, MT 59620-2905 within 30 days after the date of a notice denying a claim.

(b) the crisis stabilization services are for a condition that could not have been treated during the previous crisis stabilization plan; or
(c) the provider could not have discovered the previous stabilization plan using due diligence.
