Amida Care’s Quality Incentive and Viral Load Suppression (VLS) Program: Advancing Payments to Providers
Through Amida Care’s Quality Incentive and Viral Load Suppression (VLS) programs, Amida Care and our providers demonstrate a shared commitment to providing high-quality care to Amida Care members and helping those who are living with HIV to get and stay virally suppressed.
Despite these troubled times, we have had great success in achieving these goals. Amida Care has advanced payments totaling $1.5M to our partners for their outstanding work in 2019, representing a 68% VLS rate. We thank our partners who have participated and collaborated with Amida Care in this shared success! Read more here
Important: Mandatory Compliance Program Certification
As per the Office of Medicaid Inspector General (OMIG) requirement, Medicaid providers adopting and maintaining an effective compliance program will attest to this as part of their annual “Certification Statement for Provider Billing Medicaid.” This annual certification shall occur on the anniversary date of the provider’s enrollment in Medicaid, which can be found on your initial Medicaid enrollment welcome letter. Additionally, each year, approximately 45-60 days before the anniversary of a provider’s enrollment, the NYS Department of Health (NYSDOH) sends by mail a package of information and materials to providers, which includes the Certification of Statement for Provider Billing Medicaid Form and instructions on how to submit the form.
Amida Care is required to keep a copy of our Participating Providers annual “Certification Statement for Provider Billing Medicaid”. Once you have completed your certification, kindly provide Amida Care a copy of your notice of certification via email to: Medicaidcertificationstatement@amidacareny.org
Amida Care now offers a viral load suppression member incentive program, Live Your Life Undetectable. The program provides your patients who are enrolled with Amida Care with a financial incentive of $100 for each quarter (three-month period) of demonstrated viral load suppression (<200 copies/ml) along with their participation in supportive services like case management or other provider-recommended medication adherence supports.
We greatly value and appreciate your partnership and alignment with our goal of improved patient health. For more details, please see the Live Your Life Undetectable tab at the top of the Provider Resources page.
