Policy Updates

Cotiviti COB Payment Update

Thank you for your continued partnership with Ambetter of Tennessee. As you know, we are committed to continuously evaluating and improving overall Payment Integrity solutions as required by State and Federal governing entities. We are writing today to inform you of an additional review that went into place as of 11/1/2023.

Description of Changes:

Ambetter claims will be reviewed for coordination of benefits by Cotiviti. Providers will begin seeing correspondence from Cotiviti when these claims are identified as being incorrectly paid for members with other primary coverage. Instructions for next steps and how to outreach for additional information will be included in the letters that Cotiviti will send to the providers.

Quality and Risk - Did You Know?

Did you know that providers can cash in on incentive bonuses by closing care gaps and submitting appointment agendas? You are already taking great care of our members! Please take advantage of these bonus dollars to expand your resources and provide an enhanced member experience. 

Learn more about our quality incentive (P4P) and risk adjustment (Continuity of Care) programs as well as numerous HEDIS pocket guides and tip sheets by clicking the links under “Quality Improvement/Risk Adjustment” on our Provider Resource webpage.

Did you attend Ambetter Health Day? 

Ambetter Health Days were held in Nashville (August) and Memphis (September). These events were opportunities for Ambetter of Tennessee to impact several priority metrics and elevate brand awareness, therefore positively increasing the overall retention and acquisition of members within Tennessee. We were able to showcase the resources and benefits of the health plan by educating members on services and providers, while also collaborating with several vendors and external partners to provide the best possible member experience overall.

 "The event was phenomenal. I was blown away with all that Ambetter offered me."- Ms. Alice F.
