How to Comply with Rhode Island Medicaid Legislation

By Kate O'Kelly  |  March 11, 2013

The ISO ClaimSearch Medicaid Reporting Service helps you comply with Rhode Island’s new Medical Assistance Intercept Act. The legislation requires all insurers that write workers' compensation or liability policies in the state to participate in a data match program called the Medical Assistance Intercept System (MAIS). The program recovers and intercepts Medicaid payments that the agency issues on behalf of Medicaid recipients if an insurer pays a claim.

ISO worked with the insurance industry and the Rhode Island Executive Office of Health and Human Services to create the new reporting service, which is free to ISO ClaimSearch® member companies. All you need to do is report your claims to ISO ClaimSearch as usual using Universal Format. The service handles the MAIS reporting for you.
