Important Updates

Effective February 2020: HealthCheck Other Services information

Effective October 1, 2019: These codes were added to the Together with CCHP's non-covered list: 0084U, 0085U, 0086U, 0087U, 0088U, 0089U, 0090U, 0091U, 0092U, 0093U, 0094U, 0095U, 0096U, 0097U, 0098U, 0099U, 0100U, 0101U, 0102U, 0103U, 0104U, 0543T, 0544T, 0545T, 0546T, 0547T, 0548T, 0549T, 0550T, 0551T, 0552T, 0553T, 0554T, 0555T, 0556T, 0557T, 0558T, 0559T, 0560T, 0561T, 0562T, C9756


Children’s Community Health Plan will require Day Treatment authorizations (H2012) to be separated by the levels of care - Partial Hospitalization Program and Intensive Outpatient Program. They will no longer be reviewed under the same episode effective September 1, 2019.

Providers will need to create and submit the separate episodes into the CareWeb Qi Authorization Tool.

Previously, providers could request one level of care and if the member stepped up or down in care the provider notified CCHP in the same episode. 

This is being implemented to simplify the requests. This will help the utilization management team review authorizations when members are frequently moving from one day treatment level of care to another or for members who may have multiple changes in diagnosis throughout their participation in day treatment. It will also allow the providers to submit a claim after each level of care rather than requiring the provider wait until the member completes all levels of day treatment before submitting a claim.


Effective July 1, 2019: These codes were added to the Together with CCHP's non-covered list: J7318, J7320, J7321, J7322, J7323, J7324, J7325, J7326, J7327, J7328 and J7329.

Effective July 1, 2019: The Specialty Medications codes J7318 and J7329 were added to BadgerCare Plus prior authorization list.


The following changes were made to HCPCS code E0156, for a walker's seat:
This code was removed from Together with CCHP's Non-covered code list and moved to Together with CCHP's Prior Authorization List. This code will require authorization only if the retail cost for the code on the claim is $500 or greater. 


Effective on June 1, 2019- These codes were added to Together with CCHP's Non-covered code list: G2001, G2002, G2003, G2004, G2005, G2006, G2007, G2008, G2009, G2013, G2014, and G2015.

Effective April 29, 2019- CCHP has added a new authorization request status to the CareWebQI Authorization Tool. The Status of voidedcan be found in the Authorization Queue under the status column of the Summary of Submitted Requests.

Voided means that CCHP has not reviewed the authorization request and the request is being returned to the provider’s attention for resubmission.
An authorization request will be voided for the following reasons:

  • Requesting and/or Attending Provider is listed as "Unknown, Provider"
  • Invalid diagnosis code type selected (ICD-10 only)
  • Invalid diagnosis (ICD-10) code entered
  • Invalid procedure/service/item code type selected (CPT/HCPCS only)
  • Invalid procedure/service/item code (CPT/HCPCS) code entered

Please open and review the authorization request for a message explaining why the authorization was voided.  Please note that voided requests cannot be resubmitted. Providers will need to create a new authorization request.

When creating an authorization you should not choose unknown for requesting provider or attending provider. If the providers name does not appear when searching then build this authorization using the facility in these spots. Then tell us the providers name in the “Are there any other details?” field. If you use unknown provider this authorization will be voided and you will receive a message that you will have to resubmit.

NICU NotificationEffective June 1, 2018, providers need to create a separate authorization for NICU.  Providers should create an authorization with the mother's ID for the baby's information. In the notes section, the provider enters the baby's date of birth, weight, gestational age, and documentation. CCHP will then create an episode with the baby temp ID and send you notification of new episode number via CareWeb message system in the original episode created using the mother's information. When looking to add clinical or verification of authorization please reference newly created baby episode as original NICU notification episode will have been canceled. Due to system constraints, CCHP will continue to use the temporary ID for the baby through the entire hospital stay. The baby will not be assigned a permanent ID until after discharge. When the baby is discharged, please make sure to message the Utilization Management reviewer by attaching clinical and messaging the discharge date.  Please make sure to choose the right admission date and check to see the authorization was submitted. CCHP has created this guide to help providers submit this notification.
