Local to National Crosswalk Related Bulletins

This listing includes the effort over the past year to move local codes to national codes as pertinent to HIPAA compliance.

Please note that the crosswalks attached to the Bulletin list the local codes that were cross-walked to a national code.

Local codes that were end dated with no crosswalk to a national code may also be listed in the Medical Assistance Bulletin and/or Public Notice.

Please note that the effective date noted on this listing indicates the DATE OF SERVICE for which the national codes would be submitted for claims purposes. For dates of service prior to the effective date, the local codes would still be used to submit the claims. If prior authorizations were issued for services that listed the local codes, the services should continue to be submitted using the local codes.

Since the codes were grouped into related services sets, a provider may need to search through several bulletins and attachments to find the sets that contain services related to their practice. For example, Healthy Beginnings Plus relates to multiple providers including Certified Registered Nurse Practitioners (CRNP) as well as a separate Bulletin related to other CRNP services.
