When the LIP application is released it will also include narrative instructions and a process map for LIPs and/or Group/Outpatient Practices to follow.
In keeping with the N.C. Medicaid Special Bulletin, eligibility for providers/practitioners to join the network is based on having submitted claims for Medicaid services provided to consumers with Medicaid originating from Mecklenburg County during the 60 days prior to submitting an application. If a provider is actively serving consumers with Medicaid originating from Mecklenburg County and has not submitted claims for those consumers during the 60 days prior to submitting their application, the provider must show evidence of actively serving those consumers. Additionally, providers should not view this as an opportunity to expand their service array. MeckLINK Behavioral Healthcare will only approve and contract for the services a provider has submitted claims for during the sixty (60) days prior to application or is actively providing to consumers with Medicaid originating from Mecklenburg County.
