Alert #05-5


New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH)

School/Preschool Supportive Health Services Program (SSHSP/PSHSP)

Medicaid in Education Unit

Issue #05-5

TO:                      All SSHSP/PSHSP Medicaid Providers


FROM:                NYSDOH SSHSP/PSHSP Medicaid in Education Unit


DATE:                 September 30, 2005




This alert is to inform all SSHSP and PSHSP providers that on 9/23/05 CNYRIC posted one remittance data file for Cycles 1443-1461 on your Web report site.  You now have remittance reports for every file received from eMedNY (DOH Medicaid Processing System) and one inclusive remittance data file (labeled “rmitdata”).


In addition, due to the changes in the remittance data file format, CNYRIC removed rejected records from the remittance processing.  You will now receive a separate file, labeled “clmrject,” for each billing cycle containing rejected records.  CNYRIC has so far posted rejected records files for each of the following 2005 billing dates: 3/7, 4/4, 5/9, 6/7, 7/15, 8/12 and 9/18.


Due to changing to an electronic-only remittance file format at the end of March 2005, eMedNY has had a problem with the creation and transmission of the remittance data to CNYRIC.  CNYRIC will continue to work with eMedNY on this remittance issue as it has been determined that not all remittance transaction information has been received to date.  As soon as CNYRIC has any additional data, remittance reports and files will be prepared and posted to your Web Reports.



For any questions/comments regarding this alert, please contact your Regional Information Center representative or your New York State Department of Health Medicaid in Education representative.
