Tailored Plan launch has been moved from Dec. 1, 2022, until Apr. 1, 2023. More information will be shared with providers soon.
if you are currently contracted with Trillium, you may also need to research contracting with at least one of the Standard Plan PHPs; after July 1, 2021, if a member has been placed on the Standard Plan providers will no longer be able to bill Trillium for services.
PROVIDER CONTRACTING REMINDERS
Trillium will start sharing information soon with providers about changes to come in the contracts, both the services included and processes such as credentialing.
TAILORED PLAN PROVIDER CONTRACT
In anticipation of Tailored Plan launch expected to occur on December 1, 2022, and to ensure Trillium will meet the Network Adequacy requirements, Trillium will begin issuing the NCDHHS approved Tailored Plan Procurement Contract (“TP Provider Contract”) to its fully contracted providers in June 2022. The effective date of the TP Provider Contract will be December 1, 2022, and providers will continue serving Trillium members under the terms and conditions of their current procurement contract until that time.
Per NCDHHS, there is a 90-day Opt-Out period from when you receive the new Tailored Plan contract. However, a quicker response is desired and will assist Trillium to ensure network adequacy.
Rejecting participation in any program shall not have any impact upon the provider’s ability to continue participation under other programs, and any questions can be submitted to Provider Contracting Questions and Feedback
In an effort to aid in the review of the terms and conditions that will be changing, we created a Quick Reference Guide. While this guide does not capture every edit, it does highlight changes that have the potential to increase provider issues for meeting contracting requirements, service delivery, claims, and reimbursement.
Please forward any questions regarding the TP Provider Contract or the contracting process to TP Provider Contracting Questions and Feedback or call the Provider Support Services Line at 1-855-250-1539.
Note: The contract template is subject to change as the Department issues additional guidance. Trillium will communicate such changes in a Trillium Network Communication Bulletin and incorporate the changes, when applicable, in an addendum. Additionally, while some of the language can be negotiated, most of the revised language is required by the Department to be verbatim.
