The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act ((H.R. 3590) Section 6507 (Mandatory State Use of National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI)) requires State Medicaid programs to incorporate “NCCI methodologies” into their claims processing systems. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) originally developed the NCCI to promote national correct coding methodologies and to control improper coding leading to inappropriate payments in Medicare Part B claims. The purpose of the NCCI edits is to prevent improper payments when incorrect code combinations are reported. Arkansas Medicaid implemented NCCI methodologies for claims with dates of service on or after 4/1/2011.
