HFS System Issue:
The 340B dispensing fee add-on is not being applied to claims submitted by Provider Type 52, Local Health Department.
The department released a notice on February 4, 2014 informing providers that in order to receive the $20 dispensing fee add-on, providers must identify 340B purchased drugs by reporting modifier “UD” in conjunction with the appropriate procedure code. Effective immediately, the provider charge should be the actual acquisition cost plus the $20 dispensing fee. On April 16, 2014, department staff were informed that the programming logic for the Local Health Departments was not programmed into the claims processing system.
