The Academy of Senior Health Sciences, Inc. (formerly The Ohio Academy of Nursing Homes, Inc.) seeks to provide public education and awareness initiatives to the long-term care community in Ohio. Our membership represents a true cross-section of the skilled nursing facility profession, from small sole proprietorships to larger Ohio-based multi-facility companies, as well as those businesses that service our industry. Through our public education and awareness efforts, the Academy brings the collective influences of the members together into a single voice on vital issues affecting our profession.

Founded in 1966, the Academy then identified one of its core purposes as "To foster a spirit of goodwill among those persons engaged in the nursing home industry, to promote ethical practices in their relationships with each other, their employees, and the general public to the end that all interests may be served fairly..." Though the organization has undergone several transformations over the years, most notably in 2011, its dedication and commitment to Ohio's most frail and elderly remains the same.

Molina provides corrected claims filing, training info in latest provider newsletter —  Molina provided information on changes to the requirements for filing corrected claims effective April 1. In their latest provider newsletter, Molina notes: "Effective April 1, 2018, corrected claims must be submitted with the Molina Healthcare claim ID number of the original claim being corrected, and with the appropriate corrected claim indicator based on claim form type. Corrected claims received without this information will not be accepted and will receive the following denial information on the Molina Healthcare remittance:

  • Category Code A3
  • Status Code 748
  • Entity Code 41
  • Error Description: "Missing incomplete/invalid payer claim control number"
Submission of Final Claims after Interim Billing: Also effective April 1, 2018, inpatient facility claims billed on a UB claim form, bill type 0117 will no longer be accepted as the final original claim. Facilities which have submitted interim claims should submit a final claim upon patient discharge using the 0111 bill type.

Please Remember: Corrected claims are used to change or add information to a previously submitted claim. Corrected claims are not adjustments and should be sent through the original claim submission process with a corrected claim indicator and Molina Healthcare claim ID number as outlined in the Corrected Claim Billing Guide.

  • Submit electronically with payer ID 20149 or on the Provider Portal.
  • Include all elements that need correction and all originally submitted elements
