Medicaid Reimbursement Now Available For Medical Language Interpreting Services | Oswego County


“Providers of outpatient health services who utilize medical interpreting services are now eligible for reimbursement through Medicaid Managed Care and Family Health Plus Plans,” said Theresa Slater, Empire Interpreting Service EIS President.“This reimbursement became available Oct. 1 last year and retroactive billing is acceptable,” Slater said.  “Many providers across NY State are still not fully aware of this.  The new reimbursement can be a tremendous help to providers who utilize the services of professional Medical Interpreters in order to abide by regulations from the ADA and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act.  Previously, providers have had to bear the cost of Medical Interpreting as a business expense.”
