Provider Alert: DMAS Issues PRSS Guidelines
Virginia’s Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) has shared information regarding Provider Services Solution (PRSS) guidelines for subunits.
DMAS does not enroll psychiatric subunits separately from the acute care hospital. The DMAS rates for psychiatric services are loaded and reimbursed under the National Provider Identifier (NPI) for the acute care hospital. For fee-for-service hospital claims, providers submit claims under the NPI of the acute care hospital, with the correct taxonomy (e.g., general hospital, psychiatric unit of hospital, etc.).
