Section 1115 Waiver Update e-Memo

Dear Behavioral Health Provider,


FEi Systems, the developers of AKAIMS, and Optum are in the development process to connect the AKAIMS Billing Module to Optum for 1115 services. Presently the only direct connection for the automated billing process is to Conduent for State Plan Services. We hope to have the new connection process established soon. Once it is finalized, the AKAIMS support desk will still continue to assist for billing transactions out of AKAIMS. Optum is responsible for claims once it reaches their system. Links and additional information for Optum can be accessed by their quick reference guide Optum Alaska Behavioral Health Quick Reference Guide (pdf). Please feel free to call or email me if you have questions on AKAIMS and the 1115 Billing Process.
