Please see attached OASAS letter informing providers that effective January 1, 2021 the billing rate codes for Peer Support Services will transition back to using the Standard Rate Codes.
As per the letter, the transition back to the Standard Rate Codes should simplify the billing process by eliminating the extra claim needed for the separate Enhanced Peer Services Rate Code. The reimbursement amount using the Standard Rate Code will be the same as it was utilizing the Enhanced Peer Services Rate Code with a maximum of 12 units (3 hours) per day. Please see Table 2 in the attached letter for a list of the Standard Rate Codes.
