Y2K Compliance: Service Billing Systems

OMH maintains three automated systems for billing Medicaid, Medicare, third party health insurance companies and private payors for inpatient services, outpatient services and other services provided by OMH. We conducted a review to assess whether OMH appears to be taking the necessary steps to address year 2000 problems for these three automated systems. The results of our review show that OMH is taking many of the steps necessary to address these problems. However, additional progress is needed in preparing contingency plans for the three systems to ensure that services are not disrupted if data processing difficulties are encountered in relation to the year 2000.
