With the exception of Public Works (construction type bids) and a few specialty bids, most bids for goods and services procured are completed using a third-party solicitation website called Bonfire. Vendors have the option to view IEHP’s open solicitations on the Bonfire website. IEHP invites all vendors to register with Bonfire and participate in IEHP’s fair and open solicitation process for goods and services. Mission Statement The Procurement department is committed to supporting the mission of IEHP, which is “to organize and improve the delivery of quality, accessible and wellness based healthcare services for our community”.

Fraud, Waste, and Abuse (FWA) IEHP has established a Fraud, Waste, and Abuse Program to detect, correct, and prevent fraud, waste, and abuse on part of Team Members, IEHP Members, Providers, Vendors, delegated entities and any other entity doing business with IEHP. Fraud Prevention Fraud Prevention, it’s a Team Effort In an effort to prevent fraud and abuse, IEHP encourages Providers and their staff to report any suspicious circumstances when they arise. You may want to ask for another form of identification in addition to the IEHP Member identification card. Identification with both a picture and a signature, such as a valid driver’s license or State identification card, are suggested. We are informing Members of this concern and are requesting that they have additional identification available when they come to you. To obtain more compliance guidelines, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) offers assistance (by clicking on this link you will be leaving the IEHP website). Fraud is knowingly and willfully executing, or attempting to execute, a scheme or artifice to defraud any health care benefit program, or to obtain, by means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, or promises, any of the money or property owned by, or under the custody or control of, any health care benefit program. Examples include: Knowingly billing for services or prescriptions not furnished or supplies not provided Knowingly altering claim forms for a higher payment Selling medicine, medical equipment, or other things received through IEHP Waste includes overuse of services, or other practices that, directly or indirectly, result in unnecessary costs. Waste is generally not considered to be caused by criminally negligent actions but rather by the misuse of resources. Examples include: Conducting excessive office visits Writing excessive prescriptions or ordering excessive tests Prescribing more medications than necessary for the treatment of a specific condition Abuse includes actions that may, directly or indirectly, result in unnecessary costs and improper payment or services. Abuse involves payment for items or services when there is no legal entitlement to that payment and the provider has not knowingly and/or intentionally misrepresented facts to obtain payment. Examples include: Billing for unnecessary medical services or medical equipment Billing for brand name drugs when generics are dispensed Misusing codes on a claim, such as upcoding and unbundling codes. Report potential FWA Click Here (By clicking on this link, you will be leaving the IEHP website). Privacy Incident/Breach IEHP has established a HIPAA Privacy Program to ensure that Member’s health information is properly protected while allowing the flow of health information needed to provide and promote high-quality health care. A privacy breach is defined as unauthorized acquisition, access, use, or disclosure of protected health information (PHI) which compromises the security or privacy of such information. PHI is health information that relates to a Member’s past, present or future physical or mental health or condition, including the provision of his/her health care, or payment for that care and contains personally identifiable information (PII) such as name, SSN, DOB, Member ID, address, or any other unique identifier related to the Member. This generally means that a breach occurs when PHI is accessed, used, or disclosed to an individual or entity that does not have a business reason to know that information. The law does allow information to be accessed, used, or disclosed when it is related to treatment, payment, or healthcare operations directly associated with the work that we do at IEHP on behalf of our Members.

MediCal - Utilization Management Criteria

e. IEHP has created UM Subcommittee Approved Authorization Guidelines to serve as one of the sets of criteria for medical necessity decisions. Our goal in creating this page is to provide you with easily accessible electronic versions of IEHP’s UM guidelines. IEHP utilizes a variety of sources in developing our UM guidelines which include: Medicare and Medi-Cal’s coverage policy statements Evidence in the peer-reviewed published medical literature Technology assessments and structured evidence reviews Evidence-based consensus statements Expert opinions of healthcare Providers Evidence-based guidelines from nationally recognized professional healthcare organizations and public health agencies. IEHP is also licensed to use MCG Guidelines, Apollo Medical Review Criteria, and InterQual to guide in utilization management decisions. Since medical technology is constantly evolving, our clinical guidelines are subject to change without prior notification. Additional UM Subcommittee Guidelines may be developed as needed or may be withdrawn from use. Please note that benefits may vary based on Member’s line of business; therefore, certain services discussed in the UM Subcommittee Guidelines may not be a covered benefit. Table of Contents (PDF) Providers may obtain information about criteria, either in general or relating to specific UM decisions, from IEHP upon request by contacting the IEHP UM Department.
