HAWAII EXCISE TAX CHANGE FOR THE FED 87 & FED 117 HMO PLANS:

LSV is changing from a manual monthly process for tax reimbursement to a systematic calculation, which will be for both paper and electronic claims. Instead of this process being done monthly, it will now be processed on each claim at the time of submission, and reported as a line item on each EOB as code D9985. The implementation will take effect on November 22, 2019. GET is covered for participating providers only. All nonprofit groups are excluded.

►Keep on your Radar: Dentist Licenses - Renew by 12/31/19

Just a friendly reminder to renew your dentist license by December 31, 2019. Failure to renew by the deadline listed will result in the forfeiture of your license which may result in the termination of your participation with HMSA Dental. We highly encourage you to create a “MYPVL” account on the Hawaii.gov website to expedite this process. More information on account set up and Renewal FAQ’s can be found here: https://cca.hawaii.gov/pvl/mypvl-and-renewal-faqs/
