The focus of this session is to identify the threats to your clinic with the increase in cybersecurity activity. Dr. Brinda will identify simple solutions that you can take to help protect your clinic and understand how to defend off some common security threats. She will identify best practices and simple solutions to make big impacts on protection of protected health information in the healthcare industry.

Disclosure of Ownership and Cultural Competency Requirement
In accordance with regulatory requirements of the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) regulations, all payors, including Fulcrum Health, Inc. (Fulcrum) must collect and maintain information regarding disclosure of ownership and management information and cultural competency from providers in its network on an annual basis.

Cultural competency training is best practice for all clinics regardless of state. However, it is a regulatory requirement for MN providers.

This is a regulatory requirement for all providers; regardless of state.

The online forms are located on a secure, encrypted webpage.

Please contact info@fulcrumhealthinc.org with any questions.
Diagnosis Inconsistent with Procedure Claim Denials
Fulcrum Health revised the claims processing system on medical necessity edits for CMT. The system edits did not apply as intended and are currently being reviewed by Fulcrum. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Claims that were incorrectly denied during the time period of 01/01/2022 – 02/08/2022 due to “Diagnosis Inconsistent with Procedure”, will be reprocessed. We estimate this review and reprocessing effort will be completed by the end of April 2022.

If you have questions on a specific claim, please contact Fulcrum Provider Services at (877) 886-4941, and select option 1, and then listen to the prompts for your specific claim type.
