Reintroduction of Adult Podiatry Benefit
Effective on or after Jan. 1, 2020, the South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (SCDHHS) will reintroduce podiatry benefits for adult Medicaid beneficiaries.
SCDHHS is extending podiatry services to South Carolina Medicaid beneficiaries over the age of 21. Podiatry services rendered to Medicaid beneficiaries must be medically necessary in order to be reimbursed. Adult podiatry services were previously covered by South Carolina Healthy Connections Medicaid until Feb. 1, 2011.
Please refer any questions or concerns regarding this bulletin to the SCDHHS Provider Service Center at 1-888-289-0709.
Thank you for your continued support of the South Carolina Healthy Connections Medicaid program.
