COVID-19 FUNDING, INFORMATION & RESOURCES

WHANAU HQ PRIMARY CARE FUNDING OF COVID POSITIVE PATIENTS

Submitting Claims

Claiming for COVID positive management in Primary Care is via the POAC PMS claiming system.

  • Submit a new REFERRAL using code 'COVID Positive PC Management' as reason for referral
  • Claim activity by submitting an INVOICE (as per the claiming guide) either as a 'Package of Care' OR 'Fee for Service' (FFS).

Although CCCM will not be used to generate payment of activity, please continue to use to support clinical management for high needs patients:

  1. Blue flag for cover acceptance.
  2. Yellow flags if weekend cover is required.
  3. To request pulse oximeters for high acuity patients.

CCCM is not required for lower risk patients.  These patients do not require active management.

Funding & Claiming

Extended POAC funding

During the COVID-19 response period, POAC may be used to fund a range of extended services where endorsed by hospital specialist or pre-approved by POAC. Additional services may include iron infusions, cancer medication administration, radiology investigations, social supports, and management of conditions normally out of scope but currently impacted by COVID-19 and unavailable through local DHB services.

Contact POAC for pre-approval (09) 535 7218 or email referral@poac.co.nz.  

When submitting your referral electronically, use coding ‘COVID-19 – Extended Services’ and state the name of the endorsing consultant.
