Rate Increase for Pregnancy Risk Screening (PRS) Form.
To promote the early detection of pregnancy, effective 1/1/23 Carolina Complete Health (CCH) increased the rate for the pregnancy risk screening (PRS) tool from $50 to $100. In accordance with NC DHHS Clinical Coverage Policy 1E-6, providers shall bill the HCPCS code S0280 after the PRS screening tool has been completed. CCH providers can complete the PRS using the forms available on the Pregnancy Medical Home website and fax to CCH Care Management: 833-417-0446.
