Become an ACAP Provider

Keystone Autism Services (KAS) continuously searches for in-network providers to increase and maintain access to care. The ACAP network is made up of both behavioral health and physical health providers. Both of these services are covered benefits. In addition to in-network providers, KAS can also have out-of-network agreements in order to improve access to care that is not available through an in-network provider option.

Requirements of In-Network Providers with ACAP as MA Providers

  • Submit documentation of Medical Assistance status (e.g. letter from DPW)
  • Complete and sign a Provider Agreement
  • Complete and sign a Business Associate Agreement (BAA)
  • Submit proof of liability insurance (usually a declaration page)
  • Submit copies of applicable practitioner/facility licenses. Attestations and electronic listings can be used for compliance with this requirement as well.
  • Submit W-9 (if not billing on standardized claim form)
  • Confirmation of no exclusions
  • For Respite and Habilitation services, understanding/implementing training requirements

Requirements of Out-of-Network Providers

Out-of-network agreement requirements are the same as in-network procedures, with the exception of submitting MA status documentation.

In some cases, the above two contract options do not apply. Agreements for those types of services are managed using vendor procedures. The requirements to be a vendor service provider with ACAP are:

  • Complete and sign a Business Associate Agreement
  • Submit proof of liability insurance (usually a declaration page)
  • Submit copies of applicable service type licenses and certifications (e.g. chemicals for lawn treatment). Attestations and electronic listings can be used for compliance with this requirement as well.
  • Submit W-9 (if not billing on standardized claim form)
  • Confirmation of no exclusion

Other Requirements

Depending on the type of service being rendered, requirements as a provider can include but are not limited to:

  • Provision of encounter forms (unless billing on standard claim form such as UB-04, 1500, Dental Claim Form
  • Submitting clinical documentation regarding progress toward goals quarterly (at minimum)
  • Timely billing (within 45 days of service delivery)
  • Provider Audits are conducted based on random selection. Advance notice and audit content template are provided.
