In accordance with Federal Law, Providers who received payments for Early Intervention Services in the 2022 calendar year should expect to receive a number of 1099 forms. Providers will receive a 1099 from New York State Department of Health via the State Fiscal Agent (SFA) for amounts from the State Escrow account in 2022, a 1099 from Medicaid, and a 1099 from each insurance company.

The updated list of the ICD-10 codes that were made available in NYEIS as of January 18, 2023, is accessible via the above link.
If providers determine that there is an ICD-10 code needed in NYEIS for billing purposes, a feature request form must be submitted and include both the code and description. The form is available on the Health Commerce System (HCS) in the “Feature Request – Data Change Request” folder within the NYEIS Documents group.
Requests will be reviewed prior to being entered into NYEIS. Please allow up to 6 - 8 weeks from the date the Feature Request Form is received for the code to be available in NYEIS.
If you need further information regarding NYEIS in general, please contact the NYEIS help desk at email@example.com or by calling (toll free) 1-(833)-395-7058, or 518-640-8390
The Bureau of Early Intervention (BEI) is implementing an ATB 1% rate increase on payments for Early Intervention (EI) services, including Service Coordination, Evaluations and General Services. The 1% rate increase will be reflected in both Medicaid and Escrow payments. The rate increase will be retroactive and apply to services rendered on or after 4/1/2022. For more information, please follow the link.
On September 1, 2022, the Bureau of Early Intervention sent an email communication to EI Program stakeholders providing an update on the EI-Hub Sandbox user experience. The Bureau and PCG acknowledge the challenges experienced during the roll out of the Sandbox, but believe the Sandbox will provide system users with hands on experience that will help to prepare for the launch of the EI-Hub. BEI will provide approximately two months notice before the EI-Hub launch date. To read the full communication, please follow the link.
