This Bulletin is to alert providers of the delay in implementation of the ASAM VBP arrangement (case rate). Given the extension of the COVID-19 Alternative Payment Arrangement (APA), the ASAM VBP implementation date has been extended from October 1, 2021 to January 1, 2022. Please note, although the VBP arrangement implementation has been delayed, all ASAM providers are expected to adhere to ASAM requirements unless a waiver has been received.

Should you have any questions, please contact your Provider Relations Representative.
