Medicaid DID billing records

Evan Anderson filed this request with the Department of Social Services of Connecticut.
Est. Completion None


From: Evan Anderson

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Connecticut Freedom of Information Act ("FOIA"), I hereby request the following records:

A spreadsheet of Medicaid claims for treatment of Dissociative Identity Disorder (ICD-9 300.14, ICD-10 F44.81). I am seeking claims between 1/1/2000 and the date this request is processed. I expect all identifiable information to be redacted. If a spreadsheet of individual claims cannot be produced, I would appreciate aggregated information broken down by provider, number of claims, and date/year, if possible.

I also request that, if possible and pursuant to Conn. Gen. Stat. § 1-212(d), fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest and not made for commercial gain. The requested documents will be processed by a representative of the news media/press and made available to the public at

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 4 business days, as the statute requires.

Good afternoon.

In order to provide you the requested information, staff says that we would have to have our contractor create a custom report for you.

The CT FOIA doesn’t require public agencies to create/produce documents that don’t currently exist, unless requested documents can be created from existing data, in which case the agency can charge the requestor for production time and would offer to provide a cost estimate for same.

Staff reached out to the contractor that maintains the relevant data and was informed that to aggregate the information you request would cost approximately $2,100. This estimate assumed that the data was being requested for physician and institutional claim types (Dental and pharmacy claims were not included in this estimate).

If you would like to have these reports created, please let us know and we will you provide information on how to submit payment to the Department.

Thank you.
