To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to North Dakota Constitution, Article XI, Section 6, and the North Dakota Open Records Statute, N.D.C.C. § 44-04-18(1), I hereby request the following records:
A spreadsheet of Medicaid claims for treatment of Dissociative Identity Disorder (DSM-5 300.14, ICD-10 F44.81).
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
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 would request your response within ten (10) business days.
From incurred date October 1, 2015 to present the total we have are 770 claims that meet the diagnosis criteria specified below.
Thank you for the reply. However, I was hoping to obtain a spreadsheet of all the claims, including provider information. Do you have that available?
The Department of Human Services does not have a spreadsheet with the claims data you are requesting. North Dakota’s open record laws does not require the Department to create or compile a record if a record does not exist. See N.D.C.C. § 44-04-18(4). In addition, Medicaid claims data consists of confidential information not subject to the State’s open record laws. See N.D.C.C. §§ 44-04-18 and 50-06-15 and 45 C.F.R. Part 164.
I am not seeking any Protected Health Information of any sort. I'm looking for aggregated claims data for treatment of Dissociative Identity Disorder sorted by provider and broken down by year. If I am not mistaken, this information must be kept in some form or another. Most likely it is in a database, and a simple query or two should produce the data I am seeking.
Please see the attached spreadsheet that contains aggregated number of claims data for treatment of Dissociative Identity Disorder sorted by provider and broken down by year from incurred date October 1, 2015 to present.
I meant to thank you for this, but I forgot. Sorry about that. I am wondering if you can provide this information going back to 1/1/2000, through 2017? I am also interested in learning the type of service provided (for example, psychotherapy), and the amount of money reimbursed.
