The statement will contain, at a minimum, the following information for each line item: Name of provider; date of service or assistance; medicaid billing code; description of the service or assistance; and the number of units billed. If the statement is not accurate, or if the recipient, guardian, committee or attorney- in-fact for the recipient disagrees with any service or assistance described on the statement, he or she shall notify the State Medicaid Agency immediately. Pursuant to article seven of this chapter, the State Medicaid Agency shall investigate any discrepancy brought to its attention by or on behalf of a medicaid recipient.
