Provider Enrollment and Screening



South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (SCDHHS) will collect the applicable application fee of $532.00 prior to executing a provider agreement whether upon an initial enrollment, reactivation, revalidation or an enrollment to add a new practice location.  SCDHHS has contracted with SC.Gov Enterprise Payment System to facilitate collection of the application fee.  Payments may be made by debit, credit or e-check.  Paper checks will not be accepted.  
The application fee applies to:  Business organizations and entities that enroll in South Carolina Medicaid with an Employer Identification Number (EIN).  The application fee does not apply to: 
  • Individual physicians (sole proprietors enrolling with an SSN and EIN are considered individuals) 
  • Non-physician practitioners
  • Providers who are enrolled in Medicare and/or enrolled in another State?s Medicaid Agency or Children?s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
  • Providers who have already paid the applicable application fee to Medicare and/or another State?s Medicaid or CHIP
The December 3, 2012 Medicaid bulletin stated that SCDHHS will discontinue the practice of sending the CD Manual with each new enrollment received on or after December 3, 2013.  The date listed was incorrect.  SCDHHS discontinued this practice effective December 3, 2012.
If you have any questions regarding provider enrollment and screening, please contact the Provider Service Center at (888) 289-0709, Option 4.  Please visit for additional information.  Thank you for your continued support of the Medicaid program.
