Provider Revalidation

PROVIDER ALERT

In the bulletin dated April 20, 2015, providers were informed their enrollment information must be revalidated, per the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service (CMS). To avoid risk of termination in the South Carolina Department of Health Human Services (SCDHHS) Healthy Connections Medicaid program, you must complete and submit an enrollment application 30 days from the date of your official revalidation notification letter. DO NOT begin the revalidation process until you receive notification. The notification contains pertinent information needed to start and complete the revalidation process.

In addition, the enrollment application fee is ONLY applicable to providers that CMS have identified as institutional providers. The application fee must be collected before a revalidation provider enrollment agreement unless the provider is already enrolled in Medicare, enrolled in another state’s Medicaid or CHIP program or submitted and received approval for a Hardship Waiver request. South Carolina Healthy Connections Medicaid recognizes and enrolls the following institutional providers:

Ambulatory Surgery Centers, Community Mental Health Centers; Comprehensive Outpatient Rehabilitation Facilities; Durable Medical Equipment, End State Renal Disease Facilities; Federally Qualified Health Centers; Home Health Agencies; Hospices; Hospitals, Acute Inpatient Facilities, Inpatient Psychiatric Facilities, Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities, Independent Clinical Laboratories; Skilled Nursing Facilities and Rural Health Clinics.

The revalidation process for Group 1 begins May 25, 2015, and ends June 25, 2015. The first group to begin the revalidation process is as follows:
