Since July 2015, Missouri Medicaid Audit and Compliance (MMAC) has been collecting application fees from certain applying or revalidating providers. More information about the application fee requirement is on our website at https://mmac.mo.gov/providers/provider-enrollment/new-providers/application-fee/ The Missouri Code of State Regulations has been updated to reflect a change in the application fee. You can view the regulation at https://s1.sos.mo.gov/cmsimages/adrules/csr/current/13csr/13c65-2.pdf
The regulation states the application fee is determined as follows: it is $553.00 for the remainder of the calendar year 2015. For calendar year 2016 and subsequent years, “The amount of the application fee shall be the amount for the preceding year adjusted by the percentage change in the consumer-price index for all urban consumers for the twelve- (12-) month period ending with June of the previous year as published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the United States Department of Labor. If the adjustment sets the fee at an uneven dollar amount, MMAC will round the fee to the nearest whole dollar amount; and the application fee will be effective from January 1 to December 31 of a calendar year.
MMAC will update our website and utilize gov.delivery messaging to notify providers of the rate for calendar year 2016.
