The Missouri Medicaid Audit and Compliance (MMAC) Provider Enrollment Unit (PEU) frequently receives requests to backdate provider enrollment applications. MMAC will not backdate the effective date of a provider’s Missouri Medicaid enrollment prior to the date MMAC received the provider’s application, except in very specific situations, such as out of state emergency services. This is outlined in state regulation.
