Effective August 28, 2014, licensed Physician Assistants will be able to submit enrollment applications to become Medicaid providers. These applications will not be immediately processed.
Until the necessary work is completed for the Physician Assistants applications to be processed and the enrollment to actually take place, Physician Assistants may still provide services and bill under their collaborating physician’s number.
The instructions and application forms are available on this web site in PDF format under the “Provider Enrollment Applications and Forms” tab. Applicants should print out the application forms and mail them to the MMAC Provider Enrollment Unit after they are completed, along with the required documentation listed on the forms.
Per 13 CSR 70-3.020, MMAC will notify providers within 60 days of receipt of their applications when it appears the applications will not be processed within 90 days of receipt. At this time, MMAC believes that MMAC and MO HealthNet will be able to process these applications and enroll the Physician Assistants by the end of the first quarter of 2015. At that time, MMAC will begin accepting these applications in electronic format.
