On March 18, 2020, MO HealthNet published the following hot tip:
To expedite provider enrollment into the MO HealthNet program (Missouri’s Medicaid program), Missouri Medicaid Audit & Compliance (MMAC) is providing same day or overnight approvals of most new provider enrollment applications for physicians, advanced practice nurses, and other licensed practitioners. Visit https://mmac.mo.gov/providers/ for more information.
On March 25, 2020, CMS approved the State of Missouri’s Federal Section 1135 Waiver Request.
In accordance with that waiver, MMAC will continue expediting most new provider enrollments for the duration of the public health emergency. This includes enrolling new providers that want to join the networks of one or more of MO HealthNet’s three managed care organizations.
In some cases, MMAC is provisionally enrolling providers. If applying providers are missing a piece of information normally required for enrollment, MMAC will provisionally approve the application with an effective date no earlier than March 1, 2020, to allow for claims processing.
No enrolled MO HealthNet providers will be terminated for not revalidating timely for the duration of the public health emergency.
If you have questions about your MO HealthNet provider application, please email:
