In accordance with the federal Affordable Care Act, the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (DHS) must re-validate all providers at least every five years; therefore, DHS is requesting providers that enrolled on or before March 25, 2011, to submit their enrollment applications now. Providers will need to re-validate their enrollment information, for every service location, by completing a new enrollment application to meet the March 24, 2016, deadline.
DHS is anticipating a high volume of applications and in order to ensure that your application is processed timely, please submit your revalidation application as soon as possible. This will prevent any interruption in your participation with DHS or our partnered managed care plans.
The following links on the DHS website provide helpful information:
1. DHS Provider Enrollment and Screening Requirements of the Affordable Care Act
2. DHS enrollment/revalidation applications and instructions
Please don't hesitate to reach out to your DHS Program Office with any questions or concerns.
You may have already revalidated and DHS encourages providers to check the MA Enrolled Provider Portal Lookup Function to determine your revalidation date. All provider letters and portal login screens contain your next revalidation due date. Look for changes on the provider portal for each 13-digit logon to check your service location (s).
