Medicaid ID Numbers
In order to comply with Federal Rule 42 CFR 438.602 that went into effect January 1, 2018, providers are required to have an active Medicaid ID number. It is important to note that Medicaid ID numbers expire in certain circumstances. Please verify with MITS that the Medicaid ID numbers for all billing practitioners in your group are active. The State of Ohio has provided a grace period which ends September 1, 2018. If you are practicing in a state other than Ohio, please refer to your state’s Medicaid governing body regarding potential grace periods. If anyone within your group does not have an active Medicaid ID number by the end of the grace period, he/she may not be reimbursed for services provided to Medicaid or managed Medicaid members. If you have any questions, please contact Juli-Anne Michel at (614) 355-5517or Julianne.Michel@NationwideChildrens.org.
