Q: Should providers that provide services to MHCP members enroll all of their locations?
A: MDH started requiring enrollment for all locations when they implemented the screening requirements. At this point, new agencies coming in must enroll all locations. They would then provide and bill the services from those locations.
However, for the current existing providers, although they can move forward with submitting the requests for the new locations, DHS had suggested they hold off until it was announced to all. And if they did enroll those locations, they should continue submitting claims and obtaining the authorizations through the original agency, until future notice. The reason we had suggested they hold off is because we wanted to provide a tool that will make transitions service authorization easier and help to ensure all of the PCA applications are approved as appropriate.
