03/18/16: Medicaid Revalidation Update

Medicaid Revalidation Update


This is an update to the February 19, 2016 MSP Topic of the Week titled Medicaid Revalidation for all MSP School Districts. The Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) has verbally agreed to rescind the requirement that districts provide the “Social Security Number” and “Date of Birth” of all School Board Members on the MSP revalidation application. However, the list of School Districts that will need to revalidate their Ohio Medicaid Provider Agreement in 2016 has grown from 39 districts to 196 districts.  Attached is the current list of districts that require revalidation in 2016, and we will also keep an updated list posted on our website. 2016 Revalidations

My assistant Debbie Miller can walk you through the online application, which takes about 30 minutes to process from start to finish. You will need your board office address/phone information, as well as the Superintendent and Treasurer DOB and SS#, and a completed W-9 Form. The revalidation fee charged by ODM is $554, and must be paid by credit card (Visa, Master Card, Discover). For those districts that do not have a credit card available, HBS can use their card and then bill your district directly for the state revalidation fee.

Districts that do not have their revalidation complete by their due date will have their State Medicaid Provider Number turned off, and all MSP reimbursement checks/EFT’s will be halted. Districts will receive a letter from ODM approximately 30 days before the expiration of your current Medicaid Provider Agreement. Please do not wait until the last day to submit your application, as it will take ODM time to process your application. Once your revalidation is accepted, your Ohio Medicaid Provider Agreement is good for another five years.

If you have any questions on the MSP Provider Revalidation process, please contact Debbie Miller.
