A provider must revalidate enrollment of their provider id periodically to maintain Medicaid billing privileges. In general, providers are required to revalidate every four years. AHCCCS also reserves the right to request off-cycle revalidations.
As part of the revalidation process the provider is subject to the same screening and disclosures captured during the initial enrollment. Additionally, based on provider type the process could include an enrollment fee, site visit, and fingerprint criminal background check required as a part of the screening requirements.
Beginning November 2022, AHCCCS-Division of Member and Provider Services (DMPS) will begin notifying providers through the United States Postal Service mail who are required to revalidate their Medicaid id. The revalidation process will ascend over a 10-month period beginning in November 2022 through August 2023.
Note: If you don’t see your name on the provider spreadsheet no further action is required.
