CMS announced the previous March 24, 2016 cutoff date for Medicaid provider re-enrollment has been extended to September 25, 2016.

TMHP released a “Quick Tips to Avoid Common Provider Enrollment Deficiencies.” Please see the following tips below:

  • Note the term Principal is defined as any person or entity who manages employees
  • Complete the PIF-2 in full for all persons or entities to avoid re-enrollment denial
