NC Medicaid Announces Direct Enrollment of Mid-Level Providers

Take action now to ensure that your claims are not suspended or denied.

In accordance with new Federal regulations, claims for services will no longer be filed as "incident to" in NCTracks. All attending, rendering, ordering, prescribing or referring providers in NC Medicaid or NC Health Choice, including Physician Assistants (PAs), Nurse Practitioners (NPs), Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs), and Certified Nurse Midwives (CNM), are encouraged to begin submitting enrollment applications now to NCTracks. This will ensure that your claims are not suspended on November 1, 2016 – the effective date of this new rule. Visit the Provider Enrollment page.

For all claims submitted beginning November 1, the provider’s National Provider Identifier (NPI) will be required as a data element on the claim for programs listed in this May 2016 Special Bulletin. Any NPI entered on a claim will be validated, even if it is not required for that service/claim type. Limited exceptions to this new regulation include any Resident or Intern in a Graduate Dental and Medical Education program.
