If you are a KanCare provider and want to continue providing services to the Medicaid population, you need to enroll in the Kansas Medical Assistance Program and receive a provider identification (ID) number. KanCare MCOs will begin denying claims submitted without an ID number on January 1, 2019. CMS Final Rule 2390F (KMAP Bulletin) requires all network providers to be KMAP enrolled and screened prior to receiving payment from an MCO.
The rule applies to all provider types and specialties and is inclusive of billing, rendering, ordering, prescribing, referring, sponsoring and attending providers. KAOM recommends, to avoid claims denials you should have your KMAP application to the state by November 1. Please call KMAP Enrollment at 1-800-933-6593 to see if you have a current KMAP provider ID.
