Reminder: As the Federal Public Health Emergency Ends, Provider Reverification Requirements are Reinstated
With the end of the federal Public Health Emergency (PHE) expected in the Summer of 2022, NC Medicaid providers will begin receiving reverification notices. These notices will be sent to providers with approaching reverification due dates, as well as those whose reverification was suspended during the federal PHE. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requires that all Medicaid providers are revalidated (also referred to as reverification/recredentialing).
Since March 2020, CMS allowed for the suspension of reverification due to the PHE caused by COVID-19. However, with the anticipated end of the PHE, the NC Medicaid must ensure enrolled providers are compliant with the reverification requirement.
Note: Providers will receive a reverification notice in their Message Center Inbox on the secure NCTracks Provider Portal when reverification is due. Due dates for reverification are specific to each provider; therefore, not all providers will be receiving notices simultaneously. Providers have 45 days after notification to complete the reverification process. NC Senate Bill 105 Session Law 2021-180 Section 9D.9(a) temporarily waived the $100 fee for Medicaid enrollment and reverification, through June 30, 2023.
Reverification is not optional. Providers who receive a notice for reverification are encouraged to promptly respond and begin the online process.
- Providers who do not complete the process timely will receive a Notice of Suspension via postal mail and in their NCTracks Message Center Inbox.
- The notice informs the provider that they are in suspended status and their claims will not process.
- Providers have 30 days following notification of suspension to complete reverification.
- Those who do not comply will be terminated from the Medicaid program.
Reverification does not apply to time-limited out-of-state (OOS) enrolled providers.
