INARF received the message below from Joe Moser, Medicaid Director, State of Indiana. This is of high importance as it pertains to CoreMMIS deployment.
Dear Medicaid Provider Community:
We are temporarily delaying the December 5 deployment of CoreMMIS to allow additional time for readiness testing. Transitional activities that had been underway are now suspended. Implementation and triage plans are on hold.
Because of this temporary delay, the processing of provider enrollments, which had been suspended, will resume. Paper and electronic claims processing will also recommence. Prior Authorization and the Right Choices program will not be suspended according to the originally communicated implementation schedule. However, brief suspensions in these functions will be necessary as a new implementation date approaches. Look for further communication soon about the new implementation date and activity suspension dates.
Providers should continue to register for the portal and make preparations for the transition including training activities to learn how to use the new Portal and its features.
CoreMMIS and the Provider Healthcare Portal represent significant enhancements to the Indiana Medicaid program. Once deployed, Indiana will boast one of the most modern, most effective and most accurate systems in the nation, and we remain 100 percent committed to a successful implementation.
If you have additional questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the provider relations field consultant for your area.
Thank you for serving the members of Indiana Medicaid. We appreciate the efforts you and your colleagues have made to prepare for the new system and will continue to make during this brief delay.
State of Indiana
