(May 28, 2015) - Starting July 1st providers will no longer be required to file an Annual Disclosure of Ownership (ADO). Therefore, any provider who has a due date of July 1st and thereafter is not required to submit an ADO. Only those providers with a due date up to and including June 30 are required to submit an ADO.
Medicaid was updating its system to prevent the 60-day and 30-day notice letters from going out to providers with a due date starting July 1, but it did not take effect in time. Therefore, providers may receive letters erroneously.
If a provider has a due date of July 1 and thereafter, please disregard any letters requiring the ADO. However, please do not ignore other correspondence from us including revalidation notices.

(May 5, 2015) - An April 26, 2015, letter sent to providers regarding 2015 legislative changes to provider enrollment included the statement, "In addition, effective May 1, 2015, all applications must be submitted on the revised MAP-811 in order to be processed. Otherwise, the application will be returned."
Due to technical difficulties launching the new MAP-811 form, DMS advises providers this change will not take effect until July 1, 2015. You may submit either version of the MAP 811 application until July 1, 2015.
