Medicaid “Go Live” date has been postponed until March 1, 2017

Wednesday, October 12, 2016 03:07 PM

The Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Finance announced this morning that the conversion date for moving to the new Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS), the Colorado interChange, has been postponed until March 1, 2017. This will allow more time for providers to complete the revalidation process, and allow additional time for training on the web portal as well as testing. The Department wants to ensure that providers are not adversely impacted by the system change.

Providers should continue to use their current processes for submitting claims, prior authorization requests and provider enrollment updates to the department. Claims will continue to be processed and paid; there will be no delay this month.

Providers should also continue efforts to revalidate. If you have not yet started the process, CDPHE urges you to start immediately. Use this link to find resources and get started. If you have completed your revalidation you are encouraged to begin the online training courses for use of the new web portal. If you missed a live session, the recorded sessions will be available later this month. Additional provider resources can be found here.
