Supports Program to Launch in July - Invitation Extended to New Providers!

With the anticipated launch of the Supports Program and implementation of the Medicaid-based, Fee-for-Service System in July 2015, the Division is actively recruiting providers who have the interest and capacity to offer high quality services in the community for New Jersey adults (age 21+) with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

We invite current and prospective providers and other community partners to review and share our New Provider Welcome Packet, which includes a link to the webinar, Providing Services in the New Jersey Developmental Disabilities System: A Primer for New Providers.

To learn more or to begin the application process, please visit the Division's Provider Portal page.

Important Change in Combined Application Process

Contrary to previous guidance, the Division recently became aware that in order to apply to become an approved Medicaid/DDD provider and receive payment for claims submitted, service providers will need to obtain an NPI for each location from which services are delivered. This process goes quickly when applying through the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) website.

If you have already submitted your Combined Application to Become a Medicaid/DDD Approved Provider with just one NPI, you do not need to resubmit your application. Molina (Medicaid’s fiscal agent) will reach out to you to get the NPI for additional locations. Details on how and when Molina will contact providers who have already submitted the application are forthcoming.

If you have not yet submitted your Combined Application to Become a Medicaid/DDD Approved Provider, please proceed to the Provider Portal page and complete the application process.

We apologize for any inconvenience this change has created.

Molina Medicaid Solutions, the State’s fiscal agent, will be hosting two provider sessions on electronic claiming as DDD billing transitions to Fee-for-Service from a payment voucher system:
