The Provider Portal contains information about the process required to become a Medicaid/DDD approved provider in the Division's Fee-for-Service System, inlcuding a link to the Combined Application to Become a Medicaid/DDD Approved Provider.
June 1, 2015: 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 follow the steps outlined below.
We apologize for any inconvenience this change has created.
How Do I Become a Medicaid/DDD Approved Service Provider?
To become a Medicaid/DDD approved provider of Division-funded services, please follow the steps below.
Please Note: As of June 2015, the Combined Application is open for all services except Individual Supports and Community Transition Services. These two services have been temporarily removed from the Combined Application pending final approval of the Community Care Waiver renewal from the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
Providers should complete the Combined Application for all other services they are interested in offering.
Step 1:Apply for an NPI for Every Service Location Go to the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System website and apply for an NPI for each location from which you plan to provide services. If the services you are providing are community based and not provided through a specific location (Community Based Supports or Supported Employment, for example), apply for an NPI for the main location (administrative office).
Step 2:Complete the Combined Application Once all of the NPIs have been obtained, complete the Combined Application to Become a Medicaid/DDD Approved Provider. (For additionl information about completing the Combined Application, please view the Division's webinar, Becoming an Approved Provider: Completing the Combined Application.)
Step 3:Submit the Combined Application By Mail* Submit the completed application along with any required documents associated with the services you are applying to provide (such as the Day Habilitation Certification necessary for Day Habilitation Services) via mail to:
Molina Medicaid Solutions
Provider Enrollment Unit
PO Box 4804
Trenton, NJ 08650-4804
*Agencies are strongly advised to retain a copy of their original Combined Application. If a provider agency wishes to add services at a later date, the Combined Application must be submitted again for the new services.
Additional Steps for Agencies Interested in Providing Support Coordination Services
Support Coordination is a Medicaid-only service that cannot be provided through the Fiscal Intermediary.
Prior to submitting the Combined Application, agencies interested in providing Division-funded Support Coordination services must:
Additional Steps for Agencies Interested in Providing Day Habilitation Services
Agencies with an interest in providing Day Habilitation services must apply for and receive Day Habilitation Certification prior to submitting the Combined Application.
Agencies approved to provide Support Coordination services can request access to the iRecord.
For the initial request for iRecord access, the Support Coordination Supervisor must complete the iRecord Request Form, scan it, and send it via email to DDD.ITREQUESTS@dhs.state.nj.us. A username and temporary password will be sent to the Support Coordination Supervisor, including instructions on re-setting the initial temporary password.
After the initial account is set up, the Support Coordination Supervisor can log into the iRecord and request additional users.
