Get Ready, Mark Your Calendars! Go-Live is Less Than 35 Days Away!
The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Division of Health Care Financing and Policy (DHCFP) is on-track to implement Stage 3 of Medicaid Management Information Systems (MMIS) new interChange system with our partner DXC Technology in February 2019. Included in this Stage 3 release will be the core functionality for processing of Claims, Financial, Managed Care, Contact Tracking Management System (Call Tracking), and an upgraded Data Warehouse for reporting. The DHCFP instituted a Legacy MMIS system code freeze in August 2018 in order to make certain all Legacy changes are incorporated in to the new interChange system for Go-Live.
We are happy to announce that the Provider Web Portal has a new MMIS Modernization information page. This is a great resource to keep our Providers informed about the upcoming Training, New Reports, Trading Partner Enrollment, Issues and Work Arounds, Web Announcements and just about anything else they need to know about the project. This is updated frequently, so check it out!
The DHCFP and DXC are currently completing the User Acceptance Testing phase, scheduled to be finished by end of 2018 or early January 2019. The Centers of Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) performed a Milestone review of the interChange system processes in early December 2018 as part of the certification process required. DHCFP received feedback and action items, which have been resolved.
Provider training is set to occur in early to mid January 2019, with close to 1,100 Providers signed up as of this posting. Please refer to the following website (Modernization Webpage) for more information, if you haven’t signed up yet.
NOTE: Paper Applications will no longer be accepted after January 11, 2019. Please make sure you use the Web Portal past this date.
DHCFP has setup a Command Center with all decision makers in one room to mitigate any issues that may impact you as quickly as possible.
