The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) released a proposed policy to rescind remaining waived provider enrollment (PE) requirements implemented by MSA 20-28 and resume required enrollment activities that were waived during the federal COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE). The MDHHS proposes to reinstate the following processes beginning Dec. 1, 2022:
- Community Health Automated Medicaid Processing System (CHAMPS) enrollment revalidations with MDHHS notifying providers beginning November 2022 of their rescheduled validation date, which will be assigned on a rolling basis starting with providers who have had the longest revalidation pause. Providers may view their rescheduled revalidation date in CHAMPS.
- Site visits for prospective and current providers which will be performed following all state and federal public health guidelines, such as masking and social distancing.
- Fingerprint-based criminal background checks associated with providers in the high-risk category.
- Enrollment application fees for providers who had their fees waived under MSA 20-28. Providers may still request a hardship waiver per the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) guidelines which will only be granted after the MDHHS receives approval from the CMS.
