Changes to the Arkansas Medicaid Website
Due to changes implemented by the Department of Information Services, the Arkansas Medicaid website URL changed on 4/6/18 from the legacy https://www.medicaid.state.ar.us/ to the new URL https://medicaid.mmis.arkansas.gov/. The legacy Arkansas Medicaid URL will automatically redirect to the updated website URL for a period of time; however, your bookmarks to the website should be updated during this period. In a few months the legacy Arkansas Medicaid website URL will no longer exist and you will receive a page not found message.
Although you should expect a different look for the Arkansas Medicaid website that utilizes a new drop-down menu structure, the content on the Arkansas Medicaid website remains the same.
Paper Remittance Advices Will No Longer Be Mailed
Effective April 30, 2018, Arkansas Medicaid will no longer print and mail paper Remittance Advices (RAs). Providers have two options to receive their RAs:
- Register on the HealthCare Provider Portal and download your RA using Search Payment History, or
- Obtain an 835 transaction from your billing vendor, which contains the data from your RA
If you need help registering for the portal, obtaining a trading partner ID, linking your trading partner ID or using Search Payment History, the following job aids will provide step-by-step instructions.
If you have any questions, please contact the Provider Assistance Center at (800) 457-4454 or (501) 376-2211.
Corrected Sixty Day Notice for Medicaid Inactivity
Corrected notifications of cancellation for Medicaid billing inactivity have been mailed to appropriately inactive providers. These corrected notifications are dated February 23. If you received this corrected notification of cancellation,
your Medicaid provider ID will be cancelled for inactivity as stated.
If your paper 1099 form mailed from Arkansas Medicaid has been lost or misplaced, you can print a replacement from the HealthCare Provider Portal. To access your 1099, select “Financial 1099 History” under Category for File Download.
Enter 01/01/2018 as the From Date and 03/01/2018 as the To Date. Each 1099 file will start with characters LOD.FIN.TX07 at the beginning of the file name. These 1099 documents are generated by
provider number. To know what information was reported to the IRS, you will need to get ALL 1099s for each provider number reported under your tax ID number.
Grace Period Extension
All dually-eligible hospitals who submitted eCQMS on the CMS website have until April 28, 2018 to submit an application/attestation.
A submitted application means that you have registered with the R&A, attested through MAPIR and completed the MAPIR application by clicking the Submit button.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Arkansas Incentive Payment Team (AIPT) at
