Update to Physician Enrollment Issue

March 20, 2015

After some great follow-up from the DMAS staff we have learned that since most of the prescribing practitioners  we deal with for our ID/DD individuals are already Medicaid providers (they bill Medicaid for services currently), that we should not have significant issues. 

Be alert, however, to any scripts written by a “hospitalist”  as they may not be enrolled in Virginia Medicaid.   We may have to ask pointed questions before we accept scripts on behalf of any individual.
