Enrollment in the program is not a guarantee; therefore, providing services to Kentucky Medicaid members prior to your effective date is at your own financial risk.

What is a KY Medicaid Provider

The Department for Medicaid Services (DMS) only contracts with providers or entities qualified under 907 KAR 1:671 and 907 KAR 1:672 and approved by DMS to participate. DMS reserves the right to approve or reject a contract with any prospective provider.

Notice: Pursuant to 907 KAR 1:672 Section 2 1(c)(1), you must be enrolled as a participating provider prior to being eligible to receive reimbursement.

How do I enroll as a Medicaid provider?

Beginning on November 1, 2011, there are processes to enroll and submit your forms to KY Medicaid or their MCO's.

If you are not assigned to an MCO or choose not to participate in a MCO, (fee for service provider), and to become a Kentucky Medicaid provider, you must complete and submit the appropriate MAP 811 form and supporting documentation. The MAP 811 is the Medicaid Provider application; two versions of this application are available to providers, one for non-credentialed providers and one for credentialed individuals. The type of provider you are enrolling as will determine which application you complete and submit for processing. To verify which forms you need, refer to Provider Type Summaries and Forms.

Once you completed and signed your forms, send them to:

Kentucky Medicaid
Provider Enrollment
P.O. Box 2110
Frankfort, KY 40602
