Do we need to receive designation to provide Children's CFTSS/HCBS before we enroll for a provider number such as the Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS)?
Yes, you need to receive designation to provide Children and Family Treatment and Support Services (formerly SPA) and/or Children's HCBS before you enroll for a provider number such as the Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS).
Does a provider need a different Medicaid number as a Children and Family Treatment and Support Services provider if they are currently an enrolled provider for a program (i.e. PROS)?
Providers already enrolled in Medicaid do not need to re-enroll. The State will add the appropriate Category of Service code for the providers who have been designated for children’s services.
The only time an agency would need to complete a Medicaid application is if the agency is brand new.
Can non-licensed providers for CFTSS and children's HCBS, that do not have a NPI, use the unlicensed provider number?
Yes. Non-licensed providers for CFTSS and HCBS that do not have a NPI can use the OMH unlicensed provider number 02249154 or the OASAS unlicensed provider number 02249145
