Timely Information from Arkansas Medicaid
All systems are currently online.
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.

Changes to the Arkansas Medicaid Website
The Arkansas Medicaid website URL will soon change from the current https://www.medicaid.state.ar.us/ to the new URL https://www.medicaid.mmis.arkansas.gov/. The old 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. Eventually, the current Arkansas Medicaid website URL will no longer exist; you will receive a page not found message when trying to access https://www.medicaid.state.ar.us/.
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 will remain the same. If you have difficulty locating information you need after the URL change, contact the webmaster at ARKWebmaster@hpe.com.

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 email@example.com.
