Updated Adjustment Form
The new HP-AR-004 Adjustment Request Form (PDF, new window), along with your updated claim must but be submitted for paper adjustment claims to DXC Technology.
Paper adjustments received on the old form will be returned for resubmission using the new process. This change is for submitting adjustments on PAPER only.
Adjustments are no longer being keyed into the legacy MMIS. Reversals are no longer being accepted for the legacy MMIS with the exception of Magellan reversals. Magellan reversals will be processed through October 19, 2017. This will allow claims data to be migrated from the legacy MMIS to the new MMIS. If you mail a paper adjustment during this time, it will be processed after November 1 in the order it was received. Beginning November 1, you can enter adjustments into the new HealthCare Provider Portal and reversals can also be submitted.
New Crossover Forms
The new EOMB attachment – Form DMS-600 (PDF, new window), along with your crossover claim and the original EOMB must be submitted for paper crossover claims to DXC Technology, PO Box 34440, Little Rock, AR 72203.
Paper crossover claims submitted on the former proprietary crossover claim forms will be returned for resubmission using the new process. This change is for submitting crossovers on PAPER only.

Due to the new
MMIS system conversion, the MAPIR application will be offline starting 10/1/17, until further notice. The latest time to submit using MAPIR before the downtime is 9/30/17 at 11:59pm.

Arkansas Medicaid appreciates your compliance with this early request.
