Program Year 2017 Application Deadline
If you wish to apply for an EHR incentive payment for Program Year 2017, you must submit your application/attestation by March 31, 2018. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Electronic Funds Transfer – ACTION Required NOW!
All providers have been notified that Arkansas Medicaid will no longer produce and mail paper checks. Providers must now utilize electronic fund transfer (EFT), which allows your Medicaid payments to be directly deposited into your bank account. If you already receive your Medicaid payments by EFT, then no further action is required.
If you DO NOT receive EFT payments for Medicaid services you provide, you must take action NOW to ensure that you continue to receive Medicaid payments.
- Complete the Electronic Fund (EFT) Authorization for Automatic Deposit (Word, new window), located in Section V of your provider manual.
- Return the completed EFT authorization form along with a voided check or letter from your bank reflecting the bank’s ABA number and your account number before February 28, 2018 to
Medicaid Provider Enrollment Unit
P.O. Box 8105
Little Rock, AR 72203-8105
If you do not take action by February 28, 2018, your provider number will be suspended until the EFT information is received.
