How to Become a Medicaid Provider

Providers delivering autism spectrum disorder (ASD) services must be enrolled with SCDHHS as a Medicaid provider to deliver and bill for Medicaid state plan benefit ASD services. 

To enroll with SCDHHS as a Medicaid provider:

  1. Prep for Enrollment: Providers will need a national provider identification (NPI) and taxonomy number.
    Apply for individual National Provider Identifier (NPI) number.
    • Use the correct taxonomy code as listed in the provider manual.
  2. Complete and submit the Medicaid provider enrollment application.
  3. SCDHHS will notify providers of successful enrollment.

*Note, BCBA and BCaBA providers must enroll individually. If there is a group practice, a group enrollment must also be completed.

To enroll with one of the managed care organizations (MCOs), a provider must be an approved Medicaid provider. Providers need to contact the MCO directly to complete the network enrollment process. Providers are not required to enroll with a MCO, but they may not be reimbursed by the MCO for services provided to beneficiaries enrolled in managed care.

To enroll with a MCO:

  • Contact each MCO to begin the process of contracting, credentialing and enrolling.
