Interested in Becoming a Medicaid Provider?

Medicaid covers more than 1 million North Carolinians who are in need of financial assistance for their health care services. The North Carolina Division of Medical Assistance (DMA) administers the state's Medicaid program.

If you are a new provider and are interested in participating in the North Carolina Medicaid program, you must enroll through the DMA. Previously, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina handled the enrollment of providers in the Medicaid program. Effective January 1, 2005, the enrollment process will now be handled by the DMA.

You can obtain the necessary application and enrollment change forms online at the DMA Web site at http://www.dhhs.state.nc.us/dma. Information is also available in the December 2004 Medicaid Bulletin, or you can contact DMA Provider Services at (919) 855-4050 if you need further assistance.

Please note that in the future you will need to notify both DMA and BCBSNC when demographic changes are necessary. Keeping demographic information up-to-date is critical in order to ensure appropriate notification and payment of claims.
