Provider Enrollment & Maintenance

SD Medicaid is in process of changing how its provider enrollment data is accessed and stored. A new Provider Enrollment Portal, similar to the Medicaid Portal used for claims, will be used to enroll and access existing provider enrollment data.

The existing provider enrollment applications and record modifications are in process of being reviewed by SD Medicaid and migrated for use in the portal. We apologize for the inconvenience as this means that we are unable to accept any new applications or make updates to existing records unless an exception occurs.

The new Provider Enrollment Portal is expected to come online in late February to early March. Existing billing provider contacts will receive additional communication about administrator account set-up. Information about how to request administrator accounts and complete enrollment activities will be posted to this website in the coming weeks. In the meantime, providers should retain a list of items that will need attention once the portal is online, bookmark this page as a favorite and check back regularly, and sign-up for the Medicaid Provider Enrollment listserv if not already a member.
