Medicaid Hosts Webinars for Providers on Approaching Provider Enrollment Deadline for Reimbursement Claims


Louisiana Medicaid is hosting a series of webinars for providers regarding the upcoming provider enrollment deadline. All providers filing claims with Louisiana Medicaid are encouraged to attend.

The information shared will be the same for all webinars, focusing on how to complete registration before the September 30, 2022 deadline. There is no registration for the webinar, but capacity is limited to 1,000 attendees for each webinar. If this capacity is reached, no additional participants will be able to join.

There will be a Q&A opportunity during the webinar. We remind providers with questions to review Information Bulletin 22-4 which provides additional information about provider enrollment in Medicaid and provider resources for questions.

The webinar will be available online for those unable to attend.

The webinars are scheduled on the following dates and times:

  • September 19, 2022
  • September 20, 2022
  • September 21, 2022
  • September 22, 2022
  • September 23, 2022

Providers filing claims with Louisiana Medicaid must register on the new Medicaid Provider Enrollment web portal. Federal laws enforced by CMS, including the Affordable Care Act and the 21st Century Cures Act, require states to screen and register all providers.

The registration portal must be used by Medicaid providers. This includes fee-for-service, managed care organization (MCO), dental insurance program manager (DBPM), and coordinated care system (CSoC) service providers.

The deadline to submit an application for registration is September 30. Providers should allow several weeks from the time the application is submitted to when enrollment is considered complete.

The September 30 deadline applies:

  • Providers registered with Fee for Service (FFS) Medicaid before December 31, 2021.
  • Suppliers registered with an MCO, DBPM or Magellan before March 31, 2022.

If you are in this situation and you have not completed your registration before the deadline, your requests will be refused as of January 1, 2023.

If providers are unsure of their registration status, a Provider Portal registration search tool is available at www.lamedicaid.com. Data elements that can be used for searching include NPI, provider name, provider type, specialty, address, city and state, or zip code. The results shown will indicate the supplier’s status as Enrollment Completed, Action Required, or In Process by Gainwell. Suppliers not listed in the results are not required to register at this time. Invitation letters for these vendors will be sent at a later date. The search tool is updated daily and the results can be downloaded.

If your information has not been processed within 15 business days, please contact Gainwell Technologies by emailing [email protected] or by contacting 1-833-641-2140 for an update. registration status and next steps needed to complete the process.
