Enrollment/screening process for Medicaid providers

Tufts Health RITogether  |  Tufts Health Together  |  Tufts Health Unify

As a reminder, federal regulations require that providers who render services for Medicaid members are screened by and enrolled with the appropriate state Medicaid agency. This requirement applies to providers who participate in Tufts Health RITogether, Tufts Health Together–MassHealth MCO Plan and Accountable Care Partnership Plans (ACPPs) and Tufts Health Unify. Tufts Health Plan has been mailing letters to providers who have yet to complete this enrollment/screening process throughout the year.

Tufts Health RITogether providers may complete this process via the Rhode Island Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS) provider portal. For additional information, please refer to this FAQ and the EOHHS website.

For Tufts Health Together and Tufts Health Unify, complete this screening and enrollment process via the MassHealth website. In addition, this FAQ offers more information.

The Credentialing and Contracting Overview page on our provider website also includes information on this requirement.
