Registration is one of the first tasks you must complete in the MEDI Authorization System in order to access applications available over the Internet that require authorization.
Registration provides HFS with information about you and your employer, and allows HFS to authorize you for functions and applications available over the Internet.
To understand the differences between your employer and how a business is defined in the MEDI System, you should review the Definition of a Business in the MEDI System topic.
There are basically two types of registration:
Business Registration is for people that are the administrator for a business such as a Medicaid Provider, Payee, Payor or Other Business. These individuals will act on behalf of the business, delegating authorization to employees and other businesses.
Employee Registration is for people that are employees of a registered business. Their authorization must be delegated to them by their administrator.
The type of registration you select defines your relationship to the business, either administrator or employee. You can have different relationships with different businesses at the same time; however, you can only have one relationship with the same business.
In addition, you may register more than once if you:
represent more than one business (e.g. provider, payee or other business),
work for more than one employer,
have changed your relationship to the business,
your employer has more than one relationship with HFS or
a registered business requires a new administrator.
