Provider Notices

Provider notices and bulletins contain pertinent information for participating providers for medical services provided or for claims submitted for reimbursement.

 
Notices inform providers and billing agents of possible revisions or clarifications of medical services. Bulletins include information about general policy and procedural updates for the various provider handbooks issued by the department.
