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.
 

 

To filter Provider Notices by specific Provider Category, by Notice Year, or to apply both Filters simultaneously, please click the dropdown for the desired Filter(s), choose the desired value, and click Apply Filter. To apply both Filters simultaneously, you must click Apply Filter separately for each Filter. To remove all filters, click the Clear All Filters button.

Please note that when you filter by category, all Provider Notices tagged with your chosen Provider Category will be returned, including those that apply to multiple Provider Categories.
