Claims denied for non-enrolled providers

Enroll with the NYS Medicaid program to help avoid claim denials

Effective Sept. 1, 2022, we will deny all claims for providers who are not enrolled in the New York State Medicaid Program, regardless of their network status with UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of New York. Per the regulatory requirement, §5005(b)(2) of the 21st Century Cures Act and 42 CFR §438.602, the State of New York requires all Medicaid Managed Care (MMC) network furnishing, ordering, prescribing or referring providers to be enrolled with the New York State (NYS) Medicaid program.

As previously stated in the January 2018 Medicaid Update Newsletter (, non-enrolled providers must enroll in the NYS Medicaid Program by Sept. 1, 2022, to avoid denial of claims.
