WVCH Provider Support
Starting September 3, 2019, the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) will deny prescriptions written by non-Oregon Health Plan (OHP) providers
Federal Medicaid program integrity regulations require all providers who write prescriptions for Medicaid members to be enrolled as a Medicaid provider in the member’s state. Otherwise, Medicaid cannot cover the prescription. This is true even if the provider is enrolled as a Medicaid provider in a different state.
Starting September 3, 2019, OHA and WVCH will deny prescription claims that do not contain the National Provider Identifier (NPI) of an active, enrolled Oregon Medicaid provider.
How to enroll
To enroll with OHA, visit OHA's Provider Enrollment page.
