Problem areas with attestations l.jpg

Problem Areas with Attestations

  • Getting into MAPIR:

    • You must have a User ID for the VT Medicaid Portal

    • The User ID you use must be associated somehow with the Provider’s Medicaid ID whose attestation is under consideration

      • In the VT Medicaid procedures, this is the concept of a “Trading Partner ID” as you or your practice, hospital or group is establishing a Trading Partner relationship for purposes of Electronic Data Interchange (EDI).

    • Review the web document that discusses this issue:

Problem areas continued l.jpg

Problem areas (continued)

  • Administrative challenges

    • Association of group identification and group data to providers being grouped together in MAPIR

      • This is our (VT’s) problem, not yours (Providers)

      • Proceeding with caution to make certain our processes and the data that results is accurate and appropriate

      • But we do expect to approve our first payments next week

    • Staffing issues

      • Funding came late; haven’t hired for positions

      • Chose to not delay the launch
