CHAMPS Provider Enrollment is Live!
Medicaid has implemented a new online Provider Enrollment system. The new system is specifically structured to comply with NPI standards. All current HIPAA-Covered* Fee-For-Service** Michigan Medicaid Providers, including Out-of-State Providers but excluding Pharmacy Providers, must access to CHAMPS to enroll in the Michigan Medicaid Program. The CHAMPS Provider Enrollment subsystem allows Providers to enroll and update data quickly and easily in addition to offering improved provider support and services.
CHAMPS online provider enrollment and maintenance replaces the paper enrollment process. New Providers can access the CHAMPS system to track the status of their application.
CHAMPS is a NPI based system and all providers, groups and/or facilities (unless otherwise exempt) must obtain and register their NPI with the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) prior to enrollment in CHAMPS.
All new providers must have their SSN or EIN/TIN enrolled with Vendor Registration prior to enrolling within the PE subsystem. To register your SSN or EIN/TIN visit http://www.mi.gov/cpexpress.
