Over the past several months, we have published articles in Partners in Health UpdateSM informing you that the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (Department) requires all providers in the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) network to have a PROMISeTM ID for each location at which they treat CHIP members. A PROMISe ID is a Department-issued Provider Reimbursement and Operations Management Information System identification number. It is required for you to receive payment for services rendered to CHIP members.
If you have not yet enrolled with the Department for your PROMISe ID, there is still time to register. Please visit the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services website to access the application, requirements, and step-by-step instructions related to the enrollment process. Providers are encouraged to enroll electronically.
If you have a PROMISe ID, we encourage you to confirm that your office information, including address, is up-to-date. For more information on this requirement, please read our previously published article, Reminder: Important information regarding obtaining a PROMISe ID to render services to CHIP members.
