ICD-10 Second Survey Starts May 15th!
We are excited to announce our newest ICD-10 survey. This survey provides additional information that will enable Alaska Medicaid to further assist you as you move through your migration for ICD-10.
This second survey is available for all Alaska Medicaid providers May 15 through June 30, 2013. Click on this link to participate in the Alaska Medicaid ICD-10 survey. The survey should be completed by the individual in your organization responsible for planning, implementing, and/or managing the transition from using the ICD-9 codes to the ICD-10 codes.
Why Should I Complete this Survey?
The objective of the survey is to determine your anticipated impacts by the implementation of the ICD-10 codes and to help the Alaska Medical Assistance ICD-10 team understand the extent of the impact and your efforts to prepare for this transition. The information will also be used in the creation of additional training, website articles and future email blasts.

Mandatory Re-enrollment Has Begun
The Alaska Department of Health and Social Services’ current Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) is transitioning to Alaska Medicaid Health Enterprise.
The first phase of this transition requires re-enrollment of all active providers* who want to continue participation in the Alaska Medical Assistance Program.
Re-enrollment is necessary to collect additional data elements required by the new MMIS and to ensure Alaska Medical Assistance Program records are up-to-date and in compliance with federal and state regulations.
Completing the re-enrollment process will not impact existing provider identification numbers, billing requirements, or Alaska Medicaid claims processing and adjudication for our enrolled provider community at this time.
Online re-enrollment training is available at https://learn.medicaidalaska.com.
Providers who have received their re-enrollment notice containing their unique authorization code can get started with the re-enrollment process at the Alaska Medicaid Provider Enrollment Portal at https://enroll.medicaidalaska.com.
If you have any questions concerning the Alaska Medicaid Health Enterprise re-enrollment process, please contact the Re-enrollment staff at 907.644.5993 or in-state, toll-free at 888.944.6877.
* Providers who initially enrolled after September 1, 2012 may disregard this message.
