What Is A Core Provider Agreement

Hospitals and providers must re-validate each number of the National Practitioner Identification (CPI) within five years of the date of their pre-validation. The revalidation includes filling in and downloading an updated basic vendor agreement, a clearance statement, the W9 IRS form and additional documents, depending on the type of installation or provider. The validation page and instructions are in www.hca.wa.gov/billers-providers-partners/apple-health-medicaid-providers/revalidation. HCA informed WSHA that ProviderOne was not in a position to search for the date of the revalidation of establishments and suppliers. Entities and suppliers can contact ProviderEnrollment@hca.wa.gov or call 1-800-562-3022 Extension 16137 if they feel they can be properly revalidated but have not received a notification or if they have any questions about the process. (Andrew Busz, andrewb@wsha.org). The Health Care Authority (HCA) recently contacted WSHA about the revalidation process required by the Federal Government. Hospitals and providers that do not complete the revalidation should expect that their Basic Medicaid Provider Agreement will be deactivated and payment interruptions will be deactivated. WSHA recently contacted several hospitals that HCA said had not yet responded to revalidation notifications and were threatened with deactivation.
