Last week, the Ohio Department of Medicaid erroneously sent 4,200 Ohio Medicaid providers a letter stating that they had been terminated and/or excluded from Ohio Medicaid. These letters are to be disregarded in full.
The letters, sent on March 18, were sent due to a system error. The system issue has been resolved, and all affected providers have been restored to an “active” status.
The Department of Medicaid says that its initial review of the incident suggests that the list of 4,200 providers that received the erroneous letter was entirely random.
If you received this letter and have any questions, please contact the Department of Medicaid at 1-800-686-1516.
