For dates of service July 1, 2019 and forward, claims will no longer post and pay; instead, they will deny if a valid/enrolled performing provider's NPI is not present on the claim, or if the performing provider is not associated to the clinic.

ATTENTION AMBULANCE PROVIDERS: Per provider bulletin 2019-05 titled Vehicle Registration Information Requirements, effective March 1, 2019, the Department of Social Services (DSS) requires all in-state ambulance providers to have vehicle registration information on file. In-state ambulance providers are required to have a valid Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) on all registered vehicles and will need to provide that information to DXC Technology. Failure to provide the ambulance's current VIN(s) will cause the ambulance provider to be dis-enrolled from the Connecticut Medical Assistance Program (CMAP) and claims will not be processed after the dis-enrollment date. The ambulance provider will then be required to re-enroll with CMAP. DSS will soon begin to validate registrations directly with the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). All ambulance providers need to make sure their vehicles' registrations remain current with the DMV, as failure to remain current will cause the ambulance provider to be dis-enrolled from CMAP. Ambulance providers can provide their VIN(s) for their fleet of ambulances by logging on to their Secure Web portal account at www.ctdssmap.com and using the "Maintain Vehicle Information" panel. Please refer to provider bulletin 2019-05 for further instructions.
