A.

Yes, in order to submit EVV data to eMedNY, you must be enrolled in NY Medicaid. Enrolled providers will be able to utilize their eMedNY credentials (MMIS ID or NPI) to begin the process of submitting EVV Data with the eMedNY web service restFUL API.

Outline below are the steps to follow:

  • Step 1: Enroll as a NYS Medicaid Provider and get an MMIS ID, if not currently enrolled
  • Step 2: Determine who will be your "submitter" (you can be your own submitter)
  • Step 3: If your submitter is not yet enrolled as a Medicaid Provider, have them enroll as well
  • Step 4: Have the submitter obtain the login credentials for the eMedNY Web Portal, so that they can gain access to the API Developer Portal - https://portal.emedny.org
  • Step 5: Using web portal credentials, login to https://developer.emednytest.io (available now for testing) OR https://developer.emedny.io (PROD which will be made available later), to request API keys.

Q.

I just tried to register for the Provider Web Portal on the emedny website, and it is requiring a MMIS ID since we do not have an NPI. Where can I get this MMIS ID?

Q.

Our agency is NPI exempt, we have a Medicaid provider MMIS ID. Can we use that to enroll in the Provider Web Portal or should we get an NPI?
