Some key features:

  • On the eMedNY home page, you will notice a new Provider Enrollment Tab at the top of the page. Also, note the link located on the upper left panel. These now go directly to Provider Enrollment. (Note - you may still arrive at Provider Enrollment by going to the Information Tab first.)

There you will find an introduction to NY Medicaid, (a Provider Enrollment Guide), links to the Provider Maintenance Forms Page and links to new Rate Based Enrollment Form Web Pages for Institutional Providers.
