North Dakota Medicaid

Provider Application Information & FormsDeco Line

The information below is for electronically submitted North Dakota Medicaid applications using the new North Dakota MMIS Web Portal. A printable PDF version is linked below for reference/distribution.

The N.D. Department of Human Services is working on the new ND Medicaid claims processing system: ND Health Enterprise MMIS.

The Department has worked on ND Health Enterprise MMIS for many years and has experienced several delays. The Department is carefully reviewing claims payment and testing to ensure ND Health Enterprise MMIS can support claims payment before the final decision is made to complete the transition to the new system.

The Department will keep providers posted on the implementation date that is identified after it is confident that the system will meet critical business requirements.


The new MMIS now under development will offer providers a user-friendly self-service web portal that has new features and benefits. 

  • Use the MMIS web portal now to enroll electronically. This is required for all new and existing providers with the exception of Individual Qualified Service Providers (QSPs) and Developmental Disability Providers.
  • Use the MMIS web portal at a later date to directly enter claims, upload batch transactions, and get real-time access to member eligibility, claims status, remittance advice, payment status and claims history.
Need help? Contact Automated Health Systems at 855-238-4848 or ndproviderservices@automated-health.com. Developmental Disability Providers should call 701-328-8983 or toll free 800-755-8529.
