The purpose of this transmittal is to inform DC Hospital Providers that the Department of Health Care Finance (DHCF) will only accept and process enrollment of babies born to Medicaid mothers electronically via Citrix. DHCF will no longer accept mail or fax notifications.
The effective date of this new process has changed from July 1, 2015 to August 17, 2015 to allow providers time to complete and submit the Citrix Application form. Effective August 17, 2015, all birth notifications must be submitted to ESA electronically, via Citrix, from hospitals and birthing centers. It is imperative to have a unified reporting process to minimize any delays in processing and for prompt enrollment of these children into DC Medicaid by ESA.
