Mandatory Enrollment with MassHealth
Effective November 3, 2017, each dentist must enroll with MassHealth as an Ordering, Referring and Prescribing (“ORP”) non-billing provider (if not already enrolled with MassHealth as an approved billing provider) before applying for an initial dental license or seeking to renew an existing dental license.
M.G.L. c. 112, s. 45 mandates that the Board of Registration in Dentistry (“Board”) condition the initial issuance or renewal of all dental licenses on a dentist’s application to participate in MassHealth as an ORP non-billing provider unless the dentist is already enrolled as an approved billing provider. Accordingly, you will not be permitted to renew your dental license unless and until you submit an ORP enrollment form to MassHealth. As part of the online licensure renewal process you will be asked to attest that you have submitted an ORP enrollment form directly to MassHealth.
