New Legislation Waives $100 Medicaid and NC Health Choice Provider Enrollment Fee

Effective Jan. 9, 2022, NCTracks will no longer require Medicaid and NC Health Choice providers to pay the $100 NC application fee with enrollment and re-verification applications. This change is made pursuant to NC Senate Bill 105 Session Law 2021-180 Section 9D.9(a), which waives the fee until June 30, 2023.

Although the NCTracks system change is effective Jan. 9, 2022, the legislation became effective on Nov. 18, 2021. Therefore, NC Medicaid will identify and automatically refund the NC application fee paid by any provider who submitted an enrollment or reverification application on or after Nov. 18, 2021, through the Jan. 9, 2022 system modification.
