Urgent Notification:
Currently, some providers submitting Group Applications, Group Changes and Group Revalidations do not have the option in the Online Provider Enrollment system to select associated providers or change individual providers associated with the group. This is a known issue and a fix is being researched. In the meantime, providers can complete the Associate Provider list and submit it with the request. Individual applications are not impacted by this issue. The Associate Provider list is available at the following link:
