The Department of Healthcare and Family Services maintains a web site for the Medical Electronic Data Interchange (MEDI), on which registered users may verify an individual's
Medicaid eligibility status. The web site contains information on how to use the system.
After this one-time registration, you may use MEDI to verify individual Medicaid enrollment. Medicaid Waiver providers may not use the MEDI system to submit claims or to access remittance advices.
Note: If you get a message "Eligible for DHS social services," it means that the individual is not enrolled in Medicaid. Many individuals have been assigned a DHS Recipient ID Number (RIN) without being enrolled
