Change in Medicaid Provider Enrollment - IMPACT System
The purpose of this Information Bulletin is to notify Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) Medicaid providers that Illinois is in the process of developing a new provider enrollment system in an effort to modernize the current 30-year-old Medicaid Management Information system (MMIS). The new system, known as Illinois Medicaid Program and Advanced Cloud Technology (IMPACT) is intended to provide a more convenient, streamlined and user-friendly experience.
If you are a Medicaid-enrolled provider in Illinois, you should have already received information directly from the Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) about this new enrollment system. Please see more information on the HFS website for IMPACT System.
Current Medicaid Provider Enrollment Forms, completed via paper, are scanned into the Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) maintained by HFS. DDD providers may not be paid for Medicaid-covered services unless these enrollment forms are in place. We are now in the midst of a conversion from this existing system to the new IMPACT system. For more information about IMPACT and the conversion:
Process and Procedure
Additional information will be forthcoming from HFS and DDD as the conversion moves forward. In the meantime, please be aware of the following:

Any comments will be helpful to us for future bulletins on this topic and should be submitted to DHS.DDDComments@Illinois.gov.
