Provider Outreach Sites
As a direct medical service provider, you have the opportunity to contract with the Medical Assistance Programs (MAP) to assist patients with the application process for state health insurance programs.
The Office of Healthy Kids works closely with MAP to ensure that providers receive timely information about medical programs, trainings on assisting families with the Healthy Kids/OHP application and access to local community partners. We are happy to assist you through the process of becoming an outreach site.
Becoming an Outreach Site
If your facility has a current contract with the Medical Assistance Programs (MAP) becoming an outreach site is a simple process:
- Complete a one-time agreement, referred to as the Addendum.
- Upon receiving your completed Addendum, we will issue you a unique alphanumeric date stamp code. From there, you will purchase a date stamp from any office supply vendor.
If your facility is not currently contracted with MAP and would like to, please visit MAP’s Provider Enrollment webpage for more information.
Duties and Responsibilities
A brief summary of the duties and responsibilities for contracted outreach facilities is below.
- Purchase a date stamp with your date stamp/outreach code on it.
- Order applications to keep on site.
- Send at least one staff to a free, in-depth training. View the training schedule here.
- Complete simple quarterly reports.
- Offer uninsured patients a date stamped application. If you are unable to assist patients with completing the application onsite, our office is happy to work with you to set up a referral system with a local application assister.
- Review the extent to which outreach sites can promote Healthy Kids or other state medical insurance programs in marketing materials.
