Discover your Provider® solution to streamline enrollment, renewals, and licensing for Medicaid providers throughout Iowa

HHS Technology Group, LLC™ (HTG) announced today that it has partnered with Noridian Healthcare Solutions, LLC (Noridian) and the Iowa Department of Health and Human Services to streamline the state’s Medicaid provider management system.

Iowa’s new provider management system will be powered by HTG’s Discover your Provider® (DyP®) solution. DyP® offers an advanced online provider portal with electronic and self-service capabilities, such as provider enrollment and license verification, with proven success in improved operational efficiencies, added convenience, and simplified processes, resulting in increased cost savings and a better provider experience.

Iowa Medicaid provides medically necessary health care coverage for financially needy adults, children, parents with children, people with disabilities, older Iowans, and pregnant women to help them live healthy, stable, and self-sufficient lives. Approximately 25% of the state’s population is enrolled in a covered Medicaid program, and nearly 1 in 2 children in Iowa are served by Medicaid.

“As a result of improved provider management processes, Iowa Medicaid patients will experience better care delivery, reduced wait times, and healthier outcomes,” said Bradley White, CEO of HTG. “We are proud to partner with the Iowa Department of Health and Human Services and Noridian to further its important mission of delivering crucial care to underserved populations.”

“Enabling access to quality health care for all individuals is the why behind everything we do at Noridian. We are excited to work with HTG towards our common goal of improving the experience of providers participating in Iowa Medicaid, so they can focus on delivering care to Iowans,” says Jon Bogenreif, president and CEO of Noridian. In addition to facilitating and promoting greater provider participation, DyP® leverages a modular design for increased functionality and leading-edge technology to streamline once-seemingly cumbersome and time-consuming processes. The significant value delivered by DyP® to states and providers includes:

  • Reduced enrollment time for new providers from over one month to under five days and in some cases under 12 hours.
  • Significantly reduced state and contractor burden and time from the previous manual process for new applications, renewals, and licensing updates.
  • A fully integrated pharmacy provider enrollment process with streamlined monitoring.
  • A 100% electronic provider agreement process, including signatures.

Notably, DyP® is one of six certified Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) provider solutions, and HTG is among the few companies to obtain certification for multiple modules, as evaluated and awarded by the National Association of State Procurement Officials NASPO) ValuePoint contracting arm. Most recently, HTG’s Recover your Liability® (RyL®) solution, which automates third-party liability functions and integrates with other MMIS modules, earned NASPO ValuePoint certification.
