New and Existing Provider Registration

Welcome to the TennCare Registration Home page for new and existing providers. Individual providers can submit key information to obtain a Medicaid ID for a new provider and existing providers can enter key information which will allow us to receive updates electronically. No matter if you are a new provider to TennCare / Medicaid or an existing TennCare / Medicaid provider; you will need to register your information here. TennCare is now using web-based technology to simplify and improve the provider registration / re-verification process. Individual providers only need to register once to be added to the TennCare CAQH roster.  Once registered all other updates should be maintained in CAQH.  Single and multi-specialty groups will register and update their data and members from this web portal.  All other provider entities will continue to submit paper at this time.

Once your registration is approved, you will receive a TennCare/Medicaid ID number.  A valid TennCare/Medicaid ID number is required for participation in TennCare, Tennessee’s Medicaid program.  A valid TennCare/Medicaid ID number is required to:

  1. Submit Medicare/Medicaid “cross-over” claims to TennCare for consideration of Medicare copays and deductibles for our members with Medicare as a primary carrier.
  2. Contract with any TennCare Managed Care Organization in order to provide medically necessary services to TennCare members.
  3. Receive payments from TennCare’s EHR Incentive Program.
