Providers must be enrolled with WV Medicaid and CHIP to ensure that prescriptions are processed and paid.  Failing to enroll as a prescribing provider could cause your patients' prescriptions to be denied at the pharmacy.  ​If you are not already enrolled, please visit https://www.wvmmis.com and enroll online as a billing provider or as an "ORP Only Provider."  The quickest enrollment option is the ORP-Only online application process.  To prevent interruptions in member's access to needed prescription medications, prescribers must make sure they are enrolled with West Virginia Medicaid.
