Why does registration for EFT/ERA require that I have received a paper check payment from Molina Healthcare?

The reason behind this necessity is to ensure that the person registering the Provider has the authority to do so, and is aware of the Explanation of Payment (EOP) name and address information – while registering with ProviderNet.

  • An initial payment to at least one Tax ID + NPI association is necessary to become eligible for EFT thru ProviderNet.
  • If the Provider has multiple NPIs associated to one Tax ID, then only one affiliation needs a paper check number.
  • If the Provider has multiple Tax IDs and NPIs, then each Tax ID would need a minimum of one paper check from Molina.
