HCSIS BIT: Entering Medicaid Numbers and Identifiers
August 11, 2002

With the implementation of the HCSIS Phase 2.0 functionality, the Alternate Identifiers screen, used to enter the Medicaid (MA) number, has moved. The new menu path is Individual > Demographics > Alt ID > Demographics - Alternate Identifiers. This screen is now located before the Primary Demographics screen. Please use this screen to enter the MA number as well as other identifiers for the individual such as Social Security Number, Base Service Unit Number, etc.

Once the MA number is entered into this screen it will automatically pre-populate the Medicaid screen in the Demographics module of HCSIS. For more information on how to enter the MA number into HCSIS, please see the Demographics Update located on the LMS at www.humanservices-r.state.pa.us.
