Accessing the CHAMPS System

To access the CHAMPS system you must register for your MILogin user ID and password. For instructions on how to obtain a user ID and password as well as subscribe for CHAMPS see MILogin Instructions. Make sure all users in your organization that will need access to CHAMPS receive a MILogin user ID and password.

MDHHS recommends all organizations keep a list of their user IDs. The MILogin user that submits the application, once approved, will become the Provider Domain Administrator for that application. That user will have to assign rights for all other users within the organization.

Predictive Modeling

Predictive Modeling, a pre-payment claims process in CHAMPS, uses advanced screening technology to identify Medicaid claims in which there are billing irregularities. Claims flagged by the predictive modeling process will undergo a detailed analysis to determine the next step(s) to be taken.  This may include a review of medical records and/or past claims.  Providers must submit the requested records in a timely manner to avoid denials for lack of documentation.

Document Management Portal (DMP)

MDHHS launched a new enhancement to CHAMPS.  This implementation introduced Phase I of the Document Management Portal (DMP) for CHAMPS users to now access.  This tool will enable providers to electronically submit supporting documentation for Medicaid claims filed electronically through CHAMPS, software vendor or DEG, submit consent forms, and submit records requested for Predictive Modeling requirements.  Users will notice changes on the CHAMPS screens.

Highlight of new features include:
  1.  A new UPLOAD/VIEW document button is located in PROVIDER PORTAL
  2.  New Icons are displayed when viewing the claim detail in CLAIM INQUIRY
  3.  When adjusting a claim an UPLOAD/VIEW document button is displayed on the claim header pages
  4.  When submitting a claim through CHAMPS Direct Data Entry, there will be an UPLOAD DOCUMENTS button displayed after the claim has been submitted.
