Home State Health
WellCare Acquisition as you are likely aware, Centene, the parent company of Home State Health recently acquired WellCare, the parent company of Missouri Care. In most markets we are joining our businesses together. In Missouri, however, Missouri Care’s Medicaid product was sold to Anthem. For Home State Health providers, nothing is changing. You should continue to treat members from Home State Health as you do under your current contract. Your existing provider support channels will remain in place and your patients’ current Member ID cards will remain valid as well. We will communicate any relevant changes in health plan operations to you well in advance. If you also participate with Missouri Care, as of January 23, 2020, Anthem is the owner of that product and you should communicate with Anthem regarding their administration of the business. For questions regarding Home State Health, please contact Home State Health Provider Services at 1-855-694-Home (4663).

The Drug Enforcement Administration’s Registration and Program Support Section has identified countless Practitioners and Mid-Level Practitioners’ DEA Registration numbers whose Medical State Licensure and/or their Controlled Substance licensure numbers are past their expiration date, which is in direct violation under Title 21 U.S.C. 823. To assist DEA’s registrant population, DEA is implementing a proactive alert email to remind registrants to renew their state authority in lieu of facing termination of their Federal DEA Registration number.
In the event DEA recognizes an expired state license, the registrant will receive an email 5 days after the expiration of the license, as a reminder to renew the license as soon as possible. If the license has not been corrected 30 days after expiration, the registrant will receive a second notification stating the registration is in jeopardy of having an Order to Show Cause terminate the registration due to non-compliance with Federal law and state compliance.
