Wisconsin's ForwardHealth Interchange has new Release Date

Wisconsin’s Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) will be retiring soon and replaced by a program called ForwardHealth Interchange. This new software allows providers and clearinghouses, vendors & trading partners to access more information while online.

Wisconsin had initially planned on being ready for this change on October 13th 2008 but has released a new deadline. Also, if you are a trading partner or provider that submits claims electronically directly to Wisconsin's Medicaid program you will need to "test" your connection.
