AHCCCS extends ROPA registration through public health emergency

Applicable to: Mercy Care Complete Care, Mercy Care RBHA, Mercy Care Long Term Care, Mercy Care DCS CHP, Mercy Care DD and Mercy Care Advantage
Due to the continuing public health emergency and in an effort to ensure that no AHCCCS member experiences disruptions in care, AHCCCS will further extend the registration deadline for Referring, Ordering, Prescribing and Attending (ROPA) providers to January 1, 2022 or the end of the COVID-19 public health emergency, whichever comes later.

In order to ensure that providers meet this extended deadline, AHCCCS will release additional guidance specifically for referring and ordering providers, prescribing providers, and attending providers in June 2021.

For additional information about ROPA, visit the AHCCCS ROPA web page.

As always, don't hesitate to contact your Mercy Care Network Management Representative with any questions or comments. You can find this notice and all other provider notices on our Mercy Care website.

Thanks for all you do!
