Electronic signatures not currently accepted:

We have received a number of questions from providers about electronic signatures for provider enrollment documents. Minnesota Health Care Programs (MHCP) does not accept electronic signatures on provider enrollment related documentation at this time. An electronic signature, or e-signature, refers to data in electronic form (for example, an electronic symbol). A digital signature is generated using DocuSign or other software. Neither electronic nor digital signatures are permitted.

You are permitted to print the required MHCP document, sign it and scan or take a picture of the document to send back to your employers or credentialing staff for submission to Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) Provider Eligibility and Compliance (PEC). PEC is required to ensure authenticity and to be sure that a signer can’t deny that a signature belongs to that person.

DHS may be reviewing this more closely at a later date to determine if electronic or digital signatures can be accepted, but in the meantime, please note that timely filing guidelines allow providers to bill up to one year from the original date of service. Please refer to the Enrollment with Minnesota Health Care Programs webpage and ensure individual providers are qualified to provide services. We encourage providers to continue to provide necessary services. Please complete MHCP provider enrollment documents and get required signatures and submit them to us as quickly as possible. It is important that the provider maintain a record of services they provide, including the date.
