In addition, the Medical Records Tracking page has been enhanced to include a copy of the Additional Documentation Request (ADR) Letter,
Review Results Letter and the outcome of the review, for all claims with an ADR date that is issued on or after 1/1/2016.

12/03/2015:   “New” Login Requirements
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and HealthDataInsights, Inc. (HDI) are serious about safeguarding Protected Health Information (PHI). As you may be
aware, the issue of cyber-security has become a serious one for all companies due to the growing threat from hackers and malware. In light of these developments, beginning
December 10, 2015, HDI will implement a new “Two Factor Authentication” log in process for all users who log into the Region D Provider Portal.
This new login process will require you to validate your identity with each login attempt through a security code which will be sent to the email address on file.
Click on the Provider Portal User Guide Link to the right for instructions on the new login process.
