Provider Manual

The following sections of the Arkansas Medicaid provider manual apply to all provider types. For information specific to your provider type, refer to Section II of that provider manual.

Aid Categories to Benefit Plans Crosswalks

Aid Categories currently found in Section I [124.000] of your provider manual are now known as “Benefit Plans.” Benefit plans will eventually replace aid categories in Section I. Until these changes have been promulgated and incorporated into Medicaid policy, we offer the following crosswalks to assist you.
