HFS Training on New ABE Partner Portal Functionality

June 25, 2019

MEMORANDUM

The Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) has issued a notice to hospital providers announcing informational webinar training dates to review the reporting of a newborn birth, a new functionality in the Application for Benefits Eligibility (ABE) Partner Portal. This new functionality will allow hospital staff to electronically report the birth of a newborn when the mother is a Medicaid recipient.

HFS is offering this webinar training to avoid account creation errors and to be sure staff are completing required paperwork and properly using the functionality. All hospital staff, including contract staff, who are responsible for assisting with patient insurance issues should take the training.  Individual staff at your hospital will need to create an account on the ABE website and complete an HFS form prior to using this new ABE Partner Portal functionality.
