The information that identifies and describes a specific Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP) provider is called a provider profile. When information about your business changes, you are required to submit a profile update to the IHCP within 10 business days. Profile updates must be submitted electronically using the IHCP Provider Healthcare Portal (Portal) or by mail, using the appropriate paper forms.
Note: The following options do not apply to ordering, prescribing, and referring (OPR) providers. If you are updating an OPR enrollment, see Ordering, Prescribing, or Referring Providers on this website.
A change of ownership (CHOW) is treated as a new enrollment rather than an update. To report a CHOW, the provider must submit a new application, either online through the Portal (selecting Change of Ownership as the provider request type) or by mail using the appropriate IHCP provider packet completed in its entirety, including the Change of Ownership Addendum. (To access the appropriate IHCP provider packet, go to Complete an IHCP Provider Enrollment Application and select your provider type.)
The following must be submitted along with the enrollment application:
- Appropriate licensure or other supporting documentation
- A copy of a purchase agreement, bill of sale, or other documentation to verify the CHOW
Making Updates Using the Provider Healthcare Portal
The IHCP Portal is an internet-based solution that offers enhanced reliability, speed, ease of use, and security to providers and other partners doing business with the IHCP. Providers can use the Portal to view and make updates to their provider profile. Delegates with the proper authorization can also access the Portal to view and update profile information.
Making Updates Using Paper Forms
All provider profile updates may be made using paper forms. You may use stand-alone forms designed for certain updates or resubmit a full IHCP provider packet, detailing the updated information.
- The following table provides links to stand-alone forms used to update your provider profile. Select the appropriate form from the list and download it to your computer and complete it, following the directions provided.
- When you are making updates for which no stand-alone form exists, you must submit your updates using the appropriate IHCP provider packet.
- When you are making numerous changes at the same time, you may submit updates using the IHCP provider packet, rather than using multiple stand-alone forms.
- Download and complete the appropriate IHCP provider packet or stand-alone form:

Processing Your Update
For updates submitted by mail, please allow at least 15 business days for processing before checking the status of your update. Submitting updates via the Portal reduces the time needed for processing.
After the Provider Enrollment Unit processes your update, you will be notified of the results.
- If the submission needs correcting or is missing required documentation, the Provider Enrollment Unit will contact you by telephone, email, or mail. This contact is intended to communicate what needs to be corrected, completed, and submitted before the IHCP can process your enrollment transaction.
- If you are updating your profile via the Portal and your submission is rejected for missing or incomplete information, you must start over and submit a new update request that includes all the required information.
- If you are updating your profile via paper form, a letter will be sent indicating what needs to be corrected or attached. When submitting the correction or missing information, providers MUST return the entire completed form or packet, along with a copy of the letter explaining the errors or omissions as a cover sheet.
- If the update request is complete, it will be processed and you will receive a notification.
