Enhancements to

As the next phase in the website redesign, all of the old content is being removed from the website. The out-of-date content will be removed after the close of business on May 28.  You'll see a new landing page when you go to log in to any DODD applications.  This new page includes key links based on your role, and a link back to the homepage.
Because of this change, any bookmarks to these pages no longer will work.  All content has been updated and added to the website - you can bookmark any of these new pages.  You can access any applications, such as the Provider Certification Wizard (PCW) and the Medicaid Services System (MSS), by clicking on the log in button at the top of the screen.  This reference guide has tips on where to find commonly used information.
We hope you find the new website easier to use.  If you have questions or comments, please send an email to
