Is revalidating as a provider the same thing as recertifying or updating my provider credentials?

In South Carolina, no, provider revalidation is not the same thing as recertification. However, some states use terms such as “revalidating,” “recertifying” or “recredentialing” interchangeably.  South Carolina Healthy Connections Medicaid provider revalidation could possibly be different from other states’ recertification process and certification updates required for specific provider types. For example, a certified nurse practitioner who is also a Medicaid provider needs to ensure that they have completed the provider revalidation process with South Carolina Healthy Connections Medicaid and that they have been recertified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. The two processes are separate. Revalidation FAQs PDF
