Welcome to the Medical Assistance Intercept System

The State of Rhode Island Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS) is proud to announce its Medical Assistance Intercept System (MAIS).

Effective July 1, 2012, Rhode Island passed Article 11 of the FY13 Budget law (P.L. 2012, Ch. 241), thereby creating R.I.G.L. Chapter 27-57.1 the Medical Assistance Intercept Act. All insurance companies who conduct business in the State of Rhode Island are required to participate in the MAIS Program.

MAIS will electronically match Rhode Island Medicaid recipients with liability and workers’ compensation insurance claims. Insurance companies and attorneys will have the option of doing either a data match through the Insurance Services Office (ISO) ClaimSearch or utilizing the MAIS interactive lookup system. MAIS is designed to intercept payments of $500 or more for reimbursement to the State of Rhode Island’s Medicaid Program.
