The Georgia Medicaid Management Information System (GAMMIS) serves as the primary web portal for Medicaid,
PeachCare for Kids® and all related waiver programs administered by the Department of Community Health's Medical
Assistance Plans Division. The GAMMIS portal provides timely communications, data exchange and self-service tools
for members and providers with both secure and public access areas.
Members of the public can obtain general information, find a provider and learn more about various Medical Assistance Plans.
Medical Assistance Plan Members can use their ID number and password to enter a secure area to check the status of their
enrollment or a request for prior approval.
Medical Assistance Plan Providers can access a wealth of information including notices, manuals, fee schedules, forms, training
and more. Providers can also enroll to become a participating provider using the Enrollment Wizard, which includes the ability
to track the application status. Once enrolled in Georgia's Medical Assistance Plans, providers can use their Provider ID number
and Personal Identification Number (PIN) to enter a secure area of the portal to access claims and remittance information as well
as confirmation of Medical Assistance Plan member eligibility.
Member and Provider Surveys are conducted from time to time for process and service improvement.
