How do I become an EDW Provider?
Each partnering health organization must:
          1) Complete a contract with Kansas Department of Health and Environment.
          2) Have a referral relationship with a network of Early Detection Works providers able to provide all of the breast and           cervical continuum needed to complete a diagnosis. This includes: breast and cervical primary care, colposcopy, radiology,           laboratory, biopsy, and anesthesia services.
          3) Participate in payment request training and be willing to submit all payment requests online.

How are payments processed?
EDW uses a cloud based data entry and payment request system to process payments. Typical processing time between submission of payment request and paper check or direct deposit averages forty-four (44) days. During peak times, processing may take up to eight weeks.
