We wanted to make sure you and your billing teams were aware that effective October 1, 2019, the PPO provider network for the Whirlpool Corporate members will change to the United Healthcare Choice Plus Network. In addition, Whirlpool plan members will continue to have in-network access to all of the Lakeland Care Network providers as they have had in the past.
As you know, Cofinity is migrating to a new claims repricing platform that requires a change in the traditional Cofinity claim submission workflow. The new platform will streamline their administrative processes and help them improve the service they provide to you and payer clients.
