Our online accounts and self-service automated phone system allow you to have 24/7 access to information about claims, benefits and authorizations. One of the most popular features of these tools is being able to look up simple claim information, including check numbers, amount applied to a deductible or coinsurance, or the amount being paid to you.
To reduce our hold times for our provider call center, we’re going to direct those who have basic claims questions to self-service tools.
Effective January 1, 2018, our call center representatives will direct callers with these inquires to our automated phone system or their online account. This change should reduce the wait times you have been experiencing when attempting to speak to a representative.
Our representatives will still assist with all other concerns, including those regarding claim denials.
