Filing a claim
Please be sure to verify eligibility prior to submitting a claim. Utilize the member ID card to submit the accurate member name, date of birth and ID number.
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)
We strongly encourage you to submit your claims electronically!
- Decreased submission costs (printing, handling, mailing, etc.)
- Faster processing and reimbursement
- Allows for documentation of timely filing
- Data submission accuracy (eliminates keystroke errors)
EDI submission is available for all claims (including those with primary insurance coverage). Note: When a member’s primary insurance is WellCare Liberty (FKA ONECare) and their secondary insurance is Care1st, our system automatically coordinates processing for these services and no secondary submission is required for all services other than Home Health Care, Durable Medical Equipment, MSIC/IC, or FQHC/RHC services. For these secondary exceptions a secondary red and white paper claim is required with a copy of the primary remittance advised attached
