Billing & Coding Tips: Steps for faster claims resolution:
Providers only have one appeal right per Priority Health claim. Use the steps below to solve claim issues before submitting an appeal:
- Check the status of your claim: In prism, you’ll find the most up-to-date billing information, claim status and tools to help you get answers
- Submit an informal claim review: Get answers to general questions on the claim including details about the claims process, ambulatory payment classifications edits (APC), billing and more.
- Review your appeal submissions carefully: All submitted appeals are treated as official. Make sure any third-party billing companies using prism on your behalf know this.
- If we receive an incorrect appeal or one submitted by mistake, we'll still treat it as an appeal, comment back, and close the inquiry. There won't be another opportunity to appeal that claim.
