Claim and encounter addresses
To decrease administrative costs and improve cash flow, clinicians and facilities are encouraged to use electronic claim submission whenever possible.
When it is necessary to submit paper claims, you can use the addresses below. Please keep in mind, however, that the claim or encounter mailing address on the member’s identification card is always the most appropriate to use.
Valid National Provider Identifiers (NPIs) are required on all electronic claims and strongly encouraged on paper claims.
