UCare will add back the second claims payment run the week of Memorial Day for Individual and Family Plans and Medicare Plans. Usually during the week of a holiday, there is only one payment run. For the week of May 25-29, remit payments will occur Wednesday and Friday for the specified plans. UCare will send remits up to three business days after payment is made on a claim. Claim status and remits can be accessed via UCare’s Provider Portal.
UCare is committed to protect our members and the community from the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). The COVID-19 situation is changing quickly, and we are monitoring changes closely. To assist our provider partners in navigating this changing situation, UCare has created a COVID-19 Information for Health Care Providers page on our Provider Website.
In November 2019, UCare issued a Provider Bulletin requiring Medicare Certified Home Health Care providers to submit claims in accordance with CMS billing guidelines. A new bulletin has been issued to provide additional clarification.
UCare’s 2020 Provider Manual contains critical information that providers need to know to effectively work with UCare and our members. It is important that providers reference the online manual regularly for up-to-date content. The Provider Manual has been updated to reflect current business practices. UCare has prepared a Provider Bulletin outlining the key updates.
