  • Check eligibility and benefits
  • Check claim status
  • Transfer to customer service for provider disputes

For Medicare Advantage, call 877-774-8592. As of July 9, 2019, your menu options now include:

Checking eligibility and/or benefit information and/or the fact that a service has been preauthorized is not a guarantee of payment. Benefits will be determined once a claim is received and will be based upon, among other things, the member’s eligibility and the terms of the member’s certificate of coverage applicable on the date services were rendered. If you have any questions, call the number on the member’s ID card.
