Submit Multiple Clinical Claim Appeal Requests Online

May 20, 2022

As of May 22, 2022, you can electronically initiate one clinical claim appeal request for multiple claims, when it’s for the same patient and denial reason, using the Availity® Claim Status tool. 

As a reminder, a Clinical Appeal is a request to change an adverse determination for care or services when a claim is denied based on lack of medical necessity, or when services are determined to be experimental, investigational, or cosmetic. 

By using the online appeal request option, you can: 

  • Check/manage status
  • Upload clinical medical records with submission
  • View and print confirmation and decision letter
  • Generate a Dashboard view of appeal-related activity
