FLASH: Provider Directory Updates through LexisNexisJuly 30, 2019
As you know, it is vital your patients have access to accurate, up-to-date information in the provider directory. To ensure this accuracy, the Illinois Department of Human Services, the Illinois Department of Insurance, and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services all require that providers review and update their information quarterly or whenever there is a significant change.
To help you meet this requirement, we have partnered with the search firm LexisNexis Risk Solutions and American Medical Association Business Solutions. They will be reaching out on a quarterly basis by one or more of their three communication channels (phone, fax, and Verify Health Care Portal) to verify that your provider information is accurate.
As a reminder, here is the directory information that must be reviewed and updated:
- Ability to accept new patients
- Street address
- Phone number
- Office hours
- Hospital privileges
- Any other information that affects availability to the patient
Members must be able to call the phone number listed in our provider directory and make an appointment with that specific provider at that location.
If you have any questions or have trouble with your updates, please contact your provider relations specialist or call our Provider Services team at 1-800-851-3379, option 3.
Thank you for your cooperation in this important initiative.
