Important Message affecting your Provider Service Center Access

This form allows our participating providers to update directory information, including but not limited to Primary Care Physician (PCP) acceptance status, address, phone, fax, locations and more.
Note: The effective date for provision of services by each new Participating Provider is contingent upon the approval by Geisinger Health Plan's Credentialing Committee.
Claims & E-transactions
Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) and Electronic Explanation of Payment (835 Transaction)
In June 2016, GHP will replace paper check payments to providers with Claim Payment Cards. Claim Payment Cards are processed like any other credit/debit card payment you receive through the mail or by phone and are subject to existing merchant processing rates. To avoid receiving Claim Payment Cards, register for free EFT/ERA transactions from GHP.
To receive GHP payments directly deposited into your bank account and/or to begin receiving electronic remittance advice/835, please register at http://www.instamed.com/eraeft or complete the InstaMed Network Funding Agreement to be faxed or mailed to InstaMed.
If you have questions regarding registration, please contact InstaMed at (866) 945-7990 or firstname.lastname@example.org about this free solution.
EDI Claims Submission
Please use the GHP's Payer ID Number (75273) when submitting claims via AllScripts, Emdeon, or Relay Health. Please contact the following for more information:
To ensure efficient and timely reconsideration of claim payment/denial appeals, please utilize the Claims Research Request Form (CRRF) to initiate a reconsideration of a previously paid or denied claim. Please make copies of the blank form as necessary and retain a copy of the completed forms for your records or submit electronically via NaviNet.

When to use a CRRF

- Timely Filing Denials – Only when there is a compelling reason for why the provider failed to submit timely.
- When information on a PAID CLAIM needs to be corrected (e.g., late charges, incorrect diagnosis, incorrect procedure code, incorrect revenue code, incorrect modifier, invalid Member ID, location code).
When NOT to use a CRRF
- Non-Participating Provider
- Claim Retractions – Providers should initiate through Customer Service on Secured Message via Web.
