Possible delay in February and March for some ID cards
In light of recent marketplace activities, Wellmark is making an accommodation to the timeline required for individuals and small groups to submit applications for coverage with a February 1, 2015 effective date. We will also extend the deadline for applications for small group coverage beginning March 1, 2015. In both cases, this may cause a delay in sending ID cards to some of our members. If a Wellmark member visits your office in February or March prior to receiving his or her ID card, please use the “Member Number Lookup” feature within the Check Member Information tool. Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we try to meet the needs of our members.
Avoid returned applications by using current forms
Here’s some important information for the contracting and credentialing specialists in your organization. Only current applications and forms to participate in Wellmark’s networks will be accepted. Older versions of these documents will not be processed. To avoid having these documents sent back to you, always use the current forms on the Credentialing and Contracting page. In November, Wellmark streamlined the addendum to the Iowa Statewide Universal Practitioner Credentialing Application, and introduced a new practitioner application for South Dakota. Many of Wellmark’s own applications also got a facelift. So get rid of those old forms, and bookmark the Credentialing and Contracting page today.
