Get faster response to your claims inquiries
Recent feedback from providers has revealed that Wellmark needs to provide more clarity around the provider inquiry process. Some providers, we discovered, do not know that the Ask and Track a Question tool can be used to modify claims, request claim reviews and submit supporting documentation. Instead, these providers continue to submit their inquiries on paper or by fax. The truth is, online inquiries are processed in the same way as those submitted on paper; neither is “more formal” than the other. But there is one difference. Online inquiries are usually less time intensive for the provider, and always result in a faster reply from Wellmark. To ensure providers know about the option to submit inquires online, Wellmark has updated the Provider Inquiry Form to include guidance and hyperlinks to the tool itself. But you don’t need the form to access Ask and Track a Question. We’ve made that easy too. Just log in to the secure Check a Claim tool , find your claim, and select “Inquire or Submit Documents on this Claim” from the drop-down menu. (See screenshot.)
