Connect for Health Colorado: All claims must be billed directly to the insurer
Jan. 1 marked the start of health insurance for many Coloradans who previously were uncovered. Coloradans can still buy their health plans for 2014 coverage - with or without federal financial assistance - through March 31.
With new insurance in place, it is essential you ask your patients to provide you their carrier and plan information - from their insurance ID cards if possible - so you can properly process your claims. Please note: Connect for Health Colorado cannot process claims from providers. ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BILLED DIRECTLY TO THE APPROPRIATE INSURANCE COMPANY just as you’ve always done.

The American Medical Association has made available a toolkit to enable physicians and their staffs to learn how to use electronic health care transactions to help facilitate point-of-care pricing and improve cash flow.

You can also learn more about electronic eligibility verification.
Connect for Health Colorado asks physicians to educate your patients on insurance options. You can order no-cost brochures and posters through their online store.
