EDI Claims Submission
The easiest way to submit EDI claims to Passport Health Plan is through a Clearinghouse. You may submit the EDI claims through your own clearinghouse or use Molina’s contracted clearinghouse (see the Clearinghouse Information section for Payer ID information). If you do not have a Clearinghouse, Passport offers additional electronic claims submissions options. Log on to Availity's Provider Portal for additional information about claims submission options available to you.
270/271 Healthcare Eligibility Benefit Inquiry and Response & 276/277 Healthcare Claim Status Request and Response
Passport does not directly exchange 270/271 and 276/277 transactions. The 270/271 and 276/277 transactions are handled by Molina’s contracted clearinghouse Change Healthcare. The transactions may be sent directly to Change Healthcare or via your own clearinghouse.
278 Referral Certification and Authorization Form
The 278 Request transaction is utilized to verify medical necessity for health care services; therefore, additional supporting documentation may be necessary for approval of requested services.
