Request Patient Services
We make it easy for you to request services for your patients. See below for benefit information and instructions to obtain services that enable improved access to care.
CareSource PASSE™ offers sign and language interpreters for members who are:
- Hearing impaired,
- Do not speak English, or
- Have limited English-speaking ability
We can also provide some printed materials in other languages or formats. These services are available at no cost to the member.
As a CareSource PASSE provider, you are required to identify when your patients need interpretation services and offer assistance to them as appropriate. Providers may request interpretation services for an upcoming appointment for a CareSource PASSE patient using the Interpreter Service Request Form.
CareSource PASSE requires hospitals, at their own expense, to offer sign and language interpreters for members who are hearing impaired, visually impaired or have limited English-speaking ability.
Contact Provider Services at 1-833-230-2100 if you do not have access to interpreter services.
Representatives are available by telephone Monday through Friday, except on the following holidays in 2021:
- New Year’s Day (January 1)
- Memorial Day (May 31)
- the day after Independence Day (July 5)
- Labor Day (September 6)
- Thanksgiving Day (November 25)

Members access Member Services by calling our toll-free number 1-833-230-2005 (TTY for the hearing impaired: 1-800-285-1131 or 711), Monday through Friday, 8 am. to 5 p.m. Central Time (CT), and following the menu prompts.
Members can call 1-833-230-2005 24 hours a day, seven days a week to access care coordination services. All CareSource PASSE members are assigned to a specific care coordinator they will be working with while a part of the PASSE. If, however, a member is unable to reach their assigned care coordinator or have not had contact with them yet, they can call Member Services to receive care coordination services. Providers may call Provider Services to identify who a member’s care coordinator is or to speak to a care coordinator supervisor. Providers may also identify a member’s Care Coordinator on the Provider Portal.
