We want to make it as easy as possible to conduct business with us. In addition to information about how to submit claims and check payments, CareSource® offers you tools to find specific information, such as claim status and member coordination of benefits (COB) status.

CareSource accepts claims in a variety of formats, including online and paper claims.

Recommended Option: Submit Claims Online

Providers have the option to submit claims through our secure, online Provider Portal. You can submit claims, track claim payments and more. CareSource offers this service at no cost.

We encourage you to submit claims online to take advantage of the following benefits:

  • Faster claim processing
  • Reduced administrative costs
  • Reduced probability of errors or missing information
  • Faster feedback on claims status
  • Minimal staff training or cost

Refer to the Provider Manual for detailed information to submit claims.

CareSource also partners with Availity to offer electronic claim submission and real-time transactions at no charge through the Availity Portal. You can use the Availity Portal Registration Guide to get signed up.

Coordination of Payment

CareSource makes coordinating of payments simple. The process is as follows:

  1. The provider must submit claims to CareSource to pay for Medicare covered services.
  2. Upon approval, CareSource will send back an Explanation of Payment (EOP) to the provider.
  3. The provider may submit the EOP to the State to submit claims for Medicaid covered services and/or cost share.

Alternative Option: Submit Paper Claims

For the most efficient processing of your claims, CareSource recommends you submit all claims electronically. Paper claim forms are encouraged only for services that require clinical documentation or other forms to process. If providers choose this option, we advise you upload images of the paper claims via the Provider Portal.

Refer to the Provider Manual for instructions to submit paper claims.

Non-Participating Providers

Non-participating providers may submit claims to CareSource using the Non-Participating Provider Profile Form. CareSource is unable to process claims without this information. Please be sure to attach your W-9 form when you submit this online form.
