Provider Claim Summary Paper Discontinuance Effective Date DELAY
As a reminder, Provider Claim Summaries (PCSs) are accessible through the Report offering in our Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Montana (BCBSMT) Secure Provider Portal.
A previous announcement indicated that distribution of paper PCSs via regular mail would be discontinued March 1, 2017. However, to ensure provider readiness, the effective date to discontinue mailing of paper PCSs has been delayed from March 1, 2017, to a future date within 2017. More information will be made available regarding the paper mailing end date in the upcoming months.
Exception requests to receive paper PCS mailings will continue to be reviewed by emailing PECS@bcbsil.com.
As a point of clarification, enrollment for Electronic Remittance Advice (ERA) and Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) remains optional, and is not required to obtain your PCS from the Provider Portal. Within the Provider Portal, the identical PCS received by mail from BCBSMT is readily available for you to view, save, download and/or print, at your convenience. You must be registered with the BCBSMT Secure Provider Portal to gain access to the PCS Report viewer.
