Streamline workflow with medical attachments tool
Has your office received a request for additional information to process a claim for an Anthem member? Those records can be submitted electronically using the Medical Attachments feature in your Availity claims processing portal.
The Medical Attachments feature makes submitting electronic documentation in support of a claim simple and streamlined. You can use your tax identification number (TIN) or your NPI to register and submit solicited (requested by Anthem) medical record attachments through the Availity Portal.
How to access/setup the solicited medical attachments tool for your office
Availity Administrators must complete these steps:
- From My Account Dashboard, select Enrollments Center > Medical Attachments Setup, follow the prompts and complete the following sections:
- Select Application > choose Medical Attachments Registration
- Provider Management > Select Organization from the drop-down. Add NPIs and/or tax IDs. Multiples can be added separated by spaces or semi-colons.
- Assign user access by checking the box in front of the user’s name. Users may be removed by unchecking their name.
