Upcoming retirement planned for legacy medical attachment submission tool
As we have been communicating in Provider News, we are now in the final stages of migration from the legacy medical attachments submission tool to the ‘Attachments-New’ option via Availity.
What is happening to the current attachment tool?
- The legacy medical attachments tool will be retired soon* with access via the Attachments-New option available now.
- The history of the information you have previously submitted is still available on the legacy tool at this time.*
- Read only access to the history is in the final stages.*
*Look for messaging on the legacy attachment tool for specific dates.
