Availity Improvements & Webinar Update

REMINDER! Availity has many features to improve efficiency!

  • You can upload documents that you need to submit to BCBSWY through Availity. Documents for appeals, corrected claims, medical records (for reasons other than Prior Authorizations) or invoices can be uploaded through Availity. This is a great alternative to faxing or mailing documents and is more efficient since it provides a record of the date the documents were received and downloaded and makes it easier to track documentation of submission dates.
