The article included an overview of changes related to claims submitted for Blue Cross Medicare AdvantageSM members. Please note that the new fax number for paper claims referenced in the article was incorrect and should not be used. The new mailing address for paper claims included in the article is correct.

Electronic Claim Submission Reminders

BCBSOK encourages electronic claim submission to help expedite processing. It is important to use the correct Payer ID on your electronic claims to help ensure proper routing of these claims.

  • The Payer ID for electronic Blue Cross Medicare Advantage claims is 66006. If you use a vendor other than Availity or Passport/Experian for electronic claim submission, contact your vendor to confirm they are using Payer ID 66006, rather than assigning their own unique number.

PLEASE NOTE: If you have previously submitted a claim using the fax number on or after 1-1-17 please resubmit the claim either by mail or electronic submission. Fax submissions are not an acceptable method for claim submission.

If you have questions or need assistance, contract your Medicare Advantage Network Representative, Sherrie Pippin 918-551-2175.
