Adding Insurance Providers in simple Practice
Answered

I have a practice in Minnesota and I wonder if there are folks in the community who understand the insurance landscape here. I have group contracts with MHCP (medicaid), Medicare, Ucare, BCBS MN, Optum (for Behavioral health, this also includes Medica, UBH, United Healthcare ), Hennepin Health, Prime West.

I was able to add following payers in Simple Practice (payer id in parenthesis).

Medicaid of Minnesota - payer id- (MNMCD)

Medicare Part B of Minnesota (MNMCR)

Ucare of Minnesota (19991)

BCBS MN (MNBLS)

Prime West Health Plan (61604)

My question is as follows-

1. I wanted to make sure above payer ids are correct. For eg when I called Ucare today they gave me payer id 52629, but simple practice shows payer id 19991 for Ucare.

2. Could not find Hennepin Health. Does this mean I go via their portal or can this be manually added?

3. optum has so many options  and I am not sure what to select.

 

Thanks

Dayse

    I am in New Jersey and have just signed up for simple practice.  I sent my client a link to the portal and her insurance wasn't on the list, how do you add an insurance?  Thank you!
