What is Change Healthcare?
Apex is now partnered with Change Healthcare to help process Enrollments. This is great news for you! This partnership allows us to provide you faster and more efficient Enrollment Experience.
Not only does Change Healthcare help to fill out the Enrollment Forms, and manage the Enrollment process, they have also formed partnerships with Insurance Companies that allow us to process your Enrollments more quickly!
Once you have submitted the Enrollment Survey to Apex you will receive a call from your Change Healthcare specialist and they will walk you through all.
- You will get a call from Change Healthcare within 2 business days of enrollment to gather any additional information needed for you EDI/ERA Enrollment - e.g. Tax ID, Billing NPI, Payers, etc.
- Your Change Healthcare Rep will then submit your enrollment forms to your Payers.
- IF a Payer requires the Provider or Agency to directly submit enrollment via a portal, your Change Healthcare Rep will walk you through the process.
- Your Change Healthcare Rep will serve as a consistent contact point through the process and will provide weekly Enrollment Status updates.
- Contact your Change Healthcare Rep for any questions regarding your EDI/ERA enrollments.
- Change Healthcare will work with the you and the Payer to resolve enrollment rejections.
Your Enrollments will be delayed if you do not respond when your Change Healthcare Rep contacts you for additional Enrollment information. Change Healthcare will continue to reach out to you on a weekly basis for 30 days before giving you a deadline to complete the Forms. They will attempt to contact you on different days/times and may even reach out to Apex for an additional contact if necessary.
If you fail to provide the information needed by the deadline, the Enrollment project will be closed. The project will remain closed until YOU contact Change Healthcare to reopen it.

You can work with your Rep to customize how they would like the Enrollment grouped, either as one with multiple tabs or separate emails.
I received an approval or rejection directly from the Payer, now what?

When you Enroll Payers with Change Healthcare you should receive a welcome packet with an email address for your Change Healthcare Rep. Feel free to reach out to your Rep concerning any in-progress Enrollments questions or concerns.
If you reach out to WebABA or to Apex, we will direct you back to you Change Healthcare Rep.
