How do I submit a Master Medical claim?
Who is this for?
If you have a plan through your employer that includes Master Medical, use this information to submit a claim for reimbursement.
If you have Master Medical added to your plan, that means you have additional coverage for some services that your plan doesn't cover. You just pay for these services in advance and then submit a claim for reimbursement.
If you get your coverage through a nonprofit organization that doesn't cover you for some essential health benefits, you can submit a claim for reimbursement. Below you'll find instructions on how to submit a claim to be reimbursed for these services as well.
Master Medical claims process
We pay in-network doctors directly, so you don’t have to worry about submitting claims and waiting to get reimbursed. You only need to submit claims for prescription drugs and care you receive from out-of-network health care professionals. If you see a doctor who doesn't belong to your plan’s network, check to see if they will submit the claim for you. If not, you’ll need to submit the claim yourself.
