Providers who have access to Provider Secured Services can simply log in to check the status of a claim.

If you don't have an account yet, you can check claims for BCBSM patients with our automated system. It can also send you a copy of your claim's status. Just keep in mind you'll need to go through the prompts before you're connected to someone.

Note: It can take up to 30 days for a claim to be processed. If you call before 30 days, we may not be able to check your claim through our automated phone system.
