Providers Who Submit Their Own Claims

Still submitting paper claims?

You can submit directly through this website:

To assist you in your transition to electronic billing, we've developed the Internet Claim Submission Tool. This online tool is designed for providers who currently submit only paper claims.

You are eligible to use the Internet Claim Submission Tool if you have a valid Michigan provider code and currently do not submit any claims electronically.

Signing up is easy. Here's what you need to do.
