  • Efficient Claims Submission and Payment

Providers may submit claims, prior authorization requests, eligibility inquiries, claims status inquiries, and associated attachments using electronic data interchange (EDI) by being a trading partner (TP) authorized by ODM or by contracting with an ODM-authorized TP. For more information on TPs, please visit the ODM TP webpage. All AmeriHealth Caritas Ohio provider claims may be submitted to the plan via the central PNM portal for electronic claims submission. Claims for billable services provided to AmeriHealth Caritas Ohio members must be submitted by the provider who performed the services.

Links to the ODM PNM system and step-by-step guidance on new centralized claims submission procedures will be available closer to the launch date in the fourth quarter of 2022.
