Electronic Claims Submission

CHP currently accepts electronic claims submission from three Clearinghouses: EmDeon, Gateway, and Availity. Our Payer ID number is 95112. You will need to follow the submission guidelines in our EDI Companion Guide. Prior to submission of your initial file you must notify CHP of your intention to transition to electronic submission. You can fax the Electronic Claim Submission Enrollment form to Network Services at (850) 523-7351 or call us at (850) 523-7361. The notification will provide us with enough information to verify receipt of your initial file.

We also offer direct data entry of claims through CHPConnect. Through CHPConnect you are able to enter your claims data on an individual basis and eliminate paper submission. You will need to have access in order to use this functionality. Please go to the CHPConnect page to register.

Credentialing of Network Providers

Capital Health Plan is committed to providing our members in Leon and the surrounding counties with high-quality affordable health care. CHP verifies each practitioner's or provider’s credentials to assess their ability to deliver care to our members based on criteria that include licensure, relevant training, conduct, and experience.

Initial credentialing is completed upon acceptance to be a part of the CHP network and re-credentialing is completed every three years thereafter.

Practitioners have specific rights related to the credentialing process:

  • You have the right to be informed of the status of your credentialing application.
  • You have the right to review information obtained through the verification process, although this does not apply to references, recommendations, or other information that is peer-review protected.
  • You have the right to clarify or correct information on your application that is inconsistent with information obtained via primary source verification. CHP’s Network Services staff will contact you in writing if they identify an inconsistency in the information received through primary source verification. To clarify or correct information in your credentialing file, submit the correction in writing to CHP’s Network Services Manager within 10 business days from the date you viewed the information. CHP will review your submission and respond in writing within 30 days of receipt.

If you should have questions regarding the credentialing process or the status of your application, you can contact Network Services at (850) 523-7361 or by emailing Network Services directly. CHP will provide you with status within 10 business days.


Compliance Program

Capital Health Plan's Compliance Program is composed of eight essential elements. The following represents a brief description of each element.

  1. Written policies and procedures. Capital Health Plan’s Code of Conduct is issued to all employees upon hire and upon request to the public. Additional clarifications regarding compliance guidance are issued in various publications of CHP.
  2. Designation of Compliance Officer and Compliance Committee. CHP has had a Compliance Officer, who also is the Chair of the Compliance Committee, for over 18 years. The Compliance Committee meets regularly throughout the year and additional information regarding these meetings or the Compliance Officer responsibilities are available upon request.

  3. Effective training and education. Compliance training is a combination of classroom, one-on-one, and computer-based training. All new employees are trained the first week of employment and then annually. Successful training requires a minimum score set by the Compliance Committee that all employees must attain. Additionally, Compliance training is also required for temporary staff, students, consultants, and vendors.

  4. Effective lines of communication. The Compliance Officer utilizes email, mail, face-to-face, and a hotline for open communication about compliance concerns. To report anonymously, call the hotline at 850-383-3566.

  5. Enforcement of Compliance standards. Compliance standards enforcement is the responsibility of all CHP management, and our Code of Conduct adherence is expected of all employees. Failure to comply would result in disciplinary action up to and including termination.

  6. Conducting Internal Monitoring & Auditing. CHP’s Compliance Department interacts with all departments and oversees all facets of the organization to ensure adherence to the moral, ethical, legal, and regulatory standards that govern our industry. Various reporting tools and collaborative efforts are employed in the oversight process. Research, analysis, auditing, and monitoring of internal/external stakeholders occurs to ensure organizational compliance with all relevant laws and regulatory requirements on both state and federal levels. Reports and findings are shared with the Compliance Committee, Audit Committee of the Board, and any other relevant workgroups or parties.

  7. Procedures for prompt responses to offenses. The Compliance Program requires timely investigation of any reported violations and appropriate disciplinary action as noted in our policies.

  8. Fraud, Waste & Abuse. The Compliance Program detects, corrects, and works to prevent any issues related to fraud, waste, and/or abuse. The Fraud, Waste & Abuse (FWA) policy is part of new employee training and annual training for all employees. In addition, FWA training is also provided by SIU quarterly.

This summary is not intended to be all-inclusive of the entire scope of Capital Health Plan’s Compliance Program, but is designed to present a high-level overview of the compliance elements currently in place.

Please call the Capital Health Plan Compliance Department at 850-523-7299 should you have any questions regarding this material.
