Retaining Discounts with the UW and its Associated Entities
The Alliance has agreements with UW Hospital and UW Medical Foundation that include timeliness of payment language. This language determines whether or not your organization retains a discount on claim payments for your Alliance enrollees.
The UW Hospital billing department has notified us that beginning with claims filed in the first quarter 2017 they will begin stricter enforcement of the provision for facility claims with discounts of $50.00 or greater. Please visit our TPA section here for:
- A list of things to remember when processing claims from UW Hospital and UW Medical Foundation
- Guidance on how to improve your process and meet the timeliness of payment agreements
- A list of current mailing addresses
- A list of UW Hospital Billing Department email addresses. Account responsibilities were recently reassigned. Please compare your records to the list at the following link and make any necessary adjustments.
