As mandated by HB1086, the Transparency, Accountability, and Innovation in Oklahoma State Government 2.0 Act of 2011 requires all payments disbursed by the Office of the State Treasurer be made solely through electronic funds transfer (EFT).
EGID was granted a waiver on this mandate through June 30, 2013; however, claims processed on or after July 1, 2013, for providers who have not authorized EFT for their contracted TIN, will be denied, regardless of the date of service.
The EFT authorization form for HealthChoice is available at: www.ok.gov/sib/documents/EFTForm.pdf.
All claims are paid directly to Network Providers as required under the terms of the Network Provider Contract.
An example of the Provider Remittance Statement is available at: www.ok.gov/sib/documents/HCRemittance.pdf.
HealthChoice Network Providers who currently accept Medicare assignment will receive direct claims payments.
Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) is utilized for all provider payments. Remittance Advices (RA) are processed for Network Providers on a nightly basis. Paper RA will still be mailed when utilizing EFT. Network Providers can contact the claims administrator to stop receiving paper RA and download them exclusively from ClaimLink.
