- Electronic claims submitted through PCA’s Provider Portal
- Electronic claims submitted through clearinghouses utilizing the HIPAA compliant ANS X12 837D file format.
- Paper claims
Providers are encouraged to submit claims to PCA electronically. If you need assistance in registering with PCA’s Provider Portal in order to submit claims directly to PCA, please contact us at (702) 478-2014.
If you submit claims through a clearinghouse, PCA currently accepts electronic claims directly from the following clearinghouses: EDI Health Group, Inc. – DentalXchange, Vyne Dental and Change Healthcare. If you do not submit your claims through one of these clearinghouses, then your claim may be converted to a paper claim by your clearinghouse and mailed to PCA, which will take longer for PCA to receive your claim.
