When a serious illness hits or a devastating injury, the last thing you want to figure out is how to submit an insurance claim.
Any kind of stress, including financial stress, inhibits healing.
You want to focus on healing and not paying. Yet you know that if you neglect to submit your claim, you could end up with overwhelming bills, impairing your ability to heal and return to normal.
Before you submit a claim with Green Shield, you need to complete your Green Shield registration. This starts with getting a registration key.
Once you have a registration key, you can log into the online service page. Follow these steps.
At this point, you will need to determine how you will receive your payment. If you want to receive it via direct deposit, then you will need to enter more information. Here's what you need to do.
Once you've entered your information, you can click the link that takes you back to your home page where you can view your statements, submit your claims, and find information about providers.
Once you've registered with Green Shield, you do not have to do all the heavy lifting of submitting a claim. A quick search of how to make a Green Shield claim will lead you to the information that your healthcare provider can submit the claim for you.
When a provider submits a claim, they are able to see a great deal of information that helps them. Here's what a provider can do online:
A provider will most likely want to submit the claim for you since they receive more assurance of payment.
You have the option of submitting your own claims online as well. Go to the member service page or the Green Shield On The Go app. If you haven't registered for Plan Member Online Services, do this (as explained above).
Then follow these steps.
Online claim submission takes a few minutes of your time but assures you that insurance will kick in and do its job. If you use the GSC website, you'll see you can see receipts, claim forms, and other supporting documents.
If you're uncomfortable using the online services, you can always use the paper claims form as well. Here's how:
Then fill out the form and mail it in. Make sure you write your GSC ID number on the form and sign it. You can find your GSC ID number on the front of your health insurance card.
Before you seal the envelope, tuck all supporting documents and receipts in with the claims form. The mailing address will be at the bottom of your claim form.
If both you and your spouse have benefits, here's what you must do to coordinate your claims.
You must indicate how you want the two plans to coordinate and if you want them to coordinate at all. You have the option to receive coverage under both plans or waiving benefits. You can waive benefits for the plan member and all eligible dependents or you can waive benefits for just the plan member's eligible dependents.
If you plan on waiving, then you must complete the Partial Waiver section of the Employee Enrollment Form when you initially enroll.
If you discover, after your plan has started, that you want to waive, then you will have to complete the Partial Waiver section of the Employee Change Request Form. Your Plan Administrator will have this form.
Submitting Green Shield claims will take only a few moments of time but can yield big results.
