Submitting a replacement claim

If your claim is partially or fully denied and you want to make a correction, you can submit a replacement claim (no supporting documentation1 needed) to:

  • Correct the date of service, diagnosis, procedure, or modifiers
  • Correct patient data (some exceptions apply)
  • Make changes to your original claim, plus add new charges for services not previously submitted

1. Supporting documentation, such as a Provider Detail Advisory (PDA ), is not required.
