CCHP Provider Dispute Process
CCHP has a Provider Dispute Resolution (PDR) process that ensures provider disputes are handled in a fast, fair and cost effective manner. A provider dispute is a written notice from a provider that:
  • Challenges, appeals or requests reconsideration of a claim (including a bundled group of similar claims) that has been denied, adjusted or contested
  • Challenges a request for reimbursement for an overpayment of a claim.
  • Seeks resolution of a billing determination or other contractual dispute.
How to Submit Provider Disputes Providers must use a Provider Dispute Resolution and Appeal Request Form (PDF). You may download Instructions for Submitting Provider Disputes (PDF) or call CCHP Provider Relations at 1-415-955-8800, ext. 3214 for assistance.
Disputes can be mailed to: Chinese Community Health Plan Attention: Provider Dispute Resolution Area 445 Grant Avenue, Suite 700 San Francisco, CA 94108
Disputes can also be faxed to: 1-415-955-8815
Resolution Timeframe CCHP will resolve each provider dispute within 45 business days following receipt of the dispute, and will provide the provider with a written determination stating the reasons for the determination.
Non-Contracted Provider Dispute Resolution Process For CMS Medicare Advantage Plan Members A non-contract provider, on his or her own behalf, is permitted to file a standard appeal for a denied claim only if the non-contract provider completes a waiver of liability statement, which provides that the non-contract provider will not bill the Medicare member regardless of the outcome of the appeal. The health plan cannot undertake a review until or unless such form/documentation is obtained. Download details of the CMS Non-Contracted Provider Dispute Process (PDF).
