The Claims Department processes medical bills submitted by participating physicians, as well as other medical providers. All claims are entered (or when available imported electronically) into our core system, then adjudicated according to contractual agreements and prior authorization requirements.
IPA Claims Contact
Claims Department (408) 937-3620 FAX: (408) 937-3634
Claims may be submitted either by mail or electronically. If you are submitting a claim which requires inclusion of medical notes, surgical notes, explanation of benefits, or forms, please send a paper claim instead of an electronic claim. This will ensure the claim and the appropriate attachments are received by the Claims Department.
**Contracted providers should submit claims 90 days from the date of service. Non-contracted providers should submit claims 180 days from the date of service. Failure to do so will result in claims denying for timely filing.
Paper/Mail Claim Submission
Mail claims (including all appropriate attachments) to:
Physicians Medical Group of San Jose
P.O. Box 1997,San Leandro, CA 94577-1997
Attn: Specify Commercial or Medi-Cal/Healthy Families/Healthy Kids
Electronic Claim Submission
Electronic claim submission saves postage, paper, human resources, and decreases the overall processing time. For smooth uploading of electronic claims, be sure the patient’s name, Date of Birth, and Insurance ID are entered exactly the same as they are shown on the member’s Health Plan identification card.
