Overall Submission requirements

When possible, we urge providers to submit claims directly to the MIF for reimbursement on behalf of members. We welcome questions from providers relating to MIF claim submission and have developed a separate set of MIF Claim Submission Guidelines for Providers available on the MIF website. When claims are submitted by members, the MIF support team will help you to submit complete and accurate claims and supporting documentation. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions regarding the claim submission process.

Please note that all completed claims are required to be received by the MIF within 90 days from the date services are rendered or purchased.
