Submitting Claims

As a participating provider with Molina Healthcare, you have established a contractual agreement to provide physical, behavioral and/or other long-term support services to our members. The arrangement is fee-for-service for the provision of covered healthcare services unless otherwise specified under your Participating Agreement. The rates established in your Participating Agreement are considered full payment for covered services provided. Accordingly, Molina Healthcare members may not be balance billed for any remaining amounts and/or difference between what is billed, and your negotiated reimbursement rates defined in the rate exhibit of your Participating Provider Agreement.

Molina Healthcare pays clean claims submitted for covered services provided to eligible members. In most cases, we pay clean claims within 30 days.
