Provider Dispute and Appeals Submissions
Molina has gone green, and is requesting that all providers submit provider dispute and appeals electronically. Electronic submission provides benefits to providers including faster disputes and appeals processing, increased overall efficiencies, improved processing accuracy and reduced HIPAA violations.
Any disagreement regarding the processing, payment or non-payment of a claim is considered a provider dispute. Provider disputes are typically disputes related to overpayment, underpayments, untimely filing, missing documents (i.e. consent forms, primary carrier explanation of benefits) and bundling issues. Provider Appeals are requests related to a denial of an authorization or medical criteria. A provider has 90 days from date of remittance denial to dispute a claim.
Molina offers the following submission options:
- Submit requests directly to Molina Healthcare of South Carolina via the Provider Portal at: Provider.MolinaHealthcare.com
- Submit requests directly to Molina Healthcare of South Carolina via fax at (877) 901-8182

On 1/1/2021, Molina implemented a Site of Care policy for Medicaid and Marketplace that may result in a change in the place of service for certain medically necessary provider-administered medications (HCPCS J Codes). These medications are required to be rendered in the most appropriate setting, such as home or independent infusion centers (place of service 11 or 12), and not in a hospital setting unless it meets medically indicated exceptions. Click here for the complete list and more information that includes the medications and classes that will be impacted by this change.
