CenCal Health was notified that Change Healthcare, a clearinghouse that sends EDI claims and Electronic Remittance Advices (ERAs),has experienced a cyber security issue. Access to Change Healthcare’s system is restricted until the issue is resolved. We do not currently have a timeframe for resolution.

If you submitted any claims through Change Healthcare after February 20th, they have not been received by CenCal Health. This means that the amount of your payment from CenCal Health may be impacted until we receive your claims. We would like to assist you in alternative ways to submit your claims to CenCal Health, including:

  1.     Submitting claims via paper to us at:

CenCal Health
P.O. Box 948
Goleta, CA 93116-0948

  1.      Submitting claims to an alternative clearinghouse of your choice.
  2.      Submitting claims through AdminisTEP, who works directly with CenCal Health:
  1.      Submitting Claims directly to CenCal Health via our secure Provider Portal
  2.      Retrieving ERAs on our secure Provider Portal

CenCal Health understands that this issue may cause a disruption to your business operations. We apologize for the inconvenience and are committed to working with you on an alternative process during the Change Healthcare outage.
