CCHP Provider Appeals Process

We no longer accept paper appeals and will return paper appeals to providers instructing providers to submit appeals via the portal. Portal access and information can be found on our website at To submit appeals via the portal:

  1. Select "Providers," then provider portal in the dropdown.
  2. Choose Badgercare Plus Claims Look-Up Tool and select “sign up.” The Registration guide and user guide can also be found on the portal page.

**Please note: Administrators will be responsible for setting up their organizations prior to individual providers registering. Once Chorus Community Health Plans approves the administrator they can then have their individual providers register. The administrators will be responsible for approving their individual providers. Individual providers will not have access until their administrator approves.

National Correct Coding Initiative

CCHP follows the National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI) which was created by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid. This initiative was created to stop improper coding which leads to incorrect payments.

Forward Health has implemented the NCCI to monitor all professional claims and outpatient hospital claims submitted with Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) or Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) for compliance with:

  • MUE (Medically Unlikely Edits), or units-of-service detail edits.
  • Procedure-to-Procedure detail edits.

MUE is the maximum units of service that a provider would claim for a single member on a single date of service for each code. Procedure-to-Procedure detail edits define pairs of codes that should not be claimed together on the same date of service.

If the claim is denied for either of these reasons, providers will receive an explanation of benefits on the remittance advice that it was denied because of NCCI.
