The First Choice Health Provider Manual provides the basic information you and your office staff need when seeing FCH PPO patients as well as direction and clarification regarding your obligations as a FCH PPO provider.
Terming an existing practice address: Send an email to [email protected] indicating you wish termination of a specific practice address. Include your NPI and Tax Identification numbers so we can find you in our system.
Changing/adding a billing address: A billing address equals pay to address or where the checks need to be sent. It should match what is being sent in box 33 on the CMS 1500 or EDI form locator 2010AA (street address) or 2010AB (PO Box). To update this address type, send an email to [email protected] indicating you wish to change your billing address. Include your NPI and Tax Identification numbers so we can find you in our system.
Tax Identifier Number changes:
- If you are joining an existing TIN that is contracted with FCH, your new Tax ID (TIN) information must be reflected on your online application. Update the application and attest and we will update your demographic information.
- if you are adding a brand new TIN to FCH, add it to your application and attest. Then, email a W9 to [email protected] along with messaging indicating that you have added a new TIN.
- If you are terming an existing TIN, please email [email protected] with the effective date of the termination.
All other changes not listed above (new practice address, name change, specialty change, etc): Ensure your demographics are correct and accurate on either the ProviderSource application (WA state) or CAQH application (outside WA state). Once all your information has been updated and attested to, we will automatically get the updates and make the change in our system within 2 business days.

Reports are run every Monday and summarize all claims priced by FCH for your billing office (determined by Tax Identification Number).
Reports include the following information:
- How the claim was received for pricing (batch type)
- When the claim was received and completed
- The FCH allowed amount
- Disposition of the claim (forwarded on for processing or returned for errors)
- Error codes associated with the claim
- Note that the error description line will indicate the charge line that is associated with that specific error.
Providers who have opted to receive this report will not receive any FCH paper pricing worksheets. The report is to be reviewed weekly and if any errors are identified, all associated claims should be corrected and resent to FCH for pricing.
