Preferred Providers FAQ

At WeShare® by UHSM we work hard to make sure our members and providers have simple and fast medical bill processing. Out members will have preset, per-visit consult fees that operate similar to your insurance patient’s co-pay. We promptly process your remaining network-contracted fees. Here are some frequently asked questions and answers regarding care within PHCS® PPO Network. 

WeShare® by UHSM currently uses Claimsnet for the clearinghouse and is in the system as “UHSM – Unite Health Share Ministries™” with NAIC# 07689, claim type HCFA.  While all the trading partners have been notified, many won’t set up the payer ID until a provider requests it. To request UHSM setup, as the provider all you have to do is: 

  1. Open a customer service ticket at your clearinghouse — Request the setup of payer ID , with routing to SSI Claimsnet.
  2. Send that service ticket number along with the clearinghouse name to Claimsnet helpdesk to complete the integration [email protected].    

You will need to be contracted with our preferred network PHCS PPO. Please click here (expired MultiPlan Web Page) to join PHCS. WeShare® by UHSM is committed to processing all medical bills promptly and efficiently, and to making your job as a provider as seamless as possible.

Just like any other payer within the PHCS PPO Network, your medical service fees will be paid according to your contracted rate.   

All WeShare® by UHSM programs include benefits in which members pay you (the provider) a consult fee per office visit, unless the appointment is a routine annual physical or preventive care, in which case the per visit fee to members is $0.   

If you are wondering how much to charge a WeShare® by UHSM member for a particular visit please reference the front of the PHCS Weshare member ID card or the specific Program Details. The per visit consult fee each WeShare® member pays varies per program, but operates similarly to co-pay by aligning with the type of medical consult: primary doctor, specialist, urgent care and emergency room visits. If you have additional questions please contact us.  

For questions about the eligibility of medical services that may be recommended following an appointment, please submit a UHSM preauthorization form here or contact us at (757) 210-3435. 

Preauths take 3 – 5 business days maximum.
