Download the LiUNAcare Local 183 eClaims app from the App Store or Google Play and follow the registration instructions. Make sure you have your Member Advantage benefit card handy as you’ll be asked to provide your group number (the first six digits on your card) and certificate number (the remaining 10 digits).

Prefer to register using your computer?

That’s easy enough. Just click on the eClaims link in the top right corner of your screen, click Register account, and follow the steps.

Once you’ve registered, you’ll be able to view your monthly eligibility for benefits by clicking on the Profile icon and selecting My account. This is where you’ll also find a digital copy of your Members Advantage benefit card for future reference.

Want to submit a medical or dental claim online?

Let’s do this! Simply log into your eClaims account and click Submit a claim. You’ll be asked to provide the details of your claim and upload a photograph of your receipt. Make sure your receipt includes the patient’s name, as well as the service provider’s name, address and registration number.

If you’re submitting a claim for a service requested by a doctor’s referral, you’ll need to provide a copy of that referral. There are two ways you can do this: either upload a photo of the referral letter along with a photo of your receipt, or send a copy of it to Member Services by email or fax. If you choose to send it to Member Services, be sure to include your LiUNAcare Local 183 certificate number (the last 10 digits on your Member Advantage benefit card).

Need to submit several receipts?

No problem. You can submit multiple receipts in a single claim provided that all of the receipts come from the same provider. If you have several receipts to submit for services provided by different providers, you’ll need to submit separate claims for each provider.

Want to know the status of a payment?

Provided you’ve submitted your claim correctly, you can look forward to receiving payment within three to five business days. Payment will arrive by mail in the form of a cheque, unless you’ve set your eClaims account up for Electronic Funds Transfer.

Of course, you can check on the status any time. Simply click on the History tab in the main menu and you’ll see a list of all previously submitted claims and their respective statuses. If you want to view an explanation of benefits for a specific claim, select that claim from the list and then click EOB.

With the LiUNAcare Local 183 eClaims app, submitting an online claim is a snap!
