Provider Electronic Payment Options

Florida Health Care Plans has partnered with VPay to offer an electronic claim payment option for providers using the VPay process. VPay allows your office to receive payments electronically via the MasterCard network. This service will provide a faster and more efficient way for you to receive payment.

Providers accepting VPay will enjoy the following benefits:

  • Quick payments. VPay is delivered primarily via fax so you are receiving payments much quicker than checks.
  • Easy reconciliation. The VPayment and EOB are delivered together in a single document. Enter the card number in your terminal and post the EOB to your billing system and you are done!
  • No bank deposits. Your funds will be delivered electronically to your merchant account.
  • VPay eliminates the risk of fraud and guarantees the delivery of funds to your account, regardless of any fraudulent attempt to process a VCard. No more stolen, lost or whitewashed checks.
  • VPay’s Call Center is staffed with knowledgeable, well trained professionals that can assist with any questions you have about your VPayment.

You do not have to enroll to use VPay. When you receive your VCard, just follow the directions provided on your remittance.

The VPay process also includes an ACH/835 option. You can call the VPay Call Center at (877) 714-3222 to enroll for this service.

We are excited to bring you this safe and efficient electronic method of claims payment. Please keep in mind that you can also check eligibility by registering with Availity at (800) AVAILITY (484-4548). You do not have to file your claims electronically in order to use this valuable service. This service is readily available to you. No more telephone calls!

If you have any questions about this service, please feel free to contact Steve Berberich, Administrator of Claims at Florida Health Care Plans. His email address is sberberich@fhcp.com.
