Our staff has been trained in all of our product lines, so you never have to worry about choosing a prompt in order to get the correct department. When you contact us, we know you are busy. Our goal is to ensure that you only need to call us once!

Please feel free to contact us for your change of address, change of phone number, other coverage change or to change your primary care physician. No paperwork is necessary (unless your employer requires you to follow other procedures). We can also help with claims inquiries, benefit or pharmacy questions. Our toll-free number is 800.895.2421.

Your complaint rights

MercyCare is committed to ensuring that all members’ concerns are handled in an appropriate and timely manner. We ensure that every member has the opportunity to express dissatisfaction with any aspect of our products.

Every MercyCare member has the right to contact our customer service department to address a concern. If you call MercyCare, our customer service representatives will research your concern and advise you of the outcome. Our toll-free number is 800.895.2421.

If you submit a concern in writing to MercyCare, we will offer you the opportunity to talk to a grievance committee member either in person, on the phone or via other technology. There will be at least one person on the committee that has MercyCare insurance, but is not an employee of MercyCare. At any time, you may submit in writing your grievance to MercyCare Insurance Company.

Your concerns are important to us. In order for us to improve the service we provide for you, it is essential that you voice your concerns so that we may identify areas requiring improvement.

Mercyhealth and MercyCare

If you receive a bill from Mercyhealth and do not understand what the amount represents, you may call either the number on the bill or MercyCare. You should ask for an explanation of the balance. The charges may be, but are not limited to, your co-pay, deductible, coinsurance or non-covered charges.

If you feel that MercyCare has denied a charge in error, please ask to have the charge reviewed. If you have called Mercyhealth Physician Billing, they will contact us for a review.
