Commonwealth Care Alliance (CCA) is partnering with Cognizant to implement our new Massachusetts and Rhode Island claims platform, Facets, effective April 1, 2023. The new claims platform for Massachusetts and Rhode Island includes access to the Availity® Essentials Provider Portal and the EDI Gateway solution. The purpose of this change is to improve service levels and provider experience and to enhance paper and electronic claims submission using a single platform for managing all CCA Massachusetts and Rhode Island product lines.

Please note that processing on our new platform will take effect April 1, 2023, and any claims with dates of service April 1 and forward must be submitted with our new payer ID A2793.

CCA is committed to making this implementation seamless, partnering with Cognizant to provide contact center support and updated provider manuals and policies. As an added benefit, the Availity Essentials Provider Portal offers direct access and electronic data exchange, making it easy for providers to register their practice, view claim status, and validate member eligibility.
