    COTIVITI Update

    Updated on January 18th, 2022

    Members should contact Cotiviti no later than Monday, 1/24/22.   As a reminder, members may contact Cotiviti directly at (888) 625-7526.  Cotiviti has a helpline available 12 hours a day (8 am to 8 pm Eastern Time), five days a week (Monday through Friday) to assist with questions.  

    Families that did not respond by 1/24/22 will have their unverified dependents terminated as of 1/24/22.  For those dependents in which incomplete documents were provided, their eligibility will end on 1/31/22.  

    After 1/31/22, the Trust Fund Office will accept the requested dependent documents by fax at (602) 324-0555 or through our secure portal at  Submissions of the requested documents should be clearly labelled with the Enrollee’s UPS ID or SSN.  

    Once the documents are received and processed, coverage will be reinstated (retroactive to the termination date [1/25/22] for those date ranges in which they had compensable time).   Reinstatement of dependent coverage may take 5- 10 Business days to process and it is recommended that members contact Cotiviti to prevent any disruption of their dependent’s eligibility in the health plan.

    Please let us know if you have any questions.

    Thank you,
