Make Provider Changes

All general provider changes including changes in office demographics, must be submitted in writing to MedStar Family Choice-DC no less than thirty days prior to the desired effective date on the notice.

Changes to Tax ID numbers require 45 days written notice from the provider. MedStar Family Choice-DC will confirm receipt of the Tax ID notice in writing within 30 days after acceptance of the Tax ID change. 

The MedStar Family Choice Provider Web Portal serves as a quality control mechanism allowing providers to view their information in our system. Your provider information is communicated to the MedStar Family Choice-DC enrollees and provider community via our Find a Provider website. Other systems within MedStar Family Choice-DC also use this information to process authorizations, claims and issue reimbursement checks.
