Please note, that Prime Health is unable to address questions regarding the application of bill review or state mandated fee schedule reductions.</p> <p>These questions should be directed to the insurance carrier and/or bill review vendor listed on your explanation of benefits/review. Prime Health is happy to assist in resolving claim disputes stemming from the application of a Prime Health network or Partner Network reduction. Part of the nature of a Preferred Provider network is addressing, an industry average of 3% claim disputes. However Prime Health is proud to have a dispute average of 1.2%</p>
