Do I ever need to file a medical claim form?

Preferred hospital and facility plans do not require you to file a claim form when you visit a preferred hospital or facility. They will submit the claim electronically directly to EBMS. If you elect to receive care from a non-network hospital or facility, you may be required to pay in advance and then file a claim for reimbursement from the plan. However, should you ever require care for life-threatening situations, your preferred hospital and facility plan understands that you may receive care before contacting CARE LINK. The emergency room where you receive care may be outside of the preferred hospital and facility network. Most hospitals will file your claim for you; others may send the bill directly to you for you to coordinate with your plan.
If you do need to submit a claim form, which is available on the website below, you can mail it directly to: Employee Benefit Management Services, P. O. Box 21367, Billings, MT 59104 Otherwise, you can forward the forms to the City of Billings, Human Resources dept for EBMS. They pick up mail daily.
