Prime Cure has relationship managers situated nationally. These qualified staff members regularly interact with providers through personal visits and telephone calls. Providers are requested to inform the relationship managers of any changes that include practice details, contact particulars and professional status. An alternative would be for the providers to contact their allocated Relationship Manager or to communicate any changes by email to the allocated email address Provider.Loading@primecure.co.za or firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Prime Cure call centre on 0861 665 665.

The reason for this is that claims submitted via EDI are processed and paid in less than seven days following receipt thereof. This allows for the provider to immediately detect incorrect details on the claim and to rectify and re-submit these immediately.
