Claims & Billing Information

Business System Change from MIDAS to WWC  System Effective January 1, 2017

As part of our merger with Community Care Connections of Wisconsin (CCCW), ContinuUs, and Western Wisconsin Cares (WWC) into one organization (Community Link, Inc.), ContinuUs changed from MIDAS to the WWC business system effective January 1, 2017. This change impacted multiple areas, such as authorizations, claims submission, referral requests, and customer support, and includes a different provider portal for accessing your information. Please see the Business System 2017 page for communications and resources related to this change.

Community Link, Inc. (CLI) providers must submit claims no later than 90 days from the time services are provided, unless a different timeline (provider‐specific) has been approved.

CLI is the payor of last resort. Providers must bill other primary third party payors first. In the event the primary payor denies the claim or makes only a partial payment on the claim, you must make sure that you submit invoices to CLI within 90 days of receiving the denial or partial payment. CLI will then determine the appropriate additional payment, if any.

WPS is the claims processor for CLI, and all claims must be submitted either electronically or by paper to WPS.
