CSHCS Home > Provider Relations Provider Relations

The thousands of participants served by the various programs administered by the Indiana State Department of Health are fortunate to have the participation of excellent health care providers across the wide spectrum of medical specialties. Their significant contribution to the well being of this sector of Indiana's population is appreciated.


Effective 1/1/2012 providers need to obtain EOP information from the Children's Special Health Care Services (CSHCS) Web Portal. We will not be able to provide EOP information over the telephone.  The CSHCS Program has previously sent 2 notifications to providers that the program will no longer send a paper EOP (for paid or denied claims) to providers after 12/31/2011. 

If you have not already done so, please enroll in the Web Portal now by clicking on the Web Portal link to the left of this page and completing the short enrollment form. Please be sure any third party billers that you would like to have access to the Web Portal information are also listed on your enrollment form. The Web Portal will allow providers to view and/or print EOPs and check claim & enrollment status. Another option would be to contact our EDI team at 1-800-475-1355, option 5, then option 1 to inquire about receiving the 835 Electronic Remittance Advice.

Flu Information

Getting the flu vaccine is the best way to prevent flu. For children younger than 5 years of age and those with chronic health conditions, like asthma and neuro-developmental disorders, getting the flu vaccine is especially important to avoid serious flu complications like pneumonia, which can lead to hospitalization and even death. Please join us in encouraging everyone to get vaccinated. Remember the flu ends with you!

The CDC website describing the focus is National Influenza Vaccination Week. In addition, there is more information at and at the CDC's Seasonal Influenza page.

Below are links to brochures that have specifically been developed for parents of typical children and also children with chronic medical conditions, including children with special health care needs. Please distribute and forward these as you feel are appropriate.
