Locating SPOT information on the First Coast provider site
Due to Medicare data security restrictions, First Coast representatives will not have access to claims or provider records in SPOT and will not be able to answer specific claim or Medicare beneficiary questions.
Any issues requiring specific account details will be referred to the SPOT help desk.
Please do not enter personal or protected health information (PHI) in the Live Chat dialogue box. PHI includes beneficiaries’ name, their Medicare ID, or Social Security number, or secondary insurance information. If you have any questions related to PHI, please review the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services HIPAA Basics for Providers external pdf file guide.
First Coast Service Options (First Coast) strives to ensure that the information available on our provider website is accurate, detailed, and current. Therefore, this is a dynamic site and its content changes daily. It is best to access the site to ensure you have the most current information rather than printing articles or forms that may become obsolete without notice.
