Gaining access to provider self-service

When registering for provider self-service, providers have four different options for gaining access:

  • Site administrator express code: Providers may use an express code from a local site administrator responsible for the provider ID they want to access.
  • Existing referral information: Providers may enter the authorization/order number and key code shown on a received Humana Military—TRICARE Referral/Authorization fax. The provider ID they are requesting access for must be associated with the authorization/order number entered.
  • On-site Humana Military provider representative validation: The provider representative must enter several key codes to grant a provider immediate access to provider self-service.
  • Manual approval: If the previous options are unavailable, providers may submit an approval request to a local site administrator (usually a person who works for the provider) for the provider ID they want to access. If a local site administrator does not exist, a Humana Military provider representative will review the request and confirm or deny the right to obtain access.

Trusted site information

If you are concerned about misuse of internet access in your office, you can always designate as a trusted site. A trusted site is a website that you trust not to damage your computer. If the security level of your Internet Explorer browser is high, you may be unable to access a specific website that you trust. To access the website, add the URL to your trusted sites list or change your security level to medium or lower. When using a high security level, you need to add the web application URLs to your trusted sites list.

To add a trusted site in Internet Explorer, follow these steps:

  • In the Internet Explorer tools menu, click internet options.
  • On the security tab, click trusted sites.
  • In the security level for this zone box, you may need to do one of the following:
    • If it is set to high, use the slider to change it to a lower security level.
    • If it is set to custom, click default level and use the slider to change the security level.

Note: If you are running Windows Vista, verify that enable-protected mode is not selected.

  • Click the sites button.
  • In the field, add this website to the zone, type the URL for the trusted website.
  • Deselect require server verification for all sites in this zone and click close. In the internet options dialog box, click OK.

 Note: Mozilla Firefox does not specifically offer a trusted sites setting. However, you can set allowed sites for the limited purpose of installing cookies and add-ons. From the tools menu, select options and go to the security tab.
