Point of Care

Point of Care (POC) is a medical management tool that is available to network participating providers. Providers use POC to process authorizations for Virginia contracts.

If you already have POC access, please log in to Availity to continue.

To enroll your organization for POC access, visit the Point of Care New Access Request page and complete the form. You will need this information:

  • Your organization name and address
  • Federal Tax ID number(s)
  • The name(s) of the POC administrator(s) who will coordinate the use of POC at your organization. For each administrator, you will need the person’s name and date of birth; the last 4 digits of their social security number; and their business phone number and email address
  • A legally authorized representative to electronically sign the request form.
  • If you are a designated agent, you will also need the request code you received from POC Registration. 

Once your organization is set up, the POC administrator(s) you designated can set up access for individual employees.

Please allow 3 to 5 business days for us to process your request. We’ll notify you by email once the request is finalized.  

If you have questions, please call us at 866-755-2680 (select option 2, then 1)
Mon. – Fri. 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST

Based on the change(s) you’re requesting, you’ll need some or all of this information:
