If you filed a claim with VA directly for Veteran care, you can check the status of your VA claim through the VA Customer Engagement Portal (CEP). CEP is a reporting tool that allows registered users on demand access to claims status (HCFA 1500 or CMS 1450) and information about past, current, and future payments.
CEP uses two-factor authentication for secure bulk of multiple tax identification numbers and for querying and reporting as it relates to claim status, payments, check information and Treasury offsetss.
If you filed a claim with TriWest Healthcare Alliance or Optum United HealthCare, please refer to their web tools or their customer service lines to obtain information about the status of those claims.
