Claims Status

CEP System Outage Notification

We apologize to those of you who have been unable to access the Customer Engagement Portal (CEP). CEP access is being restored for existing users in a phased approach. Existing users will be contacted once their account has been restored. At this time, we are not accepting new users.

We understand many of you rely on this online platform to obtain claims and payment information. We are working to restore the portal to more users as quickly as possible. In the interim, users unable to access the system who are seeking claims status or payment information normally obtained through CEP should contact a customer support representative at the VA Financial Services Center.

If you filed a claim with VA directly for Veteran’s 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 research, claims (HCFA 1500 or CMS 1450) status, and information about past, current, and future payments.

The Customer Engagement Portal (CEP) offers two-factor authentication for increased security, bulk upload capabilities for providers with multiple tax identification numbers, and enhanced querying and reporting capabilities as it relates to claim status, payments, check information and offsets.
