Effective April 1st, 2017 Prominence Health Plan will no longer be routing their incoming consumer calls to Accolade. Accolade, a third party organization, started assisting Prominence members in September 2015. As a result, consumers received more streamlined assistance with their policies. Their role in the past few years was to provide customer support to insured members of Prominence. Accolade’s personalized approach to the customer service concept allowed insured members to designate a specific representative for all questions. This representative also assisted members with claims issues and internal appeals.
Over the past few months, Prominence also revamped their services and products to maintain a competitive position in the market. After Accolade’s brief partnership with Prominence, the insurance company will now be deferring customer service phone calls to a local on-site call center. Even though Prominence will be changing call centers, the member services phone numbers will remain the same. Prominence members enrolled in HMO plans should continue to call (775) 770-9310. If you elected a PPO plan through Prominence, you can reach their customer service department at (775) 770-9312.
