The contracting requests page is the default landing page when logging into SureLC Onboard. This page lists all contract requests at various stages of the contract submission process before being sent on to the carrier for final review. These contract requests can only be sent from agencies using SureLC who have access to the designated carrier. The details of each contract request listed here need to be reviewed by TPA/Carrier admins to ensure carrier requirements have been met. Approved requests can be released to the carrier for final review while rejected requests will be declined.
Use the following links to learn more about the information contained in each section:
This tab lists ALL contracting requests that are ready to be reviewed by the TPA/Carrier admin with the total number of pending requests. In the following example there are 4 contract requests ready to be reviewed. The following information is provided with each request:
