Molina Healthcare Providers, Get Started with Availity Essentials Today


Availity Essentials (Essentials) is the secure provider portal for Molina Healthcare*. This website is for Molina Healthcare providers to learn about how to get started with Essentials and begin utilizing the latest time-saving tools. Here are some of the features that are available in Essentials for Molina Healthcare providers:

  • Eligibility & Benefits
  • Patient Search
  • Attachments
  • Appeals
  • Claim Status
  • Quick Claims
  • Claims Correction
  • Payer Space
  • Overpayments

*Non-Healthcare (Atypical) providers will maintain access to Molina’s legacy provider portal at this time. However, we urge you to move your business to Essentials now to avoid financial and administrative interruption to your business.


Get Started with Availity Essentials

If your organization is not yet registered for Essentials, you will need to designate an Administrator for your organization who will be responsible for registration, user set up, and managing user access. This person should have legal authority to sign agreements for your organization

If you are the designated Administrator for your organization, click the Register with Availity button. By submitting the registration, you agree to be an Administrator for your organization. Once you have registered your organization and are set up with your own account, you can add additional users to your organization. From Essentials, click Help & Training | Find Help. Click Administrator in the left-side menu and select the Adding Users help topic. You can also check out the Availity Essentials Onboarding Training resource to sign up for a 30-minute live training webinar and we’ll walk you through the Essentials registration process.

If you are NOT the designated Administrator for your organization, do not register your organization for Essentials. Your designated Administrator will determine who needs access to Essentials on behalf of your organization and will add user accounts in Essentials.

If you are not sure who will be the designated Administrator for your organization, share this information with your manager to help determine who will be the designated Administrator for your organization.

For registration issues, call Availity Client Services at 1-800-AVAILITY (282-4548). Assistance is available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. ET – 8 p.m. ET
