ELECTRONIC CLAIMS

The Health Plan accepts both professional and institutional electronic claims through its clearinghouse Emdeon. The HP uses Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) for electronic claims submission. EDI eliminates the need for your office staff to prepare claims manually or re-key repetitive transaction information. There are no paper forms, envelopes, or stamps.

Submitting a Claim

Claims can be sent directly to Emdeon. To do this, you must be a customer. To enroll in Emdeon call 1-800-845-6592. Claims can also be sent by your clearinghouse. To do this, your clearinghouse must have a forwarding agreement with Emedon. This arrangement allows your clearinghouse to pass the claims on to Emedon so that the HP can receive them. You will need to contact your Clearinghouse to see if this arrangement exists.
