In today’s busy world, just trying to keep up is challenging. Busy health care professionals will appreciate an easy way to follow up on the claims they have submitted while awaiting payment. Did you know you can use the same software that you use to send your health care claims to also automatically send a request for status?
With some adjustments to the mapping of your outbound EDI 837s (Health Care Claims) document this is possible. Your EDI Consultant can assist you in capturing information containing the details necessary to send an EDI 276 (Health Care Claim Status Request) transaction while also mapping your EDI 837s. We can then pull the information from the claims that were processed, and generate the EDI 276 to send to your trading partner.
In response your trading partner will send back an EDI 277 (Health Care Status Report). Once you have received these details, we can work with you to find the best solution for processing these details for your business. Don’t worry if this sounds complicated - it’s just one of the many solutions that the EDI Professionals at 1 EDI Source, can assist you with. Give your EDI Consultant a call today and he or she will be happy to discuss this with you.
