Emblem Health HIPAA Claims Electronic Submission
Emblem Health HIPAA Claims are received from thousands of health care practitioners that eliminated paper claims and are submitting electronic claims in HIPAA-compliant professional provider (837P), institutional provider (837I) and dental provider (837D) EDI claims transaction formats. When billing electronically, please allow a reasonable amount of time to complete your account receivable reconciliation process. Ensure that your billing system is not set up to automatically re-bill every 30 days. Many times the payment for the original claim was applied to the copay or the service was denied for medical necessity, eligibility or another reason. Please make sure that your automated billing system accurately posts patient responsibility data and claims settlement messages. Ensure that your billing system does not automatically generate a paper claim. This duplicate billing practice is costly and delays processing.
