Tufts Health Plan’s secure website enhances customer service for providers by delivering the information you need. With Tufts Health Plan EDI, providers can submit claims and referrals electronically, and receive electronic remittance through PaySpan® Health.
For faster turnaround and more timely payment, providers can send their EDI claims directly to Tufts Health Plan. For direct submission, a provider’s billing system is set up to dial directly into the claims system at Tufts Health Plan. Direct claim submission also includes direct support with a Tufts Health Plan EDI analyst for quick resolution of any EDI issues. There are no charges for direct claims submission.
With Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), providers can submit claims electronically – either directly or through a clearinghouse – and receive electronic remittance from Tufts Health Plan. Tufts Health Plan accepts EDI claims from all major clearinghouses. Providers send one electronic file for all of their claims to the clearinghouse. The clearinghouse, in turn, distributes those claims to all of the payers. There is usually a fee associated with using a clearinghouse.
