electronic processes (EFT)

electronic claims

Effective July 1, 2013, all network providers are required to submit claims electronically rather than by paper format. Submitting claims electronically will ensure compliance with the terms of the Minimum Practitioner Network Participation Criteria as well as lower costs and streamline adjudication. This effort is consistent with the health care industry's movement toward more standardized and efficient electronic processes.

Key advantages to submitting electronically are:

  • Earlier payments;
  • More secure submission process;
  • Reduced administrative costs
  • Less paper storage.
