EDI Gateway migration
Empire BlueCross BlueShield HealthPlus (“Empire”) has partnered with Availity to become our designated EDI Gateway, effective January 1, 2019.
What does this mean to you as a provider?
All EDI submissions currently received are now available on Availity. Please note, there is no impact to provider participation statuses and no impact on how claims adjudicate.
Contact your clearinghouse to validate their transition dates to Availity. If your clearinghouse notifies you of changes regarding connectivity, workflow or the financial cost of EDI transactions, there is a no-cost option available to you — You can submit claims directly through Availity!
Register with Availity
If you wish to submit directly through Availity for your 837 (claim), 835 (electronic remittance advice) and 27X (claim status and eligibility) transactions, please visit https://www.availity.com to register.
We look forward to delivering a smooth transition to the Availity EDI Gateway.
If you have any questions please contact Availity Client Services at 1-800-282-4548, Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Eastern time.
