Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)

Amerigroup uses Availity as its exclusive partner for managing all electronic data interchange (EDI) transactions. EDI, including electronic remittance advices (ERAs) and electronic funds transfers (EFTs), allows for a faster, more efficient and cost-effective way for providers to do business.

EDI lets you:

  • Process claims faster by submitting electronically and fixing errors early with in-system notification and correction.
  • Reduce overhead and administrative costs by eliminating paper claim submissions.
  • Upload files through file transfer protocol (FTP) or directly in Availity as a batch or single claim submission.

For Amerigroup in Availity, you can complete the following HIPAA transactions:

837P Healthcare Claim: Professional
837I Healthcare Claim: Institutional
837D Healthcare Claim: Dental
