Advantages of using EDI
Several immediate advantages can be realized by exchanging documents electronically here are a few:
Ability to submit 24/7
L.A. Care accepts all claims electronically, including professional and institutional related submissions 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Reduction of data entry and payment errors
Claims submitted electronically benefit from earlier detection of billing errors. If your claim fails due to any pre-pass edit, the claim is returned back to your office for correction. This editing reduces the likelihood of your claim being rejected or denied for payment once it enters the processing system.
Immediate verification of claims received
Receive immediate acknowledgement of claims received and confirmation through your clearinghouse within two days as to if claims have been accepted or rejected.
In order to take advantage of EDI, you'll need to register with one of the following clearinghouses and reference L.A. Care’s Payer ID “LACAR”.
