Latest updates to EDI gateway migration
Anthem Blue Cross (Anthem) has designated Availity to operate and serve as your electronic data interchange (EDI) entry point or also called the EDI Gateway. The EDI Gateway is a no-cost option for our providers that choose to submit their own EDI claims to Anthem. If you prefer to use a clearinghouse or billing company, please work with them to ensure connectivity.
As a mandatory requirement, all trading partners who currently submit directly to the Anthem EDI Gateway must transition to the Availity EDI Gateway.
Do you already have an Availity User ID and Login? You can use the same login for your Anthem EDI transactions.
- Log in to the Availity Portal and select Help & Training | Get Trained. In the Availity Learning Center, search the Catalog by key word “SONG” for live and on-demand resources created especially for you.
If you wish to become a direct a trading partner with Availity, the setup is easy.
- Use the Availity Welcome Application to begin the process of connecting to the Availity EDI Gateway for your Anthem EDI transmissions.
The Availity Quick Start Guide will assist you with any EDI connection questions you may have.
