Availity launches changes to our Medical Attachment submission tool
- File size – each attachment can be up to 10 MB with a maximum of 30 MB as the file size limit
- The addition of logos in your dashboard make it easy to quickly identify each payer
- The Medical Attachment tool will be retired from the Availity Portal soon, so we encourage you to start utilizing the ‘Attachment – New’ option now. Once a date has been determined for the Medical Attachment Tool retirement we will begin communication.
Other features of the updated medical attachment include:
- The ability to submit an itemized bill
- A different link tilted “Attachment – New” where you will now submit medical records when Anthem has requested additional information to process a claim
- A new link on the attachment page called “Send Attachment” will allow you to start the process
- A record history of each entry provides you increased visibility of your submission
The Medical Attachment tool makes the process of submitting an electronic documentation in support of a claim, simple and streamlined. You can use your tax identification number (TIN) or your NPI to register and submit solicited (requested by Anthem) medical record attachments through the Availity Portal.
NOTE: We will continue to keep you informed of upcoming changes to the ‘Attachment – New’ platform as we progress toward streamlining our electronic documentation functionality.
