Digital transactions cut administrative tasks in half
Please note, this communication applies to Anthem HealthKeepers Plus offered by HealthKeepers, Inc.
Introducing the HealthKeepers, Inc. Provider Digital Engagement Supplement to the provider manual
Using our secure provider portal or Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) submissions (via Availity*), administrative tasks can be reduced by more than 50% when filing claims with or without attachments, checking statuses, verifying eligibility, benefits and when submitting prior authorizations electronically. In addition, it could not be easier. Through self-service functions, you can accomplish digital transactions all at one time, all in one place. If you are not already registered, just go to EDI or the secure provider portal (Availity).
Get payments faster
By eliminating paper checks, electronic funds transfer (EFT) is a digital payment solution that deposits payments directly into your account. It is safe, secure and will deliver payments to you faster. Electronic remittance advice (ERA) is completely searchable and downloadable from the Availity Provider Portal or the EDI 835 remittance, which meets all mandates of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) — eliminating the need for paper remittances.
Member ID cards go digital
Members who are transitioning to digital member ID cards, will find it is easier for them and you. The ID card is easily emailed directly to you for file upload, eliminating the need to scan or print. In addition, the new digital member ID card can be directly accessed through the secure provider portal via Availity. Providers should begin accepting the digital member ID cards when presented by the member.
