What is Electronic Data Interchange?

Why submit claims electronically?

  • Electronic claims are not subject to postal delays.
  • Claims may be transmitted 24 hours a day and seven days a week.
  • Electronic claims are faster and more accurate.
  • Electronic claims are acknowledged by BlueChoice HealthPlan through notification and error reports, which are placed in your electronic mailbox.
