Availity Clearinghouse

Commercial Claims
Availity LLC is one of the largest EDI Clearinghouses in the Nation. Availity optimizes information exchange between multiple health care stakeholders through a single, secure network.
If we cannot provide you with a direct connection to a payer, we will help you enroll with Availity so you can still submit your claims via Claimshuttle directly to Availity, who will then forward your claims to the appropriate receiver.

It is very easy to send electronic claims to Commercial Payers using Claimshuttle. Just give us a call at 602-439-2525 and we'll guide you through the process.

The link below will take you to Availity's official payer list.

What to do next


Step 1

Once you have received your web portal password from Availity, please log in to their website at www.availity.com. You will be prompted to read three agreements, create three security questions, and change your password. Please make a note of your new password. Once you have completed those steps the main page will open. On the left-hand side click on "Account Administration", then click on "View Overall Security Profile". In this screen you will find your Organization Identifier (it should be your tax id.)


Note: If you submit claims to BCBS of Florida you should see a "BCBSF SENDER ID" here. Write it down and give it to the Claimshuttle Support Tech that you will need to work with for Step 3. Confirm your profile is correct and log off.


Step 2

Please call the Claimshuttle Support Team and set an appointment for a Mailbox setup.



Signing up for EOB's with Availity

To view which payers are able to route ERAs through Availity, you must search for the Payer ID or Name on the Availity Payer List. You will need to logon to your Availity Portal at www.availity.com to enroll for Electronic Remits.


 There may be Payer Specific Forms that you will have to choose from in order to receive ERA’s from a certain payer via Availity instead of the Multi-payer form.


If the form requires you to enter your Genkey (now called a Customer ID), you can find your Customer ID in your Availity portal account, on the top of the page, under your Name, you should click on "who Controls my Access." A box should appear, and you should then see your customer ID. You can also contact Availity and ask for your customer ID.


If you have any questions regarding registration, please call the Availity EDI Technology Support Center at 1-800-282-4548, option 2.
