We can now process 276/277 requests (claim status). If this is a transaction you would like to utilize please make sure to enroll with the payer.

 

 

Waiting for a Response

Once the complete provider enrollment has been received, the enrollment will be processed. Processing will take up to two weeks from the date of receipt. After processing, a confirmation will be sent to you as notification to begin filing claims electronically. If neither confirmation nor a returned packet is received after two weeks, contact the Technology Support Center toll-free at 1-866-311-9184.

 

Testing

Once you have received your Submitter ID from NGS, please call the Claimshuttle Support Team at 602-439-2525 and set up an appointment for Mailbox setup and Test Transmission. You will need to call CEDI for the initial password that goes with your Submitter ID. Please make sure you provide that password to us immediately as it does expire if not used. Please have 25 test claims ready for testing. Test files should consist of a variety of claims that represent the type of claims you will be submitting once production status is achieved. Test claims will not be processed for payment, but will be validated against production files, therefore, they must contain valid patient procedure, diagnosis, and provider information.
