After processing, a confirmation will be emailed, faxed, or mailed to you as notification to begin filing claims electronically. If neither confirmation nor a returned packet is received after two weeks, contact the EDI Help Desk by emailing: EDIHelpDesk@BCIdaho.com
When you have the information from Blue Cross and are ready to submit your test claims, please call the ClaimShuttle Support Team at 602-439-2525
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. After you submit a test file, you will need to email their helpdesk to have them review the file. Once any errors have been resolved, you can request production approval so you can begin sending real claims.
