After processing, an email will be sent to you as notification to begin filing claims electronically. If neither notification, nor a returned enrollment packet is received after 2 weeks, please call their EDI Department at 1-800-964-6211.



Once you have received your Submitter ID and Password from Medicaid, please call the ClaimShuttle Support Team and set an appointment for a Mailbox setup and Test Transmission to Medicaid.

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.
