Electronic data interchange (EDI)

Electronic data interchange (EDI) is the computer-to-computer exchange of business documents in a structured format. EDI provides a faster and cleaner method for delivering time-dependent data, saving you time compared to filing paper claims.

Provider disputes

You have the right to request an appeal of a claim decision. You may request this appeal on your own behalf or on behalf of a covered member.

Claims Payment Systemic Error (CPSE) report 

A CPSE is defined as a systematic incident causing claims to adjudicate incorrectly, which could result in underpaying, overpaying, denying, or suspending claims. When this occurs and impacts five or more providers, or has the potential to impact five or more providers, Anthem will report CPSE data on our Ohio Medicaid provider website. Before submitting a complaint, providers should check the plan’s Claims Payment Systemic Errors (CPSE) report for the issue in question.
