Electronic Transactions

Arizona Complete Health is working hard to make claims procedures easier for providers. Arizona Complete Health' Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) solutions make it easy for more than 125,000 in our national provider network to submit claims electronically. Whether on-line, through your practice management system, vendor or direct through a data feed, EDI ensures that your claims get submitted quickly.

Instead of cumbersome paper forms and time consuming mailings, you can generally submit claims in just a few moments. With the click of a mouse or a keystroke, claims can be sent electronically. You can also submit via EDI any time, making it easier to attend to patient priorities. For our complete list of Electronic Clearing House Vendors please visits the Electronic Transactions page.

Get Started

For successful EDI claim submission, you'll need to use electronic reporting made available by your vendor and clearinghouse. View our approved vendor list and corresponding payer ID numbers below. Please reach out to your own vendor on connecting through one of these channels. Arizona Complete Health returns claims acknowledgments back to the clearinghouse with notifications of acceptance or rejections of individual claims. Providers can review these reports to check the status of their submission.

If you have not met your assigned Provider Engagement Specialist or do not have their contact information please email to obtain this information.

Arizona Complete Health has further streamlined our business processes to improve claims procedures. Providers can now register to receive Electronic Remittance Advices (ERA). These features streamline claim processing, reduce administrative work and improve provider satisfaction by reducing claims-related problems.

ERA files give providers details regarding multiple claims. ERA improves providers' business office workflow by allowing the adjudicated claim information to be automatically posted to accounts receivable systems. Arizona Complete Health will send an ERA to any provider who registers with Arizona Complete Health and with a clearinghouse. ERA is available in all Arizona Complete Health service areas.

Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) automates the distribution of funds into providers' accounts using Automated Clearinghouse (ACH) processing. EFT is the electronic mechanism used to instruct Depository Financial Institutions (DFIs) to move money from one account to another. Many formats are available for the actual data in the electronic message, and different formats apply at each stage. EFT is safe, secure, efficient, and less expensive than paper check payments and collections.

  • Elimination of paper checks – all deposits transmitted via EFT to the designated bank account
  • Convenient Payments & Retrieval of remittance information
  • Electronic remittance advices presented online
  • HIPAA 835 electronic remittance files for download directly to a HIPAA-Compliant Practice Management for Patient Accounting System
