EDI and PC - ACE PRO 32 - billing software

ELECTRONIC DATA INTERCHANGE (EDI)

The Administrative Simplification Compliance Act (ASCA) requires that providers submit claims to Medicare electronically to be considered for payment, with a limited number of exceptions. If a provider meets one of the exceptions, the provider is waived for a period of two years.
Exceptions to this requirement, include:

•Small providers, defined as a physician, practitioner, or supplier with less than 10 full time equivalent employees

• Roster billers of Medicare covered mass immunizations

• Claims for payment under Medicare demonstration projects when information is required that cannot be submitted electronically

• Claims where Medicare is the tertiary payer to two (or more) primary payers , and

• Dental claims.

Hey,EDI is anything but simple - and I don't believe this is just a question of whether or not you use it on a VAN or on the Internet. The fact that XML is both self-describing and (often) human-readable is a large difference - an EDI message can only be understood if both parties have agreed what, exactly, they want to communicate.EDI is a process which allows one company to send information to another company electronically rather than with paper. Business entities which conduct business electronically are called trading partners.
