CAQH Announces Addition of More Health Plans in EFT and ERA Enrollment Tool

CAQH issued a press release on June 17, 2014, announcing the participation of several additional healthcare payers in their Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) and Electronic Remittance Advice (ERA) Enrollment Tool. The EFT and ERA Enrollment Tool offers providers a single online enrollment hub that eliminates the need to enroll in EFT and ERA separately with each health plan (payer).  Individual enrollment by the providers with all health plans the practice accepts is a major barrier to provider acceptance of EFT and ERA.

CAQH currently has 12 health plans that are either already using the EFT and ERA Enrollment Tool or are in the implementation process. Nearly 30,000 providers are using the enrollment tool to reduce redundant enrollment and CAQH continues to enroll about 1,000 providers per week. There is no cost to providers to participate in the EFT and ERA Enrollment Tool. For more information or to participate, visit the CAQH EFT and ERA Enrollment Tool site.
