Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)

Availity has been designated as a no-cost option to operate and service your EDI entry point (or EDI gateway). This designation will ensure greater consistency and efficiency in EDI submission.

Who is Availity?

Availity is well known as a web portal and claims clearinghouse, but they are much more. Availity also functions as an EDI gateway for multiple payers and serves as the single EDI connection.

Your organization can submit and receive the following transactions through Availity’s EDI gateway:

  • 837 — institutional claims
  • 837 — professional claims
  • 837 — dental claims
  • 835 — electronic remittance advice (ERA)
  • 276/277 — claim status
  • 270/271 — eligibility request

Get started with Availity:

  • If you wish to continue using your current clearinghouse, please work with them to ensure connectivity. Otherwise, no action is necessary on your part.
  • If you wish to submit directly to Availity, setup is easy. Go to the Availity Welcome Application and begin the process of connecting to the Availity EDI Gateway for your EDI transmissions.
