Send medical attachments through the Portal
Are you tired of faxing and mailing medical attachments? If you’re working from home, it’s even more difficult without access to the office’s fax machines, printers, and postage meters. With the Availity Portal, you can electronically submit medical attachments to your payers for claims, prior authorizations, and quality measures. Not only will you save time printing and copying records, but submitting attachments electronically can streamline processes, which helps organizations get paid more quickly.
Update your provider profile
If COVID-19 has permanently changed your practice’s operating hours, the location where physicians see patients, or any of the demographic information that helps patients find you, make sure you update your provider profile and submit the verifications in the Availity Portal. Keeping this information up to date helps ensure the accuracy of provider directories, which is especially important for providers who see patients on Medicare, Medicaid, and ACA plans.
Submit claims with Availity EDI Clearinghouse
Availity offers the largest network of free transactions in the industry and competitively priced access to the rest of the payer market. Learn the basics of electronic transactions and how your organization can get set up to submit them through Availity.
Get better insight into remittances
Remittance Viewer in the Availity Portal now offers better visibility into your organization’s financial information. Make sure you’re taking advantage of all the new features, including the ability to view payment details, deductible information, patient responsibility, and more.
These are just some of the available courses. Make sure to check out the full catalog in the Availity Portal.
