Availity EDI Clearinghouse Plans: Base and Comprehensive

Many payers in the Availity network sponsor EDI transactions through Availity, while other payers do not, so we only pass on transaction fees to submitters when necessary. We offer the largest network of free payer transactions in the industry and competitively priced access to the rest of the payer market. All submitters—providers, vendors, and other clearinghouse customers—can select the network plan that’s right for their organization.

Getting started is easy:

For Providers, vendors, or billing services that submit less than 2000 transactions a month, Availity offers two EDI Clearinghouse options for connecting to payers, shown on the left. Our EDI Clearinghouse Service allows you to submit batch files via your claims processing software to health plans. These plans are exclusive to EDI transactions and do not affect the list of payers you see in the dropdown list on the Provider Engagement Portal. If you would like to select the base or one of the comprehensive plans, click here.

*Note: You need a portal account to access the selection tool. If you need to register for a portal account, click here. All new portal customers are automatically enrolled in the Base Plan, and have the option to upgrade to receive additional payer connections.

For vendors or other high-volume submitters (typically more than 2000 transactions a month) who require additional configuration options or already have direct clearinghouse connections, we offer additional contracts to suit your needs.
