Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is the computer-to-computer transfer of transactions and information using a variety of communication methods. BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York encourages you to submit your claims electronically for improved productivity and cost efficiency.
Why submit claims electronically?
BlueCross BlueShield accepts all types of claims electronically (Professional and Institutional), including adjustments. Note: Claims with attachments can not be sent electronically to BlueCross BlueShield at this time.
How to get started:
BlueCross BlueShield has contracted with Administrative Services of Kansas (ASK) to act as our upfront clearinghouse for electronic claims.
