    Electronic Payments

    The 1199SEIU Benefit Funds have selected Change Healthcare (formerly known as Emdeon and Capario) as their electronic payment and remittance reporting provider. There is no cost to you to use Change Healthcare ePayment and enrollment is free.

    Get paid faster with EFT payments
    With Change Healthcare ePayment, you can accelerate your reimbursement cycle since you don’t have to wait for your checks to arrive in the mail. Plus, it eliminates manual processes like sorting and opening mail, reconciling paper-based claims payments, creating deposit tickets and making trips to the bank.

    Simplify Reconciliation
    Once enrolled in ePayment, you will continue to receive paper Explanation of Payment (EOP) statements for up to 45 days after enrollment, after which the 1199SEIU Benefit Funds will generate a downloadable HIPAA-formatted 835 ERA file through your respective clearinghouse. You can also use Change Healthcare Payment Manager, an online application available for Change Healthcare ePayment users, to view and print EOP images.
