    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 checks to arrive in the mail. In addition, it eliminates manual processes such as sorting and opening mail and reconciling paper-based claim payments.

    Simplify Reconciliation
    Once enrolled in ePayment, you will continue to receive paper Explanation of Payment (EOP) statements for up to 45 days, after which the 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.

    Claim Editing Rules

    About ClaimsXten: On March 1, 2021, the 1199SEIU Benefit Funds upgraded the comprehensive claims auditing software to ClaimsXten version 2.2.2. ClaimsXten utilizes the National Correct Coding Initiative (NCCI), which includes the Procedure-to-Procedure (PTP) and Outpatient Code Editor (OCE) edits, as well as Medically Unlikely Edits (MUEs). The NCCI was developed by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to promote correct coding methodologies and limit improper coding and other inappropriate reimbursements. All code and NCCI data is updated quarterly, at a minimum. For additional information on NCCI, please visit the CMS website here.
