Electronic Claims Submission (EDI) FAQ
How do I enroll in EDI?
To enroll sign and return the EDI Contract Addendum to:
PO Box 1508 Riverside, CA 92501
How long does this process take?
Once we receive the signed EDI Contract Addendum, please allow up to 15 days for us to process your enrollment. Once we submit your information to OA, you can enroll on their website at: https://cms.officeally.com/Register/Register.aspx . Once enrolled, Office Ally will provide you with a User Name and Password within 48 hours of submitting the enrollment request. If you are currently enrolled with Office Ally, you do not need to enroll again.
Why should I consider EDI?
1. You will have the ability to check claims status, eligibility and benefits online.
2. Claims submitted electronically, depending on the line of business, are historically paid earlier than paper claims.
3. Reduced postage and other paper related expenses while increasing efficiency.
4. Minimize claim rejections and resubmissions.
What if I don’t have billing software?
For providers without billing software, Office Ally (OA) offers a free, online entry tool. This tool allows you access to a blank, electronic HCFA on the OA website at https://www.officeally.com.
You type data into it the same way you would a paper HCFA. Additionally, this tool allows you to store patient, facility and provider information so you do not have to re-type the same information over and over.
