Empire BlueCross BlueShield supports the following batch formats claims:
ANSI ASC X12.837I version 4010A1
ANSI ASC X12.837P version 4010A1
Empire offers a new biller testing service. New billers may send a small (50 – 100) batch of claims. The test file is processed through a front-end test system to validate file format and high level Empire BlueCross BlueShield business edits. Reports will be generated detailing any errors. The trading partner is responsible for downloading reports. Testing will continue until the file received is 95 percent error free. At that time the trading partner can be moved to production. Questions on the results of this test should be directed to the EDI Helpdesk.
