Recommendation: Time is not on your side. If you are concerned about your money flow and what is coming in it's imperative you complete these EDI Agreements with RelayHealth ASAP. Think of EDI Agreements as going to Disneyland. You arrive early to find that all of LA must be sleeping in today because the Park is empty. You have free reign to rides, assistance, friendly employees. A couple of hours later you notice that you are now standing in lines (no more running through them) but it's still not bad. By mid-day you feel that everyone from LA is at Disneyland it's taking you a hour to stand in line to ride a 3 minute ride.
**Moral of the story is it pays to be first in line and get this out of the way before you try and do it when everyone else is trying to complete EDI Agreements. Also the later you take in completing them the possibility of processing issues, missing documents or worse they are so inundated with EDI Agreements they prevent doctors from registering until they complete the ones they have on file.
