Move away from handwriting EDI Agreements

More and more insurance carriers are getting away from handwriting and requiring EDI agreements for clearinghouses get completed electronically. Either type writing them (does anyone own a typewriter any more???) or by electronically completing the forms.

RelayHealth offers a online Collaboration Compass to complete EDI Agreements electronically. For medical offices that use clearinghouses it's wise to use the Clearinghouses software to complete all EDI agreements for electronic claims and electronic remittance advice to prevent any kick outs from insurance carriers.

The following list of insurance carriers are requiring electronic completion of forms and will no longer accept handwriting (except where the providers signature is required)
