Benefits of setting up a clearinghouse
There are two main benefits you gain when connecting your CentralReach account to a clearinghouse. The first, you can send out your claims electronically within CentralReach. No need to do this on third-party websites or portals. The second, you can receive payments in the form of an ERA (electronic remittance advice), directly in your CentralReach account. You can view, observe, notate, reconcile and ultimately post payments instantly with the click of a button.
Connecting CentralReach to Waystar
In order to link Waystar to your CentralReach account, you will need to first enroll and then they will provide you with an SFTP username and password.
When setting up your account with Waystar, be sure to have them turn on 277/999 files.
EDI 277 is used by healthcare payers to report on the status of claims previously submitted by providers. Information provided in a 277 transaction generally indicates where the claim is in the process, either as pending or finalized. If finalized, the transaction indicates the disposition of the claim – rejected, denied, approved for payment, paid.
EDI 999 is a transaction set that is used to confirm that a file or claim was received. It also includes additional information about whether the received transaction had errors. Having these turned on allows for seamless communication between CentralReach and Waystar.
