Wps Trading Partner Claims Agreement
A sender is the entity whose sender ID is associated with the submitted health data. This is most likely the provider, hospital, clinic, provider, etc., but it can also be a third party submitter on behalf of one of these entities. However, a bidder must be directly linked to each billing NPI. Often, the terms bidder and trading partner are used interchangeably because a trading partner (TP) is defined as the company involved in the exchange or transfer of electronic transactions. Thus, the company that submits electronic administrative transactions to WPS Health Solutions is a business partner of Medicare FFS. Provider/Supplier – the company that provides services to beneficiaries and submits health claims to Medicare. A vendor is a company that provides hardware, software, and/or ongoing technical support to covered companies.

An EDI business partner is any entity (supplier, billing service, clearing house, software provider, employer group, financial institution, etc.) that transmits or receives electronic data to another entity. Medicare FFS (Fee-ForService) and WPS Health Solutions support many types of business partners or customers with Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). To ensure proper registration, it is important to understand the terminology associated with each type of customer. Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) is also available for TRICARE For Life. The EFT replaces the paper cheques you currently receive for TRICARE For Life claims payments. When you register for efT, you must receive your explanation of benefits (EOU) data either through the Electronic Remittance Notice (ERA) or our TRICARE4u website, as your paper LOBs end 45 days after EFT activation. If you wish to use EFT, you must complete an online electronic EFT form with WPS. Once the completed agreement form is received, WPS completes the pre-note process with your bank to ensure a hassle-free transition to EFT for your office.
WPS encourages your office to take advantage of EFT. Qualified SUPPLIERS in the Eastern Region of TRICARE can enter requests for transmission to WPS in the portal and consult the transfer instructions. Additional registration is required to link to Availity`s WPS Business Partner ID before sending complaints to Tricare East. You need to call them directly for help at this stage. When you register for EFT, WPS claims payments are deposited directly into the bank account(s) of your choice. EFT payment transactions are reported using the CCD+ file format, the recommended industry standard for EFT payments. CCD+ is a NACHA Automated Clearing House (ACH) enterprise payment format with a single 80-digit complementary recording feature. .
