Enrollment and Agreements

The Enrollment Process

All clearinghouses and providers who submit claims directly to BlueCross® BlueShield® of South Carolina or BlueChoice® HealthPlan must complete the appropriate Trading Partner Agreement and EDIG Enrollment form to receive a Trading Partner ID for claims submission and other transactions. There is one Trading Partner Agreement for clearinghouses and another for hospitals and physicians who wish to transmit claims and other transactions directly with us.

Enrollment Process for Direct Transactions

 

  1. The clearinghouse or provider completes the appropriate Trading Partner Agreement and mails it to the address on the bottom of the form.
  2. Once the Technology Support Center receives the completed agreement, an authorized representative will review and sign the Trading Partner Agreement, file the original and return a copy of the agreement to the Trading Partner.
  3. The EDIG Trading Partner enrollment form is sent to the operations department for assignment of the Trading Partner ID number. Please allow three to four days for processing.
  4. After assignment of the Trading Partner ID number, the contact person identified on the EDIG Enrollment form will be notified by e-mail or phone with production and test Trading Partner ID numbers.
  5. Call BlueCross EDIG Operations at 800-868-2505 to request the passwords and all other information required to begin transmitting once the ID numbers are received. 

Enrollment for Providers Using a Clearinghouse

Providers who will use a vendor or clearinghouse for submission of claims should complete only the Trading Partner Agreement portion of the agreement for health care professionals. Mail the agreement to the address indicated at the bottom of the form.

Once the completed agreement is received by the Technology Support Center, an authorized representative will review and sign the Trading Partner Agreement, file the original and return a copy of the agreement to the Trading Partner.

If you have further questions about the enrollment process, contact the Technology Support Center.
