EDI 270/271

EDI 270/271 Healthcare Eligibility and Benefit Response

Healthcare eligibility and benefits inquiries/ responses require detailed information that is required to be HIPAA-compliant. To meet these requirements takes accuracy and timeliness that can only be found in using EDI systems. 

The EDI 270 is sent by healthcare service providers to insurance agencies or government entities, including Medicare and Medicaid. The EDI 270 typically includes items, such as:

  • Details of the sender
  • Name of the recipient
  • Information on the plan subscriber
  • Description of eligibility or benefit information requested

The EDI 270 is used alongside the EDI 271. An EDI 271 document includes all of the requested information from EDI 270. This is one of the most used combinations of EDI documents in healthcare, making it vital that the information is documented and transitioned seamlessly. 

At Effective Data, we offer various EDI healthcare solutions that ensure HIPAA compliance is met, a secure environment is used, and documents are transferred quickly and without issue.
