Eligibility Benefit Request and Response (270/271)
Posted 12/20/2013; Updated 7/07/14
Since March, 2014, the HIPAA ASC X12 005010X279A1 Eligibility Benefit Request and Response Transaction (270 request/271 response) has been available. The 270/271 transaction allows providers to determine whether a particular subscriber or dependent is on file with the plan, and their health/dental care eligibility and benefit information. While this transaction can verify an individual’s eligibility and benefits, it cannot provide a history of benefit use.
This transaction is available through Emdeon Business Services LLC®, which is a Phase I and Phase II CORE-certified clearinghouse. Emdeon hosts these transactions on behalf of our health and dental claims administrator. The Payer ID is OKSTE for all claims for HealthChoice, Department of Rehabilitation Services and Department of Corrections.
