Two ways to enroll

Electronic claims payment offers you several advantages over traditional paper checks:

  • Faster payment processing
  • Reduced manual processes
  • Access to online or electronic remittance information
  • Reduced risk of lost or stolen checks

With electronic funds transfer (EFT), Humana deposits your claims payments directly into the bank account(s) of your choice. We also will enroll you for our electronic remittance advice (ERA), which replaces the paper version of your explanation of remittance (EOR).

Fees may be associated with electronic transactions. Please check with your financial institution or merchant processor for specific rates related to EFT or credit card payments. Check with your clearinghouse for fees associated with ERA transactions.

About EFT

When you enroll in EFT, Humana deposits claims payments directly into the bank account(s) of your choice.

EFT payment transactions are reported with file format CCD+, which is the recommended industry standard for EFT payments. The CCD+ format is a NACHA Automated Clearing House (ACH) corporate payment format with a single, 80-character addendum record capability. The addendum record is used by the originator to provide additional information about the payment to the recipient. This format is also referenced in the ERA (835 data file). Contact your financial institution if you would like to receive this information.

Fees may be associated with EFT payments. Consult with your financial institution for specific rates.

Humana delivers 5010 835 versions of all ERA remittance files that are compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA).
